Stamp Focus: Dahlia Blossoms

by Anna Kossakovskaya

Hello! Anna is here today to highlight Dahlia Blossoms set. I made three different cards with three different usings of this set, but I'm sure you can find even more ways to used this beautiful set! This is my favorite kind of Altenew's stamps – you can stamp flowers as multi-layered stamps or just stamp the silhouettes and color them! Well, I still have some ideas about dahlias.

Altenew Stamp Focus: Dahlia Blossoms @akossakovskaya @altenew #cardmaking #altenew

The first card is very clean and simple, I used only dahlias and leaves silhouettes here – I made thewhite embossing of them on Pale Gray Cardstock and then blended the edges a little with Evening Gray Crisp Dye Ink to add some shadow effect. After blending I cut the rectangle with the stitched effect.

This gray panel I glued to the card base with thefoam tape and added a great phrase from Beautiful Quotes.

The second card is an another duet of Dahlia Blossoms and Beautiful Quotes sets, but here I stamped all layers of the flowers (I used Crisp Inks with colors Peach PerfectCaramel Toffee and Paper Bag), for leaves I took two bottom solid layers and the lightest green inks. Then I fussy cut all flowers and leaves.

The background is made with Wood Pallet Background stamp – I used Evening Gray Crisp Dye Ink to stamp the texture and to blend it. And also I added some dots with Snowing stamp and cut it with the scalloped rectangle die from my collection. The sentiment I white embossed on the black cardstock and cut lines separately.

And the third card for today is also clean and simple. While training with stampting these dahlias I realized that they look very interesting, if to use two bottom solid layers witout out-line stamps, and I decided to make the entire background filled with the flowers. For dahlias I used here Frosty Pink and Ruby Red Crisp Dye Inks. Also I added two layers from pink and red cardstock and the sentiment from Label Love set.
