Altenew January 2018 challenge : Take 2

Hi there!

Like every other month, the wonderful inspiration photo over at Altenew sparked a couple of ideas, and I am here to share 2 more cards ... well one in this post and one more in the next post ( since I need two links to enter the challenge twice :)

For this graphic design, I focused only on the bright vibrant colors .

I used :
  • Cube builder stencil
  • Half tone happy stamp set*
  • Distress ink
  • Circle die
  • Fun foam to pop up the circle for dimension
  • White embossing powder
  • Rhine stones
  • Silhouette cameo

*I stamped the large happy sentiment, scanned it to the Silhouette studio in order to cut it out with my cameo, and in the end decided to use the cut out word without the stamped outline for a clean look.

Did you notice the 'Beautiful day' stamp set in the last photo... check out the next post to see how I used some left overs of this card to make a frame for that flower !

Thanks for visiting me today!

Hannelie, this is spectacular! I see your blending sponges, but cannot imagine how these sections are ink blended? yes, you are that good!

Leslie Miller said...

Brilliant how you used these colors. Your ink blending through the stencil is impeccable. So smooth and perfect, and I do love the colors. You make good use of your Silhouette to stretch the versatility of your stamps, too.
