Cozy Up and Mistletoe

Hello! This will be my third and final post as Guest Designer for  Concord & 9th .
 I have been very honored and grateful. Thank You!

I so enjoyed using this new Cozy Up Bundle set along 
with Mistletoe Card Frame, add on die. The sentiment 
is from Happy Words 

I cut the heart twice, once with watercolor paper and once in fun foam .
The mistletoe is three layers thick and watercolored with Zig 
brush pens. Of course I had to add
some shimmer with chunky glitter! The berries are cut out of red 
velvet paper. 

The bow is cut out twice once in red and bottom layer is a dark craft paper.

The outside of my envelope!
Don’t see the little mistake of not connecting the a & r.

If you happen to like the paper trees in the background I made those with Concord & 9th 

Thank you so much for the visit today!

Christmas Birdhouse

 Lizzie Jones Lizzie has a fun video up and a beautiful
 card using this technique. 

Merry Monday #219 {Birds}
Hello! Hope you all had a nice weekend!
We took a drive up to the mountains to see the fall colors.
It was beautiful! We were blessed with a storm and lots of rain here in CA.

 I blended the background  with an old brush and a mix of spring rain inkers.
 My first two attempts were way too dark.

I always knew I was going to mix these two sets (Winter Village and Post & Parcel) 
and create a birdhouse . 

Thank You!

Serendipity Stamps

Hi there again! 
 One random commenter will  have a chance to win $20
 certificate to the Serendipity Stamps Store!

 I heat embossed this beautiful stamp in gold and only colored the pumpkin and leaves, using my Zig pens.

This was fussy cut!  I cut apart my sentiment as I didn't want to cover up the wheat. I may add “give” on the upper corner for Thanksgiving. The sentiment stamp is beautiful and I can’t wait to use it again without cutting it apart. You should have arrived from Karen Amidon blog and next is Miriam Napier blog

The sale this week will be free shipping on US orders of $25 or more- good Wed the 19th through Sunday the 23rd.  There’s no coupon code  required.

Fun With Make it Monday

Melissa Phillips created some beautiful cards on her MIM
video, using stencil shapes made from die cuts.

Good morning friends!

I created my stenciled background using a die left on 
my desk from this; Card Here

I used the Make It Market Kit: Post & Parcel Kit! (Sold Out)
You could buy the paper and fussy cut this out.
No stamping on this card, today! I added some Nuvo Crystal
Drops and chunky glitter on the mailbox.

I had this little post all made up from when I first got the kit, it was adhered to a tag, I took it off so
 I could add it to this stenciled background I created, on Papertrey Ink vellum . 
Again I learned another fun technique from the amazing designers at Papertrey Ink ! 

Thank you!

Second Post for Concord & 9th with Watercolors

Hello again ! I hope you all had a nice weekend!
I am sharing my second post for Concord & 9th today using :
 This set is amazing and can be used in so many
different ways! I know I maybe said that in the last post 
but worth saying again!

 The card above is a shaker using layers of the framed edge from the Happy Words Set
 glued to the base. ( I think I have 4 layers and one frame on top)
 colored with my Zig Brush Pens. This would be pretty in fall colors too! 
I just cut the inside out to create many layers of the frame.

The card above is adhered with foam tape around the frame and just a few tiny pieces of 
foam tape under the watercolored bloom.  Again I used my Zig pens
and a watercolor pen.

You can make so many phrases with this fun and beautiful 
set , it’s so well thought out, to get the most use for your money.

Happy Words BUNDLE

Thank you so much for taking time to stop by!

I was beyond excited and honored when I received an email from Angie ( the owner) of C& 9th,
asking if I would be interested in GD for this months new release! 
I said yes almost before I finished reading the email.

I made this note gift set with matching embossed envelopes. These are single paged notes , 
10 notes and 10 envelopes all banded together with a vellum bellyband.

Each note is cut 4 by 5 1/4 then I rounded the edges.
You can go a bit larger is you want .
The die cut bloom is colored with my gold Deco Color Premium Marker .
