Hi there and happy Thursday. I’m so excited to be here with you today as part of the Altenew May Release. You should have arrived here from the awesome May, but if not don’t worry there is a hop list at the bottom of my post.
Today we are releasing new stamps, dies and embossing powder! So lots of amazing NEW products to be having fun with! I have had soooo much fun with these new products and have 3 different cards to share with you:
How fun would it be to send someone a card every month with a monthly calendar on? The way you would know that they would keep it out for a whole month 😉 I used 365 Stamp Set to create the calendar and then stamped flowers using Budding Thanks Stamp set. I have to say I LOVE how clever 365 Stamp Set and how to say that it’s a great set to have in your stash!
For this card I created a whole background with Budding Thanks Stamp Set. I love how this looks and would love cushions exactly like it! Maybe I need to get some fabric inks! To finish I added a black sentiment strip using a sentiment from Enchanted Iris Stamp Set and the new White Crisp Embossing Powder.
My last card has to be my fave of the three… only because of the rainbow flowers. I stamped, masked and embossed (using the new White Crisp Embossing Powder) the large flower from Enchanted Iris Stamp Set along the top and bottom of a piece of watercolour card. I wet the whole piece and dropped in Crisp Inks to create the rainbow effect (Ruby Red, Orange Cream, Warm Sunshine, Parrot, Ocean Waves and Deep Iris).
