Projects

I have four projects for you today! For my first card, I used Wallpaper Art Stamp Set and Rennie Roses Mask Stencil.

Altenew-Wallpaper-Art-Rennie-Roses-Mask-AlexSyberiaI started working on the card by gold heat embossing the beautiful flower in Altenew Antique Gold Embossing Powder  onto a white card stock. I blended the Persian Blue Ink through the Rennie Roses Mask Stencil onto a white card base. I die cut the flower with coordinating dies and adhered it onto the card front with foam tape. Next, I stamped a sentiment from  Inked Flora Stamp set and added a few  Midnight Blue Crystals.

For my second card, I used Wild Ferns Stamp Set and Mega Greetings 3 Stamp Set.

I then stamped the ferns using Altenew Glacier Caves Ink Cubes and  Altenew Cherry Blossom Ink Cubes and stamped the Love word. Next, I gold heat embossed the “YOU” word in Altenew Antique Gold Embossing Powder. I trimmed the card panel and glued it on white card base and added gold confetti.

For my next card I used Altenew Beautiful Blossoms stamp set, Mega Greetings 3 Stamp Set and Altenew Mega Love Die.

I started making my next card by making a card base out of white cardstock. Then I stamped a floral background using one of my favorite stamp sets. I made a sentiment by die cutting the word LOVE out of white cardstock. I gold heat embossed the upper layer in Altenew Antique Gold Embossing Powder and adhered all layers together.  I then stamped  “I” and “you” and glued the “love” onto the card base.

The last card for today features two elements which will always win: white-black image with one bright color. You can never go wrong with this combo. I used  Engraved Flowers Stamp set and Wild Ferns Stamp Set for a sentiment.

It’s been a while since I created my own background using stamps and a marker, and I had so much fun making this simple card. There are so many awesome techniques to create your own backgrounds!

I started by stamping the images on a piece of white cardstock with Memento black ink. I then colored my background with Copic Marker (B05). After my background was done, I gold heat embossed the sentiment in Altenew Antique Gold Embossing Powder onto a white vellum stripe. And then popped it onto the card.

I hope these cards inspired you to create some cards for the Card Drive!

I love (and own!) every one of these stamp sets, and I really like how you have used each one in a different color scheme. Each one is just gorgeous, and will surely brighten up someone’s day so much! Thanks for your wonderful ideas! I’ll be using them to make some cards for the drive!
