Highlighting Sentiments + Easy Stamp Layering + Altenew’s September Release

Stamp Layering + Altenew's September Release

Hello everyone! Can you believe we are already almost at mid-September? Today happens to be Altenew’s September collection celebration and I am thrilled to be guesting in their blog hop for this release!

If you are just joining in on this hop, you should have arrived from Mona Tóth’s blog. Details on the hop, plus giveaways are at the bottom of this post.

How I Made It
Stamp Layering + Altenew's September Release

I created a total of three cards using this new release; the first two are slight varations to the same design. I loved the sentiments from the new, Blessings stamp set and wanted those to be flanked by beautiful floral groupings on the top and bottom of the sentiment in the middle. If you watch the video above, you will be able to see how I built this design.

The floral arrangements are stamp layering images from the new Holiday Bow stamp and die set. These simple layering stamps are SO easy to put together, especially since the Altenew stamp sets now come with layering guides included within the packaging. Surprisingly, with the layering being mostly just 2 step-stamping, you still get beautiful detail in the finished piece.

On all of my stamping for the images, I used Altenew Crisp Inks. The ink colors are listed and linked in the supply list below.

The sentiments on each card are embossed with Platinum embossing powder, stamped onto Wendy Vecchi gray card bases. I love this shade of gray; it has a purple-red undertone to it that really is gorgeous!

Onto the cardbase I added silver splatters with Finetec watercolors, and around the arrangement of florals, there are dots of gold Nuvo Drops and pretty red, white and clear sequins!

I enjoyed working with the Holiday Bow stamp and die set so much that I wanted to feature it again on a third card! This time I actually used the bow image -instead of the pointsettia- as part of the main focal point. I also used some of the evergreen and berry images to create a pretty wreath for the bow to attach to!

The wreath is arranged onto a background that I die cut with the new, Cozy Flannel die; I cut this from Cotton Candy cardstock, and layered this die cut onto both white and Honey Gold Mirror cardstocks.

Onto the wreath there are some sentiments that I gold embossed onto slate cardstock; they came from that same Blessings set I used previously. I further embellished the wreath with white and clear sequin, which was the final finishing touch on this dimensional Christmas card!
