Altenew September 2021 Inspiration Challenge

I'm not sure if I've entered the Altenew monthly challenges or not and if not I don't know why since I have so many Altenew stamps and dies.  Here's the photo for the September 2021 Inspiration Challenge.


I thought the colors would work perfectly for the Climber Flowers.  These dies make such beautiful flowers and leaves.


I inked up cardstock with CP inks in the pinks and greens, spritzed for some color variation and then cut all the pieces.  After glueing them together, I placed them on a panel embossed with the Altenew Organic Linen folder and added a heat embossed sentiment (which is actually on dark gray) from Altenew's Heartfelt Sentiments.

Just Us Girls #602 - Color Week

Nancy is our host for Color Week at Just Us Girls and the colors she has chosen are wonderful together.


What did I make?  You probably have a good guess.


Of course I made flowers.  My NBUS Altenew Cistus to be exact.  First I ink blended CP inks in Tutti Fruiti and Tiki Torch on my main panel.   On another panel I used Tiara going from light to dark to cut the Cistus layers.  With all that bright color, I thought the sentiment from Altenew's Statement Flowers worked well.

What do you think of when you see those colors?  I wonder what the Design Team thought of?  Why not check out their cards and that of our guest designer Loll Thompson to see and get inspired to join the challenge.

The Flower Challenge #60 - Reminder

There's still time to make a card for The Flower Challenge using this prompt:


Here's my card.


I used Altenew's Anenome Coronaria, a layered set, stamping them with Altenew ink.  The background has been embossed with the SU Subtle Texture folder.   For this card I used green for the leaves which is allowable for our challenge along with other neutrals.  If in doubt, please check the challenge rules.

Thanks for dropping by.  Be sure to check out what the design team has for your inspiration on the blog.

CAS Mix-Up September 2021

Autumn colors is a perfect theme for CAS Mix-Up and using watercolors is a fun way to show off those colors. 


I  gold heat embossed the PTI Botanical Blocks sunflower and colored it with Zigs, adding an  embossed sentiment from Sunny Studios.  Since two of these images fit on one piece of Bristol I did another one.


I used lighter colors for the petals but kept the leaves the same.  I also changed out the sentiment for another one from Sunny Studios.  I have a few people who could use a lift and these cards will hopefully do just that.

Thanks for dropping by.  I love it when you do and even more when you leave a comment.
