Peony and waterbeads

Happy Friday! Sharing with  you today a card with the beautiful peony stamp from Altenew, love this set. I stamped the flowers using two tones of yellow and the leaves with two tones of green and I cut it all out. The background is done with the water bead stamp from Deer Red, heat embossed in gold.
I am always looking for different uses of the stamps I many possibilities!
Sentiment is also from Altenew. I used some green to mat the panel and then on a piece of gold mirri board on ivory cardstock. Scored some lines on the right side.
                     Don't  you think this is such an elegant card? 
                                            Till next time, Anja

Good morning, everyone. I loved these papers from Crate Paper's "Little You" Collection and loved that fact that the pale green could be used for either a boy or girl layout. I used Versa Magic "Oasis Green" ink, this new die from MFT for the frame, and some wood heart embellishments from Kaisercraft and some Crystals from Prima.

Here is the Kit.

Have a great week.

D.I.Y. Embellishments

Happy Monday, everyone. I have to confess to something today!!! I am a hoarder! No, I am not the kind of hoarder that you see on T.V. I don't have newspapers and stuff all around the house. But in my Craft Room, I am definitely a hoarder. I have never met an Embellishment or 6 x 6 Paper Pad that I don't like.

Now when you have so much stuff in your Craft Room, every once in a while, you have to clean/organize/purge. I have found that a great way to use up some of your stuff is to create your own embellishments. You see all kinds of videos on this technique on You Tube.

So, I have created 10 DIY Embellishments that will be offered as a class in August. These creations can be used for card-making or for scrapbooking. Watch our blog to see an upcoming date.

I used some paper from several 6 x 6 paper pads including the Plaid papers from Lawn Fawn and Photo Play as well as some embellishments both from our Embellishment Bar at the store and from my own stash. See our website for other 6 x 6 paper pads that we have in the store. (I counted 42 different 6 x 6 pads.) Look under the titles on the left side for Kits and Paper Pads.

Here are the 10 Embellishments that we will be creating in the class. Note: that there will be no kits available for this class. Attendance is necessary to complete all the various techniques that we will be using.

Have a great week!

Peony Bouquet

Good Morning Everyone,

I want to share with you my card that I have been working on.  I love the finish look that you get with the Altenew Peony Bouquet stamp set. It also helps that I used Altenew ink set, Shades of purple. These ink sets are set up that it gives you the four colours  you need to get the layers in the peonies. The sentiment is from Altenew's Super Script set. To cut out the circle I used the Stitched Circle set from My Favourite Things. I love the stitched detail around the circle. Of course I had to add some bling.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.
