Hello Gorgeous

Just a few more shares from the 
August Altenew 2018 Stamp & Die 

Selecting the Hello Gorgeous stamp & die set I started by stamping (on watercolor paper) the flowers using 
Using Altenew re-inkers, I watercolored the flowers.
Stamping the panel with Lavender Fields ink and using the Rustic Linen Stamp,  I then die cut the panel using the Pocket Banner Die.
When stamping the sentiment I wanted it to be silver so I embossed it on the pocket panel.  I found that it disappeared on the background so I outlined it with my Lavender Fields Artist Marker.

For the next card I selected the other floral image from the Hello Gorgeous set. Stamping (on watercolor paper) and embossing the image with Altenew Antique Silver powder, then die cutting the image.  Once again using Altenew re-inkers I colored the image.

My background was created by using Altenew Crisp Die Inks and the Stone Wall Stencil.
Selecting a simple sentiment, the card was finished off with Altenew Silver Glitter tape for an accent.

My final card, I once again used watercolor paper and stamped the floral image and embossed using Altenew Antique Gold powder.  I also stamped the sentiment on Vellum using the same embossing powder. *note* be sure to pre-heat your heat gun prior to embossing and be very careful when embossing on the vellum, as it will warp easily.

I love to use my floral stamps to create a background paper and this card highlights that process.  I usually select Altenew Morning Frost Crisp Ink for this type of background.
After creating the background floral panel, I layered the vellum panel on it and secured it on the backside.  Now I layered this over a gold panel and adhered it the the card front.

I hope these three cards give you a little more inspiration from this latest release.

I have truly loved being a part of this Altenew release.
