Altenew Educators “Floral with Geometric Elements” Blog Hop and Linky Party + Giveaway

Hello everyone!!! Welcome to the Altenew Educators’ Floral with Geometric Elements Blog Hop and giveaway! If you just came from the Altenew blog, I’d like to welcome all of you to mine!!! It is truly a thrill to be sharing this blog hop with my co-educators. We have all completed an amazing creative journey through the Altenew Educator Certification Program and each of us has definitely learned so many wonderful tips and techniques through all the amazing classes the program offers. During my time, it was Virginia Lu and Nicole Picadura who were heading the program and were so helpful and encouraging. Now, the talented Erum Tasneem has joined the group. Big, big thanks to these lovely ladies for everything that they do for the educators!!!

I have a number of cards to share so let’s get started! A few weeks back, I was in a creative rut… no inspiration at all. Some of my friends suggested to organize my craft room, learn a new technique, change my workspace etc. but what actually worked for me was making backgrounds using the Gelli plate! I love how unplanned the process is. All I had to do was make sure the colors complemented each other. And it worked! The idea to create backgrounds came from Bridgit Koopsen, an amazing mixed media artist. I had a number of backgrounds to play with and below are some of the cards that I made using the backgrounds I created using some Altenew stencils as my geometric element.


JUST BELIEVE IN YOURSELF/I’VE BEEN THINKING OF YOU


MATERIALS: WEEKEND DOODLES STAMP AND DIE, GEOMETRIC LANDSCAPE STENCIL, SENTIMENT STRIPS STAMP, VERSAMARK INK, VELLUM, NEENAH SOLAR WHITE CARDSTOCK, TOMBOW MONO MULTI LIQUID GLUE, FOAM SQUARES, ALCOHOL INKS-BOYSENBERRY, POOL, GLACIER, SAILBOAT BLUE, GOLD MIXATIVE, GELLI PLATE OTHER STAMP SETS

These are what I call my Yin and Yang cards wherein I switch the die cut parts to create two cards. For the background, I dropped alcohol inks on a Gelli plate and used a brayer to spread the inks. I let the first coat dry then placed the stencil on top and dropped a second layer of inks. When the inks were dry to touch, I removed the Geometric Landscape stencil then covered the entire surface with a thin coat of white acrylic paint. Neenah solar white cardstock was placed on top of the paint and I used a brayer to go through the entire surface. A print was then pulled from the gelli pate. It’s amazing how fun this technique was… I really couldn’t tell what the outcome would be. Random images were then stamped using black or grey for added texture.

For the “I’ve been thinking of you card”, I die cut the diamond from the center of the printed image and saved the die cut part. Working with the negative part, I adhered it to a top folding A2 card using foam squares and inserted a die cut, embossed and watercolored floral image from the Weekend Doodles stamp set. The sentiment was stamped on black cardstock and embossed using white embossing powder.

For the “Just Believe in Yourself” card, I adhered a purple cardstock on half of the card front. I added embossed floral images from the Poppy Garden Stamp set to the matted diamond die-cut and added this in the middle of the card with foam squares. I love how the weight of the flowers balanced the dark colored cardstock. The diamond at the center also serves as a geometric element.


PRAYING FOR YOU


MATERIALS: POPPY GARDEN STAMP AND DIE, COLOR BLOCK TRIANGLE STENCIL, NESTING LABEL DIE, GELLI PLATE, ALCOHOL INKS-LAGUNA, SAILBOAT BLUE, PATINA, COBALT, GLACIER, TURQUOISE, ROSE GOLD EMBOSSING POWDER, NEENAH SOLAR WHITE CARDSTOCK, VELLUM, WHITE EMBOSSING POWDER, SENTIMENT STRIPS

Here’s another card using the background I made. Same procedure as the cards above but this time using the Color Block Triangle Stencil for the geometric element. I die cut the center using the Nesting label die and popped it up with foam sheets so that the images from the Poppy Garden stamped on vellum will stand out more. I love the elegant look of the embossed gold on vellum. Just make sure to heat up your heat tool and heat the image from the back of the vellum to prevent warping.


