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.

Altenew-Wild-Ferns-Mega-Greetings-AlexSyberiaAt first I toned white cardstock with different shades of pink inks using Altenew Cherry Blossom Ink Cubes. 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!
