Sparkle & Shine Complete Crisp Dye Ink Bundle

Magnolia – Marker Coloring Book

I love the Altenew Marker Coloring Book (and its Watercolor Coloring Book counterpart) for the beautiful and easy to color arrangements. Each page has a black outline (shown above) and a grey faded outline for no-outline coloring. The paper in the marker coloring book makes Altenew Artist Marker blending a breeze. The pages are also the perfect size for A2 sized note cards.

Materials and Supplies

Exotic Blooms Maker Coloring Book

Sunshine Valley Garden Artist Marker Set F

Jet Black Ink Spray

Rose Tea Stamp Die Bundle

Stitched Shiny Forest

The combinations in Tree Mix Die Set make beautiful and sophisticated focal points. I used the Gilded Metallic Cardstock Set to cut a variety of the solid trees. I overlaid these trees with the smaller layer of dies and cut them from white cardstock.

I pulled out my sewing machine and threaded the Enchanted Gold Metallic Thread directly through my machine. After adjusting the tension, I stitched the trees and linear background embellishments for even more dimensional texture.

Materials and Supplies

Tree Mix Die Set

Glitter Cardstock Set-Gilded

Make A Statement Sequins Bundle

Metallic Thread Set

Stellar & Stunning Starflowers

I started with a deckled edge die cut from a gold heat embossed Illusion Diamonds Stamp Set background. I did this gold embossing on top of coral colored cardstock. Then I rose gold embossed the first detail layer from Stunning Starflower Stamp Set. I cut the embossed pieces and arranged my floral arrangement around a gold heat embossed sentiment and other embellishments.

  1. I can’t believe how talented you are! You even sew — who knew? The cards are just beautiful. Thank you for always keeping everything fresh and new!


  2. Your style is so amazing, Jaycee. I always enjoy your Altenew inspiration, and this is quite a FAB release once again.


  3. Hi, Jaycee! Most of the time, you and I don’t share the same style; of course, your cards are great, but not something I would case. TODAY was different! I am particularly drawn to the coral colored card with the gold and rose gold embossing. Background stamps can be so useful and I buy them, but don’t often use them. I really like your use of the diamond background stamp embossed with gold. The embossing you’ve done on the coral cardstock truly enhances it without drawing attention to itself. Thank you!


  4. What a beautiful variety of cards! I love the “coloring book” card. And the tree card is so sparkly and cool. But my favorite is your last card! I just LOVE the color choices and the somewhat simple design. I can do this!