HAPPY BIRTHDAY


MATERIALS: LEAF MIX DIE SET, MODERN CIRCLES STENCIL, ORNAMENTAL BLISS STAMP, DYE INKS-WISTERIA, MOUNTAIN MIST, SAND DUNES, ROSE GOLD EMBOSSING POWDER, NEENAH SOLAR WHITE CARDSTOCK, VELLULM

For this card, I wanted to use the Modern Circles Stencil as the geometric element. I chose 3 colors and used a distress tool to add color to the card front. The stencil was rotated and more colors added to fill up the spaces. For the leaves, I just swiped the mini ink cubes directly on the white cardstock then die cut the leaves. These were then arranged on top of vellum and layered to the card front using foam squares.

I made sure to use the same colors from the background to match the leaves. This is such a sweet birthday card and the vellum adds some softness to the card. The sentiment from the Ornamental Bliss stamp set was used for this card and embossed with Rose Gold embossing powder .


GRATEFUL FOR YOU EVERYDAY


MATERIALS: EUCALYPTUS JAR STAMP AND DIE, CRYSTAL FRAMES DIE, EMERALD GOLD WASHI TAPE, DYE INKS-SEA GLASS, MOUNTAIN MIST, VOLCANO LAKE AND LAGOON, NEENAH SOLAR WHITE CARDSTOCK, TEFLON BONE FOLDER, SCOR-PAL, FABER CASTELL POLYCHROMOS COLORED PENCILS-COBLT GREEN, LIGHT PHTHALO GREEN, VIOLET, DEEP COBALT GREEN, MAY GREEN, SCOR BOARD

I love the Eucalyptus Jar Stamp set and wanted to use it differently so I created a slim card by doing partial die cutting. First, the image was stamped on Neenah solar white cardstock using the different shades of dye inks (blue greens for the eucalyptus and Sea Glass for the jar). Colored pencils were used to add color. There are many ways to use colored pencils. I prefer to use the medium color first, the lightest next, then lastly the darkest. Just make sure to use a light hand when coloring so that you do not burnish the paper. Once the paper is burnished, you won’t be able to add colors anymore.

I then used the coordinating die to partially die cut the top part of the image. The cardstock was scored and folded. I added purple cardstock to the inside of the card to hide the back. Debossed stripes were added to the bottom of the card for texture using a bone folder and a scor board. I was happy with the outcome then I remembered that it needed a geometric element for the theme!!! 😱 Good thing I had the Crystal Frames die so I die cut one of the frames using matt gold cardstock and then embossed the sentiment with Rose gold embossing powder. I added the teal/gold washi tape on the edges to frame the image. Such a fun card to make!


THINKING OF YOU



MATERIALS: BEAUTIFUL BERGENIA 3D EMBOSSING FOLDER, CIRCLE QUILT COVER DIE, ORNAMENTAL BLISS STAMP, ROSE GOLD EMBOSSING POWDER, DISTRESS OXIDE INKS-BUNDLED SAGE AND MERMAID LAGOON, GOLD TREASURE GLIDING POLISH, NEENAH SOLAR WHITE CARDSTOCK, BLACK CARDSTOCK

I seldom use black when I make cards but I’m loving the effect that the black cardstock gives when matched with an embossing folder and some inks. I was inspired by Bubblescrap and wanted to try her technique. First, I cut a piece of black cardstock then embossed it with the Beautiful Bergenia 3D embossing folder. I added color to the entire surface of the paper using a distress tool and my inky finger AFTER embossing. The creaminess of the oxide inks makes it easy to apply. When this was dry, I added some gold touches on the embossed parts of the flowers and leaves with a gold gliding polish. Gold cardstock was added to mat the embossed piece.

For my geometric element, the Circle Quilt cover die was used that added a nice contrast to the black cardstock. I stacked 4 pieces on top of each other for more dimension. The sentiment was stamped on black using Versamark ink then embossed with Rose gold embossing powder.


