Flora & Fauna: Textures

Hello crafty friends!
Today I’m popping in to share with you my abstract patterned card using Flora & Fauna Texture and Texture Four stamp sets.

Here is what I came up with:
Honestly, this is my first abstract patterned card. It wasn’t easy to make concept but was so fun! I would make more with the texture sets later. I stamped the sentiment (from the You Me and Tea set) on the bottom right corner of white paper panel in black pigment ink first. I then stamped brush strokes (from the Texture & Texture Four sets) using some Altenew dye inks, dots, lines, berries using black pigment ink as shown to the image.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

Flora & Fauna: Sending good vibes

Hello crafty friends, happy Monday!
I want to share with you my fun watercolour card today with some Flora & Fauna stamp sets: Love Bug, Winter Aviary, You Me and Tea sets.

I started by stamping “driving friends” from brand new Love Bug set on watercolour paper, watercoloured it with Hero Arts Watercolor Wheel, and then fussy cut it out. For making floral background, I stamped cute flowers & leaves from two Winter Aviary & You Me and Tea sets on the top & bottom of watercolour paper panel using VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink, loosely watercoloured them with Hero Arts Watercolor Wheel as well. I added more watercolours using Festive Berries Distress ink.
Once the floral panel was completely dry, I mounted it on top-folded white card base using double-sided tape, and then added the “driving friends” cut on the centre of the card front using foam tape. I added the sentiment banner as if the personalised number plate. :D
Sending you good vibes!

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Carnation + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends!
This month’s build-a-flower set features a beautiful carnation. The meaning of carnation includes fascination, distinction, and love, and its use in art and decor dates back to ancient Greek and Roman times. With their ruffled appearance and classic beauty, these flowers possess a charm and allure that continues to captivate people around the globe. Alongside the multi-step carnation, we have included two-step leaves, berries, and a cluster of tiny flowers that can be used as filler images for your flower arrangements! The set also includes three kindness sentiments that are great for any occasion.
Altenew Build-A-Flower: Carnation

Here is what I came up with:
When I saw the beautiful Carnation set, I wanted to make very feminine card. :D I stamped layered carnations & leaves using some dye inks, and then die cut them with the matching dies:
Red carnation: (light to dark) Frosty Pink, Cotton Candy, Coral Berry, Ruby Red
Pink carnation: Frosty Pink, Peach Perfect, Cotton Candy, Coral Berry
Leaves: Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades
Before mounting the cluster of carnations, I decorated the Spicy Yogurt card base with lace.

Altenew December Release Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends, TGIF!
Welcome to the Altenew December Release Blog Hop!! If you arrived here from Altenew Scrapbook blog you are on the right track!

In December, we have 14 brand new stamp sets & matching die sets, 2 stand-alone die sets and..ta-da! new Mini Blossom Die Cutting Machine!! Our Mini Blossom Die Cutting Machine is the compact and portable must-have tool for your craft room! It is designed to work with Altenew dies (sold separately) and other wafer-thin metal dies. It can be used to quickly and easily die cut a variety of materials, including cardstock and Altenew specialty papers, and will help you add texture and dimension to your projects. The elegant and clean design will look wonderful on your craft desk, secured on its stable base with suction feet.

For my first card, I used the Happy Together stamp set and “Thank you” word die in the Flower Arrangement die set. I started by stamping flowers from the Happy Together set randomly onto watercolour paper panel in pigment black ink, and then watercoloured the panel with several Distress inks.
I die cut “Thank you” sentiment from white card stock using the Flower Arrangement die set. It’s a beautiful and trendy script font!

For my second card, I used the Peony Spray stamp set – I love this set in particular!

Flower card again!! :D For my last card, I used the Flower Arrangement stamp set. I randomly stamped layered flowers & leaves with lots of dye inks:

Yellow flowers: Mango Smoothie, Honey Drizzle, Orange Cream
