Merry Christmas

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!  I love how this card turned out.  I even got all fancy photographing it.  This year I actually got a head start.  All my church cards are complete and I am half way done with my cards.

I love the Concord & 9th Plaid background.  It is so versatile.  Change the color ink or change the  color cardstock and you get a totally new feel and appearance.   I started with some red cardstock and stamped it with Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink.  Then I added the thin lines with Delicata Gold Glitz and used Ranger Princess Gold embossing powder.  Once I heat set it, I wiped off the residue from my embossing bag.

I die cut some black cardstock  with the Merry die  from Concord & 9th.  After stacking them I added one more layer with gold glitter paper.  Slapped on some gold sequence and I was done.

I hope you love this card as much as I do.  Be sure to watch the video to see what it would look like with gold foiled cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by!

Team Tuesday with Ceal

Hi there! 
Welcome to Team Tuesday, it's Ceal here to share a shaker card with you today featuring some Concord & 9th products. 
If you are like me the Misti is a must have when using layering and background stamps.  Layering stamps for the life of me even though they are clear I cannot get them to line up without the Misti, background well I have small hands so it's pretty much impossible for me to hold that gianormous block. So the Misti is my best friend! 
To make my card I used the Original Misti and several Concord & 9th stamps. I started with the Blooms Fill In set, Versamark Ink and Gilded embossing powder by Brutus Monroe. I inked up the Fill In blooms background with Versamark ink and embossed it in gold. I love using the Misti when embossing because it allows me to get great coverage with the Versamark. 

Next I used some Catherine Pooler inks and again using the Misti to help me line up the layers I filled in all the flowers. Using the Creative Corners helped me be able to stamp the ones along the sides. 

I love the new Bar Magnets, you now how new stamps tend to lift your paper? well if you use two of them your paper doesn't move an inch!

After I got all the stamping done on the blooms, I cut out theChristmas tree using the Trim The Tree dies. 

To finish the card, I stamped a background using the Plaid Background stamp and the greeting from the Trim the Tree set also using Catherine Pooler inks.
 I placed some acetate over the negative of the Christmas Tree and then added foam tape around the edges. I added some sequins on the plaid background and then placed the front on top.

Wanna know how I used the tree itself?  I am doing a series of 25 days of Christmas Inspiration on my blog, so Check my blog tomorrow and you'll see.
