Altenew Sakura Blossom Release + Giveaway!

 Hello Everyone, welcome to Altenew Sakura Blossom Release!

The Sakura blossom is a lovely Japanese flower, and is known as a cherry blossom in some parts of the world. "Sakura" is derived from the Japanese word for "bloom" - "saku." In the United States, tourists travel to our capital, Washington D.C., to see the flowers bloom at the annual cherry blossom festival. This stamp set features layered cherry blossoms and leaves, and the accompanying die have score details to help you create 3D flowers.

To begin my card, I first die-cut the Sakura Blossom die-cut and then distressed each one. Then for the center of the flower cut the center-die-cut to fit in inside of the small sakura blossom.

Next, I distressed the background with Distress Inks and splattered it with water using paint brush.
I also splattered it with gold watercolor ink from Gansai Tambi Starry Colors.

Then, I stamped one of the sentiment with versamark ink and heat set it with gold embossing powder. Next, I added the Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to finish off the card.

The Sakura Blossom stamps and dies are now available for purchase at Altenew Store.
I hoped you enjoyed!

 Hello Everyone, welcome to Pretty Pink Posh's 4th Birthday! For today's project I used Birthday Friends Stamp set and Birthday Friends Die set.
 For this card I also used the Stitched Notes die for the background after distressing the background with Twisted Citron and Tattered Rose Ink pad. Next, I stamped the images and colored them with Copic markers, then die-cut. The sentiment is also from the same set Birthday Friends stamp set. Then, I also used the new Spring Bloom Sequins which you will love :)
 Here's just another look.

For this project I used the cute set Birthday Scene stamp set. I stamped the image on a white cardstock and color with Copic makers. Then distressed the bottom part with Cracked Pistachio Dye Ink for interest in the card.

 I also added some Sparkling Clear Confetti Mix to finish the card.
I hope you enjoyed!

To begin I first distressed my white cardstock with Papertrey Ink Dye inks in Hibiscus Bursts, Hawaiian Shores, and Spring Moss. Then die-cut using the smaller tag from Scallop Square Tag dies. Then, added some ink splatters using October Afternoon Sprinklers in Paper Doily. I also added red gold and white gold from Gansai Tambi Starry Colors
