Here’s how I created this card:

  1. Die cut the card base using Neat & Tangled Scalloped die.
  2. Use the Misti to stamp the pears and the sentiment at the same time.
  3. Color the pears using Tombow Recycled Color Pencils.

Done! Talk about fast, that was 1-2-3!

Altenew May 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s May 2018 Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing all of the new Stamps and Dies.  If you arrived here from the talented Laurie Willison blog, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!

Take a look at my 8 x 8 scrapbook chipboard layout:

Main Squeeze

I love Altenew new Main Squeeze stamp set. It is perfect for my recent mishap at work. My coworker dropped a table. She asked another coworker and myself to help her pick it.  It’s a heavy steel table. While we were picking it up, the other coworker didn’t have a grip on it and let it go on my foot. Such luck, right?! The top of my left foot is fractured.

This stamp set reminds me to really look at the good in this painful situation.  I get to stay home and craft more, LOL!!!

Here’s how I created this chipboard layout:

Pick a patterned paper from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection Kit and adhere it to the 8 x 8 piece of We R Memory Keepers Cinch Chipboard using Altenew Glue Tape.

Stamp the medium lemon randomly on the patterned paper using Altenew Embossing Ink.

Translucent Pearl embossing powder

Stamp the one of the sentiments on the picture using Stazon Ink.

Main Squeeze

Sprinkle Altenew Translucent Pearl Embossing Powder over the stamped image, then heat set it.

Die cut Altenew Fine Alphabet Die Set out of black cardstock for the layout title.

Fine Alphabet die set

Using a ruler, adhere the title to the layout using Tombow Mono Liquid Glue.

Since the die set doesn’t come with punctuation marks, use the question mark from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection Puffy Stickers.

Randomly place thread on the layout and adhere the photo on top.

Add a couple of enamel dots for additional texture.

 

Use We R Memory Keepers Typecast to add journaling to the layout.

Main Squeeze

Adhere the journaling block to the layout and done!

Let’s take another look:

How to Create Texture Using a Die Cut

Hello everyone!! I’m here today to show you how to create texture using a die cut from Technique Tuesday By the Numbers Crafting Die.

Let’s take a look:

I love this By the Numbers die! It’s bold and full of space in between the numbers. Creating this card was simple.

Here’s how:

Simple die cut the numbers die 3 times out of white cardstock.

Then cut a 4th piece out of We R Memory Keepers Urban Chic patterned paper.  Adhere them all together using Tombow Mono Liquid Adhesive.

Cut the Neenah Solar White card base to 4.25 by 11 scored at 5.5.

Cut a second piece of the same Urban Chic patterned paper to 4.25 by 5.5 and adhere it to the top of the card base.

Line the die cut numbers strips with the stripes on the card base and adhere.

Beautiful texture!

To finish the card off, stamp the sentiment from Technique Tuesday Flowers For Mom stamp set inside using Versamark Ink.

Sprinkle Altenew Pure White Embossing Power on top and heat set it.

Flowers for mom stamp set

The font for this sentiment is my favorite.  It’s bouncy and playful.  It goes will with the front of the card.

Super quick and easy.

What do you think? Will you try adding some texture to your card front? I would love to see what you create!

Altenew January 2018 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s January 2018 Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the all of the new Dies.  If you’ve arrived here from the talented Galina Filippenko blog, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!

Take a look at my Scrapbook Layout:

Alpha Die

Back in December, I went to a Whole Food for lunch during a workshop I participated in Brooklyn.  It was the closest place to eat so why not.  I first stopped at the salad bar but thought it was to cold outside to eat salad.  I notice they had a soup bar so I shared out a bowl of chicken noodle soup.  I wan’t happy about it but there wasn’t anything I could do until I saw the Pop-Up Ramon Bar.

Right away I thought yes, this is going to be so good.  I looked at the price and saw that the veggie soup was $8.  Great, I can swing that.  I asked for extra bean spouts and onions.  The chief fixed me a nice soup.  He handed me the soup and I walked to the counter.

The lady said $33.96, I almost went to the bathroom on myself.  WHAT did you say? $33.96 for a soup? I played it cool and pulled out my credit card and paid for this meal that should’ve cost me no more then $10.

Despite the huge price tag, this meal was good. LOL!!!

For this layout, I’m using the new Simple Alpha Die!!  The shape of these letters are perfect for scrapbooking.  They create an amazing title which is what I created above.

Here’s how I created this Scrapbook Layout:

I used Altenew’s Mini Blossom Die and a piece of scrapbook paper from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection to cut out all of the letters for the title.

Alpha Die

I used my We R Memory Keepers Typewriter to type the smaller title.

 

Alpha Die

I secured each letter to the base page with foam tape so that they are raised higher then the photos.

Super easy and fun!!

Using Deco Foil and Die Cuts

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with a super easy card using Deco Foil and Die Cuts!

While I was at Creativiation in January, my friends from Thermoweb gave me a couple of the new Watercolor Deco Foil!! I have to say they are so pretty!! I haven’t had a chance to play with them until now.

Take a look at a picture I posted on Instagram when I came back:

Aren’t these colors pretty?  Here are the names:

  1. Deco Foil Transfer Sheets Amber Watercolor
  2. Deco Foil Transfer Sheets Summer Rainbow Watercolor
  3. Deco Foil Transfer Sheets Amethyst Watercolor
  4. Deco Foil Transfer Sheets Lapis Watercolor
  5. Deco Foil Transfer Sheets Emerald Watercolor

Since its St. Patrick’s Day, I figured today is the best time to use the Emerald Watercolor Deco Foil!

Take a look at my card:

I love the watercolor effect this foil gives off.

Here is how I created this card:

  1. I measured the Simon Says Stamp Lucky To Know You die so that I could measure the Deco Foil Peel n Stick Toner Sheets and theEmerald Watercolor Deco Foil.
  2. I placed the Emerald Watercolor Deco Foil on top of the Deco Foil Peel n Stick Toner Sheet and ran it through my laminator.
  3. Once the sheet comes out of the laminator, die cut the foil sheet.
  4. Since the toner sheet is a peal and stick, all you have to do is adhere it to the black cardstock.

Take a closer look:

Nice and easy. Using Deco Foil and Die Cuts are a fun way to make a quick card in no time.

What do you think?  I would love to hear from you below!

What’s even better is a SALE!!!

Thermoweb is celebrating National Craft Month and they are doing a Ultimate Deco Foil Giveaway!!

Plus you get 15% off and free shipping all month long on orders $15.00 or more.

Now that is awesome!!  Its time to shock up on all of your favorite Deco Foil products!

I’m going to pick up the Deco Foil Transfer Gel!  I was this gel in action at Creativation.  Its a must have.
