The Castle Garden stamp set is another great larger floral set, perfect to use on scrapbooking projects.


I stamped the images in Obsidian black ink, then die cut and layered around the photo matted on a piece of paper from the 6x6 Alluring Blooms paper pack. I've used a sheet of 12x12 paper from one of Altenew's first scrapbooking collections which is no longer available.






I was inspired by the work of the talented Erum Tasneem in creating this card. I stamped the images off the edges of A2 watercolor paper in Obisdian black and heat set with Crystal Clear Embossing powder.


I then watercolored with the following Watercolor Brush Markers:

Rubellite, Sunkissed, Fresh Lemon, Ruby Red, Citrus Burst, Midnight Violet Sweet Leaf and Dusk.



I spattered the card front with white paint and then adhered the panel to an A2 card base. The sentiment is die cut with the Fancy Celebrate Die and cardstock from the Gilded Glitter Cardstock pack.



A few Satin White Sequins finish this card off.



The Meadow Reflections stamp and die set has some fabulous solid stamps that are perfect for creating a silhouette style of card.

I ink blended an A2 card front with Crisp Dye inks, treated with an anti-static powder tool, then stamped the images in Black Obsidian Pigment ink, coated with Crystal Clear Crisp Embossing powder and heat set.
 

I stamped and heat embossed the butterflies in the same manner on white card stock and then inked with Crisp Dye inks and popped up on the card front with Instant Dimension Foam Tape.



The Small World stamp and die is a little set that can pack a big punch! It's a small layering set with a coordinating and I've stamped the base layer in Desert Night, the 2nd layer with Coral Bliss, Orange Cream, Maple Yellow, Just Green and Caribbean Sky Crisp Dye Ink. The final layer is stamped with Clear Embossing Ink and then heat embossed with Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder.

I've watercolored a "galaxy" background on 9x12 watercolor paper with Midnight Violet and Dusk Watercolor Brush Markers, then inked with Jet Black Crisp Dye Ink and an inking tool once dry.

A spattering of Sterling Silver Metallic Watercolor creates a starry sky.


We've made it to the final project! 



This would be a quick and easy way to create a card gift set! I've treated paper from the Poured Acrylic 6x6 paper pad with an anti-static powder tool, then stamped the bloom from the Midsummer Bouquet stamp set 3 times, with Clear Embossing ink and heat set with Rose Gold Embossing Powder.


I trimmed the panel and adhered it to an A2 card base and matted a sentiment that has been stamped and heat embossed on black card stock and added to the card front with foam adhesive.
