Hi, Debby here. I’m very much enjoying using my colored pencils at the moment. Sometimes I use them to color a whole image, sometimes just to add a few details to a watercolor. For today’s card I’m accenting stamped images with colored pencils.
Beautiful Day Stamp Set has to be up there as one of my all time favorite Altenew sets! I love this set as it has beautiful leaves and sprigs which I always think look nice just lightly stamped. You also have the lovely flower which is just the right size to make an impact without overpowering everything else. I stamped three sets of leaves, two sprigs and one flower in Silver Stone crisp ink and then die cut with their matching dies. I then turned to my Altenew inks to give a base layer of detail. For the lines of the leaves I used Moss and Soft Lilac for the flower.
I used Faber Castell pencils to accent the stamped images. For the leaves, I just added light green over the main body of the leaf with a few dark green flicks here and there. I spent more time on the flower and with Kathy Racoosin and her amazing coloring skills in mind, combined purples, yellows, blues and greys.
I kept the rest of the card clean and simple. On a rectangle of white card I stamped the Hello from Amazing You Stamp Set in clear embossing ink. So that it would stand out nicely from the white, I embossed with an Antique Gold powder. I gathered the flower and leaves around the white panel and then adhered them to a kraft panel on a white card base.
Hello Everyone! It’s Aga here today. I’m quickly popping in to share an one layer New Year’s card using two different stamp sets: Beautiful Day Stamp Set and Happy Dreams Stamp Set. I think these two work perfect together!
I started by stamping a bold, black sentiment in the centre of my card, then I curved two sentiment stamps when placing them on the acrylic block and stamped around.
Next, I used a masking technique and covered up the sentiments to stamp my floral cluster around. I chose to use here the following Altenew Crisp Dye Inks: Jet Black, Forest Glades and Puffy Heart. To finish my card I stamped some tiny stars in black.
Thank you for stopping by today! Wishing everyone a Happy New Year and all the best for the new year 2017!
Hello there everyone and happy Monday to you all!
It’s Lydia here with you with my little take on the Altenew Wedding Kit. I was soooo excited when this came through the door as it’s such an awesome kit and the packaging is pretty cool too.
My first wedding stationary set I’m sharing with you uses items you will find in the kit- the only thing I added was a strip of black card, that’s it!
I used one of the templates to print out the invitation and RSVP card onto the beautiful card stock that is included in the kit. The only thing I changed on the template was the indent (which you can do with the tools included).
Once I printed them out I added a bit of masking tape above the writing on the invitation and to the right of the writing on the RVSP.
‘Painted Flowers’ is the stamp set included in the kit and it is so beautiful and versatile, especially for wedding stationary. I stamped the outlines using Jet Black along the edge of the masking tape and added in some of the outline buds and leaves. I then stamped in the solid layers of the flowers using Coral Berry and Ruby Red for one flower and Buttercream and Warm Yellow for the other. All of these inks are included in the set.
When all the stamping was finished I removed the masking tape and added a strip of black card to add more of a defined edge to the images.
For my next set I added in some extras but used the same template I used for the first set, just to show that you can really play with this kit and make it your very own.
So as I said I used the same template only this time after printing with my laser printer I added foiling to the words. Just showing that you can take this as far as you want.
I then used ‘Beautiful Day‘ stamp set and some gold ink to add some images to top and a little to the right side of the invitation and to the bottom right and a little to the left side of the RSVP. When the stamping was complete I covered the writing on both the invitation and RSVP with some scraps of paper and added some splatters of gold ink.
I am absolutely loving this kit …. and feel like I need to renew my vows just so I can send invitations out using it.
Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you like my inspiration using the Altenew Wedding Kit.
Hi there! It’s Flóra here with a 8.5″x11″ scrapbook layout. This time I made a grid design using Altenew inks and Beautiful Day Stamp Set and Die Bundle. I have to admit that one of my favourite embellishments are die cuts. I regularly run out of them so I thought I will create my own for this project.
The first step of the process was to find the matching inks for the the Pinkfresh Studio Felicity collection what I have used for this page. The Rouge Crisp Dye Ink and the Sea Glass Dye Ink was perfect match. Then I created few stamped images with Beautiful Day Stamp Set and then I cut them out with Sizzix and Beautiful Day Die Set.
I added a stamped image to every square and other tiny embellishments like sequins and stickers. I wanted to make the project more interesting so I machine stitched here and there.
The theme of the layout is winter and spring. In the photo are me and my lovely Füli waiting for spring to come. Also the color choice shows this duality. The cold blue reminds of winter and the warm blush reminds of beautiful spring.
