Altenew Joy


MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!  I used up almost all of my pattern paper.  I saved 2 snow patterns, because I am saving those for another card.  Otherwise, there are just small strips of leftover paper.   I don't consider that a cheat because I said so.

Next year, I can splurge and get new Christmas paper.  Woot! Woot!  I can't wait to see what comes out.  This Christmas hasn't even happened and I am already looking forward to the next one.  LOL!

In the end I made 158 cards in this design.   I am pleased with the number of cards I was able to complete.   Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope that you have a blessed and Merry Christmas.

Team Tuesday with Kia

Kia here with you to share today's Team Tuesday card.

I used my Original Misti for this card, along with my Creative Corners. I changed the position of the first two stampings, then moved the paper for the last three stampings of the bell. I also overlapped the top bell with the second bell. I stamped all using Versamark and heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder.
 I then proceeded to watercolour using a mixture of watercolours, in the following order. Daniel Smith Manganese Blue, Schmincke May Green, Daniel Smith Phthalo Turquoise, Schmincke Cobalt Turquoise, Winsor Newton Permanent Rose and Winsor Newton Violet Dioxazine. I dragged a few of the colours down into the open space.
 I stamped the Jingle Bell sentiment from another stamp set using Ranger Archival in Paradise Teal. I wanted to use the die Believe, but was not sure how I wanted it to look, so I cut a few in different card stock. I also die cut some snowflakes from white glitter card stock.  
 I settled on using the Tonic Silky Sky Mirror card stock and the Silver Glitter card stock, shadowing the glitter with the sky colour.
Before proceeding any further, I splattered paint using my Kuretake White Gold Watercolour and the Schmincke Cobalt Teal.
 I then attached my panel to a blue/teal card base, and glued on the snowflakes, then attached the Believe sentiment using foam squares that I cut to fit. And, no surprise to me, but I just noticed now that I failed to dot the "i". It is done now, with a crystal gem. 
 I hope you have enjoyed this card today. and wish to thank you for visiting My Sweet Petunia.

Team Tuesday with Ilina: Your Friendship

Hi everyone!
Ilina here today with a fun and chic card using one of the new Concord and 9th sets called Winter Wear. I had so much fun making this card and the use of my MISTI made it a breeze! 
To make the card I started by stamping the head and the sentiment onto alcohol marker friendly card stock using Picket Fence Studios Intense Black Hybrid ink
I lined up my stamps onto the panel and picked them up with the MISTI, then stamped them and colored. On a separate piece of white card stock I stamped the scarf, colored it then die cut it. I assembled my panel and adhered to Turquoise Sea Top folding note card



Thank you so much for stopping by hope you are having a creative day!

Altenew Crafty Friends Blog Hop Day 1 + Giveaway


Hello and welcome to the Altenew Crafty Friends Bloghop.  You should have arrived here via May's blog if not, you will want to start at the Altenew Card blog because there are a ton of sponsors, so lots of prizes to be won. I have included the list below. 




I am so grateful to be a part of the crafty community. I have made so many friends here online and in real life by attending trade shows and retreats. I got my start many years ago I was invited to a stamping workshop and my life has never been the same. I was always crafting in one form or another but when I made my first card using embossing powder I fell in love. 
Another thing that changed my life is the MISTI. I was a card maker that threw away so many cards that I completed and when I went to stamp the sentiment I would stamp it crooked or not get a clean image and when I tried to stamp it again it was worse. The MISTI changed all that and my stamping life. I have always loved Altenew's stamps but to be honest I wouldn't buy them for the longest time because for the life of me I could not layer, they were gorgeous stamps but I couldn't get them aligned right until...yep the MISTI now I buy them all! 
I know it's the holiday season but it is cold where I live and its all brown and I needed some color!
 I used the Dahlia Blossoms stamp set along with the Halftone Hello stamp set and Halftone Hello coordinating  Die. 

Now let's talk prizes, 

Prizes
Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 5 lucky winners and one Altenew Academy class to 5 lucky winners. There are also 12 awesome friends who are celebrating with us, and they are offering the following prizes:

Team Tuesdays with Susan: Foiling with Perfect Pearls and the MISTI

Hi,
I am up on the blog today with this sparkly card using foiling with Perfect Pearls based on a technique by Jennifer McGuire.




I used Jennifer McGuire's technique of lifting off Perfect Pearls pigment powder with Versamark. But I added a twist - and this is not a new twist by any means. I inked up a sheet of Neenah Desert Storm with Versamark and applied the Perfect Pearls.  I set the Perfect Pearls with water and left the paper to try for 24 hours in my MISTI - drying time may be less if you are in a very dry climate.

Once the paper was dry, I placed the stamp in my MISTI and applied a thin coating of Deco Arts transfer gel to the stamp and stamped it on to the paper. There is a video below showing the whole process start to finish.


 Once the transfer gel was dried, I ran the stamped image through my laminator with some gold foil and got this beautiful, distressed foiled background. I wish you could see this in person as it is so shimmery and gorgeous.

Thank you for stopping by!
Susan

Lawn Fawn Winter Skies and Altenew Washi



No, I have not given up on my quest of using all my pattern paper.  Lawn Fawn just got the best of me.  I keep running across the Winter Skies stamp set each time I looked for a stamp in my Christmas bin of stamps.  So instead of saying I will get to it, I just jumped right in.


I knew I wanted to use the Altenew Nebula washi tape and the rest was easy.   I will keep this post short since it is after Thanksgiving and every one is in a rush to shop and finish cards.

Hope you enjoy the video and have a blessed weekend!
