Hello...Playing with Concord & 9th: Part 2
This is the 2nd post I have tonight - I have been playing with the Concord & 9th stamp and die set: Orange You Sweet. I challenged myself to use this only this set today. Here is my second set of cards. The first will be entered into the Where Creativity meets c9 Challenge 12 : Anything goes.
The fruit stamps on this set are a constant source of fun for me!
I stamped the watermelon on CS with pink pigment ink. I used 2 shades of green for the rind, Twisted Citron and a pine-ish green from HA Monthly kit. I then stamped with Versamark and clear embossed for the shine. I used some green glitter paper to cut out the sweet from the die set and glued on top of 2 more I had cut from green paper. I put on a die cut postage stamp panel and stamped the "You're So" directly on the background. This card is 3.5 x 2.5 as I have been experimenting with different sizes than the traditional A2.
I made a second card that is so similar I will not be entering it into the contest:
I used the same technique (and the other half of the watermelon) to make this Thank you card. Same size as the other one, but the background is made from a stitched rectangle die. I love the ease of this stamp set, the cards make themselves.
Thanks for listening!
