Altenew Persian Motifs - Pretty Little Flowers Lattice Shaker Card

Hey folks!

Today I'm breezin through to share a card I made for a friend of mine. She's had a tough time of late and I felt like she needed a lil pick me up. 

If you're interested in any of the products I have used, I will have links for you at the end of the post!

I love everything I make. For real. Good or bad, I love it. My love for crafting has two sides. Even if it does turn out how I want, I love the journey I take or the experience I have while I'm creating and I love the giving of what I've made. This is one of those however, that I just LOVE!


So starting with the "Lattice" Panel, I cut a piece of Neenah White Cardstock with the largest and second largest Stitched Rectangle Dies from Lawn Fawn. Then I took another piece of Neenah and cut it into 1/4" strips. I stuck those to the back of the panel in a lattice pattern using strips of 1/4" Scor-tape around all four edges. After I trimmed the strips that were sticking out beyond the panel, I added another layer of Scor-tape and laid a piece of Graffix Acetate on top of that. I used the same Stitched Rectangle Dies on a piece of Fun Foam as I did the Lattice Panel, to make this into a shaker card.

I could think of a bazillion ways to use the Persian Motifs Stamp Set by Altenew. This is the second time I've used them. You can see the first one here. Since I'm on a self imposed spending freeze this month (geez), I had to go to my stash (gasp!) and see what I had in the way of flowers. If I'm being honest, it didn't really break my heart. I looove these flowers and it tickled me pink (er...red?) to use them again.

These were great to color in with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Usually, when you watercolor you choose a couple of shades in one color right? I didn't this time and was floored by how easy these are to blend out! So groovy. I stamped my images on Ranger-Tim Holtz Watercolor Cardstock with Versamark Ink and Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. Then colored the Flowers in with #22 Carmine Red and the Leaves with #41 Light Green using a Zig Watercolor Brush. I fussy cut them out and although you can't see it in the picture, I used my Wink of Stella Pen on the lighter parts of the Flower. Done! The sequins I used for embellishment and inside the shakers are from Craft Medley.

That's it! Easy peasy.

Father's Day is not too far off...I better get crackin!

Until next time!

Making An Easy One Layered Card - Featuring Avery Elle and Copic Coloring

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share a suer easy and super fast one layered card with you all!

It's no secret that I love to mask and build up the images on a card. However, sometimes it's great to skip the masking and get the same effect. That's what I've done on my card today folks.

I'm a sucker for butterflies and if you make them rainbow and I will clap my hands like a demented seal. For real. So today I used the Butterflies Stamp Set by Avery Elle and did some basic Copic Coloring (color choices in thumbnail links below) in a rainbow color scheme.

On Neenah White Cardstock, I stamped my images in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink with my MISTI Stamping Tool. You don't need a MISTI, but I'm a manic and it's almost impossible for me to line up my stamps again with a …

The stamp set I used today is Ah-mazing! It's the Hello Lovely Stamp Set by Concord & 9th and I'm tellin ya folks, if you're looking for something that has a whole lotta wow factor AND is easy, this is your stamp set.

Using my MISTI Stamping Tool, I stamped my Neenah White Cardstock Panel with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink.

There are some really groovy stamps in the set if you wanted to just ink them up and stamp them within the outline image, but I LOVED the idea of coloring this bad boy in.

Using Dies On A One Layer Card + Altenew Majestic Blooms

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share another card with you all! I've done loads of Copic coloring lately and today's card is no different, but I wanted to try some new (to me) as well.

I think Altenew has some of the most amazing flowers on the market. Their design and versatility is ah-mazing. The Majestic Blooms Stamp set by Altenew is actually a multi-layer set, but I climb on the struggle bus every time I attempt this kind of stamping, so I decided to stick with what I'm comfy with and simply use the outline of the flower and color it in with Copic's.


Since, I'm going to color this in with Copic's and I don't want them to bleed through the inside of my card I stamped the flower and leaves on a piece of Neenah White Cardstock with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. This …
