Altenew inspiration Take 2

I’m back again today for the same challenge as last post.  It’s this picture!  I just love it!

Here it is again. The February Inspiration challenge by Altenew


So today I have another card that is inspired by it. It’s more on the fancy side!


In my last post, I shared a picture of the place we stopped in Florida to snap some pics of the amazing flowers on this building.  Here is another picture


So you can see why I couldn’t get enough of this challenge and had to play with it twice!  With the extra bit of elaborate style, this card captures the feeling of this picture.


Again, I just love this Painted Flowers stamp set and dies by Altenew!  I also used this beautiful Prayers set by Hero Arts for the sentiment.


I clear embossed the die cut image on black paper and mounted it on black foam for a thick look.


Overall, I’m sure you can tell I just LOVED these flowers in Florida, LOVED how the Altenew challenge reminded me of them and LOVED playing with Painted Flowers to recreate the feeling of both.

Have a happy day!


Altenew inspiration

I LOVED the picture that Altenew used for their Inspiration Challenge!


Not only because it’s beautiful as can be – but because it reminds me of a memory I have in my favorite place – Southwest Florida.  I had my husband stop in front of this building just so I could get out for a picture because the flowers were so gorgeous!!


So even though it’s been an incredibly busy month, I couldn’t let the month end without participating in this Inspiration Challenge with Altenew!

I’ve actually made two cards for this challenge because my inspiration was overflowing.  Today is card one and is on the simpler side of card design.


I used the beautiful Altenew stamp set and dies, Painted Flowers.  I stamped them on vellum and colored the back side with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  After cutting them out and carefully adhering them, they added the delicate touch I wanted.


The cover-up die background is by My Favorite Things as is the sentiment.


My next card uses the same stamp set and color scheme but is has much more detail.  I can’t wait to share on Monday morning!

Stamping love!
