WWC168 - Helen's Feminine "Anything Goes" Challenge

This week Helen is hosting our Feminine "Anything Goes" challenge at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  I decided to share one of the cards I made in a new class that I won from Altenew.  It was one of the best classes I've taken.  The instructor, Julia Altermann, is an excellent teacher and I learned a lot from her.

Our first lesson was about layering stamps, which I love.  The one I used is called Painted Poppy by Altenew.  And, I actually used glitter and didn't make a mess.  I'm so proud of me!  I usually have it all over me, the floor and anywhere else it can go.  Let's just say my experience with glitter has not been a good one.  Learning a new way to stick it down using sticky tape has made me fall in love with glitter all over again.  I love the sparkle it can add to your project.

Stamp Set:  Painted Poppy (Altenew), Background Bits (Stampin' Up!)
Inks:  Lemon Meringue, Plum Punch, Confetti Cake, Cookie Monster, Strawberry Milkshake, Guava, Pea Pod, Lime Zest, Oreo Hybrid, Poppy Seed (Taylored Expressions)
Cardstock:  Sugar Cube (Taylored Expressions)
Other:  Gold Glitter, Sequins

Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,



  1. This is gorgeous Marsha hope your keeping well hugs Sue xx

  2. Wow this is a gorgeous floral card. Your Altnew class sounds wonderful, and it's obvious from the CAS style and colouring of your images that you've learned some new techniques. Absolutely love this card Marsha. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks, Penny! So far, all the classes I've taken at Altenew have been great!

  3. Beautiful colours, Marsha. They make your poppies "pop". Love that diagonal line of glitter and the new technique which let you use it without glittering up your entire world.

    1. Thanks, Heidi! I never would have thought to use sticky strip to hold glitter.
