Using Altenew peony stamps for emboss resist technique

altenew pink-purple peony bouquet 1

Hey friends, I hope you all are having a fantastic weekend. I sure am. All of us, our stuff and our car has finally moved to TN! Yes, we move every year. Sometimes across the parking lot, sometimes across states. This time it was across states.  More life updates and tea-time chat coming up soon, but today’s post isn’t about that. Today I have one more idea to share with you using, (you guessed it right!) Altenew’s beautiful flower stamps. (Yes, I still can’t get enough of these beauties!) For these cards, I used Strathmore watercolor paper and die cut …

Framed art – home decor using Altenew Peonies

framed art using Altenew stamps

Peonies – specially the stamp sets with peonies – are still on my mind. I have been (over-) using the altenew stamp sets – a beautiful day and peony bouquet a lot. Like seriously, A Lot!! And I have been wanting to use stamps to create something other than cards for quite some time now. So this time I used these two stamp sets to come up with a couple framed art pieces. The flowers in both these stamp sets are good sized for making something like this.

One layer card using Altenew stamps

Hi friends, for someone like me, who likes to play with patterned paper, not having layers on a card is hard. If nothing else, I will at least pop the sentiment up! But with some of the flower-y images lately, I have been intentionally making one layer cards, so that they are easy to ship / send by mail. Today I decided to share my experiments with one layer cards. The Altenew stamps I am using today have layering images – images that are meant to be stamped on top of one another. I explored more of these images and …

Masking technique using Altenew Stamps

Masking technique with Altenew stamp sets

I recently purchased two stamp sets from Altenew and I am so in love with them. These both stamp sets have images of Peonies and these images are so versatile. I will be sharing several different cards made with these stamp sets in the next few days. Most of the techniques we will use them with, can be done with any other floral / layered images. So you can keep practicing along with whatever stamp sets you have available.   Today is the first post using these stamps and it uses the masking technique. But before starting with the technique, …
