Colourful Altenew Flowers

The Altenew 3D flower dies are among my top favorite dies and I have made quite a few cards using these dies…the card I’m sharing today has been inspired by a super gorgeous card that I had seen on Instagram created by @thecardlandi…she has created a couple of cards with these dies and they are both very beautiful…

I started by creating the background panel…I chose the Altenew deco wallpaper stencil and used black soot Distress Ink to print the pattern and then adhered this panel to  a plain white card base…I then started on the die cutting, and made sure to keep all the elements of one flower together so as to save time later rather than end up playing jigsaw with the die cuts…ha ha..

I die cut all the flowers and leaves from watercolour cardstock using the Altenew Rose Flurries 3D die and then used a whole lot of Distress Ink colours to colour the flowers and leaves…once I had all the elements coloured, I used a mist spray mixed with a small amount of Perfect Pearls gold powder and sprayed all the die cuts….once dry, I put all the layers together to make the dimensional pieces…
I tried various layouts for my die cuts, and once I was happy with the layout I simply used the press n’ seal film to keep all the elements in place while I adhered them to the front of my card…

I stamped and white heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock and adhered it on the card front and have used some gold confetti sequins to embellish it…

Two Cards – Anniversary & Congrats

The two cards I’m sharing today were very quick to make and in both these cards I have used techniques that I have learnt by watching Jennifer McGuire’s tutorials….in the anniversary cards with the cosmos flowers I did the fast watercolouring using the inpad directly on the image and for the congrats card I created the glazed distress oxide background using Distress Oxide inks and Distress Glaze on a glossy cardstock piece..

I started my first card by creating the flowers for my card first…I stamped the flower heads using squeezed lemonade and seedless preserves Distress Oxide inks and heat embossed the images using a pearl embossing powder…next I applied some Oxide inks to these images directly from the ink pads -spiced marmalade and picked raspberry – and then used my water spritzer with some gold perfect pearls powder mixed with the water and spritzed the images…this made the colour flow all over the image and colour it automatically…once dry, I die cut these images and set them aside to add to the card later…

I cut out the front panel of my card from Bristol cardstock and sponged some salty ocean Oxide ink all over…I then stamped the flower stems using lucky clover Oxide ink and heat embossed them with pearl embossing powder as well…I then used blueprint sketch Oxide ink and the warp speed stencil to print the pattern just above the stems…I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on this panel and adhered it to the card base…

Finally I adhered the flower heads to my card, using adhesive foam squares under a couple of them for a bit of dimension…and to embellish my card I have simply used clear Nuvo drops …

For my second card I have created yet another glazed Distress Oxide background ( I may be addicted to this technique)…I have used seedless preserves, candied apple and picked raspberry shades Oxide inks here…once the inks were dry, I quickly embossed the background using the WRMK geometric next level embossing powder and adhered this panel to the card base…

I die cut the word congrats three times from a thick white cardstock and once from white glitter cardstock and layered them before adhering them to the card…I also die cut two flowers and one leaf cluster from the same white cardstock…I die cut the topmost layer of these from white glitter cardstock as well and adhered them just above the die cut word…to embellish this card I have used some tiny rhinestones…

You Are A Lifesaver

I tried out two new things in the card that I’m sharing today…the first one is clearly visible – its the Altenew 3D Rose Flurries die and the second was texture paste which I mixed with some Distress Ink for the stencilled background…thank you for your help Lois…I wasn’t too sure how I wanted to use texture paste on my cards,so to begin with I’m trying it out to cover the whole background of my card..

I started by mixing some drops of shaded wilted violet distress ink reinker liquid with some texture paste…I then placed my stencil on a white front panel and then applied a thin layer of the coloured paste over it and removed the stencil and set it aside to dry..

I die cut  all the elements for the front panel next….I die cut the flowers and leaves from different shades of yellow and greens and assembled them and also die cut the alphabets from black cardstock as well as black craft foam using the inline alpha die…
I adhered the front panel to the card base and then added all the die cuts to it…I also stamped the rest of the sentiment on two white banners and adhered them to the card front…

To embellish my card I have added a few Nuvo jewel drops(orange marmalade) and applied some glossy accents over the black die cut alphabets…I also applied some shimmer on the flower and leaves…

Thank you so much for stopping by to take a look at my card….Have lovely & blessed day ahead…!!
