Altenew Crafty Friends Blog Hop Day 1 + Giveaway (CLOSED)

Altenew Peaceful Wreath, Modern Deer. Cards by Svitlana Shayevich

Hello and welcome to Altenew Crafty Friends Blog Hop! With this blog hop we’re celebrating our unique crafty community. This is a two days blog hop and today is the Day 1.

You probably came from Chameleon Art Products blog. If not – you may consider starting from the beginning at Altenew Card Blog and see what other participants of this cool blog hop have created. Also there are a lot of prizes to win.

I have two holidays cards to share with you today. They’re similar and different at the same time.

CHALKBOARD

For my first card I went with a chalkboard design. Chalkboard became very popular in design and cardmaking several years ago and I got imidiatelly hooked. Since then it became one of those looks I tend to come back from time to time.

I started by stamping the wreath onto a white cardstock using the Peaceful Wreath Stamp Set. I was stamping it along with another one, which I used on the other card.

The leaves of the wreath were stamped using the Aqualicious and Teal Cave Dye Inks. For berries I used the Pinkalicious and Rubellite inks. These colors are not quite holiday traditional. But I wanted to use something different in this case.

For the chalkboard I stamped an adorable deer from the Modern Deer Stamp Set using a white ink onto a black card base. And also I swiped some paper towel inked with the white ink all along the card front. To add this look of chalked surface.

I popped the wreath onto the card and added a banner with a sentiment stamped using the Rubellite Dye Ink.

BRIGHT CLASSIC

For my second card I went with more classic color scheme, although I twisted it a bit as well taking a lighter and brighter approach. I mead that these colors can be easily used on an Easter card for example. But I feel that they work for a holiday card as well.

And if the previous card was one of those designs I do quite often and feel comfortable with – the second card is rather my attempt to work in less comfortable for me style. Light cards, bright colors and unusual color combinations is not something that I feel easily by heart.

So the wreath was stamped using the Sweet Leaf and Just Green Inks for leaves and Coral Berry and Ruby Red inks for berries.

I stamped the modern deer using the Almond Butter and Milk Chocolate Die Ink and die-cut it with the matching die.

I foam mounted a White Woodgrain panel onto a mint card base and adhered the deer onto it. Followed by foam mounting the wreath on top.

Lastly I added the sentiment made using the Halftone Holidays Stamp and Die sets.

    It is so great to see two cards in very different styles using the same stamps .. it helps me visualize how things will look. It also encourages me to go outside my comfort zone and try styles that don’t come naturally to me because I try to mimic the beautiful examples you provide.

    Hi Svitlana. You never fail to challenge! Love both the cards and especially the unusual colouring of the aqua and hot pink wreath. The deer behind it is so subtle, I didn’t even see it at first because I was just attracted to the different colouring of the wreath, but when it emerged I just thought “wow, what a great look this card has”. However, I still love the more traditionally coloured one. Thanks so much for the inspiration as always.
