Altenew Celebrating Parent's Card Drive Blog Hop




Hello everyone! Welcome to Altenew Celebrating Parent's Blog Hop! You should have come from amazing Kathy Racoosin, but if not please start at the Altenew blogToday I am showcasing four different projects for this event.



For my first card I used Best Dad stamp set and Best Dad coordinating die set. I combined the light grey cardstock with Watercolor Stripes Cover Die and Create-a-Wreathe Die set. I die cut the oval out of glitter cardstock and glued them onto my panel.

Next, I stamped the images from Best Dad stamp set, colored them with Copic Markers and die-cut with Best Dad Coordinating die set. Lastly I've added the leaves from Wings of Hope stamp set to finished my card.



For my next card I used Gorgeous Winter Rose stamp set. First, I stamped the flowers and leaves with Altenew inks on watercolor paper. 


Then I took my wet paintbrush and went over them with water to blend them and give them a watercolored look and die cut the images with Winter Rose coordinating die set. 



Then I watercolored the background with light beige inks and foam mounted the images on top of my panel. 



For the sentiment I used Love from Script Words Die set.




For my third card I decided to make a vintage look. 



I stamped the flowers from Wildflower Garden stamp set on watercolor paper using Altenew inks and blend them with clean water to give them a watercolored look. 



Next, I blended some beige ink over my flowers and splattered with paint.








For my last card I used Wings of Hope stamp set. I stamped the images with Altenew inks and die cut with Wings of Hope coordinating die set



Next, I blended some pink ink in the center of my panel and splattered with water. I decide to add two gold heat embossed branches from Forever and a Day stamp set on my card for more intersting look. 


Next, I foam mounted the flowers on top of my panel and added clear sequins to finished my card.

  38. Oh my gosh, I know your only the 3rd one on the hop but boy, you made a lot of cards! Good on you!
    The first one reminds me so much of my dad and that makes me so sad. My dad died last year but he was a fixer upper and he created things out of wood and leather. He had a work shop down in our basement where he did everything. He shaved everyday with a razor and he drove for a long time and had tons of keys on his keychain. He also had a tool box, a few actually and loads of tools. This would have been so good for him if he was alive.
    The roses you did and colored so pretty would be so good for my mom as her name is Rose. I might have to try what you did with your ink. It looks so pretty! I love flowers!
    I love the way the Your In My Prayers card looks and how it looks like watercolors. It's so pretty and I really like those flowers. I love Altenews flower stamps!
    I don't have a die cutter so I couldn't make your last card but it's so pretty and pink! My nieces favorite color is pink.
    Thank you for showing us your pretty and colorful cards and for giving us the chance to win something.

  46. Wow! Your cards lovingly capture my parents to a T! My dad used the same things as you've pictured in your first card while my mom was a florist. The beautiful floral design of the second card remind me of her They both taught me the beauty of prayer (3rd card) and shared a lifelong journey (4th design) of love together for over 55 years.

  71. All of these cards are gorgeous (I really enjoy your color choices, in particular), but I think my favorite is the Winter Rose card. The watercolor effect is so lovely and soft, but the stamping gives it just enough hard edges to really make it pop. Such beautiful cards and fabulous inspiration. Thanks for sharing!
