Altenew - Build-A-Flower Magnolia - Calligraphy Alpha - Lostinpaper (card video) 1 copy

This month Altenew is introducing Build-A-Flower: Magnolia.  On the 15th of every month a new flower set is released and each set offers a 6×8 stamp set with a coordinating die so you can easily create your projects (it is only available as a set, not as individual products).  Isn’t this Magnolia beautiful!

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

I decided to stamp out the word ‘you’ with the Calligraphy Alpha stamp set, one of the easiest alpha sets I’ve ever used (it’s so so easy to line up the letters, I love it)!

Video : Going Retro with MFT for Scrapbook Boutique!

I’ve been wanting to use this background technique again for a while now and decided that today was the day as I have a post up at Scrapbook Boutique Blog!  I thought it would be fun to ‘Retro’ these fun owls from MFT and add a sweet combo of colours from Altenew.

Video : Stamping a Sentiment Background with Altenew!

I have a quick and easy card to share at the Altenew Blog today.  I decided it would be fun to create my own sentiment background using almost a rainbow of colours, I thought this would make a fun kids or teen card.

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

I stamped out the Congrats sentiments with the Altenew Crisp Dye Inks and then coloured some of the air benders using the Altenew Artist Markers.  I am loving the bright cheery feel!

Altenew - Best Dad - Inline Alpha Die - Lostinpaper (card video) 1 copy

This fab cup and sentiment is from the Best Dad Stamp set and I thought that some of Altenew’s Birch Wood would look great with the Inline Alpha die cut words, and give it that masculine look!

I decided to film as I created today,

Some Things Really Do Get Better with Age!

Lostinpaper - Penny Black - Fun Time Girls - Birthday Love (card) 1

I have a quick card to share today and I kept it clean & simple.  Although I did consider some design paper for the background, but everything I tried just didn’t do it for me, so she is boldly sitting on her own direct on the card front, love her style!

Lostinpaper - Penny Black - Fun Time Girls - Birthday Love (card) 1

Things really do get better with age and somehow I think this Penny Black girl really knows how to party, wouldn’t you agree!
