Video : Cards 4 Men – Inktense Doggie Treat!

Hiya, today I have a fun card to share in my Cards 4 Men series.  I love the finished look of this card but I realized one thing today, I’m not real good at waiting for ink to dry….   I know, I know, take a breath and just wait!

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

In my usual style for a man’s card today, I kept it bright, clean and simple…

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!

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 : MISTI Creative Corners – Stamping a Background with Scrapbook Boutique!

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.
