Fine Line Floral

 I love this sentiment, Flowers Are Always A Good Idea - because they are!  They instantly brighten a mood whether on a card or in a bouquet.
 This is another card made with the  Fine Line Floral Bundle from Concord & 9th, only without the dies, just a one layer flat card.

Lots of color to make it pop and a little Copic shading.  I love a good one layer card that does not require extra postage!

I Knew You Could Do It!

 Everyone deserves a piece of cake for doing a good job, right?  Just a little celebration!
This is another card using Piece of Cake stamp set and Piece of Cake Honey Cuts Dies from Honey Bee Stamps. These are such fun pieces to color - lots of mix and match parts. 



This is a cute little stamp set and die set.  Lots of options for friendship, birthday, wedding, any occasion really...and who doesn't like cake??

Waffle Flower Gift Bag Die and Bunny

Oh you know how much I love tiny things and this little bag by Waffle Flower is just that - tiny!  This one is called the Waffle Flower Gift Bag Die and can be made to any width you need.

I folded this one flat because it was for a gift card, but you can create as wide of gusset as you need.  The bag is 3-1/2" x 2-1/2", so I would think 3" would be the biggest and still stay proportional.  Therefore measuring 3-1/2" x 2-1/2" x 3".  
Perfect for candy or a small gift!




The adorable bunny stamp is by Rubber Hedgehog and can be found HERE.


I created the background with The Stamp Market Jumbo Plaid Background stamp and FSJ Tin Pail ink.
The bunny is from Rubber Hedgehog.
The flowers are from Altenew Beautiful Day Bundle stamp set and colored with Copic Markers.

Fine Line Floral Bundle

This is a pretty one to play with - the  Fine Line Floral Bundle from Concord & 9th.
You can use the stamps and dies together to layer as shown below or alone as I showed in THIS posting earlier in the week. 





 So soft and pretty, don't you think?  This ink color is called Rouge from Altenew and the background floral is in Tin Pail ink from FSJ.  I added a couple Nuvo drops for texture in Simply White.

I Wish You The Most Beautiful Day!

This is such a pretty sentiment that you could send it for most any occasion.  This one is from Altenew's Beautiful Day Bundle.  I absolutely love this floral set and I'm trying not to use it on everything!


I cut a circle in the card and put a piece behind it stamped in Tin Pain ink with the Concord & 9th Barnwood Background.  The top panel is popped up on Foam Squares.


The sentiment is on Black Licorice cardstock and embossed in white.

It is Concord & 9th March New Product Release Day!

 Guess what day it is?  
It's Concord & 9th's March release day!  Yay for new products!  I have several things to show you, but we will start with a couple of my favorites - Birdie Talk Dies, Big Thanks and the Fine Line Florals. 


This little birdie is just a die set. You can mix and match all the colors and parts and make bluebirds, redbirds, chicks... the sky is the limit.
I created the background with the Dotted Bundle stamp set.  This set has little parts and pieces that you can use to stamp in and around the holes to create interest within the dots.  You can see a little bit of it on the box...but I covered most of it up.  It has 2 dies as well to cut out a few holes, make borders and all kinds of fun things.
The Big Thanks is a cool die - I love this one!  It has a stamp set, but I've used only the die here.  I cut it in white and added dimension with Glossy Accents.


The Birdie Talk Dies have a coordinating Birdie Talk Turn About stamp set that is absolutely adorable.  
You definitely need both. *Ü*


7 piece die set that coordinates with Birdie Talk Turnabout™ stamp set. This cute die cut bird is larger than the stamped birds to really stand out on your cards. There are two birds for a reason...use the open image to start building your bird on. Die cut it in white card stock which will create a white eye, and highlights around the bird. Then die cut the solid bird from any color of your choice. The bird detail pieces are connected together so the beak and legs would be the same color, and the eye, wing and back feather tips are another color. Add the bird on a branch, or use on its own. Stamp sentiments inside the word bubble or drop in the die cut sentiment - which can be used on its own as fallout letters too!


6x6 Turnabout™ stamp set with 6 images that coordinates with Birdie Talk dies. Create a springtime, whimsical background with 4 turns, in 4 colors of ink with this new Turnabout™ stamp. Sentiments can be added to your cards using the word bubble die, or even stamped on the inside of your cards. Stamp set includes an alignment aid. 

This fits both landscape AND portrait on your cards!


6x8 stamp set with 25 images that coordinates with Dots & Hearts dies. Stamp your large polka dot background and fill-in with many different options such as patterns, candy, citrus, ice cream cones, flowers, ornaments, etc. Build phrases around the words "happy" and "you" such as "happy for you", "happy birthday", "just for you", "just because". Polka dot stamp is slightly larger than a card front so that it will bleed off the card giving you a full color, card front image.


2 piece die set that coordinates with Dotted Fill-In stamp set. Dots die will line up with your stamped dots to die cut random holes a few times across your card. Use the ends of the die with the half circle and straight edge to line up against your stamped dots for alignment. You can also flip the dots die around for even more random die cut holes. The strip of hearts also die cuts the polka dots going up and down, or use the fallout heart pieces to add hearts to your cards at random. Dies can also be used on their own for designs on your card fronts, or even larger confetti for your shaker cards!

 I wanted to try a rainbow floral card for this one, so I cut and cut and cut the flower in all the colors of the rainbow.  I layered a darker and lighter color on top of each other, laid them around the card and trimmed what was hanging off.



6 piece die set that coordinates with Fine Line Florals stamp set. For best results, use a card stock shim with these dies due to their intricate design.
These dies can be used at least 2 ways. Stamp the large floral spray on your cards and add the detailed dies on top of the coordinating flowers, or create a die cut spray on your own. 

 Fine Line Floral Bundle

6x8 stamp set with 14 images that coordinates with Fine Line Floral dies. Put your watercolor skills to use with this fine line floral spray, or use the detailed floral images to fill in 3 of the flowers, leaving 5 of the flowers uncolored for a modern look. You can also use the detailed floral images on their own to create your own smaller spray, or background on your cards. Stamp the spray once in a corner leaving a large area for stamped sentiments, or stamp a few times at random to fill up your card front. There are two smaller flower centers to add if you choose to, and splatters to add that extra design touch.
I cut a Big Thanks die in black and added it with foam squares.  I filled in a few spots with super sparkly clear jewels for accent.


Look how fun all these flower petals will be in a shaker card!
