Altenew Book Engravements

Hello there, so hope you are well, today I’m sharing this delicate and beautiful card that was inspired by a purchase of this wonderful stamp set by Altenew,

Can you believe these stamps were purchased last year and forgotten I even had them… ahhh but at last I found them and made this card. Please tell me I’m not the only person who as done this with purchasing craft items, please leave comment below, I’d love to know.

Started by making my own A2 US card blank, by using sheet of white card 300gsm, which was cut down using guillotine. Scored to create top folding card blank using score board and bone folder.

Cut a piece of white card, using a die from Waffle Flower A2 rectangle die set and ran through my die cutting machine. Placed the panel into my stamping platform, choose this knockout stamp by Altenew Book Engravements, stamped the outline in versafine onyx black ink pad.

Using the next layer of the layering design I used Memento Lulu Lavender, follow layer stamp Memento Sweet Plum ink pad, for the single layer of the leaves I went for Memento Teal Zeal, for something that bit different. Added strips of double sided foam tape to rear of the panel and adhered to the card blank centrally.

Took piece of black card from my stash, placed into my stamping platform, decided to use this incredibly lovely sentiment that’s from Clearly Besotted Blossoms in Bloom stamp set, stamped onto the black card using watermark ink pad, poured over WOW opaque white embossing powder. Heat set with heat tool. cut the card down into strip using guillotine.

Applied double sided foam tape to the rear of the sentiment strip, adhered to the centre of the card blank. I didn’t had anything else as I thought it really didn’t need it. So glad I managed to get round to using a stamp purchased from last year, true what they say isn’t it, better late than never.

  1. hahaha I don’t really think I ‘forget’ about the stamps (but maybe I forgot lol) but I tend to sit them in a bucket in front of me to try and remember to use them… but sometimes it just doesn’t happen for months either usually due to lack of time… just a few more hours in every day would be lovely.
    I am so glad that you ‘found’ these stamps and made your beautiful card, the colours make me so happy!


    1. Thanks, yes it’s quite easy not get round to using craft things straightway, but I agree that, there should be more hours in day to create, wouldn’t that be good hey. Thanks for your wonderful comments, you have made my day. Hugs xx
