Hello! I can't believe it's already my second post for Concord & 9th's Feature Friday! Today myself and the other ladies are showcasing the Beautiful Branches stamps and dies! This is a fantastic all occasion set and I love the script sentiments! Gorgeous! I made three projects again this week - I will share them along with some of the supplies I used!
Here's my first project! I started with a piece of Neenah Desert Storm and used Hero Arts white embossing powder for the branches. The flowers are with Simon Says Stamp Ultra Fine Steel Navy embossing powder and I used Zing! copper metallic embossing powder for the centers. I stamped the sentiment and embossed it with the copper powder three times to add a ton of dimension. I felt the card was empty, so I added a bunch of Antique Rose Nuvo drops. As you can see...one of them got a little big and wonky. I got out of hand! But I wasn't going to trash the whole card because of one mistake!
I love all of the shine!
My idea for this card was to have hanging lights from the top of the card...but it didn't look how I imagined it, so I tweaked it to be winter berries! I stamped and embossed the branches with the Zing! copper embossing powder and embossed a bunch of berries with Hero Arts white powder - same with the sentiment. I added red centers to each of the berries with Autumn Red Nuvo drops.
It's not what I had planned for...but I like the result anyway!
I saved my favorite for last! I know it's not spring...but I couldn't resist a bright and springy card! I stamped the branches with Versafine Onyx Black and added the flowers with Simon Says Stamp Steel Blue, Thistle, and Wisteria inks and the centers with Slate ink. I was going to leave it as is...but it needed another pop of color, so I added leaves using Simon Says Stamp Catkin and Willow inks.
I wish I had stamped the sentiment lower. It looked a little off - so I tried to fill in with some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear sequins!
Thanks for coming by! Stay tuned for more projects using Concord & 9th stamps and dies!
