A few days ago, I did a Card & Product Showcase… and I am back with another today. I won’t be doing these often, but thought it would be a great way to showcase several Concord & 9th products that I think are excellent. Most of them are from their newest release, but some are from previous ones and I just hadn’t had a chance to use them.
My first three cards showcase the versatility of the Concord & 9th Mosaic Turnabout Stamp (C9 | SSS). This stamp is amazing! You turn it and stamp it four times to get a colorful background. And you can even take the center out for more options! (Be sure to watch the video to better understand how it works.) For my first example, I used the inside and outside portion of the stamp together and created a colorful background using Gina K Designs Ink. I then used my Hero Arts Infinity Circle Dies and Spellbinders Embossing Mat to impress circles in the pattern.
For a bold sentiment, I stacked three black “fabulous friend” die cuts from the Concord & 9th Fabulous Phrases Dies (C9 | SSS)… and covered them with Tonic Aqua Shimmer Pen and Tonic Crystal Glaze. I also added little die cuts from the Concord & 9th Mosaic Turnabout Stamp (C9 | SSS) and Lucy’s Cards Candy Bright Pearls.
My second card also features the Concord & 9th Mosaic Turnabout Stamp (C9 | SSS)… but this time I just stamped the outside portion. In the center, I added a circle and ring cut from the Concord & 9th Everyday Circles Dies (C9 | SSS) and “just because” from the Concord & 9th Just Because Die Set (C9 | SSS).
Above and below the sentiment, you can see little stitched rays. That is from the Concord & 9th Everyday Circles Dies (C9 | SSS). I like how it draws attention to the sentiment. Oh – and I stamped the envelope flap with a large heart image from the Concord & 9th Love Always Stamp Set ( C9 | SSS).
My last card using the Concord & 9th Mosaic Turnabout Stamp (C9 | SSS) shows stamping the center portion only. I added impressed circles around it with Hero Arts Infinity Circle Dies and a Spellbinders Embossing Mat. The “hello” is from the Concord & 9th Everyday Circles Dies (C9 | SSS).
I used the Concord & 9th Hearts and Love Die Set (C9 | SSS) to create the “love sentiment”… and impressed the thin love die with my Spellbinders Embossing Mat. The “you’re my favorite” is from the Concord & 9th Love You So Stamp Set (C9 | SSS). A sweet sentiment! The “love” hangs off the card, so I cut a little off the card width so it still fits in the envelope.
The new Concord & 9th Wonderful Florals Stamp (C9 | SSS) and Die Set (C9 | SSS) are simply brilliant. By using them, you can quickly create what looks like an elaborate card. I stamped the “wonderful” image with black ink and added quick coloring.
I also used the coordinating “wonderful” die and my Spellbinders Embossing Mat to impress the letters.
My last two cards feature the Concord & 9th Monogram Stamp Set (C9 | SSS) series. Yes – they have a mini stamp set for every letter of the alphabet plus a heart! The stamp sets come with the littler flower images to quickly stamp a floral cluster near the letter. So pretty!
I used a stitched rectangle die from the coordinating Concord & 9th Monogram Dies (C9 | SSS) along with my Spellbinders Embossing Mat to impress around the stamped block. I also added pearls and Tonic Aqua Shimmer Pen.
