Addicted To Stamps And More Challenge #356...

Hi! I am here today with some fresh inspiration for this week’s challenge at the Addicted to Stamps & More challenge blog. The theme this week is our most popular one.

I created a card set using some Altenew supplies for a dear friend. I also made a box to hold the cards and envelopes and decorated it using the same stamps. Here is the box.

I made the box with black card stock. I created the top by stamping the outline flowers from the Beautiful Day stamp set by Altenew on a cream panel with red and teal inks. The sentiment is from the Birthday stamp set by Ranger. I stamped it with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

A look inside the box.

For all the cards I used the Beautiful Day stamp set and mini ink pad sets by Altenew. 

For the first card, I used the Warm and Cozy mini cube set. 

I stamped only the outline of the flower, using the darkest shade in the set and die cut it using the coordinating dies. The leaves were stamped with three shades of the Warm Grey set and also cut using the dies. I trimmed a panel of white card stock and inked a corner with the same ink I had used for stamping. I also added some ink splatters for added texture.

I adhered the inked panel to a coordinating card base and arranged the flower and leaves over it. The sentiments are all different, from Fresh Freesia, Beautiful Day and Floral Art stamp sets. I stamped each with Versafine Onyx Black ink. 

To finish, I added some clear gems from my stash. I also stamped the flowers with light grey ink on all the envelopes. Here is the completed card and envelope.

Here are the rest of the cards with the ink sets I used.

Here is the whole card set along with the box.
