Colour Your Day!


I've had a busy last few weeks with back to back scrapbooking/papercrafting events. If you haven't checked out the Scrap Shotz blog, a local online store, click HERE to take a look; I design for the store and help out at the local events so you can see some of the other projects I created for them :).

I have another project to share as I work towards my Altenew Level 2 Educator Certification. This card was inspired by Lesson 1 of the Colour Your Day class

I picked up this Altenew Build A Flower Hibiscus stamp & die set from Scrap Shotz at the recent Scrapbooks and Cards Today event in Calgary. This set is GORGEOUS with 5 stamp layers in the flower!   I pulled out all my blue Altenew Inks and it was pretty cool to see how some were warm blues and others cool blues. These inks are the Glacier Caves Oval set and as the stamp set has 5 layers I double stamped the lightest shade, Arctic Frost for the 2nd layer to have 5 ink colours to use with the stamp layers.

The background was inked with the Altenew Art Deco stencil and Arctic Frost & Persian Blue inks.

The stems were stamped with Altenew Sunkissed and Firebrick ink.

Leaves were stamped with the Altenew Tropical Forest collection and all the images were die cut with the coordinating die.

Lastly, a sentiment from the Wild Hibiscus stamp set was stamped in Altenew Sapphire ink, the card panel matted on Altenew Cherry wood paper and then embellished with Pretty Pink Posh Sea Glass gems.

I will gift this card to my mom for Mother's Day, I think she'll love it!

Have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by!
