A few things...

In cased you missed them:

  • Last week a new challenge went up over at Ellen Hutson- a Mix It Up with Altenew!  Here's a little peek of my card:

  • I also made a new card and posted a video on the Altenew Blog. Check that out here!



Hello there!  Today we have a brand new Runway Inspired Challenge with an amazing sponsor...Winnie and Walter!   Not only are they sponsoring, but they also donated stamps and dies for the team to work with :)

This outfit is just SO "J. Crew" to me- preppy, but with some added pizzazz.  I love how the sparkly dress looks peeking out from the classy coat!  

Of course I wanted to incorporate this into my card.  I used Winnie and Walter's In a Word: Hi Cutaway to cut that fabulous sentiment, and used a combination of four different glitters behind it.   As a nod to the trio of buttons on the coat I  added three large adhesive pearls.

I hope that you visit the DT....especially the new addition to our team, Heather! :)

Hey folks, I forgot to tell you that I posted a card and video the other day on the Altenew blog.  I'd love it if you checked it out! :)


New Altenew Inks!

Just wanted to let you know...I have some projects up on the Altenew blog to go along with our release of 12 ink colors!  You should head over there ASAP, since there are gift cards being given away! :)



This morning a brand spankin' new Runway Inspired Challenge went live, and I hope you take the time to play along! Check out this amazing inspiration:

Oh gosh, can I say again that I want to wear this?  I say it almost every challenge, but I reeeeeealy mean it this time!  And it really isn't my style at all, but that wouldn't stop me  :)

I first stamped and embossed the Sketchy Rose onto black cardstock, then contemplated how I would color it in.  I wanted the color to be vibrant against the black background, so I turned to acrylics.  

Please visit the rest of the DT, and have a great day!

Altenew Sneak

Hey guys, I know I haven't been around much lately, but wanted to let you know that I have a cool card up over on the Altenew Blog!



I adore this gown!  The gold looks like flakes of gold leaf, and if you look carefully there are these cool rows of gold studs which trim the bodice and down the seams in the skirt.  So cool!

My original vision for this card had a black background, but after much hemming and hawing I went ahead with this:

Both stamps are from Altenew.  To incorporate gold, I embossed and then watercolored the main image, and I also applied embossing powder to these little adhesive circle things to match.  

Once again, some of the gals are taking a break.  But here are the ladies who are posting this morning:
