Stamp Focus: Dainty Swiss Dots 4 Ways

by Norine

Hello, Altenew friends! I'm back today with some cards that showcase a few different Altenew products, but the beginning of each was inspired by the recently released Dainty Swiss Dots Stamp Set.

Then I sponge inked the cardstock with a variety of ink colors; for the blue/green cards – Ocean Waves, Sweet Leaf and Olive, and for the pink/blue cards – Puffy Heart, Lavender Fields and Persian Blue, being careful to overlap each color with the one beside it for a smooth, seamless color blend.

I cut extra letters for the word “Thanks” so that I could build them up by adhering the layers.

I stamped several sets of the smaller flower and leaf images from the Adore You Stamp Set and cut each without coloring them. I wanted the black and white graphic design to be a contrast to the colorful polka dotted card fronts.

For the card front, I scored evenly spaced lines to add some simple texture and added a couple of sweet little blooms and leaves.

Then I adhered the polka dot letters to a stitched rectangle die-cut that I matted with some coordinating green cardstock and popped it all up with foam tape.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

These are fantastic! I love the way you blended the inks over the embossed dots. I think the die cut letters are wonderful! I really like the look of them with the ink and dots and the flowers are a beautiful, elegant addition. They make a beautiful background.
