Project Inspiration:

I have a few projects to share with you. So let's get started.

07122021 Altenew Craft You Life Seasonal Blooms 5wm

I started by heat embossing the image on teal cardstock in Antique Gold Embossing Powder. Next, through the coordinating stencils, apply Sapphire, Azurite, and Dark Night Dye Inks. Once done, I used the coordinating dies to die cut the image. Then I altered the die-cut a little to split it into two parts.

On purple card front, I added gold paint splatters from the Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan Set. Then adehered the two pieces of die-cuts onto either corner with foam tape. For the sentiment, I used the Gold Glitter Cardstock and die-cut the word “hello”. To complete the look, I adhered Antique Gold Sequins.

For the card above, I used a technique I have shared previously in one of my videos. To achieve this look, all you need is a Navy Cardstock and the Greeen Fields Mixed Media Pigment Inks!

I have not yet tried it with the Red Cosmos Mixed Media Inks, but you should definitely give it a go! But this color combination looks so good in person! This card came together rather quickly. I ran the Navy Cardstock through the die-cutting mchine and then swiped the inks. Do check the video to find HOW to do this to achieve the perfect look. I added a strip of watercolored cardstock, using the same inks. And finished it off with a sentiment die-cut out of the Green Glitter Cardstock.

One of my favourites! This was going to the bin. Let's first get to how I created it. I swiped Jet Black Mixed Media Dye Ink onto the raised portions of the 3D embossing folder in the project kit. Then I placed my cardstock over it and ran it through the die-cutting machine to get a letterpress design. It looked nice, fabric kind… but was missing something. So, I cut it out and set it aside.

I used a white gel pen and with a very light/gentle hand I drew a random grid like pattern. I would have preferred a stamp but I dont't have one like this from Altenew nor do I have a good white ink. So I drew it. I think it turned out great! I added white splatters to this then adered the cut out letterpress design with foam tape. To finish, I adhered a white die-cut sentiment “hi”.

Obviously, there had to be a watercolor project :) I kept it really simple. No over coloring this time, no dramatic backgrounds. I let the stamp shine in all its glory! And I like the pretty look. Though, I positioned my sentiment a tad lower but dropped the stamp block from one end… so had to gently place it from the other end too!

I wanted the sentiment to be a tad lower. Anyway, if you would like to see how I colored this panel, please watch the video below or head over to YouTube.

I hope you liked the projects I shared with you. I had so many ideas, you guys! BUT so little time ;)

Imagine my great disappointment when my quick gut reaction to JUMP ON THIS ONE must have turned out to be the same reaction everyone else had!!! How can it possibly be sold out TODAY!
This definitely looks like a must have kit. I love the idea of all the components matching together. It looks like the possibilities with this kit are beyond endless…if there can be such a thing!

Mary Ellen Guikema July 12, 2021 - 12:05 PM

Oh my gosh, I LOVE this!!!!! I clicked the buy too late, and they were all sold out ☹️. Love all the possibilities this kit offers, and the design of the flowers are so great. I hope youL continue doing these types of kits.

Wow! This kit is amazing! And I love the gorgeous inspiration cards.

JL July 12, 2021 - 12:34 PM

I assume the embossing folder lines up w/ the stamp. I have a couple coordinating stamp/embossing folder sets and the ones that actually line up properly are awesome! This is out of my price range, but what a fabulous product!

Donna Walls July 12, 2021 - 12:35 PM

Beautiful inspiration cards, I’m very interested in this subscription and looking forward to seeing all the inspiration in the hop before commiting.
