Guesting at Concord & 9th

To say I'm Over the Moon excited to be guesting at Concord & 9th this month would be an understatement.Or, how tickled I was to receive an e-mail from Angie and Greg, owners of Concord & 9th, a few weeks ago!
I have the pleasure of creating with their NEWEST release all month long:)) and posting my creations on their Blog three times.
C&9 is a year old stamp and die company that has an unspoken, unique marketing strategy of KNOWING their customers' style and allowing them, the customers, to highlight C&9's new products for releases that happen every month on the 9th. Their stamps and dies are well thought out, and in my opinion, timeless, with a hint of vintage vibe.
I feel SO BLESSED to have been asked to create with the October 2016 release:)
It's as if the entire bundle was created just for me
Check  it out!

Florals and Frames and HAPPY..Oh my!!

Hearts and Bold sentiments..WARM and COZY!!
a unique frame add-on..that I think stands on it's own:)

Three alphas in one set..Thank you, I needed this one!!

Enough talking...Here are my first three cards: 
using a little bit from everything you saw above:)

Of course I HAD to try coloring this gorgeous yellow:)) and with the Ziggys!
I have a video showing how I used the MISTI to ink up the ROSE and stamp the sentiment perfectly:)
I chose to keep it simple in it's own elegance. Using the large frame from Happy Card Frame die set to cut the clean; just 1/4" shy of an A2 sized card. Mounted with fun foam for dimension.

Here is the video:))

Then I went to town using the Happy Card Frame die set for this next one.
  Cutting several of the inner rectangles and adding the HAPPY that cuts uniquely attached directly to the frame...check out the video explaining how this works.

and Finally, I have some Mistletoe Kisses for you!!
Again, I turned on the camera to show how simple it was to color the mistletoe die cut. Then how easy it was to stamp from Perfectly Penned the word KISSES. Warm and Cozy  from COZY UP, make a fun BG repeatedly stamped in a line.
Check out my video:

Thanks for stopping by!
