STAMPtember Collaboration - Memory Box AND Concord and 9th

Hello - and HAPPY STAMPtember - a month long party by Simon Says Stamp to celebrate all things stamping. 

Today we are getting to see the next in the progression of the special SUPER SECRET collaboration stamp sets that will be happening throughout the month! Today we have not one but TWO companies - and I have a card for both of them! First up - Memory Box:

I loved this stamp set- made me think of a path through the woods!

I stamped and heat embossed it in gold, then ink blended over the top with distress oxides - including the new Crackling Campfire (which I LOVE by the way!). The other two colors were Fossilized Amber and Aged Mahogany. I also smooshed some of the same colors on a clear stamp block, added a touch of water, and then used that mixture to "paint" in some of the trees in the same color order. I loved the effect of depth this gave!

I added some gold splatters, then heat embossed a sentiment on a strip of black cardstock, hand trimmed into a banner shape. Wrapped some twine around it, mounted it with foam adhesive, then finished off with a few gold sequins.

Here is a closer look at this super fun set:

And next up - we have Concord and 9th:

For this card, I went very clean and simple - and paired the stamp set up with some of Concord and 9th's gorgeous cardstock in Buttercup and Evergreen as well!

I decided to use the image a bit different than it looked at first glance - it has a great spot in the center to add the sentiments, but I stamped both sides of it off the edge of my Buttercup cardstock, and heat embossed in white for a crisp finish. I added my sentiment with black Versafine ink, and heat embossed that with clear embossing powder for the same shine.

I added a thin scallop border on both sides of that panel using Scallop Stitches die and white cardstock, then mounted that entire panel with foam adhesive on my Evergreen card base. Finished off with a few sparkling clear sequins!

Here is a closer look at this beautiful set:
