Hello! Today I wanted to share how to maximize the use of your layering stamp set and create an elegant and bold background for a card.Altenew has lots of layering images from their collection and most of them are to be layered 3-4 times. But, when you take out couple images from there, you can create a whole new look.

Watch the video tutorial below to see how I created today’s card!

One of the reasons I love this Beautiful Day stamp set is that you can create a full floral arrangement with just 1 or 2 images. I especially love the white space in the middle of the flower. To me, the white space makes the florals really elegant like they were hand painted. I used two of the dark colors from the red/pink ink pad family from Altenew.

I also did a partial stamping for the leaves, with a darkest green color from their ink pad collection.



For the sentiment, I wanted something bold to go along with the card. So I used WOW! Ultra High Gold Rich embossing powder to create a wonderfully dimensioned greeting piece. Black sequins also add wonderful accent to the card.

Using stamp sets in a different way is another fun way to bring unique designs onto the card, and it is one of my favorite technique to play with.
