Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop

Hello, and welcome to this month's special release Blog Hop! The three new stamp sets that were revealed yesterday are now available for purchase at the Altenew store, along with nine new sets of oval ink pads.


These stamp sets were designed specifically for the Celebrating Parents Card Drive, and 20% of all profits will be donated to an international charity organization, the Zakat Foundation. The donations will support seniors.

We have a special guest designer today, Vera Yates, who has been helping us with the Celebrating Parents Card Drive. Thank you Vera for helping us with this cause!

Let's get started with a few cards designed by Jen and me.

Best Mom

The large floral image from the Best Mom set was stamped on a piece of white card stock and colored with alcohol based markers. The image was then trimmed on one side and popped up on a white card base. Sentiments from the Penned Rose set completes this card.

Penned Rose

The beautiful Rose from the Penned Rose set was stamped and colored with markers. Hand drawn lines and a bit of ink splatter creates the perfect background for this large rose.

Best Mom

On this card, once again the large floral image from the Best Mom set was stamped on a white card base and paired with a sentiment from the same set. The leaves were colored with an alcohol based marker, and the flowers were colored on a separate piece of paper using Peerless water colors. The flowers were then trimmed and adhered to the card base at their center leaving the petal to pop up slightly.

best Dad

Don't you just love the various elements in the new Best Dad set?! Here they were stamped, colored and popped up gallery style on a Woodgrain Bark card base. The sentiment comes from the same set.

I love the Bocah burst cards! There is so much you could do with those! The florals are just gorgeous. I will be watercoloring for sure! I think making cards for our seniors is a tremendous idea! I am sure many families will appreciate so many caring people!

I love these great cards! I have decided to give watercolor a try if everyone else can do it then I shall give it a try.
