Stamp Focus – Extra Special Stamp Set: Video!

by Therese Calvird

Hi, it’s Therese here and it’s time for another Stamp Focus!  I have the most beautiful new floral layering stamp set from Altenew called Extra Special Stamp Set with three projects to share.  So lets get straight to it.

My first project started with an Ink Spray background, then I was able to repeatedly stamp the flower sprig over the whole panel.  I used the Bold Alphabet Die to die cut the word ‘hugs’ from Deep Iris Cardstock and popped this up.  I added some gold foil details and embossed the remainder of the sentiment.

The  Ink Sprays that I used were Lavender Fields, Soft Lilac as well as Frayed Leaf.

For the background on my second card I used the Halftone Stencil with both Limestone and Silver Stone ink blending.  I stamped the flower sprig on top of the background and again on a piece of white cardstock.  I coloured the leaves and flowers with the Artist Markers, then fussy cut them out and popped them up on the flower sprig.

For the sentiment I silver heat embossed this and added a strip of pewter foil along the bottom.

For my final card I stamped the flower layers with Silver Stone and Limestone ink, then I added splatters using the Jet Black and Parrot inks.  I die cut the Thank You die from Jet Black Cardstock and popped this up.

To add some sparkle I used an Onyx Black glitter pen on the die cut word.
