Bloom with Altenew

The weather here isn't great this morning so a lot of the photos i took had to be deleted which is why i dont have as many to show as usual, plus my connection is slow :[

Anyway, my card to share today is for the big Altenew bloghop which is combined with 18 challenge blogs. I really enjoyed hopping around and getting some ideas, plus finding some new challenges i can join in with.

For this card, { which is A6 in size} i embossed some white card with my favorite floral embossing folder. I used the Dahlia's stamp set for this card and stamped the sentiment onto vellum. I then stamped my flower and leaves and cut them out. To finish, i added some sequins.

I never used to like doing clean and simple cards, im much better at fussy and fancy with quite a few embellishments but with the Altenew stamps it's really easy, plus there are always plenty of ideas to find on Pinterest. I have a board dedicated to Altenew cards that you should visit.

So for this card i used:
  • White card { Both for the base card and the embossed layer as well as to stamp on}
  • Floral embossing folder { I cant remember which brand this one is but it is my favorite, plus it' only A6 in size, perfect for these cards}
  • Altenew Dahlia stamp set. { Large flower image and large leaf}
  • Mix of dew drop and versafine inks. { I know there not Altenew, but i am still fairly new to this way of stamping and these inks work well it's just matching shades that you have to try and work out}
  • Sequins. Sequins have become a new must in my embellishment box as they always look good with these stamps and style of cards.
