I am just quickly dropping in on this Sunday to share a card I made using my new pigment inks from Altenew! Here’s my finished design:
I started by using the Dalia Stencil A and stenciling some Coral Berry ink onto the dark blue card base. I stamped the layered blossom from Bloom & Bud in three pigment inks (all names are listed below). Then I arranged some die-cut branches, strip of vellum and the blossom using foam tape.
What I like about pigment inks that I used on my card:
1. inkblending on dark cardstock really shows up
2. stamping on vellum and heat embossing it
I made this card for Altenew‘s Pigment Ink contest and I hope you‘ll like it!
Have an amazing week ahead!
Follow me on Instagram for more posts. I am more often around over there. 🙂

How is your week so far? I hope you have things to look forward to during this time.
I’m dropping in to share a card with you that I first postet on my Instagram page and on The Foiled Fox’ blog a couple of days ago. It features a bright, happy shutter card with the newest mice set from Lawn Fawn, which is “A Creature Was Stirring”. If you have been following my card making for a while you know that I love to think of creative ways to use my stamp sets and really get the most out of them. So with this card I will show you an example of how to use the mice Christmas set for a birthday card!
First, let’s take a look at the outside of my birthday shutter card! I left it pretty simple so it will be extra special when the recipient opens the card and sees the interactive part.
SHUTTER CARD FROM OUTSIDE:
I used different patterned papers for my card, all from Lawn Fawn. The card base is die-cut from the 12×12 Really Rainbow Collection Paper Pad – Yellow Brick Road paper. The hello die from the shutter card set is also cut from that paper!
On the inside of the shutter, I added a little scene with two mice and a birthday cake, colored with Copic Markers.
THESE MICE STIRRED UP A YUMMY BIRTHDAY CAKE:
For the shutters, the inside rectangle and the belly band I used the 6×6 Sunshine Remix Paper Pad – pink dots paper and banner paper. For the birthday sentiment I die cut two of the Fancy Wavy Banner dies and layered them up. I used Kraft cardstock for the top banner. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn’s Critter Concert.
I hope you like my card! ♥
