Hi there and welcome back to Treasures in Letters! Today’s card is another that I am entering in Virginia Lu’s Show & Share (May 2019). She was my mentor in the Altenew Educator Certificate Program and she continues to be a wonderful encourager and inspiration to me. 🙂
As you will notice, I have used the same stamp set as my earlier blog post only this time, I used various different colors rather than different shades of the same color. I hope you like it.
Supplies: Concord & 9th Wreath Turnabout Stamp Set, Altenew Pinstripe Stamp, Altenew inks: Warm Sunshine, Pink Pearl, Just Green, Rocky Shore, Permanent Black, Altenew Pure White Embossing Powder, Black card stock, Neenah Solar White Classic Crest #110 card stock, Simon Says Stamp Tiny Words Stamp, Copic Multilier .3, Gina K Designs Theresa Momber Vertical Greetings and Things, Recollections Adhesive Pearls, Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen, Versamark ink.
How I made it: I followed Concord & 9th procedures for turnabout stamps and chose a different color for each turn of the stamp (see colors above). I then outlined all the larger images with a black copic multiliner pen. I then went around and highlighted the leaf images with a white gel pen. I white heat embossed my sentiment with Altenew’s Pure White embossing powder and mounted it on a piece of card stock that I had previously stamped with Altenew’s pinstripe stamp. I stamped a small coordinating sentiment on the bottom of my card and embellished the card with adhesive pearls and thin strips of (scrap) black card stock.
Here’s a Mother’s Day card with “Mom” hidden within it. Can you see it? I was going to save this post for Saturday but decided, why wait?!
The following picture makes it easier to see the word “mom” within the background. I love using this technique.
Supplies: Altenew Bold Alpha Dies, Simon Says Stamps Cosmos Background Stamp, Gina K Amalgum Ink, Simon Says Stamps Sentiment Labels Dies, Concord & 9th Retro Petals Turnabout Stamp, Versafine Onyx Black ink, Altenew Crystal Clear Embossing Powder, Wink of Stella Glitter Pen, Altenew Artist Markers Set D (which includes: Cosmic Berry, Rose Quartz, Purple Wine, Puffy Heart, Mocha, Rocky Shore, Sand Dune, Volcano Lake, Lagoon).
How I Made It: I stamped the Cosmos background onto Neenah Solar White, Classic Crest, #80 card stock using Gink K Amalgum ink. I then colored in the flowers using the alcohol Artist Markers. Once that was complete, I cut from NSW #80 card stock 3 sets of the word “mom” using the Altenew Bold Alpha Dies. I glued 3 layers of each letter together. I then centered and placed the letters m and o on the card front and die cut. I then die cut the last m. I glued the floral letters on top of the white card stock letters. I then glued the card front onto a card base made of Neenah Solar White, Classic Crest, #110 card stock. Once that was in place I added the letters M-O-M back into the card front making sure all the lines of the flowers matched. While that dried I heat embossed the sentiment onto NSW #80 card stock using Versafine Onyx black ink and Altenew Crystal Clear embossing powder. I adhered the sentiment down using foam tape.
Today I have another fun card using Gina K Designs, Rina Krupsky Mandala Maker and beautiful Altenew inks. I’ve also used one of Birch Press’ beautiful dies.
