Today I made a few cards

Let’s start with the first one.. Galaxy type of coloring is one of my favorite techniques. So I painted this good size rose with this technique.

27-Feb-2020 13-16-20

In this card I used Altenew inked rose stamp set


I stamped with black embossing powder. To color this pretty stamp I used Altenew 36 watercolor pan. Then die cut it. 


I added extra white galaxy details using white gel pen.


This sentiment  is from  altnew happy dream stamp


For the second card I liked it to be simple elegant with some stetching..


I usedaltenew handpicked boutique stamp set to stamp in a white cardstock. Adding the layer using Altenew Cherry Blossom Mini Cube Set And Altenew Green Fields Mini Cube Set After the layered Stamping .. I add extra detail using markers. I stamped the same image and I add a second layer for the main flower and the leaves.

 Then I made a simple stetchs with black thread.


Then stamped this simple sentiment from the same stamp set..


For the third card.

I was a little lazy to create a mixed media card from scratch.. So I used some pattern paper from Altenew new day card kit paper pack.


The geometric shape is one of my favorite in card making it give it more details and dimensions.



So I die cut these circles for the flower, butterflies to create this scene card. I placed it over a stripped pattern paper from the same Altenew new day card kit paper pack


Add some colors over the paper using transparent gesso and using Altenew 36 watercolor pan

To finish my card I added this sentiment and some heart sticker from the same



For the forth card..


I got this idea to made this simple Shaker card using Altenew new day card kit paper pack and a real flower with sequins as a Shaker element.


It is super simple one using this amazing pattern paper then i die cut this heart shape and fill it with the Shaker element .. Add the sentiment fromAltenew inked rose stamp set


I stamped it with permenent black ink over accete paper and placed them over the card.


This one is my daughter favorite.


For the fifth card.


So elegent simple and cute.. A simple flowers cluster ovw3er a vellum.

I used  Altenew Dotted scales debossing cover die over a vellum. To create a cover or second layer for the card. 



For the image I used altenew ruffled flowers stamp and die bundle

To stamp and Die cut the image.

This amazing sentiment is from  Fancy Frames Stamp Set and I stamped it with on the deembossed vellum.





For the last card


I colored some flower and leaves images with Altenew watercolor pan


I used  Altenew garden treasure stamp set and  some other small images from  Altenew remember this stamp set Altenew Beautiful Day Stamp Set to create this  flower heart.. For the heart and its size I used Altenew flowing hearts stencil,  Then Adding some pinkish color around it.

I stamped the sentiment with Altenew permenent black ink over accete paper and placed them over the card.
