Sending Warm Wishes

Hello there!  Today I have a slimline card using dies from super sponsor Trinity Stamps stamps from The Greetery that I had been saving (hoarding) since they came out last fall.  I paired them with some new inks that I had just purchased from super sponsor Concord & 9th and I’m so pleased with the result!

First I die cut a slimline scalloped panel using the Slimline Series: Scalloped Card Panels & Banners die from Trinity Stamps and then die cut windows into the panel with Slimline Series Stitched Card Panels & Windows dies  and 110lb Neenah cardstock in solar white and plain vellum.  I love this cardstock because it is so easy to ink blend and copic color on!  I ink blended Distress Oxide ink in speckled egg onto the panel- someone may have to take that color away from me- I always tend to grab it to use on my cards!

I die cut the coaster (Greetery, Cozy Cup Coaster die) out of Lawn Fawn speckled yellow cardstock and stamped a sentiment with Memento ink in tuxedo black.  The cup of coffee (Greetery, Cozy Cup stamp set) is stamped with new Concord & 9th ink in grapefruit and sorbet & Lawn Fawn ink in crunchy leaf and then die cut (Greetery, Cozy Cup die set).  It took me a few times to line everything up right- don’t feel frustrated if it doesn’t work out the first time- it helps to use a MISTI and stamp out several images so that you are guaranteed to get at least one perfect one to use!

The branches with leaves (Greetery, Cozy Cup stamp set) are stamped with new Concord & 9th ink in parsley and sprout.  Again, I stamped multiple images to ensure that I got a few good ones; the MISTI was so useful to re-stamp with the same color ink multiple times. The spoon took me several tries as well and I stamped the entire spoon with My Favorite Things ink in Grout Gray (the darker portion was just stamped many times with the same color).

I hope that you will try out the new Concord & 9th inks, I enjoyed using them and will definitely be buying the larger size ink pad.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I wish you a creative day filled with coffee!
