Altenew Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop + Giveaway

I am so happy to be part of such an act of kindness. Our goal is to send cards for the elderly that lives in nursing homes or shelters to let them know they’re not forgotten please visit Celebrating Parents Card Drive blog post.

Altenew is giving back 20% of the profits earned from select stamp sets (Best Dad, Painted Rose, Extra Special, Lotus, Cross Stitch Flower, and Best Mom) by 6/16/2019 will be donated to the Food Bank of Central New York to support seniors in need.

If you came here from Tania Ahmed, then you are on the right track. Otherwise, go back to the Altenew Card Blog and start from there, as you do not want to miss the beautiful creations done by the artist.

I created 3 cards and I am excited to share them with.

In this card, I used the Flower Vine stamp and die. I stamped my images on the watercolor background using Autumn Blaze ink. Next, I die cut words mom. Last, I stamped my sentiment ” you are amazing” but in the Arabic Language. The stamp set called Label Love Arabic stamp. I loved how the colors ( shades of orange worked together, so I tried with different color and here we go. Here, I used a shade of blue and blue-green.

Let me know which one is your favorite?

Now, moving to the second card 🙂

As my blue is my favorite color, I decided to color my daisy with different shades of blue. The stamp set called Spring daisy I used a Prismacolor pencil. To add a different texture to my panel, I added sequins to each center of the flower. I die cut word mom then stamped my sentiment using Label love stamp set.

Here is another close photo

Last but not least, my final card for today

A fun shaker card using vintage teacup stamp. I stamped the cup on a watercolor background. Next, I die cut word mom and stamped my sentiment from the same stamp set. Last, I created the shaker card panel. Easy Peasy!

I hope you like my cards! Please hob along. Your next stop is Patricia Roebuck.
