It is starting to look a lot like Christmas! Well, not just yet. This week we were asked to create cards with focus on stamping for Scrapbook Nerd. I love making cards especially when i can mix some of my scrapbook supplies in them. So, when the new Concord and 9th stamps and dies arrived at Scrapbook Nerd, I quickly picked a few of them for the upcoming holidays. You might say that these are not a set, and you are right, I see them more as a sampler of the new stamps. Let me show you...
For this card, I used Distress oxides in Broken China, Peacock Feather, Fossilized Amber and Worn Lipstick to create the colorful background. The new Concord and 9th's Deck the Halls Turnabout stamp had a great collection of Christmas illustrations so, I chose a not so traditional color palette for the card. The sentiment, from Crate Paper's FALALA collection, is propped with some foam adhesive, some simple pearls and sequins complete the card.
This next card was created using Concord and 9th's Merry and Bright Stamp set and Distress Oxides in Crushed Olived, Pine Bough and Barn Door. The sentiment for this card comes from the new Pebbles' Bright and Cozy collection. A little bit of foam adhesive as some gold floss bring the sentiment forward,and the small fussy cut images complete this card.
For the last card, I used the Happy Plaids stamp, from Concord and 9th, and Distress Oxide in Hickory Smoke and Black Sooth to create the background of the card. Then added the snowflake die cuts from Crate Paper's FALALA collection, and a wooden sticker from Pinkfresh Studio's December Days collection.
I love how easy all of these were to put together with lovely results. Remember to stop by Scrapbook Nerd store to check these and lots more materials for all your cardmaking and paper crafting needs. AS always please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions on how this came together.
