Good morning! I’m so excited to be hopping along to celebrate the November stamp, die, and stencil release from Altenew! I’ve got two projects and a giveaway to share so let’s get started!
For my first card I kept it pretty simple with my favorite combo of pink, black, and white! I stamped the flowers and foliage from Poppy Garden with intense black ink and colored them with copics. I used pinks and yellow for the flowers and greys for the foliage. Once I was done coloring I die-cut them with the coordinating dies.
Next I applied the Gradient Lines washi tape to an A2 panel of white cardstock and trimmed off the excess. I stamped the sentiment and trimmed it down to a thin angled label. Then I adhered my first flower layer to the A2 panel. I added a tangle of black thread and then adhered the single flower with foam mounting tape. Finally I tucked in my sentiment to finish the card!
Next I wanted to play with the Poppy Garden masking stencils! I started by stamping the top flower with versafine and heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I masked it and stamped the bottom flower layer with intense black ink. I masked off both flowers with the stencil and lightly blended evergreen bough and cracked pistachio distress oxide ink around the flowers fading out to white. I splattered the distress oxide ink with water and blotted off the excess before letting it dry.
While that was drying I worked on the sentiment. I die-cut the bottom layer of the Handwritten Hello die from black cardstock. Next I blended evergreen bough distress oxide ink onto a panel of white cardstock. I let it dry for a few minutes and then die-cut it with the sentiment die. I adhered them together with liquid adhesive and then added them to my blended panel. I love the pop of green with the bold floral stamps!
