"Altenew Stamp Card"

Hello Blog friends followers and anyone who pressed a wrong button and landed here!!!
Welcome to my little corner in the wonderful world of Blogland.  It`s such a wonderful place where all sorts of fantastic talent is shared.  I love looking in all all the Blogs I follow plus others I come across because I press a wrong button!!!
I am still really, really, struggling with Windows 10. 
I was getting there when we decided to have a little holiday.  I recently managed to learn how to "Schedule" posts and did a few before we flew off to Portugal for a much needed holiday.
I do not mention we are actually going away from home on here. Living very rural I am always wary of who is looking in and taking note.  A friend of mine stupidly announced on Facebook that they were all off to Florida for 2 weeks.  Then she wondered why her house had been burgled while they were away DOH!!!  Everyone and their Auntie knew they had 2 weeks to clear the house.
Anyway we had a good holiday, walked the soles of our "walking shoes" thin!!! and enjoyed the sunshine.
Here is card I made with a set of Altenew Stamps.  I love using this type of  stamps, you get a great effect with the use of just a couple of Ink Pads.

Base card approx 5x7
Pink Satin Board Card 
My stamped image on white card.
I had a look at the card that came with the Stamp Set, it does not tell you what the set is actually called.
I "think" it is something like "Beautiful Blossoms"

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling by and for your continued support, I really appreciate it.
Till next time

  1. Wonderful card Patricia! Beautifully stamped and the narrow mat of pink satin board really sets it off nicely.
    I don't say when I'm going away from the house on my blog and have changed from my full name to Debra K on Google now as you're quite right that you don't know who's looking at FB and other social media. Debra x

  3. Morning Patricia,
    Beautiful card, I have this stamp set, it's called Beautiful Day.
    Pleased to hear you had a good holiday.

  4. Gorgeous card and I love the sweet image!

  5. Hello Patricia,
    Welcome home! This is a really pretty card and I like the pink satin card ! I have quite a bit of that and forget to use it!
    Your flowers are always beautiful!
    Love Myra xx

  6. Hi Patricia, So good you had a lovely holiday.
    This card using the Altenew stamps is really beautiful, they are so effective.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  7. This is lovely I don't stamp but when I see people like you use this type I am very tempted especially as they do dies to match don't they? Glad to hear you had a good holiday You and John had definitely earned it I have never bought coloured silk/mirri card but that little pop of pink behind the image looks gorgeous So I'm changing my mind

  8. Great to hear you had a lovely holiday Patricia. Love this pretty card, they are such great stamps and the shimmer of the mat looks really expensive too xx

  9. Love this beautiful card Patricia, I also have this stamp, lovely set.
    Glad you had a wonderful holiday.

  10. So glad you have a lovely holiday Patricia and love today's card. I really like this stamp set. Must look out for it. Thank you to Lydia for letting us know the name.

  11. Beautiful card Patricia. Super stamp.

  12. Please you had a lovely holiday Patricia, much needed as you say.
    Beautiful floral card, and in your signature pink too. Must have a look at these stamps, they look lovely, Kate x

  13. So glad you had a lovely vacation, and I agree with you, folks need to be more circumspect anytime something is posted via the computer. We have house setters if I make mention of going away, so someone is on the property. I don't post it on Facebook, and I've also read if you post with a Smart phone, a stalker can track your position. I tell my young relatives constantly, no one needs to know you're at the beach, at a restaurant, whatever. Anyway, I love this card. Every Altenew (and also Wplus9) set I have, works nicely (sometimes operator error though!). You've made a beautiful floral card with this set. Someone will be very happy to open the envie. TFS & have a great week

  14. Great to hear you had a good holiday Patricia, I'm with you over announcing it. I did hear that the insurance companies were talking of checking social media sites and refusing to pay out if you'd advertised the fact you are away. Gulp!

    I love this card, the stamped image is just perfect and so delicately coloured. You always produce such beautiful flowers.

    Hugs Erika. x

  15. Patricia, thanks for your visits. My brusho backgrounds are _nothing like_ those fab brusho scenes you've shared. Those were gorgeous! Have a great wk, and hope your sister is well. Hugs

  16. Hi Patricia
    Sounds like a lovely break.
    Superb card. I saw these sets on TV a couple of days ago and they are very effective.
    Best wishes.
