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

And here is my card for the challenge. 


This card was a nightmare to photograph I cannot tell you how many different angles, or lighting I tried, the sequins really are a lot more crystal like. 
I have used Ring Wreath Die (all are linked below) and I triple die cut it out of Neenah and then adhered them all together to give some dimension. 
I then took Simons Crystal Sequins and just randomally stuck them down using some Ranger Multi Medium Matt. 
For the Sentiment I used the Merry & Bright Die from Simon and coloured it with my Spectrum Noirs and added some Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle pen and glossy accents
Once that was dry I adhered it to the wreath. 
I wanted to go for something bright and fun, but this card would look beautiful with just clear sequins or gems. The great thing about this die is that it is so versatile. 

I did have a video for this week but something went wrong in editing and I ended up with half a video ! So I will recreate this card using different sequins soon. 

 So now it’s YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

 I created two cards for this challenge.
The first one I created using just the leaves from the beautiful Hydrangea Blooms Stamp set (all supplies are listed and linked below) and the sentiment is from the Autumn Greetings set.

 I used a fun technique with ink pads for this card.Check out the video below where I show you both sets, and also how I created the card.


For the second card I used the Hydrangea Blooms set but this time I have used the main flower. In this set they have included the flowers open, like I have used below so you can colour them, or they have also included them solid so you can ink them up.

 I have heat embossed the flowers and then water coloured the whole piece using my Mission Gold water colours. I then heat embossed one of the sentiments from the set and die cut the piece out using a Stitched rectangle die. I then adhered it too a matching card base and added some sequins.

 Both of the stamp sets I have used are part of the big release for STAMPtember.

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. 
Happy Crafting
