Modern cards with a pop of colour | Altenew Exotic Garden Collection Release Video Hop + Giveaway

In design, I can often be drawn to modern contemporary styles and the Sweet Ginkgo stamp & die set are great for creating modern cards with a pop of colour! Today I’ve got a video showing you how easy these two modern cards with a pop of colour are to create. What’s more, this is part of a fun video hop & giveaway to celebrate the Altenew Exotic Garden release. You’ll find lots of inspiration along the hop to create stunning cards with a range of products from the release. 

For details on the hop & giveaway, check out the end of the post or watch the video over on YouTube!

For tips on how to stamp & die-cut lots of the images at once, make sure you check out the video above! For this card, I created a bright foliage cluster with the Sweet Ginkgo stamp & die set. 

modern cards with a pop of colour

To create a modern contemporary feel I used 3 colours that pop with one another. Stamp the outline foliage in Altenew Jet Black Crisp dye ink. Next, position the full layers over the outlines and stamp these in Fresh Lemon, Lagoon and Magenta inks. 

Once these have been die-cut, use foam tape to add these to a card panel, layering for interest and dimension. Finish the card off by stamping a sentiment from the stamp set and add some Ebony Black Nuvo drops scattered around the design.

For this card, we use the same die-cuts but instead create a small cluster and focal point. Add black splatter to a card panel using the Altenew Jet Black Ink spray

After the panel is dry, foam mounts a white die-cut using the Altenew Fine Frame Rectangle die. Next, add 3 foliages of different sizes with different colours inside the frame, allowing this to pop out of the frame. 

Once more, finish this off with a sentiment stamped onto a small strip and a few Ebony Black Nuvo drops to embellish.
