Altenew Creations:Post 2


Hi,
Im back again today to share some more Altenew creations. In my first Altenew post {Here} i showed a lot of cards using Vintage flowers but today i have a card to show using the Painted Butterflies set.


This is a 5x7 card. I created a panel to go down the centre and stamped my butterflies all over in purples and oranges. I like the bold colours together.
I added it on foam pads to my card as well as a vellum strip down the centre before adding my sentiment.


My second card features another stamp from the Vintage flowers set. For this 5x5 card, i used the branch and the cherry blossoms and created this simple design. The image itself is printed in brown and 2 shades of pink.
The sentiment came from the Painted Butterflies. I simply matted my design onto black.


I hope your enjoying my Altenew makes!
If your enjoying the makes, remember to check my Challenge post for another altenew make.

Altenew Creations

Hello,
Today i have some new cards to share using the Altenew range of stamps.
Over the past few months, we have been trying to collect a few, but they sell out so quickly!
The last two we managed to get were Painted butterflies {I love butterflies} and the vintage flowers but i think peony bouquet may be next if we can get a hold of one.



My first card is a 5x5 design. I know its a sympathy card, not a great occasion to make for, but creating the pattern using black and grey ink gives it a classic look. This colour would also be good for weddings. I simply matted my panel on black and added a craftwork cards sentiment.


My second again uses the Vintage flowers, this time in a pale/ dusky pink combo along with the leaves. I added a panel of vellum down the centre, some ribbon along the bottom and matted on black. This card is a 6x6.


My final card is back to 5x5 and is just a simple design using the vintage flowers. The Miss you sentiment came from the painted butterflies collection. I chose to make this card with blue inks.

Those are my first few cards, i'll have some more to share soon including some butterfly makes. Remember you can also visit my Pinterest boards and pin some of these cards.