MAKE A WISH/YOU ARE LOVED


MATERIALS: POPPY GARDEN STAMP AND DIE SET, CIRCLE QUIT COVER DIE, STACKED DIAMONDS COVER DIE, HELLO HYDRANGEA STAMP, ROSE GOLD EMBOSSING POWDER, ALCOHOL INKS: BOYSENBERRY, GLACIER, PURPLE TWILIGHT, WILD PLUM, MERMAID, PIÑATA GOLD, NEENAH SOLAR WHITE CS, YUPO PAPER, VERSMARK INK, 99% ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL

“DON’T BE AFRAID TO FAIL. BE AFRAID NOT TO TRY.”

MICHAEL JORDAN

Lately, I have been trying out alcohol inks. I had them for many years but never really used them for fear of the unknown. 🙂 Their reaction to alcohol or blending solution is so unpredictable but I thought they’d look pretty on Altenew florals. I took some classes with @anujaaggarwal— a talented alcohol ink artist because I wanted to learn how these inks behave using different techniques. There’s still so much to learn but you’ll never know if you don’t try. Here are some of the cards I made using alcohol inks.

If you do plan to try this out, here are some tips you should follow:

  • work in a room that is well ventilated. If you have a respirator mask, the better so that it will prevent you from inhaling the fumes.
  • wear gloves to protect your hands from the inks and alcohol
  • alcohol and the inks are highly flammable so do not work near an open flame especially if you will be spraying alcohol
  • cover your work area with an absorbent mat ( I got a pack of disposable training pads for this purpose)
  • wipe your canvas/substrate/paper clean with alcohol before starting to remove dust/dirt/ink
  • seal your artwork with Kryon Kamar varnish then UV (make sure your painting is thoroughly dry before applying the varnish) 2-3 coats but dry between coats. Nozzle should be around 12-14 inches away from the substrate. Allow it to dry. This will prevent the painted flowers from scratches.

For this technique to work, you will need a floral image that does not have too many details. The POPPY GARDEN STAMP AND DIE SET was perfect for this technique. First, I heat embossed the images on Yupo paper. Do take note that since Yupo paper is made of polypropylene, a thermoplastic resin, it will warp if it is heated for too long. I made sure to keep my heat tool moving to minimize the warpage. The darkest color was added to the centers of the flowers. This was allowed to dry. Then with a brush loaded with alcohol mixed with blue/purple alcohol inks, I colored the rest of the petals slightly touching the dark ink to achieve some blending. Take note that the alcohol ink behaves differently from watercolor cause alcohol will tend to push the pigments away. The alcohol ink/alcohol ratio is also very important. The great thing about this is if you are not happy with the outcome, you can “erase” the area with alcohol. Just note that Yupo paper tends to stain, unlike Nara paper. Patience is needed when working with alcohol inks. I love the texture it gives and how unpredictable the outcome is.

I then used a thin brush to add just plain alcohol for added texture. A fine spray bottle filled with alcohol was used to add tiny specks of alcohol on the entire surface. Make sure it’s far enough from the painted flowers otherwise you will have big blobs of white all over your project. The Circle Quilt die was used to cut 2 sheets of paper and the second was turned upside down before adhering to the 1st die-cut to create a unique geometric pattern for the background. The floral images were die cut using the coordinating dies and adhered to the card front with foam squares for dimension.

MATERIALS: POPPY GARDEN STAMP AND DIE SET, HELLO HYDRANGEA STAMP, STACKED DIAMONDS COVER DIE, ALCOHOL INKS, 99% ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL, ROSE GOLD EMBOSSING POWDER, FOAM SQUARES

For the second card using the same colored Poppy images, I wanted to create a different kind of background using the Stacked Diamonds cover die. I die cut 5 sheets of Neenah solar white CS and stacked them on top of each other. The middle portion of the die cut was cut off leaving a space for the sentiment.

At first, I adhered the sentiment stamped onto blue CS to a card front then glued the Stacked diamonds die-cuts beside it. I wasn’t too happy with the outcome so I decided to die cut a peach-colored cardstock then did the inlay technique and added the positive pieces one by one. This made the Stacked diamonds die cut stand out more. The flowers were arranged in one corner and foam squares were used to add dimension.

I’ve attached a video tutorial below. You can also watch it on Youtube through this link.

