Altenew Pine Tree


Hi all,

This card has been made using the Altenew pine tree stamp: Its quite a small stamp approx 2  inches, so I layered one stamp down and masked the tree and built it up to be a little taller, I did a second generation stamping in the background, then applied a circle mask and applied  stormy sky and faded jeans distress inks using the brush technique, I going to do more of this design using other coloured dye inks and will add them to this post later.

Until  my next post "Carry on Crafting folks!"

Cool it down! ; Christmas Robins

Hi Everyone.

What a warm beautiful day it is here in Nottingham!  This Card was already planned for my Chat and craft Class today and I'm feeling rather amused that it is probably the warmest day of the year and we're making a Christmas A4 stepper card !
The bauble ornament was a free gift from a craft magazine i bought some while ago, its a Desire one!  magazine, the robins are coloured with pro markers and are cut out from a craft UK stamp set, the die cut snowflakes are from spellbinders.  i have snipped into a snowflakes frame die from memory box to create the borders, the string and bows are also a memory box die. the snowy background has been stamped in versmark and emboss with white embossing powder.

The season greetings sentiment is taken from tonic cracker die set. stickle glitter glue to give it all some festive sparkle.

Off now to create some more lovely cards with my craft group.
enjoy the rest of this lovely Sunday, sunny day!

until my next post "carry on crafting folks!"

Altenew: Its a Beautiful day ! same but different

Hello everyone,  Its another Bank Holiday here without the sunshine,  Not very bright pictures but its getting quite late and dull here. Today I didn't have a chat and craft class so decided to have a play with my new favourite stamps Build a flower set by ALTENEW, I set myself a challenge to use the same ingredients and make 2 different cards! I'm quite happy with the end results and thought id share them with you for some inspiration.

I've used shades of brown dye ink for the sepia look to the flower and leaf  images, leaf die, stitched triangle die, twine and background paper, finishing the card with "Just because"  sentiment.

Enjoy the rest of the Bank Holiday weekend and Happy Crafting Folks!
