Collaboration_PPP_1023

Hello, and welcome to the Altenew & Pretty Pink Posh collaboration blog hop! If you came from the amazing Julia Altermann’s blog, you are right on track! Today the design team girls are sharing some fabulous projects using both Altenew and Pretty Pink Posh products, and here is what I came up with:

Altenew Blop Hop_Card_May_2

I created a negative die-cut card with ombre inked background. I went out of my comfort zone by adding layers, ink splatters, and some sequins on my card. To be honest, I struggled with this new-to-me style and spent almost two days for re-dos until I was pleased with the result.

I started by creating a negative die-cut panel using the Stitched Due 2 Die from Pretty Pink Posh. Then I made ombre inked background using five shades of blue using Altenew Crisp Inks(Sea Glass, Ocean Waves, Dusk, Desert Night) and Distress Ink Fade Jeans.

Before I mounted the negative die-cut panel, I added some ink splatters using Ranger Perfect Pearls on the inked piece. Next, I adhered a piece of vellum and white Fenstone Decorative Element on the top of the panel.

I heat embossed the sentiment from the Super Script stamp set with Ranger Embossing Powder(super fine white) on a piece of black cardstock. Then I die cut ‘awesome’ with Super Script die after stamping ‘awesome’ from Super Script.

For the finishing touches, I added some clear sequins from Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix. I’m so in love with the crisp colors/white splatters/clear sequins behind the negative die-cut panel. What do you think? Hope you love my card as much as I do. 🙂

I made a processing video on how I created my card. You can watch the video tutorial here or in HD on YouTube. If you like this video, please give it a thumbs up. Don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel, too. 🙂

  1. I’m so glad I watched your video instead of just looking at the picture of the finished card. For one thing, the way you lined up the die-cut circles was brilliant! You did a fabulous job on the whole project.

  2. Lovely card, great things can happen when we step out of our comfort zones. I have Altenew on order, hope they arrive soon.

  3. Well all that struggling was very worth it! It’s graphic and modern, yet cool and relaxing. Perfect splatters and I love that white frame/flourish.

  4. Altenew + PPP = perfect match! Your beautiful negative die-cut circles card is 100% evidence this is true! Gorgeous!

  5. Your background turned out beautiful. Adding the die cuts and vellum was a great idea. And the sequin bling peeking though is great. Very nice design. TFS

  6. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! I would have thought you’d been making this style of card for years, it turned out great.

  7. Even though you re-did the cards a few times before you were happy with it, it looks effortlessly beautiful!
    I love it.

  8. I don’t know if you were going for a water feel, but that’s what I get from this card. When I first saw it, I couldn’t figure out how you got the “bubbles” in the background. Now I see it was simply splatters — I didn’t know perfect pearls would do that! It really is a stunning card. Glad you went out of your comfort zone, because you fit right in!

  9. This is a stunning card. All your worry and effort turned into a great result. I’ve done the same thing. Thank you!

  10. What a beautiful card. I am just in love with that beautiful blue background. Thank you for sharing your great video.

  11. I think you got “AWESOME” results. Splatters don’t always work for me so I hesitate to even go there. I love everything about your card. Thanks so much.

  12. SERIOUSLY AWESOME card and tutorial May!!!
    WOW – it was EXCITING watching you in action, SO CLEVER how you created the background, LOVE the design and colours, LOVE your decorative layers too!!!
    THANK YOU for sharing your BEAUTIFUL and CREATIVE INSPIRATION!!!

  13. Wondeful card! Thanks so much for the video, loved how you lined up the die using the cut you had already made! I have never thought to do that!! Great tip!

  14. May, your card is amazing… and I’m sure the other two you did were as well 😀 It gives an ocean vibe with the ombre colors!

  15. As i continue to hop the cards are getting better and better I think now this is the most favourite card of this hop. I love the calm and soothing background and a lively foreground
