I do have a few cards I made that I’d like to share with you first.


I actually had some time to play in my stamp room this morning and I knew I wanted to pull out some of the beautiful Altenew florals. I also wanted to increase my stash of cards on hand and I wanted to keep my creations simple and flat for mailing, so that’s just what I did. I made 4 cards using Altenew’s Dahlia Blossoms.

Gray Duo 2 640x477

The first two I made are gray and white – very simple.

Only the sentiments are pop-dotted up and with THIN dots.

Gold Duo 2 640x421

And the second two are a bit fancier in gold and kraft. They were just as easy to make, they just look a little more elegant with the gold foil.

Gray Collage 640x391

Stamps: Dahlia Blossoms by Altenew (florals)

Floral Shadow by Altenew (sentiments)

Dahlia Blossoms is a multi-step stamp, made to be stamped in 3 layers. For this card I only used the outline layer, and I LOVE it used this way! Simple and clean.

Ink: VersaFine Smokey Gray (on white cardstock)

VersaMark embossed with Super Fine Embossing Powder – White (on gray cardstock)

Gold Collage 640x335

Stamps: Dahlia Blossoms by Altenew (florals and Bloom sentiment)

Floral Shadow by Altenew (sentiment)

Paper: Gold Kraft Foil 6×6 by Bazzill

Bazzill Mirror Cardstock – Gold

Ink: Delicata – Golden Glitz

For this floral design I used the middle detailed stamp of the three-step stamps. I really like how it looks like a vintage tapestry design. I used the Golden Glitz Delicata to stamp and it is just stunning. This is an AMAZING ink. It can be stamped and used as is with a beautiful shine OR it can be embossed. It’s a favorite ink of our entire Design Team.

Gold CU 400x575

The above photos don’t really capture just how pretty the Delicata ink is. Thus this photo, just trying to get a hint of the glimmer and glitz of the Delicata. This is just straight stamping, no embossing. LOVE how easy it is! It’s so gorgeous!

Other items used on these cards:

Paper: Coredinations Heavyweight Smooth White Cardstock

Colored Cardstock

Dies: Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics B

Spellbinders A Gilded Life Petite Pennants

Spellbinders Classic Squares

Adhesives: EZ Runner, 3D Foam Squares

All items available at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, as linked.

My goal for 2017 is to send a home made card once a month to my friend’s mother who is now in a nursing home so am on the lookout for lots of inspiration.

  134. Beth Williams says:

    I have been looking for the “right” gold ink for years & I finally found it! The Gold Delicata is perfect-I’ve bookmarked it so I can buy some. I was way behind on my Christmas cards this year.

    The cards you presented here are beautiful, Sharon! Thank you for making them simple for me! I don’t have much time to be creative with my cards anymore because of caring for my elderly mother. However, in spite of this time-consuming event, it’s humbling that my husband helps me greatly. As a result, creating wedding, baby, Christmas, and sympathy cards are priorities when the need arises. Having many CAS ideas are the way to accomplish this priority! Thanks again, and blessings to you and your staff in 2017!
