Altenew | Hello Sunshine Floral Wreath Card. November Release Blog Hop + Giveaway (Now Closed)

Hello there! Thank you for stopping by to help celebrate Altenew November 2016 Release (more about this release and blog hop below). There are many great stamp sets to play with and I am anxious to share a card I made using one of them – Hello Sunshine. This is a bigger 6×8 stamp set with stunning floral images that are just perfect for coloring.

CARD DETAILS

I made this card at a crafty retreat a few weeks ago right in the middle of the Coloring Challenge by Kathy Racoosin; naturally I couldn’t resist trying a new coloring medium and spending a few minutes/hours coloring. I used individual images from the Hello Sunshine stamp set and formed them into a beautiful floral wreath.

I did very little masking – I didn’t bring a lot of supplies with me to the retreat, so I had to use what I had and that was washi tape – so I masked my images with the help of washi.

The coloring medium I’ve been wanting to try is Prismacolor Pencils; I used them here to color these florals. Fantastic pencils and I’ll probably invest in a set for myself at the end of the year, that would make a nice Christmas gift. These pencils are soft and easy to blend and don’t take a lot of time to learn how to use. A definite must have!

After I finished my coloring I stamped Hello Sunshine in the middle and added light gray pencil shading on the inside of the wreath. When I got home from the retreat I heat embossed You Make My World Brighter in white embossing powder onto black cardstock and foam mounted it onto my panel using black foam adhesive. I also trimmed my panel down to 4 x 5 1/4″ and foam mounted it onto a gray card base for a pop of dimension. I finished the card by adhering several clear droplets and by adding white gel pen dots here and there.

I have another card I made using new stamps and I’ll be sharing it in the next few weeks on my blog, so stay tuned!

    1. I love the vibrant colors, and the sentiment is perfect for it. I’ve used just a few Prismacolors at a friend’s a few years. Neither of us knew what we were doing, so the results weren’t great; however, I’ve seen such amazing results achieved with them that I’m hoping to give them another try one of these days. I love wreaths and you chose perfect elements for it.

    1. What a very pretty card!!! MY niece let me try hers when we were camping this summer. I really liked them . So now I am saving up so I can buy my own!

    1. What a bright and uplifting card! It’s hard to imagine this card not bringing a broad smile to anyone who received it!

    1. Wow. The more I see the Hello Sunshine stamps in use the more I want them. The design team is so creative!

    1. I love the vivid colors on your card and the way you created a wreath with the stamps. I love the Prismacolor pencils! Very nice!

    1. I love the colors of your card. I haven’t used Prismacolor pencils but I really would like to get a set. This card makes me feel good. I would like to get this card in the mail.

    1. BEAUTIFUL card Yana!!!
      LOVE your ELEGANT wreath, CHEERY colours and sentiment, Hello Sunshine is one of my favourite sentiments to use, so it is definitely on my MUST-HAVE list!!!
      THANK YOU for sharing and INSPIRING … I confess that I do have some Prismacolor pencils and KNOW that I NEED to practice more, using a much lighter hand to build up the colours 🙂

    1. I always love seeing what you have created,Yana! Your cards are always beautiful and inspiring! Love that you colored with pencils, my favorite method! Thanks for sharing your creativity!

    1. I love the way you used the products and your designs. The clear raindrops set off the design.

    1. I love what you have come up with for this Holiday kit. I’m so excited to get my kit. I love the SSS kit of the months but this one I couldn’t pass up. Now to cut out some time to finish up my Christmas cards.

    1. Wow! What a beautiful job you did with the Prismacolor pencils;on this lovely new Altenew stamp! When I first looked at this vibrant, upbeat card I thought it must be colored with Copic markers. I thought that because of the brilliant colors.

      I love to use my pencils. I think you should definitely treat yourself to the set. I bring them when I travel to a doctor’s appointment or on a trip with a small coloring book or stamped images and turn them into cards when I get home. After looking at art shared on Kathy Racoosin’s 30 Day Coloring Challenge, I really want to use my set on Kraft colored paper! Wait until you see how the color really POPS right off that paper!

      I love these new Altenew stamps! This set is my 2nd favorite in this release! It is so much fun and upbeat. The “Adore” flowers really tug on my heart strings the strongest this time! I’ll be saving up for both sets.

      Thank you to you and to Altenew for this fun hop and for the opportunity to be blessed with some stunning floral stamps and such heartfelt sentiments!

      He-IS-Able!

    1. Your card is beautiful! At first, I just assumed you had used Copics to color your flowers. I was surprised that they were actually done with colored pencils! I’ve been trying to use my colored pencils, too, so it’s wonderful to have your inspiration! Thank you!
