Hello Everyone! Aga here and today I’m sharing a CAS card created using some of the recently released products. I started with the Charmed Stamp Set that contains a beautiful abstract floral cluster outline. I stamped it twice with Permanent Black Crisp Dye Ink and used the Altenew markers to color some of the images in. I wanted to mimic the effect of watercolors so I applied a few layers of color and used short little dabs instead of long brush strokes.
Hello Everyone! It is Aga here and I hope everyone had a great week. It sure flew by for me! Today I would like to share a CAS card using Fantasy Floral Die Set, definitely one of my favourite products from the new release. It’s a beautiful and elegant set, perfect to create very detailed flowers. It can be used with various colours of cardstock but it also coordinates with the Floral Fantasy Stamp Set. Here’s what I came up with using those two sets together:
I started by stamping my sentiments from the Heartfelt Sentiments stamp set. Next I stamped two layers of flower from the Floral Fantasy set on another cardstock. I inked up the bottom layer with two inks: Pink Diamond and Sand Dunes and used Cotton Candy ink for the other layer. The leaves were stamped with Sand Dunes ink. Then I cut everything out with the matching Fantasy Floral Die Set.
To finish my card I added little hearts that were die cut out of gold glitter cardstock with the Envelope Liner Die Set.
Thank you for stopping by today! Have a great weekend!
Hello Everyone! It’s Aga here and today I have a simple card to share with you using Floral Shadow Stamp Set. It’s not a secret that floral stamp sets are my favourite, they are always perfect to create beautiful and elegant arrangements. But this time I wanted to go outside the box and create something to mimic a modern abstract pattern I saw the other day in a magazine. Here’s what I came up.
I started by stamping a few floral images from the Floral Shadow Stamp Set to cerate a background. I chose to use here the following Altenew Crisp Dye Inks: Volcano Lake, Lagoon, Sea Glass, Blush, Cotton Candy and Sand Dunes. Next, I used fine tip of Altenew black marker to create a dotted background in the spaces between the flowers.
To finish my card I used a scrap of black cardstock and die cut the Altenew Bold Alphabet Dies to make “hi” and mounted the negative panel using foam squares.
At first I wanted to trim the bottom edge of the panel to make a perfect rectangle but then I decided to leave it as it is. I think this random shape gives more interest to the card. What do you think?
Thank you for stopping by today. Have a beautiful day!
Hello Everyone! It’s Aga here and today I will be focusing on the beautiful floral set from the new release called Floral Fantasy Stamp Set.
It’s another gorgeous addition to the Altenew collection and I fell in love with this set as soon as I saw it. These images have a painted look, which will bring an artistic quality to any project. It’s also a perfect all-occasion set, as it goes really well with any sentiment stamp sets.
Here’s what I came up with today, to give you a few ideas of using it.
For my first card I used a masking technique to create a floral arrangement in a traditional colour combination of pink and green.
First I stamped the flower and I chose to use here the following Altenew Crisp Dye Inks: Frosty Pink, Cotton Candy, Coral Berry and Ruby Red. Then I stamped the leaves with Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades and Evergreen. Some leaves were inked with two shades of green to add an extra dimension. To finish my card I added a sentiment that comes from the new Heartfelt Sentiments Stamp Set.
For my second card I used only one layer of the flower and stamped with Sea Glass Crisp Dye Ink. Next I used a bit of masking technique and stamped leaves in two shades of green (Frayed Leaves and Forest Glades) to create a floral frame around the edges of my card.
To finish it I stamped a “thank you” sentiment from the Heartfelt Sentiments with black ink.
For my last card I stamped flowers and leaves to create a stamped background. I again used only one layer of the flowers and decided to go for some unusual colour combo.
I hope you’ve enjoyed these examples and you found some inspiration today! I can’t wait to see what you create with the Floral Fantasy Stamp Set!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great rest of the week!
Hello Everyone! It’s Aga here and today I would like to share another one layer card from my stash. I love one layer cards as they don’t take up too many supplies to create plus are easy to mail.
For my today’s card I couldn’t resist playing with the Under the Cherry Blossom Tree Stamp Set which contains some lovely hand-drawn images. Using the Mocha Crisp Dye Ink I stamped two cherry branches at the top of my card. Next, I used the Puffy Heart ink to stamp pink flowers.
