Concord & 9th Masterclass

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 …
