I do have a few cards I made that I’d like to share with you first.
I actually had some time to play in my stamp room this morning and I knew I wanted to pull out some of the beautiful Altenew florals. I also wanted to increase my stash of cards on hand and I wanted to keep my creations simple and flat for mailing, so that’s just what I did. I made 4 cards using Altenew’s Dahlia Blossoms.
The first two I made are gray and white – very simple.
Only the sentiments are pop-dotted up and with THIN dots.
And the second two are a bit fancier in gold and kraft. They were just as easy to make, they just look a little more elegant with the gold foil.
Stamps: Dahlia Blossoms by Altenew (florals)
Floral Shadow by Altenew (sentiments)
Dahlia Blossoms is a multi-step stamp, made to be stamped in 3 layers. For this card I only used the outline layer, and I LOVE it used this way! Simple and clean.
Ink: VersaFine Smokey Gray (on white cardstock)
Stamps: Dahlia Blossoms by Altenew (florals and Bloom sentiment)
Floral Shadow by Altenew (sentiment)
Paper: Gold Kraft Foil 6×6 by Bazzill
Bazzill Mirror Cardstock – Gold
Ink: Delicata – Golden Glitz
For this floral design I used the middle detailed stamp of the three-step stamps. I really like how it looks like a vintage tapestry design. I used the Golden Glitz Delicata to stamp and it is just stunning. This is an AMAZING ink. It can be stamped and used as is with a beautiful shine OR it can be embossed. It’s a favorite ink of our entire Design Team.
The above photos don’t really capture just how pretty the Delicata ink is. Thus this photo, just trying to get a hint of the glimmer and glitz of the Delicata. This is just straight stamping, no embossing. LOVE how easy it is! It’s so gorgeous!
Other items used on these cards:
Dies: Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics B
Spellbinders A Gilded Life Petite Pennants
Spellbinders Classic Squares
