Concord & 9th Feature Friday -- All The Merrys Bundle & On The Diagonal Turnabout

So happy to be a Concord & 9th guest designer for October! Settle back -- I have a lot to share. But before I do, also want to link to my interview with the owners, Angie and Greg, here -- 5 years ago! 

Disclosure: all Concord & 9th products used here were provided to me by the company (thank you!!). (I had already purchased their inks and cardstocks and use them ALL the time.)

And now, cards!

All The Merrys Bundle

I love angles and typography so I am happy with how this one turned out! It was pretty simple to make. Stamped the large MERRY sentiment (using Concord & 9th inks) with the MISTI to guide placement. Ink colors: Stardust, Poppy, Sprout, Parsley, and Honeysuckle. 

Next up is a fun card that uses the big tree die and a die cut with gold foil paper to add ornaments. Hint: use glue dots to adhere the pom poms. It's just different enough without being too odd....I hope!! 

On The Diagonal Turnabout

I've never used a Turnabout stamp, and have to say now I am hooked. They make it easy to make multi colored backgrounds. This particular one appeals to my geometric loving heart! 

Went with a play on candy corn for this card. Instead of using 4 colors for which the stamp is designed, I kept it to 2 -- Buttercup and Marmalade. I only stamped the center images, using washi tape to mask off the close by images, and used small pieces of white cardstock to avoid waste. Finally, die cut the pieces with a square die from my stash to build this design. Sentiment is from another new C9 set, Buds & Blossoms

And then I made a modern Christmas card, using a sentiment from All The Merrys.

Hard to tell in the picture, but I coated the colors, Honeysuckle and Stardust, with clear Wink of Stella. Stardust + Clear Wink = Gold! 

Thanks for joining me. I'll be back for the next 2 Fridays featuring the rest of the Concord & 9th October release. 

MOOD WHEN DONE: Fantastic!

Nice, Joan! I would say that turnabout stamp is definitely for you. And the pom pom tree is so cute! Now I'm hoping I still have the pom poms I thought I'd never use. These are clever products and you've showcased them beautifully.

Joan, I LOVE that tree with the pompoms (all of these, really, but that is my favorite)! So excited when I saw your face on my Concord & 9th email this morning. I was like "Hey, I know her!"!
