Altenew February Challenge 

Buenas All,

Today I’ll be sharing with you my card entry for the Altenew February Challenge. For my card I was inspired by the fabulous Jennifer McGuire’s recent YouTube Faux Colored Embossing. Here’s the link to her video http://youtu.be/GUGtURlKpC4 Love all Jennifer’s tutorials so check her out.


First, I started with the roses from Altenew’s Vintage Roses. I did second generation stamping using the solid stamp first and then made my way up to the last layer which would be your darkest layer/color. For the last layer what I did was stamped the layer with versamark clear ink which is a sticky ink. I then add gold embossing powder and heat set it till all the powder was melted. See photo below

Next, I cut my card base to a standard size A2 card and my panels size 4.25×5.50″ and did a tone on tone with my panels using a woodgrain stamp from Winnie and Walter. Once I was done with my stamping I went ahead and cut off some strips from my card base and front panel to add the acetate for the window look. I took my card base and made two strip cuts and did the same for my front panel. First cut was a 1/2″ strip and the second was 1.25″. I kept the 1/2″ strip and saved the other for another project (I love keep all my scraps). See photo below.

You should end up with two of the left side strip and two of the right side strip (see photo above) a total of four strips (strips from the card base and from the panels). For the acetate sheet I cut it to about three inches first and measured accordingly and I cut to about 2.25″. Once I got all my pieces cut I adhere the acetate first to my card base and then the smaller strip behind the acetate on the far right edge.

Before I adhere my last panel I stamped my sentiment from WPlus 9 with versamark ink added good embossing powder, and heat set it till the powder was all melted. Once that’s done I adhere my panel to the card base. I also added some stamped leaves inside the card for it to show through the window I created. See photo below.


Lastly, I added the roses to the front panel. And voila! All done! I hope I did not confuse or lost you while reading through. Next time I’ll take more photos and one day even do a video! Wink wink… Again, thanks for stopping by have a beautiful day! Products listed below.

Xoxo,

Lydine

Hello Beautiful + Second entry for Hero Arts: Fabulous Flowers Challenge

Have Adai Everyone,

Sorry for this late post! Had some family that came in from Saipan (sister island) and I’ve been exhausted with the family gatherings filled with fun and laughter! Family time is everything to me. 

I created this card using Hero Arts color layering stamp set. See photo below.

  

Love this stamp set and all of Hero Arts Color Layering sets. Simply gorgeous! Ok, on to the card! I found an inspiration on Pinterest and wanted to create a card just like it. I’d say it’s not as gorgeous as Joni’s card but I’m happy with the end result. Here’s a link to her blog post with her beautiful creations http://jonininaandaya.blogspot.com/2014/10/pretty-pink-posh-october-blog-hop.html 

Here’s some photos of the card I made. 

   

I used spellbinders’s border dies for the layers on top of card and for the cute mini flower & leaf is from Lia Griffith. I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I loved making it. This card will be “Card 2” for my entry for the the Hero Arts: Fabulous Flowers Challenge. Thanks for stopping by! 

Xoxo,

Lydine
