Good morning! Today is the 9th, which means that we have a new Concord and 9th release and a new challenge for you on the Where Creativity Meets C9 blog! This month’s challenge is Layers… so many ways to interpret that prompt. Love it! Here’s my take on it:
I used the Snowflakes Turnabout that was released last month to do some stamping and pearlized embossing. Have you tried using Distress Oxide inks to stamp and emboss? The effect is really lovely, and you suddenly have a huge stash of colored embossing powder in your stash! I love pairing the Oxides with pearl embossing powder. I stamped the Turnabout twice, once with Blueprint Sketch, rotated it 180*, then stamped again with Lilac Shadow and added the Pearl Embossing Powder. It creates such a lovely color in combination with the Oxide inks.
Next, I die cut a large glitter snowflake using the Snow Flurry dies. I added them to the sides of the snowflake panel, adhering them with liquid adhesive. I stamped a greeting from the Snowflake Turnabout using Blueprint Sketch Oxide ink, embossing it with the same pearl embossing powder, then trimmed the panel and popped it up on the snowflake card front using dimensional foam adhesive.
A few Amethyst crystals from Pretty Pink Posh finished it off.
Well, that’s all for today’s project! Now, for some challenge details. I hope you are inspired to bring out your Concord and 9th products to create a project inspired by the color inspiration photo! Simply create a project, link it up to the Where Creativity Meets C9 blog post by September 29, and you could have a chance to win a $25 shopping spree to the Concord and 9th store! One winner will also be chosen to be a guest on an upcoming challenge!
