Card 5: Simon Says Monday Challenge – Add Sparkle and Simon Says Tuesday Challenge – Use Dies

I’m still stuck on the lovely blues and Altenew’s Layered Floral Cover die A from my previous cards and here is my last card for this week’s Simon Says challenges.  Simon Says has a Monday Challenge to add sparkle and a Wednesday Challenge to use dies to your project.

The stencil I made from Altenew’s Layered Floral Cover Die A to make my last card was cut apart to make this card.   Gotta love when you can use one item to make two cards!  I used wink of Stella on the sentiment die cut along with some Nuvo drops to add some sparkly to the card.  The sentiment is die cut from both the sapphire and blueberry cardstock.

Hope you enjoy!  Supplies are listed below.  Happy crafting!

Simon Says Monday Challenge – Add Sparkle and Simon Says Tuesday Challenge – Use Dies

I’m still stuck on the lovely blues and Altenew’s Layered Floral Cover die A from my previous cards and made two more cards for this week’s Simon Says challenges.  Simon Says has a Monday Challenge to add sparkle and a Wednesday Challenge to use dies to your project.

I used Altenew’s Layered Floral Cover Die A to make a stencil and sponged color onto the white panel similar to the previous card.  I used wink of Stella on the sentiment die cut and glossy accents along with some sequins to add sparkly to the card.

Hope you enjoy!  Supplies are listed below.  Happy crafting!

July 2018 Altenew Inspiration Challenge – Card 5, Simon Says Monday Challenge – Add Sparkle, and Simon Says Tuesday Challenge – Use Dies

How about another card for 3 challenges?  I am still focused on this month’s Altenew Inspiration Challenge, and already made four cards for it.  The color inspiration is shown below and has soothing colors.  This week, Simon Says has a Monday Challenge to add sparkle and a Wednesday Challenge to use dies to your project.

This time I used Altenew’s Layered Floral Cover Die A to make a stencil and sponged color onto the white panel.  This is just one of several cards I made using this die set.  I used Simon Says’ Big Thanks die again…..love the script and size of this die.  I went back to using spray mist to add some sparkle to the card.  If you are wondering how come there are two white cardstock listed, I found recollections cardstock doesn’t take ink as well as Neenah so I tend to use the Recollections cardstock for card bases since it’s heavy weight but not for coloring or stamping.

Hope you enjoy!  Supplies are listed below.  Happy crafting!

I used the remaining pieces from my previous card using Altenew’s Layered Floral Cover Dies A and B.  This is just one of several cards I made using this die set.  I colored the white cut outs with Copics to give them some dimension.  I picked up the amethyst color at the base of the petals with the underlying layer for the Thanks die cut.  I used tiny moonshine sequins to add the sparkle to the card along with the embossed sentiment.  The sequins are like a sprinkling of diamonds across the card.  Hope you enjoy!  Supplies are listed below.  Happy crafting!

I used Altenew’s Layered Floral Cover Die A and B for my card.  This is just one of several cards I made using this die set.  This one is my favorite but it was fun to see what I could do with the dies and pieces cut from the dies.  Love the overall sparkle that the mist gives the card.  Hope you enjoy!  Supplies are listed below.  Happy crafting!

I used Painted Flowers stamp set from Altenew for both of the cards.  It was fun to see how I could tweak the card layout using the same stamps and inks.  I like this card better than the first.  Hope you enjoy!  Supplies are listed below.  Happy crafting!
