Altenew August Inspiration Challenge

Hi all!

For the August Inspiration Challenge I created a card with the Everlasting Happiness stamp set from Altenew.

I stamped the flowers, colored them with Copic markers and cut them out by hand.

For the background I used Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink and the Watercolor Stripes Stencil.

I then arranged the flowers and adhered them to the card base.

Finally I white heat embossed the sentiment from the Wallpaper Art stamp set and used foam tape to adhere it to the card.

I want to share my card at:

OLC Stencil card

Happy Sunday!

Today I created a one layer card with the Blossom stencil from Create A Smile.

The sentiment is from Het Scrapbook Atelier and means Congratulations with your birthday.

Quick CAS card

Hi all!

I have a pretty quick card to share with you today!
I didn't exactly time myself making this card, but I think it only took me about 10 minutes.

On a piece of watercolor paper I did some ink smooshing with Salty Ocean and Antique Linen distress oxide ink to create a beach scene.
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out a circle of it and also used it for cutting out the Palm Tree (Design ID: 292340 from the Silhouette Store).
The sentiment is from a retired SSS stamp set and I think it fits perfectly with the beach scene :)

Little lemur

Hi everyone!

It's a National holiday here in Belgium so plenty of time to make a card!
I used the Little Lemur stamp from Create A Smile which was a freebie some time ago.

The background is also from Create A Smile and is stamped with Altenew Fresh Lemon ink and Versafine Onyx Black.
The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.
As a finishing touch I added googly eyes as I think it's a funny detail on the card:)

Shaker card

Hi all!

Today I have a fun shaker to share with you!

I first used Nuvo Shimmer powder for the background and white embossed the circles from Create A Smile. I also stamped some smaller circles with Memento ink.

Next I die cut the circle out of this panel with a circle die.

I stamped 3 cute mice from Clearly Besotted, colored them with Copic markers and used my Silhouette Cameo to cut them out.

On the background of this shaker card I used Squeezed Lemonade distress oxide ink, added the sequins and used foam tape to assemble the card.

Finally I stamped the sentiment with Memento Lady Bug.

Golden wedding anniversary

Happy Saturday!

Today I made a wedding anniversary card for a couple that is married for 50 years! Since it's their golden wedding anniversary I wanted to add some golden elements to the card.

I was inspired by a video from Jennifer McGuire where she used Perfect Pearls for pearlized stamp layering so I used the same technique on Altenew's Rose.
For the background I used Altenews Classy stripes stencil and Altenew's Enchanted Gold ink. This gives a beautiful metallic shine to the background.

For the numbers I used my Silhouette Cameo and heat set them with golden embossing powder. The sentiment is from Carlijn Design and is also heat set with the same golden embossing powder.

Hi all! 

Today I created a card based on several challenges.
I first stamped the butterflies from MFT in orange and aqua colors and cut them out by hand.
Next I used a paintbrush, Memento Tangelo and Altenew Aqualicious to make some small splatters in the background.
Then I added the strips of washi tape and stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black. 
Finally I used foam squares to adhere the butterflies and added some glitter with the Wink of Stella glitter brush pen.
