Altenew Card Kit Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello! I'm so excited to be a part of the Altenew Bloghop featuring the New Day Card Kit. I LOVE the stamp set and the beautiful 6"x6" Pattern paper packet:) If you are hopping along, you should be arriving from the blog of Mindy Baxter.
For my first card I stamped a one layer card using the Crisp inks shown in the photo.
The next one I decided to play with the pattern papers...SWOONING over the watercolor look of each of these..and I must force myself NOT to hoard them:)

LOVE that Lovely Die cut frame in GOLD Mirror cardstock. I also added a two layers of the new Leafy Wreath Die, along with various die cuts and Enamel dots from the kit. That sweet bicycle is a tag trimmed down to fit inside the frame.

And my final card is back to stamping a pretty floral arrangement, trimming the panel with the glitter tape and a tiny strip of the Apple Red CS included in the kit. The crisp inks used on this one are: Cherry Blossom mini cubes, Fresh Lemon, and Tropical Forest mini cubes.

I hope you are enjoying the Hop..your next stop is Chari Moss.

Theme and Sketch Challenge at STAMPlorations

Hello and welcome! There is a new challenge for July at STAMPlorations for Theme and Sketch.


I chose to go with the Theme: Stamps and Warm Colors, with just a hint of the elements from the sketch.  Here is my card using Trendy Spring Blooms stamps and coordinating Dies.
Masks made from a few of the coordinating dies create a cool white shadow effect for the stamped images, giving a touch of depth to the floral pattern area. Then I added some gradient inking with Distress inks.  The sentiment is from BEST MOM EVER. I trimmed the panel with Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies.
So I must admit, I'm caught up in the NUVO drop trend...Not only can any size"enamel" dot be made right on the card...without the fussy gluing nightmare, but..If watered down, the solution can be used as SPLATTER:) I simply place a drop of NUVO on my craft mat, spritz with H20, mix with brush and splatter away! Perfectly color matched with the "dots"..or in this card's case, one LARGE dot.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hope to see your creations in the gallery at STAMPlorations!
