"Say It With Love" in Three Effective Ways

Hello friends! It's my turn to share Stamp Focus over Altenew Card Blog.

Have you ever wonder how you can use the long sentiment with your beautiful floral designs? Let's  "Say it with Love" with 3 effective ways!! The 13 wonderful and heartfelt sentiments will help you convey your thoughts and feelings effortlessly.
The techniques used in the 1st card are Emboss Resist, Masking, Inlaid Die-cutting, (Partial) Die-cutting and Ink-blending.
For this bold and bright butterfly card, I started with embossing the sentiment in Razzleberry Crisp Embossing Powder. After placing the Tranquil Wings Stencil over the embossed sentiment, I used the Altenew Ink-blending Tool. For pink shade, I used in Pink diamond, Baby Pink and Fuchsia. For the orange, I used Sunray, Sunkissed and Orange Cream.
 Next I die cut Garden Trellis Cover Die and trimmed off the center. This is such a great way to maximize the use of cover dies. For extra pops of colors, I added a few pieces of colored die cut squares. Lastly, the Satin White Sequins were just the perfect embellishment.


My 2nd card has a cool, rich but yet intense colors. I utilized the smaller roses and leaves from Rolled Roses Die Set. 
 With the Watercolor Brush Markers, I applied few colors onto Soothe and Smooth Watercolor Paper. I left the cut pieces in tact by adding some Washi tape to secure them.

 The sentiment in the center really conveys the thoughtfulness behind this handmade card.With the same colors of the paper, I added some splatter and Satin White sequins

 Lastly, the 3rd card is in more of a loose form. It was so relaxing to create cards like this. I encourage you to take your own creative license and just explore.


For this card, I first planned the placement of the focal point . With MISTI, I stamped the lovely Bergenia Builder Stamp Set in Sea Glass (any light color ink will do). I applied Artist Watercolors 24 Pan Set over the lightly stamped image.
 I stamped the entire image over the water-colored background. With the mini ink cubes, I can selectively stamped each area in various colors.


For the dramatic effect, I cut up the white-embossed sentiment into strips and placed them over the Silver Metallic Thread and Satin White Sequins.

 I truly hope that this post inspires you to use this wonderful sentiment stamp set "Say It With Love". Please leave me your comment and feedback over Altenew Card Blog.

Wonderful cards! I love how you cut apart the one saying and then added it in bits. I am going to have to try it. Such a great look, and adds a lot of interest to one stamped image.
