ALTENEW BUILD-A-FLOWER: FUCHSIA

Hi everyone! Welcome to Altenew’s Build-a Flower: Fuschia release! You have arrived from the blog of the amazing EMILY MIDGETT. Just in case you are lost, the master list will be at the end of this blog post and at the Altenew Card Blog where this stamp set release is being hosted. Take a look at this beautiful stamp and die set!!!

BUILD A FLOWER: FUCHSIA

Below are 2 samples of cards I made for this stamp set using the stamp layering technique and the no line watercolor technique.

SMILE BIG CARD

MATERIALS:

I decided not to use the stems for this flower and just use the flowers, buds and leaves to create a focal point. The mid-century frame die was used to create a frame using white cardstock. Two of them were layered to add more rays. The flowers were then stamped using the different layers then the flowers were arranged using adhesive and foam tape for dimension.

I always die cut scratch paper to act as a template when lining up the die with the stamped image to make sure the white outline around the image is uniform.

The sentiment from the Circled Sentiments was stamped using the Obsidian pigment ink then embossed with clear embossing powder.

CONGRATULATIONS CARD

MATERIALS:

I had a booboo 🙁 After carefully stamping and masking my card front, I didn’t realize that the magnet of my Misti somehow had ink underneath it so when I lifted it from the card front, this was what I saw. 🙁

So instead of starting all over again with stamping and masking, I just decide to cover up the area with a watercolored sentiment strip. 🙂

I chose to make a simple no-line coloring card front by stamping the images using Distress Ink Antique Linen then colored them in with Altenew’s watercolor brush markers. A few of the flowers were stamped then the rest of the cardfront was filled with leaves. The stems were painted freehand after stamping the leaves randomly. The flower was masked so that I could layer one on top of the other.

I also inked the edges of the card front and sentiment strip with Versmark Ink and then heat embossed with Rose Gold embossing powder to add a touch of shimmer at the edges of the card.

Since I had extra flowers and leaves, I decided to fussy cut them and adhere them to the card front with foam tape for better balance and to add more dimension.

    I just want to say what a lovely webshop you have made! I am a customer of your website and really like your products. I had visited your webshop last week, and I saw a very nice product i wanna order. But I have a question! Today I wanted to order it, but can not find the item anymore in your store. Mail me if you are going to sell it again. I’ll wait.
