Grateful For You

Hello there! A quick post from me to share a card I made for a friend who has been (and still is) a tower of strength for me. I'm using Altenew stamps called Bold Blossoms. Inspiration for this card came from Altenew November Challenge.

The sentiment is from MFT Grateful For You. I applied lots of Clear Wink of Stella over the grateful die cut for added shine. I inked the background with Faded Jeans DI.

I stamped and fussy cut the flowers and leaves. For the flowers I used Ranger Dye Ink Lemon Twist, LF Wild Rose and Ranger Archival Carnation Red. For the leaves I used LF Mermaid, LF Jalapeño and Ranger Archival Cobalt.

That's all from me today. It's very late and I should be in bed! Thank you so much for stopping by and have a lovely weekend.



  1. This card is so very pretty. You coloured the card so well and I love how you fussy cut it and placed it on the pretty background. She will love this. It sounds like you have had quite the year so I'm very glad your friend has been there for you.

  2. Wonderfully done and I love how you got so much dimension with this design. I love the coloring too and I know your friend will appreciate this card very much.

  3. Gorgeous card for your friend asha..Loz

  4. Another beauty full of light with the Altenew roses, Asha! They pop out very well and the colours are so vibrant as always!! Love the blending on the back, from the lighty bottm to the more dark on the top. It's a delight!

  5. Such gorgeous bright and cheerful colours. So beautifully coloured sweetie.

  6. Such a beautiful card-- your friend surely knows how much you appreciate her, but this will show it! Masterful job of inking the background. This card is so colorul, yet it is clean... so pretty.

  7. I like the way you have fussy cut the flower and then built up the blue colour in depth on the background. Very pretty. Hugs Mrs A.

  8. This is ultra stylish and your coloring is perfection! It's a beauty!

  9. Beautiful card and fabulous colouring on the stamped flowers
