We have is our 'Theme Challenge' with the optional twist of coloring in any medium If you do twist with us you get a chance to win a $25 gift voucher (chosen randomly) from our wonderful sponsor  Newton's Nook Design's I was about to take a break for this challenge, I have not been crafting since 2 weeks!

Rose card for YOU - Altenew

Hello everyone, I am glad you stopped by! I have a new card using a technique that I have shared here, for my card inspired by the ongoing Inspiration challenge at Altenew . I was not only inspired but the colors but also the focus on the eggs and arrangement in the centre. I used  Layered Rose die set  with my alcohol inked paper and die cut the the segmented petals from silver cardstock. I used diluted Pool alcohol ink for the  Caps bold alphabet Y and U  and my rose for O of the YOU. I really loved the variation with inks for the rose and the leaf and the letters are so pretty in light blue. If you'd like to see how I made this card you can check this video here or watch it here.  Joining in at Altenew April - inspiration challenge Happy little stampers Addicted to stamps challenge Word art wednesday Seize the birthda y

They have such amazing and unique layered stamps. Do check out their online shop!   It was last year when I won a GC to a fantastic stamp company Paper Smooches, for this card.   It was just before my birthday and I came to know that the owner Kim and I shared birthdays and she gave a 49% off on her birthday (and mine). So I splurged and bought amazing PS goodies. Sadly, after a month she also announced that she will be closing the shop. Luckily I bought the stuff and then Corona happened and finally my goodies reached me in March this year. I love all her stuff! and can't wait to use them all. I was inspired by the
