Hello, everyone! Sharing with you this super cute mini stamp set from Altenew called the Bouquet Stamp and die set. Below is a card I made using this adorable set.
I paired this up with the other gorgeous Pots and Plants stamp and die and the Woven Basket 3d embossing folder. The plants and basket were colored using watercolored pencils. In order to emphasize the weaving, I colored the recessed parts with a darker shade of alcohol ink marker and used a white pigment ink to brush the embossed surface. I used the Tiny Sentiments: Hello die as well.
I hope you liked this card I made using the Bouquet Basket Stamp and die set. Make sure to check out the Altenew blog for more cards created by the other designers! Thanks for dropping by and happy crafting! <3
Hello, everyone! Welcome to my blog! If you just came from Lilith Eeckels, then you’re on the right track. For the complete information about this release, please visit the Altenew blog. I’m so excited to share with you what I created because there were many beautiful products from the NEW RELEASE to work with!!! I made a number of cards and I hope you will like them.
Assemble the card using foam squares and adhesive.
I love how this card turned out. It is a huge image and I didn’t want to cut it so I just made a 5×7 card. I also added a second image inside the card for an added surprise to the recipient.
TIP: When doing loose water-coloring, intentionally do not color some areas of the petals (leaving them white) to mimic highlights.
Add a plain die cut cardstock to the back of the clear cover panel to hide the glue/foam squares. I added another watercolored image inside the card to make it a little more special when the recipient opens it. <3
GOOD THINGS COME TO THOSE WHO READ and THE WORLD BELONGS TO THOSE WHO READ
Assemble the cards using foam squares and adhesive.
TIP: The easiest way to color a background with lots of shapes is to use a monochromatic color scheme. Color all of the same shape at once them move on to the next shape using a different color.
YAY! AND THANKS
Create a background using the following alcohol inks: Galactic Stream, Teal Cave, Dusk, and Piñata Gold on Nara Paper. Use 90% isopropyl alcohol to dilute the inks. Allow to dry.
Stamp the image from the Geometric Botany background stamp set using Alcohol Lift Ink.
While the ink is still wet, stamp the image on another plain white cardstock to create a second card front.
Die cut the Fancy Yay! 5 times on white cardstock and adhere on top of each other.
Cut the alcohol inked background and adhere to a white card front. Adhere the Yay die cut.
Use the excess alcohol inked background as a border and a die cut sentiment for the 2nd card.
TIP: Dab the excess alcohol lift ink with a paper towel– remember to use a clean part of the towel every time you dab. When it’s dry, buff the surface and the image will magically become crisper. (I got this tip from everyone’s idol– Jennifer Mcguire).
TIP: Do not throw away your scraps! You can always use them as a border or for word dies like the Thanks card I made using scraps.
GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN
Create a watercolored background using Watercolor brush markers. Add water for the pigments to bleed.
Stamp the image from the Tree of Fantasy Stamp using dye inks and sprits water on the stamp before stamping. Add additional defined branches with watercolor.
Add small trees on the hills with diluted watercolor.
I wanted to keep this card simple and the colors subdued since it’s a sympathy card. It’s sad that I need to create more of these cards lately. Hopefully, this card will make my friend feel how much I also hurt for the loss of his Mom.
Stamp the image from the Endless Florescence Stamp Set on top of the stamped background and add botanical lines on the leaves and stems using Tombow drawing pens 0.1, 0.3 and 0.5. Add additional berries and branches in certain spaces then color the background black. Stamp the sentiment on the front cover using the Inside and Out: Thanks Stamp set.
TIP: I recently took a Botanical Line Drawing Workshop with Thea Po and I got so excited thinking of all the stamp sets I can use this technique with!!! The key here is to follow the curvature of the petal, leaf or bud so that it will not look stiff. Add different lengths of lines, too!

Welcome to my blog, everyone! If you just came from Lilith Eeckels blog, then you’re on the right track. For the complete details of this hop, you may head to the Altenew Card Blog. You can find the complete release of the October 2021 Mighty Kind release collection here.
I created a number of cards for this wonderful release. Let me know in the comment section which one you like the best.
Create the background using Fine Tulle Stencil with Tumbled Glass, Frayed Burlap and Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide inks and Rusty Hinge Spray stain. Spray some areas with water for the inks to react.
Die cut from vellum the background die and from light blue cardstock the Be Kind die. I die cut this 4 times and adhered them on top of each other for added thickness.
Assembe the card with adhesive.
Wouldn’t the world be a better place if we all can just be kind to one another??? Kindness is being considerate, generous, empathetic and accepting of the difference of others. I think we should remind ourselves, every day, to be kind.
GRATEFUL FOR SMALL THINGS, BIG THINGS AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN
Create 3 die cuts using the leaf pattern from the Flowing Foliage Die. Stack 3 on top of each other for more dimension.
Die cut 4 times from white carstock the sentiment using theWay To Go die. For the last layer, use the excess alcohol inked background.
Assemble the card with foam squares and adhesive.
I was inspired by Tiffany Solorio’s alcohol ink process using vellum so I tried it out. She used an Alcohol blending solution while I used isopropyl alcohol. I did not have that much warping maybe because I used thicker vellum. Love all the texture on this card.
The process of this card is the same as the previous one. I was able to make 2 cards using 1 background! I will definitely be experimenting more with alcohol inks and vellum. For this card, I used the sentiment from the Essential Sentiments Die set for the sentiment.

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!
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.
Cover Neenah Solar White Cardstock using Sea Shore Washi tapes leaving a thin space for the paper to show.
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.
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
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.
Watercolor the petals and leaves using the following Watercolor brush markers: Purple Wine, Persian Blue, Lagoon and Turquoise. Use the wet on wet technique.
Add a light wash on the outer surface of the flowers and leaves.
Emboss the sentiment with Pure White embossing powder on black cardstock.
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. 🙂

Remove the Post it Tape and assemble the card with foam squares.
Stamp the image in opposite corners using Versamark Ink and emboss with Rose Gold embossing powder.
Watercolor the background using Desert Night Watercolor brush marker and lighten some parts with added water.
Add gold and metallic blue splatters using the Metallic Watercolor pan set.
Die cut the sentiment.
Assemble the card.
I love the dramatic contrast of the image with the background. You don’t always have to color the embossed images. By coloring only the background and keeping the images white, the images stand out more.
