Concord and 9th Birthday Bash

Hello there! Today's post is very special because Concord and 9th is turning one this month and we are here to celebrate! Greg and Angie have organized an amazing month-long party with a blog hop, giveaways, discounts and much more! There will be special guests every day in August and each one of them will be giving away a 20$ gift card to Condord and 9th! So don't forget to visit their blog daily! In order to qualify for today's gift card follow the instructions at the end of this post!

¡Hola! La entrada de hoy es muy especial porque "Concord and 9th" cumple un año este mes ¡y estamos aquí para celebrarlo! Greg y Angie han organizado una fiesta increíble con un "blog hop" que dura todo el mes, regalos, descuentos ¡y mucho más! ¡Habrá diseñadores invitados cada día y cada uno de ellos regalará una tarjeta de 20$ para la tienda de Concord and 9th! ¡Así que no os olvidéis de visitar su blog diariamente! Para participar en el sorteo de hoy solo tenéis que seguir las instrucciones que he dejado al final de esta entrada. 

And to join the birthday bash I have created these cards using two of my favourite Concord and 9th products: "Layers of Love Die" and "Love you. Mean it"

Y para unirme a la celebración, he creado estas tarjetas usando dos de mis productos favoritos de Concord and 9th: "Layers of Love Die" y "Love you. Mean it"




Making these cards was surprisingly fast. The most time-consuming part was the white embossed background, but once that was done I had everyghing ready in less than twenty minutes. You can watch how I did it in the video below or at my Youtube channel.

Hacer estas dos tarjetas ha sido increíblemente rápido. Lo que más tiempo me ha llevado es el fondo embosado, pero una vez hecho eso solo he necesitado veinte minutos para acabarlas. Podéis ver cómo lo he hecho en el vídeo que dejo aquí abajo o en mi canal de Youtube.




I'm a big fan of Concord and 9th and that's not only for their amazing products but also the great people behind it. So Happy Birthday Concord and 9th! Here is to many more!

Soy muy fan de "Concord and 9th" y no es solo porque me encanten sus productos sino también porque sus dueños son personas maravillosas. Así que ¡feliz cumpleaños Concord and 9th! ¡Que cumplas muchísimos más!

I am not surprised in the least, your work is amazing.

  99. Oh how I love how you made such a beautiful, soft background with the brushes! Absolutely stunning. It makes me think of babies with the gentle pastels. Do you find it easier to put down a streak free area with the brushes vs the usual distress sponge applicators? How do you decide which tool to use? Congrats on your subscription milestone! That's so exciting! And a very happy birthday to my favorite company.....Concord & 9th. Ive been eyeing the upper and lowercase sophisticated script stamps for weeks! Fingers are crossed!

    1. Hi Gina! I do find it a bit easier with the brushes, I decide which tool to use depending on the intensity of color I want to achieve. When I want soft backgrounds (like in this case) I definitely go with the brushes! :)
