Elegant & Sophisticated Cards feat. Altenew Painted Rose for StampNation 2018 Birthday Card Stash

Hey folks!

In today's video I'm showing how to put together a set of elegant & sophisticated cards. These are for the StampNation Birthday Card Stash - DONE! challenge. I'm using the oh so lovely Altenew Painted Rose Stamp Set and doing some clean & simple stamp layering. I also have a link below where you can find the details about StampNation!

Our topic for our Birthday Card Stash today is Elegant and Sophisticated. Right At Home shared a tutorial over on StampNation today, but I don't have any Right At Home Stamps (I know! I'm sorry!), but I did have this gorgeous Altenew PAINTED ROSE Stamp Set. I think Altenew, elegant and sophisticated are synonymous.


You can watch the video on how I made my cards HERE. You can also click on the thumbnail link below.


These were super easy to make folks! I talk more about this in the VIDEO, but you can easily make a set of these or just one.

I stamped all of the roses on Neenah SOLAR WHITE 80 lb. Cardstock. Since these are layering stamps, I used my MISTI STAMPING TOOL. You could use a stamp block if you'd like. I've been using the Catherine Pooler STAMP BLOCKS a ton lately. They are awesome. The curved edges on them are the best I've seen so far folks!

I used all Altenew Inks, but I made sure to keep them in each of their own collections that they were released in. This way, I knew all of my colors would look great together. I used the RED SUNSET Ink Set, SUMMER AFTERNOON, COOL SUMMER NIGHT and the SHADES OF PURPLE Ink Set. For the leaves, I used the GREEN FIELDS Ink Set.


I show how I do this in the VIDEO, but I love the look of embossing over stamp layering. On the roses I used Hero Arts CLEAR SPARKLE Embossing Powder. and the leaves, I used Altenew CLEAR Embossing Powder.

I wanted to add some die cut frames to all of my panels. You could totally add faux frames and draw them in with a Copic Multiliner, but I wanted the extra dimension on my panel so I used the My Favorite Things INSIDE & OUT STITCHED RECTANGLE Dies and cut some frames.


These cards don't need a lot of embellies so I kept it simple and added some PEARLS from Hero Arts.

That's it!

I hope you enjoyed my card today! As always it’s such a great pleasure to design for Wplus9. Dawn and Crew are the best! DISCOVER more projects on my Youtube Channel.
