TODAYS PROJECTS

There is a new stamp set called Watercolor Blooms. It is a beautiful set with lots of little images to create amazing cards.

Altenew

I stamped the blooms and leaves all over a white card base to create this background.  Next, I scored some lines to give a little embossing.  I added the panel to a black card base.  Using the Hugs and Hello dies, I added the hello to the card front and then finished off the card with some clear drops.

The next new set is called Ornamental Bliss...

Altenew

First, I lined up the outline stamp in my Misti and then removed it, stamping only the colored layers.  It was so easy to line up and creates the most fun colorful images.  I used the coordinating dies to cut out the panel and then popped them up on a color coordinating card base.

Check out this new work mat from Altenew....



  My favorite part is the outline in the center of the mat where you can line up an A2 sized card horizontal or vertical.  The mat measures 18" x  24" but measures on 16" x 22" on the grid lines.  They are also lined out in 1/4" markings which is super helpful.  It's also self healing which is so nice bc you can't see any cuts you make into the mat.
It is also reversible with a black side and a light gray side.
