3 ways with Altenew's Leaf Canopy stamp and die set


It's time for a new episode of "3 Ways with", this time its the turn of the Leaf Canopy stamp and die set from Altenew.  As always I have 3 projects to share, todays projects show 3 ways to use the stamp and die set but are also coloured with 3 different mediums.


My first card uses just the Leaf Canpoy Stamp set. I stamped the images onto Solar crest card using an alcohol friendly inkpad. I then used Altenews Artist Markers to colour the leaves. I'm not a great colourist so I just use little flicking motions to add the colour.


I used the the Hello die from the Envelope liner die set to cut the sentiment on this card. I didn't have the right colored card so I used one of the markers to color the card before die cutting it, its a greate way to make sure your projects coordinate well.  I then added a little border with a black fine liner.


In this next card I have used the die set to cut the Leafy sprigs out. I started by stamping the images and then watercoloring them using Altenews 36 pan set. I used the same colours as in the first card but while still wet I added some rock salt onto the card, this pulls in the colour and creates lovely effects.


Once dry I die cut the sprigs and added them to a black card usign foam tape. I cut the hello sentiment from the same water colour card as the sprigs, I did this 3 times and glued them together to create a thick sentiment that gives my card height.


For the final card I used a partial die cutting technique, you can see a step by step on my Instagram highlights (I will do a video in the future)  I used solar crest card and started with the large die, I cut roughly halfway up the card and die, this gives a really cool effect.


I then stamped the image over the die cut shape and used Altenew Ink cubes to add colour. As I wanted each leaf to be one colour I chose to use a finger dauber to add the ink to the stamp so as not to contaminate the colours. I actually stamped each leaf seperatly, it didnt take too long though. Lastly I added a black sentiment and mounted the stamped die cut panel onto a black card.
