Altenew December 2018 Stamp/Die/Paper Pack Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends ! it’s an honor to be a guest designer for Altenew December Release  blog hop 2018

Today I am going to play with two beautiful stamps set

Flower Vine Stamp & Die Bundle

and Ruffled Flowers Stamp & Die Bundle.

You can find the full release here! 

All supplies used are listed down below 

Here is my first card showcasing flower vine stamp set

Here are the steps

1- I stamped the flower vines multiple times on black cardstock using embossing pad and silver embossing powder.

2- I die cut all the flower vines using their coordinating dies.

3- I stacked them above each other on glitter A2 panel to form a big dimension cluster.

4- I added word love from reflection scrapbook kit and then I finally added gemstones in the center of each flower.

Here are some close-up pictures!!

Here is my second card also using flower vine stamp set

Here are the steps

1- I heat embossed the flower vine from watercolor background scraps using gold embossing powder.

2- I die cut a circle to be my panel, then I distressed the edges using deep iris ink and then I stamped my sentiment “Thank you” from label love stamp set.

3- I adhered the flowers across each other and added a gemstone in the center of each flower.

4- Finally I used double-sided tape to adhere my circle panel into glitter A2 card base.

Here are some close pictures!!

Now let’s move to the second stamp, called Ruffled Flower, which is absolutely beautiful.

Here is my first card!!

Here are the steps

1- Since it’s a layering stamp I used blue ink shades for both clusters (ocean blue, sea glass, dusk and desert night).

2- To make it easy, I stamped my images using Misti tool.

3- I die cut my panel from designed paper from Reflection collection scrapbook kit by Altenew.

4- Finally, I adhered my clusters using double-sided foam tape and added a gemstone in the center of each flower.

Here are some close-up pictures!!

My second card using the same stamp Ruffled Flower

Here are the steps

1- Here I changed the colors of the cluster into purples shades.

2- I die cut a frame and adhered it to a designed paper

3- For the center of my panel I added a sticker from reflection scrapbook kit and decorated the frames with wooden stickers.

4- Finally I adhered the flower clusters in the top and bottom corners of my frame.

Here are some close-up pictures
