Altenew Beautiful Day Stamp Set Clare Charvill
A very happy Friday afternoon to you.  Not sure how its been with you but it's been another washout of a week here, well moth really.  Let's hope it picks up in July lol!!! and it's not tipping down when I drive down the M1 to Scotch Lodge Farm in the morning for the second in our two part Enchanted Forest Album Workshop. I"ll share it with you on Sunday along with our July Giveaway.

With lot's of birthdays and Anniversaries coming up I thought I'd better get card making. I love the Altenew stamps but hadn't bought any 'till this week. Thanks guys for sending them out so quickly.   One of the sets I went for was 'Beautiful Day'.  I love the options in this floral multi layer stamp set and like the JOFY stamps you know I'm doo lally about, you can get out your pens, pencils, paints or inks and create gorgeous images that are as simple or as detailed as you want them to be. I used distress inks, and a paintbrush dipped in water to colour my images stamped on water colour paper with black archival ink.  More pics of card No 2 below.  
The frame on this card was die cut using the largest two dies from the Large Stitched Rectangles set from Lawn Fawn,  mounted on a fun foam frame cut out with the same dies and coloured with a hint of Fossilised Amber distress ink.

 Adding the flowers to the frame gives the card a lovely airy feel.  The large flower is the centre of the large detailed rose stamp, trimmed down.

 The sentiment is in the stamp set, and mounted on card die cut with the smallest of the rectangles from the set mentioned above. All I've got to do now is write the envelopes and get them off in the post. 
Well thats all for today, It's just gone 6 and I"m going to down tools and chilax this eve.  Looking forward to seeing everyone coming along to the G45 workshop tomorrow and to catching up again with you on Sunday.  Have a great eve. ttfn x :-) C

  5. Good evening Clare, from a likewise extremely soggy South Yorkshire. There was a time this afternoon when conditions could only be described as Monsoon-like! I do love your latest project and thanks for sharing. Congratulations to Maggie May - it goes without saying that I am green with envy. Stay dry and enjoy your upcoming weekend. Take care

  9. Beautiful cards...definitely would brighten up a gloomy day! I like how you've stamped the image to continue off the frame on the first card, but only added color to the frame stamping...nice technique. thanks for sharing your lovely work!
