Hello and welcome to Altenew May 2016 release blog hop!

You probably came from Nicole Picadura. If not – you may consider starting from the beginning at Altenew blog and see what other members of Altenew’s design team have come up with (and also you have a chance to win a prize on each hop node).e91be960-36dd-4a3b-9ba0-8cc11fa88dad

Today we are celebrating the release of 16 stamp sets and 10 dies. And I made three cards for today’s blog hop. Altenew May 2016 release. Cards by @s_shayevich #card #cardmaking #diy #papercrafts #handmade #altenew The first card is my favorite. The new Spring Daisy stamps set was used here. Before I knew the name of the set I already saw in these flowers not daisies but sunflowers. And after I found out the name of the set I still wanted to make sunflowers. Mostly because they remind me my homeland – Ukraine. I came from the East part of the country and we have so many sunflower fields over there (no surprise that Ukraine is the world’s leader in exporting of sunflower seeds and oil :)). Have you ever seen a sunflower filed? It’s an amazing sight! They’re like living organisms. It’s so adorable when they go to sleep at night closing their petals. And during the day they turn their heads following the Sun (so they are always facing the Sun whenever its position is). Not speaking of food they they give us – sunflower seeds and oil (sunflower oil is mainly used in cooking in Ukraine). I even remember our family growing these yellow buddies in our garden.

But back to cardmaking 🙂 To make my card I first stamped my sunflowers using Mango SmoothieWarm Sunshine and Jet Black inks on card base that I made from Classic Crest Solar White. I masked flowers and leaves so they don’t overlap. Next I masked all flowers and inked the top part of my card using Caribbean Sky ink creating the sky.
Altenew May 2016 release. Cards by @s_shayevich #card #cardmaking #diy #papercrafts #handmade #altenew Next I stamped several flowers and leaves on Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, cut them out and adhered to the card base using foam squares. Added a stripe of white cardstock with the stamped sentiment from Painted Butterflies set. Finished the card adding some clear dots and sequins.
Altenew May 2016 release. Cards by @s_shayevich #card #cardmaking #diy #papercrafts #handmade #altenew The second card features new Painted Rose stamps set. I stamped roses using BlushFrosty PinkCoral BerryCrimson inks and leaves using Frayed LeafForest GladesEvergreen. Some leaves from the set I stamped using pink and red inks and wanted them to represent petals or pieces of flowers but not leaves. Also one rose (the left bottom one) I stamped only using the bottom and top layer, skipping the middle. This gave me some variation in the finish look. As the background turned out to be quite busy – for the rest of the card I went simple, in order to not overwhelm the design. Stamped the sentiment from Super Script 2 set in Jet Black ink, added some stitching to the edges with a stitched rectangle die and adhered the panel flat to a white card base. Altenew May 2016 release. Cards by @s_shayevich #card #cardmaking #diy #papercrafts #handmade #altenew And the third card I made using new Dahlia Blossoms stamps set. Aren’t these dahlias amazing? They’re so realistic! It surprise for Altenew stamps though 😉

To make this card I first stamped all flowers onto Classic Crest Solar White cardstock using BlushFrosty PinkCoral Berry inks. And leaves using Frayed LeafForest Glades. Next I cut out all elements with my scissors.

Adhered a piece of patterned paper with woodgrain design to a white card base followed by adhering floral cluster onto it. I adhered some elements flat and some – using dimensional foam squares. Added a sentiment from Penned Rose set, stamped on a stripe of white cardstock and several sequins.
Altenew May 2016 release. Cards by @s_shayevich #card #cardmaking #diy #papercrafts #handmade #altenew I like how soft dahlias contrast with dark background. And I like that I used at least 1/1000000 of my PP stash lol.

    Svitlana, all 3 cards are stunning, and I had to laugh at your comment about the Dahlia card using up a small portion of your DP stash. With all the selection you have, you picked the perfect dark wood DP to show off this beautiful floral image.

I loved driving by this farm and one year stopped to take pictures from which I created a photo group for my craft room wall, love them. Besides the new Daisy set I also love the Dahlia blossoms and Calligraphy set. Thanks for the beautiful inspiration!

    I love the daisy stamp set. It is darling as a sunflower too.One of my favorite flowers are gerber daisies. Beautiful card. All of your cards are lovely. These are really nice stamp sets.
