Concord & 9th – Birthday Stacks

Hello!

I’m back for week 2 of the Concord & 9th Release feature!

C&9 Banner

This week, we’re featuring the Birthday Stacks Bundle – including a fun stamp set and coordinating dies.

Birthday Stacks Products

I made 4 cards using each of the 4 main stamps in this stamp set.  The dies were designed to create interactive, pop-up cards or can be used as edge dies on cards or tags.

Blog Birthday Gifts Acetate Card

My first card features a row of presents.  I colored the images using various Copic markers and embossed the sentiment using a stamp from the Everyday Greetings set featured in the previous post.  The die that coordinates with this stamp set makes this acetate card easy to create – you can easily quadruple the panels to glue on the acetate to hide all the adhesive.

Here’s an acetate card hack:  Get clear cover sheets!  They’re made for binding books, but they’re perfectly clear and come in high-quality full-sized sheets an can be cut down perfectly for cards.  YOU’RE WELCOME! 😉 (it’s linked in the supplies section below).

Copic colors used:  Y02, YR15, Y15, R89, R39, R08, BG11, BG32, BG34

Blog Celebrate Banner

The next card features the banner image from the stamp set.  Instead of using the coordinating banner die, I used the Celebrate die to give the card some off-the-edge interest.  I stamped Versamark ink over the die-cut word and embossed it using gold embossing powder twice.  I left this card pretty clean and simple, but added two balloons towards the bottom right to finish off the card.

Here’s a close-up of the embossed word that I used in the previous card and in my next project:

For the third card, I used the same die as above, but stamped the row of balloons on the card instead.  The card is side-folding card so I cut the base behind the die cut so they it’s free-floating.  I embossed the die-cut the same way I did the previous card.  I stuck with the same color scheme also to keep the card theme cohesive.

Blog Birthday Candles

Last but not least, I used the row of birthday candles for my last card.  This card was the cleanest and simplest card I made – but I don’t think it needed anymore!   I colored the images using Copic markers and stamped the sentiment in black just below the row of candles and called it done.

Copic colors used:  V01, V12, V15, B000, B21, BG11, BG32, BG34
