Altenew + Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration blog hop


Hello everyone! Today our Altenew DT is teaming up with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L team to bring you a fun collaboration blog hop! If you came here from Judy's blog, then you are on the right track. Otherwise, go back to Altenew Blog and start from there, as you won't want to miss anything!

For today’s hop I created a simple card using fabulous Beautiful Day set from November release along with Gold Pigment Powder:

thank you1

I stamped my images using VersaMark ink and dusted the gold powder over the stamped areas using a brush. Then I used another clean, soft brush to remove all traces of powder from the card. The “thank you” sentiment comes from the Baby Zoo stamp set and it's mounted with 3D foam squares.

But that's not all! In addition, one winner will be chosen from the comments left on this blog post and will receive a $30 gift certificate!


Now onto my projects. My first card features the Beautiful Lady set. I wanted to keep it monochromatic so I stamped flowers in black and coloured them very lightly.

best wishes


For my next project I used beautiful flowers from the Oriental Orchid set to create simple place cards. First I created blank cards from cut and folded white cardstock. I painted them with a gold glitter and added names created with a label maker. Then I stamped flowers in black, fussy cut them and attached them to my place cards.
