Altenew February Challenge : Take 2 (and 3)

HI there!

I think I have a new favorite Altenew stamp set . They are all so beautiful and I treasure each and every set I own, but some just 'work' for me!

I always cut out a few flowers when I start planning a card, just in case I mess one up. Well this time it paid off, because all four flowers I cut and colored were card worthy! I made cards with the two flowers I loved most .

Here's #1 :

And #2 :

For both cards I once again focused on the single flower in the inspiration photo, the composition of the photo and of course the wonderful color palette.


I used :



For both flowers and backgrounds I used the watercolor smooshing technique. I LOVE the variation in color this technique gives. And easy if coloring is not really your forte !

You rock : Positive and negative die cuts

Hi there!

I have two fun cards to share today! Well... just because die cutting often leave you with useful left overs!


You Rock - LOVEsvg


You Rock - LOVEsvg


You Rock - LOVEsvg

and the next :

You Rock - LOVEsvg


You Rock - LOVEsvg


You Rock - LOVEsvg


I used :


  • Guitar Free cut file from LOVEsvg
  • Grungy grid stencil from Enmarc (I think)
  • Distress inks
  • Enamel dots
  • Foam dots for dimension
  • Silhouette cameo
  • Label 'you' sentiment from Altenew


For the first card I cut the bottom panel of the guitar (solid) using watercolor paper and added the color with distress inks and the watercolor smooshing technique. I then used the outline die cut of the second card to place and adhere the negative cut pieces on the water colored base.

For the second card I cut a star with my Silhouette cameo, stenciled the distress inks randomly on it and simply layered the black outline of the guitar over the star .

I then added some enamel dots , black die cut stars and stamped sentiment.
