Hello, friends! I’m part of the Altenew October 2018 Stamp & Die Release Blog Hop today! I created several dimensional floral cards and a few watercolor bookmarks with Altenew’s watercolor pan set. You can find details for products and giveaways below.

I have three bookmarks + four cards for you. For the bookmarks, I cut down watercolor sheets down to 2″ x 6″ to fit into the vinyl bookmark holders I have. I stamped images from Playful Blooms and Always There and watercolored them with the Altenew 36 Watercolor Pan Set.

For the first three cards, I focused on Always There. I stamped a bunch of images first and colored them at once before die-cutting them.

For this card, I used a 4.25″ x 7.5″ card size. I stamped Dainty Swiss Dots in Morning Fog for a very subtle background. Then I did some watercolor smooshing with a sheet of acetate film. You simply apply some watercolor + water and just press down over the cardstock. I like doing this to add a touch of extra color to my cards. I arranged all the images over the base with foam tape for some dimension. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiments on kraft cardstock (trying something different from my usual black cardstock). I do love how this turned out!

For this card, I arranged the images over a kraft card base that was splattered with white + gold + black ink splatters.

For this card, I arranged a cluster of images over a grey + black base for a different look.

My last card uses Potted Plants and Fine Frame Cover Die.

I’m so excited about the cover die! I loved the smaller fine frames so this larger one is perfect to use as slim frames or the entire frame! I simply add some tape to the back right after I die-cut so they don’t separate. I mounted two of the frames over my card base. I watercolored one of the images from Potted Plants and added it inside the frame. I had to cut off part of the pot so it could fit in the frame and allow me some space to stamp a sentiment.
