What a fun release to end being a guest designer.
 I hope that I am asked to participate again really soon. 

Now, for the release. WOW! So fun! You should of come from Keren Baker. Or you can go back to the beginning of the hop HERE.

This first card was pretty quick to put together. I cut the Wave Form Cover Die from some white cardstock. I used Ocean Waves, Tide Blue, Dusk, Sapphire, and Gray Denim with the Small Blending Brushes to color the shapes.

I layered those onto a white piece of cardstock and left a small space between the spaces. I had to cut down the small piece in the lower right, and along the bottom a little to make it work. I then layered that onto a black piece of cardstock and then to a white card base.

I cut the "You" from the Mega You die from white twice, and black once. Layered those with the black one dropped down and to the right, then adhered that t the card with some silver thread puddled underneath it. I stamped the sub sentiment from the Mega Greetings 2 Stamp set and adhered that to the card with some foam tape.

For my second card I embossed the second largest die from the Mix and Match Frames Dies on white cardstock. Then used the smallest pen from the Fine Liner Pen set to add the lines around the embossed frame. Then cut the inside from from white cardstock as well. layered those on a piece of black cardstock and then on a white card base.

I then Stamped the flowers from the Fresh Cut Roses Stamp Set with Permanent Black ink on White cardstock.

I colored them in with he Artist Makers in colors C004G804G825G935Y514, Y608, and Y817. I fussy cut them out and adhered them and my sentiment to the card.

And the last card I cut the leaves from the Inline Leaves Die set from some white cardstock and colored it with Charcoal Suit ink by rubbing the mini ink pad over the cut leaves.

I rubbed some Arctic ink over the center pard of a piece of white cardstock and then to a small piece as well. I also rubbed Silver Stone ink around the outside of a n A-2 size white panel.

I stamped the sentiment from the Adore You Add on Stamp Set in Charcoal Suit onto the small piece of cardstock I colored in Arctic ink. Cut it to the size I wanted and adhered that to a bigger piece of white cardstock.

I adhered all the panels to a white card base and then the leaves on top. And finally, I adhered the sentiment with some foam tape with some silver thread.

I want to thank Altenew for this opportunity to participate the last couple months. It was a lot of fun.

Make today amazing!
