Hi Everyone!
Today I'm here with another card as inspiration for the wonderful SSS June card kit .

Here I embossed the Beautiful SSS ultrathick white card stock  with the Amazing Botanical 3D Texture Fades Embossing folder. I then inked it with distress ink. The thanks Word is diecut from black cardstock and the thick juicy Tonic-GOLD-PEARL-Mirror-Card-Satin-Effect-Cardstock

Altenew June 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hi, Everyone!

I am so excited to be part of the Altenew June 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop today. Altenew is releasing some absolutely Amazing stamps and dies.

For this card I diecut the Beautiful Moroccan Mosaic Cover Die and matted it to some vellum and then diecut a Mega Alphabet A - Z Dies  K that I stamped and colored using the Lovely Ditsy Print Stamp Set. The sentiment is from the Perfectly Perfect Stamp Set.

My second Project is one my son absolutely LOVES. I used the Mega Alphabet A - Z Dies  to create a personalized pillowcase. This is such a fast and fun gift. I simply ironed on some vlisofix transfer glue to the back of a piece of White fabric and the die cut the letters for his name. Then I simply ironed them on to a large piece of cotton fabric and used zigzag stitching to fasten them Before making the pillowcase. These dies are wonderful - they cut through fabric as if it was butter (-:

For the Barcelona FC tag I used the Lovely Hug Me - Stamp and die bundle  and More than Words


 For this card I stamped the Ditsy Print Stamp Set and then colored the cardstock to create my own Beautiful patterned paper.  The sentiment is from Perfectly Perfect Stamp Set and the alphas are: Inline Alpha die set

I'm in love with the Moroccan Mosaic Cover Die - there are so many Amazing uses with it! And endless designs!

For my last card I used watercolors to make this very Clean and simple, yet Beautiful card with the Lovely Sweetest Peas Stamp Set. If you love watercoloring this is the perfect set - these flowers hold so many Beautiful colors and no other coloring medium will create that very special look!
