Hello everyone! Today I’m bringing you a monochromatic layout featuring the Amazing You Stamp Set by Altenew.
This is one of my favorite stamp sets; I love the delicate outline of the images and the variety of sizes. My idea was to create a sun with it and decorate the rays with these gorgeous flowers. Not very realistic, I know, but definitely catchy. 😉
Let’s see how it came together!
I started by preparing my background with a cut file that I used as a stencil. I simply adhered the cut file to the white cardstock with removable adhesive and sprayed the whole page with Altenew Shimmer Ink Spray in Warm Sunshine. To obtain an ombre look, I added a couple of spritzes just in the center of the sun with the Caramel Toffee color.
Once the background was dry, I arranged the flowers previously stamped and fussy cut them to accentuate the sun shape. I opted to go with the smaller images, as I wanted to add more of them; plus, they fit the size of the rays perfectly.
After adhering the photo down, I created a frame with some of the roses and continued on gluing the other flowers along the rays as I thought it would look pleasing to the eye. For the center of the flowers, I used pink and yellow enamel dots.
The sentiments came from the Inked Flora Stamp Set and were heat-embossed with Altenew Translucent Pearl Embossing Powder. I cut them in the shape of a banner and punched a hole in one side to thread some twine through them.
That is it for today! I hope this layout will inspire you to create your next project with the Amazing You Stamp Set.
Hello, Altenew fans! Enza here and today I’m sharing a layout created with the gorgeous Build-A Flower: Ranunculus
stamp set. What I love about it is not only the flower itself (which is one of my favorites) but also the big size. Whether you use it for a card or in a cluster on a layout, you are sure to get amazing results.
I started by inking the white cardstock I used as a background with Altenew Ink Sprays in Frosty Pink and Warm Sunshine. I simply spritzed each color onto the paper a couple of times and allowed it to dry. I had already decided on the shades I wanted my ranunculus to be so pink and yellow created just a bed of color that complemented the stamped images.
The outline of flowers and leaves were stamped with Permanent Black Ink
, while for the petals I used the following Crisp Dye Inks
- Yellow flowers: Citrus Burst, Mango Smoothie, Warm Sunshine
- Coral flowers: Peach Perfect, Pink Pearl, Coral Bliss
- Leaves: Rose Quartz, Morning Frost, Moon Rock.
I often use cut files as a bottom layer before arranging my elements on a page. This time, I have a branch that goes from the bottom to the top of the layout and curves a little bit inward, adding movement and more interest. I placed my stamped images around the branch, and adhered them down with foam tape.
For the photo, I created several layers with patterned paper and vellum, and I also added die cuts from the Rose Filament Die Set in between for dimension and texture. The “awesome” title, as well as the chipboard sticker, the tiny tag, and the Day 1, 2, 3 came from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection.
To bring in more contrasting elements, I stamped and heat-embossed the “love this” arrow sentiment from the Point It Out Stamp Set in black. I then cut it out with the coordinating dies.
At this point, I knew I wanted more black around the page, so I decided to stamp a few sentiments on black cardstock with Clear Embossing Ink
, which I then heat-embossed with Pure White Embossing Powder.
Some sentiments come from the Beautiful Quotes Stamp Set
, others from the Rustic Linen
and the Build-A-Flower: Ranunculus
I finished the layout with a couple of shaped paper clips from my stash and black splatters. I hope you enjoyed my process and will feel inspired to use the gorgeous Build-A-Flower: Ranunculus on your next project.
Thank you for stopping by!
