Winter Cardinal Card using Altenew Stamp and Dies

Hello everyone. It’s been a while I haven’t posted anything. I had been super busy with work and holidays.

Today I have this card to share with you all. This is Winter Cardinal stamp and die set from Altenew. This is my first non floral stamp I bought from Altenew. I love this stamp because this is layering stamp as most of Altenew stamps are.

So Here’s today’s card:

 The Focal Image:

The cardinal is stamped in Tim Holt’s Ranger Distressed inks in Abandoned Coral, Candied Apple, Barn Door and Aged Mahogany. The tree branch in Aged Mahogany and the circle behind the bird is ink blended in Hickory Smoke and Broken China inks

The Sentiment:

The sentiment says “you make my heart sing” from the same stamp set is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and the background piece ink blended in  Broken China.

Here’s a closer look.

I love these color combination because it reminds me of the cold and crisp winter scene.

The Background:

The background is one of the patter paper piece cut to 4 inches by 5 and a quarter inches using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle die.

The Card Base:

Then it is attached to a 4 and a quarter by 5 and a half inches top folding card base made with 11o lb. white card stock.

I loved how this card turned out. Hope you guys like it too.

Hugs

Altenew Inspiration Challenge August 2018

Hello, everyone. Thank you for stopping by. Today I am presenting my card I made to participate in the Altenew Inspiration Challenge August 2018.

My busy work schedule hasn’t stopped me from participating in the challenge this month because I just love the color combination. I had recently ordered some products from Altenew and hadn’t had a chance to play with some of them yet.

Here’s my card for today.

Altenew Perfectly Perfect

What Inspired me:

This is the picture form the inspiration post on Altenew Blog that inspired me to create my card.

How I made it:

I’ve been wanting to play with my new stamp set from Altenew called Perfectly Perfect. This stamp set is so pretty. The flower and leaves images in this stamp set are just outlined images. I love to use the outline images to stamp and color.

I stamped all the flower images and the leaves images on a watercolor paper with Versamark. Versamark is a sticky clear ink which helps the embossing powder to stick on it so I can heat set it using my heat tool to get the embossed image. I used White embossing powder.

Then the images were watercolored using the watercolor palette from  Prima Watercolors in the colors Tropical that I had bought on Amazon. I had in my mind the vision of blue flowers and green leaves on a yellow background.

Altenew Perfectly perfectThe Background:

Created the background on a white panel of cardstock sized 4 inches by 5 and a 1/4 inches in dimension. Used the yellow color from the same watercolor palette using the ink-smooshing technique. This technique is very popular these days to create a messy watercolor background.

Arranged the flowers and the leaves on the top left corner of the panel.  Some flowers were adhered directly using glue whereas some were added on a foam tape to create dimension.

The Sentiment:

Took a strip of black cardstock from my scrap stash, stamped it with two of the sentiments from the stamp set to make it look like one with Versamark ink. Embossed with white embossing powder and adhered using foam tape.

So here is my final card.

 I just loved how it turned out. Let me know what you guys think about it in the comments section down below.

I have linked all the products  I used in the affiliated links just in case if you guys are interested in buying them please do so through these affiliated links so I get a certain percentage of the sale without an extra cost to you. I appreciate the support.

Altenew Card Featuring The Main Squeeze stamp set.

Hi guys. Here I am posting a few of my cards made using the Altenew  Main Squeeze  stamp set. This stamp is a layered stamp set and is so much fun to use and create all kinds of citrus fruits like lemons, limes, oranges, or grapefruits.

When I started stamping these images in different colors of Altenew Inks I couldn’t stop myself and ended up with a bunch of citrus fruit stamped slices.

This one I used some lemons some oranges and one grapefruit image layered on a black cardstock panel cut to 4 by 5.25 inches and adhered that panel on a teal top folding card base.

I used all Altenew Inks to stamp these images. I didn’t have the dies to cut the images out so I used a pair of scissors to fussy cut the images which was pretty easy.

Here’s another one in green. This one is my favourite among all.

I posted this on my Instagram the other day and received so many likes and comments. On this one, I stamped lime green cardstock  with the inner layer of the small lemon stamp in Forest Glade Ink from Altenew to create a backgound of my own. I then layerd the stamped and cut out images.

The third one I came up with a much brighter color.

Oh, how I love this yellow layering cardstock. This is not a heavyweight cardsstock just a 60lb cardstock from Michaels. But I layered that on a heavyweight Neenah Solar White card base.

I created a littleborder of  lines made using my score tool and a bone folder. I then added some Nuvo Crystal Drops you can see in the above pic for some extra interest.

Last but not the least my next card in teal color.

On this one too I stamped one layer of the stamp with Versamark watermark ink to create a background with a subtle tone on tone look.

All the sentiments I used on these cards are from the same stampset.  All of them are stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder.

I loved playing with these stamp set a lot. I will definitely be making so many more cards with this stamp set from Altenew

Let me know what you guys think? I love reading your comments and suggestions.
