And here is my cards :

For this two cards, I'm using Floral Motifs set

I'm using white embossing powder for the flowers on white paper and the vellum. Coloring the flowers with distress ink. The background is using white embossing powder for the sentiment and distress ink with blending tool.
The sentiment for this card is from old set called "Persian Motifs"

I'm using gold embossing powder for the flowers and white embossing powder for the sentiment.

For this two cards, I'm using To The Moon stamp set..I just love this stamp set!! 

For the planet, I'm using gold embossing powder. I add watercolor to the background, die cut the stars and add white ink for the stars.



For the moon, I'm using silver embossing powder and white embossing powder for the sentiment.
I add blue and white pigment ink on the background and white ink for the stars.

For this three cards, I'm using the new set called Bejeweled

 
I'm using Striped Flowers stamp set for the dots with gold embossing powder. I stamp the ribbon with soft ink and colored it using copic to make no outline image.

Stamp the butterfly with white embossing powder on pink cardstock and colored it. The sentiment using silver embossing powder.


Stamp the butterfly with white embossing powder and on the vellum. The sentiment is using silver embossing powder.

For this two cards, I'm using Striped Florals stamp set 



I'm using gold embossing powder for the flowers and for the sentiment, I mix between silver and gold embossing powder.





Stamp the background using black ink and coloring it using COPIC. The sentiment is from older set called Super Script

 And the last stamp set is Halfone Thanks

The sentiment is mix from silver embossing powder and gold embossing powder. Add flowers from Striped Florals with brown ink



For this card, I'm using white embossing powder for the image and the sentiment. Then I'm playing with watercolor on the flowers image from Striped Florals stamp set.

That's my cards using Altenew stamps. I hope you enjoyed it!! I'm having so much fun playing with it :)
