Concord & 9th-Happy Day

Hi there! Today I’m excited to join Concord & 9th for their month-long blog hop celebration in honor of their first birthday.C9_Birthday_Bash_RECTANGLE_largeMy project features a few products from their latest release. I embossed the gorgeous  Barnwood Background in clear & blended in Peacock Feathers.
Concord & 9th-Happy DayThe cake is from Happy Day. I stamped it in Versafine Onyx Black onto watercolor cardstock and colored it with Zig Clean Color Markers. I also flicked some black & white paint using my Gansai Tambi watercolors.

  1. This is gorgeous! That cake stamp is so pretty, and you colored it to perfection! The woodgrain background is just perfect for it!

  2. Beautiful card Laura. I just got some ‘Ziggy Ziggys” so I would love to have seen how you colored this…however I know how busy you are this time of year with the kids in school

  3. I love this cake stamp. So pretty with the flowers. That Barnwood Background stamp is very cool, too. Lovely card. Thanks so much.

  4. The coloring is fantastic. I have got to get more copics and practice more! Thanks for sharing and stay blessed!

  5. Laura, your creativity is always amazing, but this card…oh my! Breath-taken away by the stunning cake set atop the teal background! You’ve created magic with these C9 products. In awe…

  6. I’m so taken with this card, beautiful – and the barnyard background stamp – so versatile. Going on my ‘to get’ list.

  7. Laura I love this background from Concord and 9th. I am always buying paper that has the “wood look” background. With this stamp I can make the background on my own and have it the exact color that I want. This is probably the best stamp ever!!!! At least to me!!! Thank you for a great tutorial and thanks to Concord and 9th for giving you the opportunity to allow us to win a great gift certificate
