If you have found your way here, this post coordinates with the Instagram hop.
This little set is so cute. If you are a classic car lover, then this ones a winner.

I stamped the different parts of the Mini Delight" You're A Classic on a small piece of cardstock with Heart Beat, Permanent Black, and Limestone Inks. Then I used the Die to cut it out.
I stamped the left edge of a Neenah white panel with the Woven Stripes in Heart Beat Ink. Added a spall strip of black cardstock. I cut the "Dad" letters from the Fine Alphabet Dies three times and glued them together. I did the same thing with the "classic" letters from the die set. Finally, I adhered everything to the panel and stamped "you're a" on it with Obsidian Black Ink and adhered the panel to a white card base.

Thanks for visiting.

So glad you are visiting.

I was feeling some monochromatic vibes in my craft room today, and thought I would do something besides the gray cardstock with colored pencils that seems to be the go-to monochromatic color scheme the I tend to like the most. 
I stamped the outline images from the Wispy Joy Stamp Set onto some khaki cardstock with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it using Pure White Embossing Powder. I'd like to say that I was resisting buying more embossing powders until what I have was gone. But I went ahead and bought some of the Altenew ones besides the Platinum. They are very nice powders, and melt and react very well.

I used the Warm Gray Crisp Dye Inks with the flower layers to fill in the images and then used the Dies to cut them out.

I took another panel of khaki cardstock and dry embossed it with the Sylvan Baroque 3D Embossing Folder. I used Lave Rock and some white acrylic paint to add slatters on the panel. The panel needed something so I rubbed the raised parts with Morning Frost ink and adhered it to a white card base.

I colored a piece of cardstock with Lava Rock ink. When the ink was dry, I heat embossed the sentiment from the Dainty Swiss Dots Stamp Set.

Adhered the flowers and leaves- some with Instant Dimmension Foam Tape and some liquid glue and the finished by adding the sentiment.

 Thanks for visiting.

Hi Everyone!

Hope you have enjoyed the hop so far. You should have found your way from Bridget Casey, or you can go back to the beginning of the hop over on the Altenew card blog Here.

It actually took me a little while to think of what I wanted to do with the Craft Your Life Project Kit: Florescence. I’ve come up with two examples to share with you.

I began by stamping the two large images onto some Neenah cardstock with Permanent Black Ink. I used the Stencils and Small and Mini Blending Brushes to color in the images with Pink Pearl, Heart Beat, Ruby Red, Citrus Burst, Maple Yellow, Persian Blue, and Shadow Creek

I used the Dies to cut them out, and cut two blank ones out as well. I adhered them to a clear acetate card base. I heat embossed the sentiment on the front and added a drop shadow on the sentiment with a Fine Liner Pen.

For the second card, I heat embossed one of the  images onto some watercolor paper with Platinum Embossing Powder
I used the 24 Pan Watercolors to color them in. Then I used the 3D Embossing Folder on another piece of watercolor cardstock and ran it through my die cut machine. I added a wash of color over it with the 24 Pan Watercolors

I splattered the panel with some black gauche and then adhered the 3D Embossed panel to a white card base with a strip of The Gilded Glitter Cardstock. I cut the painted panel out with the Die and adhered that to the card. Finally, I stamped the sentiment with some Obsidian Black Ink.

Thank you for visiting!
