We’re in the middle of the second class in the summer Masterclass series happening over at StampNation. The current class is called Unexpected Layering and is being taught by Concord & 9th. The first week of class has been great!
The owners of Concord & 9th, Angie and Greg, sent complimentary products to some of us on the StampNation design team. It was so incredilby kind of them, so I definitely want to send out a big thank you to both of them!
For my card today, I used one of the products I received from Concord & 9th, along with another product from them which I already had in my stash. I started by creating my own quasi-rainbow background paper using the various scribble circles from their Orange You Sweet stamp set. I stamped them on some white cardstock using inks from Catherine Pooler in It’s a Girl, Party Dress, Tiara, Tiki Torch, Melon Ice, and Aquatini.
Next, I used the Say Hello Dies to create my focal sentiment. I cut the shadow hello using Basic Black cardstock and the thin hello using Melon Mambo, both from Stampin’ Up!® I adhered the thin hello to the shadow using a Quickie Glue Pen from Sakura.
To tone down the background a bit so it wouldn’t overpower the sentiment, I cut a piece of vellum to the same size as the stamped panel (3-7/8 x 5-1/8″). I ran the vellum through my Xyron to cover it with adhesive then adhered it over the stamped panel. I then matted the panel using a piece of Basic Black cardstock cut to 4 x 5-1/4″.
To assemble the card, I took one of the white card bases from Catherine Pooler and adhered the matted panel to the card base using tape runner. I then adhered the layered hello die cut to the card using foam tape and than completed the card.
Thanks again to Concord & 9th for the wonderful goodies. I’ve really had fun playing with them! If you aren’t a member of StampNation yet and want to take the Concord and 9th Masterclass on Unexpected Layering, we would love to have you join us!
Until next time …
