 I then layered up gold foil paper and outline die.
 
HB -002 
 
 This truly is a fun way to create. I love using pattern paper because everything is matched in colors and designs are cohesive that way.

 The sentiment (ephemera) from the card kit makes this easy to complete.

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Queen of the Lilies Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 Happy December, my friends!

It's time to share another exciting Altenew Build-A-Flower with you.
We are celebrating this month's Build-A-Flower Queen of the Lilies with a blog hop!

Build-A-Flower: Queen of the Lilies Product Description: This stamp set features 8 layers to create gorgeously detailed Queen of the Lilies flowers. You will also find a couple of leaves with an outline layer, a full-color layer, and a color shading layer for beautiful stamping possibilities. Stamp one of the sweet sentiments to finish your card or layout.

 
If you arrive from the blog of Jenny Colacicco, you are in the right place.
If not, come and join the fun hop for ideas and inspiration. 

This Queen of Lilies is like no other. Everything about this stamp set is divine!
Altenew-BAF Queen of the Lilies-Buffalo Plaid 3D Embossing Folder-Sparkle & Shine Crisp Dye Ink Release Bundle

I chose to use shades of blue to compliment the gold and white. I think the color combination gives the design an allure of sophistication.

Altenew-BAF Queen of the Lilies-Buffalo Plaid 3D Embossing Folder-Sparkle & Shine Crisp Dye Ink Release Bundle -002

I relied heavily on the Enchanted Gold Pigment Ink. By stamping it with MISTI, I was able to achieve a very defined gold outline. You can absolutely gold-emboss the outlines, too! 

Altenew-BAF Queen of the Lilies-Buffalo Plaid 3D Embossing Folder-Sparkle & Shine Crisp Dye Ink Release Bundle -001
 
To make the background more interesting, I partially dry-embossed the white card-stock with Buffalo Plaid 3D Embossing Folder. 
Ding---> you get way more mileage if you simply use just part of an embossing folder! You can change up so much more by adding touches of textures. This partial use of EF doesn't overwhelm the overall design also. It's a win-win! 😀

Last but not least, the embellishment can elevate the design even more. The thin strip of Navy Gold Washi TapeGold Metallic Thread and gold sequins truly take this card to a new level!

A QUICK Christmas Card

 Hello friends!

I am popping in to share a quick Christmas card! Yesterday I found out my local library is calling a card drive of 1000. The collected and signed cards will be hand delivered to the local seniors. How awesome is that? 

With my father-in-law's passing this summer, I now no longer visit his retirement home and give out Christmas cards to the staff to show our appreciation. This library card will be the way of sharing my handmade cards. I manged to find 30 Christmas cards to donate so far...

season's greetings

 This card, as you can see, doesn't require any stamping or die-cutting. 

season's greetings -001

 The paper, ephemera and thicker are all part of the Joyful Christmas Card Kit.

Joyful Christmas

 This set of cards from the Poinsettia die set (included in the kit) are my favorite.3 cards -001

  The pattern paper and ephemera are absolutely yummy!

Joyful Christmas #1

Some of the older Cart Kit are now marked down to $25 (regular price is $55).
