Altenew Beauty Within and Wax seal

Hey all! I am super late sharing this on my blog, but I have been dealing with an allergy for a month now that keeps causing my eyes to swell and hives everywhere, but I digress we are here to share a pretty card!

I was blessed in September to have a guest spot with Altenew. Those of you that know me, know that I swoon over Altenews stamps and products! This was a dream come true!

I did some embossing and painting on some black watercolor paper. Using a ton of fun products from Altenew!

Also, if you haven’t seen it on their channel yet, I created a process video of this card!

I am so thrilled with how this one came out. It looks so classic and can be used for pretty much any occasion I can think of!

Toucan Party

Hey everyone! I am absolutely honoured to be guest designing for Newton’s Nook for the month of January! I can’t wait to share all my projects with you all! But for today I have a party¬† card, considering its New Years day and lots of people celebrate it, I figured it was super fitting!

So I pulled out the Toucan Party set for this little gem!

Black – N9, N7, N5, N3
Yellow – Y17, Y15, Y13, Y11

Its looking like a GOLD Christmas




Wow, we are on day 6 already! Haven’t the guest posts been amazing! It is so much fun, and so inspirational to see other people’s work, I hope you are enjoying it as much as I am! Today I kept things rather clean and simple. The deer is from the silhouette studio, the file is called Christmas Demask (design id #34432), I cut and layered 2 of these together and then embossed them with Hero Arts Gold embossing powder a couple of times. Then I tied a piece of pay arts natural jute twine around his throat in a pretty bow.





The card base is Neenah Desert Storm cardstock, I then layered a piece of Birch woodveneer paper (That I got from SSS) a gold colour striped paper (no idea what paper line that is from) and then glitter paper from colorbok. The sentiment is from a Hero Arts clear set, and I layered that on another gold embossed layer.
