2021 Pantone Colors Hello Card

Hello and welcome! I've been taking classes over at Altenew.com and the inspiration cards are fabulous! This lesson used the Watercolor Wonders stamp set and I thought it might be nice to try using colors inspired by this years Pantone colors (which are yellow and gray).


The base image is all one layer with the Fancy Hello die on top. I added some tiny Antique Gold Sequins from Altenew to the the flowers. I love that the sequins have several different sizes of sequins in the bottle. I've never had sequins this small and they were perfect for the centers of the flowers.





Supplies Used:

Altenew Stamp Sets -  Watercolor Wonders, Paint-a-Flower: Poppy (subsentiment)

Altenew Inks - Morning Frost, Evening Gray, Lava Rock, Fresh Lemon, Maple Yellow, Honey Drizzle, Jet Black

Sentiment - Fancy Hello Die

Embellishments: Altenew Antique Gold Sequins

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hello Card with Vintage Roses

Hello and welcome! This Vintage Roses stamp set from Altenew was the very first layering stamp set I purchased many years ago and it's still my favorite. The beautiful, realistic images you get by layering images on top of one another with different colors is stunning. The inspiration for this card came from the All About Layering class over at Altenew.com


I used the coordinating die set to cut out my flowers so I could layer them. I had a lot of fun making a whole bunch in different color combinations. I saved the extras for future cards.



Supplies Used:

Cardstock: Neenah Solar White

Altenew Stamp Sets - Vintage Roses, Super Script

Altenew Inks - Frosty Pink, Coral Berry, Ruby Red, Buttercream, Warm Sunshine, Caramel Toffee, Paper Bag, Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, Evergreen, Jet Black

Embellishments - Altenew Enamel Dots (Red Cosmos)

You Are Fabulously Perfect Friendship Card

Hello and welcome! I'm continuing with the All About Layering class over at Altenew.com and today's lesson used this Painted Flowers set. I don't have the matching dies for the flowers but they were easy enough to fussy cut so I could layer them into little bouquets at the corners. 


The sentiment came from the Amazing Things stamp set and I used some Metallic Shimmer Ink spray (Warm Sunshine) along with one of the blue inks I stamped with to add some splatters to the center of the card.

Supplies Used:

Altenew Stamp Sets - Painted Flowers, Amazing Things

Altenew Inks - Jet Black, Carribean Sky, Persian Blue, Sapphire, Grass Field, Shadow Creek

Embellishments - Altenew Warm Sunshine Metallic Shimmer Ink

It's a little busier than the class card but hey, I had to work in the whole rainbow ...lol.

Altenew Inks - Ultraviolet, Hydrangea, Azurite, Eastern Sky, Teal Cove, Aqualicious, Shadow Creek, Green Fields, Honey Drizzle, Maple Yellow, Marigold, Snapdragon, Rubellite, Pinkalicious