Altenew Twinkle & Shine Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello friends! Welcome to Altenew’s Twinkle and Shine Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway!!! Thank you so much to my dear and talented friend, Virginia Lu for sending all of you over to my blog! Make sure to drop by the Altenew Card blog for complete details about this hop. There are tons of amazing products in the release! Click this link to bring you to the Altenew shop.

I’m sure you’ll find something from this fabulous release that will inspire you to create. Below are some of the ways the products have inspired me.


HAPPY BIRTHDAY


MATERIALS: PEN SKETCHED SILHOUETTE STAMP, ESSENTIAL SENTIMENT STRIPS DIE, ROSE GOLD EMBOSSING POWDER, PIGMA MICRON 0.3 PIGMENT INK PEN, DYE INKS TIDE BLUE AND STARLIGHT, WATERCOLOR PAPER

For this card, I stamped the floral images using Tide blue onto watercolor paper. I made sure to use a Misti so that I can go back and re-stamp the areas that need more ink. Then I inked up the edges of the petals with a darker blue and stamped it again. I took out the Pen Sketched Flower stamp set to more or less get an idea of how the petals were drawn and then used a sign pen to draw the petals loosely.

An orange cardstock was torn and embossed with rose gold embossing powder. I also added a gold strip to finish the edge of the stamped layer. I die cut 4 pieces of the Happy Birthday sentiment and adhered it on top of each other. White cardstock was swiped with the Tide Blue dye ink and used for the backing of the sentiment strip.


BE YOUR OWN KIND OF BEAUTIFUL


MATERIALS: EUCALYPTUS JAR STAMP, CARTOON ROSE STAMP, PEN SKETCHED SILHOUETTE FLOWERS STAMP, THIN FRAMES 3D DIE, PURE WHITE EMBOSSING POWDER, WATERCOLOR BRUSH MARKERS, WATERCOLOR PAPER, WOODGRAIN BARK CARDSTOCK, DISTRESS OXIDE INKS-BROKEN CHINA, TUMBLED GLASS AND PEACOCK FEATHERS

I love mixing up stamp sets. For this 3D card, I got images from the Eucalyptus Jar Stamp set, Cartoon Rose Stamp and the Pen Sketched Flowers stamp set. Only the foliage part of the Eucalyptus stamp was used to add fullness to the arrangement. The images were stamped on watercolor paper using Versmark Ink then embossed with Pure White Embossing Powder. Watercolor brush markers were used to color the images.

The background was colored using a distress tool and distress inks to create an ombre effect. Spatters of water was added for texture. The images were die cut and arranged in one corner while the sentiment was stamped on white cardstock and adhered with foam squares on the opposite side. The thin frame 3D die was pretty easy to assemble and I used the Altenew Woodgrain Bark cardstock to mimic a wooden frame.


HANG IN THERE


MATERIALS: CARTOON ROSE STAMP, ESSENTIAL SENTIMENT STRIPS DIE, SUMMER GARDEN PAPER PACK, ROSE GOLD EMBOSSING POWDER, MFT STITCHED RECTANGLE STAX DIE, VERSAMARK INK, FOAM SHEETS, WATERCOLOR BRUSH MARKERS- SWEET LEAF, ESPRESSO, LIMEADE, SEA BREEZE, WATERCOLOR PAPER

Here’s a simple and quick card to make. Instead of layering the stamp set, I stamped the outline image onto patterned paper using Versamark Ink. I just made sure to choose the area of the paper where there were interesting watercolored patterns. For the leaves, I stamped the images onto watercolor paper then embossed using Rose Gold embossing powder. They were then colored using the watecolor brush markers. I die cut white cardstock using the MFT stitched rectangle stax die.

This was glued to a hot pink A2 top folding cardstock. The floral and leaf elements were arranged and glued. Then I placed the rectangular die on top making sure it fits right on top of the rectangular die cut and ran it through the die cutting machine again. This part was backed with a foam sheet to add dimension to the card front. The sentiment strip was die cut 4 times and adhered on top of each other. I just painted a strip of watercolor paper to match the leaves then used it for the backing of the sentiment.


