Build customs blooms with the Simple Nesting Flowers Die Set

by Lilith Eeckels

Hello, Altenew fans. It is Lilith with some new inspiration using the Simple Nesting Flowers Layering Die Set. This set offers endless possibilities to create custom flowers that will work well on cards or scrapbook layouts.

What I love most about this set is that you can create flowers of different sizes and add as many layers as you like.

You can use one layer with a simple centre like an enamel dot for a simple and elegant look or create a more sophisticated bloom by layering different sized die cuts.

For my layout, I paired these pretty blooms with one of the cuts from the Creative Cutouts: Nested Wreath. I also used the medium-sized cutout and coloured it in with artist markers matching the floral embellishments I made.

For the layered flowers, I used Red Cosmos and Sea Shore Gradient Cosmos. The Cutout is white which didn't really work with my design so I coloured it with the Artist Markers from the same colour families as the Gradient Papers. Crafting is so easy when you and match everything easily.

The layout in itself has a very simple design but all those layers and colours make it interesting to look at. I used a 12*12 sheet of patterned paper from the Enjoy the Ride Collection with a soft peachy washed paint effect. The title is composed of chipboard elements from the same collection.

You can see how I created this layout in the video below or watch it in HD on YouTube.

Thank you for popping in and happy scrapping.

he custom cutout leaf wreath was awesome after you did some simple coloring on it. Also, I don’t normally go for die cut flowers but you made them so pretty on your layout. Thanks for sharing your talents.
