I have been practicing my layered stamping with the Antique Roses stamp set as part of my class at Altenew Academy (All About Layering 1) and I am very happy with my progress so far. I am getting more confident with this stamp set and I am looking to complete the class for my Altenew Educators Programme soon. In the meantime here is another card made with this stamp set. I love the pink and green combination I have used here. The green really makes the pink roses pop on the crisp white background.
To create the base for the flowers I have die cut the quilted background die from Lawn Fawn out of white cardstock to fit on the white base card 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. I die cut two frames using the Handstitched Accents Die from Heartfelt Creations and adhered them together before adding to the card front.
I have stamped the rose images from the Antique Roses set on Neenah Solar white card with Pink Diamond, Coral Berry, Ruby Red and Grapevine inks and the leaf images from the Antique Roses set with Firefly, Grass Fields and Shadow Creek inks. I found this colour combination to work well and was very pretty. I then die cut with the coordinating dies.
Before placing the stamped images on the card I die cut two ornamental frames from the Heartfelt Creations Ornamental Tags die set out of white cardstock and adhered them together. I have then stamped the sentiment from the Antique Roses stamp set with Hero Arts embossing ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I have then die cut the sentiment out using the inner tag die and then adhere the tag to the front of the card with foam tape. I trimmed the leaves and placed them under the tag and then added the rose and some leaves on the top of the tag as shown.
I hope you like this card and I really encourage you to look at the Altenew classes. There is always something new to learn!
