I have loved making cards ever since I was a young girl. Little did I know, when I was making cards with paper, paint, crayons and even mum's lace and sequin supplies that I would keep enjoying this hobby later in life. The cardmaking/paper crafting women and men all over the world are absolutely inspirational and have created this great community which I'm lucky to be a part of.

Birthday Card For Altenew Inspiration Challenge

Hello again…I’m sharing another card today that I made for the Altenew March 2020 Inspiration Challenge…I had started with 2 cards design ideas (the first one was shared on my previous post) and wasn’t sure the second one would work….but I went ahead anyways and here is the result…

I splattered a bit of black ink on the front panel and adhered it to my card…I then stamped the large succulent image from Inked Flora stamp set on a piece of watercolor cardstock and heat embossed them using platinum embossing powder…

I coloured in the flowers using the tiniest bit of Altenew watercolor brush markers and lots of water..I used Sweet Leaf, Midnight Violet and Sea Breeze markers…once dry, I die cut these flowers and adhered them to the card front…

I stamped the sentiment from the mini stamp set called Strawberry on a Dot Label which I heat embossed using the same platinum embossing powder I used for the flowers..

Thanks so much for stopping by…hope you liked my card…Have a happy and sunshiny day ahead..!!

Thank You Card For Altenew March Inspiration Challenge

This months inspiration challenge at the Altenew Blog was actually a big challenge for me….I tend to automatically reach for bright colours and combos so had to think hard to come up with a card design using the pastel shades from the inspiration picture..

I first created the background panel using the Altenew cube builder stencil and Wisteria and Iceberg crisp dye inks…on a separate piece of cardstock, I stamped the leaves and flower clusters using Firefly crisp ink…the stamps are from Focus On You and A Study In Watercolor stamp sets…

I stamped the sentiment on a couple of white strips ad adhered them to my card..I also added a few clear sequins to embellish my card..

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today…Have a happy and wonderful day ahead..!!

Birthday And Thanks Cards Using Altenew Watercolor Halftone Set

I don’t think I have ever tried any of the halftone stamps from Altenew before but I certainly enjoyed the watercolor halftone stamp set…all you do is ink it up and stamp as usual…but the results are quite amazing…

On my first card, I first used the Altenew Grid Stencil and light grey ink to print a light pattern on the front panel…I then splattered some jet black ink spray and adhered it to the card front…

I stamped the large flower cluster image using a couple of shades of coral and light pink crisp inks and then dabbed a bit of crimson on the edges for effect…the sentiment has been white heat embossed on black labels and I have added some black rhinestones to embellish my card…

My second card was much faster to create…I randomly stamped the single flower and leaf image repeatedly on the front panel and then added two die cut black fine frames…I adhered two green stamped and die cut images in one corner and a blue one on top…I placed the sentiment there as well and added a few white rhinestones to embellish it…

I’m super glad you stopped by my to take a look at my cards…thank you…hope you will have a happy and creative day today…

Cute Bunny Easter Cards

I got a good start on Easter cards this year and made quite a few of them…today I’m sharing the ones in which I have used the Bunny Friends stamp and die set from Pretty Pink Posh

For my first card I have die cut a stitched oval from the front panel and embossed it with a 3D embossing folder…I added a dotted printed paper in the die cut section and placed the coloured in and die cut bunny there…I also added a die cut scalloped frame(lawn cuts die) and added the sentiment on a pink banner…

For my second card, I used distress inks and a rectangle stencil to create the background for the bunnies…..I added a die cut frame from printed cardstock and stamped the sentiment directly on the front panel..

My third card was a quick one…I used a square stencil on a blue front panel and created the background for the bunny with distress inks…I added a scalloped die cut frame(kat scrappiness die)from purple glitter cardstock and then added the sentiment banner…

Thank you so much for stopping by to take a look at my cards today…I will be sharing a few more Easter cards soon…Happy crafting..!!

I have chosen to create a simple card for this challenge starting with a plain white front panel embossed with dots and swirls cover die for a subtle background and then stamped and die cut the flowers from Charming Doodles stamp set…the coloured layers have been stamped using crisp dye inks – hunter green, maple yellow and sand dunes.

The sentiment is from Mod Vases stamp set and has been stamped on a yellow cardstock piece with Obsidian black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
