Finally Inking Up a New Stamp Set!

Oh My Gosh!
I was so excited to finally ink up this stamp set!

Altenew's Beautiful Day is....

So without further ado...
here is my first Beautiful day card.

The stamps seen here are from a few different companies...
(I'll note them below)
the roses are unmistakably Altenew!
Aren't they gorgeous?
I used my MINI MISTI today, instead of my full sized MISTI..
for all of the stamping.
The 3 layers were stamped with Aletnew Crisp Ink in....
Cotton Candy....Coral Berry and Ruby Red
The 2  leaf layers were also stamped with Altenew Crisp Ink...
Forest Glades and Evergreen

and now...
 a close-up of this gorgeousness...
(I cannot wait to use this stamp set with different ink color combos!)
The smallest sentiment (Happy Mother's Day)...
is from a Just Rite Stampers clear stamp set
"MOM" is from Stampin Up's "Messages for Mom"
(a set that I have had since it came out...but hadn't used....yet)
I heat embossed MOM with fine detail gold embossing powder to make it stand out
when the card was complete..I added a few sequins
The image layer is matted on LCI's amazing metallic card stock...
although doesn't show well in the photo....the gold mat layer is absolutely beautiful
so shimmery....so pretty
Although I'm not a very "bling-y" card maker...
sometimes...I DO love a little bit of sparkle or shimmer

I am cuckoo crazy about this stamp set..
and can't wait to put it to work
when I create similar cards...in different colors...
