Concord & 9th April Guest Designer Take 2

Hello there!  I'm back for my second post as a guest designer for Concord & 9th.  This time I'm using the wonderful new stamp set Crazy Awesome.  I have 2 very different cards to show you today!

My first card uses the large circular stamp image, which I stamped on black card stock and embossed with white embossing powder.  I chose the word "creative" to stamp on the banner, and I also embossed the little scissors in gold.  I certainly know plenty of "crazy creative" people I could send this card to :)  Next I fussy cut the image, including cutting the inner parts out.  I wanted as much of my background as possible to show through.  To make the background I used several different ink sprays in one of my favorite color combos, red/pink, orange and yellow.  I die cut the bottom of the panel using Concord & 9th's Bag's & Tags Dies.  I still have the 2 long dies (pinking edge and scallop edge) attached, so I decided to add the scallop edge piece to my card below the pinked edge, leaving a tiny bit of space between them.  To finish my card I added the word "you're" (also from Crazy Awesome), along with some gold and clear sequins. 

I wanted to use the large words from the stamp set to create a background and this is what I came up with.  I stamped the words "adorable" "kind" "creative" and "awesome" at an angle using Wplus9 inks.  These word were very easy to stamp and line up straight!  I cut the bottom of the card at an angle and added a black scallop edge.  I stamped the sentiment "you're just my type" on a black circle which I cut using the circle die from Bags & Tags, and embossed in white.  I finished my card with a few pink enamel dots and some black twine.

As you can see, Crazy Awesome is crazy versatile!

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I'll be back next week for my last quest spot with Concord & 9th, hope you'll join me then :)
