Hello my Friends!
Today I am participating Altenew May 2015 Blog Hop to celebrate the release of Altenew Crisp Inks. You probably just came from my sweet team mate's, Jocelyn's blog, if not please start from the beginning at the Altenew blog and see what other members of Altenew's design team have come up with.
Within this release, Altenew brings a selection of these wonderfully co-ordinating inks with their stamps into their store. I played a bit with Vintage Flowers and Ori Kami set.
I started by cutting the masks for the flowers and adhered them temporarily onto my card stock. Then I stamped the shadow of the branch from Vintage Flowers set with grey dye ink. After that I stamped the branch with Altenew Jet Black Crisp Ink. I removed the masks and stamped the flowers from Vintage Flowers set with Altenew inks. For the pink flowers I used Frosty Pink, Coral Berry and Ruby Red inks. For the yellow flowers I used Buttercream, Warm Sunshine and Caramel Toffee inks. For the butterfly I used Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades and Evergreen inks. I made my own stencil for the black border by die cutting it and I inked it up with Altenew Jet Black Ink. For the tiny stripe of colour, I inked up my card base with Coral Berry, Warm Sunshine and Forest Glades inks. The sentiments are from Ori Kami set and I stamped them with Altenew Jet Black Ink. On the wedding card, I raised up the centre panel with fun foam.
At this point, I'd like share where I got the inspiration for these cards. We celebrated Mother's Day on this past Sunday. My eldest daughter, Inari aged 4, had made this card at her playgroup and I was so impressed! Loved the Asian feel in it and I wanted to make a card or two on my own. Here is her card. Isn't it lovely! Later, I asked how they had made these and my daughter just laughed and giggled.. Then she replied: "with a straw, of course!"
