Get to know Olga!

Hello! I am Olga Moss and I'm so happy to be back here at Altenew's blog as a guest designer. I started my paper crafting life back in 2010. preferred to create scrapbook album and pages back in those days. Then, in 2016, I changed my preferences to card-making because there is a whole beautiful world in every small card!

Today, I want to show you three cards that I made with Altenew products. What do we want in winter after Christmas? I think, more floral cards! So I want to show you three ways to make floral cards.

Olga's Watercolor Card

The first card is a watercolor card. I like to use watercolor sometimes when playing with materials. This way you don't need too many supplies, but you can create a whole picture on one small piece of paper. Isn't that like magic? And now I want to talk about the Build-A-Flower: Poppy set. In this set, we have some silhouettes that we can use without stamping, just for coloring.

ALTENEW GUEST POST OLGA MOSS 1First, I stamped the flowers and leaves with Rocky Shore Crisp Dye Ink on watercolor paper. Then I took my wet paintbrush and went over them with water to blend them and give them a watercolored look.

Floral Thank You Card with Dies

For my second card, I used Leaf Frame Cover Die and Wild Rose 3D Die SetI started with covering up a piece of paper with Leaf Frame and die-cutting it. Then I colored every leaf using pencils and splattered them with white paint.

Once it was dry, I die cut the roses and glued them together using liquid glue. I repeated the process for the leaves.

Olga's Vintage Card

The last card looks like an open book page. For an impressive effect, I decided to give the card a vintage look.

Next, I decorated it all with stamped flowers from the Flower Arrangement Stamp Set and adding branches from the Forever and a Day Die Set. I think the card came out fabulous.
