Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit: Garden Rose Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)

Hello, everyone! Welcome to my blog! If you just came from Reiko Tsuchida, you’re on the right track. For complete information about this hop, visit the Altenew Card Blog. Take a look at this gorgeous kit!

CRAFT YOUR LIFE: GARDEN ROSE

I created a few simple and quick cards to make and one that takes a little more time to color. Here are some examples I made using this kit.


BE YOURSELF


STEPS:

  1. Cover Neenah Solar White Cardstock using Sea Shore Washi tapes leaving a thin space for the paper to show.
  2. Emboss with Garden Rose 3D embossing folder.
  3. Die cut white cardstock using Rounded Rectangle Die. Add Versamark Ink to the edges and emboss with Rose Gold embossing powder.
  4. Stamp and emboss the sentiment from the Dainty Swiss Dots Stamp set.
  5. Assemble card using foam squares.

Here’s a CAS card with lots of texture. I love the effect of the 3D embossing folder on washi tape. Sometimes, there will be some tear here and there but that just adds more interest to the card.


HOPE YOUR DAY IS FAB & YOU ARE APPRECIATED


STEPS:

  1. Ink up the top cover of the 3D embossing folder with Caribbean Sky Mixed Media Ink and emboss white cardstock. Do the same using Frosty Pink Mixed Media Ink.
  2. Die cut the center using Halftone Squares Die set. Switch the enters and mat using silver cardstock.
  3. Add a card base. If you do not have colored cardstock, use the Mixed Media inks to color the paper to match your embossed layer.
  4. Assemble the card using foam squares.

This is another quick card to make. I love how intricate the roses are and the white highlights just make it look more 3D.


YOU ARE SO LOVED


STEPS:

  1. Stamp on watercolor paper with Versamark and emboss with Rose Gold Embossing Powder the rose image from the kit . Stamp on masking paper and cut out the image. Mask the stamped image on the paper and stamp the leaves. Create a mask for the leaves then stamp and emboss another rose. Continue to stamp-emboss-mask to create the layered images.
  2. Watercolor the petals and leaves using the following Watercolor brush markers: Purple Wine, Persian Blue, Lagoon and Turquoise. Use the wet on wet technique.
  3. Add a light wash on the outer surface of the flowers and leaves.
  4. Add spatters including black ink.
  5. Die cut the center using Nesting Labels die.
  6. Emboss the sentiment with Pure White embossing powder on black cardstock.
  7. Assemble card.

The stamp masking took a while to do but I love the outcome with all the layering! I also do not normally put the stamped images on the right side of the card… I tend to arrange them on the lower-left corner or the left side of the card. This time, I wanted to try something different. I placed the sentiment on the opposite side of the stamped image for more balance. Let me know if you like this layout. 🙂
