Sunlit Flower Card Kit-Altenew Feature

Hello friends!

Warning: Super-heavy photo post
It's time for me to share projects with you over Altenew Card Blog.

I am excited to share my take on the "Sunlit Flower Card Making Kit". 

 Whether you are new or advanced in card-making, a card kit is definitely a must for giving your creativity a workout!  This kit includes a beautiful floral stamp set featuring two multi-step flowers, leaves, and a couple of sentiments. If you love butterflies, this kit also comes with a two-step butterfly dies.

Once I received the card kit, I was so inspired by the color combo of the Artist Marker Starter Kit ( Cotton Candy, Mango smoothie and Frayed Leaf) that I created 3 cards in no time.

In my first card, I stamped and masked flowers in the corner as a cluster. This can be done easily with a stamp Positioner such as MISTI. For the masking, I stamped outline flowers on Post-It notes and cut them out. This extra step really make the bouquet of flowers look natural and realistic!


 I then colored the flowers and leaves with the Artist Markers. To add some interests, I used the detailed butterfly die to add some dry-embossing details.

 The sentiment was embossed in Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder on Gold Foil Cardstock. Don't have the right color card stock to layer your images? Do not panic! Here I used Mango Smoothie Crisp Dye Ink to ink up the edges. This really makes the overall design look more polished and cohesive!


The 12 matching A2 size envelopes are also included in this kit, too!
I took a different approach with my 2nd card. I decided to stamp a cluster of flowers and then fussy-cut the entire image out.


 To give this card some extra oomph, I lightly sponged the background with Ocean Wave Crisp Dye Ink and popped the large floral images up. The score lines seem to make the focal point even more eye-catching.


 My 3rd card is all about the butterflies! The layered floral stamp makes stamping the background a delight!

 In the following photo, you can see that I applied the Cotton Candy,
Ocean Wave and Mango Smoothie directly to paper. The butterflies were then die cut from the paper and they matched perfectly with the stamped images.


The butterfly dies were purposely off set a bit to add motion and extra dimension! I think they worked!

Did you know that all Altenew Ink Spray are the best for adding splatter? I took out Jet Black Ink Spray and added the "drama"! I truly hope that my cards give you some inspiration with a the lovely Sunlit Flower Card-making Kit.
