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,

This week is MASSIVE, it’s Altenew’s 3rd Anniversary and you already know that they know how to celebrate in style as well as give you the opportunity to WIN too, but more about that later.

Today it’s time for the Card Design Team to hop and we are so lucky to be joined by some incredibly talented papercrafters, you should have arrived here from Jennifer McGuires blog, and she never fails to inspire! (scroll down for the full hop list)

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.

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

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

Here I stamped a Carousel background and heat embossed the sentiment from the Celebrate Stamp Set.

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.
