A Gorgeous Card Set Featuring Bergenia Builder Stamps | Creative Coloring with Erum (Video)

by Erum Tasneem

Hi, everyone! Erum here, and I have three cards to share today featuring the newest Bergenia Builder Stamp Set.

Altenew Bergenia Builder Stamp Set + Garden Trellis Cover Die | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0This stamp set is SO versatile, guys! I had ideas bursting but as always so little time.  I used Watercolor Brush Markers and the Watercolor 36 Pan Set to color the images on my cards.

Let’s start with the first one.

Keep it Simple!

The Bergenia Builder Stamp Set is such a statement-making stamp set that you really don’t have to do much with it. For instance, here I stamped this in Obsidian Pigment Ink on Watercolor Cardstock from the 9×12 pad. Next, I colored the image in Rouge and Citrus Burst Watercolor Brush Markers from the Winter Wonderland Set. For the leaves, I used Limeade and Moss Watercolor Brush Markers from the Spring Garden Set.

Once colored, I fussy cut the image and adhered it onto a panel. To finish, I adhered a few Satin Gold Sequins.

Build a Vine!

For the second card, I used the single flowers to build a small floral vine running along the partial Garden Trellis Cover Die. These were again colored with the same watercolor brush markers but I kept the concentration higher this time.

Before adhering the Garden Trellis Cover Die, I added a light color wash of Forest Glades watercolor from the  Watercolor 36 Pan Set onto the background. It is really subtle. The trellis was closed with Moss Watercolor Brush Marker.

Make it Bigger!

I have a video for the card pictured above, just scroll down a bit. To start, I stamped the image in Obsidian Pigment Ink on Watercolor Cardstock from the 9×12 pad. Next, I used Crimson, Warm Sunshine, Citrus Burst, Forest Glades, and Evergreen Watercolors from the Watercolor 36 Pan Set to color the images.

Next, I applied a light color wash of Forest Glades Watercolor onto the card panel which is a piece from the A2 sized Watercolor Loose Cardstock by Altenew. Once dry, I added splatters of the same.

I colored the Garden Trellis Cover Die with Moss Watercolor Brush Marker and adhered it with Glue Tape to the panel after drying it with my heat gun. Next, I adhered the image with foam tape and snipped off the excess. I adhered the one extra leaf that I cut out to fill up my panel a little. You can stamp and watercolor more flowers. And grow this into a more flowy design, climbing down the trellis on the left.

To finish, I added some black paint splatters and a few Satin Gold Sequins.

I hope you liked the cards. I had so much fun making them! Here is a look at the three cards again.

Loved your Bergenia card. So, pretty and when I grow up I want to be able to water color like you do! If I had cut that trellis die it would have looked terrible but that was a great technique. Maybe I should try it??????
