How to Make 2 Bold Floral Cards With Design Paper + Video!

Today I share 2 cards using the Altenew Simply the Best Stamp Set.  This is part of my Take 2 with Therese video series with Altenew and if you haven’t caught any of these videos before I have a link to my playlist with more inspiration HERE.

Today is part of a Stamp Highlight post for Altenew and I had such fun using this LARGE floral image!

I decided to use some of the Essential Rock Collection Paper Pack and realised that I actually didn’t do any colouring today, which is very unusual for me.

This is a clever stamp and die set as it comes in 2 parts and for my first design I simply used the smaller portion of the flower which I white heat embossed on some Velvet cardstock.

The sentiment for this card was from the same, Simply The Best Stamp Set.

I thought my second card could be used as a gift card as I added my design paper flower to a small square card base.

I added a torn Tuxedo Washi Tape background.

as well as a sentiment from the Wavy Roses stamp set and some Rock Collection Enamel Dots.

I hope you are inspired to use some design paper on your floral cards (Oh, and maybe try ‘no colouring’ too)!  Til next time, Hugs, Therese signature 2 Other Supplies:

  1. Both of these cards are stunning using that large flower, love the first design & colours the most out of the two. But would love to be able to make either of them myself x

  2. Just so you know someone hasn’t taken over my computer – yes, this IS me! You’ll understand this because I’m about to tell you that the RED is my favorite!!! shhhhh! don’t tell Mr. Grey, okay? Off to watch these beauties come to life!! xx
    =]

  3. Love them both Therese and it’s good to be able to use up some of the paper from the pads we all seem to hoard. Think the red card is my favourite. I’m always drawn to red even though blue is my favourite colour. Think it might be because I’m an Aries and I believe red is the associated colour.

  4. Gorgeous cards, Therese! This is going to become one of my most fave stamp sets for sure. Love your bold colors, the use of the pp for the first card, and your cool washi tear! Thanks for sharing some great ideas.

  5. Gorgeous cards, Therese! I’m trying to behave myself with this release, but you keep sharing all of your beautiful cards…oh well, it’s only money, right?

Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
