Online Card Classes: Creative Colour Blocking


Sharing my card inspired by the Creative Colour Blocking lesson in Spring Card Camp 2.

I've used the Pinkfresh Studio Floral Background stamp, stamped with embossing ink on coloured card stock from stash and then white heat embossed with Wow Opaque Bright White Super fine embossing powder.

The sentiment is the Birthday etched metal die word and shadow set by PhotoPlay. I love how this turned out!

Altenew April Inspiration Challenge


Thanks for popping in and taking a look at my take on the April 2020 Altenew Inspiration Challenge below:

I dug through my Altenew stash and settled on using the Altenew Building Blocks stamp set and Altenew Crisp Dy Inks in Peach Perfect, Cotton Candy and honestly I'm not sure what gray I used but I think it's either Silver Lake stamped a few times or Gray Denim.
I heat embossed the square stamp from the Geo Frames stamp set in Golden Peach Crisp Embossing powder.

I turned the square embossed image on its points and stamped the sentiment in the middle.
It's adhered with foam adhesive and then embellished with clear drops by Studio Katia.

Happy Crafting!

Build-A-Flower Hellebore


I am trying to make time to use the healthy stock of unused products in my stash and was finally able to play with the Altenew Build a Flower Hellebore stamp and die set.

I used foam tape to adhere the blooms to the inked and dotted washi taped card fronts.

A simple design to show off the lovely layered stamps I love Altenew for :).

 The sentiments are from the Best Sentiments stamp set, the 2019 mini stamp set exclusive to customers who purchased directly from Altenew during the year.

Thanks for taking the time to stop in!

Happy Crafting!

Heat Emboss and Fussy Cut Thank You

I took some time to experiment with a few Altenew products to create this card:

I started this card by stamping the Altenew Pattern Play Circle background stamp with Altenew Embossing ink on white card stock. I then coated the image with Altenew Rose Gold embossing powder and melted the powder with a heat tool.

Next I stamped two of the three floral images from the Wallpaper art stamp set in Altenew Permanent Black ink over the embossed background. You want to give them a little bit of time to dry so the black ink does not rub off of the embossed areas when you fussy cut the blooms.

I stamped and fussy cut 3 blooms and added some light coloured pencil shading around the centre of two blooms.

Once I decided where my blooms would go I stamped the leaves from the Wallpaper Art stamp set in embossing ink and heat set with Rose Gold embossing powder. I also stamped and heat the embossed the sentiment as well.

I adhered the fussy cut blooms with foam adhesive, layering the left hand bloom over another fussy cut flower.

Altenew Educator "For the Love of Flowers" Blog Hop and Linky Party

Hello and welcome to the Altenew Educator "For the Love of Flowers" blog hop. I am thrilled to be participating in this educator blog hop for the first time. 

The hop starts off at the Altenew Card Blog and if you are here from the talented 
Amber Rain Davis' blog you are in the right place.

I became a certified Altenew Educator January 2019 and if you're considering the Altenew Certified Educator program, let me share a little about my experience. 

Working my way through the program was educational, fun, inspiring and, in a world full of deadlines, it was wonderful to be able to complete the program at my own pace. The wide variety of classes really stretched and grew my creativity.

We are celebrating flowers in this hop and honestly no one does flowers better than Altenew so the hard part, for me, was choosing just a couple of products to use 😉.

I decided to combine floral stamps and Washi tape and my first card is:

You Are Very Special

I covered pieces of white card stock with Altenew Red Ombre Washi tape, varying the layout of the tape strips.

Before stamping the images in clear embossing ink I treated the washi tape with a powder tool, stamped "washi paper" with the florals from the Incredible Stamp set in clear embossing ink and covered the ink with Altenew Rose Gold Crisp Embossing Powder.

 I then heat set the embossing powder, moving the heat tool off and on the image to avoid over heating the tape and making it bubble.

Next, I fussy cut the heat embossed images and arranged them on a 4"x 5 1/4" white card front, tucked in leaves stamped and rose gold heat embossed from the Wallpaper Art stamp set in the upper right and lower left corners and trimmed to the edges of the card front. 

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Incredible stamp set.

The leaves from a floral stamp set can make a beautiful card and I featured them, along with my "washi paper" on this:

 Happy Birthday card

I stamped and rose gold heat embossed the solid leaves from the Wallpaper Art stamp set, then die cut them with the matching die.
The Dotted Swirls Debossing Cover Die adding texture and interest to a white card front adhered to a white card base.

The rose gold embossed leaves are adhered diagonally on a rectangle of "washi paper", overlapping in the middle and trimmed the leaves off the edge of the rectangle.

I stamped the sentiment from the Paint-a-Flower: Poppy stamp with Altenew Clear Embossing ink and heat embossed with Altenew Rose Gold Embossing power on black card stock and then matted on white card stock and then black card stock and glued to the centre of the of leaves.

Speaking of the Paint-a-Flower: Poppy stamp, it is featured in this 

Poppy Happy Birthday card

One of my goals for this year is to improve my colouring skills, especially with florals so the new Paint-A-Flower stamps will give me lots of opportunity to practice. 

Here's my first go with the Paint-A-Flower: Poppy and Altenew Artist Markers-Set A. I used Frosty Pink, Coral Berry, Ruby Red and Grapevine for the poppy and Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades and Evergreen for the leaves and stem.

I glued leftover strips of my "washi paper" diagonally on a white card front trimming them to match the edge of the card front, and rose gold heat embossed the sentiment within the area framed by the paper strips.
