Today we are excited to featured a new guest designer for Concord & 9th. We discovered Lindsey Larsen on Instagram @occasionalcrafting and fell in love with her crafty style. We just had to ask her to play with our new July products! Today is post #1.
Here is a little more about Lindsey:
Hi! My name is Lindsey, and I am ecstatic (and humbled!) to be guesting for Concord & 9th this month. I'm a wife, mother to two super cute kiddos, and a crafter in my spare time...usually at night when I should be sleeping! ;) I've been creative in one way or another my whole life, but the last few years I've fallen in love with card making. I love that it allows me to express gratitude, send a smile or word of comfort, and share a little piece of my heart with others. I always try to create with the recipient in mind and to pack as much love as possible into each card I make. I delight in simplicity, so naturally I am happiest when I create in a clean and simple style.
You are going to LOVE these cards! We sure do! In this first card Lindsey is using our new JOY Bundle, our Stripe Builder stamp set and Take A Bough dies. We love how she colored the stripes red behind the JOY to make it pop, and the rest green for a fun traditional holiday card. The metallic sprigs give it just the right touch!
Darling! Right? Check out this next one! We love that Lindsey created a shaker card out of the JOY die that is filled with sequins, and even the heart from our Bags & Tags dies. The little tag that says "You Bring Me" comes from our Bags & Tags dies set too. Lindsey also used the Stripe Builder again to create a fun buffalo plaid, or large gingham background.
This card could be given year round, or during the holidays! We love it when cards and products can be versatile! Lindsey did such a good job! Be sure to follow her on Instagram @occasionalcrafting, and hop over to her blog, Occasional Crafting, for additional details on these fun cards!
