Hello My Sweet Friend

Altenew Wonderful Wreath Stencil

Hello there! It’s been a long time since I’ve posted a card but not a long time since I’ve made one. 🙂 I have enjoyed the summer and have been making cards on a regular basis since August. My favorite thing to do, besides bike riding on a hot day, is to make a card. However, taking pictures of my cards and blogging are not my favorite. 😦

Today, I am showing off a card that I made in anticipation of the Stretching Your Stencils Class that I am offering later this month….with my friend Amy Hill from Sevenscrafts. This card will not be one that we will make in class but it is so pretty. I hope you like it.

This card features Altenew’s Wonderful Wreath Stencil and Geo Frames Stamp & Die Set

Supplies: Altenew Wonderful Wreath Stencil, Altenew Crisp Dye Inks: Morning Frost, Evergreen, Forest Glades, and Obsidian Pigment Ink. Altenew Geo Frames Stamp and Die Set, Altenew Canopy Leaf Stamp & Die Set, Altenew Sweetest Peas Stamp Set, Altenew Mini Hello Stamp, Altenew Clear Embossing Powder, Altenew Pure White Embossing Powder, Blending Brushes, Vellum, Altenew Embossing Ink, Black Cardstock, Neenah Solar White Classic Crest #80, #110 card stock, Foam Tape, Masking Paper or Scrap Paper.

To Create: Begin by finding and marking (with a pencil) the center of your card front. Using these marks as your guide and the Wonderful Wreath Stencil, a Blender Brush, and the Morning Frost Dye Ink, blend ink into stencil around the center. You will only use about 1/4 of the stencil at this point. Move stencil and continue blending to make a small circle at the center. Move the stencil around the circle in small increments. You will ink blend only using about 1/4 of the stencil at a time. Use masking paper or scrap paper to cover areas that have already been stenciled so that you can continue moving in a circle. On a piece of vellum, stamp a couple of branches using Forest Glades and Evergreen Ink. Die cut the branches once they are dry. Stamp the octagon shape with Evergreen Ink and the mini Hello with Obsidian ink. Heat emboss the mini Hello with clear embossing powder. Heat emboss small sentiment on black card stock and using white embossing powder. Use foam tape to mount the sentiment. When you place the leaf branches under the sentiment, place them with ink side down and use just a tiny bit of liquid glue on the underside to hold in place. Mount onto black card stock then onto card base.

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.
