For today's celebration hop, I have 5 card projects to share with you. The release is so filled with beautiful designs that it was hard to pick a favorite!
The new Our Friendship Blooms Stamp Set is gorgeous and so simple to layer. The blooms come to live with bursts of pink and light greens (Cherry Blossoms Crisp Dye Ink Mini Set, Spring Bouquet Crisp Dye Ink Set); while the embossed background – Organic Linen Embossing Folder – adds dimension to the card. The sentiment comes from the same stamp set. Simple but colorful!
Since I love the first card, I just repeated the same setting for my next project. However, this time, there are pops of deeper pinks and a smaller textured background. This time, I am using a small tag to attach the sentiment to the floral bundle. For this, I am using a sentiment from the Tall Foliage Stamp Set and a bit of twine to tie the tag to the die-cut.
The new Fresh Cut Roses Stamp Set is beautiful. There are so many ways to personalize it using your favorite coloring medium. For this card, I am adding texture to the panel with a bit of Antique Gold Crisp Embossing Powder and then detailing the flowers with Altenew's Artist Watercolor 24 Pan Set. I used a sentiment from the Fresh Cut Roses Stamp Set to finish the card.
Lastly, I am sharing this set of cards (and video tutorial) using a combination of products from the Love & Friendship release.
I am using soft mixed media backgrounds for the cards (Mixed Media Inks, Grid Stencil), then pairing them with simple stamped images. This card features images from the Tall Foliage Stamp Set and a sentiment from the Our Friendship Blooms Stamp Set.
This card features a soft mixed media background (Mixed Media Inks, Leaf Bed Stencil). The Fresh Cut Roses Stamp creates the focal point of the card. A bit of shading with the Altenew Fine Liner Journaling Pen Set just adds dimension to the flower. The sentiment is from the Tall Foliage Stamp Set, and it is set on a vellum band at the center of the card panel. You can see how these cards come together in the following video.
