Hi, Debby here today with a clean and graphic card and tag trio using the Capture Moments set. This stamp set was inspired by the Instax mini 8 camera. In turn I was inspired by the Fujifilm advert for the camera using bold circles of colour behind the camera body.
Inspired By Instax Mini 8
I stamped the camera image in black ink on white card three times. After this I created masks slightly bigger than the images by stamping the camera on masking paper and trimming just slightly outside of the outline. Then I placed the masks over the camera images and blended inks through a circle die cut from more masking paper.
I mounted two of the circles on white panels splattered with black. Also I stamped sentiments from the Be Strong set. I white heat embossed a sentiment from the Simple Flowers set on black card. I trimmed these down to skinny strips before layering them over the camera circles.
For the card bases I used black card and foam mounted the finished panels to them. As a finishing touch I added a few enamel dots from the New Day Card Kit to accent. I used the final camera circle as a tag, punching a hole and threading with black twine.
Thanks for joining me today and I’ll see you next time!
Hi, it’s Therese and today I want to share a CAS floral card using the Simple Flowers stamp set.
This card was very easy to create, I simply used the Altenew Crisp Dye Inks to stamp out my flowers and leaves, then fussy cut them out leaving a small white border. I stamped the stems directly onto the card front and then popped up the flowers and leaves with some foam tape. Then I stamped out the sentiment on to some Spicy Yogurt cardstock using the Calligraphy Alpha and the Calligraphy Alpha Uppercase stamp sets and popped it up with a small piece of Dark Chocolate cardstock beneath. As a final touch I added some woodgrain sequins with liquid glue.
I have linked a video below so you can watch the process to see how it all came together.

Thanks so much for your visit today!
Today I want to share with you a 8.5×11″ scrapbook layout made with Altenew Simple Flowers Stamp Set and different Altenew Crisp Inks. I love this new set because it is modern, fun and includes lots of bigger and smaller stamps. What is more perfect for the one who not good with watercoloring. ;-)
First of all I chose the color palette for my project. I decided to use four different inks: Frayed Leaf, Puffy Heart, Blush and Mango Smoothie Crisp Dye Inks. Then I stamped Simple Flowers Stamp Set leaves and roses on a white cardstock and fussy cut them.
I was trying different arrangement, but in the end I like the most the vertical version. I adhered the elements on Classic Crest Solar White Paper and fix them with machine stitching.
The title of the page and the sentiment also come from the Simple Flowers Stamp Set. My favourite is the ‘Beautiful’ stamp, the thin lines and handwritten style is just amazing. The photo is placed diagonally to break the regular arrangement of the background. As you can see I only used one chipboard for embellishing, because I felt this clean and simple layout did not need anything else.
I hope you like my layout and I could inspire you today. Thanks for stopping by!
I can’t speak for the rest of the creative team, but believe me when I say – ‘Sometimes creating layouts is hard work’. You often have to work to tight deadlines, occasionally you’ll get assigned a stamp set that you aren’t sure how to use and lord knows there is never a muse around when you want one.
This is not one of those layouts. I have been absolutely itching to play with the Simple Flowers Stamp Set since it was released. Our fearless and creative leader, May, did an amazing job designing it. I spent a good half hour stamping out flowers and leaves in a multitude of brilliant Altenew colors, to match the photos I had chosen of Chris’s first Fathers Day. I always find this process very therapeutic and calming. Shame, I don’t feel the same toward fussy cutting.
I decided to create a basic grid layout with the photos in two opposite quarters and the flowers in the adjacent quarters. I mixed and matched the bunches until I had a nice balance. Both bunches have small flowers of Warm Sunshine and leaves of Lagoon and Volcano Lake Crisp Ink.
I know it seems like a lot of inks, but they all work so well with Amy Tangerine’s new collection and far more importantly the wrapping paper in my photos. I used a piece of Amy Tangerine’s stripe pattern paper to back my layout and to tie it all together.
The other pattern papers in my layout were off cuts from my scrap pile I keep in a container my desk. If that wasn’t handy enough all the embellishments were already on my desk too. They were left over packets and veneers from the last couple of months kits that needed to used up. The reason I’m telling this is two fold: 1) To prove that the Simple Flower Stamp Set goes with EVERYTHING and 2) I am in fact capable of doing a layout (even a heavily stamped one) in under an hour. That’s right my friends, once in a million years, when all the stars align and the climate control in studio is actually working, I can rock out a layout with time for a cup of tea before Eva wakes up from her nap. The moral of the story is you need this set. I’m pretty sure it comes with your own little invisible muse squished inside the plastic sleeve too.
Until next month my dear friends,
Long time no see everyone! I’m so glad finally I can go back here and share my layout using stamp by Altenew. This time its about boy layout and bold tittle for your white and clean scrapbook layout. I use two stamp sets that you can find it at the store; Simple Flower Stamp and also Super Script Stamp plus Jet Black Ink.
So let’s focus for the black bold big tittle in this layout. So I always start my scrapbook layout with decorate and layer the photo that I use with some embellishments that I like. After I love what I see, I just choosed the words ‘hello and friend’ that can represent my layout and also can be a bold big tittle for it. It’s the easiest way if you run out the alphabets stickers or you wanna makes your layout looks so different. The black ink can make the word scripts that I already choose stand out and the texture of it after you stamp it looks so perfect!
Recently I love create messy line surround my layout. This time I find the perfect line from the Simple Flowers Stamp and paste it randomly in top bottom area plus left and also the right area. I want my layout looks so soft and bold at the same time.
Last but not least I choose ‘this day and live in the moment’ words still from the stamp sets and stamp it around the photos plus in the bottom area. I stamp it not once but more of it so it will give some messy effect.
Hi, it’s Therese and today I decided to create a bright and cheerful window card using the Simple Flowers stamp set.
After masking off the centre circle I stamped the images with Altenew Crisp Dye Inks and to add depth I simply used two different shades of Prismacolor pencils in very similar colours to the stamped flowers. The solid images from the Simple Flowers stamp set make it perfect for this easy shading technique. My sentiment was white heat embossed from the Geometric Flowers stamp set onto the Dark Gray Altenew Cardstock.
I just love the bright funky flowers from this set and have linked the video below so you can watch the process on how it all came together.

