Altenew & Spellbinders

Big surprise this morning--got an email to sign up for my vaccine & my appointment is tomorrow!  In case I don't feel great afterwards, here are my latest 2 cards.  Hubby's granddaughter just got engaged, so gave me a good reason to pull out the January Spellbinders Small Die Kit.
The sentiment is Altenew.  I spritzed with shimmer spray & added glaze to the heart.  Hopefully they'll like it.  
I'm entering SSS Wednesday.  
I haven't used my Altenew floral dies in a long time, so I pulled out the Wild Rose 3D dies & used lots of scraps for the Altenew February Inspiration Challenge.  I brushed all the edges with Altenew inks & splattered with white gouache.  
A friend sent me the Altenew Watercolor Stripes vellum die cut which I attached to a soft stone panel.  The sentiment from Altenew Flower Vine was stamped in Versafine Clair Nocturne & I added some yellow gems from my stash.  I'm also entering TTTC101, Vellum, Stripes, Hugs.

Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.  If your blog address is in your profile or comment, I will visit you.

  1. A very elegant card for occasion Greta, sure they will love it.

    Good news about the jab as well, this side of the pond those having the Astra Zeneca jab appear to be reporting symptoms whereas not with the Pfizer one, but even then they are mild.

  12. Two very fun designs Greta, fun color combinations and flowers. I felt like I won the golden ticket when I was able to sign up for my shot and got it three weeks ago. Second one scheduled for March.
