Altenew Simple Flowers

Most of the time I buy a set of stamps because I know immediately how I'm going to use it. Sometimes, though, I buy one because it intrigues me and I know the possibilities will unfold. Altenew's Simple Flowers falls into the second category. It's a relatively new set that showed up in my mailbox a couple days ago. Despite my writing deadlines, I needed to get inky so I looked at both of the challenges Altenew is sponsoring this month and decided to combine them.

I stamped the flowers in CTMH pigment inks Honey, Sorbet, and Smoothie. To get the overlayed sentiment, I used my MISTI to stamp Beautiful in black on the base panel, glued down the Smoothie rectangle, stamped Beautiful again, glued down the white rectangle, and stamped one more time. I white embossed "You're so" onto black cardstock, trimmed it with scissors and glued it down then added sequins to finish. The last step was to trim my base panel to 4 x 5.25 and mount it on a black 4.25 x 5.5 card.

The basic design is from Altenew's March 2017 Sketch Challenge, and the colors are from the March 2017 Inspiration Challenge.

Now I really do have to get up to my office and write. I have two deadlines which are pressing down, so fun time is over.

Until next time,


  1. Love your card Becca, and great job combining both Altenew challenges for the month!!

  2. Becca, I'm really loving the few modern cards you've done recently - so different for you! You've got such a great eye :O)


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. You bless me!
