United We Flourish Hop With Altenew

Hi there!! And welcome to my stop on the hop. You should have have arrived from the fabulous blog of Svitlana Shayevich. She’s SO incredible, isn’t she? WOW!!

I have to tell you how incredibly excited I am about this hop. So many things I love: Ellen Hutson, the United We Flourish Program, Altenew, and POPPIES!! I have a serious love affair for poppies. I have them all over my house.  It’s true. They bring me such joy and hold a special place in my heart. ♥ I’m thrilled to be able to participate in this hop and I know you all will love designing with this multi-layered stamp set just like *I* did.

For my card I wanted to show off the versatility of both the stamp and die.  So I chose to use Distress Oxide Inks to watercolor the Poppy (first on the panel and then for the die-cut piece). And then I used standard Distress Inks to create the background.  Allow me to show you my card:

I first stamped out the Poppy image onto watercolor paper using 3 colors of Distress Oxide Inks. The reason I stamped this first image was to get the ink laid down and to create the watercolor effect I was going for. Using a paintbrush and water I was able to blur the ink and make the edges look more watercolor-y.

I then die-cut a mask of the flower out of Judikins Eclipse Tape .  By doing this I can now create the background without distorting the flower too much.

Placing the sticky mask on top of the flower I created my background using Distress Inks. This could absolutely be done with the Altenew Dye Inks, as well (I just don’t have any. *sad face*) . The colors I used are shown in the photo. (The Evergreen Bough was used as a transition color between the green and blue.)

Using water, a paintbrush, and the black ink from the Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor set I next flicked black ink on top of the panel. This is a dramatic effect I just LOVE!

Stamping and die-cutting the United We Flourish Stamp & Die Combo, Poppy Fields by Altenew flower a SECOND time I added a few details. Black ink was added around the edges for contrast, hints of shimmer to the petal lines, and Glossy Accents to the center. This piece was added using dimensional foam squares.

A piece of black cardstock was prepped with an Inkadinkado Embossing Magic Powder Bag. The sentiment was stamped using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed with white embossing powder.

 

My Poppy panel was adhered to a piece of the Essentials by Ellen Paper Pack, Modern Graphics by Julie Ebersole and that piece was adhered to my base card. After that? I simply adhered my sentiment with a few foam squares and a few sequins were added.

Here is a close-up:

For my card I’m using the Altenew set Lacy Scrolls and what I did was create a watercolor-type background with them using dye-based inks. I then stamped a separate flower, fussy cut it and popped it up using Thin 3D Foam Squares, Mix – White. To create additional interest for the background I created a bit of “splatter” paint simply by mixing Donna Salazar’s with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Pigment Powder in Pink and Gold with a little bit of water, dipping a thin paintbrush into the mixture, and flicking it onto the background.

I used a die to create the panel (super easy and NO measuring!) and also a die for my word “peace” which I cut FOUR times! I used the 4″ x 6″ Adhesive Sheets on the back of a piece of light gold card stock so after I ran the pieces through my die-cutting machine it was super easy to adhere them all together. No messy strings…just stick them together! Perfect!

I used my always trusty E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser to adhere the patterned paper to the card base. And 3D Foam Squares, White – Regular to adhere the panel to the patterned paper card front.

Simple ribbon, twine, pearls, and enamel dots finish it off for an elegant card to give to anyway in need of a pick-me-up.
