Altenew Dahlia Blossoms stamp set

Afternoon crafter's

Finally had a chance to try my new stamp set out. This is the gorgeous layered Dahlia Blossoms by Altenew



I first stamped the biggest Dahlia outline stamp in black versafine ink, in the top right of the card

Next I stamped the solid portion stamp in the lightest shade of the distress inks I had chosen

Finally I stamped the detailed stamp in the darkest shade

Having masked this flower first, I repeated the process stamping several of the blossoms.

I masked all the flowers to stamp the leaves, using the same process as for the blossoms

I used the same process to stamp a smaller section of blossoms in the lower left corner

To complete the card I stamped the sentiment in black versafine ink

I hope you liked the card and thankyou for looking

Altenew Vintage flowers and halftone circles

Morning crafters

Would love to share a card I made using the beautiful Vintage Flowers layered stamps from Altenew.  Along with their halftone circles.

I used low tack tape to secure it in place then stamped the vintage flowers in versafine black onyx ink, ensuring that some of the stamp was on the edges of the die cut oval

I inked up the small Half tone circle with distress inks and used this to "colour" in the flowers and leaves

I stamped a sentiment onto the oval die cut and adhered it with foam pad to complete

Honey Doo Crafts Aray of Flowers stamp set

Morning crafters

Happy Easter Monday xx

Hope you've got a chocolaty crafty day ahead lol

I'd like to share a notelet box I created using the gorgeous 
Aray of Flowers stamp set available from



To make the box I created a card blank slightly bigger than my 5x5 card blank notelets.  Ensuring there was an extra 1cm in length to create a 1cm wide spine. Using a strip of card I made a simple folded box to slip the notelets in and attached this to the bottom of the card. Templates can be found on Pinterest and You Tube.

I took another strip of white card to create a belly band to hold the box closed

I measured a square of card, smaller than the front of the box, and another piece smaller than the front of the belly band, and stamped the Aray of Flower stamps randomly.  These were coloured in with Kuretake clean colour pens.  

I matted both pieces of card onto black card and adhered to the front of the box and on the belly band 





I took the 5x5 card blanks and stamped them all with the Aray of flowers before colouring them in with the kuretake pens. 

I hope you liked my make and thankyou for popping by

Morning crafters
Hope everyone is well. I've got a day to myself so craft room here I come lol

Today I'm sharing a card I made using the stunning Rose Trellis and RoseTrellis Background stamp sets by www.honeydoocrafts.co.uk

The vellum was then attached to the card mat ensuring that any glue was hidden under the sentiment and 4 heart gems, so it didn't show through the vellum
