Hello! Happy Monday! In this month’s Stamp Focus post I am focusing on the gorgeous Sparkled Stamp Set. And I will be creating three showstopping cards that are really easy to recreate.
Firstly, my favorite go-to layout is building a background by popping up the images. To do this, I first heat embossed several flowers and leaves on a teal-colored cardstock in Antique Gold Embossing Ink.
Next, I used a Small Blending Tool and Galactic Stream Dye Ink and applied ink onto the center of the flowers. And the leaves were completely inked so that they would stand out next to the edges of the petals. I used the coordinating dies to die cut the images. After this, I added tons of splatters onto the images using golds from the 14 Pan Metallic Watercolor Set.
For my second card, I started by stamping the outline image in Galactic Stream Dye Ink. And this is for my reference only as I will stamp over this again and heat emboss. Next, I will stamp the two detailed layers in Teal Cave Dye Ink and Galactic Stream Dye Ink respectively. After this, I will dry the image completely with my heat tool. And then, I will stamp the outline again but this time in Embossing Ink and then pour over Antique Gold Embossing Ink.
For interest, I die-cut the Burlap Texture Die out of Gold Foil Cardstock. To extend the die-cut, I snipped it in half and adhered it onto the card front. But before doing this, I added black paint splatters onto the background. Next, I adhered all the images on foam tape. Then I added tons of gold splatters. And popped up the sentiment. After this, finished off the card by adhering Satin Gold Sequins.
Lastly, I wanted to finish off with a light, airy looking card. As you can see, I heat embossed the image but this time I chose to watercolor it using the same two dye inks. To color the leaves, I used Mocha and Espresso Dye Inks.
To add interest, I heat stamped and heat embossed a border using Striped Circle Stamp Set on Spicy Yogurt Cardstock. Additionally, I adhered a Gold Foil Creative Edges: Lace die-cut to the heat embossed panel. Then I adhered this onto the Spicy Yogurt Cardstock card front. And adhered the floral arrangement plus the sentiment.
I followed the same color palette throughout give or take. The only reason I changed the card base colors was to show you the range in variety and how different a single color can look on different card bases.
You can watch the video below or on YouTube. I am sharing how I made ALL three cards.
I hope you liked the cards I created using the Sparkled Stamp Set. If you share your creations using the same stamp set, don’t forget to tag Altenew @altenew or me @glitternswirls on Instagram or use the hashtag #altenew.
