For my first card I used the Delicate Primrose stamp set along with the Delicate Primrose dies, Verdant Walk Paper pad, sentiment from the Ruffled Flowers, frame die from the New Day Card Kit and the Snowing stamp.



For my 2nd. card, I used the same Delicate Primrose stamp set but only used the last layer to create this abstract look and watercolors. I also used the Label Love stamp set for the sentiment. I just love love the effect on this one.



or my 3rd. card I went for a mixed media look. I used another new stamp Ruffled Flowers and the Ruffled Flowers dies along with the Celestial Paper Pack and the sentiment is from Wispy Begonia stamp set.



Hope you still are enjoying the release...I couldn't stop creating. For the next card, I used the same Ruffled Flowers stamp set embossed using the Rose Gold embossing powder onto a black cardstock and this time, I colored the images using Caran D'Ache gouache paints. 



I was having so much fun  and the products are so versatile, I decided to make a TN page instead of a card. My starting point was this GORGEOUS mega Love die, Mega Greetings 3 stamps and the Bed of Roses stamps :) I also used the leaves from the Delicate Primrose stamp set with the Delicate Primrose die. Other than these, I used the Celestial Paper Pack, hearts from the Love Letters stamp set. I also used some of the previous release products: Creative Edges: Lace die, Sketched Lines Stencil, Sweet Friend Stamp set.

Altenew November 2018 Stamp/Die/Ink/Sticker Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and welcome everyone! I am super delighted to be a part of the November 2018 Stamp/Die/Ink/Sticker Release Blog Hop over at Altenew.
You are going to love the various products with variety of styles. You can see all the November Release products HERE.


You should have come here from the talented Nicole Picadura's blog. If not start at the Altenew Blog. This is going to be a long post so grab your favourite drink, relax and enjoy :)


https://shareasale.com/r.cfm?b=888816&u=1051809&m=66850&urllink=altenew%2Ecom%2Fcollections%2Fnovember%2D2018%2Drelease&afftrack=

For my first card, I decided to go for a mixed media look using mix of products. I used the Handpicked Bouquet stamp, embossed the floral sprig using Rose Gold embossing powder onto vellum and colored using Alcohol markers.  and Handpicked Bouquet die to create the focal point for my card, I used Wild Ferns stamp set to stamp on the background.  The sentiment is from the Engraved Flowers stamp set. Other than this I also used the Creative Edges: Lace die, Sketched Lines Stencil, pattern paper and enamel dots from the New Day Card Kit. I used  Silver Stone ink and the Rose Gold embossing powder


My next card is using the GORGEOUS Leaf Medallion Die. This die has 2 pieces. For my card, I used both the dies. I started by creating a background using Tim Holtz alcohol inks, I then die-cut the Leaf Medallion Die and applied some Rose Gold and Gina K Hop Pink foil to parts of it. I really love the effect and have been using this technique for many cards :) The sweet sentiment is from another new stamp "Kind Confetti"

 

Next, I decided to show you two cards using the same stamp but different techniques and looks. Since the Tim Holtz alcohol inks were out, I decided to use them with the WONDERFUL layering stamp "Wild Ferns".
I created the background using alcohol ink and applied some Rose Gold foil to it. I then stamped the 1st. layer of the fern image using Alcohol lift ink and transfer this to a neenah white card stock, so I will be getting 2 cards actually. 
Once, I removed ink from the first panel, I was left with a ghost image of the fern onto the alcohol inked panel. I stamped the last layer from the same fern over the first layer to give some definition to the image. I then die-cut the word HUGS from Script Words Die, stacked it 3 times and adhered it to the panel. The words "sending lots of" is from the Heart Flowers Stamp set.



Now the white panel, which I used to transfer the image to while using the Alcohol lift ink is the start of the 2nd. card. I stamped the 3rd. layer of the same fern using Aqualicious ink. I then stamped some other fern images to this card using Altenew Razzelberry ink and some Delicata gold ink. I then die-cut the word "LOVE" from the Script Words Die, stacked and adhered it to the card.



Fun isn't it!!!
Now to my last card...there are so many ideas going on in my head but I decided to go for a no-line watercolor card. This is one of my favourite techniques. I used the Engraved Flowers stamp set along with the Kind Confetti stamp set. See its so easy to mix and match various stamps :)

Heffy Doodle: Sending Positive Vibes

Hello everyone! I am on the Heffy Doodle blog today, sharing a fun card using few of the new release products. I used Whatcha Saying Now , Dino Time clear stamp sets. Whatcha Saying Now, Dino Time and the Metric Stitched Rectangle Dies. Metric??? YES!!! It's the size for UK/EU card sizes. Perfect for A4 cardstock. AWESOME!! We also have the Imperial size, which is the standard US size, check out HERE. Finally, I also used the new Cross Walk stencil to create my background.





To start with I die cut the rectangle white panel using the Metric Rectangle die. I then masked the edges and sponged some distress ink to it. I then took the stencil and sponged some more ink through it. Remove the stencil and spray some shimmeringz spray. Let this panel dry and remove the mask.

I then stamped the images. I colored the dinos using copic markers. I added some shadows to the palm trees using pencil colors and die cut the images using coordinating dies. I then stamped the sentiment and die cut that too.



Now, adhere the panel to the cardbase. Finally adhere all the images to the card.

Hope you enjoyed this fun and playful card. Have a happy crafty day!

Heffy Doodle Blog Hop

Hello and welcome! I am super excited to share the Heffy Doodle Release 5 with you all along with some of the team and our special guests. It's packed with wonderful products and there is something for everyone :) 
You should have arrived here from Koren Wiskman's blog.


For today, I have 2 cards to share with you using the fun new products.
Card 1
I used the Stargazer backdrop die to die cut the panel and sponged it using distress inks. I then applied snow using the First Snow stencil and let it dry. I then die cut the hills using the stitched Slopey Joes border dies and sponged the edges. I then applied some white puff twinkle embossing powder by WOW! and heat set it.
I then stamped, colored the images from Santa's Village and Wanna Build a Snowman stamp set. I then fussy cut them and adhered everything to the card panel. I then adhered the panel to a white cardbase.
For the sentiment, I die cut the Heffy Cuts: Merry and Christmas, dabbed Delicata gold ink to it and adhered it to the card.



Card 2

I started with creating my background using some acrylic paints and let it dry. I then applied embossing paste through the StarFall stencil. I then stamped and colored the images using Santa's Village stamp set and die cut them using the co-ordinating dies. I masked the sentiment from the Holiday Sentiment Duos stamp set, stamped and embossed it onto a black stripe. I adhered the sentiment stripe after lining it with gold glitter paper.
To finish, I added some puff paint to the santa's hat and the roof.
