Hello everyone. Welcome back to my blog. I am showcasing the card I made using AltenewRose Flurries Dies for my cousin on her Wedding.
I will start off by saying how much I love Altenew products. Each stamp and Dies I have bought from them I have used over and over again in so many different projects and I still never get tired of it.
When I am at work I like to bring some crafts to do if I get any free time at work which rarely happens. I am usually very busy at work. But even the minute I am free I like to do some crafty things.
I used the Rose Flurries Dies to cut these layers of roses in different shades of pink and brought it to work to adhere the layers with a glue. Since this was a wedding card I wanted some glitter. The top layer of the flower is cut using gold glitter cardstock.
To add contrast to the card, I used olive green cardstock to cut out the leaves from the same die set.
This card is side-folding portrait style card which is 7 inches high and 5 inches wide. I cut a panel of cream textured cardstock for the base and matted with a layer of gold foil cardstock 1/8th inch smaller than the base which is then matted with polka dot gold foiled pattern paper.
The Mama Elephant Sentiment:
The sentiment Oh Happy Day is from Mama Elephant. The sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with extra fine gold embossing powder.
The inside is stamped with “congratulations” which is another sentiment from the same stamp set.
This is how I came up with a beautiful card perfect for a wedding.
I loved it. I am also thinking about making the same card in blue and silver. If I do I will be definitely posting pictures on my blog.
Hi everyone. Thank you for stopping by. I am participating in the February 2018 Inspiration Challenge on Altenew Blog. Today I have a beautiful Altenew card that I created using the Garden Treasure Stamp Set. I bought this stamp set a while back and I used it so many times. It’s a beautiful stamp set. Here’s my take on this challenge.
And here is the Inspiration picture from the Altenew Blog.
I picked the dark pink and light pink color from the Inspiration and green for the leaves of course. The stamp set I used has large and small flowers so it is perfect to build a flower cluster.
Since I wanted to introduce a few more colors in this project I thought Black and white always adds a pop.
Then I stamped the flowers and leaves with clear Versamark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder. I did a simple quick coloring using Copics.
I die-cut a ring using Simon says stamp stitched circle dies and started arranging my flowers and leaves around the ring to create a wreath-like cluster. The back of the flower cluster is sponged with green dye ink from Ranger.
The white panel was matted on a black panel 1/8th inch bigger to create a black border around it. Then it is mounted on a white card base slightly larger than the black panel.
This is my take on the challenge. I am a big fan of Altenew Products.
Hello everyone. Today I am here with my 3rd Valentine’s day card. When I come up with one idea for a card and start working on that project it usually happens that I come up with another similar idea to make another card. I am sure all crafty people will totally understand what I mean. It’s like a chain reaction.
Here’s my card for today.
Same kind of idea but this time I popped up the die cut word “LOVE” on foam squares.
I used pattern paper that is perfect for Valentine theme to cut out the word using my Silhouette cameo. I love how there are millions of things you can do with your Silhouette machine. It’s totally worth investing in one of those machines.
The word “YOU” is cut out using Altenew die. I bought that die a few months ago when they released it. I can’t tell you how many times I have used that die so far. Seems like I reach out for those on every project that I start doing.
Just background is a pretty pattern paper that looks like a watercolor piece.
I thought It was a little plain and simple with just the words on the watercolor background. But it doesn’t hurt to add extra bling to any project. I had this dark silver washi tape that I bought at staples a while ago. I decided to use a strip on the washi in the bottom and a little flag on the top left corner.
And that finished my card. I love the combinations of pale pink and hint of red from the pattern paper with the dark gray of the washi tape. And of course black and white to contrast the look. How do you guys like it?
