Altenew August Release Giveaway

Hi Everyone!

I am so super excited today to be joining Altenew's hop to share their latest release! There are some absolute Must-Haves here (-: If you are doing the hop you should have come here from Amazingly talented Erum Tasneem. If you just happened to stop by, make sure you scroll down and start the hop from the beginning so you don't miss the chance of winning lots of wonderful goodies (info below).
Now here are my cards:






For my first one I played with the wonderful Mega Happy Die I diecut it from white cardstock that I inked before adding glitter and Altenew's irridecent spray and then lots of glossy accent. My background was created with vellum and the wonderful  Leaf Frame Cover Die  from last month's release and the flowers are from a set called  Floral Art Die Set Floral Art Stamp Set .



I can't wait to share this with my niece who turns 16 soon. It was such a fast and fun card to make! I just LOVE the new  Mega Number Die Bundle (10 dies) - perfect for anything from birthdays and anniversaries to "You are my nr !" Valentine's cards! Here I paired them with an old and a new favorite: Hug Me - Stamp and die bundle    Script Words 3 Die Set

  





The Geo Frames Stamp & Die Bundle is such an awesome combo and I bet you've seen many great uses of them throughout the hop. Here I used them for a simple but pretty lable and with the beautiful Floral Art Die Set  and Floral Art Stamp Set I think it makes a really nice card design.



How I have loved to play with the Halftone Squares Stamp Set - the result is so cool and awesome. The YOU die is beautiful in itself but stamped like this - it's just another level!!!! Couldn't help to add another fox from my favorite : Hug Me - Stamp and die bundle   YOU is from Script Words 3 Die Set




My next carddesign can easily be personalized depending on the reciever - here I made a feminine and a masculine take, but with other colors and images it could be a cute kid's card instead. Supplies used:  Halftone Squares Stamp SetMega Number Die Bundle (10 dies)Moroccan Mosaic Cover Die

Important Update
Starting August, all of our new 6x8 and 4x6 stamp sets will come with tri-fold insert cards showcasing lots of added inspiration, project ideas, printed layering guides, and other useful information for customers. The price of these stamps (newly releasing stamps only) will slightly change to reflect this improvement. New pricing for 6x8 stamp set is $23.99 MSRP and 4x6 stamp set is $15.99 MSRP. We believe that this improvement will provide much more value to our customers and inspire them to create more with the provided information.

Guest Designing for Spellbinders Dala Horse

Hi Everyone!

I'm so happy today to share another project I had so fun making. I created them with lovely dies I was sent by the super sweet Yana at Spellbinders to play with!



Last week I shared a card made from this wonderful DALA-HORSE-Etched-Dies from Spellbinders. For that card I used a very classic coloring of the horse, but today I went monochrome and I really like the outcome. For the background I used the lovely SKETCHED-BLOOMS and the background is created by stamping white on vellum using Simon-Says-Cling-Rubber-Stamp-FOLK-DANCE which I thought fit perfectly!



I shop my  Spellbinders goodies at:

             Latest Spellbinders Nestabilites and Shapeabilites

Supply list from the Simon says Stamp store:
DALA-HORSE-Etched-Dies
NORDIC-BLOOMS-Etched-Dies
