Altenew October Challenge : Chocolate Delight

Hello Friends,

As you all know i just started my blog and am ready to take a plunge into challenges. So here i am !
I love the quality of Altenew stamps and decided to play along with their October Challenge.

I used their Hennah elements set for this card. Sentiment is from PTI.

Altenew Hennah

Hey friends,

I am still learning bogging but thought of sharing this card with you. So please bear with me and give your suggestions on how i can improve my blog design. 

Recently, i got my first stamp Hennah Elements from Altenew. The quality of stamp is superb and the big outline designs make colouring fun. I added some bright colors as i was in Diwali mood...!

I started off with making few masks.

I first stamped various images on scrap paper and fuzzy cut them to create masks. (I save all my masks along with the stamps, so it is easy to use them in future). I took 5"x 5.5" white card and arranged all the elements i wanted on it and took a picture with my phone for easy reference. 

I stamped various images from the set referring the picture i took (changed some arrangements while stamping... ;) ). I used Tombow markers to colour them.

I made 3 banners using white card stock with Memory Box banner die, colour them with Tombow markers and added some glitter glue for sparkle. I also used Papertreyink die to cut "happy" from a golden mirror sheet and glued it on the top of 5 x 5.5 panel. Also added sentiment using versafine black ink.  My base card is 5 x 7", top folding white card on which i glued coloured banners at the top.

I mounted the panel on the base card with foam tape to give extra dimension to it.  Added some enamel dots to finish it.

Hope you will like it! Thanks for visiting.

First post

This is my first post. I have created a birthday card using Wplus9 Pretty Peonies stamp set. My white base card is 5"x7".  I took a piece of aqua cardstock, positioned on base card and trimed. I took medium detail stamp form the set and stamped with aquamarine archival dye ink by ranger. I used same stamp with pistachio pigment ink(colorbox) and stamp once again over the aqua flowers. Added centres with dandelion yellow (memento). On aqua cardstock i used outline leaves cluster from the same set, stamped with versamark & embossed with white embossing powder. The leaves are colored with shades of green distress inks. On a pistagreen scrap piece i stamped largest outlined peony, embossed with white powder and colored with same green distress inks & fussy cut it. Aqua piece is glued on white card base while flower is popped on foam tape. Sentiment (Papertreyink) is white embossed on a black paper & popped with foam tape.
