Thanks For Being My Friend

Oh I love these birds by Altenew..they are from Birds of a feather stamp set…I really feel that a colour layering stamp set adds so many possibilities and so much ease for the card maker/crafter….and since it’s a thank you card for a friend,I used two of the three birds from this set that faced each other…

I created the background panel first with some Distress Oxide inks and Altenew cube builder stencil…I have used the following shades of ink – hickory smoke, frayed burlap and peeled paint and I didn’t use the stencil to build the cube background but just the simple diamond grid…I splattered some water for effect and also used a stitched rectangle edge die to emboss a border on this panel before adhering it to a plain white card base…

On a separate piece of white cardstock,I used various Altenew inks to stamp the birds…for the first bird I used minty mint, pinkalicious, galactic stream and  rocky shore and for the second one I have used deep iris, maple yellow, orange cream and rocky shore….I then die cut these with the coordinating dies and die cut the branches from white cardstock and placed them on my card front…
I stamped the sentiment using black ink and added a few gold sequins to embellish my card…

Birthday Card For Altenew March Inspiration Challenge

Today I’m sharing my second card that I have created for the Altenew March 2018 Inspiration Challenge…I was able to incorporate all the colours from the inspiration image – blue, coral and brown on my card and I think the Altenew Birds of a feather layering stamp set is amazing…there are three birds in the set and I chose this one for my card…

This is the inspiration image for the challenge by Virginia Lu…

I started by creating the front panel of my card…I have used the stone wall stencil and applied the texture paste all over the panel…I did not bother to fill in the left out spaces as I liked how they looked…once dry,I lightly sponged some coral bliss dye ink on all edges of the panel and adhered it to my card base…

I stamped the bird on a piece of white cardstock using tide blue,peach perfect,orange cream and coral bliss crisp dye inks and the die cut it using the coordinating die…I die cut the tree branch from a light brown cardstock and adhered it to the card front and then used some adhesive foam squares to adhere the bird..
I stamped the sentiment on two white strips of cardstock using tide blue ink and added them to my card…and finally to embellish my card I have used clear confetti sequins…
