Craft Your Life Project Kit: Bewitching Rose Stamp & Stencil Set Layering Guide

The kit's designs are so inspiring that they gave me tons of ideas to try. I love the composition and the large size of the image.

Creativity Unlocked feat. Craft Your Life Project Kit: Bewitching RoseI started out by ink-blending a warm background with Mocha and Almond Butter. The Large Ink Blending Brushes make this task super easy to do. I also added splatter with Antique Gold Metallic Ink Spray.

11182022-Craft Your Life-Bewitching Rose-003For the image, I stenciled the leaves (Grassfield, Limeade, Marshland, Mountain Pine) and flowers (Strawberry, Baby Pink, Pastel Sunrise, Coral Bliss, Canyon Clay, and Velvet).

11182022-Craft Your Life-Bewitching Rose-002Once I stenciled the image, I made the die-cut and then pressed the image over the coordinating Embossing Folder.

First, you start with die-cutting the image. Then, carefully position the die inside the embossing folder. You can check the alignment by looking through the light.

Altenew CYLPK Bewitching Rose Watercolor Brush Markers 1wm Erum Tasneem

Life isn't perfect, but… this breathtaking card by Erum DEFINITELY is! She did some messy watercoloring using the stamp image in the kit and added a watercolor wash in the background. Doesn't this give you lovely fall vibes?

The rose image in this kit is so fun to color with any of your fave coloring mediums! Emily used the incredibly beautiful 3D embossing folder in the kit for her background. She ensured that the embossed area would extend beyond her alcohol marker-colored die-cut to add extra texture and detail. Read more here.

Altenew CYLBewitchingRose 1 Mindy Eggen

The best thing about this kit? You can add colors easily with the help of the coordinating stencil set! We love how Mindy went the extra mile by adding a gorgeous ink-blended background too. Read more here.

Altenew Bewichting Rose 1 Lilith Eeckels

For added interest, create a 3D embossed background using your favorite patterned paper and the embossing folder in the kit – just like Lilith did! She embossed the image using a subtle patterned paper from the Celebrate 6×6 Paper Pack. Read more here.

Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit Bewitching Rose A Jenny Colacicco

We are head over heels in love with Jenny's bi-fold card! TIP! White heat-emboss the images before adding colors with the coordinating stencil. Jenny used our Hawaiian Shores Brush Pens in her card. Find out more here.
