Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #397 Anything Goes

Hey lovelies, I hope you are well 🙂 

It is Wednesday which means it is time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
It is time for a new challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

This week the challenge is
Anything Goes

This week we are showcasing
Concord & 9th You don’t have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we would love to see them used.

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store


I wanted to do something slightly different so I die cut the center circle out and used several of the stamps from Layers Of Love stamp set and then put that to one side whilst I stamped all the different flowers & leaves. These were from the Painted Thanks set and I used inks from Simon & Archival. I wanted it too look kinda messy if that makes sense and almost wild flower like…not sure if thats what I achieved
To finish off I foam mounted the panel and added some sequins. 

 So now it’s YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

Spectrum Noir tutorial Using Concord & 9th

Hey lovelies, I do hope you all have a nice weekend ? 
It was cold and wet here, but as many of you know I love the winter so for me I pulled on my fluffy pj’s and socks and crafted for most of it. 
I have a tutorial on the Spectrum Noir Blog about how I use refill inks to custom shaker material. 
The tutorial can be found here and is a quick and easy method and one that’s good for when you need a specific colour…if you are anything like me the colour I need seems to always be the one I don’t have ! 
The card I created Is a Clean and Simple Christmas card using products from Concord & 9th. 
I LOVE this Joy die, I really adore scripty font dies, but sometimes it is nice to have a nice block font. I have also used Stripe Builder Set from Concord & 9th which I stamped before die cutting. 
I used my Fuse tool for the shaker pockets as I wanted this card to be fairly flat and also as the letters are quite close together I knew foam tape would be a nightmare to try and separate the different letter areas.  I finished the card off with some Pretty Pink Posh sequins & some gems. 
I do hope you will head on over and check the tutorial out. 
Thank you for stopping by. 
Have an amazing day & happy crafting 


Concord & 9th- I think you’re delightful

Hey guys.  I hope you are all having a good week ? 
We have finally got all things electrical wise sorted so I am back to posting videos !! 
For those who haven’t check out my YouTube channel it can be found by clicking here or the link in the sidebar. 
It is a new channel with only a couple of videos, but now that I can edit videos again I have lots planned for it….if there is anything you would like to see a video on, then let me know 🙂 
I have after a long wait finally got my hands on a couple of Concord & 9th Stamp sets that I have been itching to get hold of, but there in the UK they kept selling out ! 
One of them is called Brushed Blossoms 
Brushed Blossom 
I fell in love with this set because it has so much in it ! It is a layering stamp set, but as I have shown below you don’t have to use it that way. I also love the brush font sentiments, and that a couple are something a bit different. 
I also managed to get hold of the Stripe Builder Set. 
Stripe Builder 
Which after using I am SO pleased I got hold of it, tons of potential with this set. 
This month is Concord & 9th’s 1st Birthday and they have had a ton of guests helping them celebrate….click here for their blog
They are also giving away $20 gift cards and sharing tons of inspiration. 
If you are on Instagram and search the above hashtag you will see some amazing projects, all using Concord & 9th’s products. 
I also just wanted to wish Greg & Angie a very happy birthday and know there will be lots more to come. 
For my card I decided to use just the base layer of the flower stamp in Brushed Blossoms, alone with my Spectrum Aqua Markers to create some dimensional stamping. 
  In the video below I show how I achieved the effect and made the overall card. 
Enjoy 🙂 
I hope you enjoyed the video. I have included the supplies list here on my below, as well as on the description on YouTube. 
The sequins I have used are no longer available, but I have linked to some alternatives from Pretty Pink Posh. 
Thank you so much for stopping by today, If you have not checked out Concord & 9th then I highly encourage you to do so as they really are brilliant stamps & dies.  
I hope you all have an amazing day.
