Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 4 + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the last day of the Altenew 4th Anniversary Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Scrapbook & Cards Today’s blog you are on the right track!

For today’s card, I created a watercoloured floral card with the Happy Bloom stamp set. I simply stamped a large bouquet from the Happy Bloom set on watercolour paper in black pigment ink first, and then stamped the word “Smile” on the banner in black as well.
Next, I watercoloured the stamped image, then fussy cut it out. I decorated the card base with Dotted washi tape & natural twine, then mounted the watercoloured bouquet using foam tape.

Altenew: Focus on YOU

Hello crafty friends, happy weekend!
Today I have a watercoloured flower card to share with you using brand new Altenew Focus on You stamp set.

Here is what I came up with:
To create the card, I lightly traced a circle on the centre of a watercolour paper panel using a circle die. I then stamped the sentiment from the Focus on You set on panel in VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink. Next, I stamped flowers & leaves (from the Focus on You set) on a separate watercolour paper using Altenew Sand Dunes dye ink, gently coloured them with watercolour medium, and then fussy cut them out – You can easily make when you use the matching die set. I mounted the sentiment panel on white card base using Altenew glue tape first, and then adhered the watercoloured flowers onto the card (as shown in the picture) using foam tape. I added some dark brown ink splatters around the sentiment area.

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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

Altenew March 2018 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the Altenew March 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Anna Komenda’s blog you are on the right track!
For my cards today, I am featuring so beautiful Sweet Rose Bouquet and Wildflower Garden stamp sets. Oh, I love these two flower sets so much!!
For my first card, I tried to make a simple yet vintage floral wedding card using the Sweet Rose Bouquet stamp set. I stamped layered roses & leaves on the centre of watercolour paper panel using several dye inks:
Rose petals: (light to dark) Frosty Pink, Coral Berry, Ruby Red, Midnight Violet
Leaves: Forest Glades, Evergreen
I then die cut the letter “W” from the stamped panel using the Caps Bold Alphabet die set.
I mounted the stamped panel on kraft card base using double-sided tape first, and then added the letter “W” in the exact place using foam tape. I lightly coloured the letter “W” using Antique Linen Distress ink, then added red ink splatters around the stamped rose bouquet.

Here is another floral card with the Sweet Rose Bouquet stamp set – It’s my most favourite set among the entire March release products. I stamped them on white paper panel using dye inks:
Rose petals: (light to dark) Ocean Waves, Dusk, Desert Night
(and) Turquoise, Tide Blue, Starlight
Leaves: Limestone, Silver Stone, Industrial Diamond
(and) Forest Glades
I then stamped the sentiment from the Wildflower Garden set on the left part of the stamped panel in pigment black ink, added water droplets using Glossy Accents.

My last card today, I created a (kind of) CAS card with the Wildflower Garden stamp set. I stamped the sentiment on the centre of watercolour paper panel first, and then stamped the flowers & leaves using several dye inks.

Altenew: Kraft Wedding Card

Hello crafty friends, happy Monday!
Today I have a wedding card to share with you using so gorgeous Altenew Leafy Garland die and the Caps Bold Alphabet die set. With these two die sets, we can easily make an elegant wedding card within 10 minutes!!
To create the card, I die cut the Leafy Garland from white card stock 4 times and then die cut the letter “A” from glitter gold card stock. The beautiful bride’s name is Amy so I used the letter “A”.
I adhered the white leafy garland die cuts on kraft card base using Altenew glue tape & foam tape. I then added the Altenew Fenstone Decorative Element and the letter “A”, as shown in the picture, using foam tape. To add a bit more colour, I decorated the card with hot pink enamel dots. Easy peasy, right?!

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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!
