Hello, Altenew friends! This is Virginia here. Have you checked out the new release yet? I know it is a lot to take in since there are SO many fabulous stamps, dies, stencils, and inks! Today, we will focus on stamping Geometric Elements Stamp & Die Bundle in 3 cool ways. I hope that you will want to get creative after today's post.
Idea #1: Stamp and/or emboss.
When you first get a stamp set like Geometric Elements, simply stamp or emboss to get the creative juices flowing. The first thing I did with this set was to white-emboss all the images and watercolor them.
With the Altenew Artists Watercolor 24 Pan Set, I had so much fun watercoloring the white-embossed geometric pieces. If you ever want to do swatches with your coloring, I would recommend this set, as well.
Once the pieces were dry, I ran them with my Mini Blossom Die Cutting Machine and had lots of colorful pieces to work with. Based on the colors and shapes, I kept them as streamlined as much as possible. I then stamped the sentiment with Fancy Greetings Stamp Set in Antique Gold Pigment Ink.
The colorful geometric shapes do speak volumes. All you need are a few Satin White Sequins to embellish.
I decided to use the backside of the gold-embossed vellum because it looks like those fancy design papers. I then positioned the water-colored heart piece over along with the stamped sentiment. The card would not be complete without Antique Gold Thread and Sequins!
With this design, you can totally create various themes such as Love, Valentine's Day, Anniversary, Hello, Thank-you, and Congratulations cards.
Idea #3: Stamp a frame with Geometric Elements!
With the triangle stamp, I created a frame by stamping at each corner. Adding a floral design (Build-a-Flower Primrose) really softens the touches. The inks I used for the Primrose are: Hazelnut, Sunray, Marigold, and Razzleberry Crisp Dye Inks.
Can you see the shine!? A little bit of glitter glue (Stickles) goes a long way!
I added a touch of glitter, and the card really shines like a diamond! It's amazing what stamps and dies can do! I hope this post provides some helpful ideas with Geometric Elements Stamp Set. Thank you for stopping by!
