Hi there everyone and happy Friday!
I’m so excited you stopped by today and I’m also super excited that I’m part of Altenew’s July Release Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from the awesome Eunyoung , but if not don’t worry there is a hop list at the bottom of my post.
So Altenew are releasing 16 stamp sets, paper, and washi tape on July 29th…. yay! You are sure to find something you love ! So on to my cards….
My first card showcases Bamboo Rose…
I stamped a number of the beautiful rose images in white embossing onto watercolour card. Once I was happy with the amount of flowers I covered the images with clean water and then dropped in colour , making sure I went over the edges so the colours would blend out down the card.
The sentiment is from the same set.
My second card uses Celebrations…
I stamped and heat embossed in gold the beautiful bouquet from the set all over my white card base. I just love how simple yet classy this looks.
I stamped the sentiment from the same set using the same gold embossing powder. To pull the card together I added a strip of card heat set in the same gold behind the sentiment.
I stamped the flower image three times going down from the top of the base using black ink. I then took the splatter from the Coffee Talk set and used this to ‘colour’ in my image. To do this I just inked part of the splatter up and repeatedly stamped the splatter so the image was covered.
