jessie bannerHey all! I’m Jessie, a thirty-something mother to one energetic 10-year-old boy from Saskatchewan, Canada. Arts and crafts have been a love of mine for my entire life. I picked up cardmaking about 7 or 8 years ago and never looked back. I will use basically any medium on a card but am partial to watercolours, coloured pencils, and alcohol markers. I dabble in acrylics, pastels, and gouache.

I love stretching things out of the norm, be it from the layout of the card to the shape of the card, and especially, the colours! It is not uncommon for me to paint flowers in some shade they would never naturally be like blue roses, teal poppies, etc.

My Project

Today, I am combining the Beauty Within and Wallpaper Art stamp sets, using the Rose Gold Crisp Embossing Powder. Finishing it all off with Just Thanks Wax Seal Stamp, and Rose Gold wax.

Floral Slimline Card | Altenew Beauty Within Stamp Set | Altenew Wax SealsI always find the look of white on black so striking and chic looking. Adding in the rose gold really set this one off the chart for me. 

Stamping and embossing the florals from Beauty Within and the foliage from Wallpaper Art gave it so much sparkle and really reinforced the ghostly white painting which I did using the Artists' Watercolor 24 Pan Set

Video Tutorial

I have a fun little video of the entire process to share with you all. You can watch it below or over on the Altenew YouTube channel. I hope you enjoy!

Thank you for spending some of your time with me today. I hope you feel inspired to reach into your supplies and create something beautiful today.

What a fabulous card!!! I absolutely love the shading you achieved on the flower petals. The rose gold is so pretty on the black. Adding the wax seal adds so much class! Imperfect seals are better than perfect in my book.

I absolutely love your card. I have not used my wax seals for years. I am going to get that out and get some new wax and do it. Thank you so much for the motivation.

Jessie, I love your card. It looks a little vintage and I love that era. Guess I’m vintage now, too. Thanks for sharing your ideas!
