Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Altenew Peony Scrolls

Hi Everybody,

This is an Altenew stamp set that has matching dies and I have had it for quite a long time now.

I have used it in the past but I thought I would dig it out again and create a card using water colours. 

I am really liking the result and I used the Arteza Brush markers to make it. I have added it to an Altenew 3-D embossing folder for even more effect  and used the Label Love as the sentiment

I love Altenew products and the results are always a delight on cards for any occasion. 
This was another using the same set just a different colour way but just as pleasing in my opinion. I added spatters to this background and dotted sequins around both cards. 

On this second card I have also added sketchy lines around the edge for another look to my designs. 

I have quite a few stamps and dies from Altenew as my collection of their products grows, and my most recent addition has been their Craft A Life kits whcih are fantastic value.

They include stamps with dies, a 3-D embossing folder and a layering stencil for you to create some really special cards. 

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx


  1. Two lovely cards, both very pretty.


  2. Beautiful cards. I've just used the technique you showed yesterday and enhanced some embossing. Much easier than colouring the folder itself. I always ended up with smudges that way . Thanks for the help xx

  3. Wow, both of your cards are just gorgeous. Very nice stamps and dies.
