Sending Love and Prayers- Altenew Floral Art Stamp Set

This card is a clean, simple and easy one to replicate. It uses Altenew Floral Art Stamp Set and some Altenew Crisp Dye Inks. I had one of the cards (unfinished) in my “stash” box and decided to finish it off with a sentiment and mount it on a card base. As a result I made 14 more and donated them to my church. I’m thinking of making more of them and just switching up the sentiment. It would make a great sympathy card or birthday card.

Supplies: Altenew Floral Art Stamp Set, Altenew Crisp Dye inks in the following combinations; Coral Berry & Grapevine, Orange Cream & Firebrick, Hydrangea & Andromeda, Volcano Lake & Emerald, Frayed Leaf, Gina K Amalgum ink, Versamark ink, Simon Says Stamp Wonky Rectangles Die, Altenew Wishing You Stamp Set and Altenew Crystal Clear Embossing Powder.

Using Your “Stash”

Today I am highlighting a couple of cards that I made using a background that I created months ago and didn’t know what to do with it so I put it in my “stash”….the box you keep your practices, mistakes, and “I really like this but I don’t know what to do with it” stuff.

The cards feature My Favorite Things Stamps new Bold Beautiful Die.

The rich beautiful colors were created with Nuvo Shimmer Powders.

The supplies for this card are: Black card stock, Neenah Solar White Classic Crest #80, #110 card stock, Nuvo Shimmer Powders: Atlantis Burst, Blue Blitz, Cherry Bomb; My Favorite Things Stamps Bold Beautiful Die, Neat & Tangled So Many Sentiments Stamp, Altenew Pure White Embossing Powder, Versamark Ink, and foam tape.

The lettering for this card came from the outline of my first card.

The supplies for this card are the same (as my first card) with the addition of Simon Says Stamps Wonky Rectangle Dies and Altenew Hibiscus Bouquet Die Set (for the sentiment).

Another Wintry Thank You

Today was my first day back to work after almost two weeks of vacation….I got so much done while I was out but, I have to admit….it felt good to be back 🙂

Today I have another wintry snowflake thank you card. It has a clean and simple look, I hope you like it.

This card features Nuvo Shimmer Powders which were used to create a background on watercolor paper. I saved the background in my stash and used it to die cut the word thanks and I also cut a strip and glued it behind the snowflake border. The color is rich, shimmery and beautiful!
