Good morning! I’m so excited to be hopping along to celebrate the October stencil and washi tape release from Altenew! I’ve got 2 different projects and a giveaway to share so let’s get started!
First up is this floral card using Grateful Heart!
I started by stamping several of my flowers using Altenew inks in Pink Pearl, Coral Bliss, Heart Beat, Buttercream, Warm Sunshine, and Jet Black. I stamped the leaves with Morning Frost, Evening Gray, Moon Rock, and Jet Black. Once I was done stamping I die-cut all the images with the coordinating dies.
Then I trimmed a panel of watercolor paper down to 3.75″ by 8″ and gave it an ombre watercolor wash with the Jet Black watercolor marker. After I finished the wash I added splatters of water and more concentrated Jet Black ink. Once the panel was dry I arranged my flowers and adhered them with a mix of regular adhesive and foam mounting tape. I stamped the sentiment from Grateful Heart onto white cardstock with Moon Rock, trimmed it down to a thin label, and adhered it to the card with foam mounting tape. Finally I added a little crystal glaze to the flower centers to finish the card.
Next is this landscape card using the fun Wanderlust stamp set!
To start I blended Parisian Blue, Ultramarine, Sapphire, and Jet Black ink onto a panel of white cardstock. I let it dry and then stamped the sentiment and moon from Wanderlust with versamark and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder. Then I added stars with a white gel pen and a posca paint pen.
Next I stamped the mountains from Wanderlust with Jet Black ink towards the bottom third of my panel. I swiped my Jet Black ink pad across the bottom of the panel to continue the black. I let it dry completely and then stamped the treeline with versamark and heat-embossed it with silver sparkle embossing powder for a little sparkle!

The coral and gray are so pretty together, what a stunning card! I love how sharp the silver embossing looks against the dark background on your Wanderlust card. Beautiful work! (And I’m going to go take my Posca pens out of my rock painting supplies—it never occurred to me to use them on paper.)
