Where Creativity Meets C9 - Challenge #17 - First C9 Set

It's time to ink up those Concord & 9th images for the next Where Creativity Meets C9 Challenge. This month we are using the first set we purchased. I purchased two sets the first time ... Wildflower and Beautiful Words and will be using both of them on my card today. These two sets have gotten a lot of love from me in my studio. They are two of my favorite sets!

I started with a white card panel cut slightly smaller than my card base. Using one of the flowers in the Wildflower set, I stamped a border around the outer edge of the card panel. I then stamped all of the outlined polka-dots, filling in the empty white space. Next came the coloring. I chose the bright Copic colors you see in the photo above and only colored in the flowers.

For my sentiment, I trimmed another piece of white cardstock, stamped my sentiment, from Beautiful Words, and then colored the 'BEAUTIFUL' in using the R27 Copic marker. I stamped, colored and cut out another flower and attached that next to my sentiment before adding a bit of white twine. That was attached to my card panel with dimensional foam and then more foam was added behind the card panel before attaching it all to my card base. A few sequins were added to complete it!

Thanks so much for visiting with me today! I hope you'll join us in using your first Concord & 9th set. You have until January 28th to get your project linked up on the Where Creativity Meets C9.

Happy creating!

Concord & 9th - Stuck on You

Good morning, friends. I'm happy to be popping in this morning to share a card featuring the new Concord & 9th bundle, Stuck on You. I've only just begun creating with these images and can't wait to dive in even more. I love sets that offer a wide variety of images and give you endless creating options. This bundle certainly does just that!

For my card today, I started with the cactus. I first stamped all of the images ... cactus, flowers and pot ... onto watercolor paper and then colored them in using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I stamped  my sentiment in the pot, assembled all of the pieces and then set them aside so I could stamp my card base. Using the diamond looking background strip in the set, I created a border of three different colors along the bottom and top of my card. I then attached my cactus with dimensional foam before adding a few clear sequins to complete it. 

There is a lot more Stuck on You inspiration to see today on the Concord & 9th blog. Be sure to stop by for a visit!

Have a wonderful day!
