I was planning to post these cards yesterday but appointments & errands took up most of the day and today I am battling a migraine. However I did finish off the 2nd card so I could post the set.
With my To-Do list including finishing up class projects, these cards were from the 4th class of the Craft Your Life Retreat last month, where I also had a bad migraine & didn’t finish my classes. I still have at least a half dozen more cards to finish from this retreat but since they focus on the Seasonal Blooms stamp/die/stencil set I may spread them out a bit. As pretty as the set is, I’ve already made many cards from the set. So I may start mixing in some other Altenew stamp sets.
For this set of cards, we created 2 identically colored card bases with the stencil set. The first one just has an embossed sentiment. The 2nd one has a watercolored background, regular stamped sentiment & then was embossed to “step it up”. I used a lattice embossing folder. Originally we were supposed to use the embossing folder that matches the stamps but it doesn’t line up. This was Altenew’s 1st Craft Your Life set & they have already corrected the problem for the 2nd set that released. This was my favorite color combo from the retreat classes. I broke out from the suggested class colors & did my own colors.
Have a Great Thursday!
