Hello crafty friends,
I can't believe how fast the months go by?! It's time for another Altenew release blog hop woot woot! You should have arrived here from the talented Agnieszka Malyszek 's blog.
This is such a wonderful release again, it's hard to pick favorites! However, the Layered Floral Elements die set has to be one! I paired it with the Dainty Swiss Dots stamp set on these cards.
I die cut a bunch of flowers from different colored card stock. I assembled the ones that have two layers. I then stamped a couple of polka dot backgrounds with black ink. I created 3 A2 size top folding card bases. For the first one I cut a strip of black card stock and a slightly smaller strip of polka dot paper, then glued them down on the background. I stamped my sentiment. I just love the font of these sentiments!
I arranged the flowers along the strip and glued them down, some with liquid glue, some using foam dots for added dimension.
For my next card I used an A2 size panel of the polka dot background I stamped earlier. I glued this on my card base. I stamped my sentiment and created two clusters of flowers in two opposite corners of my card.
I still had a small piece of polka dot paper left so I punched a circle from it and added it on top of a larger black circle. I glued these on my card front, then I created a cluster of flowers at the bottom of the circle. Last but not least I splattered black ink all over my card front.
Next up is the super pretty Brilliant Baubles set. I created 2 cards with similar designs. The first one I stamped directly on the card front, the second one however I stamped on some white card stock, die cut, then layered on the card front. To finish off the first one, I stamped my sentiment, added some twine and Nuvo drops.
On the second I added sequins instead. My goodness, this sentiment though?! Sooo pretty right? I love the hand written look to it.
On my next card I've used the itty bitty Poinsettia Pieces stamp set. This is an adorable 2x3" set! I simply stamped a background and splattered some black ink all over it. I cut a circle from white card stock and stamped my sentiment on it. I drew some faux stitch detail around the circle. I trimmed off the right side and using foam dots I glued down the (now) semi-circle. To finish it off I added a grey flower with leaves and Nuvo drops.
Next I focused on the gorgeous Peace Love Joy set. I randomly stamped the star onto my background, then die cut an extra one and added it in the middle using foam dots to add interest and dimension. I stamped a bunch of little red bows for an accent color.
Finally, I made two cards with the stunning Peaceful Wreath stamp set. I stamped a blue and a pink polka dot background using the Dainty Swiss Dots stamp set. I went with a simple and a bit more complicated card. I trimmed off a little from the left side of the circle, and arranged my leaves around it.
The second card. I die cut the circle in the middle and created a sequin window. I stamped the sentiment inside that window too.
That's it from me today! I hope you liked all the inspiration so far! I'm yet to check the whole blog hop but I'm pretty sure it's full of awesomeness!
