Hello Hydrangea Garden Card-Altenew Inspiration Challenge!

Hello Crafty Friends!   I hope your week is getting off to a crafty start 🙂

This week, well and weekend has been busy exploring my love of cardmaking and I have a card to share with you I made to join Altenew’s Inspiration Challenge.

You can also join, by the link above or click on image below.

My Card “Hello Hydrangea Garden”:

Using Altenew’s Gorgeous ‘Garden Hydrangea’ Stamp set I first inked up all my flowers using three of four stamp layers.    I stamped the outline layer first, then the solid and then the center to create some shadows.

I used Altenew Crisp Inks in Blush, Velvet and Crimson Moss and Olive for the greens throughout my piece.

Then,  I cut them out with my Brother Scan n cut and set all those aside.

For something unexpected, I stamped the leaf’s  ‘spine’ stamp [from Altenew’s Gorgeous ‘Garden Hydrangea’ Stamp set] on the background of my card.

Then, I assembled my stamped images where I wanted them and adhered to my card front- bumping hill the center darker flower with foam squares.

I added wink of stella to the Middle flower’s centers and to all the leaves. You can see the ‘spines’ peeking from behind the flowers and leaves.  Really made my card pop!

To add a little more detail I made white ‘string-like’ Paper twine with very tiny Shavings of white neenah 80# cardstock. 

I’m so Amazed how easy and fast my card came together using these Gorgeous stamp sets.

Remember  you still have time to enter Altenew’s Inspiration Challenge , too!

See you soon!   Until then- Stay Strong and Craft on ♥

Hugs and Blessings,
