It's my turn to do Stamp Focus!

s

I was assigned to share multiple cards with you over Altenew with Simple Fruits. This is actually not a difficult task since this set has so many gorgeous fruit images designed by my dear DT mate/friend May Sukyong Park.

I wanted to show off  some of the yummy fruit in one card. I made inlaid/partial die with 4 in a row and then highlighted the orange on the side!This card is not hard to do at all. All you need is some planning ahead and you can assemble it like a puzzle.

My next card is about GRAPES!

I can't decide the type of grapes I love more--purple or green ones. So I stamped BOTH!! 😀

With the Simple Fruits matching die, bunching up the two together seem like the thing to do!

I love how the matching die can help making the design seamless! There is no overlapping! In this case, I made the pear into one piece as they surely fit the theme! As for the background, I applied two Altenew Metallic Shimmer Sprays: Caramel Toffee and Warm Sunshine.

The Altenew Gold Foil Card Stock completes the polished and perfect look. This can be used for  weddings, anniversaries or just because... type of cards.
I want to create a warm and fuzzy one. So, this is it.

Stencil, Spray and Emboss

Hello friends!
Stencil, Spray and Emboss--that pretty much sum up how I created my card today.

for you #1

 That Halftone Stencil is easily my new favorite. I can't enough of it! With Altenew's Coloring Layering Inks, creating a gradient background can not be any easier.


The beauty about the Hydrangea Stamp is you can add little or more details as you go along. I first embossed and then I stamped in colors for the finer details. It looks amazing, but it really takes little effort.  I hand draw the stem with Green Wink of Stella
and toned it down with the Clear Wink of Stella. I think I managed it ok!! And oh...I did use the Altenew Glimmer Sprays for my base before white-embossing. I love those sprays!

for you #2
