Hi there!

Erum here today with a new card and a process video featuring the Inked Flora Stamp Set.

Altenew Inked Flora Stamp Set watercoloured with Altenew Watercolours | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0Sometimes, you don’t have a lot of time on your hands to make a fancy looking card. But if there’s a special occasion, like say a wedding or an engagement party, and you want to give something special but don’t have enough time, then today’s tutorial is perfect for you.

Altenew Inked Flora Stamp Set watercoloured with Altenew Watercolours | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0The card that I am sharing today took me less than 30 minutes to make, it would take much lesser for you if you are not filming the process. ;)

To start, I stamped the flowers from the Inked Flora Stamp Set with Clear Embossing Ink and then heat embossed it with Antique Gold Embossing Powder. Next, I started to watercolor these with the Watercolor 36 Pan Set using Cotton Candy and Coral Berry watercolors for the pink flower. For the orange-yellow flower, I used a mix of yellows and oranges from the palette.

You can watch the video to have an idea. After I was done watercoloring, I die cut the images with the coordinating dies. Next, I cut a panel for my card front from Woodgrain Powder Cardstock. I began, arranging my floral elements on this panel and whatever excess was left, I cut it out and reused them to add more foliage to the card front.

Then I heat embossed a sentiment onto a strip of vellum and adhered it onto the card front. I also added a thin strip of Gold Glitter Tape to this strip.

Add a celebratory sentiment and you are good to go.

With so much that is new in paper crafting, I tend to forget old standby techniques like embossing. This is a beautiful reminder of how very elegant it can be.
