Altenew Roses

Early this year I received a gift card from my friend Dana from Got Joy Creations. With it I got a set I had been wanting to get for a while now from Altenew, called Vintage Roses… This is a multi-step stamping set that creates gorgeous flowers.

One of my new year’s resolution was to make more cards in Spanish. Based on that resolution I’ve also decided that I should use my stamps more. There are some stamp sets that I got last year that haven’t seen the light of day yet, and I don’t like that. I will keep trying to find time to create cards with older sets and try to add Spanish sentiments to them too.

This particular card was fun to make but I had to experiment about three times until I got the result I wanted. This set has many, many combination options and the stamped images are just stunning. I paired the floral images with a Spanish sentiment from Stampendous, that I heat embossed on vellum.

I haven’t made a bright floral card in a while, but I love how this one turned out and I think it’s perfect for Spring. I hope you enjoyed today’s post! For more ideas make sure you visit my galleries listed above (on my blog header tabs).

I will be back soon with more to share with you! Have a great day.

And these roses are so beautiful, along with your gold-embossed sentiment! Truly stunning! Good for you that you are trying to use stamps you've not used yet…I need to as well! Hugs, sweet friend…thanks for sharing this beauty!


  2. Take my breath away! So absolutely gorgeous. I have been to your blog before because your cards caught my eye but this one you entered at The House That Stamps Built is just a stunner. Thanks so much for entering and I really wish you the best of luck. Take care. Kathy
