Build-A-Flower: Morning Glory

Hi! Today I have a lovely mother’s day card. I used the new Morning Glory ( ALTN | SSS ) stamp set by Altenew. It has just been released and it’s another great addition to their Build-A-Flower collection.  This set contains two beautiful multi-layered morning glories along with leaves and vines.

If you follow me for a while you know that I absolutely love flower stamps and especially layering ones. The quick stamping along with the beautiful result is something I can’t resist! Plus these are the first morning glories in my stamp collection. Yeah for new unique flowers!

I stamped my flowers using different shades just to make the composition more pleasing to the eye. For the pink flower I used the Cherry Blossom Oval Set ( ALTN | SSS ) and for the purple flower I used inks from the Shades of Purple Oval Set ( ALTN | SSS ).  All the leaves, vines and stems where stamped using inks from the Tropical Forest Oval Set ( ALTN | SSS ).

You can leave the background white for a clean look. I wanted to go artsy today so I added splashes of black and gold using Altenew sprays.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set and I white embossed it on a black strip of cardstock.

    I still have not invested in a layering stamp set. They look like they take the guess work out of shading, which is so nice. Vicky, your creativity is always fun and inspiring.

    I have not trusted my skill level enough, even with a Misti, to invest in layering stamps. That said, I may have to try this one as Morning Glories are favorites in my flower beds and I always enjoy seeing them every spring. How cool would it be to create cards with these flowers all year? Love your card!

    Very pretty card using this new stamp – I’m so glad they included the curly tendrils (ten-drilz) stamp so the morning glories can happily climb up the trellis.

    Love your card. The Altenew ink sets do make it so much easier in choosing the
    best colors to use. I wish I had more of them. The black stripe also gives it a nice balance with the black spots of ink. Love you video’s.
