Video : Altenew Focus Post – Cake Love!

I am so excited to be here today celebrating Altenew’s newest release with Cake….  Cake Love that is!  This focus post features the Cake Love stamp set and that means 3 cards for inspiration and one video too…   just scroll a little further for that one.

Altenew - Cake Love - Bold Alphabet Die - New Day Card Kit (card) 1 copy

My first card (and probably my fave) was created with the Bold Alphabet dies and some sweet design paper from the New Day Card Kit.

I also used the Altenew Shimmer Ink Sprays for a quick spritzy background and the new Pure White Embossing Powder for the sentiment.

My second card was also clean & simple, I embossed my images with the Antique Gold embossing powder before I watercoloured them with some Gansai Tambi paints.

The Pale Gray cardstock helped to lift the front hand gold dotted panel.  The flowers are from the Beautiful Day stamp set and I grounded the image with a stamp from the Watercolor Frames stamp set.

For my final card I stamped a ‘Two-Tone’ Halftone Heart in the background and coloured the image with Altenew’s Artist Markers, then it was really easy to use the coordinating die to cut it out.

I decided that a sentiment from the Layered Cupcakes set would suit as well as some ‘sparklers’ created from the Wood Pallet Background stamp set.  I have a video showing how this card came together,

You can see my video here or Watch it in HD at Youtube.