GRATEFUL FOR YOU, MY FRIEND


MATERIALS: STRIPED CIRCLE STAMP, EUCALYPTUS JAR STAMP, PEN SKETCHED SILHOUETTE STAMP, EMBOSSING POWDERS-CARIBBEAN SKY, ROSE GOLD AND PURE WHITE, FOAM SQUARES

Here’s a simple card to make. Purple cardstock was stamped using the Striped circle stamp set and Versamark Ink. This was then embossed using the Caribbean Sky embossing powder. The floral images from the Pen Sketched Silhouette stamp were stamped on Neenah Solar White cardstock then embossed using Rose Gold Embossing powder.

The sentiment was stamped on navy blue cardstock and embossed using Pure White Embossing powder. The elements were then arranged on the card front using foam squares for added dimension.


SENTIMENTS FROM BETTER TOGETHER 2


MATERIALS: BEAUTIFUL BERGENIA EMBOSSING FOLDER, BETTER TOGETHER 2 STAMP, DYE INKS, DYE INKS-WISTERIA, MOUNTAIN MIST, MINTY MINT, OBSIDIAN PIGMENT INK. MFT A2 RECTANGLE STAX DIE

I learned this technique from my all-time favorite papercraft guru, Jennifer Mcguire in 2014 and then again recently but didn’t really give it a try. Here’s a link to one of her videos doing this technique. When my Altenew orders arrive which included this beautiful Bergenia 3D embossing folder, I had to try our her technique and I was not disappointed! I wanted these set of cards to be sweet so I made sure to use only pastel colors. It’s a pretty easy technique that gives wonderful results. You just have to add ink to the flat surfaces on one side of the embossing folder (the parts that are the background… not the embossed parts) and run this through the die cutting machine. Another tip I learned from Tim Holtz was to spray the paper on both sides with water before embossing to prevent the paper from tearing.

Take note that for all the cards, I had to die cut the window first before embossing. There are so many uplifting sentiments on the Better Together 2 stamp set that I had to create more backgrounds for them.

For this card, I die cut the circle first, inked up the embossing folder then embossed the paper. I stamped the sentiment on vellum using Rose gold embossing powder. The embossed flowers and leaves are just so beautiful!!! Make sure to use a thicker cardstock to prevent the paper from tearing up.

For this card, I did the same procedure then used an embossed image from the Pen Sketched Flowers stamp for added layering.


CHOOSE KINDNESS


MATERIALS: EUCALYPTUS JAR STAMP AND DIE, CIRCLE QUILT COVER DIE, WATERCOLOR PAPER, ROSE GOLD EMBOSSING POWDER, WATERCOLOR BRUSH MAKERS LAGOON, PERSIAN BLUE, ESPRESSO, SWEET LEAF, LIME

Unexpected kindness is the most powerful, least costly, and most underrated agent of human change.”

I’d like to share with you a personal story that has inspired me so much. Here in my country, because we are in general community quarantine, I heavily rely on courier services to pick up food, groceries etc. or to deliver or pick up packages for me. One day, I asked the rider to pick up something I ordered from a place an hour away from me. It took him 30 minutes to find it then waited another 30 minutes because my order was misplaced and couldn’t be found. Traffic was bad so by the time he reached my house, it was over 3 hours and way past lunchtime. I was so grateful that he just didn’t give up and cancel the pick-up. He made an effort to look for the place, wait for my order and brave the traffic. So in gratitude, I ordered a lunch meal good for 4 people so that he has something to eat and bring home to his family. The rider thanked me profusely for this little act of kindness but what blew me away was when I read a text he sent me a couple of hours later saying that on his way home, he saw a homeless family and shared what he had with them. He didn’t have much, yet he found it in his heart to share what he had to those in need. What a compassionate and selfless person! Now, more than ever, do we need to show kindness to others. Hopefully, this card will be a reminder for us to always be kind especially to those who need it most.

I used the beautiful Eucalyptus Jar stamp set and did no-line watercoloring. I lightly stamped the image using Antique Linen distress ink then painted the image using the watercolor brush markers. I used the Circle quilt cover die for added texture to the background. The sentiment was embossed on vellum then the strip was wrapped around the jar.
