Sweet Memories- Plants and Pots

The Plants and Pots were stamped on watercolor paper. I stamped the three pots again and die cut all of the pieces with the coordinating dies. I used Altenew blue and green ink cubes to watercolor the pieces. I shaped the pots/basket and added them to each of the plants for dimension. I used a green ink cube and the Altenew wood grain stencil for the inked background. A coordinating word banner from the set. The background piece was die cut using a stitched edge rectangle die and arranged on a white A2 card base.

Altenew- Happy Petals Stamp and Die

For this card I used the Happy Petals stamp and coordinating die. The floral stamp was stamped on heavy weight white card stock using permanent black ink. I painted the stamped image using waterbased markers. I die cut the stamped image when dry and die cut three more pieces from white card stock and layered together for extra dimension. I used the Altenew Dotted Swiss debossing folder for the white background piece. The gold metalic paper diamond was die cut using the Altenew Fine Diamond nesting die set. I assembled the pieces to a top folding A2 white card base. A matching sentiment from the set was added to the card.

Altenew- Playful Blooms 3D Embossing Folder

For this card I used the 3D embossing folder from the Sweet Moments set and white card stock. I inked the debossed side of the folder using an Altenew blue ink cube and white card stock. I then inked the raised images using a small sponge applicator and Altenew ink cubes. I used a trimmed piece of inked card stock for the word tag and added it to the bottom of the card front. I used a stitched edge rectangle die for the piece and added it to an A2 white card.

Altenew- Rose Mallow Layered Stencil

This card used the Altenew layered stencils from the Sweet Moments set. I used the layering guide for the four stencils and Altenew purple ink cubes set starting with the lightest ink cube. I followed the same steps for the green inked leaves. The piece was die cut using the Altenew rounded corner nesting set. I used the largest die from the set for the purple paper. The stamped sentiment was from the set as well.

Altenew- Tiny Sentiments stamp and Hello die

The Altenew hello die word is the statement piece for this card. I die cut the hello using black glossy paper and then cut two more pieces from black card stock for added dimension. A small sentiment strip was stamped and die cut from the set. The white card stock piece was inked and blended using yellow ink cubes. I used the Altenew Dotted Swiss debossing folder for the inked paper. The piece was die cut using the Altenew large rounded corner rectangle die. Three clear sequins were added to the finished A2 card,
