Altenew August 2022 Inspiration Challenge

Hi Everyone, hope you are all having a good week. I would like to share a card with you that I am entering into the Altenew August 2022 Inspiration Challenge.



This is definitely not one of my colour combinations I will go for first when creating a card, but I was surprised how well it turned out. I have accomplish beautiful rich colours.   

I first stamped the Altenew Build-A-Flower Laelia Leaf Stamp randomly on white cardstock using Antique Linen Oxide Distress Ink.

I then stamped the Altenew Build-A-Flower Laelia Flower Stamp onto blending cardstock and coloured it with Copic Sketch Markers.

Following from that I die-cut the Laelia Flower Image with the Altenew Build-A-Flower Laelia Die and adhered it onto the card front using 3D foam dots.

I stamped a sentiment onto the card front and added Nuvo Crystal Drops to finish.

Material list:

  • Altenew Build-A-Flower Laelia Stamp and Die Set

Lavender Note Holder - Couture Creations

Hi Everyone, Anet here today and welcome to my inspiration post. 

If you wondered how to take your beautiful Alcohol Ink Background a step further, then I just have a wonderful creative technique for you. I made a Note Holder with the Alcohol Ink Background and also used the new Lavender Love Collection from Couture Creations.




Step by Step Instructions:

My video tutorial below will show you how to use the Embossing Technique with your Alcohol Ink Background to let it stand out even more.



Are you ready to learn how to use the 
Alcohol Ink Background Embossing Technique
Grab a cuppa and just click the video link.



I found the inspiration from Tiffany Solorio.

I first trimmed Jungle Cardstock to 4 1/2" x 11" and score it at 5 1/2" to create the note holder base.

For the stand I trimmed Jungle Cardstock to 4" x 4 1/2" and score it at the 4" side at 1/2" and 2". I then turned it and score it again at 1/2". Fold it in half, then fold 1/2" flaps back (looks like a "w") and adhere the stand along the inside edges of the tent (middle fold is up).


I then trimmed the Alcohol Ink Background to 4" x 5". I used Plum, Verdant and Apple Golden Age Alcohol Ink to create the background. Follow my video tutorial above where I show you how to use the Embossing Technique on your Alcohol Ink Background. Video Link.


For the Note Pocket a trimmed Jungle Cardstock to 5 7/8" x 3" and score it at the 5 7/8" side at 1/2" and 7/8" turned it and score it again at 1/2" and 7/8".

On the 3" side I scored it once at 1/2" and 7/8". I trimmed the Alcohol Ink Background to 2" x 3 7/8" and adhered it onto the back of the note holder.


I then trimmed Jungle Cardstock to 3" x 4" and adhered it onto the front of the note holder.

I die-cut Royal Midnight and Jungle Cardstock with the Lavender Love Garden Frame Die and adhered it onto the front and back of the note holder using 3D foam dots and All Purpose Art Glue.


I then die-cut Mirror Board Cardstock with the Lavender Love Garden Frame Dies and adhere it onto the front of the note holder using 3D foam dots to finish.

Peony Gift Box and Card - Couture Creations

Hi Everyone, Anet here today and welcome to my inspiration post. 

I made a Gift Box and Card using the Vintage Blooms Collection from Couture Creations. I coloured the Peony Image with the Twin Tip Alcohol Ink Markers.




I found the inspiration from Julie - Stampin' Gala. I did not follow her measurements and instead made my own box to fit a hand cream gift.

Step by Step Instructions:

Card

I first trimmed Garnet Cardstock to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4" and fold to create a card base.

I then cut the following cardstock layers:
  • Smooth White Cardstock to 4 5/8" x 3 3/8" and adhered it onto the card front using 3D foam dots.
  • Garnet Cardstock to 4 1/2" x 3 1/4" and layer it onto the card front.
  • Black Cardstock to 4 1/8" x 2 7/8" and layer it onto the card front.
  • Blending Card to 4" x 2 3/4". 
I stamped the Peony Stamp randomly onto the Blending Card using the Colour Outline Ink Pad Soft Black and coloured it with the Twin Tip Alcohol Ink Markers.


Twin Tip Alcohol Ink Markers Combinations:

Peony: 3935, 106, 123, 206, 193, 220, 188
Leaves: 2288, 358, 350

I then stamped a Thank You Sentiment, heat emboss it and added some gemstones All Purpose Art Glue.

I cut Gold Mirror Board to 1/4" x 4" and adhered it onto card front.

Box

My video tutorial below will show you how to create the fabulous Peony Gift Box.

I then trimmed black cardstock to 6 3/8" x 2 1/4" and adhered it onto the box using Tacky Glue.

I cut Blending Card to 2" x 6 1/8, stamped the Peony Stamp randomly onto the Card using the Colour Outline Ink Pad Soft Black and coloured it with the Twin Tip Alcohol Ink Markers.


Twin Tip Alcohol Ink Markers Combinations:

Peony: 3935, 106, 123, 206, 193, 220, 188
Leaves: 2288, 358, 350

I then stamped a Thank You Sentiment, heat emboss it and added some gemstones using the All Purpose Art Glue.

To finish I cut Gold Mirror Board to 1/4" x 2" and adhered it onto box.

I then used the Flourish & Thrive Box Leaf Waxflowers Stencil, Blending Brush and Platinum White Pigment Ink on the Mystique Cardstock. To prevent the cardstock of moving I used the All-In-One Magnetic Art Work Station.


I then stamped the Vintage Blooms Daffodils Stamp onto Blending Card using the Colour Outline Ink Pad Soft Black and coloured it with the Twin Tip Alcohol Ink Markers.


Twin Tip Alcohol Ink Markers Combinations:

I fussy-cut the stamped image with the Couture Creations Small General Purpose Scissor and adhere it onto the gift bag using 3D foam dots.

I then die-cut Silver Mirror Board with the Homely Florals Love and Smile Butterfly and Leave Dies and adhere it onto the gift bag using 3D foam dots.


I stamped the Flourish & Thrive Christmas Bells Sentiment Stamp onto Mystique Cardstock and heat embossed it.
