Hello friends! I am so happy and honored to guest design for Concord & 9th this month!! Their products are so special and a different style for me to try. I am a fan of their scripty sentiment stamps – Being Classy and By Your Side. Their font is just so pretty!
As an April guest designer, I will show you the cards I made using their new April release. Today, I am featuring the Crazy Awesome stamp set. Here is my first card with a bold design. After all, only rainbow colors can convey CRAZY AWESOME-ness…
I used a homemade circle stencil to sponge in different distress inks to give a vibrant background. Then, I white heat embossed the large focal point image on black card stock and fussy cut it. I sandwiched a piece of vellum in between and finished with some embellishments.
Besides the big bold circle, the Crazy Awesome stamp set also has some clean and bold sentiments – “adorable”, “creative”, etc. I wanted to use different colors to convey their meanings. So, this is what I came up with.
- Start with white heat embossing the four sentiment words. I have used my MISTI tool to help align them
- Blend some distress inks on the panel. I used red/peach colors for “awesome”, orange color for “adorable”, purple/blue for “creative” and yellow for “kind”. I think these colors convey the meanings of the sentiments. Add some water droplets for texture
- Use some dye inks to stamp “you’re” corresponding to each sentiment’s color
- Die cut the panel with MFT Die-namics Blueprints 25. Embellish with some Pretty Pink Posh clear sequins
I hope you like my cards today. Both designs have my favorite cheerful looks 🙂
