Create a soft card with colour and texture -(Altenew 8”x11” Majestic Bouquet Stamp Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

The Sugarplum inks from Altenew are such a lovely soft muted colour palette and this set inspired this card by creating a soft card with colour and texture. 

Altenew has released this beautiful Majestic Bouquet 8×11″ layering floral stamp I choose the largest bloom to take centre stage on my card. Although I’ve created a soft card with colour and texture, I add some black accents to create contrast and pop against this muted colour palette. 

You should have arrived here from the fantastic Mindy Eggen. You can always start at the beginning of the hop over at the Altenew Card Blog here.

Make sure you check out the end of the post for more details on the hop, along with your next stop!

New products will go live in our store on 05/11/2021 at 12:01 am EDT.

Soft card with colour and texture

Soft card with colour and texture: a continuous background

To create this card with a continuous background from the vellum to the card base you will need a MISTI. Position a piece of vellum into your MISTI and position the leave outlines from the stamp set onto the vellum. Stamp these in embossing ink and heat set in Platinum embossing powder

Do not remove the stamps from your MISTI, instead, stamp once more in embossing ink but this time onto a card base in Soft Stone cardstock. Keep repeating this process until you have stamped and heat embossed the vellum and stamped the card base. 

For the floral, stamp the layers using the Sugarplums mini cube ink set and heat emboss the outline layer in Platinum embossing powder. I did not want a white outline for this, so I fussy cut the image out up against the line. Alternatively, you can use the coordinating die

soft card with colour and texture

To create contrast, die-cut the Fine Frames circles die from black card and use some of the fine frames to sit behind the floral. Next, add a heat embossed sentiment onto the card and lastly, embellish with a few Primary Ebony Nuvo drops.
