Altenew 6th Anniversary hop!

I’m so excited to be part of the Altenew Birthday hop for Bumbleberry Papercrafts, and we do love Altenew over at Bumbleberry’s! I have three cards today, using three different stamp sets from Altenew, but keeping it cohesive with the colour scheme and the use of a stencilled background.  

You can start at the beginning of the hop over at Altenew’s Card blog right HERE. For all the details on the prizes, make sure you head over to the Bumbleberry Papercraft blog where you can enter and hop along!

Altenew 6th Anniversary Blog Hop

Card 1: Floral art

For this first card, the Floral art stamp set was used to create the focal floral element. To help align the layers, the outline layer was first stamped in black ink before the first layer f the large flower was stamped in Altenew Teal Cave ink. The inner layer of the floral was stamped in Altenew Galactic Stream ink.

The foliage for this card comes from the Altenew Retro Platnies and the leaves were stamped in Altenew Evening Gray ink. These were then cut out with the coordinating dies, however, the large floral was fussy cut-out to remove the white outline from die-cutting.
To create the background, Altenew embossing paste was applied with a spatula over the Altenew Feeling Dotty stencil onto 110lb Neenah Classic Crest Solar white cardstock. It is best to use a heavier weight cardstock when using embossing paste to reduce the warping. Once the panel was dry, black paint splatter was added to the background for a little more interest, before the floral and leaves were foam mounted onto the card. Lastly, white heat embossed sentiments from the Altenew Thinking of You stamp set were added onto the front to finish this card off.

Card 2: Ruffled flowers

To create the background on this card, Altenew Teal Cave ink was smooshed down onto a glass mat and Altenew Embossing paste was mixed in to colour the paste. Again, this was applied over the Altenew Feeling Dotty stencil and set to one side to dry.

For the floral element to the card, both of the floral clusters from the Ruffled Flowers stamp set were used. Again, for ease of aligning all the layers, the outline layer was first stamped in black ink before stamping the first layer in Teal Cave and then the second layer in Galactic Stream. For the leaf clusters in the stamp set, Evening Grey ink was used for the first layer after the outline layer had been stamped in black. All the images were cut out using coordinating dies.

The card panel once dry was foam mounted onto a Tranquil Teal card base and the floral elements were foam mounted with varying dimensions for added interest. The sentiment, which comes from the Ruffled flowers stamp set, was stamped in black ink in one corner to finish the card off.

Card 3: Handpicked Bouquet

For this last card, the Feeling Dotty stencil was taped down over a piece of Tranquil Teal cardstock and embossing ink was applied over the top, smooshing down into the stencil. Next, this was covered in white embossing powder and heat set.

The large flower from the Handpicked Bouquet stamp set was stamped in the same manner as before, with the outline in black and the lightest layer in Teal Cave and the darkest in Galatic Streem. The leaves were then stamped in Evening Gray. The finished floral was cut-out using the coordinating die.

In order for the floral to stand out from the busy embossed background, 3 white circle frames where cut-out using nesting circle dies. These were then foam mounted onto the front of the card panel, with each circle increasing the depth of the foam pads for added interest. This helps to ground the floral. A white heat embossed sentiment from the Handpicked Bouquet was added to the front to finish the card off.
