Stamp Focus: Baroque Motif

Hello friends!

Warning: Photo-Heavy Post
It's my turn to day to share 3 projects over Altenew Card Blog.
First of all, are you loving the February Stamp/Die/Stencil release?
Be sure to join the inspiring blog hop!

The beautiful Baroque Motif Stamp/Die and Stencil Bundle is our Stamp Focus.


As you can see, Baroque Motifs Stamp is a very ornate and detailed. This stamp set evokes a sense of luxury and richness.
My first card is a classy and elegant take on this style.  
With the largest stamp and die, I embossed it with Antique Gold Crisp Embossing Powder . I then inked up the white space inside the motif with Almond Butter. This was made possible with the negative mask.
It was easy to add dimensions and details thanks to the coordinating die. I purposely offset the stacked dies which greatly enhanced the 3D Effect. Basically, you can easily create your own chipboard for scrap-booking and home decor projects. Altenew-BaroqueMotif_Virginia#2 

The sentiment from Garden Silhouette is perfect for this celebratory card. After splattering the background with Antique Gold Metallic Ink Spray, I added a piece of Vellum and topped it off with gold sequins. Doesn't it look almost "priceless"? The 2nd card is slightly more involved and much more colorful. Altenew-BaroqueMotif_Virginia#7-001

On an angle, I embossed the the largest motif with Caribbean Sky Blue Embossing Powder. The following photos will help you see the steps that I took to create this card. Altenew-BaroqueMotif_Virginia#1 

Starting from top photos to bottom:
  1. use the negative mask and colored the space in Coral Berry, Tide Blue , Maple Yellow and Orange Cream
  2. cover part of the card and add splatter with Antique Silver Metallic Ink Spray
  3. -4. remove the paper and add a few more splatter and let dry

The sentiment (from Dotted Bloom) was embossed and inked with exactly the same colors as the motif. The card was embellished with a few Enamel Dots and sequins. Altenew-BaroqueMotif_Virginia#9 

For my last card, I could not create one without the Watercolor Brush Markers. Altenew-BaroqueMotif_Virginia#5 

The smaller motifs was embossed in Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder. The color contrast of the white motifs and Midnight Violet, Lagoon and Dust is so striking! Altenew-BaroqueMotif_Virginia#6 

I added a piece of vellum (die cut from Geo Frames Die) and adhered the white-embossed sentiment on top. Altenew-BaroqueMotif_Virginia#7 

 The Enamel Dots and silver strings really added a touch of elegance to this design. I hope today's post helps you to get acquainted with this elegant Baroque Motif Stamp/Stencil and Die Bundle. 

They really make any designs shine!
