Love & Hugs

Concord & 9th and Altenew

Hi there! Today’s card is a bright and cheerful card sending love and hugs to your favorite person.

Supplies: Altenew Billowing Blossoms Stamp, Altenew Pinstripe Stamp, Altenew Crisp Dye Inks: Pinkalicious, Razzleberry, Starlight, Sea Breeze, Pink Diamond, Snap Dragon, Marigold, Chamomile, Jet Black; Concord & 9th Love & Hugs Stamp Set, Versafine Onyx Black ink, Altenew Crystal Clear Embossing Powder, We R Memory Keepers Nesting Circle Dies, masking paper.

How to make it: Take a piece of Neenah Solar White, Classic Crest #80 cardstock and stamp, in black ink, the Altenew Pinstripe Stamp. On another piece of #80 white cardstock trace a circle in the center of the card. Use the outline to stamp flowers around. Use masking paper in places where you want to stamp close to/over a flower next to it. Stamp some leaf branches, using making paper as needed. Using the nesting circle dies, cut out the circle (you traced) leaving the flowers to look as though they are a wreath. Trim card down to 4″x5.25″. Using the card front, position Love & Hugs stamp in center of a 4.25″x5.5″ (Neenah Solar White, Classic Crest #110) card base; stamp in Versafine Onyx black ink and heat emboss with Altenew crystal clear embossing powder. Cut 2 half-inch strips off the pinstripe card you stamped. (Save the remainder of the card for another project.) Place 1 strip of the pinstripe on each side of the card base (made of #110 Neenah Solar White cardstock) then adhere the card front onto card base.

Stay Beautiful My Friend

Altenew Painted Butterflies Stamp & Die Set

Welcome to Treasures In Letter today. I hope you are well. Today’s card was a gift for a co-worker on her last day at work. She was so nice to work with and I will miss her.

The butterflies are painted with Ranger alcohol inks on vellum.
Honey Bee Stamps has a beautiful Sunburst A2 cover die making a perfect backdrop for the vellum butterflies.

Supplies: Altenew Painted Butterflies Stamp & Die Set, Neat & Tangled sequins, silver mirror card stock, vellum, Versafine Onyx Black ink, Altenew Crystal Clear Embossing Powder, Altenew Ink Spray – Dusk, Altenew Beautiful Peony Stamp Set, Honey Bee Stamps Sunburst A2 Cover Die, Ranger Alcohol Inks: Mermaid, Sailboat Blue, Villainous Pearl Ink, We R Memory Keepers Nesting Circle Dies, Craft Foam, Neenah Solar White #80, #110, a clear double-sided adhesive (used on the vellum, that I am not mentioning the name of it because I don’t find it easy to work with).

How I Made It: I stamped the vellum with the Onyx Black ink and heat embossed it with Altenew’s Crystal Clear embossing powder. Once it was cool, I turned it over and from the back of the vellum, using a paint brush, painted with the alcohol ink colors. Once the butterflies were dry, I die cut them using Altenew’s matching dies and cut a second set of butterflies out of plain vellum . With the Honey Bee Sunburst Cover Die, I cut one background out of Neenah Solar White #80 card stock and sprayed it with Altenew ink spray. Using the We R Memory Keepers Circle Dies, I cut one circle the same size as the Sunburst center – out of silver mirror card stock and one circle, one size smaller, out of Neenah Solar White #80 card stock. I centered the Stay Beautiful sentiment on the white card stock circle, stamped it with Onyx Black ink and heat embossed it with Altenew’s Crystal Clear embossing powder. I mounted the painted butterflies onto the plain butterfly die cuts with a double-sided adhesive by cutting a tiny piece and hiding it behind the body of the butterfly. By folding up the painted butterfly it makes them float above the paper. I then mounted the face of the card onto craft foam and adhered it to the card base.

In the following photo you can see how the butterflies floated on the card. I hope you liked my card. 🙂

Blessed Christmas to you all! Today is Christmas Eve and the last day of my Christmas Cards posts for 2018.

I am looking forward to being with my lovely family tonight and tomorrow. May all your celebrations be filled with joy and laughter….and of course, yummy food.

This card is absolutely stunning when you see it in person!

To make this card you cut one of each Birch Press Die A, B, & C. Stack them one on top of the other and use liquid glue to adhere them together. On a piece of white card stock, use Go Press & Foil machine to foil the word Joy onto the card stock. Center and cut out the foiled Joy with the 3″ circle die.

Glue the circle in the center of the background die cuts. Put the gold glitter card stock in back of the card front then adhere to a card base. It’s that easy…and oh so beautiful.

Merry Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you!