Hello, dear friends!
Welcome to November Inspiration Challenge – Summer in the Winter!
I took this photo at my summer house garden where all trees and flowers were grown by myself and my sister for more than 13 years. I love to watch how every planted tree become higher than me (through the years). This flower is so beautifully colored by nature, and it caught my eye with bright ombre petals.
For the card, I wanted to replicate bokeh leaves to be used as a background, along with bright red and yellow flowers as a focal point. I blended colors for the background with Distress inks using blending tool and then made some splatters on it. Then I used white gel pen to draw the frame.
For the flowers and sentiment, I used the brand new Simple Flowers Stamp Set. I’m in love with this big bold flowers and leaves that look so stylish in any project! I definitely put this set to the list of “must haves.” To stamp these flowers I used the Warm Sunshine Crisp Dye Ink along with the Crimson Crisp Dye Ink.

Starting out with my first card using the Simple Flowers set, I masked off three squares on a panel of white card. I then stamped images from the Simple Flowers set on post it notes, trimmed these out and laid these masks within the squares.
With all the masking now in place I blended inks in to the background of each square, from left to right, Evening Gray, Blush and Warm Sunshine. I then removed the masks and stamped the Simple Flowers images in Mountain Mist, Caramel Toffee, Frayed Leaf and Evening Gray.
I stamped the lovely large Beautiful sentiment from the set spanning the bottom of the right two squares. Finally I blended Mountain Mist in to a scrap of card and stamped and white heat embossed the rest of the sentiment before trimming out and adding with foam adhesive.
For my second Coffee Love example, I set out the card in the same way by masking three rectangles. I then stamped images from the Coffee Love set within the rectangles. I used the matching dies to cut masks from post it notes and then blended the backgrounds to the rectangles in Blush, Evening Gray and Warm Sunshine. I stamped a sentiment from Coffee Love spanning across the top of the right two rectangles.
Finally I added some very simple Copic coloring to the images.
I didn’t add any shading as I thought the flat look went well with the retro style.
Here’s the two cards together. I really like the simple retro style with the pop of color.
You can click on any of the photos to see them in a bigger version :D Now here’s the video you can watch below or in HD at YouTube.
Have a great day and I hope you give retro stamping a try!
Hello, everyone! It’s Aga here and today I’d like to share with you a few simple cards I made using a great set called Simple Flowers.
This set includes simplified flowers and leaves in rounded shapes that allow you to create bold patterns. I love the simple, modern and a little whimsical look of it, perfect for lots of occasions! Here’s what I came up with today, to give you a few ideas of using these stamps.
My first card is clean, simple and monochromatic. I used here shades of blue (Ocean Waves, Dusk and Desert Night from the Altenew Crisp Dye Inks) to stamp my simple floral arrangement.
You can notice that I used a smaller circle stamp around a bigger one to create my own flower. Lots of possibilities with these images!
For my next card, I used images from the set to create a simple background. I chose to use here the following Altenew Crisp Dye Inks: Sapphire, Puffy Heart, Lavender Fields and Soft Lilac.
I combined it with the “thank you” die from the Majestic Bloom die set but this card can easily be made for any occasion by changing up the sentiment or the colour combo.
I always love the idea of using non-holiday stamps to create holiday cards. For my last project I decided to use this set to create a Christmas card. I also chose to use non-traditional colours and I stamped the images using the following Altenew Crisp Dye Inks: Forest Glades, Evergreen, Puffy Heart and Volcano Lake to create a floral wreath.
To finish my card I used the Bold Alphabet die set to create the NOEL sentiment. I die cut the letters out of white cardstock and used the MISTI stamp positioning tool to repeat my design on the letters.
I hope you’ve enjoyed these examples and I hope I’ve inspired you to ink up this great set!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
