Howdy from Tulsa!
Today is World Card Making Day 2018! I will be celebrating this beautiful day with a new card blog post using Altenew’s “Perfectly Perfect” stamps and dies. Altenew’s flowers and blooms are to die for, or at least I think so. On to my project for today!
My first photo shows the first steps in my process using “Perfectly Perfect”. I have used the Create-A-Wreath for a few extra leaves and the circle wreath. I cut the circle twice, added Pure Graphite Crisp Ink, and after drying I glued the two together. The leaves were die cut and sprayed with Forest Glades Metallic Shimmer Ink Spray (love these sprays). My stamp’s blooms and leaves were colored with Altenew’s Artist Markers. The blooms with C001 – Buttercream, Y204 – Mango Smoothie, Y205 – Warm Sunshine, Y612 – Caramel Toffee, and Y823 – Paper Bag. The leaves with G702 – Frayed Leaf, G715 – Forest Glades, and G554 – Evergreen.
This next photo shows the glued wreath ring, my background layer flicked with Altenew’s Forest Glades and Caramel Toffee Metallic Shimmer Ink Spray. Like I said before, I love these sprays! The shimmer is unbelievable! Also my finished card base will be 5.5” squared. I used some silver washi tape along the top and left side for a little more interest.
Below you can see the finished project. I decided to add Nuvo Metallic Silver Lining Crystal Drops. The card was a little left side heavy. I added some Indigoblu Unicorn Sparkle to the three drops because I messed up adding them. I really need to use a non-stick mat for my drops. This would allow me to pick and choose the ones I want to use.
In the next few pictures you will see that I finished the center of each flower with the Paper Bag marker and added very small dots with a white gel pen. I also stamped “YOU ARE” with the Crisp Black ink. My banner was completed with Altenew’s clear embossing ink and white embossing powder. The black cardstock was a scrap I found on my desk.
“Perfectly Perfect” will be entered in the following challenges:
