Let's Look at my Designs

This full slimline card was the perfect size for my first idea for the Giant Bellflower Stamp & Die Set.

I used the foliage part of the stamp set to give the illusion of the flower climbing up a wall. I used the colour combo of cool greys and Altenew's Sea Shore Dye Ink Collection, primarily Mountain Mint, Volcano Lake & Lagoon. To finish, I added a simple sentiment and some bling, which tied all the colours together.

My second card is the classic A2. Quite a different take with this design compared to my first card.

To begin with, I heat embossed the Giant Bellflower in gold. I slowly added pink layers from Altenew's Cherry Blossom Dye Ink Collection, primarily Pink Diamond, Pinkalicious & Rubelite. I placed the completed flower on a pink backdrop from Altenew's Blends Paper pack. To finish, I die cut the Fancy Hello is gold. Obviously, I added to gold bling to bring it altogether.
