Create with a bold colour! (Altenew Exotic Garden Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway)

As a crafty community, there is a lot of inspiration out there for us to draw on. I love seeing other cardmakers work and this first card was inspired by Jenny from JCCards.com. Jenny has created some beautiful cards with bright pops of colour and I thought that the beautiful new Enchanting Beauty stamp was a perfect opportunity to create with a bold colour. In comparison, my second card is the opposite with a soft serene colour. 

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

Creating with bold a colour: Enchanting Beauty

The large stamp from the Enchanting Beauty stamp set was heat embossed on to Azalea cardstock in gold embossing powder. As well as heating embossing one of the longer leave stems, these were then cut out using the coordinating dies

To create the background, ink blend Pucker -up and Peppermint Scrub ink from one corner onto an Azalea cardstock panel.  Next, overlay the Halftone stencil at a diagonal from the same corner and spray Antique Gold ink spray through this. 

Once the background is dry, foam mount the heat embossed elements onto the panel. Heat emboss a sentiment from the stamp set onto white card. This will pop against the bold colour of pink. Finish with a few gold sequins.

Creating a soft serene card: Sweet Ginkgo

This card uses a very soft colour palette. First, use the Sweet Ginkgo 2-in-1 colouring stencil to blend Palm Mauve from the Sugarplums ink set onto a white card panel. Blend a variation of the foliage, overlapping. 

Next stamp the matching foliage from the Sweet Ginkgo stamp set over the ink blending in Pale Mauve once more. This will create a soft serene background. On a separate panel, stamp the online images in Grape Agate from the same set, and then stamp the full stamp layer in Amethyst.

Use the coordinating dies to cut the images out and then foam mount these onto the front of the panel.  Heat emboss a sentiment onto a strip of black card and add to the card at the bottom of the foliage. Finish with a scattering of clear drops.
