Hi everyone!

Today I have a card that is not exactly a card. I’ll explain, I wanted to share something fun, also with beautiful results, that I found out when playing with dies. At the same time, I wanted to show my appreciation to Altenew for choosing one of my cards once again… so, this non-card was born. I gathered a previously colored alcohol ink background, a small piece of watercolor paper, the necessary sentiments and a few die cut roses from Altenew Rose Filament Die.

 

 

“But where is the fun part”, you’ll ask… if you take a good look, the roses are positioned like if they were a clip, they aren’t adhered. “But where is the fun part”, you’ll ask one more time… the fun part is that you can use most of the roses in this set as bookmarks! Some are perfect for corners, while others look wonderful on top, or side of pages. With patience, your library will look like a garden :)!

 

I’m entering the Altenew September Inspiration Challenge to share my findings, but please don’t count my entry for the prize drawing.

 

 

Thank you for stopping by.


Other news!

 

In case you don’t know, I love mixed media, eco style or other forms of arts and crafts, as much as I love making clean (or not so clean) cards. In June, while wandering the internet, I came across the Craft Stamper blog, where there was an Art Call in the Ready Set Stamp category, dedicated to Autumn. I decided to submit a card and after a few days, I was so happy when I received an email from the wonderful Trish Latimer, Editor of CS magazine, asking whether I could send my card for publication.

 

 

The October issue is here, full of fabulous works, step by step tutorials, techniques, Meet the Designer feature… and “somewhere over the rainbow” there is my little card “wink” :). Here is a closeup:

 

 

If you wish to peruse the Craft Stamper magazine, there are several options available:

To get a copy of the magazine then it’s www.craftstamper.com to buy  subscriptions, www.mags-uk.com for single print copies, digital copies from www.pocketmags.co.uk

Overseas subscriptions are available too!

 

There are regular Ready Set Stamp calls in the Craft Stamper blog. Maybe you could be published too…

 

Have a wonderful day!
