Altenew New Day Card Kit Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, TGIF!
Welcome to the Altenew New Day Card Kit Blog Hop!! If you arrived here from Barbara Engler’s blog you are on the right track!

New Day Card Kit:
Thirty four cardstock die cuts
Six 8.5 x 11 inch cardstock (Made in UK)
Forty eight 6×6 inch pattern paper sheets (two of each design)
Two alphabet sticker sheets
12 wood veneer frames
6×8 inch photopolymer clear stamp set (Made in USA)
One gold glitter tape
Frame die, hearts and stars die
Enamel dots and hearts (4×6 inch sheet)

For my first card, it took me 10 minutes to make it! Isn’t that amazing? I didn’t stamp or heat emboss, just used the pattern paper, white rose die cuts, sentiment banner die cut, and enamel dots in the New Day Card Kit. Easy-peasy, right?!

For my second card, I used the Floral Garden stamp set in the card kit. I stamped flowers and butterflies from the Floral Garden set on white panel using several dye inks:
Flowers: Coral Berry & Ruby Red, Orange Cream & Autumn Blaze
Leaves: Bamboo, Parrot, Olive, Moss
Butterflies: Honey Drizzle (Yellow), Ocean Waves (Blue)
I then heat embossed the sentiment on black card stock in white, cut the small banner. Lastly, I mounted the stamped panel on white card base using glue tape first, and then added the sentiment banner using foam tape.

For my last card today, (I think some of you might already see this card on the Altenew blog before) I white heat embossed images from the Floral Garden set on watercolour paper panel and then ink blended on the panel with some Distress inks.

Altenew: Happiness is coming your way

Hello crafty friends!
I’m up on the Altenew blog with my watercolour flower card using the Build-A-Flower: Coral Charm Set.
I started by stamping flowers and leaves from the Altenew Build-A-Flower: Coral Charm set on an A2 sized watercolour paper panel in pigment black ink – I used Post-It Notes for masking flowers. I then watercoloured the stamped images with Peerless watercolors, the background with Pumice Stone Distress ink. I added black ink splatters here and there. Once the panel was dry, I stamped the sentiment in black, and then mounted the panel on white card base using glue tape.
I hope you’ll always find happiness in whatever you may do!! :D
Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

Flora & Fauna: Hello

Hello crafty friends, happy Monday!!
Today I want to share with you a watercoloured “Hello” card that I’ve made using the Flora & Fauna Wildflower Seeds and Snail Mail stamp sets.

Here is what I came up with:
I love watercolour! I love it, you know!! I stamped leaves (from the Wildflower Seeds and Snail Mail sets) on watercolour panel using some green & blue Distress inks: Mowed Lawn, Crushed Olive, Evergreen Bough, Peacock Feathers, Twisted Citron, and Mermaid Lagoon. I then freely brushed the stamped images with a wet paint brush – Distress inks react with water! (Oh, It was so fun and I just love it!!) I stamped butterflies & dragonfly from the Wildflower set on white card stock in pigment black ink, then fussy cut them. I stamped the sentiment “hello” from the Texture set on the bottom right corner of the watercoloured panel in pigment black ink. Lastly I mounted the main panel on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added butterflies and dragonfly around the sentiment area using foam tape. I also added Nuvo Glitter Drops.
I want to breathe fresh air in this leafy forest! :D
Thank you so much for stopping by. Happy crafting!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

Altenew: Sketchy Floral

Hello crafty friends!
I’m up on the Altenew blog with my floral cards using the newly released Sketchy Floral stamp set.

For my first card, I heat embossed the flower from the Altenew Sketchy Floral set on an A2 sized watercolour paper panel in white, then coloured them with Distress inks. Once the panel was dry, I stamped the sentiment and then mounted it on white card base using glue tape. I added water droplets using glossy accents.

For my second card, I created the subtle floral background. I stamped the outlined flower from the Altenew Sketchy Floral set on watercolour paper panel with distress inks, and then freely coloured them with the same colours. Once the panel was dry, I stamped the sentiments on the bottom right corner of the watercoloured panel using black pigment ink.

For my last card, I stamped the image on the patterned paper in the 6×6 Reflection Paper Pad in black pigment ink, and then coloured it with the Artist Markers Set A. For the sentiment, I die cut the word “hugs” from black card stock. I mounted the floral panel on white card base using glue tape first, and then added the sentiment die cut on it using foam tape.
Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

Altenew July 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, happy Thursday!
Welcome to the Altenew July 2017 Release Blog Hop!! We have 18 brand new stamp sets, dies, and 12 gorgeous new ink colours in July! If you arrived here from Chari Moss’s blog you are on the right track!
For my first card, I used the new Baby Balloon stamp set. I stamped the outlined image on watercolour panel using Sand Dunes dye ink, and then coloured it with Distress markers and water brush. I then traced the lines using Copic Multiliner Black.
I really want to experience the exhilaration of a sunrise hot air balloon flight. It must be so peaceful yet exhilarating!!

For my second & third cards, I used the new Layered Blossom Cover A & B dies.
I die cut the Layered Blossom Cover A from white card stock, mounted the die cut panel over sticky paper panel, and then applied fine glitter powders. For the sentiment, I die cut the word “hugs” from metal gold card stock using the new Script Words dies five times, and then glued them together using fine tip glue pen.
I die cut the Layered Blossom Cover A from the Apple Red card stock, Layered Blossom Cover B from the Orange Cream card stock, and then mounted them on the Spicy Yogurt card base using foam tape. For the sentiment, I heat embossed it from the new Sketchy Floral set on black card stock in white, cut the small banner. So simple and easy!!

My fourth & fifth cards, I used the new Pretty Pansies stamp set along with Halftone Circles stamp set.
I randomly stamped layered pansies & halftone circles from white paper panel with several dye inks:
Purple pansies: (from light to dark colours) Soft Lilac, Lavender Fields, Deep Iris
Pink pansies: Pink Diamond, Pinkalicious, Rubellite (new colours)
Yellow pansies: Citrus Burst, Maple Yellow, Honey Drizzle (new colours)
Leaves: Frayed Leaf, Bamboo, Forest Glades
I then mounted the stamped panel on yellow card base using foam tape. For the sentiment, I heat embossed the word “Thanks!” from the Halftone Circles set on red card stock in white.
