See what I mean, so much goodness!
I wanted to use some of my favorite products from them. 


I really loved the idea of a black and white card with a POP of color. 
How do you make it extra special? 
Add some metallic accents. 


I started with the Pinstripe background stamping in black on white. This is just such a classic stamp. It's versatility is endless and I adore it. Included in the stamp set is also a stamp of random dots that look a little distressed. I decided to use to add some shine to my card. they act almost like sequins or rhinestones to bring the whole design together. 


The flowers were stamped and colored all the same. Keeping the color to scheme to one color let's it really pop off the background. it also keeps the card from getting too busy with all the layering we have going on. Once the coloring was done I got busy die cutting. 


I die cut out all the colored flowers with their matching dies. I also got out some gold glitter paper to die cut one of my crystal frames. This accent adds another pretty pop of gold without competing with the other elements on the card. The frame draws attention to the sentiment but doesn't take anything away from it. 


Speaking of the sentiment, that was some more heat embossing. This time white on black. I did my heat embossing before die cutting the circle to ensure my sentiment was straight. 


Thank you so much for joining us today! 
The next stop on the hop is the wonderful Soraya Maes

See you again soon!

  128. Hello from New York. I found your conversation and coloring very relaxing. Thank you it's something I needed today. My best friend is a surgical RN in a private practice; she was furloughed a bit ago after the practiced shut down. The practice shut down because they aren't doing elective surgeries at this time and they donated ALL their supplies to local hospitals. Anyway she told me today she joined the Covid-19 response team (at no pay); I'm so proud of her but also worried for her health.

    The card is gorgeous. I love the pinstripe background. Adding that stamp to my shopping list.

  178. Hi from Seattle..Firstly kudos all the team of designers of Altenew who have been instrumental in making this possible. I love the inspiration Kelly, and what really caught my eye was the golden embossing that you did on the background against the black and white and it stands out so clearly..
    Happy 6th Altenew... Wish you many more.. love and Hugs.. Stay healthy and Stay safe

  185. This is so very pretty. I've never noticed, until you pointed it out, that you say um a lot. LOL. I say don't sweat the small stuff. I think my husband needs to listen to you. He insists on going out for things that can wait and he insists that I go too. I think he was a little miffed that I insisted on staying in the car while he did his errands. We got our first confirmed case in this county yesterday. Governor Dewine now says we need to wear some kind of mask to not necessarily keep us from getting the virus but to keep us from spreading it. You had some good things to say today. Stay safe and healthy.

  188. Hello from the beautiful Upper Peninsula of Michigan. This card is so lovely. I think, after seeing this, I need to invest in more background stamps. I love this pinstriped one. And the black on white is so perfect...especially with the gorgeous bright flowers. And I thought that frame looks like a little glittery, metal frame. So perfect! Thanks for your beautiful creation!
