Be Happy – Altenew March Inspiration Challenge

This month’s Altenew Challenge is by Virginia LuI really love her cardmaking style and my entry for the challenge is also inspired by her as she has created some cards with heat embossed flowers on vellum which look so very very beautiful….and that’s exactly what I did for my card..heat embossed some flowers…

This is the image and colours for the challenge…

I cut watercolor cardstock to size for my front panel and used a piece of acetate, Altenew crisp dye inks and water spray bottle to create the background by simply smooshing the ink on paper…I have used aqualicious,coral bliss and sunkissed shades here…once dry,I used a postage stamp edge rectangle die to emboss the edges of my panel and then adhered it to a plain white card base…

On a piece on vellum paper,I stamped a few Cosmos flowers using Versamark ink and then heat embossed it using gold embossing powder…I didn’t have the matching dies by then,so I simply cut them out…I carefully adhered these flowers to my front panel by using a liquid glue just behind the embossed areas so it wouldn’t show…
Next,I die cut the word ‘BE’ three times from thick cardstock using bold caps die and layered them together…I sponged some coral bliss ink on it before adhering it the the card front..I gold heat embossed¬† the rest of the sentiment on a small white strip and sponged aqualicious ink on it to stick to the colours in the challenge..and finally I added some gold Nuvo drops to embellish my card…

YAY – You Rock!

It’s the first month of autumn here in Australia…and I wanted to make a card with autumnal colours with a happy message on it…this card would be great for someone who has reached a personal goal or some other remarkable achievement…I am also entering this card in the current Timeout Challenge #104 where the theme of the challenge is BOLD so I reached for the Altenew caps bold alphabet die to create my card…

I started by repeat stamping the background on the front panel for my card…I have only used one layer of the leaves and two layers of the flower here and stamped them using sand dunes,peach perfect and sunkissed crisp dye inks…I used the dotted stamp with rocky shore ink to fill in the empty spaces making sure not to crowd the stamped area…


I used a dotted rectangle die to emboss on this panel and then adhered it to a plain white card base…

I then die cut the word ‘yay’ from white cardstock using the bold caps alphabet dies and sponged some espresso ink on it before layering it on with the white craft foam die cut and adhering it to the card front…I also stamped a small label using autumn blaze ink and adhered it over the large die cut word…
On a separate piece of white cardstock,I stamped the layered flowers and leaves and die cut them using the coordinating dies before placing them in two groups on the card front..I have used autumn blaze,fire brick and ruby red for the flowers & rocky shores and espresso for the leaves….
To embellish my card I have used a few Nuvo jewel drops..

Happy Birthday Ma!

It’s my mum’s 60th birthday today and I’m sharing the card I made for her…fingers crossed it has reached her by now…I was very careful with my colour choices for this card and wanted it to look elegant and beautiful as well…

I first die cut the top layer of my card from a light grey textured cardstock using a dotted rectangle die and adhered it to a plain white card base…I started on my flowers and leaves stamping next…
I used my Misti and placed the all layers of the Build-a-flower Rose stamp on it and stamped them using various shades of Altenew crisp dye inks…I tried it out on white cardstock as well as a pale blue one and decided to use the pale blue for all my stamping…the Glad press-n-seal came in handy to easily place the flower and leaves on my card front once I was happy with the arrangement of all the elements…

I used Altenew Caps Alphabet die to die cut the word Ma (that’s what I call my mum) from white cardstock as well as white craft foam and layered them before adhering them on the card front…just above this I added a label with happy birthday stamped on it…
To embellish my card I have used some clear confetti sequins…
