Now onto my cards!
I am really loving Altenew's layering stencils and so enjoyed using this gorgeous Sisters of the Heart Simple Coloring stencil set! I also noticed that each stencil is numbered and coordinates with the included layering guide to help you add each layer! (Click the photo to see it up close.)
This card was very easy to put together! I used inks from the Green Fields and Red Sunset ink cube sets to color the layers. Then I die cut them with the coordinating Sisters of the Heart die set. After I added some black spatters and card stock strips to my card base I adhered the flowers to the card with glue and foam tape. Next I stamped the sentiment from the Birthday Builder stamp set and popped it up on the card.
I stamped the layers of the scene with inks from the Green Meadows and Cool Summer Night ink cubes. Then I used the coordinating Let's Go die set to cut it out. I used some blue card stock from my stash to create coordinating layers for the card elements.
Next I used the gorgeous Cloudy Day 3D Embossing Folder to emboss white card stock. I used a couple of Copic markers to add some color and shading to the sky around the clouds. The dimension of this is amazing!!
Then I chose this awesome sentiment from the Let's Go set (who, besides me, is ready to GO and travel?!)
I love this scene--reminds me of visiting Venice--it's on my bucket list! First I stamped the teal building on the left to have placement for the stencil. I used a blending brush and inked on Arctic Mountain for the night time sky and Ice Water for the light blue shade of the water. These are the Crisp Dye Ink mini cube colors I used: Pink Pearl, Coral Bliss, Icy Water, Arctic Mountain, Lagoon, and Jet Black.
I heat embossed the sentiment with black embossing powder. Then I added my card elements to a background I created with the Angled Mosaic 3D embossing folder. After I embossed the dark blue card stock, I inked some Arctic Mountain and Jet Black ink around the edges.
My final card features the gorgeous Whimsical Bouquet 3D embossing folder!
I decided to go for a letterpress look for my card. I just squeezed several drops of Salvaged Patina Distress Ink re-inker onto my craft mat. Then I rolled a brayer through the ink until it was smooth and added it to the debossed side of the embossing folder. I repeated the steps until I had a good coverage and then ran it through my die cutting machine with white card stock. I love how this turned out, and I even love the look of the imperfections of the ink!
I decided to let the Whimsical Bouquet embossing folder be the star of the card and added a sentiment from the Versatile Vases stamp set. Then I finished it off with some pale blue acrylic hearts for a bit of bling.
I hope you've enjoyed my projects and have found some inspiration for this awesome release!
