Feature Friday | Holidays with Concord & 9th | Stocking Stuffers & Holly Berry


Today is my final Feature Friday post for Concord & 9th.  I've been thrilled to share so many projects with you, featuring the products from the September Holiday release!  Today's projects feature items from the Stocking Stuffers Bundle, and the Holly Berry Bundle.   (All products used, will be listed at the bottom of this post.)

This card was created using stamps and dies from the Concord & 9th Stocking Stuffer bundle.  Find the full details, including supply list, on the blog.

To begin the first card, I cut a card front from Oatmeal Cookie card stock.  Using Oatmeal Cookie ink, I stamped the pine cone and holly images from the Stocking Stuffers Stamp Set randomly across the background.  I die cut the stocking, and tag, from the Stocking Stuffers Die Set, out of Cranberry Bliss, and Whip Cream card stock.  I also cut out the holly berries (Buttercream, and Green Olive card stock), and the little bow (gold foil paper from the Neutrals Foil Pack).  I stamped the sentiment onto the little tag in Black Amalgam ink, then inked the edges of the tag, and white portions of the stocking with Tin Pail ink.  The red portion of the stocking, and the card front, was inked in Oatmeal Cookie ink.  Then I adhered everything together with liquid glue and foam squares, and attached the card front to a white card base.

This gift bag was created using stamps and dies from the Concord & 9th Stocking Stuffers bundle.  Find the full details, including a template for the bag, and a supply list, on the blog.

Today's second project is an adorable little gift bag - perfect for some fun treats, or a small gift.  I began by stamping the poinsettia image from the Stocking Stuffers Stamp Set, in Hazelnut Blend ink, randomly across the two panels that form the gift bag (see template).  The panels were cut from Oatmeal Cookie card stock. Once that was completed, I quickly colored in the images using Color Burst pencils.

Colored Pencils Used:

I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment on the bottom edge of a 4.25" x 1.75" strip of vellum, and then I die cut the branches from the Stocking Stuffers Die Set, out of Green Olive and Fresh Forest card stock.  I die cut the bow from Cranberry Bliss card stock.  I adhered the back together with White Liner tape (being sure to burnish the area where the tape adhered the seams, to make sure it was bonded).  I scored the vellum at 1/4" and attached that just inside the bag with White Liner, and attached the branches with liquid adhesive.  A few pearl "berries" finished the bag.  I used my tiny stapler to close the top of the back, however, you could also use washi tape or punch a couple of holes in the top to tie ribbon through..  To save the template, click on the image, then right click to save the full sized image.

The third project, I'm sharing today, was this super sweet and simple, nearly monochromatic card.  I began by using the Turnabout Jig to line up a Tin Pail card stock card front, and then stamped the Holly Berry Turnabout foliage stamp in Tin Pail ink.  I used the same ink for all four turns, to fill the background.  I allowed that to dry completely, before quickly stamping the berry Turnabout stamp in VersaMark ink.  I heat embossed the berries with white embossing powder.  Then, using the Holly Berry Dies, I die cut a Tin Pail background, plus die cut the sentiment panel twice - once in Silver Foil paper from the Neutrals Foil Pack, and once from the Red Foil paper in the Holiday Foil Paper Pack (both pieces had the backs covered in Stick It Adhesive Sheets, prior to die cutting). I adhered the Silver foil die cut on top of the red foil die cut - slightly off center - to create a shadow effect.  Then I attached the Tin Pail background.  I popped the sentiment panel up on foam squares, and attached the completed card front to a white card base.

This explosion box, and the ornament inside, were created using stamps and dies from the Concord & 9th Holly Berry bundle.  Find the full details, including supply list, on the blog.

Today's final project is a little harder to explain step by step.  I created an explosion box, with a paper ornament inside.  I got really friendly with my Turnabout Jig and Holly Berry Turnabout Stamps for this project, along with the Woven Stripes Background Stamp.   The box itself is just over 4" x 4", and was created with Oatmeal Cookie card stock.  I stamped the Holly Berry Turnabout in Lemongrass, and Cranberry Bliss inks, and then matted the panels onto Lemongrass card stock.  The top of the box has a bow made of Lemongrass satin ribbon, and Lemongrass leaves cut from the Holly Berry Dies.  I added some Gold Fashion berries to the leaves. A sentiment panel, die cut from Buttercream card stock and the Gold Foil paper from the Neutrals Foil Pack, finished the outside of the box.

Inside the box, panels made with the Woven Stripes Background Stamp, and Lemongrass ink, are matted on Lemongrass card stock.  The sentiment panel was stamped with Black Amalgam ink, and Cranberry Bliss ink, and a coordinating panel was attached to the opposite side for a personalized message.  The platform in the center was made with Lemongrass card stock, and is stamped with the leaves stamps in Lemongrass, and Green Olive inks.  The platform is matted with some of the gold foil paper, and more Fashion Gold pieces were added as berries around the circle die cut that holds the ornament.

This explosion box, and the ornament inside, were created using stamps and dies from the Concord & 9th Holly Berry bundle.  Find the full details, including supply list, on the blog.

The ornament was created with 16 circles of the Holly Berry stamping on Whip Cream card stock, and 16 circles of the Woven Stripe stamping - on Lemongrass card stock.  They were adhered back to back to create 16 circle panels, and then were adhered together at the top and bottom on the Woven Stripes circles, and in the center for the Holly Berry circles.  Gold Foil squares were attached between each two panels to create the "topper".  The Die Release Tool was used to punch holes in the topper, and I used the Red thread from the Sew Essentials Kit, to create the hanger.  Die cut Holly leaves from Gold Foil, along with a few Mini Jingles finished the ornament.  
I've had so much fun sharing my creations with you this month!  I hope you've found some inspiration, along with a few fun new stamp sets from Concord & 9th, that you just have to get your hands on!
