For my card I used the Book Club Stamp Set( ALTN | SBC | SSS ). Isn’t it stunning?! And you get that circle at the center to stamp your sentiment! You can create a window card out of it, leave it as is for a one layer card or even create a shaker card! And the design is so versatile taht it would work for anything! Think of weddings, birthdays, thank you cards. You can also get different looks by changing the colors of the flowers, emboss it instead of stamping… oh so many ideas for using up this stamp a lot!

For my cards design I used the matching dies and added some dimension. I did all the coloring using my Altenew Artist Markers Set D ( ALTN | SBC ) and Set E ( ALTN | SBC | SSS ). For the background I used the Pixel Washi Tape ( ALTN | SBC | SSS ). The sentiment comes from the Beautiful Peony Stamp Set( ALTN | SBC | SSS ).

  64. I love your cards Vicky, I’ve learned so much from your videos I’m now a subscriber to your blog as well instead of just checking every now and then from your videos! I used your idea with the Altenew galaxy washi tape and zodiac dies to make a card for a friend who is the new global leader of tax policy — I used the world map on the outside and the galaxy washi on the inside to make a joke — today the world, tomorrow the universe — what can I say, we tax lawyers crack ourselves up — but your were the inspiration — you and Altenew! thanks so much!
