Concord and 9th Guest Designing

** For my SugarPea Design Sweet 2 Repeat Blog Hop please scroll down**




Hi peeps!! I am back for my 2nd post for today. Surprise!! A few weeks ago, I got this awesome email that asking me if I'd like to guest designing for Concord and 9th. I didn't even have to think of my answer. I love, love, love Concord and 9th and I literally squealed with delight when I saw the email. Keeping it mum was hard!!

So, here we are and yes, I am still pinching myself. Can you feel that I am super duper excited? Hah!

Concord and 9th are trying something new here with their guest designers. There are 3 of us and every Friday for the next few weeks, we'll be featured together and showcasing the same products, that way we can show you how each of us use this set in our own style. Make sure you stop by Concord and 9th blog today to see who the other guest designers are (hint... they're awesome!)

Today, we're highlighting the new Oh, Hello Turnabout stamp set. This set is basically made with a similar concept as their Triangle Turnabout stamp set from previous month releases. I love that with this set you can easily create multi-colored backgrounds.


  


And, there' some extra images on the set, such as "hi there" and "oh, hello there" that you can use to pop-up as a focal point on the card. To see the basic on how to use the Turnabout set, check out the Turnabout instructional VIDEO and it will show  you how to line up the stamp for successful stamping!

I made 2 cards using this set. Here's my 1st card.




I am so glad that I recently upgrade to the original size Misti as it works perfectly with this set. Once I lined up the stamp on Misti I start stamping. First I stamped in teal ink, then rotate my card panel and stamp it again in green, rotate, stamp in purple and on last rotation I stamp the hello with grayish ink pad.

I just love mixing color and am loving this color combo. Once I adhere the panel to the card base, I feel like it's missing something, so I decided to add a couple birdies there using Concord and 9th By Your Side Bird Die.

I cut the birds from watercolor cardstock, so I can add soft watercolor to them. Once it dry, I adhere them to the card and added some Nuvo enamel dots.

I love this set so much, I can't stop at just 1 card. I made another one using one of my favorite color combo.




On this card, I went with my usual super CAS style as I want to convey a modern look for this set. This time I only rotate my card panel 3 times and used 3 soft colors. By only stamping it three times, it leaves more white space, which is necessary for clean & simple look. I leave it at that, adhere the panel to the card base (I did pop it for a bit extra oomph) and then simply added a couple enamel heart stickers.

This card totally make my inner CAS heart happy. Quite often less is more, right? 

Well peeps, that's all from me today. I hope you enjoy today's cards and don't forget to stop by at Concord and 9th Blog for more inspiration from my fellow guest designers. Hope you have a fantastic Friday! Cheers...
