Playing along with my first card challenge for 2019 at CAS(E) this Sketch #302. I used Altenew Get Well Soon stamp set and my Brother Scanncut DX1200 for the name.
Firstly, I blended Distress Oxide Inks over the background (Strathmore Bristol Paper) in Wild Honey and Crushed Olive. I then stamped the three honeycomb images in the stamp set with Altenew Honey Drizzle and Warm Sunshine.
I had designed the name with my Scanncut using the draw and cut feature and coloured with copics. The flowers and bees were stamped on copic friendly cardstock with Momento Tuxedo Black Ink and coloured with the following copic colours.
Hey Ho…welcome back. A fun card using Hero Arts ‘Woodland Creatures‘ and ‘Little Florals‘ (both older stamp sets).
This was started as a one layer card with some ink blending for the background and a small bit of masking to stamp the flowers. The flowers were stamped with Memento Blue ink as I wanted to colour them with copics. I added Couture Creations Liquid Drops 3d Pearls to the centres of the flowers but decided I wanted a bit more interest so I sprinkled glitter over the top while it was still wet.
I had previously stamped and coloured all the images from the stamp set but didn’t use them all. I adhered them in layers, some added directly to the background and others layered with foam adhesive to give some dimension. Finally, added some extra elements – the butterfly trail and the dots for the ground.
Used Concord & 9thBits and Pieces Stamp set. These stamps are leaves but the shape works perfectly for hearts. Stamped with AltenewWarm Greys mini cube set and die cut with matching die for the popped up elements. I wanted to add something to the background so in this same set is a stripe which I stamped in the same warm greys. Added the black by stamping the three berries stamp from the Concord & 9thMagnolia Wreath set. I added some Nuvo Jewel Drops in Grey Mist to these.
The sentiment is the Lawn FawnHappy Happy Happy. Loved how I could add the black into the card without it being overwhelming. That happy makes me happy!
This is the inspiration photo from the challenge and I’ve used the colours plus the branch effect. Super happy how this turned out.
This month’s Challenge for Concord & 9th is “Anything goes”.
Here is my card for this challenge. A Christmas Card using different layers of the Concord & 9thMagnolia Wreath Stamp Set and matching die. I decided to use different paper products to differentiate the layers.
Top layer: Stamped on card with Altenew Ink and then a bit of Wink of Stella sparkle. I also cut this die cut into smaller parts to enable better positioning.
Second Layer: Stamped on Vellum with Hero ArtsUnicorn White Pigment Ink
Third Layer: Plain die cut cardstock
Bottom Layer: Stamped on base card.
I used the “Joy” die from Taylored Expressions and triple embossed it with ZingMetallic Embossing Powder. The sentiment is from the same set and simply stamped in Altenew Ink. Fininshed off with a few Nuvo Crystal Drops in White (I may have gone a bit overboard on these!).
Thanks for stopping by.

Have you heard the Buzz? This is my entry for the current Color Throwdown#ctd456. A new stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps ‘Busy Bees’ with the matching sentiment set ‘Bee-You-Tiful’.
I started with stamping the background with the Concord & 9th ‘Stripe Builder’ and Altenew Crisp Dye Inks and practised my plaid background designs. I then simply stamped the images I wanted to use, coloured them with copics and cut them out with my Brother Scan n Cut. I popped the images up with various heights of foam adhesives to add extra dimension.
The extra little dotted flying lines and a few mini jewels in the centre of the flowers finish it off.

I’ve had a really busy last week and haven’t done much cardmaking so decided to use a card challenge to kickstart myself again!
I wanted to use some of my Memory Box floral dies and this colour scheme screams flowers. The Memory Box dies are great because you can use the outline alone, the outline and internal shapes together or just the internal shapes.
I first swiped Ranger Distress Inks in ‘Spun Sugar’ and ‘Picked Raspberry’ over card stock so I could die cut the flowers out. I decided not to use the stem portion of the die and simply cut that off. The dots in the centres of the flowers are Nuvo Crystal Drops in ‘Apple Green’. The sentiment, from the My Favorite Things ‘Label Love’ is stamped in Altenew Crisp Dye Ink ‘Parrot’.
I decided to make a couple more cards with the same colour scheme but a different die from Memory Box – ‘Budding Peony’ and using Nuvo Embellishment Mousse ‘Citrus Green’, ‘Peony Pink’ and ‘Pink Flambe’ instead of Distress Inks, to add a bit of shimmer.
The sentiments are from Paper Smooches and Altenew and I decided to play with the placement a bit as I had seen a fabulous card by May Park of Mayholic Design using the sentiment as the stem.
