Light blue, turquoise and mint are some of my favourite colours, so was very happy to see this combo!!
On Tuesday, while Max was at Futsal (indoor soccer), Phoebe and I popped into a magazine shop I don't go too often. They have a lot of craft magazines but I tend not to look as I can't afford to buy them. Well, when I saw the Australian Simply Cards magazine I nearly fell over......it had Altenew stamps and dies as a free gift!!! I couldn't believe it and had to buy it straight away. When I put a photo of the mag on my Instagram account it was amazing how many people had been trying to find it but it was sold out around the world. It would seem that not many people know of Altenew in my little town, so there were quite a few copies!!
Of course I had to have a play around with them and wanted to use them with this colour combo:
It took a bit of practice to stamp the three layers in the right places but boy oh boy do these flowers come together perfectly!!
After stamping the flowers on some white CS, I used the dies that came with them. However, they left a big white area around the flower which I didn't like, so I fussy cut them all out up to the edge of the petals. I stamped one of the flowers on the card front, adhered one flower over top and the third one up on foam tape.
I stamped the leaves with mint and turquoise stamps. They have three layers to them as well, so for the third layer I stamped it twice to make the colour twice as dark. I fussy cut the leaves out and glued them underneath the flowers. The sentiment was stamped in black and I added sequins from Neat and Tangled.
I want to say a big thankyou to Altenew for providing this freebie, the stamps are gorgeous and I hope it helps more people discover their incredible products!!
