3 Beautiful Floral Card Making Styles

by May Sukyong Park

Hello, Altenew friends! Norine back with you today with three new cards created using the Simple Roses Stamp & Die & Mask Stencil Bundle released just yesterday. This is another beautifully well-rounded stamp set with 3 large blooms, 2 leaves, and a small stemmed bud, plus a large variety of mix-&-match sentiments!

Floral Card Making StylesI used all alcohol mediums for these cards, coloring the images with the Altenew Artist Markers and using the Artist Marker Refills to create a background on one card.

Floral Card Using Altenew Simple Roses Stamp Set

Card 1

My first card is the boldest, using two of the large bloom images from the stamp set and several of the leaves. In each case, I stamped the images onto heavy white cardstock with Obsidian Pigment Ink and clear heat embossed them. It isn't necessary to do that when coloring with Artist Markers, but I like the extra crisp-ness of the outlines when I do.

First, I stamped all of the images individually, colored the flowers with the Red Cosmos Artist Markers, and the leaves with Parrot and Moss from the Tropical Forest Artist Markers. Then, I did some simple shading with the reds on the flowers, but colored the leaves very quickly with basic color blocking.

For the background of this card, I used Artist Marker Refills G804, G554, and B201 to dab color onto Yupo paper to create the background panel. Here, I was going for a “wild forest of greenery” behind the blooms, and I think this technique accomplished that nicely! The greeting on this card is a combination of two of the sentiments included in the Simple Roses Stamp Set and is stamped on black cardstock and white heat embossed.

I introduced an additional black die-cut leafy branch from the Hanging Garden Die set to complement the whole, the strong stylized outlines mimicking the stamped leaf outlines.

I often do this to no lasting harm to the stamp, as it can easily be stamped in it's original form again.

Then, I die cut them with the coordinating dies and colored them with the same Artist Marker colors indicated above.

Finally, I added a greeting from the Birthday Builder Stamp Set.

Final Touch

For each of the cards today, I added a few black enamel dots from the Green Fields enamel dots package for embellishment. As you can see, the versatility of this stamp and die set allows you to easily create designs that run the gamut from the very clean and simple to the more layered and elaborate.
