Featured Friday guest - Concord & 9th

Hi my friends!  Hope you've had a great week, and are ready for week three of my time as Featured Friday Guest Designer for Concord & 9th!

This week, we've been asked to create using the Bold & Brushy, Upper and Lower alphas ... did you know I love words?  Such an easy assignment!

Songs are often a theme I use on my cards ... often causing 'ear worms' for those of you who follow along!  Hope you love this tune as much as I do...

 

 A few Brushed Blossom splatters were added, and Stickled using the incredible beautiful Brushed Blossom stamp set.
Adding the white die cut Blossom die kept my card really CAS,
but adds dimensional interest!

Thanks to The Beach Boys for one of my favorite tunes - this version is pretty awesome!
 
Can you handle another?
 
 
The Joy set of stamps provided the perfect lines for my bit of penmanship practice ...
Wildflower Stamp set helped me create a doodling look!


Why not stamp an inside sentiment, too?
Being Classy provides the beginning to mine.
See how that asterisk from the Lower Case set
draws the reader inside?
 
I have just one more week to play cards with Concord & 9th and my compadres in crime:  Lydia, and Zsoka - you'll be amazed at their creativity!

Two very beautiful cards, Michele...
But ‘yucky, yucky, yuck, yuck’ to ear worm analogy!
Worms are icky!

Great song, Michele ... beautifully illustrated with your gorgeous bloom and big sentiment (and the little one inside). LOVE the outline wildflowers ... and LOVE that vibrant blue ... what a stunner of a collage! Two more C9 beauties, my friend! Hugs, Anita :)

You are rocking it, Michele! Love the cards and that Beach Boys song is one of my favorites. Thanks for sharing your fantastic creativity with us yet again. Your work just makes me smile. Hope you have a lovely weekend. Hugs!

Two awesome designs, Michele! Love the bold lettering and pop of red on the first card. And it's always wonderful to see your inside sentiment. I think the second is my favorite though--another fabulous use of the lettering with a fun, carefree style!

No earworms for me...I love when you reference an old song! Two really beautiful cards, Michele! I love your bold color palette on the first one with the lovely scalloped border, and the white die cut is perfect! I also love the airy feel you created with your design on the 2nd card! Once again, you have totally knocked it outta the park, my friend!

I love the designs and the color scheme of both cards, Michele! The way you used the stamps from different sets is fantastic! Layering the white Blossom die-cut is so beautiful and adds interest. Always inspiring. Hideko xx

Those letters were made for a wordsmith like you, Michele. Both cards have accompanying images that compliment the sentiment well.

Cat Craig said...

Well I completely forgot to mention your lovely red and gold creation. So bold and pretty.
