Die-Cutting with Patterned Paper

by May Sukyong Park

Hello, Altenew friends! Norine here with you today to share a couple of cards made using the Folksy Florals Stamp and Die Bundle!

Altenew FolksyFlorals NorineB 1I am particularly drawn to basic stamping on die-cuts made of simple patterned papers and I wanted to do that with the Folksy Florals set.  I went through my patterned paper stash drawer looking for scrap pieces with the most basic of pattern designs, (usually tone-on-tone) and then I die cut an assortment of shapes with the Folksy Florals die set. After that, I began to layer them and build up the simple floral shapes I've used on these cards. I brushed the edges of the floral shapes and flower centers with a foam applicator and some Crisp Dye Inks in matching tones and stamped the leaf textures and stem lines in Moss and Evergreen inks.

For the card above, I added some hand-drawn doodle lines to frame the opening and to tie it to the stamped sentiment and for the second card, I felt there was enough going on with colors and patterns to leave the stamped sentiment to stand alone. The sentiments on both cards are created from the assorted sentiment choices of the Folksy Florals Stamp Set.