To finish my card I used the Altenew Artist Markers Set A to add some extra details. I used shades of pink to add additional flowers and green marker to draw tiny leaves here and there. I also added some black and green dots for more interest. My very last step was to stamp the sentiments in black.
Thank you for stopping by today. Have a great day!
Hello Everyone! Aga here to share a pretty simple one layer thank you card. In this card, I incorporated all my favourite elements: flowers and a painted look. The main element of my card is a floral frame created with a sketched floral image from the Garden Treasure Stamp Set. First I started by making a background and I used a stamp from the Watercolor Frames Stamp Set with Morning Frost ink in the middle of my card. Then I stamped my floral frame with black ink.
Thank you for stopping by today! Have a lovely weekend!

Hello Everyone! It’s Aga here today sharing a simple, floral one layer card using Floral Shadow Stamp Set. My today’s card is inspired by a beautiful Wisteria I saw while out walking over the weekend. Purple rain Wisteria is one of my favourite spring flowering plants, and I love how the sweet scent fills the air this time of year.
I started by stamping a few floral images from the Floral Shadow set with Lavender Fields ink. Then I used Altenew’s Artist Markers to do some additional colouring. I used a light blue marker to soften up the edges of the flowers and green markers to add a colour to the stems.
Next, I used two darker shades of blue to add some small details. When I was happy with the end result, I used a small flower stamp with Desert Night ink and stamped it in the centre of the big flowers. To finish off I added the sentiment at the bottom right. I only wish I could add a smell option to my card! *wink*
Here’s a picture of markers I used:

Hello Everyone! It’s Aga here and I hope you all are having a great weekend so far! Today I’m sharing a quick and simple one-layer card I made using Springtime Azalea Stamp Set from the new release. It’s another great, multi-layer set that will easily allow you to achieve a beautiful look only by layering up the images! But you can also just stamp the outline images and colour with your favourite medium for totally different effect.
Here’s what I came up with today:
I started by stamping the “congrats” sentiment form the Sentiments & Quotes Stamp Set in the centre of my card. Then, I created a floral arrangement using images form the Springtime Azalea set. I chose to use here the following Altenew Crisp Dye Inks: Rose Quartz, Cotton Candy, Coral Berry and Ruby Red for the flowers along with Forest Glades and Evergreen for the leaves. I also used a little flower bud stamp with green ink to mimic a single leaf, to complete the composition.
This kind of design can easily be altered to fit lots of occasions just by changing the sentiment. And I like to have a stash of generic cards on hand that I can use when need to, so I stamped a few similar cards and left the middle space open to add a right sentiment later.
Thank you for stopping by today!
Hello, everyone! It’s Aga here and today I’d like to share with you three cards I made using a beautiful set called Camellia Build-A-Flower. As you may already know, it’s a special product sold as a set that includes 1 6×8 stamp set and 1 coordinating die set. And it’s another gorgeous floral set from Altenew!
Here’s what I came up with today, to give you a few ideas of using it.
For my first card I created green monochromatic background using only one layer of the flower and two layers of the leaf. I used here two shades of green: Evergreen and Forest Glades from the Altenew Crisp Dye Inks.
As a final step, I stamped this beautiful sentiment with black ink on a piece of grey cardstock and adhered to the card.
For my next card, I stamped the blooming camellia in its full glory using all the stamp layers. I chose to use my favourite colour combo and stamped the images using Rose Qaurtz, Puffy Heart and Purple Wine from the Altenew Crisp Dye Inks. I also used two layers to stamp the leaves using Evergreen and Forest Glades inks.
I combined it with the “thank you for your kindness” sentiment, perfect match for a beautiful flower. I stamped it with black ink on a piece of white cardstock, matted with black cardstock and popped up with 3d foam for some dimension.
For my last project I again created a stamped background. I used Limestone Crisp Dye Ink to stamp a subtle backdrop for a bold monogram.
For the main focus of my card I used six leaves, stamped with green shades and cut out with the coordinating die. I arranged them in a shape of wreath and combined with bold letter M (cut out of black cardstock covered with gold glitter tape using Bold Alphabet Die Set).
I hope you’ve enjoyed these examples! I can’t wait to see what you create with this gorgeous camellia flower!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a lovely weekend!
