AECP Family Instagram Hop

Welcome to an AECP Family Hop where we are sharing the Altenew Academy class which has inspired us the most.

We are all at various points in our AECP journey, but we are united in wanting to celebrate the inspiration and knowledge we’ve gained from the classes in Altenew Academy.

~~~~~~ GIVEAWAY ~~~~~~

Altenew is generously sponsoring this hop and to be in with a chance to win one of FOUR $25 gift certificates to their online store. You will find all details and the hop list of designers over my IG account.

To be honest, I loved many classes so I decided to put a lit bit of three of them on this card: “All About Layering”, “Creating Watercolor Media” and “Let It Shine”.

Let’s start!

To create my background I used Watercolor Brush markers and I made this organic look with lots of splatters but I didn’t covered the whole panel so the background would have some movement. The colors of watercolors I used on the panel are Rubellite, Midnight Violet and Emerald. These colors belong to the Spring Garden set.

Once my panel was dry, I placed it inside the Mod Squares 3D Embossing Folder and run it through my die cutting machine. Next, I added a white folded note card at the back using glue.

Then, I added some touches of Antique Gold Pigment over the embossed panel. Additionally, I gold heat embossed some flowers and leaves from the stamp set Nature Blossoms. I watercolored these flowers and leaves using more of the Watercolor Brush markers. The colors I used were Fresh Lemon, Sunkissed, Emerald and Desert Night. Using the matching die I die cut all these images.

I arranged all flowers and leaves on top of my panel using glue and foam tape. Also, I die cut the Waterbrush Hello Die out of golf foil paper and placed it on top of my arrangement. Finally, I watercolor a piece of watercolor paper using Emerald Watercolor Brush marker and once it was dry I gold heat embossed my sentiment and added it to my background along with some sequins and this card was finished.

I hope you like this card and get some inspiration. You will find all the products I used down below. Don’t forget to participate in the IG Hop and leave some love to the other designers. Thank you so much for stopping by and have wonderful weekend!

Picket Fence Studios April new release is here!

Hi crafty friends! And a new release from Picket Fence Studios is here! The April release is full of wonderful new products and to show case them I have made 5 cards and I will be telling you step by step how I made this Wild Daisy slimline card. Also, below you will find more pictures of the other cards I created for this release and the link to all products (Affiliated links at no cost to you!).

Let’s start! Using the new Scallop Frame Slimline Die I die cut a piece of watercolor paper. I created this organic and natural look for this background using yellow, orange and green watercolors. As you can see I used lots and lots of splatters all around the panel. Then, once my panel was dry, I adhered a folded slimline card at the back using glue.

Next, with the help of my MISTI I stamped the Wild Daisies Stamp onto piece of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White using Picket Fence Studios Black Hybrid ink and colored them using Copic Markers. When I finished coloring I fussy cut the whole image, added foam tape at the back and placed it at the bottom of my panel.

Finally, I die cut the Slimline Big Happy Hugs out of two different colors of green cardstock in order to create a shade underneath. I added this word dies to my panel using glue and this card was ready!

My next card features this small scallop circle and “hi” word die from the Scallop Frame Slimline Dies.

For the following card I have created a shaker card and I’m show casing the new “celebrate” word die also part of the new Scallop Frame Slimline Dies.

This card features the Monarch Butterfly die cut out of gold glittery cardstock.

And finally I have created this slimline card featuring the new Cats are Family Stamp Set and Details of a Wing Slimline Stencil.

I really hope I can inspire you with all these cards that I have made for this April release. You can click here to find all new products at the Picket Fence Studios store. Thank you so much for stopping by and have a marvelous day!

Waffle Flower Challenge

Hello crafty friends! Did you hear the news? Waffle Flower just started a new weekly challenge program! Each Waffle Flower Challenge (Link: https://waffleflower.com/challenges/) starts on a Friday and runs for a week! This week’s challenge is hosted by their design team member Jeanne. Michelle and I are so excited to be co-hosting the challenge by sharing our creations on 3 platforms: Blog (Link Party), Instagram and Facebook! Check out all the details below!

This week, we challenge you to use watercolored florals in your projects!

There are three ways to enter the challenges:

And here is the direct link to the link party post!:
https://fresh.inlinkz.com/p/0ec860837cbe4fde98f4e3b8a86671a2

Hope you would join us in the challenge fun! There are awesome rewards!

And here is my take on the challenge:

For these cards I’m featuring the Bouquet Builder 3 and Sentiment Additions Stamps and dies from Waffle Flower

I stamped these bouquets using Gingerbread hybrid ink from Scrapbook and colored the flowers and leaves with Copic markers.

I die cut the bouquets and additional flowers and leaves using the coordinating dies.

Above you can take closer look of the flowers. And by the way, this stamp set is absolutely gorgeous!

My backgrounds were created using watercolors and for this card I used teals and aqua colors to make the flowers and leaves pop up from the background. I really love all that contrast of colors on this slimline watercolor card.

I added the bouquet to my background using foam and glue. Finally, I stamped the “love you” sentiment using black ink, die cut it using the matching die and placed it on top of the bouquet.

My second card was created following the same steps as I did with my first card.

But this time, the watercolor background was created using green and yellow colors. That organic look on both cards is exactly what I wanted to create when I first visualized these cards in my mind.

Again, here you can see all the contrast of colors between the flowers and the background.

I really hope you liked these cards that I created with tons of love for all of you. Also, I hope I can inspire you I want to encourage you to play with us in this awesome challenge all this coming week. On Instagram use hashtag #WFC2103W3.

I can’t wait to see all your wonderful floral creations using watercolor. Good luck and have a marvelous day!

Your friend, Karen
