Hi! Today I will make a flower card using partial inking with some gorgeous stamps and dies. Every stamp and die comes from the new February release by Altenew!

Join us on a fun blog hop, as we showcase everything new with lots of projects and giveaways.

In this release along with their stamps, dies and stencils they have released a cutting mat that you will see me use in this video but also a 24 set of watercolors in a lovely tin!

For my flower card today I used the Watercolor Roses Stamp Set( ALTN | SSS ). I stamped and cut out everything with the matching dies to pop them on my card. You can watch the video tutorial on how easy it is to achieve some shadows on these stamps even without having layering stamps. Partial inking is super easy and perfect for beginners in cardmaking!

The sentiment is a combination of a stamped phrase from the Hello and Hugs Stamp Set( ALTN | SSS ) and a cut out from the Hello and Hugs Die Set( ALTN | SSS ).

For the background I used the new Dotted Diamonds Stamp Set( ALTN | SSS )

  3. Really beautiful card, love those Water color roses and the background! Thanks for another awesome video tutorial.

  4. As always, you elevate whatever materials you are using. The partial stamping is a wonderful technique that will enhance many projects. Thanks again for everything you share with us.

  5. It is almost perfect! Though it’s lovely as-is, I’m a fan of your shading and splattering. That says “Vicky” to me ❤️
