welcome back to the 12 Days of Christmas *Day 4*! I am so excited to be featuring Concord and 9th on the blog today and just a little hint that you’ll be seeing them again soon in a bonus video!!! Concord and 9th is truly one of my most favourite companies. I had the pleasure of meeting the owners, Greg and Angie, at Creativation this past year and they are fabulous!! The innovation in their stamps is incredible that I feel the need for a bonus video to show off their amazing stamps and dies from their latest release.
In today’s video, you can create cute and simple backgrounds for bulk cards. I ramble about the importance of production lines when bulk cardmaking and give lots of advice along the way to achieve the best results. Having that MISTI stamping tool sure comes in handy!
How adorable are these plaid background stamps? I mentioned in my video that because I used a pigment black ink, things got a bit messy with the embossing powder but I kind of love the look it gave. Some areas are missing because I was cleaning up with a dry brush, some stray powder is stuck on the paper. But it gives off that traditional, vintage look of plaid.
In order for the ribbon banner to pop, I created some of my very own silver and gold paper by embossing onto white cardstock directly. Layering up your dies is such a great way to make your dies look even more special and dimensional.
If you don’t want “dome shaped” Nuvo drops and you want them to flatten, let them dry from 30 minutes to an hour and place something on top (honestly these cards were just stacked on top of each other but they hadn’t completely dried yet) and they flatten. It gives you a whole other look!
