Happy Birthday Little Sister

Happy Birthday Little Sister

I have been trying to master the art of eclipse cards. Today I am sharing a card made for my sister using the Altenew Bold dies.

I initially stamped the card using my W9Plus Pretty Little Peonies and pinks, purples and green Altenew inks. When the ink was dry, the I ligned up the alphabet dies and cut them out. They were then layered on to letters which had been cut from card stock to raise them when they were placed on the card.

I was then able to give my sister a personalised birthday card which she did love.

I am entering the card in the following Challenge:

Love is in the air

Love is in the air

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner and love is in the air, I thought I would share a card with you using a die I recently bought from Simon Says Stamps – Stacked Hearts. I first used Distress Oxides – Pumpkin Pie, Abandoned Coral and Festive Berries to colour card stock. I used the die to cut the coloured card stock, keeping the small hearts for a future project. The heart outlines were infilled with small white hearts coloured with clear Wink of Stella.

I layered this on to checked card stock made by stamping Concord and 9th Plaid Background Stamp with Festive Berries and Pumpkin Pie. The sentiment, stamped with Festive Berries ink was from Altenew.

I would like to enter the card in the following challenges:

To early for Christmas Cards?

When Simon Says Stamps has a challenge using Hero Arts stamps what do you do? Use your favourite christmas stamp. I really love the simplicity of the Let it Snow stamp, where snowmen can be dressed up or down. So, to enter this challenge I stamped the big snowman, cut it out, added a subtle layer of grey around the snowman to add a shadow, then layered the snowman on to the card. An additional scarf was stamped using Distress Ink – Festive Berries, cut out and glued on to the snowman and covered with 3D Gloss Finish to add some depth. A number of circle layers were cut, with one coloured using Festive Berries ink again to bring the card together. Sentiment was stamped again using the Festive Berries ink.

The card is to be entered in the following challenges
