monthly callaI have 3 quick projects to share with you using this new set, 2 of which are super quick and easy!

Altenew CAFCallaLily6I tried to work a little outside my comfort zone on this first project with 2 things: using a card base other than white and attempting watercolor. First, I heat embossed the image and then added watercolor in carefully.  Once the image was dry, I cut it out using the Nesting Oval Dies.

Altenew CAFCallaLily5I added the oval with foam tape to a scored card front. I stamped the sentiment Build-A-Flower: Lavender Layering Stamp Set in Obsidian Pigment Ink. This ink makes the most amazing crisp images!

Altenew CAFCallaLily4Here is a way to use this stamp set with a non-coloring method. Using a super easy color blocking technique, I made the next 2 coordinating cards.

Altenew CAFCallaLily3I chose 3 colors of cardstock and heat embossed the image on each panel. Next, I cut them down into equal strips so I could layer them back together easily. I adhered each panel onto a white card base.

Altenew CAFCallaLily2I used the same stamp set, Build-A-Flower: Lavender Layering Stamp Set for the sentiments on all of today's cards.  I love the little pop of black contrast the Obsidian Pigment Ink adds.

Altenew CAFCallaLily1I hope you have enjoyed today's Calla Lily projects. Thank you so much for stopping by today!
