In the video above, you’ll get a chance to see how I created this card using the beautiful Wildflower Garden stamp set.

I did a lot of stamping and layering to create a bit of depth to the frame of florals. And see that textured background? I made that with the gorgeous and also new, Dotted Scales cover plate die. Don’t you love the detail it adds to your paper?

I made another version of this card using the same products and the same ink colors for the most part, but I changed the layout a bit and used a different sentiment.

Altenew is well known for all their stunning stamp sets, particularly their layering sets. This next card I made uses the new Hope layering set along with a few oldie-but-goodie sets of theirs; Floral Shadow and Beautiful Day. I used those sets to make additional layers behind the floral arrangement.

My sentiment was stamped using the Story of Us set and I put a few sparkling Buttercream gems from Pretty Pink Posh here and there too. And of course I added that same Dotted Scallops cover plate die in the background.

What do you think of the Cross Stitch Flower stamp set? It’s really detailed; check out the awesome cross stitch effect you can get from just some simple stamping! I think the butterflies are adorable too!

I layered my floral arrangement on top of the Watercolor Stripes cover plate die (also from Altenew), which is cut from some Distress Woodgrain cardstock. I love the texture! The die cut sentiment is from the Script Words set and I placed a few little jewels from Lucy’s Cards around the arrangement too.

My last card I’m featuring today is a watercolored – if you can believe it! I used the Mega Succulent stamp set and Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to create the base watercoloring; afterwards I added fine details with colored pencils. The most interesting part of this design is that this is actually three layers.

I had stamped the image three times and colored each one in sections; then I fussy cut two of those sections out. After cutting them out, I adhered the two sections onto the last panel with foam tape. I LOVE the dimension! There are some clear confetti sequins adhered to the card and I added Nuvo Drops onto each one; it’s one of my favorite techniques. And that pretty sentiment is also from the Mega Succulent set. The script is so beautiful!

    These cards are all so beautiful Nina. My top favourites in this release are the Wildflower set and the Dotted Scales cover plate so I was excited to see what you would do with them, I was NOT disappointed! I have to say, at first glance, I thought the succulent stamp was a rose so I was also happy to see that you used it as such. Beautifully done on all of your cards.
