Build-a-flower: Carnation and giveaway

13 December 2017

This month's build-a-flower set features a beautiful carnation. The meaning of carnation includes fascination, distinction, and love, and its use in art and decor dates back to ancient Greek and Roman times. With their ruffled appearance and classic beauty, these flowers possess a charm and allure that continues to captivate people around the globe. Alongside the multi-step carnation, we have included two-step leaves, berries, and a cluster of tiny flowers that can be used as filler images for your flower arrangements! The set also includes three kindness sentiments that are great for any occasion.

I love this set and I created two cards with it. I started with a classic design and added some detail by embossing the kraft card base. As I has some leaves left over I thought I'd create a second card. I created a Christmas card turning my leaf into a Christmas tree.

GIVEAWAY 2:

Altenew Marker Release

20 November 2017

Welcome to the Altenew November Marker Release Blog Hop. If you have hopped over from Tammy Tutterow  's blog you are right on track. You can start the hop over on the Altenew Card blog.
Altenew has just released Artist Markers set B and C. They are alcohol based markers perfect for coloring and blending and are a perfect medium for adding color to the Altenew stamps.


I created two cards. I created a background in two different hues: one red/pink and the other blue. I used some marker paper which is smooth and you can blend the colours easily. I coloured and ombre effect background.

For the card below I cut out a cover using the Leaf cover die from Altenew and placed it over my background. Then I stamped and heat embossed a feather from the Golden Feather stamp set and coloured it using the red/pink  markers from set C. For the sentiment I picked a sentiment from the Happy Holiday Stamp set and embossed it with Platinum embossing powder. I also used this powder for the feathers.



For the second card I went with the blue background and added a feather at the bottom using the same techniques as for the one above.

Altenew November 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

8 November 2017


If you have come from Erum Tasneem's  blog  you are right on track.

Today we are releasing 12 stamps and 8 die sets. For this layout I used the Golden Feather and the Snapshots set. I started off with a grey base added two ink colours which I used to create some embellishments (hearts and stars which I cut out by hand). 


My favourite stamp in the snapshots set is the camera. I stamped it and cut it out. I kept the rest of the layout simple so that the photo and the camera stayed the main focal point.


You can see how the layout came together in the video below. This time I didn't have time to do a voice over so it'll be a music video.



There is also a giveaway.

25 days of Christmas Tags

Welcome to the 25 days of Christmas with Altenew and it's design team. This is my first time participating and I am nervous. I had such a hard time making these two tags. I usually create scrapbook layouts and I'm used to 12*12 sized background. A tag is TINY. I kept them simple and I went for "non-traditional" colours. 

If you want to see more inspirational tags just visit In My Creative Opinion (http://inmycreativeopinion.blogspot.ca) or have a look on the Altenew card blog

For the first tag I used the Anemone stamp set from Altenew with some Razzleberry embossing powder and coloured it the Razzleberry crisp ink. The I created a tag from one of the new patterned papers from the Our Family Scrapbook collection and added the flower and sentiment on top.



For my second card I used the Halftone Stars set with some platinum embossing powder and I then blended some pinks inks over the top.



Thanks for stopping by and see you soon.
