Welcome to my blog, everyone! I’m so happy to be a part of Altenew’s September 2019 Release Blog Hop with all the talented card designers. ❤️ I’d like to thank the amazing Nathalie DeSousa for sending you over here. 🙂 If you are lost, the master list will be at the end of this post. Take a look at all the wonderful stamps, dies and stencils in this September Release. Scroll down to see how some of them were used to create handmade cards. 🙂


The Flower Garden is a beautiful stamp set that is so versatile. You can use different coloring materials to add life to the images or you can simply stamp the outline and create subtle, clean, feminine, and elegant cards.


For my first card, I stamped the different images of the Flower Garden stamp set all at the same time using the Misti stamping tool on a 4″ x 5.25″ pink cardstock using Versamark Ink then embossed with Altenew crisp white embossing powder. Edges were distressed using the paper distresser. White and pink cardstocks were trimmed to 2.25″ x 4″ panels and vellum was cut to 2.5″ x 4.25″. The Pressed leaf die was used to die cut both the vellum and the pink cardstock then glued on top of the white cardstock. The sentiment was stamped onto the pink CS and embossed using white embossing powder. Foam adhesives were used to create dimension. All the layers were mounted on a 5.5″ x 4.25″ white top folding CS.



The Faceted Stars stamp was stamped onto 2 watercolor papers using Versamark ink then embossed with rose gold embossing powder. Midnight violet and turquoise watercolor brush markers were used to color in certain areas of 1 embossed image. I made sure some triangles were darker than the others for added dimension. Coloring these patterns was so calming and addicting!!! 🙂

The other was left uncolored. The alpha mega die letter U was then used to die cut these embossed panels and the letters were switched for high contrast. Additional letter U was die cut from plain CS and layered to add more dimension. Sentiments were stamped on coordinating watercolored strips and adhered using foam squares.



I have been a big fan and get so much inspiration from amazing artists like Tae Eun and Jaycee Gaspar who both have superb coloring skills. Since alcohol markers are NOT my go-to coloring materials, I wanted to step outside my comfort zone and try them out this time. I first stamped the images onto white cardstock using Antique Linen distress ink for no-line coloring. After 30 minutes of coloring, I was ready to throw it out of the window!!! 😂 I started to lose details of the flower and it looked flat. Then I remembered Jaycee mentioning that he started out with the darkest color to mark where the shadows should be. So I colored using the darkest, then lighest then mid-tone alcohol markers and used the colored pencils after to add more detail. I also realized that you need a TON of patience cause this kind of coloring takes a lot of hours to finish especially for beginners like me. I just have to keep on practising until I’m comfortable with this method of coloring. 😊 Although I’m not too happy with how it turned out, I will still share this card with all of you. Any tips will be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much for the inspiration, Jaycee❤️

I used the gold string washi tape and a strip of gold cardstock to create borders for the card. The circle quilt cover die was used to cut 4 sheets of cardstock and stacked them on top of each other with adhesive to add dimension. The sentiment from the Garden Silhouette was stamped onto white CS using Versamark ink then heat embossed with rose gold embossing powder. Flowers were arranged then Press’n Seal was used to pick up all the diecuts and these were adhered using glue or foam squares.



I wanted to get an early start with my Christmas cards and the Modern Poinsettia made it easy. Because this will be mass-produced, I chose a simple card to replicate and just changed the color of the cardstocks.

The cardstocks were cut to 4″ x 5.25″. The flower was stamped using Versamark Ink then embossed with different embossing powders depending on the color that will match the cardstock. The image was covered with the mask then a second flower was stamped and embossed. Most often than not, there will be some blank space between the 2 stamped images where they overlap so I used the Zig embossing fine pen to draw the lines then embossed it once more. One more flower image was stamped and embossed followed by the sentiment. I couldn’t find my Altenew Fine Frames cover die 😥 so I just used 2 rectangle stax dies to die cut the matching cardstock to create a frame just to add more interest to the card front.



For this last card, I wanted to incorporate a number of Altenew stamps and dies. I used the flowers and leaves from the Happy Pomegranates Stamp set. I stamped these images on watercolor paper using Versamark Ink then embossed with Rose Gold embossing powder. For the flowers, I used the following watercolor brush markers– Midnight violet, Rubellite, Persian Blue and Purple Wine. For the leaves, I used the following: Turquoise, Sea Breeze, Lime, Limeade and Emerald. With these colors, I made a wash for my letter dies. The Layered Snowflakes Stars Cover dies A and B were used to cut out 2 panels. These were adhered onto a blue top folding A2 card.

The leaves and flowers were die cut and arranged at the bottom of the card. Adhesive and foam squares were used to give some dimension. The HAPPY letters were then die cut using the watercolor wash and 4 layers of plain cardstock then adhered on top of each other to create thickness. Happy Birthday sentiment was stamped using Versamark Ink then embossed with Rose Gold embossing powder.

    Are you serious girl?? I’m struggling to find out what is wrong with the colored card you shared and weren’t happy with! Coloring is not my strong point either but I’ve never come close to anything as pretty as yours!! It looks awesome as well as everything you created here. I was scrolling through your post thinking how many great ideas I was getting from all your creations! You keep on coloring girl!

    And yet another great release. Love all the projects made.

  • September 8, 2019 at 3:37 am

    I kept wondering what someone could do with the poinsettia stamp and here you make it look almost like spider webs, very nice.

  • September 8, 2019 at 5:16 am

    I think every one of your cards is fantastic. If you had not admitted that you were uncomfortable with the alcohol marker, I would never have know as your card is wonderful. That being said, thank you for admitting that even you artists have “weak” areas. It gives us “little people” hope.

    • September 9, 2019 at 8:15 am

      Awww… we all have weak areas, Carol. There are techniques that we gravitate to because we are comfortable doing but there are some that are our last choice because it really takes an effort to do. But the only way to get better is if you practice, right? 🙂 We are all in this together… to share what we learn and to inspire. Thank you so much for finding time to drop by. I truly appreciate your comments <3

  • September 8, 2019 at 5:43 am

    Beautiful, beautiful cards! Love all the fabulous embossing.

  • September 8, 2019 at 6:37 am

    Loved the pink “thinking” card AND the poinsettia variations. I think it’s the multi-layered frames that really catch my eye and bring such dimension to your work.

  • September 8, 2019 at 9:28 am

    Oh my goodness, Nenette!! Your cards are just so stunning! That first pink card is so so beautiful….a work of art! Thanks for sharing your awesome creativity with us!

  • September 8, 2019 at 9:01 pm
