Build the Layers with Stamps and Dies

Hello friends!

Are you loving yesterday's Stamp sand Dies release from Altenew?

  
I am popping in with another card from this release. All product links are listed at the end of this post.

This stamp image is actually quite large. However, how do you pack all the elements into one? The real estate of an A2 size card is quite precious. The key of creating layered design is all about planning ahead.

Starting from the background, I inked up the Sphere Stencil with a light orange shade. From there, I adhered the stamped die. To highlight that special hydrangea petal, I die cut it (it has a coordinating die) and popped it up. Thus, you have a very layered look without much bulk.

From this card, I am giving you some sneak peeks of more "Hello Hydrangea". I am loving this stamp so much, in fact, I have a few more to come next. Be sure to come back VERY soon!

I wish you all a BEAUTI-FALL day! Thanks for stopping by!

Really like this card! Adding the extra little flower on top is a perfect way to get dimension and will sail through the mail with ease. The Sphere Stencil background in the yellow color is lovely with the pinks and greens!!

Great look at the set. I wondered how it differed from the PAF, so it's nice to have a closer look.
