3 Different Ways And Styles with Sweet Ginkgo Stamp Set

by Svitlana Shayevich

Hello crafty friends!

Svitlana is here today sharing three quite different cards featuring recently released Sweet Ginkgo product.

Altenew Sweet Ginkgo Stamp Focus 01

I like ginkgo leaves for their unique shape which would add an immediate interest to any card design.


First design that came to my mind when I just took the Ginkgo Stamp Set in my hand is gold and navy. It's a always winning, royal if you will, combination works great with the ginkgo leaves image.

I gold embossed ginkgo leaves background onto a Navy panel of slimline size using Antique Gold Embossing Powder.

Then I cut a vellum stripe and wrapped it around the panel in its top part, adhering it to the back side of the panel. Followed by wrapping the Antique Gold Thread around the vellum stripe.

Net I die cut hugs word out of a Gold Foil Cardstock using a die from the Script Words Die Set and popped it up onto the vellum. After that the Navy panel was adhered onto a white card base.

Several Antique Gold Sequins finished off the card.


If my first card is rather bold the net one a soft and airy one. The “airiness”  is achieved by white embossed onto a vellum ginkgo leaves.

First Next I made a panel out of patterned cardstock from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection Paper Sheet and foam mounted it onto a white card base.

As stated above – I white embossed the leaves onto a Vellum and die cut them using the matching dies.  After that I adhered them onto the card in a swag form. I only adhered them in the top part allowing the ends to hand freely.

I also added a bow made out of Silky Lilac Thread to the top part of the swag.

Lastly I popped up the sentiment strip which is also hiding the adhesive behind it.


My third card features a leaf frame and one of my favorite blue and kraft color combos.

Altenew Sweet Ginkgo Woven Stencil 01

First I made a panel out of a Parchment Cardstock and for additional interest I added woven background to it blending Sand Dunes Dye Ink through Woven Stencil.

Next I created a bunch of leaves using Ginkgo Simple Coloring Stencil to create the solid bottom layer, then I stamped the detailed one using stamps from the Ginkgo Stamp Set and finally die cut all elements using the matching dies.

I adhered the leaves all around the panel and trimmed the excess hanging beyond the panel edges. After that the panel was foam mounted onto a white card base.

Next I popped up sentiment strip made by white embossing one from the Birthday Greetings Stamp Set onto a Jet Black Cardstock strip. Several white crystals finished off the card.

I hope you like the card ideas I shared today.

Have a wonderful day!
