Hi there! Today is the last Friday of September, which unfortunately means this is the final Feature Friday for my guest designing with Concord and 9th. It’s always an honor to work with one of my favorite companies promoting their beautiful products, and this month has been so much fun working with their gorgeous holiday release! Today’s projects are a bit more traditionally colored…. I couldn’t let the month go by without a little red and green! Today, we are focusing on the Holly Berry Turnabout and Stocking Stuffers.
For my first project, I created a little mantel scene the gorgeous, detailed Stocking Stuffers stamps and dies and Shiplap Sentiments stamp set. I first stamped the stockings and their stuffers using Intense-ified Black ink on some Copic-friendly cardstock.
After I’d colored the stockings, I used the Shiplap Sentiments to stamp some light gray lines on an A2 card base. I also used a light gray Copic marker to add some shadows beneath the lines to add a bit of a 3D effect. I adhered the stockings and their stuffers on the card front using some foam tape.
I heat embossed a greeting from Stocking Stuffers on some olive green cardstock and added it to the bottom of the card using some more foam adhesive.
For my second project, I used the same raspberry and olive color scheme with the Holly Berry Turnabout. I stamped it on a white A2 panel, then trimmed down the panel and mounted it on a piece of A2 gold foil cardstock from the Neutrals Foil Paper Pack.
Next, I used the Holly Berry Dies to die cut a greeting using some olive green cardstock, which I backed with some heavyweight vellum. The busy background overshadowed the detailed sentiment die cut, and the vellum helps to soften the pattern and allow the greeting to be more visible. I mounted it in the center of the patterned panel for an easily mailed flat holiday card.
Well, that’s all for me today! I hope you’ve enjoyed my projects featuring Concord and 9th’s Holiday Release this month. I know that I’ve had a blast creating with these beautiful products! Thanks so much for stopping by today, and have a marvelous weekend!
