Altenew 8"x11" Majestic Bouquet Stamp Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($200 in Total Prizes)

 Welcome to the blog hop to celebrate Altenew's stunning Majestic Bouquet Stamp & Die Bundle!

You should have arrived here from the awesome blog of Verity Biddlecombe.  If you need to start over, you can hop over to the Altenew Card Blog!

My jaw literally dropped when I first saw this absolutely gorgeous stamp set!  You can purchase the Majestic Bouquet Stamp Set and Majestic Bouquet Die Set separately, however, I highly recommend the Majestic Bouquet Stamp & Die Bundle!

************************************************

I had lots of fun creating my card for today's hop!  Read on for the details.


First, I stamped the outline layer of one of the gorgeous Majestic Bouquet flowers with clear embossing ink onto 80# Neenah Solar White card stock.  Then I sprinkled on Altenew Rose Gold embossing powder and heat set it.  Then I followed the included layering guide to stamp the layering stamps with Mountain Mist, Lagoon, and Volcano Lake inks from the Sea Shore Crisp Dye ink cube set.  I repeated these steps for the two leaf clusters you see on the right.  I also stamped the solid layer of the little flowers with Mountain Mist ink.  I always use my MISTI for stamping--it was a game changer for me!


I had this idea to extend the stamping over onto strips of gradient cardstock.  I figured if it didn't work out, I could just use it as is with just the white card stock.  I used two colors from the Sea Shore Gradient Cardstock Set and cut the Volcano Lake paper into a ½" strip.  I cut the Mountain Mist paper into a ¾" strip.  Then I added ½" double-sided adhesive to the back to hold the two strips together.  (I left the adhesive's backer sheet on for now.)

Next I lined up the strip on the left of the panel that I had previously stamped and embossed.  I lined up the outline stamp over the first stamping and overlapping onto the colored card stock.  I picked the stamp up with the MISTI door, removed the white card panel, stamped and heat embossed the Rose Gold embossing powder.  I repeated the stamp layers and colors as I described above.  I did double stamp most of the colors to make them stand out more.  When I finished my stamping I adhered the strips to my card front.


To finish up, I selected a sentiment from the Majestic Bouquet stamp set, stamped it in clear ink, and heat embossed Rose Gold embossing powder.  I love how this turned out and hope I've given you some inspiration for your card making!  Thanks so much for hopping by!
