A “Sweet” Set With Concord & 9th

Hello everyone! I am back with a set, 5 to be exact, of cards for you. This set uses Concord & 9th “Orange You Sweet” stamp set and coordinating dies. Now… this set is listed as “Last Chance” so hurry and get yours! It is at a fantastic price point for the set. Another thing I love about this set is the “sketchy” and imperfect look. This is great if you have a hard time lining anything up or don’t have a stamp platform.


I love the funny fruit puns in this set. It really was fun to create with. I am going to post individual pictures and talk about what products I used. If you have any specific questions, please post them in the comments below and I’d be happy to answer them. I made all the matching envelopes with my We R Memory Keepers envelope punch board. All cards are also A2 size.


My intention with all of these cards was to make them one layer. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen with this one due to a mistake. But I really like the black boarder on the side. For the watermelon rinds, I used used Lucky Clover and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide. For the center of the watermelons, I used Festive Berries and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide. I added the center seeds with black ink and to add a little texture, I used black and white Nuvo drops. The hearts were stamped in Festive Berries. The seeds and sentiment were also stamped in the same black ink. To the centers of the watermelons, I added the most adorable little hearts from Doodlebug.


I first stamped the “Sweet” sentiment using black ink so I would know where to place my oranges. The outside rind of the oranges was stamped in Carved Pumpkin and the insides were Wild Honey Distress Oxide. I also used a white pigment ink for the orange sections. I added the juice drops and orange sequins to fill in the white space. I added detail to the “Sweet” with a Gelly Roll pen and heat embossed the other part of the sentiment with white embossing powder.


I really love the simplicity of this card. At first I was going to keep them totally white but then decided to add a little ombre color. Starting at the top, I used Fossilized Amber and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide blending down. I used these same colors to stamp the lemon image and heat embossed them using clear powder. The same was done with the sentiment. I die cut the “section” piece in white and adhered using liquid glue. For a little extra love, I used the same tiny hearts in yellow from Doodlebug.


I first stamped the “Hello” sentiment in Twisted Citron and again heat embossed. I thought it needed a bit more definition so I used a black Gelly roll pen for some shadow. The smaller sentiment was stamped in Brushed Corduroy Distress Oxide. The kiwis were stamped using the same colors and the centers stamped with black ink. To fill in the white space, I added green sequins and black Nuvo drops.


This one is very similar to the lemon. I used Lucky Clover at the top and ink blended down using Twisted Citron. The “Hello” was die cut from some matching green light weight cardstock 5 times and adhered together with liquid glue. I heat embossed it using sparkle powder. The smaller sentiment was embossed in platinum powder. I die cut the lime out of 2 green cardstocks and white. I paper pieced the lighter green into the sections and added glossy accents for a nice fresh look.


I wrapped these cuties up with a bit of watermelon ribbon from my stash. Now, I have a great gift to give someone! I left the insides blank on these cards so a more personal message can be written.

I hope you enjoyed this set of cards. I know I am going to have so much fun making more of these!
