Hello Altenew Friends!

Nathalie here to share 3 beautiful paper crafting Ideas with the new Inked Lotus Stamp set.   This new stamp set is the perfect mix of modern design and classical beauty; which makes it ideal for all your paper crafting projects and beyond.  The outline style stamp set is versatile as it can transform with all types of coloring styles and mediums.


Let me show my creations:

The idea for the card is to create a soft ombre effect in the flowers by using the new Inked Lotus Stamp Set.   The colors in the Shades of Purple Mini Cube Set  and Tropical Forest Mini Cube Set provide the gradient tone change in the stamped images.

A small amount of  Metallic Watercolor (Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan set) enhances the details of the flowers.   The dark card stock background makes the flowers pop therefore, there is need to just add a small sentiment.   A few watercolor splatters and Satin White Sequins complete the card.

Here is another idea using the Inked Lotus Stamp set.   This time, the flower's outline was heat embossed onto patterned paper.   Obsidian Pigment Ink and Crystal Clear Crisp Embossing Powder provide the detailed outline of the flowers, while the Alluring Blooms 6×6 Paper Pack brings the color to each image.   A simple Rounded Rectangle  die cut holds the card sentiment –Happy Birthday Set by the Stamping Village-, and the stacked floral images.

The simple linear background, the Sea Shore Washi tape set provides, make the flowers the star of the card.  All it needs are a few Antique Gold sequins to add texture and shine to the card.

Now, onto one last paper crafting idea:

Adding watercolor to the Inked Lotus Stamp set images bring softness to any project.   In this page, i used Altenew's Artist Watercolor 24-pan set to detailed each bloom.   The Inked Lotus Mask/Stencil set help to create the floral corners in this page.  Join me as i create this page in the following video; you can watch it here or in the Altenew's YouTube channel:

The movement in the watercolored flowers frames the image, journal and sentiments (Pysanka Stamp Set, Whimsical Flower & Quotes Stamp set,  Simply The Best Stamp set).   Just loved how easy this comes together with such fine details.

Your little journal pages were lovely and even though you had to cut some of the flowers because they went onto the other page, it came out looking very pretty. Thanks for sharing your water coloring techniques.

thank you. Unfortunately, due to the shape of the flower arrangement, some of the flowers needed to be trimmed a bit
