Happy Tuesday, all! I hope all of you are staying safe and healthy. With everything uncertain, it is easy to feel anxious and concerned. One of the great methods of finding some inner peace is to bury yourself in a creative environment and get crafty! I hope today’s project and tutorial will give you some inspiration.

Altenew released brand new stamps, dies, papers, 6 mini cubes, and mask stencils today. I chose one of my favorite stamps from today’s collection to create a card that features a watercolored look with just simple stamping!

I have all the steps you need to know to create this card in the video tutorial below. So I will be brief on the blog post and share closed up photos. Enjoy the video tutorial!

 

Below are some project photos to get you close to the finished card:

    • I have been through nearly the whole hop today and I am just amazed how everyone with the same release came up with such unique and beautiful creations! The delicate beauty of your card makes me take a second look at the stamp set you used. Very pretty and oh so full of Spring Time <3 Thanks for the inspiration as well as just enjoying your blog ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. The wildflower doodles are great! I love how they can fill up just part of a card or make a background like you did.

  9. I love this card. The watercolor look is a beautiful technique. My favorite from the release is the Fabulous Florets stamp set.

  10. I like this card with the random look to it as it’s not too busy even though you’ve got many small images. I think it helps using the lovely soft colours of inks. Thanks for the video as well.

  11. Such a big impact card using a smaller floral stamp set. I love what you did using this Wild Flower stamp set. Simply stunning. Definitely reminds me that spring is in the air.

  15. Nicole I really enjoyed your video. The stamp set is so beautiful and versatile. I like your second generation stamping and you showing how you splattered your card. Everyone’s technique is a bit different so it was fun seeing how you made such a pretty card!

  16. I have really been loving the fabulous florets stamp set but now seeing your pretty card I really like the wildflower doodles!

  17. This stamp set is perfect for background stamping. It is so versatile, so many petite stamping images.
