A New Stamp Company–and a Giveaway!!


Hola peeps!!

Please read all the way through this post, as I have an awesome give away at the bottom!

I’m back today to share a couple of projects that I created with some product that I received from a new stamp company called Concord & 9th!  I had seen a few projects out in blog land featuring this new product and was immediately intrigued.  To my delight, I received a lovely invitation from Angie, one of the owners of Concord & 9th, to try out some of their product!  And I was beyond inspired with what arrived in my mail box a few days later.  Here’s what I created!

Concord-and-9th-So-Thoughtful

My first project features an amazing sentiment set called Being Classy.  I fell in love with this stamp set as soon as I saw those amazing bold words!!  This is definitely going to the front of my fave sentiment stamp sets as there are so many cool options and combos for card sentiments.  The rainbow stripes were created with a stamp from the Painted Thanks Stamp Set, and the scalloped edge on the upper white panel was created with a super cool and versatile die set called Bags & Tags.  Again, VERY versatile!!

Concord-and-9th-Teacher-Thank-You

So, this project made me absolutely giddy when I finished it!  I knew that I wanted to try foiling that amazing sentiment from the Painted Thanks Stamp Set.  To my great delight, it worked!!  I stamped the sentiment using VersaMark onto the white panel as well as the polka dot panel and heat embossed it with some Sticky Embossing Powder from Ranger.  I then ran both panels through my MINC Machine using the Heidi Swapp Gold Foil.  Aaaackkkk!!  I seriously feel like this stamp set has so many incredible possibilities – and I can’t wait to  try them!  I’ve listed all of the products that I used below.

I must say I Love love love the colorful You're so thoughtful card. Love the size of the stamps and your use of all those colors and the sequins is wonderful. The Thank you card is very nice...clean and simple but the sentiment with the touch of gold foil adds just enough pazazz! TFS

I've been eyeing that new company and your first delightful colorful card uses two of the products on my long wishlist :) The sentiments in Being Classy are fun and bold and I love how you used the paint stroke to create the colored stripes. The gold foiled thank you is delightful against your diecut apple (total score for fall AND back-to-school). Thanks for your inspiration and thanks for the chance to win some Concord & 9th dies.
