Altenew Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello and welcome to Altenew Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop!

As you may know Altenew is hosting a Celebrating Parents Card Drive for a great cause. Altenew is collecting cards for seniors who are in nursing homes or shelters to show them they are loved, celebrated, and honored. If you missed the post on Altenew blog, please click here. Today's blog hop is to inspire you to join in this awesome card drive. 

If you arrived here from the amazingly talented Jaycee Gasper's blog, you're right on track. If you want to start from the beginning of the blog hop, please visit Altenew Card Blog.

I've made a card using Extra Special stamp and die set. This set is one of the stamp sets, 20% of the profits (until Father’s Day, June 16th, 2019) of which, will be donated to the Food Bank of Central New York to support seniors in need.


I started off by creating the background. I stamped the Extra Special stamp three times on a teal cardstock panel in Emerald ink and colored them using Prismacolor colored pencils. I used light pink, white along with various shades of teal colors. After the coloring was done, I ink blended the bottom part of the background panel in Lagoon and Emerald to make the area darker.



I stamped and heat embossed one more Extra Special image on a separate heavyweight white cardstock in Copper embossing powder. This time I colored the image using metallic acrylic paint in iridescent white, silver, gold and copper. After the paint was dry I cut it using the coordinating die.


On the front of a white cardbase I ink blended Vintage Photo and Antique Linen DI and foam mounted the background panel on it after I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from the same stamp set in white. 


I added the floral cluster onto the card using some foam tape and finished off the card with three yellow rhinestones on the center of the flowers. 


That's it from my side! I hope I was able to inspire you with my card today!
