Sewn with Love by Altenew


Hello everyone!!  Today we are making some elegant Mother's Day cards with Altenew's Sewn with Love.  This set is just magical and comes together easily and beautifully!  When setting yourself up to use this stamp set, all you have to do is get your colors prepared and ready.  If you are staying monochromatic, you will need 2 sets of colors; one for the flower bud and one for the stem.  A stamping tool really does help for this type of set because you can fiddle with it to get it lined up perfectly before committing.  One thing I noticed was that you really have to get directly over the image as you are laying it down so that the pieces are lined up exactly.
I decided to do multiple cards because I had all of the supplies out and it would save time in the end.  Once I stamped out all of my beautiful flowers, I cut them each down a little differently so that I could have some fun with variation.  One of the buds I cut out with a heart die and gave that dimension by putting some fun foam behind it.  Another I cut down with a labeling die I had in my stash and the last one I just used a Lawn Fawn Rectangle Stitched die to cut down and mat on some gorgeous mauve cardstock.  I put my cards together using Nuvo Glue and Ad Tech tape runner and then finished them off with a silver bow and some embellishments to make them pop!


Thank you so much for joining us today!  Have a wonderful, crafty, day!!

See-through Circle Card with Lawn Fawn's Slow Down and Enjoy by Mary Polanco

Hello everyone!  I'm so glad you are crafting with us as we have a blast with this super easy, but WOW card!  Today's card features Lawn Fawn's Slow Down and Enjoy Stamps.  I started off the card by stamping and coloring the elephant from the Lawn Fawn Slow Down and Enjoy stamp set. I used my Spectrum Noir Markers to color them in both warm greys and cool greys.  (I'm saving the warm grey elephant for a future project).
Once my coloring was complete, I worked on the background and made it as simple as I could.   First I ink blended Distress Oxide in Worn Lipstick to get an ombre look.  Then I put a Hero Arts Stencil over it to get a tone on tone look.  Lastly, I spritzed the panel with water to get a more distressed look.  Once complete I used a circle die to cut through the inked up panel as well as the Neenah Solar White 110 lb cardstock.
I placed the front and back of my elephant together using foam dots and nestled him into the circle.  I finished off the card by …
