Ink blended and die cut Concord & 9th HUGS

Hey guys! Welcome back!  It took what seems like forever to get this Hugs stamp and die set from Concord & 9th in my hot little hands and I cranked out 3 cards before I knew it.  It can take a little finagling to align it just right, but once you do, it's go time! I have all three in this blog post and the video on my YouTube channel walks you through how I did the pink and yellow version.  There really is no limit to what you can do with this die set and I plan on continuing to experiment ;)

Pink & Yellow
Hugs stamp and die set by Concord & 9th
Altenew Crisp Dye Inks in Mango Smoothie and Cotton Candy
Memento Tuxedo Black ink

Ranger Holographic embossing powder
Inkadinkado masking paper or large post-it note
Neenah 110 lb Solar White cardstock (cut 4"x11")

Deep Teal & Gold
Neenah cut to 5.5" x 11"
DCWV Foiled Vellum cardstock
Lawn Fawn inks in Merman and Deep Sea
Stick-It sheet adhesive

Same ink blending technique as used on the pink and yellow card.  Add Stick-It to the back of the vellum, cut to size and adhere to the front panels.

Black & White (Great masculine card)
13 Arts Pegasus cardstock (comes 12x12) cut to 5.5" x 12"
DCWV Glitter cardstock
Lawn Fawn Puffy Stars dies
Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder
Stamp sentiment in Versamark and heat emboss using the liquid platinum embossing powder.  Cut stars from red glitter paper and adhere to card front.  Add shimmer spritz if desired. Here's the link to Concord&9th's video for how to use 12x12 cardstock with the dies:
