VIDEO

I have a video to share today creating a simple but elegant card featuring the Dot Botanicals stamp set. You can view the video down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

CARD DETAILS

For this first card featuring the Dot Botanicals stamp set, I started by ink blending a background using Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick and Aged Mahogany Distress Oxides inks.

While these stamps are meant to line up, I thought it would fun to off set them. Using my Misti Tool I stamped the solid images in Obsidian Black Ink and sprinkled on Clear Embossing powder. After heat setting the clear embossing powder, I stamped the dot images in embossing ink and heat set with Silver embossing powder.

I trimmed the panel down to 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″ and added to a white card base using craft foam and double sided adhesive. The sentiment is also from the Dot Botanicals stamp set. I heat embossed Silver on black card stock and added to the front of my card with black foam squares.

My next card is also featuring the Dot Botanical but this time I layered the images.

Using the solid images, I stamped a background onto white card stock and added to an A2 size card base made from Fog card stock.

For this card, I’m featuring the new 2020 stamp set. Are you ready for the new year? I’m not lol …

My background is created by ink blending a rainbow onto white card stock using the Milky Way Stencil.

I stamped the 2020 stamp set in Obsidian Black ink onto the card front.

This next card is a little more dramatic. Using a piece of Poppy Seed card stock, I inked up the edges using Black Distress Ink.

Then I embossed the 2020 stamp set with Gold Embossing Powder.

I finished off by spritzing on Altenew Iridescent spray across my entire background. Clean, simple and so striking!

Also being released is the Grateful Heart stamp set. I stamped my images in the Enchanted Garden and Tropical Forest ink collections. Then used the coordinating dies to cut them out with my Gemini Jr.

I used the Dot Botanicals stamp set to create a subtle background with Limestone ink. I trimmed the panel down to 3 3/4″ x 5″ and added to a card base created from Poppy Seed card stock. I also heat embossed a sentiment in gold embossing powder onto Poppy Seed card stock to add to the center of my card.

I added my die cut images to the corner of the card front and added foam squares behind my flower for dimension.

I used a variety of ink collections from Altenew to stamp my floral images from the new Rose Blossoms stamp set.

For the background I die cut the Layered Snowflakes Cover Die B from white card stock and attached to another piece of white card stock. Then added my die cut images to the card front.

Lots of inspiration from the new release that I hope you enjoyed!

Altenew October Stencil/Washi Tape/Die Cut Release + Giveaway

Welcome everyone! I’m so excited to be joining Altenew for their October 2019 Stencil/Washi Tape/Die Cut Tape Release Blog Hop! We have some amazing inspiration and giveaways!

GIVEAWAY

To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $30 gift certificate to 6 lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog by 10/8/2019 for a chance to win. They will also be drawing a winner to receive a $15 gift certificate from the comments left on each designer’s blog on the blog hop list. All the winners will be announced on the Altenew blog’s on 10/12/2019.

CARD DETAILS

Have you ever used Washi Tape for your cards? It’ so easy and looks amazing! Altenew has released quite a few different styles of Washi Tape that you can use on your home decor or, like I had used it, on your cards.

My first card is featuring the Calming Bouquet Washi Tape. It has a gorgeous floral print on it. I attached a piece to a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ white card base and trimmed off the excess. Bam! You card is almost done. If you are looking to mass produce cards or need something quick, this is the way to go!

For this particular card, I trimmed my panel down to 3″. I had also added the Gradient Lines Washi Tape to a piece of white card stock and trimmed down a 1/2″ strip. I added this gradient strip under my floral design. Then stamped a sentiment from the Bright Blossoms stamp set at the bottom of the card in Obsidian ink.

It’s so easy, I almost feel guilty….. almost.

My next card features the Gradient Lines Washi Tape. I added this washi tape to a piece of white card stock and trimmed down to 3 3/4″ x 5″. I attached to a white card base with craft foam for dimension.

I added the floral image from the Japanese Mum to the bottom corner and tucked a sentiment underneath. The sentiment comes from the Bright Blossoms stamp set in which I heat embossed in Gold Embossing Powder onto Passionate Pink card stock.

Also a part of this release are stencils! Yeah for stencils! This one is the Linear Center with this gorgeous design.

I sprayed the back of my stencil with Pixie Spray which is a low tack adhesive spray and will hold my stencil in place while I ink blend two colors that I completely forgot to write down.

Using the Mega Greetings 2 stamp set, I die cut the word YOU from black card stock 3 times and layer together with liquid adhesive. Before attaching my die cut to the card, I stamp my additional word straight to the card front with Obsidian Black Ink.

Now we have this amazing layering stencil Classic Pine A and Classic Pine B. It’s seriously like magic watching this come together. You could make these into a holiday cards or any occasion really.

I first stenciled my greens with Classic Pine Stencil A. I then added the pine cones with Stencil B but after I ink the image, I leave it in place and add a layer of Moonstone Glimmer Paste over the top for some sparkle.

After it was dry, I trimmed down to 3 3/4″ x 5″ and attached to a white card base using craft foam. My sentiment is from the Festive Foliage stamp set in which I heat embossed in Gold onto some Palm card stock.

For my next card I wanted to try something a little different and that is ink blending on Kraft card stock.

I used the new Rose Bouquet stencil and ink blended Worn Lipstick, Twisted Citron, and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide inks using blender brushes. I masked off the areas between colors.

I repeated the same steps for my next card but switched to white card stock just to show you the difference.

The sentiments are from the Dahlia stamp set and stamped in the center with Obsidian Black Ink.

My last card today features the Diamond Snowflakes stencil.

