NEW CARDS AND NEW TECHNIQUES
The new release stamps and coordinating dies and embossing folders showcase the beautiful new stamps. Here are the cards I created using the new stamps and materials.
TECHNIQUES AND SUPPLIES
Creating these cards that showcase flowers gave me a chance to use a few different techniques and Altenew stamping resorces- stamps, coordinating dies, embossing folders , layering stencils, background stencils , washi tape,debossing plate, watercolors and ink cubes. I hope you are inspired to try some of these easy technqiues and stamping resources.
This small but awesome stamp-Altenew Mini Delight Budding Wallpaper Layering stamp set and coordinating dies inspired me to create a picture frame layout. I stamped the flowers and stems using Altenew ink cubes to create the two flowers, After piecing the flowers to create the two stems and bud, I die cut a few more pieces from white card to create dimension. I used the 3D Baroque embossing folder and gold paper and the die to create the frame. Then I die cut a few more frames using white card stock to create layers, I stenciled the background using Altenew’s Fine Tulle, blending brush and ink cubes. Extra paper die cut banners for the stamped sentiments. I used a clear glitter pen to outline the flowers and greenery for some sparkle.
This set is Altenew Paint a Flower Modern Pink Dianthus outline stamp. I stamped the flowers on watercolor paper and painted the flowers using Altenew 12 half pan set watercolor paint box. The gold accent frame was created using Altenew washi tape- gold glitter, and gold stripe washi tape. I added the washi tape to a piece of white card stock to outline the edge of the paper. An easy technique to try and you don’t need glitter paper to create the background. Gold stripe tape on white card stock and then die cut it and added it to the sentiment group. I inked splattered the back ground and covered the flowers with scrap paper. The final piece was to spray the stamped piece using Altenew shimmery irridescent spray. A shimmery card.
The next two cards I used the Altenew Craft Your Life Watercolor Flowers. These cards I stamped the flower images on white card stock and used the layering stencil to color the leaves and flowers. I die cut the pieces and also layered them for dimension. I die cut one more large flower and fussy cut it and layered it over the stamped piece. I added extra stems to tuck behind the colored image. This set had lots of options to create layering. I stenciled the background using the same Altenew stencil and distress ink cube. The coordinating sentiments and the shaped dies are great and different. A gold thread bundle behind the shaped sentiment at some shine. I used the same clear glitter pen to outline the petals and leaves.
This card using the same flower die and for this one I used the coordinating Altenew embossing folder. I embossed the blue card stock first to create the background. Then embossed it again on another piece of the same blue card stock. Next, I die cut the embossed image. I used Altenew clear ink to swipe over the piece, then added Altenew white embossing powder and heat set the white powder. Because the embossed image is dimensional the ink covered some of the die cut flower and not others. I stamped and die cut the sentiment and cut several from white card stock for dimension. It fit in that small space to complete the card.
