Thinking of You- Altenew Dandelion Wishes Stamp Set

Today’s card is another card that I made for the AECP Educator’s Blog Hop but didn’t use. I ended up cutting down the original card base and adhering it to a background.

The center square is framed with Altenew Rose Gold embossing powder.

Supplies: Altenew Rose Gold embossing powder, Altenew Dandelion Wishes Stamp set, Altenew Crisp Dye Inks: Morning Frost, Evening Gray, Moon Rock, Canson Watercolor card stock, Altenew Half-tone Square Die, Versamark ink, Mister water bottle, craft foam, Neenah Solar White Classic Crest #110 card stock.

How I made it: Stamp the dandelions by putting ink on the stamp, spritzing the stamp with water, then stamping the image onto the watercolor card stock. Continue to do this for each dandelion and the stems. This creates a faux watercolor effect. Cut card stock down to 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ and then rub the four sides of the card stock square with Versamark ink and heat emboss with Altenew Rose Gold embossing powder. Stamp a 4 1/4″ x 5″ watercolor card stock with dandelion wisps and Altenew Evening Gray ink. Stamp dandelion wisps on 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ card front using Altenew Morning Frost ink. Heat emboss sentiment with Altenew Rose Gold embossing powder. Mount the card front onto card background with craft foam. Mount card front onto Neenah Solar White #110 card stock. Finished card is 4 1/4″ x 5″.

Welcome and Hi there! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. To give you a little background about myself, I am a Christian, have been married for 33 years to my wonderful husband and I have two beautiful, adult, married daughters who are dear to me. I love to craft and find it relaxing, challenging, and a way to express a deep desire to create and make things with my hands. In the past my greatest joys in creating came from cross-stitching and sewing (I was a design major in college). But now I find it in paper-crafting, more specifically in card making. My other passions are bike riding, weight training, chocolate, and ice cream.
