Altenew Build-a-Flower Gardenia -- lots of glitter or a little glitter

Hey there!  Today I have a couple of cards to show you.  One uses a lot of glitter and the other uses just a little.  They are obviously both a similar layout, but both look fairly different.  The flower used is from the Altenew set called Build-a-Flower Gardenia.  The background stamp is called Good Reading from Simon Says Stamp, and the sentiment is from the Simon Says Stamp set called Floral Bliss.  I love how both of these turned out, and if you'd like to watch the process video, here it is:

and here are a couple of close ups of the cards themselves.

Stamps:  Altenew Build-a-Flower Gardenia, SSS Good Reading Background, SSS Floral Bliss
Ink:  Altenew Green Fields set, Altenew Warm Gray set
Paper:  SSS Fog cs, Neenah Solar White
Accessories:  Altenew Build-a-Flower Gardenia die, Labels 11 Nestabilities, fine purple glitter, Scar-Tape, foam tape, Enchanted Stickles, SSS Moonshine Confetti

Encouraging Cards #3 & a Coupon Code

Hey there!  I have another card for the Encouraging Card Series that I started doing.  I started this because I know so many people that could use encouragement.  Whether it be in their day to day activities, they are dealing with something difficult, or just because, I thought it would be good to start making and sending encouraging cards.  After all isn't that so much of the fun of making cards?  Who doesn't love a little encouragement from time to time and especially in the form of handmade kindness :)

I made this card using the Altenew stamp called Hug Me.  It's not new, but it was new to me, and I love the little images in the set.  If you'd like to receive a 10% off coupon code from Altenew, just click on this link:  ALTENEW.  

I also have a process video of this card if you're interested in checking it out.

Ink:  Lawn Fawn Jet Black
Paper:  Neenah Solar White, Neenah Desert Storm, Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Rainbow, yellow cs

CTD #498 Ocean Pals

Hey there!  I've made a card for the Color Throwdown Challenge this week, and the colors were peach, pale pink, hot pink, and green.  I needed a birthday card for this weekend, so I pulled out my MFT Ocean Pals set, and inked her up to watercolor.  Now that I'm looking at it, wouldn't it be cute with some google eyes?!  I did make a process video for those that are interested.
