ALTENEW GUEST DESIGNER


Hello my friends! I am so happy to be back to Altenew's blog as guest designer. 
You can also find my previous Guest post here


And today I want to show you my three cards I made with Altenew products. What we want in winter after Christmas days? I think, more flower cards! So I want to show three ways to make flower cards. 

The first card is the watercolor card. I like to use watercolor sometimes when play with materials. This way you don't need to many supplies, but you can create a whole picture on one small piece of paper. Isn't that magic? 
And I talk now about Build-A-Flower: Poppy set. In this set we have some silhouettes that we can use without stamping. 


First, I stamped the flowers and leaves with Rocky Shore Crisp Dye Ink on watercolor paper. Then I took my wet paintbrush and went over them with water to blend them and give them a watercolored look. After that I added some accents with pencils.


Then I watercolored the background with light grey. For the sentiment I used Hello from Flower Arrangement Die Set.


For my second card I used Leaf Frame cover die and Wild Rose 3D Die Set.


I started with covering up a piece of paper with Leaf Frame and die cut it. Then I colored every leaf using pencils and splattered it with white paint. Next I blended yellow and green inks using Pocketful of Sunshine Mini Cube SetGreen Meadows Mini Cube Set on my background and then splattered it with water and white paint. 


Once it was dry, I die cut the roses and glued them together using liquid glue. I repeated the process for the leaves. Then, I adhered the flowers and the leaves on the panel. And to finished my card I added Thank you sentiment from Flower Arrangement Die Set.


The last card looks like an open book page. For an expressive effect, I decided to give the card a vintage look. 


So I did the stamping on the Kraft paper only silhouettes of the leaves. In the center I glued the prepared form of a book turn, on which I had previously stamped an excellent selection of phrases.


Next, I decorated it all with stamped flowers from the Flower Arrangement Stamp Set and adding branches from the Forever and a Day Die Set.
I think the card came out fabulous.

    Altenew January 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway



    Hello! 
    And welcome to my stop in the Altenew January 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Enza Gudor 's blog, however if you need a map, a full list of the blog hop is listed below.


    I'm so exciting to be a part of this Release! And I am very grateful to Altenew for the opportunity to work with new products among the first, it makes me proud!
    Get ready to see here a lot of photos and cards. 
    I hope to inspire and help with some of your wish list decision in my projects today.

    Let’s start with the new Bloom & Bud Stamp & Die BundleI started working on my card by stamping all the layers of the flowers and leaves using Ballet Slippers 6 Mini Cube Set and Tropical Forest Mini Cube Set. Then, I die cut them with the coordinating dies. 


    For the background, I blended Caramel Toffee Crisp Dye Ink and Cosmic Berry Crisp Dye Ink. I applied the darker shade only on the edge of the panel. 


    After my background was done,  I assembled all the flowers directly onto the background with a lot of foam tape and I added a sentiment. And of course some accents to complete this card. 


    This  card is my favorite! Here I used new wonderful Dainty Bouquet Stamp & Die BundleThis card is absolutely similar to the first in the performance, so the principle of action is the same. 


    I made the flowers using Red Sunset Mini Cube Set and Sea Shore Mini Cube Set inks. For the sentiment here I took a new Simply Friend Die.



    My next card with the awesome Floral Heart Frame Die


    At first I toned white cardstock with different shades of pink and red inks using Square Weave Pattern Stencil and sprinkled it with white and red paint
     

    And then I cut out the hearts using a frame die. And tinted only cutting, then put it back. So I get a textured background. "Love" sentiment is from the Script Words Die Set. 


    For this card I used new Wonderland Stamp & Die BundleThis set is perfect for watercolor! So I decided to paint the flowers in watercolor technique.


    Next I ink blended Altenew inks from the Enchanted Garden Mini Cube Set to create a background. To make the depth effect I also sprinkled a little with the water for the spots and with the white and red paint and old tooth brush for making the fireflies effect.

      


    This is my last card for today. Here I used new Radial Hearts Cover Die.


    To create glitery background for my card I wanted to do something special, something magical. First I ink blended a panel with Cherry Blossom Mini Cube Set.


    Now time to do some magic! I covered panel with water-based glue and sprinkled it with glitter. I let it dry and cleaned off the excess. So simple to make, but what an impressive look it created!
