May 2020 Stamps/Dies/Stencils Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

by Altenew

Welcome to our May 2020 Stamps/Dies/Stencils Release Blog Hop post! If you have hopped over from Laurie Willison‘s blog you are right on track. You can start the hop on the Altenew Card Blog.

This release is certainly full of whimsy! Whimsical flowers have been paired with hand-brushed lettering and inked florals. A versatile background stamp set finishes off our stamp set offerings. 


Check out this quick unboxing video to see the creative possibilities of our NEW products!

For today's hop I created a very simple layout with the Delicate Blooms and Mega Brush Alpha Stamp Set.


How did I create this layout?

  1. I stamped a couple of Delicate Blooms images on my background paper as well as on a separate sheet of smooth cardstock.
  2. The I took the Antique Roses Stamp Set and picked out a full image the would fit the bloom of the Delicate Blooms Set.
  3. I stamped this coloured shape over my blooms.
  4. To add dimension, I cut out the stamped images on the separate sheet.
  5. Once I had all my elements, I worked on arranging each one of them around my photo.
  6. For the title I used the Mega Brush Alpha Set and as journaling I combined some sentiments with handwritten journaling.



If you are afraid to colour the images in, this layering technique is super easy. Have a look through your stamps and I'm sure there is a full floral image that will work with this set.


I used the same technique for the leaves and I love loose and carefree look it gives.
