    I've got three projects to share with you today. First up, I used the Doodled Triangles Stamp Set with Crisp Dye inks from Altenew in Pale Plum, Cloudy Sky, Nimbus, and Dark Night to stamp the images over my panel.



I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock with the Dark Night ink.


I cut the sentiment down to the size and rubbed the edges into the Pale Plum ink.


I adhered it to the panel with some foam tape and then adhered the panel to a dark blue card base. And then added some clear sequins to finish this one off.


For the second card, I started by stamping the small floral image from the Fresh Bloom Stamp set with Embossing Ink many times to cover a white panel that was treated with an anti-static tool. Then heat set with white embossing powder.


I used the Small Blending Brushes with Pink Pearl, Citrus Burst, Sea Glass, and Sea Breeze crisp dye inks and blended the colors over the panel.


I adhered that to a black piece of cardstock that was slightly larger. I stamped the larger flower and leaves onto some velum that was treated with an anti-static tool with Obsidian Pigment Ink and heat set that with clear powder. I love this trick. You do not end up with black speckles where you do not want them using  black ink with clear powder.


I then used the coordinating Fresh Bloom Dies to cut them out. I ran a white card panel through the Crystal Wall 3D Embossing Folder and adhered that to a white card base then adhered the stamped and blended panel onto that.


I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock and adhered it to the card, I used some velum adhesive to adhere the leaves behind the sentiment and the flower on the top.


My last project started as an experiment.  I adhered some 1/4" washi tape every 1/2" onto a white card panel. Using my finger I applied white pigment ink and then mixed in some of the Caribbean Sky and Sapphire Mixed Media Inks. 


Then pulled the tape off and loved the striped background that it created.


I stamped the flower and leaves from the Fresh Bloom set with Permanent Black Ink onto a piece of white cardstock. Then used the layered stamps to color in the flowers and leaves. I used Polar Bear, Icy Water, Winter Lake, Arctic Mountain, Firefly, Green Field, Shadow Creek, Citrus Burst, Maple Yellow, and Honey Drizzle inks.


I then used the coordinating Dies to cut them out with my die cutting machine. I adhered the sentiment with some foam tape.


I finally used one of the Fine Liner Pens to add some dots or speckles to the card.

Welcome!
 If you made it here, you have made to the last stop. You should have come from Joy Baldwin.

This is such a beautiful stamp set. 
I started by cutting a rectangular panel with the Nesting Slim Rectangular Dies. I then used some 1/4" washi tape and masked off every inch. I used the Small Blending Brushes and Persian Blue and Sapphire Crisp Dye inks to blend color onto the panel, darker at the bottom left to lighter on the top right. I then removed the washi tape.


I stamped the images from the Fashion Monger Dahlia Stamp Set onto another piece of cardstock with Permanent Black Ink. I blended Citrus Burst, Sunkissed, Firefly, and Grass Fields onto them with the Small Blending Brushes. I then cut them out wit the coordinating dies.


I cut the next larger rectangle from the Nesting Slim Rectangle Dies and adhered it to a white card base. Then adhered the striped panel to the card, and adhered the flowers and leaves to the card with some foam tape. I added a sentiment from the Bouquet Of Love Stamp Set to the card.

ALTENEW JULY VIDEO HOP



Hi! 
Hope you have had fun visiting the videos on the hop today. Karen Baker was the  video before mine, and this one is the last. You've made it to the end.

I've used the Cool Decades Stamp Set along with Crisp Dye inks in Firebrick, Buttercream, Sand Dunes, Frayed Leaf, Sea Glass,
and Desert Night to randomly stamp the images all over this 6" x 6" white card panel.

I used the Cool Doodles 3D embossing folder and ran it through my die cutting machine using the 3D embossing folder instructions.


I used the shape that look like a shoe to stamp the sentiment on. I first double stamped it in Buttercream Crisp Dye Ink, then I lined up the stamp that says; "to the best thing that came out of the" and masked off the "happy birthday" part of it with some washi tape, inked it up with Permanent Black ink, removed the tape and stamped it.

I used the Just A Number Die Set to cut out the "happy birthday" twice out of black card, and once out of gold mirror card. glued them all together with liquid glue. I adhered the panel to a rust colored card base, and then adhered the happy birthday with liquid glue, and the little shoe shape with foam adhesive.

I hope you have enjoyed the hop.
Thanks for visiting.
