Altenew

Featuring Altenew products

Have a cupcake or two!

Hi there!

The theme for this week’s Less is More challenge is sweet things/one layer card. A perfect opportunity for me to use my Altenew cupcake layering stamps. They line up so easily. I had a lot of fun playing with different colour combos before deciding on this one for my card!

Anyway, I added a few splatters from my Twinkling H2Os and also added shimmer to the cupcake using my trusty Nuvo aqua shimmer pen!

Thanks for looking!

Sunset Cityscape

Hi everyone!

I’ve had the Altenew Cityscape dies on my wishlist since they were released and I finally bought them last week. They are as fabulous as I’d hoped!

I used a photo of a city skyline at sunset to help me with the ink blending – I wanted to show how the setting sun was reflected in parts of the buildings. It took a little while to make this card as I had to be quite precise with the blending but I am quite happy with how it turned out in the end!

Thanks for looking!

Sending Sunshine

Hello everyone!

The theme for this week’s Less is More challenge is ‘spots and stripes’ and it’s time for the dreaded one-layer card!

Actually, I quite enjoy making one-layer cards…. but this time it was VERY DIFFICULT not to add some sequins!

I used a fishtail die to create a mask and then did some ink blending and stencilling to create the image. I added a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp to finish it off!

Thanks for stopping by!

Miss You

Hi there!

For today’s card I chose an older stamp from Penny Black together with an Altenew sentiment. I coloured the image stamp with distress markers and then spritzed it with a little water before stamping on to watercolour paper.

This was a super fast card to make, although I couldn’t resist adding a few sequins to this one as well!

I’m entering this into the current Case This Sketch challenge.

Happy Spring!

Hi there!

The daffodils are gradually being replaced by tulips in my part of the world and today I saw some beautiful tulips in Borde Hill Gardens which inspired me to make this card using a beautiful Memory Box die. The stamp is by Simon Says Stamp and I also used a new Altenew Stencil to add some interest to the base card.
