From this close-up, you can see the new ink glistening. 
To accentuate the gold in the background "A Walk in the Woods", I also stamped part of the petals in Enchanted Gold Pigment Ink.

 I decided to die cut the center with Halftone Squares and made the focal image pop even more.

 The ink and shine are absolutely splendid! It is quite rich, juicy and also dries very quickly.

 2. featured products: Dare to Dream, Ombre Alpha
 Altenew-DareToDream-OmbreAlpha-Virginia#1

These tile-like images are fun to stamp with.
You can stamp them as it (which I did here) OR you can layer two or more images!

I stamped "U ROCK" from Ombre Alpha. How cool is that set?
Can you see the rainbow color possibility?

Altenew-DottedSwirlsDebossingCoverDie-OrnateFoliage-FancyGretings-Virginia#1

Let's talk about the background first... the de-bossing cover die is DIVINE! I ran it through grey pattern paper from Essential Rock Collection and it is stunning.

I then stamped and die cut the Ornate Foliage in Sweet Moments Paper Pack.
For the perfect sentiment, I reached for "sending hugs" from Fancy Greetings.

 4. featured products: Everlasting Happiness Stamp Set Altenew-EverlastingHappiness-Virginia#1

The gold-embossed image on vellum speaks volumes! I took out the Altenew Artist Markers (Set D and Set E) and colored the back of the flowers and you get this elegant look. It doesn't get any more simpler than that.
Altenew-EverlastingHappiness-Virginia#2

For the sentiment, I stamped "Everlasting Happiness Together" in Essential Rock Collection.
This card is perfect for anniversary, engagement, weddings... etc.

5. featured products: Fine Bouquet Die , Fancy Greetings Stamp Set 
Altenew-FineBouquetDie-FancyGreetings-Virginia#1

How exquisite is this delicate Fine Bouquet Die?
 I only needed to die cut it with the Gold Foil Card Stock and it looks like a million bucks!

Altenew-FineBouquetDie-FancyGreetings-Virginia#2

I colored the images with the Artist Brush Markers on Bristol paper and made the colors as vibrant as possible.

I am stumped! Usually I can always pick a favorite, but this is time I have three. The debossed cover die will be going on my Altenew list.
I love the debossed card, and both of the gold embossed cards. I always love your cards that incorporate vellum! The colored vellum flowers are so elegant.

Teri S. said...

Virginia, you've used my favourite stamp set, the Ornate Foliage, to create two wonderful cards. The Everlasting Happiness stamp set is fast becoming number 2 in my favourite category & your card is so very elegant & I love how the colours show through the vellum so beautifully. Thanks for all your inspiration.

Lisa Byers said...

A great of array of beautiful cards. Wonderful examples of Altenew’s new products. Love the colors and designs. Thank you for sharing your inspiration with us.

I can't decide which one I like better the "Sending Hugs" card or your use of the vellum on the Ornate card! All so beautiful.

Carmela said...

Amazing work, Virginia! I love how you have combined the different sets in your creations. Gorgeous colors!!

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

mumster said...

Beautiful cards. Was glad to see another way of using the tile squares. My favorite card though is the gray and yellow. Loved the debossing die used on the striped paper, and loved that the flowers are not completely colored in .

Christine said...

Rozy said...

Very beautiful cards. My favorite is the Everlasting Happiness on vellum. What an elegant look. I have to try this! Thanks so much for all this lovely inspiration!

Jenniferk said...

All of your cards are so beautiful!. My favourite are the 2 cards you created using the Ornate Foliage Stamp set. The third card you created is my very favourite, I just love the grey and yellow together and the Dotted Swirls Debossing cover die background looks gorgeous. For your first card I think the way you used the new Altenew pigment gold ink on the background A Walk in the Woods and on the petals of the Ornate Foliage for your first looks amazing. Thank you for all of the wonderful inspiration!
