Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Carnations Release Blog Hop + Giveaway




New Paint-A-Flower stamp set is in the shop at Altenew.....WELCOME the PAF: Carnations Outline Stamp Set! A very simple outline of three carnations blooms. I love the whimsical movement of the stems: as if they are dancing in the wind.


Take a look at my two cards featuring the new Paint-A-Flower: Carnations Outline Stamp Set

For this one:
  • I stamped the Carnations with Antique Gold Pigment Ink onto white cardstock
  • Colored with Artist Markers
  • Then softly inked a halo of Sunkist Crisp ink around them making sure to leave a highlight of white in the center of the arrangement. 
  • Next I cut the Circled Greetings: Love Die from a white cardfront dry embossed with the Feeling Dotty Stencil
  • With a tiny bit of fussy cutting on two of the blooms I was able to have the Carnations spilling out over the top of the LOVE CIRCLE.
  • For the final touch, I stamped the sentiment 'YAY' from the stamp set and fussy cut it to say 'Ya' 
  • Adehered it to the circle for a bit more whimsy

*******



Carnations make me think of celebrations! SO for this next card I repeat stamped the Paint-A-Flower: Carnations Outline Stamp Set and loosely/messily watercolored them with Watercolor Brush Markers.

Very beautiful elements to both cards. I like that the first comes out the circle. The coloring of the second is very amazing.

MadeByMeghanK said...

Gorgeous yellows! I JUST love the "LOVE" die one!

Unknown said...

The spotlight card is "spot on"... beautiful use of yellows that one seldom sees as a stand alone color.

Maureen Reiss said...

Wow!!!! Stunning cards!!! Love the fussy cutting you did!!!

Bernadette said...

Really eye catching cards showcasing those lovely carnations

I didn't think you could top the first card, but the second card is simply stunning! Beautiful cards!

Joanne Hoffmann said...

LOVE both cards...absolutely pure gorgeous-ness!!

The flowers peeking through the circle made a beautiful card. Then I was faced with your second card which I think is my favorite of the two.

Gorgeous cards. I really love the artsy look of the second card.

Both are sooo pretty! I love the golden color on the

Kelsey Thomas said...

These are so beautiful!

Cheryl O said...

Oh my gosh, as much as I loved the detailed beauty of the first card, the second one took my breath away! It could be a framed painting with its loose look and elegant beauty. Thank you!

DorothyA said...

Such beautiful cards! My first thought when I was about to go to your site was "I hope I'll see yellow!" Both are just stunning.

Karen W. said...

Both cards are simply gorgeous! I definitely feel like the second card could be a painting on a wall and I have just the yellow room to put it in!! ;)

Angela C. said...

Both your cards are lovely.

I love how the carnations seem to pop out of your circle of love. Really pretty.

Amazing how different these cards are in style. Both are so lovely! I love how the flowers are woven through the love die and the "ya" is the best! Also love the colours and loose style on the second card. Super.

Wow...I have to say I love them both...the first with the cut out so pretty and the 2nd love the loose watercolor and splattered background

Interestingly varied compositions. I find them both charming and I would love to be the recipient of both of these beauties. The first has such a wonderful surprise with both the flowers and the "Love Ya" peeking in and out of the circle. The second is just a WOW! Stupendous job!

Beautiful carnations cards, I love the gold ink outline and fussy cutting around the Love Circle. The second card with its messy water coloring is my favorite, I love all the splatter and colors.

They are both beautiful designs. I like the fussy cut around Carnation edge beyond the circle. The coloring on second card is beautiful too. I can't pick a favorite, love both.

Hi there -
I love both your cards. The colors are so delicate and pretty. I love the spatters and the composition of the second card, while the circle frame of the first one also makes that unique and one creates a strong visual impact as well. Both terrific! Thanks for sharing!!
