Concord & 9th

Toucan Paradise card featuring Concord& 9th

Tara’s Toucan of  My Appreciation card features  the Toucan Paradise stamp set from Concord & 9th.  Raya here sharing some oldie but goodies with you while Tara is on the move.  I think if I was moving my craft stuff is the last stuff I’d pack and the second I’d unpack. Kitchen first can’t unpack or craft without coffee!

Tara’s original post —

Happy Tuesday, and happy birthday to ME! I’m definitely feeling another year older this year, but every day I wake up is a gift I am grateful for! I want to take today to share a TOUCAN of my appreciation with you. Yep, I’ve got another card (actually TWO) featuring the fun Toucan Paradise stamp set by Concord &9th, together with Distress Oxide Inks.

I’m so grateful for each of you that visits the SNS blog every Tuesday to see what I’ve been up to! I’m making an effort to share more on Instagram and here on my personal blog this year. I’ll try to mix things up and keep the inspiration coming… so I hope you’ll check those out too! I’ll be having a little giveaway on my Instagram account, so come visit me, msespresso, there!

Card Elements

Today’s card has a lot of the same elements you might remember from the one I shared a couple weeks ago. This time I went with Abandoned Coral as my main accent colour. The rest of the colours are actually the same, isn’t it amazing how changing one colour can give it a much more feminine feel? I also added a few stripe details & the leaf outline in Pumice Stone, which really lightens things up! I love the addition of that pale grayish tone in the mix!

Simple Stamping

My second card was made ultra simple to coordinate with the first. It was inspired by a CAS (clean and simple) challenge on instagram to stamp ‘along the edge’ of your card. I’m loving the foliage in this Toucan Paradise stamp set, so I used just the leaves & flowers for this card. I’ve noticed that most cards people share as CAS are on a white base, but I think a kraft card can still look clean 🙂 This simple design will look great on white as well, so I’ll be duplicating it in the near future, I’m sure!

Thanks again for stopping by to see what I made! I hope you’ll look me up (msespresso) on instagram- follow me & leave a comment… perhaps I’ll be sending you some happy mail soon!

Inky hugs,

Tara

A Colourful Birthday!

It’s a colourful day on the blog! I’m sharing a birthday card for today’s Random Acts of Cardness challenge: COLOURFUL! (I went birthday today, but this prompt certainly works for Christmas in July cards, too!) Here’s my card:


I’m using stamps and dies from Concord & 9th called Top It Off. (stamps here and dies here) I love how I was able to fill the entire card front with the cake and toppers. The cake and candles are stamped in various colours of Memento ink – with the help of Versamark on the cake layers so I could sparkle them up with embossing glitter! For the candles, I glitzed up their flames with Liquid Stardust – if you haven’t tried this, it easily adds the most beautiful shimmer wherever you want it! Of course, I was trying to photograph this on a thunderstorm-y day, so I couldn’t come close to capturing the glitter and shine. The “eat cake” topper is cut from purple cardstock. The card base actually comes from a blue cardstock pack, but it’s a purply blue. 😉


I have to show you the inside of my card, as I used one of my favourite parts of the stamp set:


Birthday cake, yum… 😀

Ink-Blended Happy Birthday – and a Giveaway!

Happy Friday! Lindsey here with my first ever post for Scrap ‘N Stamp! So it’s a happy day for me, and I hope it is for you too, as I have a colourful birthday card to share… and a chance to win some fun paper crafting supplies! Here’s my card:

Rainbows and gold are hard to beat, even if it is after St. Patrick’s Day! I’d never attempted ink-blending a panel before hot foiling, so I decided to give it a try. For my rainbow, I used distress oxides in spun sugar, festive berries, wild honey, bundled sage, mermaid lagoon, and wilted violet.  My favourite part is flicking water onto the inks and blotting with a tissue to get all the fun splotches. Going all out, I also added some gold and black spatters, as well.
Once my panel was dry, I let my Gemini FoilPress heat up, and foiled my sentiment with gold, adding the little “to you” underneath. It still wasn’t sparkly enough, so I matted my rainbow panel on some Concord & 9th glitter cardstock. My last step (which now I realize might have been one step TOO far, LOL) was to add some black Nuvo drops on either side of the sentiment.

Have you tried heat foiling? I have a giveaway today of the Glimmer faux script happy birthday die I used for this card, as well as two rolls of Gemini foil, in gold and silver shimmer. For your chance to win, leave a comment here on the Scrap ‘N Stamp blog as well as on my blog, Bashful Blogging! You can enter until March 31st.
Thanks for checking in today, and I hope you enjoy a crafty start to your weekend!