I paired this background with an image from the Festive Foliage stamp set that I heat embossed in Sparkle Embossing Powder onto Palm card stock.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration! I had so much fun with this release!

Altenew BAF Fuschia Blog Hop + GIVEAWAY

Welcome everyone! I’m excited to be joining Altenew in a blog hop celebrating the release of the newest addition to the Build-A-Flower Collection : The Fuschia.

GIVEAWAY

Altenew is giving away a $30 gift certificate to 6 lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog for a chance to win. Altenew will also draw a winner to receive a $15 gift certificate from the comments left on each designer’s blog on the hop. All winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 10/7/2019.

I have two cards to share today using the Fuschia BAF stamp set.

Using the layering color to help line up my images, I stamped the Fuschia flower in Wisteria, Hydrangea, Pinkalicious and Rubellite. The leaves I stamped in a variety of greens including, Parrot, Olive and Moss.

Then I used the coordinating die to cut them out.

I ink blended a piece of white card stock with Wilted Violet and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide using a Life Changing Blending Brush from Picket Fence Studios. Then flicked on water and dabbed with a paper towel.

I added my flowers to my card and trimmed the panel down to 3 3/4″ x 5″ and attached to a piece of craft foam. I adhered this panel to a piece of 4″ x 5 1/4″ white card stock which I then attached to a card base made from Fog card stock.

I finished off the card front by stamping a sentiment in clear ink onto Black card stock and heat embossing with Gold Embossing powder.

For my second card, I die cut a circle from a 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″ piece of white card stock. I attached this to a panel I had previously ink blended with Wilted Violet and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink. I then adhered a single flower hanging down from the circle by tucking a piece of the stem under the circle.

Once the front panel was complete, I layered the front of my card with White and Fog card stock.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration! Thank you so much for joining us!

Altenew September 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release

Welcome everyone! I’m so thrilled to be joining in the Altenew September 2019 Release Blog Hop! I have tons of inspiration to share with you today! I will have the blog hop info at the end of this post.

If you came here from Lilith Eeckels blog you are in the right spot. If not you can always start at the beginning over on the Altenew Blog.

This card may be my favorite out of the entire release. I’m using the Festive Foliage stamp set. I love the versatility of the stamp set.

I used the full image and stamped it onto Lapis card stock with embossing ink. Then heat embossed with Sparkle Embossing Powder. I then ink blended the edges with Azurite ink, leaving the middle free of ink. This is one of my favorite techniques to do with cards.

My next card is featuring the Faceted Stars stamp set. I stamped the image onto Bristol Smooth card stock with Embossing ink. Then heat embossed with white embossing powder.

I ink blended Cracked Pistachio, Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire Distress oxide inks. I spritzed with water and also flicked on some of the blueprint sketch ink for some added interest.

For the sentiment, I heat embossed in white onto Black card stock and trimmed down to add to my panel.

What a beauty this next set is! This is the Flower Garden stamp set. I randomly stamped the images onto Neenah Solar White card stock with copic friendly ink. Then colored with copic markers R59, R46, R27, and R14. For the leaves I used copic markers YG67, YG17, YG25, and YG23.

I trimmed the panel down and added to a black card base. So many different mediums that I could have used with this set. It’s perfect for almost any technique!

Also available is the Layered Snowflake Stars Cover Die A & B. These are sold separately and can work on their own or together. I die cut my layers from Peacock and Mermaid card stock and layered together with liquid adhesive.

I attached my layered piece to Pixie Dust card stock so I have this gorgeous sparkle showing through.

I created a beautiful scene using the Birch Impressionism stamp set.

After stamping the images, which are so realistic, I masked off the trees and ink blended a sky and snowy hill.

I once again used the Faceted Stars for a background by heat embossing with white embossing powder. This time, I spritzed the card stock with water and sprinkled on Shimmer Powders.

I stamped the sentiment from the NEW Believe stamp set onto Vellum and heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder. To attach the Vellum I wrapped the edges around my trimmed down panel and adhered the Vellum on the back with tape. Then added to a white A2 size card base.

My next card features an image from the large Happy Pomegranates stamp set. I stamped the image onto white card stock with Embossing Ink and heat embossed with White embossing powder.

I lightly ink blended Candied Apple Distress Oxide ink over the image and wiped away any excess ink.

I have one more card featuring the Flower Garden stamp set. I really liked how the images were arranged on the stamp sheet, so I left them in place and stamped them onto white card stock with Embossing Ink. Then heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder.

I lightly ink blended over the flower and leaves for an emboss resist effect.

Whew! That was a lot of cards to share! I hope you enjoyed all of the inspiration!

Holiday Seals: The Stamping Village

Welcome everyone! I’m thrilled to be sharing some inspiration using the new Holiday Seals stamp set. This is a collaborative set from The Stamping Village which includes images from 12 different companies.

These are designed as seals that you can stamp on your holiday envelopes but I think they look amazing on cards as well which is what I’m sharing with you today.

My card is featuring the seal from Altenew. I stamped the image in embossing ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. Then I colored the image with Prisma Colored Pencils.

I used a circle die set from my stash to cut out he image in a perfect circle.

For my card front, I ink blended Heart Beat ink onto Kraft card stock using the Beach Towel Stripes stencil from Altenew. I trimmed the panel down to 3 3/4″ x 5″ and attached to a white card base with craft foam.

To add a little sparkle, I went over the stripes with a Tonic Aqua Shimmer Pen and once dry, I attached my seal with foam squares.

This is such a beautiful set with designs from some of my favorite companies!
