I am in love with this feminine dress...isn't it gorgeous!?
I think made and re-made this card about 4 times before I was happy with it. I felt like I couldn't get it to look the way it did in my head- has that ever happened to you? Well anyway, I continued to play around with everything until I ended up with this:
After all of that work, I love how it turned out! First I stamped a Hero Arts map background stamp with grey ink on my card base, and covered it with vellum. Then, I stamped a bunch of elements from Altenew's Vintage Flowers, and die cut them with the coordinating dies. I tried my best to get the colors to match the inspiration dress.
Once it was all arranged the way I liked it, I adhered it to the card with foam tape. Lastly, I added the sentiment, which is from Altenew's Sketchy Cities America.

This was a very quick and easy card to put together. I used two images from Fresh Lemon Digital Stamps to create a background, and printed it onto textured cardstock. Next, I stamped a sentiment from Altenew's Baby Zoo set onto peach cardstock and mounted it to the card with foam tape. The only other thing it needed was a strip of grey cardstock!
My second card is a lot more technique-y (yes! I made two cards!). Using Photoshop, I created a striped background from the Watercolor Digital Paper and printed it out. Then, I went to work on the flower. I used an image from Succulent Clipart Silhouettes to make a cut file for my Silhouette Cameo. Once the pieces were cut from white cardstock, I mounted them onto a super thick piece of plastic and cut it out by hand. It looks so cool in real life! I then stamped the sentiment (from Fresh Freesia) with grey ink, and mounted everything to a peach card base.

Lastly, if you didn't know, Tasnim and I just released 9 new stamp sets for Altenew! I've been posting my projects over on the Altenew Blog, but figured I would re-post them here in case you haven't seen them yet :) I have been out of town and very busy (more grad school work and other projects! lol), so I sadly haven't posted all my cards using all of the sets yet. Hopefully I'll get the rest up within a week or so!
I'm usually not a fan of overly complicated/elaborate clothing, but I think this top looks fantastic with that simple skirt. Don't you agree?
I recently found a really pretty button while cleaning my craft/sewing room, and knew it had to find it's way onto my card somehow!
I watercolored the stripes on the front of the card, then stamped the sentiment (from Birthday Greetings) on top. The apothecary jar, from Clear and Simple Stamps, was the perfect place for my special button!
Please check out the fab creations from the DT, and have a happy Tuesday!
