Confetti Cake Bundle | Happy Fourth Birthday Concord & 9th!

August 9, 2019 - 2 Comments

Concord & 9th is turning 4 and I am so excited and honored to have been asked to guest design this month for their August Release! We’re kicking off this special release with TWO earned rewards! (Affiliated links used where applicable.)

You can earn the Cake Layer Dies with $60+ purchase or earn both this fun die set AND the Confetti Turnabout 4×4 stamp set with a $120+ purchase! I cannot tell you how fun this turnabout stamp set is! I have been itching to try the turnabout stamps and I am now hooked!

Since the beginning of this year, each turnabout stamp now comes with an alignment aid that makes it super easy to line the stamp up perfectly. No more measuring needed! You will also need a Turnabout Jig and a MISTI or some other equivalent stamping platform to get the job done in a cinch.

For my first card, I used some gorgeous pinks and blues for my background and stamped my turnabout image four separate times to get the desired effect. I used Altenew Pink Diamond, Sea Glass, Pinkalicious, and Ocean Waves Crisp Dye Inks in that order. For my cake, I diecut two layers from smooth white card stock and then used Copics to color it.

Copic Colors Used:

  • Yellow Cake: Y21, Y23, E30, E33
  • Chocolate Cake and Frosting: E71, E74, E77, E79
  • White Icing: 0, W0, W1, W3
  • Pink: RV000, RV00, RV52, RV55, RV66
  • Blue: B00, B02, B04, B06
  • Candle Flame: Y02, YR04, R14

I also created a fun shaker card using these two sets. For my background, I blended some Shaded Lilac, Dusty Concord, and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Inks onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I then splattered this piece lightly with water using a #4 brush and then blotted it dry with a clean paper towel.

Once dry, I then splattered this panel with both some diluted Opaque White Paint and some purple water color paint. I diecut a circle window into this panel and placed a piece of clear acetate behind it. I then mounted this on top of my confetti panel using some 3D Foam Adhesive Tape.

To get the perfect placement, I dumped my embellishments (a mix of sequins from Studio Katia and Pretty Pink Posh) onto the center of my confetti background and just placed my front panel on top of it so that I could see what I was doing when trying to align both pieces. For my cake, I once again diecut three layers and then used some purple Copics (V000, V01, V04, V06, and V09) to color it.

Also, if you’re a fan of enamel pins and/or keychains, Concord & 9th is now offering both! Designed in the style of one of their most popular stamps, the Hello Lovely Enamel Keychain and Hello Lovely Enamel Pin are sure to be a crowd pleaser! They can also be purchased as a bundle deal HERE!

Thanks so much for dropping by! Make sure to stop by the Concord & 9th Blog for more August Release inspiration! If you liked these cards and want some more crafty inspiration, please feel free to check out my INSTAGRAM feed!

Wishing you all a lovely day and happy card making!

    Hello Rachel, such a veritable display of cheerful birthday cards! At first glance all three cards emote an exploding piรฑata! Those rounded top corners add that extra hint of subliminal attention that you so skillfully execute. I love all three cards! Thanks ever so much for sharing. Cheers and blessings from the Land Down Under.
