I am just in love with the Never Give Up Stamp! The sentiments are just so heartfelt, unique and gorgeous (so typical of Altenew!). I truly believe this sentiment and can't wait to give this card to a friend in need of a reminder. I masked off a small area and blended some Warm Sunshine, Puffy Heart and Lagoon ink to make a fun tropical look! Seriously, my videos aren't videos these days without making sets so check out the tutorial or subscribe to my channel so you can come back later and watch!
I love encouragement cards because they really make a difference in people's lives and are a kind gesture to show people you are thinking of them. I try to send them out monthly to people who need it. I used the same colours to blend here but instead of stamping in black, I used the Never Give Up Dies to make a mask and blended inside the masks.
The Everything About You Stamp is another great card and can be used for friends and significant others. I just love all three of them – the black on black, ombré ink and rainbow!
Altenew mini ink cube bundles just really take the guess work out of matching shades of colours for layering stamps or doing these ombré effects.
Before moving onto the final project, I just wanted to say that I am obsessed with this adorable Mini Blossom Die Cutting Machine! If anyone has seen my video on me packing my Big Shot to go overseas, you will now see my life getting so much easier with this! It works with Altenew dies and any thin wafer dies from other companies. It is just so tiny and compact – so perfect for crafting on the go! It handles all of my dies under 3″ wide! Not to mention it has earned an adorable little spot on my desk!
Machine size: 6″ x 4 1/2″ plus handle
Cutting plate size: 3″ x 6 1/4″
Product weight: 2 lb 3 oz
My last project is my favourite, honestly no matter how many times I tried to photograph it, it doesn't do it justice. The soft lilac colour is so elegant and subtle and combined with the Silver Stone Grey is so pretty! I think what really makes the card is the fact that after I stamped the flower from the Frosted Garden Bundle along the circle border, I die cut additional flowers to add more texture. Did you know I messed up at the very end stamping the sentiment so I added that big banner across! I thought it was ruined but some clever covering was all that was needed!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
You next stop is May Sukyong Park!
