Altenew Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop +Video

Hello Everyone! And welcome to my stop on the Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop at Altenew. If you are hopping along from the beginning of the bloghop, you should be arriving from the blog of, Nancy McClelland . The full bloghop list is at the end of this post. You won't want to miss a single stop that is filled with lovely Spring Card inspiration!


The goal of the Celebrating Parents Card Drive is to send cards for the elderly that lives in nursing homes or shelters to let them know they’re not forgotten. We encourage you to check out the Celebrating Parents Card Drive and join this great cause by sending in cards.
Altenewl will be Giving Back 20% of the profits earned from these select stamp sets:
Best Dad, Painted Rose, Extra Special, Lotus, Cross Stitch Flower, and Best Mom by 6/16/2019. Proceeds will be donated to the Food Bank of Central New York to support seniors in need.

I have two cards to inspire you to get your stamp sets out and create some cards of your own for this Card Drive!

My first card is simple stamping with the Cross Stitch Flower stamp set.
After inking the Cross Stitch Flower onto an A2 sized white card stock with Crisp inks: Rose Quartz, Puffy Heart, Purple Wine, Buttercream Sunkissed,Bamboo, and Olive 
  • I ran the panel through my die-cutting machine with the Cross Stitch Canvas Die for some added interest 
  • Then I fussy cut around the top of the stamped images 
  • Layered it over a panel that was softly brushed with Rose Quartz and Puffy Heart over the Square Weave Pattern Stencil
  • Popped up the top edge with foam tape
  • Embellished with Enamel Dots


 *******
My next card has a detailed process video you can watch below or on my Youtube channel in HD.

This card features the Charmed Stamp Set colored with the new Watercolor Brush Markers .- Tropical Fiesta Set.


 The sentiment is found in the Best Dad Stamp Set

I really enjoyed using the watercolor Brush Markers to add color then moved the color around with a clean water brush.
