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.

Card Featuring Altenew Leaf Canopy Stamp set and Dies

Hello Everyone. Today’s card features the beautiful stamp set from Altenew. called Leaf Canopy stamp set

I stamped the outline image from the stamp set a while back as soon as I received my order from Altenew.  At work when I am not too busy I like to color the images. Then die cut it using coordinating dies at home. It just took me a while to turn those images into cards.

Here’s my card for today

I love the Blue and Gold color combination on the leaves. I used the Rectangle Stitched Die from Simon Says Stamp to cut a panel in craft card stock and another in sky blue cardstock. But the craft panel I die cut with the small one of the Leaf Canopy die to create a negative leaf image backed that with gold and craft pattern paper.

I layered the panels offsetting each other to show all the layers from each side also. I think that creates an extra interest in the layout.

Stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set that says “life is better with friends” on a while piece of cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and popped the piece on foam tape for added dimension.

Also attached the large colored die cut leaf cluster with one layer of foam tape and the small one with two layers of foam tape.

I love the combination so much. An extra panel of sky blue matted on one side of card brings the whole card together.

I loved this leaf canopy stamp set so much. It is so versatile and can be used in so many projects.

Here I used it on another much colorful card.

This one has more of the feminine vibe to it. The combination of pink and green is one my go-to combination when it comes to a girly card. I  cut the circles using Stitched Circle Dies from Simon Says Stamp. 

The large circle directly adhered to the light green panel but the other two are added on foam tape. The leaf clusters are then arranged between the two pink circles.

Sending lots of love sentiment is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The sentiment is also from the same stamp set.

Then it is finally attached to a 4.25 inches high and 5.5 inches wide top folding card base made of 110 lb white card stock.

I really loved how both cards turned out. Let me know in the comments what you guys think about it?

I really love hearing other’s opinion about my cards.

Birthday Card Featuring Altenew Hibiscus Bouquet Stamp

Hello everyone. It’s been a while since I posted anything. I have family visiting from back home and have been very busy entertaining them and also with work. Here’s the card that I made today using Hibiscus Bouquet stamp set from Altenew.

I love the combination of pink and gray.  Since the flower was a large image and as always I had to make a flower cluster, I didn’t want any distraction and wanted the flowers to be my main focal point.

Stamp Images:

Here I stamped these flowers in two other shades of pink. Because I love how crisp the Altenew die inks are. They are so vibrant and true to color even after it dries. So the colors I used was Rose Quartz in the first card, Puffy Heart in the second one and the darkest one, the third one is Purple Wine. The green for the leaves is Forest Glades. And last but not least the black outline is stamped using Jet Black.

Here is the picture showing all three together.

I arranged the flowers in layers with the help of foam tapes in the back. Some of the leaves are attached with just glue so that they look like they are set back a little bit to create extra interest.

I used the sentiment  from another stamp set. I stamped that in Versamark sticky ink and embossed with white fine detailed embossing powder and heat set it.

Hibiscus bouquet

Attached some sequins in coordinating colors to each o the cards. Decorated the middle of the flower with yellow Nuvo drops.

Hibiscus Bouquet

I love how it turned out. Hope you guys like it too. Let me know in the comments below which one is your favorite? Also if you have any suggestions for color choices of this card please suggest.
