Hello friends! Today I have a really pretty stamp set to share with you! The Stamptember collaboration between Simon Says Stamp and Altenew! Two of my most favorite companies! And the result is just as stunning! The beautiful stamp set called Dainty Sprig!
You know that this set is no longer available but some of you may already have it so I thought to share my card ideas with you!
The flower branch is so pretty that I immediately wanted to color it (although there are solid layering images in the set). For this card I used the Prima Marketing Decadent Pies watercolor palette and went with an autumnal color scheme.
The colors I used are: 32-Apple, 27-Pistachio Cream, 34-Keylime and 35-Blackberry
Then I used the coordinating dies to cut the colored image.
For the background I was inspired by the Altenew Academy class Irresistible Inking Techniques by instructor Sara Naumann to use my dye ink pads for doing some ink blending. Altenew inks are really smooth and perfect to use for backgrounds. I used Volcano Lake and Lagoon inks from the Cerulean Skies Mini Cube Set.
I stamped the sentiment from the set using Altenew Firebrick die ink and added splotches of water, Lagoon ink and some Antiqued Bronze from a Tim Holtz Mica Spray bottle. Then I die cut the panel with a Wonky Stitched Rectangle die and foam mounted the branch on top.
The panel was finally adhered onto a standard A2 card base made out of Neenah Desert Storm card stock.
Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a fabulous day and I’ll see you tomorrow with one more card made with this gorgeous set!
