Concord & 9th Birthday Bash Blog Hop!!!

Hello there, crafty friends!  I'm excited to be participating in the Concord & 9th Birthday Bash Blog Hop!  Throughout the month of August, Concord & 9th is celebrating their 9th birthday by having current and past guest designers share a project they've created.  

To add to the excitement, Concord & 9th is generously giving away a $20.00 gift card to use in their online store to one randomly chosen person, all you have to do is leave a comment here on this blog post telling me your favorite Concord & 9th stamp set or die.  Even if you don't own any Concord & 9th products, just follow this link to their store and browse around then come back here and leave your comment.  You have one week from today to comment, ONE comment per person please.
For my card I used the Concord & 9th stamp sets, Wildflower and You are Enough and had fun doing some Copic marker coloring.  I started out by using black Palette ink and stamped three of the main flowers.  Then on a scrap piece of paper I stamped the same flowers again and cut them out so that I could use them as a mask before stamping the rest of my flowers.  Next I stamped my sentiment from the You are Enough set and heat set  the ink using my heat tool.  I started coloring my leaves first using two shades of green (YG00/YG25), then next I colored the large pink flower (RV11/RV23/RV14/RV25), then the yellow flowers (Y11/Y15/Y17/Y38).  I moved on to the three orange flowers (Y38/YR16/YR18) and then blended in some color around the flowers and stems for a background (BG10/BG32/BG15/BG18).  To finish off my card I used some foam tape to adhere it to a white card base and then added some iridescent sequins and some Wink of Stella glitter pen to the centers of the flowers.
Thanks for stopping by and good luck!

  7. Love your card. I always forget to do a background when I'm doing flowers. You're halo effect is terrific. I, too like the C&9 stamps. Hard to pick a fave, but if I have to, I guess I'll choose Sohpisticated Script. Love doing envelope art with them!

  17. My most favorite, although there are lots of their products that I can call favorites, is the hugs die. I am always curious on how to use it and create something from it.

  18. A gorgeous showcase of this set! I often see these lovely flowers water-coloured (which is so beyond my skills!), so your copic-coloured version really has me captivated. I'll be trying them with my pencil crayons soon! Favourite sets? Aside from 'all" are this one, as well as the Floral and Flutter dies. I have a wish list 'this long' *arms outstretched*...and can't wait to see the new releases on the 9th! Thank you for the inspiration!

  92. Such a lovely card and the colors are perfect

    ReplyDelete
  93. Lynn, the only reason I have a C&9th favorite is because what I've seen designers do with their products... I'm fairly new to the online paper crafting scene, so there are lots I don't know about or have. But I've seen the Hugs die and love it and see that they have a Thanks as well... That would have to be my absolute favorite. One day I hope to own one. (Of each) 😉.
    Your card is gorgeous. I'm NOT a copic girl. I use sharpies if I use markers and it's usually on coloring books. 😂 Your coloring is amazing. TFS!

    ReplyDelete
  94. Lynn, this is gorgeous!!! I have to choose a favorite? That's so hard because they are all fabulous...but I do love and always seem to come back to the Blossom Die.
