Today i have a card to share using Saturated Canary's Elphie.
I coloured her in usual day to day colours rather than halloween and created this simple birthday card.
I cropped my image and blew it up slightly so it fit a 6x6 base, and coloured using promarkers.
I matted my backing paper on white card. I finished by adding a sentiment and some sequins and gems.

Today i have 3 cards to share, my other post will be on later.
Over the weekend i was busy playing with my Altenew Spring Daisy stamps and created these two cards.

This is my first card. I used the Spring Daisy and the Vintage flowers stamps to create this A6 tent fold card. The way i stamped it makes it look like there is a mirror reflection. I made a banner across the middle and stamped on of the sentiments from the daisy set in the middle.

Id like to enter this into the following:
Supplies for this card:
  • White card
  • Spring Daisy and Vintage flowers Altenew stamp sets
  • Mix of dew drop inks
  • Sequins
My second card for today again uses the daisy set, with the smaller flower images coming from the Vintage flowers. I kept my colour combo to orange and black for this one and kept the card very simple by following the sketch.

Supplies for this card:
  • 5x7 white card base
  • Spring Daisy and Vintage flower stamp sets
  • Dew drop inks

Altenew at Christmas

Yes, i have a second Altenew post today again for the Ultimate bloghop, this time featuring the Beautiful Day stamp set. I decided to try using the flower for a christmas card, so i came up with this design. I made a card like this for a competition a few months ago but it was a plain birthday card.
I matted gold mirror card with some a background paper from a christmas pad i had, then die cut a circle so you can see into the card. I stamped my flowers and leaves and cut them out before arranging them around the circle.
I added sequins to finish and stamped a sentiment inside.

Supplies to make this card:
  • White 6x6 square card base:  My usual card choice
  • Gold mirror card: A must for festive cards
  • Christmas paper pad: I used a first edition one here but any would do
  • Altenew Beautiful day stamps
  • Mix of dew drops and versafine ink: One of the dew drop inks i used is a sparkly red which looks great as the top layer.
  • Christmas sentiments: The one i used is from Lili of the Valley.
  • Sequins
