Simple mixed media card and more!

How to use Embossing paste to make a simple mixed media card

For this first card, I used the new Altenew Palette Knifes and some of the Altenew inks to colour some embossing paste for a fun simple mixed media card. Smoosh the 3 pink inks from the Spring Bouquet mini cube set and add some Altenew embossing paste to these. 

Mix the paste and colour with the new Palette knives before adding a line of each colour to a white card panel.  As the paste is wet, sprinkle a little bit of gold embossing powder to the paste in between each colour and set the panel to dry. 

Once the panel is dry, heat set the embossing powder and add to a cardbase. Next, use the new All About Thanks Word die set to add a ‘Thanks’ sentiment to the front, cutting the shadow out of vellum. Finish with a small sentiment to complete the sentiment.

Lastly, add a few Cherry Blossom Enamel dots to embellish the card. 

Cartoon Tulips: create an elegant card with a cartoon stamp

For this card, I used the beautiful new Herringbone Tiles 3D embossing folder to create a tone-on-one background. I added a little gold metallic paint splatter with the Metallic Watercolour set for a little interest. 

For the flower, first,die-cut the Cartoon Tulips coordinating die out of white card. I find it easy to die-cut first and then align the stamps up on the die-cut especially with stems which can move out of place. 

The Cartoon Tulips were stamped in Stone Blue, Cove Blue and Juniper Mist. For the Stem and leaves, I used Sage, Eucalyptus and Spruce. A gold heat embossed sentiment from the stamp set was added and the card was finished with a few gold sequin discs. 

No-line pencil colouring with Blossom & Bloom stamp

When I saw the Blossom & Bloom stamp set, I knew I needed to colour it in. Start off stamping this in embossing ink onto Tone Taned Gray paper from Strathmore. To colour with pencils, make sure the pencil is nice and sharp for detail and to blend well. 

I used my polychromos pencils to colour the image in, going to a Sunflower look with yellows and oranges for a bright colourful look.  I also stamped the image a couple more times in embossing ink for some tone-on-tone pattern. 

To finish the card off, I added a gold heat embossed sentiment from the stamp set and embellished it with a few lemon yellow sequins. 

New tools from Altenew!

As I mentioned there are some fabulous new tools in this release. The first up is the Crafters Showcase: Small Ink Blending Tool Stackable Storage. This can fit two of each of the small ink blending tools in each compartment. However, you can fit more than just that, I also added some of my thin washi tapes and mini ink cubes from Altenew too!

These also have a new Mini Blending brush set including four brushes, all the same size. These are great for delicate blending for stencils like the think brick wall or for adding colour in small areas. 

Add as I have already mentioned Altenew have brought out their own palette knives, which are great to use with their embossing paste.
