I am sharing a layout today, using the new Hibiscus Bouquet stamp set and the Basic Borders stamp set. I have to say, that I am no expert stamper, but I really love the stamp designs and ink pads from Altenew. They make stamping so easy, and I Iove the stamped images on my layout, mixed with products from the Reflection Scrapbook Kit.
I started my layout by stamping several of the flowers and leaves from the Hibiscus Bouquet stamp set, on to White card stock. I used a variety of ink pads from Altenew, including Warm Sunshine, Coral Berry, Frosty Pink, Forest Glades, Olive, Moss and Bamboo. Next, I fussy cut all of my stamped images and started the design of my layout. I used a large cut file in the background of the layout, backed with patterned paper from the Reflection Scrapbook Kit. Then I placed one of the large floral chipboard pieces from the Kit on the bottom left side of the large circle.
I wanted to use the chipboard piece, as the anchor point for adding all of my stamped flowers. I arranged the flowers on each side of the chipboard, adding pop dots to some of them, to create varying dimension in the large cluster. I also used the fun arrow image from the Basic Borders stamp set, around the outer edge of the cut file. I placed the border stamp on my background paper, in a curved shape, and then picked it up with my clear block. I used the Coral Berry ink to repeat the image around the outside of the cut file.
You can find the stamp sets I used, as well as all of the other new designs, by visiting the Altenew Shop.
