Welcome to something brand new! I am so excited to share with you a new monthly blog hop. We all know that crafty friends are some of the best friends so what better than a Crafty Friends Blog Hop?! Who are these stampers? A group who had similar beginnings in stamping and had the good fortune of becoming friends.
We will feature a different company on the 20th of each month. To start it off this month, I could not be more thrilled to say that our featured company is Concord & 9th. I’ve been a fan of theirs since the beginning and I love that they are celebrating with us this month.
I wanted to create a card for a recently engaged couple in my family and thought this was the perfect time. I started with the wreath and elements from the Furry Friends Stamp Set. Armed with some amazing WOW! embossing powders, I inked up the stamps with Versamark Ink and then embossed in Rose Glintz, Oyster Glintz and Platinum to create this gorgeous color palette.
Let’s fact it, no embossing ever shows its best in a photo but I tried to capture the shine on an angle so you could see more. Using the Rose Glintz again, I chose a sentiment from the Give Thanks Stamp Set for the center of the wreath. I found this older printed paper from Simon Says Stamp in my stash and found it went perfectly with the Rose.
So now on to more fun! As part of the celebration, Concord and 9th has shared a limited time discount for shopping with the Crafty Friends. YES!!! Click on the graphic above and use the code CRAFTYFRIENDS20
