Concord & 9th

Concord & 9th: Flowers for Featured Friday

Gosh I feel like August just flew by so fast and I’m already on my last Concord & 9th Featured Friday post! Well, I really hope you’ve been enjoying all the inspirations thus far and my last couple of projects to share with you showcasing the Flower A La Carte Bundle and Heartfelt Blossoms Bundle.

The Flower A La Carte stamp set is a pretty detailed image so I opted to color it with my copic markers. I stamped the images in a dark brown hybrid ink, colored it, and used the coordinating dies to die cut out the images.

I did a really simple ink blended background and cut it down just 1/4″ less than an A2 size. The sentiment was die cut using the Flower A La Carte dies out of brown card stock and added to the top left corner vertically. I stamped the second line of the sentiment on white card stock and trimmed it down to a strip. This was then handed next to the ‘hello’ with foam tape.

The Heartfelt Blossoms is a beautiful, beautiful set and really great for watercoloring. I heat embossed the whole thing in gold embossing powder and went back in with watercolors.

The dies will cut out the center of the image so that it becomes a beautiful frame. On a separate piece of white card stock, I gave it a soft ink blend to help the frame really shine and heat embossed the ‘grateful’ from the set in the center.

I then heat embossed ‘for your kindness’ in white onto Grapefruit cardstock and used the banner die from Harvest Wreath Dies to die cut out this stitched piece. This was added with foam tape right below ‘grateful’.
