Altenew 5th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 3

Hello dear friend! Welcome to Altenew 5th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 3! I am so very glad to join this hop and to play with the Altenew’s stamps again. I was in first Altenew’s design team and it was great time! So glad to be here again with them! You came here from Scrapbook & Cards Today blog and now it’s my turn to share with you my projects.

I am always excited to stamp Altenew’s flowers (hard times for my misti tool haha!). For this blog hop I prepared three cards. I used the same layout, supplies, techniques and similar color schemes. I combined here two my last favorite stamp sets: Build-A-Flower: Rose and Sweet Rose Bouquet Stamp & Die Bundle. I stamped three pieces for all elements and die cut them with the matching dies.

The color schemes here are gray color plus something bright (it always is so eye catching). The inks I used are Cherry Blossom Mini Cube Set, Cool Summer Night Mini Cube Set, Warm Gray Mini Cube Set and the combo of yellow and light orange inks from different sets.

For the backgrounds, I applies some gray inks with Cube Builder Stencil — combination of soft flowers and strong geometry always looks so great! I like it! I adhered the front panels to the card bases and foam mounted the flowers.

The last details are some clear sequins and drops and simple sentiments from Label Love Stamp Set.

Thank you for visiting my blog! Now go to Amanda Baldwin‘s blog to see her projects!

    Gorgeous cards — I love the soft graphic grays in the background, and the bold blooms as the focal — very fresh — but classic with a modern touch!

    These are lovely. The flowers are so pretty. I especially like the blue color. I really like the backgrounds. I’m going to have to see if I have this stencil. I rarely use them but this makes me want to get them out.

    I would never have thought to use a geometric background for these floral cards but the result is stunning. Thanks for the inspiration.

    I agree with you so much that soft florals + strong geometry is a winning combination! And I love how you used the cube builder to not build a cube. I love getting more use out of my stencils. Thanks for sharing with us!

    I love seeing a variety of «same but different» cards. It’s a great way to help me look at my designs and supplies a bit differently. I think the way you’ve used that stencil in a new way is brilliant — particularly as texture on the blue roses card! I look forward to trying that myself! Congratulations on your 5th Birthday, Altenew! Looking forward to many more!
