I am finally share a card with a brand NEW product from Altenew's March release. Due to my recent Caribbean cruise, I kind of missed out on creating with this release. If you love to know more ideas on using stamp set like this, you then must not miss out this very post!
This Stunning Sakura has gorgeous outlines and details. I love the ease of using stamp set like this because the options are open-ended.
I am listing a few stamping ideas for a simple outline set like this
1. Stamp and color: this is the most obvious way to use this stamp
2. Stamp the outlines (masking technique can be applied): simply create a border around the cardstock. Then you can add a bold sentiment in the middle. And that's it!
3. Stamp and die cut (without coloring): this is a great way to showcase the flower set without getting complicated. You can simply use ink, patter paper stripes to create an unique background.
4. Stamp and fussy cut: No dies? No problem. With a bit of patience, you can actually fussy cut this image.
5. Stamp, die cut and CUT: once you stamp and diecut/fussy cut the image, you can CUT the image in half and use them at the top and bottoms or corners.
These are the most basic ideas that I can easily think of. There are many more ways of using stamps like this. The Stencil Sets and Dies are great to have, but not absolutely necessary.
During our cruise, we loved to join the Trivia games organized by the cruise. One of the questions in the trivia was: "What does Sakura" mean in Japanese?". If you guessed the answer "Cherry Blossoms", you are absolutely correct. I got this one right! Woohoo!
I did use the Altenew Stampwheel (squeal!!) to stamp the background. Isn't it cool? With the build-in notches, you can easily turn the stamps precisely without moving your paper and stamps.
You can now pre-order HERE. If you love a change with the stamping platform and love to take your stamping to the next level, the Stampwheel is a fabulous option for avid stampers!
