Altenew – Gift Set using Washi Tape

Hello everyone,

and happy December!! It’s quite cold here and we even had some snow flakes today! Nonetheless, my project for today is full of blooming flowers! Are you up for it?

I had this see-through box from an old packaging laying around for some time and turned it into a gift box a week ago using Altenew Washi Tape! Super easy.

I also made a set of cards with a matching look to put into the box and give to one of my non-cardmaking friends. I hope you like it. 🙂

Here’s the finished box with cards inside:

The box before I made it pretty 😉

And three cards with matching envelopes that I made the box for:

Some details about my cards:

  • I decorated all envelopes with the same Washi tape as on the cards and gift box.
  • Card 1 was inspired by Altenew’s Diamond Frame die! I used the striped narrow Washi to recreate that look.
  • On card 2 I used colored linen cardstock and covered that with Washi. It gives a different and textured look that I really like!
  • On card 3 I added strips of cardstock in colors that matched the floral Washi for a different look that still is pleasing to the eye.
  • I used either foam tape or stacked-up die-cuts for dimension.

All supplies are listed below.

I made this gift set for Altenew‘s current Washi Tape contest and I hope it will inspire you to get out your Washi Tape. 🙂

Altenew – Bloom with Pigment Inks

Hi friends,

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!

Lawn Fawn – Birthday Shutter Card

Hello everyone!

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.



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.



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! ♥
