Hello crafty friends, TGIF!

Today I want to share with you a beautiful floral card using the Altenew CAF Antique Rose Layering die set. Altenew has so many gorgeous layering floral dies and this set is my most favourite among them.

Altenew Craft-A-Flower Antique Rose Layering die set


Ta-da! Isn’t it so pretty?!! I love it sooooo much. :D

I started by die cutting many pieces of Antique Rose from watercolour paper. I then inked all pieces with some Distress inks and dye inks:
1) RED ROSE
Base layer: SSS Merlot dye ink / 2nd layer: Festive Berries Distress ink
3rd layer: Dried Marigold Distress ink / Last layer (top layer): Tattered Rose Distress ink

2) BEIGE ROSE
Base layer: Festive Berries Distress ink / 2nd layer: Tattered Rose Distress ink
3rd layer: Tea Dye Distress ink / Last layer (top layer): Antique Linen Distress ink

3) LEAVES
Base layer: SSS Green Apple dye ink / 2nd layer: SSS Green Leaf dye ink
3rd layer (darkest colour): SSS Evergreen dye ink

After inking all pieces, assembled them as roses and leaves, then adhered them on dark green card base using foam tape.

Here is a closer look:


I added opaque white ink splatters all around the card.

Floral Friday: Altenew Garden Picks

Hello crafty friends!
Today I have a floral card with Altenew Garden Picks 3D die set. Altenew has many stunning layered floral dies and the Garden Picks is definitely one of beautiful layered die sets!


Altenew Garden Picks 3D Die Set

To make this card, I started by die cutting the roses and leaves from watercolour paper using the Altenew Garden Picks 3D dies. I then assembled pieces together using fine tip glue pen – I made layered roses & leaves. I applied Distress inks to each die cut using mini blending tools & blending brushes:
Roses: Tattered Rose (pale pink) & Festive Berries (red)
Leaves: Bundled Sage (muted green), Crushed Olive (bright green)
and Antique Linen (vintage yellow).

For the background panel, I inked onto watercolour paper panel with Pumice Stone Distress ink first, and then dry embossed the panel with the Altenew Mod Squares 3D Embossing Folder – I love this patterns so much!! I then distressed the edges of the panel using Tim Holtz Paper Distresser.

I mounted all elements on khaki card base using foam tape, and then added waterdrops & white ink splatters all around the card. I’m so satisfied with the vintage look! :D

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend!

Floral Friday: Waffle Flower Poppy Hawthorn

Hello crafty friends!
Wow, it’s already February this year, I hope your January was always happy!

I will start the Floral Friday in February with the Waffle Flower Poppy Hawthorn stamp set – as soon as I saw this flower image, it captivated my heart!

Waffle Flower Poppy Hawthorn stamp set


With this beautiful flower set, I made a watercolour card. I stamped the large flower image onto watercolour paper using VersaFine Vintage Sepia pigment ink first, and then watercoloured the stamped image with Altenew Watercolors:
Purple flowers: Deep Iris / Red flowers: Crimson
Leaves: Bamboo, Forest Glades / Stem: Espresso
Background: Caribbean Sky

Once the watercoloured floral panel was dry, I added water drops and glitters. Adding glitters make the flower image more beautiful!! I’ve learned this technique from Melissa Phillips. Her glittery flowers are really stunning as shown in the picture below:



I stamped the “Thank you” sentiment on the top right corner on the panel using VersaFine Vintage Sepia pigment ink.

This red flower card is that I made in December last year. At that time, I used Copic markers to colour the flower image. :D


Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!
