Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Orion Geranium Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hi everyone!

Welcome to the release of a new Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Orion Geranium! You should have arrived here from the amazing Jenny Colacicco, you can find the full hop list at the bottom of this post.


The Orion Geranium is a gorgeous Craft-A-Flower Die set you can create beautiful bouquets with. You can use it with different colors card stock or die cut the different pieces and ink blend them or color them with Artist Markers.

For my card I die cut all the pieces out of white card stock and colored them with Artist Alcohol Markers Cosmic Garden. I find it easiest to put the die cut pieces back in the negative spaces of the card stock sheet and hold them in place with low tack tape on the back. Especially the very small pieces are much easier to color this way. I created a background with the Splatter Hot Foil plate and a rose gold foil and placed my bouquet on top of it. Because of the foiled background I had very limited space to stamp a sentiment directly on it, so I used a small one from the Tiny Sentiment Hello set.

AECP - Masking Unleashed

Hi everyone!

Today I'm sharing a card for the AECP Masking Unleashed class. I always love the look of masked flowers, it makes it look so realistic.

I used the Build-A-Flower Rose stamp set with Red Sunset Crisp Dye Inks for the flowers and Rock Collection Crisp Dye Inks for the leaves. The sentiment is from this Rose stamp set too and I inked the edges of the base of the card. To finish it of I used some gold and white watercolor splatters.


Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!

AECP - Magical Markers Techniques

Hi everyone!

I'm back today with a card for the AECP Magical Markers Techniques class. Usually when I use Artist Alcohol Markers, I fill up the entire flower and create shadows. This time I wanted to create more dimension by leaving the tips of the leaves uncolored. When I started it looked a little weird, but once the entire flower was done I loved how the flower had become more realistic.

I used the pinks of the Cosmic Garden Artist Markers bundle to color the flowers from the Amazing Things stamp set and die cut them. I covered part of the card up with the Gilded Ombre Washi Tape, stamped a sentiment from Amazing Things sideways next to the washi tape and placed the flowers.


Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!

Altenew Vintage Galore Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hi everyone!

Welcome to the Altenew Vintage Galore Collection Release Blog Hop. You should have arrived from the amazing Jenny Colacicco. You can find the full hop list at the bottom of this post.


I'm totally hooked by now on the amazing Hot Foil Plates, so for my first card I used the new Whimsical Peony Hot Foil Plate along with the coordinating Whimsical Peony Layering Stencil. I used a teal colored foil with the plate and the Crisp Dye Ink Sugarplums set with the stencil. For the background I used some gorgeous Altenew alcohol inks in the colors Dew Drops and Wisteria that match the teal foil perfectly!


For my next card I used the beautiful Golden Days Stamp & Die set. I stamped the flowers with the Crisp Dye Ink Tranquility set and the leaves with the Nature's Wonders ink set. I die cut all the pieces, created my bouquet and added the top flower with foam tape. The strip at the bottom is an extra strip I had left over from the previous card background, made with alcohol inks in the colors Dew Drops and Wisteria. I finished the card with a sentiment from this stamp set and added gold watercolor splatters.


I got so excited when I saw the Wedding Promises Stamp & Die set, that layering cake is just gorgeous! I used Red Cosmos inks and Prickly Pear inks for the cake and Sugarplums for the plate. For the last layer of the cake I used gold embossing powder. I created the background with the new Cube Builder Hot Foil Plate and a Rose Gold foil. The last background layer is made with Alcohol Inks Pink Diamond and Razzleberry.


For the last card I'm sharing today I used the Golden Days Hot Foil Plate with a Pewter foil. I ink blended the flower with the coordinating layering stencil and Martian Terrain inks. The sentiment is from the Super Script stamp and die set.
