Hello crafty friends! It's Laurie Willison here today with several new cards, using the new Gradient Cardstock Sets. Altenew just released 4 new packs of cardstock. These packs make things like the Craft-A-Flower dies, super easy to put together. Not to mention, the papers coordinate with Altenew's ink, in all the gorgeous colors!
Each pack as 3-4 colors of cardstock, ranging from light to dark, that work perfectly with the Craft-A-Flower die sets. Today, I am using the Red Sunset pack, along with a previously released, Green Meadows pack with the amazing Craft-A-Flower: Poppy Die Set.
Using the Classy Stripes Stencil, I added in a little striped detail, along with some black and white paint mist. The Thank You sentiment is from the stamp set called Tranquilty Rose. I just love that font!
Another great use for the Gradient Cardstock Sets, is to create a simple ombre background.
After stamping this gorgeous bloom from Pen Sketched Flowers directly on the white card base, I added the cardstock from the Rose Petal Cardstock Set to another white panel. I stamped again so the flower would work perfectly when lined up back on the white card front.
Altenew's glue tape works perfectly to adhere the 3 pieces directly to the card front. Using one of the sentiments from the same floral stamp set, I stamped the sentiment in Obsidian Black Ink to finish off the card.
Using a light gray card base, I added in the white cardstock Striped Leave Cover Die, for a little extra detail. Altenew's new foam tape works great to give the Mini Clusters dimension from the card front.
To finish off the card, I used the hello sentiment die from the Hello and Hugs Die Set.
Thanks for coming by today! Hope you have a great day!
