Plaid is so on trend this year. Concord & 9th knocked it out of the park with this Plaid Background stamp set. You can create any color combination with this unique stamp set.
I chose Crumb Cake and Island Indigo as my color combination. The sentiment is mounted on a die cut from the Concord & 9th Blooms Fill In Bundle.
Another great masculine birthday card, imagine creating the plaid with your sports fan’s favorite team colors.
Thanks for stopping by!
I need several masculine birthday cards for December birthdays. Lovely as a Tree is the perfect stamp set for a masculine card. I have been a demonstrator for five years now and I just purchased this stamp set this past summer. I believe this is one of the longest running stamp sets for Stampin’ Up! Now that I have used it I understand why it is so popular. The images stamp flawlessly.
I stamped it in Early Espresso and then using a sponge dauber blended Soft Sky for the wintery sky and a mix of River Rock (retired) and Crumb Cake for the ground. I used my Old Olive Watercolor Pencil to add some depth to the grass at the base of the trees.
The base of the card is Thick Very Vanilla card stock. The Wood Textures DSP paper stack provides the warm wood backdrop. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Brushstroke Sentiments.
I hope you have a fabulous week!
The day after Thanksgiving we pull out our Christmas decorations, put on holiday music and begin celebrating the Christmas season. So I will kick off the holiday season on StampinMojo with this card inspired by the Global Design Project Sketch Challenge.
The sentiment from SU Tags & Trimmings was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed in Basic Black Embossing Powder on Vellum. The holly is from Concord & 9th’s Ornamental Stamp Set. I used SU Stampin’ Blends (Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive) to color the holly. I am loving coloring with these markers, it is so easy to blend the color it really makes you feel like an artist.
The sentiment inside was purchased as Paper Source some time ago. Don’t you love the sentiment?
I hope you are already enjoying celebrating the season with your family and friends.
Happy Thanksgiving! Just a quick post to wish everyone a wonderful thanksgiving stuffed with love and happiness. While it hasn’t been the easiest of years here at the Gleeson house, we remain grateful for all the wonderful people and happenings in our life. We are truly blessed.
I have become obsessed with Concord & 9th’s releases lately. Today’s cards were created as thank you notes to friends who made my birthday a very special event for me. The centerpiece to these cards is the new Dahlia Stamp and Die set from Concord & 9th. I was swooning over this when I saw it and could not wait to get my hands on it.
Each card was created using Stampin’ Up! Note cards and envelopes (whisper white and very vanilla) and SU inks. The Dahlia stamp is a turnabout stamp which allows you to ink each turn in a separate color.
The sentiment here is from the SU All Things Thanks stamp set. I adore the simple font.
Here you can see I used the coordinating Dahlia die to emboss the petals rather than another set of inked petals. There are endless combinations to make this stamp set look different.
Thanks for stopping by! Happy Thanksgiving,
