Using Dies On A One Layer Card + Altenew Majestic Blooms

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share another card with you all! I've done loads of Copic coloring lately and today's card is no different, but I wanted to try some new (to me) as well.

If you're interested in any of the products I've used, I have links (some affiliate links) throughout and at the end of the post. Click here to read my full disclosure policy.

I think Altenew has some of the most amazing flowers on the market. Their design and versatility is ah-mazing. The Majestic Blooms Stamp set by Altenew is actually a multi-layer set, but I climb on the struggle bus every time I attempt this kind of stamping, so I decided to stick with what I'm comfy with and simply use the outline of the flower and color it in with Copic's.


Since, I'm going to color this in with Copic's and I don't want them to bleed through the inside of my card I stamped the flower and leaves on a piece of Neenah White Cardstock with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. This technically no longer makes it a one layer card, but this is what we'll call it anyway.

I went with pretty dark and bold colors (see thumbnail links below), because the leaves had quite a bit of black in them already.

After I was done coloring in the images with Copic's, I went over them again reinforcing the highlights and shadows with my Irojiten Color Dictionary Colored Pencils.


Okey dokey. To create the scallop border, I used one of the Lawn Fawn Stitched Scallop Border Dies and made a stencil out of some Grafix Clear Craft Plastic. You could use scrap paper, masking paper, chipboard or whatever floats your boat. I prefer using clear plastic for a couple of reasons. It's perfectly reusable, the thickness of this particular plastic is perfect for tracing along the edges aaannnd it's clear. I can move it around wherever I like and I can see thought to my panel.

Using a Copic Multiliner, I placed by Scallop Stencil on my panel and carefully traced around the edges. I also added some faux stitching for more interest. I then went back with grey Copic's and added some more shadow and color to make it look like a separate piece underneath the flower and leaves.


To finish off my card, I added a few dots with a Sakura Black Glaze Pen and some Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkler Pen to just the highlight of the images.

That's it! Easy peasy.


I also have a card on the Kennedy Grace Creations Blog today folks! It features the new Time To Bloom Stamp Set. Be sure to stop by and check that out!

Thanks so much for stopping to see me here and as always I hope you enjoyed my card today!

Until next time!
