Hello, and welcome to Altenew May 2020 Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing brand new stamps, dies, and stencils. If you arrived here from Altenew Mixed Media blog, then you are on the right track. If this is your first stop, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog.
Take a look at my flower pressed cards:
I used real flowers that I pressed two weeks ago and paired them with Altenew’s brand new Inked Lotus Stamp Set to create these beautiful cards.
Creating these cards was so much fun. I’ve never used real flowers before to make anything, so it was exciting. I used my Pressed Flower kit from The Crafter’s Box. I’ve been a member for the past 4 years, and I absolutely love all of the new things I learn from their workshops.
Here’s how I created these cards:
First, I bought some flowers I wanted to press from a local nursery.
Then, I took my time and add the flowers to the press and pressed them. That was two weeks ago.
Once the two weeks passed, take the press apart and carefully removed the flowers from the press.
I decided which flowers I wanted to add to the front of my cards.
Once that decision is made, add a small amount of Mod Podge with a small paintbrush to the back of flowers and adhered them to the front of the cards.
To finish the cards, use Altenew Permanent Black Ink to stamp the different sentiments on the front of the cards.
Let’s take a look at each card:
I have to admit, creating these cards was so therapeutic. The flowers are so delicate you have to take your time and focus on what you’re doing.
What do you think? Will you make your own pressed flower cards? Please let me know.
