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!

One thing I absolutely love and appreciate about Altenew is how you help take the guess work out of the layering with inks, cardstock, stamps & dies…makes it easy to create a beautiful background in minutes :-)
