- Building Layers
- Have Fun With Your Elements
- Diversify Your Embellishments
The main inspiration for the layout above was a floral cut file, that I just backed with beautiful papers from the Reflection Collection. I love the watercolor effect!
For my new page, I decided to use the Build-A-Flower: Coral Charm stamp set and coordinating dies to create my own embellishments. The main clusters include layers of colorful flowers and leaves, some of which were adhered down with foam dots to achieve dimension and a more natural look. I heat-embossed all the images with Altenew Crystal Clear embossing powder for a shiny effect. The leaves were stamped with a variety of Crisp Inks. I used the following colors: Evening Gray, Lava Rock, Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, and Evergreen.
I also stamped the delicate tiny flowers that come in the same stamp set behind the clusters. I wanted it to be a subtle but still noticeable addition, so I used the Altenew Crisp Ink in Evening Gray, which was perfect for it. As you can see in the pictures, I also layered the flowers with some vellum. The more layers the better!

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Altenew Stamp/Die/Storage Pouch Release Blog Hop Day 2+ Giveaway!
You should have arrived from Dana‘s blog. I’ll add the list below for your convenience.
Here is what is up for grabs:
I’m so excited about this release! So many amazing products! For my layout today I used the 3D Star Die. What I love the most about this die is the dimension it adds to your projects, and so easy to put together.
I started by die cutting several stars out of patterned paper from the Reflection Collection and placing them on a diagonal onto my page. Before doing that, to give more interest to the background, I added some bubbles with the Tiny Bubbles stencil and a mini ink blending tool. The Crisp Dye Ink in Sea Glass matched perfectly the color of the stars.
Next, I layered the photo with some patterned paper and adhered it down with a piece of foam sheet to add dimension. The cluster on the left hand side includes some chipboard stickers, a wood button from the Reflection Collection, and acetate pieces. I created a banner with the More Than Words stamp set, which is also part of this release, to add my sentiment below the picture.
To finish everything off, I scattered lots of tiny stars and enamel dots around the star die cuts and added the title.
Have a lovely day!
