Video: Neat & Tangled Guest Designer – Floral Hearts : Two Ways!

Today I have two more cards using some fun products from Neat & Tangled,  this is my last post as Guest Designer…  I can’t believe how quickly this month has flown by.

My focus today is the Floral Heart stamp set and matching die and the video is a little longer than usual as I filmed both cards, almost in production line style.

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

I had to use the Awesome die again, but this time I made it all gold and shiny!

For the remaining sentiments I used the My Favorite Nut stamp set.

I love that the Floral Heart die can be separated, what a genius idea!

I would just like to say a big Thank You to Neat & Tangled I have thoroughly enjoyed my time as Guest Designer this month!

Today I am very excited to share that I am Guest Designing for Neat & Tangled this month!  They have such a variety of fun unique stamps and dies that it’s very easy to be inspired.

Today I decided to create my own background pattern…   well, actually I decided to make two….

Video : Altenew New Day Card Kit – Wood Veneers!

I’ve been asked to share some ideas on how to use the Altenew New Day Card Kit and in particular using the wood veneers included in the kit.  So I decided to make two cards and I have a video showing you how!

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

I used Altenew Artist Markers to add colour to my projects today.

Here are some of my Altenew faves….

So…  In keeping with the party atmosphere I thought it would be fun to create a fun set of cards using some of the mini stamp sets from Altenew, and these Fair themed images seemed perfect!

Altenew - Carousel - Ferris Wheel - Celebrate - Lostinpaper (card) 1 copy

I used the Splash of Color set to create a bright background for the Carousel and Ferris Wheel images.

The background here was ink blended through the Halftone Stencil and the sentiment was die cut with the Inline Alpha die set.

Altenew - Inline Alpha Die - Bunny Love - Lostinpaper (card) 1 copy

I decided it would be fun to create a ‘faux embossed’ background using die cuts from the Inline Alpha Die set.  This little cutie is all dressed up for a party from Bunny Love and a glittery cupcake from Way Too Sweet.

Every time I looked at the Layered Cityscape Cover Dies I could only see a rainbow of buildings, so I just had to get that out of my system.

Altenew - Layered Cityscape Cover Die A & B - Faux Veneer - Lostinpaper (card) 1 copy

I did ‘stack’ a few of the die cuts on top of each other to add some dimension and the colouring was done with Tombows.

My final card uses the new Altenew New Day Card Kit and this is jam packed full of fun, I decided to create a video showing this kit and the process of making this card (as well as a quick peek at the kit).

Video : Altenew Focus Post – Extra Special!

Today at the Altenew Blog I have a focus post featuring the new Extra Special stamp set. That means three different cards using this set as well as a video which you can find linked below.

For my first card I created a stamped background with the main flower image from the Extra Special stamp set and then for the sentiment I couldn’t help myself but I just had to get out the Bold Alphabet dies (sorry Wida) and I used one of the new cardstocks, this one is the Deep Iris and isn’t it pretty!

and did you see that I had the Ink Sprays out again….. I used Soft Lilac, Lavender Fields and Frayed Leaf to create my background.

For my second card I also used the Halftone Stencil and the Artist Markers to create a more classic ‘Mother’s Day’ design.

My final card (and video) was probably the easiest and funnest, I created a subtle background for the Thank You die which I made all shimmery….  but you can watch the whole process on video if you scroll just a little further on.
