Concord & 9th Masterclass - Layering stamps

Hi everyone!  We are in the middle of the Concord & 9th Masterclass over at StampNation.  Concord & 9th is teaching us all about Unexpected Layering.  So far we have learned about layering with dies and stamps.

The video's have been amazing so far and I can't wait to learn more.  

For my cards today, I decided to do some creative layering with stamps.  I took Concord & 9th's Barnwood Background stamp to stamp my card panel.  I then stamped the outline flower from You are Enough and filled in with the solid stamps to add color.  I love the effect using a light shade and a darker shade to create a realistic looking flower.

I took the Hope label die to cut from the panel and stamped a coordinating sentiment from the Hope stamp set.  I added my panel to a piece of black card stock to help the sentiment stand out.  I attached this to a white card base and added some black and white twine and some sequins to finish off my card.  

While I had my supplies out I made another card using different colors.

It's not too late to join StampNation - the Masterclasses are free with your membership.  Click here to learn more!

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!


  1. Beautiful card Kristie! Love the background and how the black pops through the die - perfect!

  2. I adore their woodgrain stamp, Kristie - you've added the perfect bloom, and colors, to make it even more beautiful!

  3. These are just wonderful - that background stamp is cool. And you've paired it with just the right stamps!

  4. makes me wonder if I should join....but I have NO time at all. Your cards are GORGEOUS!!!! Especially the first one - like the transparency of that yellow flower and the striped sentiment! - Are you going to Edison on August 12th?
