Altenew | May 2016 Release Blog Hop. Good Endings card featuring Sentiments - Beautiful Quotes and Floral - Majestic Bloom

Altenew | May 2016 Release Blog Hop. Good Endings

Hello friends! This post is a part of Altenew May 2016 Release Blog Hop (more on that below).

Whenever I make cards (no matter the occasion) I prefer using quotes instead of simple sentiments. Luckily, Altenew has a few sets with beautiful quotes and today they are releasing an additional one called “Sentiments – Beautiful Quotes“.

Like this project? Pin it and save for later!

For the card I’m featuring today I stamped “What Really Counts Are Good Endings, Not Flawed Beginnings” in black ink directly onto Spicy Yogurt card base. I think this is such a true and beautiful quote and I can see using it often on encouragement cards.

I am also featuring one of the new multi-layer (or color layering) floral stamp sets – “Floral – Majestic Bloom“. Its a large 6×8” set that allows you to stamp one large stunning flower and a few leaves.

The flower was created by first heat embossing its outline in Brass embossing powder and then stamping the layers (they were all double stamped with the help of MISTI using inks from the Cool Summer Night set). I used the same approach for the leaves, as for the colors I went with lightest gray and lightest green.

I also added one of the stunning Antique Trims to the top and bottom part of my card and embellished it using clear sequins and drops.
