Dynamic Duo: Dainty Roses

With five stamps, the Dynamic Duo: Dainty Roses Stamp Set adds intricate details to the stenciled rose cluster. Stamp in dark hues for added impact. It also includes ten occasion-ready sentiments for versatile handmade card creations.

 

The Dynamic Duo: Dainty Roses Stencil Set showcases dainty rose clusters with subtle details hinting at their delicacy. Align and ink the layers to create a captivating arrangement, perfect for crafting swift and charming handmade cards.

 

This new Dynamic Duo release is a perfect combination of classic design and simplicity.  The design of the florals creates a beautiful and customizable floral spray that can be used for all your projects.  However, today we are going to take a look at how we can further use this set for a memory-keeping layout with a twist.

Memory-Keeping Layout, with a Touch of Flair and Dainty Roses

@altenew_adding a touch of flair to memory keeping layouts by Nathalie DeSousaI wanted to bring a touch of flair to this memory-keeping layout by creating a see-through dashboard/title page.  The idea of showing a peek of what is inside the album is a great welcoming page, however having all the beautiful Dynamic Duo: Dainty Roses frame the view makes it just that more special.

@altenew_adding a touch of flair to memory keeping layouts by Nathalie DeSousaIt started with creating all the blooms.  For this, I used the Dynamic Duo: Dainty Roses, and Fresh Dye Inks to create all the roses.  However, my choice was to separate the flowers from the spray, this allowed me a bit of freedom when forming the floral clusters in the page.

In the same way, I used the stencil to repeat only the leaves part of the design.  Having the separate elements allowed me to bring that touch of flair to memory-keeping layouts.

However, I took it to another level by adding a floating title to the page.  This called for two well-aligned exact die cuts, or -like on this page- a folded piece of paper.

@altenew_adding a touch of flair to memory keeping layouts by Nathalie DeSousaI love how easy it was to go about adding a touch of flair to memory-keeping layouts.  I also have a video that shows how it all came together.  Watch it here, or in HD on the Altenew YouTube channel:

I cannot wait to see how you will apply this idea to your projects!
