concord & 9th july 2022 release

Have you seen Concord & 9th's fabulous new stamps and dies this month? They really are fab and I know because they've asked me to guest design for them this month so that means I get to show & tell you all about it. YAY!

Today let's chat about the Triple-Step Hi Bundlethe Double Stripe Card Front Die and a couple of cards I made with them...

For this card I used the negative die cut "hi", placing it over a background cut with the Double Stripe Card Front die.
I often stay away from background dies because I struggle to find the precision I think is required to be successful with them...BUT this die is foolproof! Truly impossible to mess up!

It can work for horizontal of vertical cards and it has little notches on two of the corners to make it so easy to line up.

I used the Double Stripe die with Grapefruit cardstock, then masked & ink blended a section with Honeysuckle ink so the "h" and "i" would be different colors. I love the bold & graphic feel of it but the texture from the Double Stripe Card Front Die really makes it!

A layered "there" die cut (from the Triple-Step Hi Bundle) and a little white splatter finished the design.

For this card I used just the base layer of the three-step stamp in the Triple-Step Hi stamp but like the name says there are three layers - the base letters, the flowers and the leaves. The layers line up perfectly and I know because I stamped half a dozen panels just for fun.
I ink blended a card front with Honeysuckle and Grapefruit inks then stamped the "hi" in black.

I die cut a white panel with the "hi" and adhered it over the top. Finishing with a stamped sentiment, a little faux black splatter and some white jewels.

Let me finish today's post by saying, thank you to Concord & 9th! I'm having so much fun with these sets!

And I LOVE big word dies! Seriously I am smitten with this "hi" and I'm going to be using it so much. Shaker card coming soon *wink*

Thanks so much for stopping by!
