Altenew Moments in time and ATC's?

 
Hello,
I thought I would share a quick card today featuring Altenew stamps. I actually made this card a few weeks ago and have had it scheduled for ages. I've been busy with my dylusions again and will have some more projects to share soon.
So, this is a 5x7 card. I inked a complete A4 sheet and used it to create three cards. I cut a piece to fit my card, along with a black matt panel, then stamped the sweet swing image from the Moments in time set. I also used one of the sentiments.

I also have a question for my fellow bloggers, do any of you make ATC's? It was something I made along time ago but after buying some new Wonky Tonk dreamers stamps from Which craft this week I have created a set of nine. 

I will be sharing them hopefully later this week.

Creative Inspirations: Blooms and Bows



Hello,
It is time for a new challenge over at Creative Inspirations and this fortnights theme is

BLOOMS AND BOWS

For my card, i used a Saturated canary image called Korra, which i cropped and put in an oval. As usual, she is coloured with promarkers.
The papers are from the Anna Marie Designs Blissful peach {My favorite paper pads.} along with the matching sentiment.
I added pearls, flowers and ribbon to finish.

Challenges:
My favorite colour changes, usually depending on my mood or whatever im creating at the time, but recently i seem to have been using a lot of peach. I like peach because i always think of it as an pink/orange inbetween colour. I think it makes beautiful girly cards, rather than pink all the time but can also be used for more of a grown up too.

Altenew: Be a Dreamer

 
Hello,
Today I have an Altenew/ dylusions card to share using one of my favourite stamp sets, Happy dreams. I love this stamp set because of all the dreamy sentiments and the pretty floral shadow and feather stamps. There's even the moon and the star's which are beautiful inked in gold or silver. Some of the sentiments featured on set are new year based but the set is perfect for all year around.

For my card (6x6) I inked my background, spraying polished jade, after midnight and lemon zest dylusion ink sprays. I then used the floral shadow silhouette stamps and feather stamp in black. I die cut a circle and stamped the large Be a Dreamer sentiment and placed it in the centre of the floral/feather designs. I finished by adding sequins to finish.

Decades: 60's inspired

 
Hello,
Today I have a card to share that I have made for this months challenge over at lili of the valley, which is to feature a female.
I've been waiting to get my hands on the new decades inspired digi images since they were previewed late last month and I now finally have some! 
My first make using my new images features this 60's themed image. I chose this image because if there was a decade I could visit it would be the sixties, just for the fashion. I  coloured my image with Promarkers. I used Nitwit collections happy too papers all matted on white and created different size circles to echo the pattern on the dress. I added some flowers, dew drops and a sentiment to finish.  
Challenges:
My favourite card bases are square because I find a square is the perfect shape to show off embellishments and layers well and lots of stamps fit well on square bases too.

Creative Inspirations: Spring!

 

Hello,
It is time for a new challenge over at Creative Inspirations and this fortnights theme is... SPRING!
