Virginia's Guest Design (Week 4)

Hello, Altenew friends! How times flies when you are having fun! It is my last week here at Altenew ALREADY! It's been a blast to say the least.

Let's get to today's topic: "Mix Them Up". As we collect and accumulate more stamp sets, we often just pick one set and create from there. Well, today's post is prompting you to be the matchmaker for your stamps. I mixed my Altenew stamps and was so pleased with my matching-making. After seeing my examples, you will know what I mean...

wishing you luck, peace and happiness

The Ori Kami and Hennah Elements CAN be such a lovely combo together. The vines provide a great background for the bird. And never underestimate the smallest stamp from Hennah Elements. See those tiny dots? They sure packed a punch.


Here is a closer look at this set Label is one of the most versatile sentiment sets- EVER!

Missing You

By stamping the multiple sentiments in one large masked heart, your message is loud and clear.

I played some more and mixed them up even further! Painted Flowers, Label love, Hennah Elements... Sure, why not!? What I love about Label Love sentiment is that they look EXACTLY like the Dymo Tape. They are not just limited to black!
hi hello how R U
I got even more creative with Label Love by using the back side of the stamps. The various lengths of stamps in Label Love are perfect for color blocking with Sketchy Cities America. Since it is such a colorful design, embellishments were not needed! I think it makes a great masculine one layer card!
Just for you
I also like how this feminine one layer turned out! Painted Flowers + Label Love = LOVE!

Are you getting the idea about my "matchmaking"? Isn't it fun to mix them up? I want to conclude my post with a happy card with Painted Flowers.
Happy Day
It truly is a JOY to share my Altenew projects with you. I want to thank Tasnim and Jennifer for inviting me to guest design this month. These two gifted card-makers and now stamp designers have really taken stamp designs to the next level. I am eagerly waiting for the next Altenew release!

I wish you all a happy day. Thanks for stopping by!

    Wow Virginia! All the cards are fabulous, but the first and last ones are my absolute favorites, and the branches in the first one is really eye catching!
