Orchids Layering Card #1: Best Wishes (Vellum, Ink-Blending, Splatter, Spray-Ink, and Die-Cutting)

0120-2023-Altenew-Craft-A-Flower Orchids-Mini Instant Camera Frame DieI've always loved white orchids. I imagine that vellum will be a good idea to try as petals. The Vellum Translucent Paper is ideal for creating delicate orchid petals. 0120-2023-Altenew-Craft-A-Flower Orchids-Mini Instant Camera Frame Die-002For the orchid center, I applied Artist Markers (Crimson and Violet) to the vellum and let it dry. Using the guide on the package, I easily assembled the orchid flowers. As for the stems, I previously ink-sprayed and die cut the paper.

0120-2023-Altenew-Craft-A-Flower Orchids-Mini Instant Camera Frame Die-001Notice the details of the sentiment? I trimmed off part of the Mini Instant Camera Frame Die. This is a great way to stretch this very versatile die set.

0120-2023-Altenew-Craft-A-Flower Orchids-Mini Instant Camera Frame Die-003For the background, I ink-blended a touch of yellow (Citrus Burst) and pink (Baby Pink)  and added a few splatters (Frosty Pink Metallic Shimmer Ink Spray). The Satin White Sequins are perfect embellishments for this.

Orchids Layering Card #2: Happy Birthday (Ink-Blending, Stencil, Die-Cutting)

0120-2023-Altenew-Craft-A-Flower Orchids-Double Rainbow Stencil-Well Read Stamp Set -002This Craft-A-Flower Orchids Layering Die Set is perfect for any orientation. Here, I changed it to a horizontal design.

0120-2023-Altenew-Craft-A-Flower Orchids-Double Rainbow Stencil-Well Read Stamp Set -001I was inspired by the vibrant orchid color combo that I always see in my local flower shop. I applied pink (Cherry Blossom) and purple (Shades of Purple) onto a Classic Crest Solar Cardstock (80 lbs). The “happy birthday” sentiment is from the “Well Read Stamp Set.”

0120-2023-Altenew-Craft-A-Flower Orchids-Double Rainbow Stencil-Well Read Stamp Set -003Next, using the Volcano Lake Crisp Dye Ink, I made a subtle stenciled background with the “Double Rainbow Stencil.”  You'd agree that the Enamel Dots are simply spot on!

Orchids Layering Card #3: With Heartfelt Thanks (Die-Cutting, Embossing Folder, and Ink-Blending)

0120-2023-Altenew-Craft-A-Flower Orchids-Window Slatts 3D Embossing Folder-Sentiment Strips 3 Stamp Set (2)These flowers were created in a similar manner as Card #2. I did change up the background a bit by tilting the Window Slats Embossing Folder.

01-20-2023-Altenew-Craft-A-Flower Orchids-Window Slatts 3D Embossing Folder-Sentiment Strips 3 Stamp SetI love the subtle color of the Lavender Field Cardstock and thought it makes a great pairing with the orchid flower colors (as seen in Card #2 too).

Oh my gosh! These are all so different from each other! They are absolutely magnificent! Some look so delicate and soft, some look so realistic and Joy’s takes me to some sort of fantasy world! I also really enjoy seeing how you change your backgrounds up! These are exquisite! Thank you Team Altenew!
