A bit of Inspiration

I am so lucky to kick off the hop with a few of my projects. So, let's get started!

@altenew_Storybook Fantasy collection release

My first card features the new Storybook Framed 3D Embossing Folder in the background of the card panel. The new Detailed Blending Brushes are the perfect tools to help bring the new Hill Blossoms Layering Stencils to life.  All you need is a simple sentiment from the new Once Upon A Time Stamp Set to complete the card.

The new Detailed Blending Brushes are perfect to bring a simple stencil to live. The small angled design of the bristles lets you create dimension in a 2D image. I used one of my favorite stencils, Floral Garden Stencil, a bit of ink, and the brushes for this card. All it needs is a simple sentiment using Thanks Die. Just simple and detailed!

Of course, there are gorgeous floral stamps in this release. The new Book Engravings Stamp & Die Bundle is gorgeous. I added a soft gray ink shadow just to bring all the details of the flower to life. I am replacing the leaves with a few of the leaves from the Floating Foliage 3D Embossing Folder (I simply cut the leaves from the embossed panel). The final touch is a sentiment from the new Modern Swans Stamp Set.

There are so many possibilities with the new Storybook Fantasy release collection that I am combining quite a few of the new products into two clean and simple cards.