I was studying the design of the collection and tried to create matching die cuts in colors and designs as well. The process was a big fun, I am also satisfied with the result.
I hope you like my new scrapbook layout. Thansk for stopping by!
Hi Everyone! It’s Aga here today sharing a card using stamps from the Beautiful Day set and coordinating dies. And this card took me about 10 minutes to make! That’s the advantage of using a stamp positioner and die-cutting machine, they definitely save time and effort.
I simply stamped images from the Beautiful Day set using the Altenew Crisp Dye Inks: Sea Glass, Ocean Waves, Buttercream, Frayed Leaves, Forest Glades, Evergreen and Jet black. Then I ran them through my die cut machine with the coordinating dies.
With my die cuts ready to go, I started to assemble my floral arrangement. For the sentiment I used Dymo label maker. And that’s it, like I said, super quick and easy!
Hope you enjoy it, thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend!
Hello there! Welcome to a brand-new stamp highlight. Today we are directing our attention to probably one of the most loved stamp sets, Beautiful Day!

I’m on a roll this month. This is the second layout I have done that isn’t about my daughter! I’ve been dying to do a layout like this since my very first Design Team box arrived. Altenew makes THE BEST flower stamps. So when I came across the quote “In joy and sadness flowers are our constant friends”, I knew it was the perfect opportunity to justify my fresh flower addiction and a layout.
I used a ton of Altenew Stamps in this Layout – I used the Beautiful Day Stamp Set for the flowers, but choose to use leaf stamps from the Vintage Rose Stamp Set, as they were slightly smaller. I also created a background in the larger frame using the Tiny Hearts Stamp Set.
I think without a doubt this Peony stamp is my favourite. I used the Arctic, Soft Lilac, Lavender Fields and Jet Black ink pads to create the purple Peony. The leaves were stamped in Frayed Leaf and Forest Glades. I also did my own little outline with a fine liner so as to match the flower.
The blue Peony was made with Ocean Waves, Dust, Caribbean Sky and Jet Black. I followed the same process for the leaves in this frame as above and because I am indeed the worlds worst fussy cutter – I used the Beautiful Day Die Set and the Vintage Roses Die Set to cut out my handy work before layering them behind the Crate Frames. I used a pencil to trace the inside of the frame on to my Solar White Cardstock before stamping it with the Tiny Hearts Stamp in Morning Frost. Hostly if the Peony from the Beautiful Day Stamp Set is my favourite stamp. Then Morning Frost would have to be my favourite Ink color.
I typed my quote out on a scrap of Solar White I used to stamp and die cut my flowers. Then glued it in taking care not to cover up all my pretty hearts.
The rest my friends is easy. All the papers came from my off cuts bin. Even the little mason jar was on an off cut from a Dear Lizzy line a few years ago. I love how it balances out the strong purple flower in the photo and the bright blue Peony. I stitched the top and the bottom strips down and scattered some puffy sticker sequins. That’s it. Couldn’t be any easier.
I’ll be back on the weekend with another layout. Not going to lie – it’s probably going to be baby related.
Hello everyone and happy Sunday! I do hope you are all having a great weekend and are having lots of fun.
Today I’m sharing a card made with some beautiful Altenew products. I have to say that Beautiful Day is a huge favourite of mine and it had been a while since I had inked it up so I thought day would be a good day.
I started by stamping the outline images onto watercolour card and then heat embossing in gold. I loosely watercoloured the images using Distress Ink and water, to do this I added clean water to the images and then dropped in colour to the areas that I felt would have more shade using a paint brush. The water helps the ink to blend and bleed giving a awesome shading effect- Altenew Crisp inks can also be used for this technique. Once the watercolour was dry I cut the images out using the coordinating die set.
Although I wanted the card to have a clean look I also wanted something in the background- so for my background I embossed the Dodec Cover Die into a piece of white card. To emboss rather than cut the die I ran it though my die-cutting machine using an embossing mat. The embossing mat is like a piece of rubber, as the rubber has a bit of ‘give’ it doesn’t give the machine enough pressure to cut so embosses the image instead.
To put the card together I attached the embossed piece to the card blank. I then added a strip of white card to break up the background and to have somewhere for my sentiment to sit. I added the watercoloured flower images into place and then added a sentiment from Label Love on top.
Thank you so much for stopping by today I really do hope you enjoyed your visit!
Hope you have a beautiful day and I hope to see you again soon!
