Altenew – Rose Flurries in Autumn Colors

Hello friends!

Today I finished this card using Altenew stamps, dies and stencil. I was looking at this month’s Altenew Inspiration Challenge hosted by the lovely Virginia Lu and really wanted to join although it was a challenge for me indeed! πŸ˜€ Muted greens and oranges are usually not my go-to colors but I added a bit of yellow as well (like Virginia did in her card example) and after thinking about a few different designs I am very happy with what I came up with in the end! And I used my Rose Flurries 3D die set again, which I haven’t used nearly enough! πŸ™‚

Here’s my finished roses card:

Altenew Rose Flurries

I started by using the Dalia Stencil A and stenciling some yellow ink onto the card base as well as adding a couple of green splatters. Then I arranged all of my die-cut and glued-together roses and leaves on top. The layering die set gives a great 3D look itself but I enhanced the dimensional effect by

1) Using foam tape between the first and second layers of each rose!

2) Adhering some of the blossoms and leaves with foam tape to the card base as well while gluing other ones directly to the card base.

3) Bending up the outer parts of leaves and petals a little bit with my bone folder.

Look at the dimension up close:

I hope you like today’s card. Have an amazing weekend!

Altenew – Single Dahlia Stencil

Hello friends!

Are you having such lovely sunshine today as well? We do, and I am very grateful for it – it makes this whole lockdown a little more bearable!

During the current Coloring Challenge from Kathy Racoosin, I used a new-to-me Altenew stencil to color a background. The stencil is called “Layered Dahlia Stencil A” as it’s part of a layering set of two stencils. For now, I only bought the A stencil and I wanted to show you how beautiful the result can look if you use just the single stencil with different colors of dye ink! You can see my Coloring Challenge post of the background over here on Instagram.

To finish my card, I wanted to add a large sentiment with die cuts … And since I am very into the look of two different fonts together right now, one straight and one curvy, I created it with the help of an Altenew word die combined with alphabet dies.

I took the time to add some itty-bitty pieces of foam tape not only behind the “XO” but also behind the “love” die-cut and I love the dimension I got from it. Here’s a close up photo:

Altenew – Ditsy Print Card

Hello friends!

Today I want to show you this card using Altenew stamps. I was in the mood for a CAS (clean and simple) card design and pimped it with just a bit of heat embossing and three enamel dots. πŸ˜€ Take a look yourself:

Also, I used only two stamp sets (Ditsy Print and Label Love) and no dies on this card which was a great way to limit my supplies for a change! The card follows a couple of challenges that you will find below in case you want to check them out.

Thank you for stopping by! β™₯
