Hello and Welcome
I have a few cards to share with you on my blog today. These cards are made uisng Altenew Stamp and die set called “Always there”. I have used Altenew stencils and nuvo glimmer paste to create beautiful backgrounds for my cards.
Here are my cards for today.
Four different stencils have been used in these cards with Nuvo Glimmer Paste. My favorite is the Leaf Burst Stencil.
The Focal Point:
My focus for these cards are the beautiful stamp set from Altenew. It’s called Always There. This stamp set is a layering stamp. It comes with a few different layered images which you can stamp in different shades of the same color that gives these images a more realistic look. I love layering stamps because I don’t have to color each images if i don’t like to. For these flowers I did color the details with Faber Castell Polichromos pencils to give them more depth and dimension.
The flowers are arranged on the background panel some using just liquid glue and some using foam tape for dimensions.
I used three different shades of Altenew Die Inks for these flowers. Yellows, Pinks and Reds and the leaves are stamped in Greens.
The sentiments are used from another stamp set from Altenew called I Adore You. The sentiments are stamped on a black strip of card stock in Versamark Ink then embossed using Wow Embossing powder in detail white.
Then I cut the sentiments using Simon Says Stamp Die.
I layered the stenciled panel on a color card stock that coordinates with each flower cluster. Then mounted them on the card base.
The card base is standard A2 size card bases with 110lb Neenah Cardstock.
I really loved how these cards turned out in the end. Let me know what you think in the comment down below. I love reading comments.
I have another post using same stamp set here if you are interested in reading that. This one uses a special technique.
