Hi there! Today, Altenew has a very special release and blog hop today: the Majestic Bouquet Stamp Set, which is an absolutely massive 8″ x 11″ layering stamp set featuring gorgeous blooms, foliage, and heartfelt sentiments! We are celebrating this release with a blog hop, and you can find the entire hop list at the end of this post. Your next stop will be Jaycee Gaspar.
Let's take a closer look at this stamp set which is the very first of its kind in this new stamp category!
Make a huge statement with this 8″ x 11″ stamp set! This is our first-ever stamp set in our largest stamp size category. We hope it inspires you to create projects that are bigger, bolder, and drop-dead gorgeous! The set features two beautiful layering flowers illustrated in a loosely painted style, plus a collection of leaves. The matching flowers and leaves from the Majestic Bloom 3D Embossing Folder perfectly coordinate in size and will allow you to take your gorgeous flower to the next level by giving it extra dimension! You may stamp the flower and leaves separately, or use the included pattern template to stamp the design to perfectly match the folder. We hope you enjoy creating with this versatile stamp set!

I have always loved delicate, super detailed chinoiserie patterns, and the new Majestic Bouquet Stamp Set immediately put me in mind of these beautiful patterns. Majestic Bouquet features stamps to create vibrant, layered flowers as well as amazingly detailed outline stamps that are great for coloring, or as I've shown in my project, heat embossed onto colored cardstock to show off the details!
I began by trimming down a panel of cornflower blue cardstock slightly smaller than A2 size. Whenever I am going to be doing a lot of heat embossing, I want to try to minimize as many excess flakes of embossing powder as possible, so I treated the entire panel liberally with anti-static powder tool. I then used Altenew's Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder to heat emboss the blooms and foliage outlines on the entire panel, beginning with the largest images (the flowers), then adding the largest foliage, and then filling in the gaps with the smallest foliage to create a custom patterned panel. The detail of the stamps contrasts beautifully with the crisp white embossing on the blue cardstock.
Once I had completed my embossing, I used a white pencil to add some shading to some of the petals and leaves, just to add a bit more depth and detail to the images and help them stand out even further from the pretty blue background.
I heat embossed a greeting from the new Majestic Bouquet Stamp Set, one of the many beautiful sentiments included on this extra large stamp set, again using the Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder and another piece of the cornflower blue cardstock. I backed the sentiment rectangle with a slightly larger piece of white cardstock to make it pop from the patterned background. Then I adhered the patterned panel using the new Instant Dimension Foam Adhesive onto a full size A2 panel of white cardstock to mat the pattern with crisp white, and then adhered the sentiment with some more foam tape for tons of dimension. Finally, I added a few iridescent white pearls for a bit of added texture and shine.
