Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Camellia Outline Stamp Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Well, Hi there crafters!
I was pretty busy making cards throughout December and January and I let you know that I would be sharing a lot in the new year, well, here I am again guest designing for Altenew! Third time this month!!
I feel pretty lucky about that actually as it really is not a hardship designing and using their stamping products. The quality is wonderful and the designs amaze me as I am sure they do you.
I have a couple of cards to share with you as part of the blog hop but first, let me tell you a bit about it..

Below are a couple of card projects that I completed using the Paint-A-Flower : Camellia stamp. I hope my designs will inspire you to get some valuable time with yourself and get creating!

Watercolouring seems really intimidating to me. I see so many amazing projects on social media of artists and I feel as though I am out of my depth with it. Sometimes, when I want to watercolour but feel as though I just can not do it, I bring out my Zig markers. Don't worry, I am going to do 'real' watercolouring when I feel more confident, but I really wanted to make the most of colouring this beautiful Camellia image. 

The second card project, because of course I am unable to stop at just one project, the same beautiful Paint-A-Flower Camellia but this time I coloured it with Copic markers and the die cut it. I wanted to have the opposite of the card above and have dimension this time. I love to have a bit of texture, so you will see I (yet again) used the Grid Cover Die. 

Buuuuuut, I embossed with it instead!!
Are you impressed? because I am!

After fussy cutting out the Camellia image, I then popped it on top of
the embossed background. I made good use of the new really handy Simple Greetings Die set, released earlier this month by adding one in the centre of the card. Add a few embellishments, and voila!
