Initially I wanted to make a one layer card but later on I decided to do something a tad different. I did a lot of masking and stamped my flowers and leaves with Antique Linen distress ink. Since I already decided that I wont go the one layer way, I stamped more leaves separately.
Next, I started colouring light to dark for this particular card. I coloured the images with Prismacolors. It took a lot of time due to the small size of petals but because it was looking so good I continued colouring.
Also, here is the list of colours for the flowers starting from the lightest PC1011, PC916, PC917, PC1003, PC1002, PC1034 and PC945. I can’t list the greens since I used too many shades to make my “flicks”.
Finally I fussy cut my main image, which was a cluster of flowers and leaves along with the leaves that I stamped separately. If you are wondering why I stamped these leaves separately is because I plan to add them on a different level to the main image. As a result, my whole bouquet will give an illusion of way more dimension than there actually is.
Also note that I only stamped two leaves separately and a bunch of three as one piece. This makes just three additional pieces that I added to a bigger cluster and it made all the difference.
I placed my main image on the panel using foam tape and the other three pieces were added by glue.
You can find the enamel dots in the store HERE.
If you haven’t figured out yet where I placed the three extra pieces (leaves) that I coloured, two are on the top right. I added the bunch of three at the bottom left.
This is all for today. I hope you liked my card and the technique to add more dimension just by adding a couple extra pieces. Isn’t the Dahlia Blossoms Stamp Set just beautiful?

Hello crafty friends! Svitlana is here today sharing two cards using stencils and colored embossing paste. I colored the embossing paste with Metallic Sprays. It’s so easy to do and gives great results.
For my first card I used both Kaleidoscope A and B stencils. For the first layer I used Kaleidoscope A Stencil, which I taped down to a white panel. Using a palette knife I scooped some white embossing paste onto a craft sheet, added some Dusk Metallic Spray and mixed them together thoroughly until the paste got colored evenly. And then I spread it out all over the panel through the stencil. I removed the stencil and put the panel aside to let the paste layer dry.
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!

For my card today I used Altenew’s Metallic Shimmer Ink Sprays as watercolours. These sprays work beautifully as watercolours and the shimmer is to die for.
I heat embossed the images from Remember This Stamp Set using Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder on watercolour paper. To achieve a two toned floral look, you need to wet the area and then start dropping in your watercolour.
I started off by dropping Lavender Fields Ink Spray on some petals. While it was still wet I added Ocean Waves Ink Spray to it. I kept going back and forth with the colours until I was happy with the result.
For the green I used Frayed Leaf Ink Spray (the green is not as bright as it looks in the photo).
For my card front I have used Woodgrain White paper to which I added a bit of watercolour (like a colour wash) and black paint splatters.
The die I have used to frame my floral spray around along with the sentiment is from the New Day Card Kit.
I arranged the flowers and leaves on different levels to give a dimensional look. In the end I added a few sequins for some extra bling.

We’re so happy you enjoyed yesterday’s reveal post! All new products are now available for purchase in the Altenew shop. I’m sure you must be excited to see these stencils in action, so let’s get the party started!
When I first got all of the stencil samples for this release, I couldn’t wait to get them inked up – so I immediately created 4.25″x5.5″ card panels. This was a great way for me to test out the stencils, and now I have a bunch of panels I can quickly grab when I need to create a card!

Of course I had to actually turn some into cards, so here are my finished projects for today:
