Garden Bouquet


This is a simple beautiful garden of flowers, from the Begonia Build a Flower stamp and die set.

One stamp and two different colour palettes, how pretty they look together. First I choose the colours I wanted and then started to stamp the layers.The first colours I used was from the Warm Spring colours starting with the outline in black, then Buttercream, Warm Sunshine, Coral Berry, and finally Ruby Red. Notice how each colour gives another layer of depth to the flower and how you can stop at any layer or skip a layer and change the look of the flower. For the second flower I used Cherry Blossom colour set and started the same way going through each colour. By using Altenew layering stamps you get perfect layers each time, I always do a practice sheet as well as the sheet I will put my stamps on for die cutting. I do this for two reasons the first so I am sure I have lined up the stamps correctly and the second so I know my colours are going to work together. This is not a big problem if you are using a colour set but is if you are using independent colours.

The leaves I did with Frayed Leaf and Forest Glade, I felt the darker colours would be too close to the same shades in the flower and would not give the dimension I was looking for.

All that is left is to figure out how to place your flowers and leaves on the topper. I placed them where I wanted them to go put some painters tape on them to hold everything in place then flipped the design over and placed crafters tape on the back of each flower and leaf holding them together. Next remove the painters tape from the front and place the flowers onto the card top. Cut off any over hanging edgers and place onto the card. Finish with a sentiment strip and some bling if you wish. I left mine bling free.
