Stamp Focus: Ruffled Flowers

by Virginia Lu

Hello, Altenew friends! It's Virginia here. It gives me great pleasure to share 3 projects with you today. Ruffled Flowers is one of the most popular stamp sets from the December 2018 Stamp/Die/Paper Pack Release. It is easy to line up each layer and offers a ton of details without much effort. I am using 3 different types of medium to showcase this set.

Altenew-RuffledFlowersStampDie-Virginia#1Let's start with the very eye-catching colored card! I set out to create my own colorful paper with Altenew's Ink Sprays. The mixed colors of Puffy Heart, Cosmic Berry, Sunkissed and Orange Cream from the November 2018 Ink Spray Bundle are simply gorgeous! I only need to spray a few spritz of water to facilitate the colors to mix. The hardest part? It's waiting for it to dry. I let it dry naturally, but you can use a heat tool if you are in a hurry!

Altenew-RuffledFlowersStampDie-Virginia#2Once dried, I stamped the two outline images with Embossing Ink and heat embossed them in Pure White Embossing Powder. I then popped the die-cut images slightly over the edges with Jet Black Cardstock. The white-embossed sentiment from Ruffled Flowers fits perfectly. Even better, the Rock Collection Enamel Dots complete the design with a polished look.
My next card, “YOU ARE IN MY thoughts” is a soft and subdued version. plan was to create borders with the masking of outline images. Here I used Cloudy Night from Gentleman's Gray Oval Set. With the matching die from Ruffled Flowers, the masking was quick and easy to do. I simply ran a piece of copy paper with Ruffled Flowers Die through my Mini Blossom Die Cutting Machine. then stamped two images with Pocketful of Sunshine and Gentleman's Gray and lined them up with the masked borders. The bottom grey area was left uncolored as it fits the sentiment more aptly. I also took the liberty in using assorted colors of Enamel Dots.

My last card was a bright and glitzy one.Altenew-RuffledFlowersStampDie-Virginia#7
The coloring was so bright and cheery thanks to the Midnight Blue from Watercolor Brush Markers (Spring Garden). With Vellum Translucent Paper in place, I topped it off with the” love” from Script Words Die Set and “U” from Fine Alphabet Die Set.

The Silver Glitter Tape and sequins are just the right embellishments for this.

I hope today's post gives you extra ideas and inspiration with the versatile Ruffled Flowers.

3 stunning cards – all very different using the same stamp. You’re so clever Virginia. Loved them all – perhaps the first one just edged its way in front, just a fraction. Merry Christmas to you and yours. Thanks so much for sharing.
