Today I did some stamp layering with these beautiful Peonies from Altenew.
Now this is something you don’t see from me everyday is it? I’ve had this stamp set for a while and finally broke down and gave it a try. My main image is from the Peonies Bouquet stamp set from Altenew. They have some gorgeous flower stamp sets! They also have lots of other goodies but my pocketbook can only afford so much lol.
For the flowers, I definitely used my Misti tool to stamp these. It makes things SO much easier. I stamp layered the images using inks from Gina K. Of course, I was just messing around and didn’t write the colors down so I apologize for that. I have Gina’s full collection of mini ink cubes so I just looked up the swatch color and tried to pick colors that went well together for each layer.
My background for this card I used the Stone Wall Stencil from Altenew with Antique Linen Oxide ink. I trimmed the panel down using the Stitched Rectangle die from Simon Says Stamp and added to an A2 size cardbase with craft foam. My cardbase I created with Sandy Beach cardstock from Gina K Designs.
The sentiment is heat embossed on black cardstock with white embossing powder. I used this beautiful sentiment from Halftone Hearts stamp set and embellished with the gorgeous Ivory jewels from Pretty Pink Posh.
When I was stamping, I did the flowers twice in case I messed up on one I had another ready. Fortunately, they both worked so I could make two cards! Bonus!
This card is quite bold. I used the Graffiti Stencil from Altenew with Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink. I also trimmed this panel down using the Stitched Rectangle Die from Simon Says Stamp. I then added to an A2 size cardbase with craft foam.
This sentiment is also from the Halftone Hearts stamp set in which I heat embossed on black cardstock and trimmed down. I added the sentiment to my card with a skinny strip of foam tape.
This time I added some sequins from Neat & Tangled using my jewel picker and Gina K Connect glue.
I really enjoyed creating these cards. It’s fun to stamp layer and will be certainly be doing more in the future.
