We are sponsored by the fabulous Concord & 9th and one lucky random entry will receive a $25 gift certificate for a Concord & 9th shopping spree and our favorite entry will be asked to guest-design for a future challenge!
We were super lucky to receive stamps and dies from the January Concord & 9th release to use for our “something new” creations! And lucky for you, the release is now live and you can head over to Concord & 9th to place your order…I’ll wait until you get back! 😉
Man, this was a HARD card to photograph…it’s actually gold, black, and white but it came out kinda green in the photo. But just so you know it is gold, black, and white! 😉
To start I watercolored the top half of my card with my Finetec metallic gold paint and set it aside to dry. Then I used the new Love Always Frame die with the Happy Card Frame die to create a gold glitter frame. Once the watercolored background dried I stamped the falling hearts stamp from Love Always with versafine and heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder.
Next I die-cut the sentiment banner from Love Always Frame dies with black cardstock and adhered it to the gold frame. Then I adhered the frame to the background with foam mounting tape. And finally I added a little extra sparkle with a sprinkling of metallic gold sequins!
And now it’s your turn to try something new! You can use a new stamp or a new technique or a new sketch…lots of ways to interpret this one! The challenge ends on January 29th and I can’t wait to see what you’ll create! Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and Instagram for more design inspiration throughout the month! Thanks so much for visiting and have a fabulous weekend!
