Back with another fun release, the new monthly Paint-A- Flower set, featuring a bloom called Camellia. As I have shared in the past, I subscribe monthly -- its my treat to myself that I look forward to getting in the mail. My favorite thing to do is color so for me this is my favorite Altenew subscription.
You're probably thinking, why did you cut the bloom.? Honestly, it was not what I intended to do. Sometimes you have to go with the flow and keep going. I smudged my image while water-coloring, I was way past starting all over. I am firm believer in trying to salvage something instead of wasting products and tossing them.
In the end, I was pleased with my results. I hope I have encouraged you to keep going... sometimes some of my best work has been from fixing mistakes, smudges etc. Don't be afraid to keep going!

I was so happy to be asked to do some design work again for Altenew. It is just what the doctor ordered. I absolutely love this set. So many possibilities!!
It sure has been way too long since I have created. My youngest graduated from high school in June and headed off to college in September, shortly after we began house hunting. After looking at many houses, a few failed offers (tough market for buyers)- we found a small house to buy. We closed December 18th, in time to celebrate Christmas in our new home.
Todays card feature a beautiful bloom, a Peony. I love how fluffy they are.
Staying true to my style, I did a focal point, water-colored image. If you haven't picked up the new Altenew Woodless Watercolor Pencil Set, you're totally missing out. Like me they will be your favorite medium! I was so excited to use them for the first time, they are dreamy!
Well, I hope you like my card, I am very happy with the results! As always, thanks for visiting my blog, be sure to leave a comment, so I know you were here. Happy Stamping!!

Hello Altenew fans!! All of us at Altenew are hopping today to share the latest Craft-A-Flower: Daisy Layering Die Set. This is set is so fun and an easy option when you want to do something a bit different with limited stamping like I did (only stamping the sentiment) I have a super easy card to share so keep scrolling to check it out. Don't miss out on the prize info at the bottom of this post, along with the your next stop on the hop!
This was such a fun card to make. So cheery! I used the die-cut panels as a stencil to make a pretty background behind my flower blooms.
I used all white cardstock on my card. To create the leaves and centers, I swiped my ink-pads across the cardstock. I used Chamomile for the background and centers of the petals (using a blender brush), I also, used Firefly and Shadow Crush on the leaves.
To finish my card, I used foam square for the bloom. I stamped a sentiment from a mini set called Grateful.- using Obsidian Black Ink. My final touch was some splatters using liquid ink I have on hand.
An Altenew hop would not be the same without a giveaway and prizes. be sure to leave comments along the way to increase your chances of winning. Good Luck!!

YOUR NEXT STOP ON THE HOP IS NICOLE'S
It's time for another release from my favorite stamp company, Altenew. Here's the link to see the July 2020 Stamps Dies Stencils Inks Video Blog Hop Release! I am delighted to share one project with you from this release. The format of the release is a video hop from now on, (since I am not very tech savvy in making videos), I am not part of the hop. I love that Altenew embraces all designers by including all of us in a chance to still be apart of the release.
Today, I am showing off the lovely stamp set called Courageous You. The day I made this card, was on my 20th wedding anniversary. I did not put it all together until I was done but there is a unintentional thing I did. Can you guess what it is??
For my card today, I stamped my images on Altenew Watercolor Paper using Obsidian Black Ink. To color my images, I applied ink to a craft mat and painted with a brush and some water. I used the Enchanted Garden Oval Ink Set and Green Valley Mini Cube Set for my color palette. So pretty!
My HERO Product of the Day!

Hello Altenew friends. Today, the Altenew Educator Team is honoring our Heroes with a blog hop. We want to thank you for your service in making our World a better place. During these unprecedented times. I have seen the love and humanity of many people, in all walks of life, young and old, every profession. I will never again take for granted even the simplest things, like standing in lines in grocery store when I can actually stand by someone, smile and talk. I won't take for granted the quiet time sitting at a table drinking a cold glass of water, waiting to be served a meal. The list goes on and on. Thank you to all our heroes big and small, black and white!
Now, lets talk stamping (my creative therapy). Recently, I have been practicing my water-coloring, someday I want to grow up to be Erum. She inspires me everyday with her beautiful coloring. I hope I make her proud.
I absolutely love the NEWER monthly subscription club, Paint A Flower. I subscribe to it and look forward to getting a new stamp every month that is perfect for coloring. Today, I am using Paint A Flower: Iris. I am working on the no line coloring technique... I still need a lot of practice. I LOVE how pretty these turned out.

Hello Friends. I am SO excited and honored to be apart of this months Altenew April Release Blog Hop party. You should have arrived from Kymona's Blog.
Last month, when May contacted me to pick out the products I wanted to design with, it was not an easy task, I loved them all. Thank you Altenew for letting me review your awesome products!
One of the products I am most excited about is the NEW Crafter’s Essential Stamping Mat! It's great for stamping, watercolor, ink blending, heat embossing, and everyday crafting! It is also a great backdrop for your photos!! Smiles.
Now, let's take a peek at my card samples!
Sweet Spring Stencil
I absolutely love Altenew's layering stencils! When I am in the mood to create a quick card on the go, I almost always grab a layering stencil. They are easy to use and they create a WOW factor for even the simplest looking cards. I paired some of my favorite Altenew ink colors: Sunray & Snapdragon and Mountain Mist & Teal Cave.
Dog Rose Panel & Die
Oh my goodness! Next up, is the amazing Dog Rose Panel and Die Bundle Set. I love the versatility of this die set. As you can see, in Card One I used one die-cut panel, in Card Two I used two die-cut panels to fill the entire card front. Combine the layers together and you will have a third option! Talk about getting a big bang for your buck!! This is a MUST buy item!!
Statement Flowers Stamp & Die
Well. some may say-- I left the best for last. For me, I could not pick a favorite set. Each card has its own uniqueness. I also love the stamp set, called Statement Flowers paired with its very own die (love that). I am a sucker for big, bold flowers that I can color.... or not! As you can see in the first sample it is beautiful colored, but in the second sample it is beautiful with only a splash of color.
Well, there you have it... I hope you enjoyed my creations as much as I do. I hope I inspired you to create your own cards after you load up your shopping cart w/all the new products you're gonna want. Be sure to hop along, leaving comments so you can get in on some prizes and giveaways!
