altenewbloghop_nov152016Hello, and welcome to the Altenew November Release 2016 Blog Hop! If you came from the amazing Svitlana’s blog, you are right on track! Today the design team girls and guests are sharing some fabulous projects to celebrate the release of 15 new stamp sets and 8 die sets including the Adore You stamp set I designed.

I created a clean and simple one layer card using the Hello Sunshine stamp set. This set includes many elements that can be used to build your own backgrounds or patterns. So I decided to create a floral frame or wreath to highlight the images in the set.

I made a video tutorial to show you how to create this card. I’m also sharing some special tips in the video you won’t want to miss. You can watch it here or on my YouTube channel:

How to Make a Clean and Simple One Layer Card using Your Own Floral Frame

  1. Cut Neenah Solar White Cardstock 80LB into 4.25 x 5.5 using Tim Holtz paper trimmer. (You can stamp your images directly on the A2 size top folding card if you want to. However, I stamped the images on the panel first and adhered the stamped panel to the card base later. Just because I wanted to make sure that my stamping surface is flat so I don’t make any mistakes on stamping.)
  2. Draw an oval shape on the paper using a pencil and the oval die from Pretty Pink Posh.(If you don’t have this die, you may draw the oval frame yourself. It’s okay not to be perfect because you are going to erase it eventually.)
  3. Stamp the sentiment from the Hello Sunshine stamp set inside the oval with black ink.
  4. Stamp the images from the Hello Sunshine stamp set along the oval pencil line using black ink. (If you use Altenew black ink for stamping like I did, make sure to dry your stamped images first before you color them with Copic markers to prevent from ink bleeding. Otherwise, I recommend you to use Memento Tuxedo black ink or Hero Arts intense black ink.)
  5. Color the images using Copic markers and erase the pencil line.
  6. Adhere the colored panel on an A2 size top folding card using glue tape.
  7. Add white dots on some of the flowers using white gel pen and black dots around the foliages using a black pen.
  8. Finish off the card by applying some shimmer with Wink of Stella Glitter Clear Brush on the images.

    Hi!
    This is my first time visiting your blog! I love what I see! I learn best by watching videos, but I love written directions, too. I often quickly forget what happens first, second and so on… or measurements! YIKES! I love your card. The colors are so fun and I think your whole team likes little dotty things…especially white dots! They look great! Great sentiment!

    Thank you for the chance to win a prize from your blog! And, thank you to Altenew for their very generous give aways and for stamps I really want to play with every day!

    He IS Able!

    BEAUTIFUL card!!!
    LOVE your delicate oval wreath, LOVE your pretty colours and cheery sentiment too!!!
    THANK YOU for sharing your INKY INSPIRATION and video, it was wonderful watching you create and get your clever tip with the T-ruler 🙂
    PS – your question is a tough one, not something I have ever sat back and thought about. One thing I’m proud about is that I have turned the aches and pains of Rheumatoid Arthritis into a creative hobby that allows me to make cards to send love, hugs and smiles in envelopes all over the world
