I wanted to create a card with a traditional Christmas color combo, green and red, but not necessarily just for a holiday card.
Good morning! Today I will be highlighting winter-themed projects shared by you – our fans and customers – from Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and our Flickr group. Please share your projects with us via these platforms, and YOU might be part of our next feature!

Hey and Happy Friday! It’s Aimes here today showing you a fun way to get even more from your wonderful Altenew supplies by using a non-holiday products (the fun Geometric Flowers Stamp Set ) to create a card for the season.
I’ve used a design from the Geometric Flowers stamp set to stamp a border around the sentiment. I like to think that it creates a modern-style poinsettia for the season! In order to stamp them equally around the panel, I measured the panel to fit the width of one full stamp and two halves. Then it was a case of marking the midpoint of each side and stamping the central flowers. The remaining flowers (or should that be poinsettias?) then fitted into each corner perfectly. :)
For a quick and easy option, you could stamp the co-ordinating solid stamp that comes with the set to colour the flowers. However, I wanted to colour mine with markers so I started with a light shade of red on the outer petals and worked towards a darker shade in the centre for dimension. The sentiment is from the Modern Deer stamp set. I cut the stamp in half to stamp it in a two-line format. Sometimes it’s good to administer a little surgery to your stamps. ;)
I can’t resist adding a touch of sparkle to my designs – especially ones for the season! So I created my own glitter cardstock by covering the edges of a panel with Altenew’s gold glitter tape. Easy peasy!
This is one of many Christmas cards that I have to make so given that it’s December already, I better get a move on! I hope that today’s card inspires you to look at the fun ways you can use a your stash for your festive cards. It’s always a bonus to stretch your stamping stash in my book!
Hi, it’s Therese and today I decided to create a bright and cheerful window card using the Simple Flowers stamp set.
After masking off the centre circle I stamped the images with Altenew Crisp Dye Inks and to add depth I simply used two different shades of Prismacolor pencils in very similar colours to the stamped flowers. The solid images from the Simple Flowers stamp set make it perfect for this easy shading technique. My sentiment was white heat embossed from the Geometric Flowers stamp set onto the Dark Gray Altenew Cardstock.
I just love the bright funky flowers from this set and have linked the video below so you can watch the process on how it all came together.

Thanks so much for your visit today!
Hi there! Laura here and today I have a colorful project to share featuring the Geometric Flowers stamp set.I stamped and embossed one of the images from Geometric Flowers repeatedly forming a large spiral design.
Then I blended Coral Berry, Warm Sunshine, Volcano Lake, Caribbean Sky & Midnight Violet over the embossed design.
Here’s a video to show you how I created this card.
I hope you enjoyed today’s video tutorial! Thanks so much for stopping by!
