How to Use Spheres & Spirals on Floral Cards + Video!

Do you ever look at graphic shapes and wonder what to do with them?  Today I share 2 easy examples of how they can be used on a floral card design.  this is part of my Take 2 With Therese series at Altenew and if you haven’t seen these videos before you can check them out HERE.

My focus is on the Spheres & Spirals set from Altenew and to be honest I had so many ideas how to use these that I felt a bit overwhelmed lol.  When that happens to me I always just go back to the basics and keep it simple.

Starting with my new fave card making colour ‘blue’, out came the Navy Cardstock yet again and I heat embossed the design in Rose Gold which looks so very pretty.

Do you like to stamp out your very own backgounds I find it a great way to use graphic style stamps (and let me ‘keep / hoard’ my design paper wink)? You can see another example of this set on a card I made for the release post HERE.    I’ll be back soon, Hugs, Therese signature 2 Other Supplies:  Artist Markers – 0 / R101 / R302 / R400 / Y612 / Y823 / G702 / G915.

  1. Thank you so much for the video tutorial. I love combining floral and geometric design elements. Off to my craft room, you’ve inspired me! 😃

  2. Amazing cards, Therese! I love the rose gold embossing powder on the navy cardstock! So elegant!

  3. I love both of these cards Therese! Your beautiful colouring and the subtle background of the first, makes such a feminine card, and the second card is just dazzling! Thank you so much for your video!

  4. Gorgeous colour combination today! The flower colouring is lovely. I like this new stamp set. I will have to check it out.

  5. Beautiful cards!! The images from Spheres and Spirals remind me of the Spirograph set I played with as a child. Fabulous!!

    1. That’s exactly what I thought of too, I did like that game but found it very frustrating if I made just a ‘little’ mistake I had to start all over again lol.

  6. Beautiful cards, Therese. I think using the same colour palette makes perfect sense, and gives your all post a coordinated look. 😛

  7. Navy and coral just hit me as a beautiful color combo. Love the addition of the mint. So stunning.

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