CARDS

There is a new floral set that totally made me smile.  It's called Bride to Be!

Altenew May 2018 Release

To create this card, I added a little bit of ink blending in the background for a slight blue haze.  Then I stamped and die cut the flowers and made a simple grouping using my Press N Seal trick.  (You can check out my video HERE.)  Last, I stamped the sentiment from the Best Mom set.

This next card uses the Garden Silhouette stamp set along with the Fine Alphabet Dies...

Altenew May 2018 Release

To create this card, I stamped the images along the bottom of the card front.  I die cut a large rectangle in the card front so I could pop the center rectangle up on foam tape.  Last, I die cut the word Hello in white card stock and in fun foam so I could add it to the card with some dimension. Clean and simple!

This last card, uses some of the images from Garden Silhouette...

I kept this one simple and stamped the vase and flower on watercolor paper.  I added a little water to the vase and it gave it a really pretty effect.  I added a little shading with a comic along the bottom and then stamped the sentiment in black ink.
