Elegant & Sophisticated Cards feat. Altenew Painted Rose for StampNation 2018 Birthday Card Stash

Hey folks!

In today's video I'm showing how to put together a set of elegant & sophisticated cards. These are for the StampNation Birthday Card Stash - DONE! challenge. I'm using the oh so lovely Altenew Painted Rose Stamp Set and doing some clean & simple stamp layering. I also have a link below where you can find the details about StampNation!

Our topic for our Birthday Card Stash today is Elegant and Sophisticated. Right At Home shared a tutorial over on StampNation today, but I don't have any Right At Home Stamps (I know! I'm sorry!), but I did have this gorgeous Altenew PAINTED ROSE Stamp Set. I think Altenew, elegant and sophisticated are synonymous.

You can watch the video on how I made my cards HERE. You can also click on the thumbnail link below.

These were super easy to make folks! I talk more about this in the VIDEO, but you can easily make a set of these or just one.

I stamped all of the roses on Neenah SOLAR WHITE 80 lb. Cardstock. Since these are layering stamps, I used my MISTI STAMPING TOOL. You could use a stamp block if you'd like. I've been using the Catherine Pooler STAMP BLOCKS a ton lately. They are awesome. The curved edges on them are the best I've seen so far folks!

I used all Altenew Inks, but I made sure to keep them in each of their own collections that they were released in. This way, I knew all of my colors would look great together. I used the RED SUNSET Ink Set, SUMMER AFTERNOON, COOL SUMMER NIGHT and the SHADES OF PURPLE Ink Set. For the leaves, I used the GREEN FIELDS Ink Set.

I show how I do this in the VIDEO, but I love the look of embossing over stamp layering. On the roses I used Hero Arts CLEAR SPARKLE Embossing Powder. and the leaves, I used Altenew CLEAR Embossing Powder.

I wanted to add some die cut frames to all of my panels. You could totally add faux frames and draw them in with a Copic Multiliner, but I wanted the extra dimension on my panel so I used the My Favorite Things INSIDE & OUT STITCHED RECTANGLE Dies and cut some frames.

These cards don't need a lot of embellies so I kept it simple and added some PEARLS from Hero Arts.

That's it!

I hope you enjoyed my card today! As always it’s such a great pleasure to design for Wplus9. Dawn and Crew are the best! DISCOVER more projects on my Youtube Channel.

  1. Parking Management Software

    Cloud based parking solutions
    Free Parking Software for Town Houses, Condominiums, and Businesses Solves Parking Problems
    Searching for a parking space is such as frustrating routine activity for lots of people in cities all over the world. This search is burning over a million barrels of oil of the world each day. There are also 4-parking spaces every vehicle in the US and almost all streets are most of the time, empty, which leads to urban environments that are ironically doing far more to accommodate the vehicles than people. As the global population continuously urbanize, without a convenience-driven and well-planned retreat from cars, these sort of parking problems will worsen.
    http://webparkingsoftware.com software is the first step in the right decision. It involves using low-cost sensors, mobile phone-enabled, and real time data collection automated payment systems enabling people to reserve parking in advance or predict accurately where they can find a spot. When deployed as a system, free parking software thereby reduces car emissions in the urban centers by means of reducing the necessity for the people to circle the city blocks needlessly searching for parking. Furthermore, it permits the cities to manage their parking supply carefully.
    This free parking software is now being developed in many different states and cities around the United States and some other countries. For instance, in LA, smart meters and low-power sensors are tracking the occupancy of parking spaces across the Hollywood district, one of the most congested areas. The users will be able to access this occupancy data in order to determine the availability of the spots and then pay for them with their mobile phones. Other than the environmental benefits and lending convenience, free parking software is improving the utilization of the current parking, which lead to greater revenue for parking owners.
    These programs will be able to make great differences on a neighborhood level, but more widespread development and deployment is necessary for free parking software to change the cities and to contribute to the transportation sector pollution reductions greenhouse gas. One problem is that there are no citywide solutions all over the fragmented private and public parking providers. The occupancy data has a tendency to have many owners and is not accessible or standardized in a way that may enable software developers to turn into user-friendly applications. Thereby, individual smart parking efforts are so far successful locally, but uncoordinated, and operates in their own entrepreneurial or bureaucratic vacuums without a need to take gap between current free parking software and more widespread transportation system planning is an enormous missed opportunity for the cities to reduce the transportation related emissions.
    Moreover, free parking software has been hindered by a lack of insight into the complete benefits of this software, specifically when compared to the cost of building extra parking spaces. Lack of collaboration between communities with the parking software programs, as well as lack of coordination between hardware providers, municipalities, and developers is also contributing to the slower adoption of smart parking. Nevertheless, it is possible to overcome all these issues. Cities will be able further accelerate these advantages by means of updating the land use and building codes policies to reflect the reduced need for parking.
