Today I am delighted to be hopping along with Altenew and lots of crafty bloggers. Between us, we will be bringing you creative ideas for using Altenew's Fabulous Flora release of stamps, dies and more!!
Thank you to the wonderful and crafty Emily Midgett for directing you here. Next up is Lileth Eeckels. Alternatively, you can begin this hopping journey directly from the Altenew Card Blog. The full list of participants can be found below.
My project today is a 6"x6" greetings card which I made using the super pretty new Blobby Roses Stencil Set (4 in 1) and also the coordinating Blobby Roses Die Set.
Stencilling is a fairly new concept in cardmaking for me personally, but since I purchased my first one from Altenew, I have discovered it to be one of my favourite techniques now. I just love watching the layers and colours of the stencilled images emerge, before ending up with the final result.
I used the following Altenew Crisp Dye Inks for my flowers and stems-
- Pink Diamond
- Sea Forest
I kept things fairly simple in terms of my design. I added a heart shaped wooden frame from my craft stash for the sentiment on my card, and this sentiment is from the Altenew True Friends Sentiment Stamp Set. I heat embossed in white on an olive green background.
I thought it would be nice to add a die-cut blobby rose for a little extra texture.
It occurred to me after I had finished my card, how similar my stencilling looks to that on the packaging, but the colours I used are completely different. Perhaps I was sub-conciously influenced by the illustration on the packaging?
I really like that Altenew provide layering guides for the projects. This is the one they have provided for the Blobby Roses Layering Stencil.
