On this card I used the celebrations dies for the bow on top of the mistletoe and the Red Berries.


You might think this set is only for Calendars, 
but they made sure us card lovers could use the set too!


I just love the little pieces for smaller flowers

Concord and 9th Die and stamp set release - Celebrations!!

Good Morning Everyone! I am super stoked to be designing for Concord and 9th with their December release. Today I am featuring the Celebrations stamp and die set. This die is genius and I just LOVE the itty bitty tags that come with the Die Set!


Price: $27.75
This die is so much fun to work with. If you already have Concord & 9th's HUGS die this one works the same way. If you haven't used these dies before, there is a Video showing how to use the die.    
                                                                                                                                                                                                           




Here I used the striped stamp to decorate the package. Can you see the itty bitty tag!? Isn't that just adorable! I used the big gift ties and added a piece in the middle to fill it out and doubled up the rows. 

Hint: These also make beautiful flowers


Here is a photo of the card being opened


This is how card looks on inside. Aren't the Celebrations die set and stamps adorable!!


On this second card I outlined the gift and on the little tag there is a scroll under "for you". That part was made from the balloon string




On these cards I used the Sentiments from Celebrations, The flowers in the background are from the "You are Enough" stamp set. They have been embossed in white and the Vellum overlay has a scalloped bottom from the Bags and Tags Die Collection! 





Happy New Years everyone!!

Concord and 9th Pretty Petals Stamp and Die set - December release

So this month I had the incredible opportunity to Guest Design for Concord and 9th.  I was impressed by Concord and 9th's stamp and die sets from day 1! The December 2016 release is no different! They stay on trend, but they are like your favorite pair of shoes! Classic enough to work with any outfit yet will never go out of style!

We are having a little baby girl in the Trilck family soon (not me! Our Cousin) and we are all so excited!!



So, you know I have to make her something! This is one of the unfinished frames that you can purchase at Michaels for a buck. I painted it black and once dried, went back over it with my white pigment stamp pad. When that dries, grab your new Concord and 9th stamps and dies and decorate! 


This bundle can go with anything! The Large Flower can simply be stamped with it's layering pieces (below: Bottom Left in Yellow),  It can be stamped and cut with the base die (above in yellow), it can be stamped and using the die outline the petals (as in below: bottom right) or you can stamp everything and cut out with the outline and petal dies, cut out petals, then in a darker color, cut out the outline and  Re-insert the petals from 1st image (below: on top)


There are several other ways to use this set, but I have more 2 more amazing stamp sets and a a Die set to work with that will blow your mind!

Seriously, if you haven't seen this release, it's one I wouldn't want to miss!

Right at Home Stamps - Be a pop of color



For todays card I used a Crafters Companion background die. I cut it in both black and white cardstock, however, since I made my base card in black I used to black one as a stencil to reinsert the the negative images, and saved the die cut bits and pieces from the Black cardstock for another project.


I then created a Rectangle Frame by using two of the rectangles from the MFT Pierced Rectangle Stax. I used washi tape to temporarily adhere them to the cutting plate exactly where they needed to be and wouldn't move. I also die cut the orange cardstock from the stitched circle and cut the banner by hand. 





Carefully Cut across the "be a pop of" and cut off, and the same with the "in a black and white world" In Black Ink Stamp them onto the Circle and banner and use clear embossing powder to heat emboss. Using Clear really brings out the details.









Cut a piece of plain White Cardstock to fit card under frame. Stamp "color" in red ink and add red embossing powder. Heat Set. As you can see (from photo above) the Sentiment stamps are not filled in, so to make it look that way, I colored in the rest of the image with a Red pigment marker and heat embossed the inside of the word as well.



Then, to give it some shimmer I went over it with a versa marker and used the Judikins Iridescent embossing powder to Heat Set the world Color. For a little character hand drew some circles and dots all over the sheet in the Versamark and heat embossed with the Iridescent embossing powder, giving it almost a Bokeh effect.




I am adding my card to the following challenges:
