Altenew_MySweetPetunia_Collaboration

Hello, and welcome to the Altenew & My Sweet Petunia collaboration blog hop! If you came from the amazing Lydia’s blog, you are right on track! Today the design team girls are sharing some fabulous projects using both Altenew stamps and a MISTI stamping tool, and here is what I came up with:

Handmade Birthday Card using Color Layering Technique_Altenew Stamps_May Park

I created a vintage birthday card inspired by Yana’s gorgeous card. Instead of creating stamped background, I wanted to create some floral arrangement for focal point of my card, though. I used both Vintage Roses and Vintage Flowers stamp sets and my favorite stamping tool, mini MISTI to make the card.

It’s not a difficult card to make at all. However, I spend over two hours to finish this card as I had a hard time finding the perfect placement for my diecut elements.

Don’t you love the realistic look of the flowers and leaves? I really love how my card turned out. I think the time and effort I put into my card totally paid off. What do you think?

I made a video tutorial to show you how to make this card from start to finish. You can watch it here or on my YouTube channel. Hope you find it helpful. (Please excuse my cat meowing in the background.)

    1. I saw this video and loved it so much that I bought two of these stamps – one for my sister and I. Can’t wait to use. Love this card can’t wait to try!

  1. I love this card! The time to arrange your bouquet was definitely worth it. I just purchased the vintage flowers stamp set and you have given me some inspiration.

  2. I love these 2 stamp sets, May, so I think your card is beautiful. The soft, diagonal striped BG is perfect too.

  3. Beautiful card! I hope the recipient really appreciates the card and love you put into making the card!

  7. May, you are just one of my favorite designers! The Misti really helped the project come together. I loved your simple and (as you described) vintage background choice. The subtle contrast of color paired well with your floral focal point. Your flowers and leaves are stunning! I also think your time investment was worth it–your placement was perfect! Thank You for another amazing creation!

  8. I really like the background paper on the card..helps make it pop! I also love all the flower stamp/die sets from Altenew..I have started a collection .

  12. Your card and flower arrangement is beautiful! I love the striped background it gives it a vintage country feel!

  13. Your kitties are so chatty. Sounds like they wanted some attention. I know mine always waits til I’m busy to “talk” to me. Back to your lovely card. The bouquet is simply gorgeous and look lovely against that patterned paper.

  14. May, your card is simply lovely – well worth the time that you spent. I find that figuring out the position of my elements is often the hardest thing for me to do when making a card.

  15. Thank you. Just have to tell you: I’m glad you were in a hurry to finish because the striped background looks lovely with the floral arrangement 🙂

  16. I love the contrast of the striped background and the roses. This stamp set is one of the most perfect, most detailed layering sets there is!

  17. Love this card! I would love a chance to use the Misti and would love to win one! Beautiful card! Thanks for sharing!

  19. Beautiful card! I LOVE that stamp set! I hope Altenew does another set of roses one day they are gorgeous! Thank You for the video and sharing in this wonderful hop!

  20. Your card turned out beautifully and I think your placement was perfect! Thanks for the great video as well.

  21. Who doesn’t love to get roses on their birthday? We all love them and the Altenew Roses have become so classic. Thanks to the MISTI too for making it so easy to be creative. I love how your card turned out and thanks for sharing your creativity!

  22. These roses always turn out stunning, and the misti looks like it makes the layered stamping so much easier, I wish I had one to make the stamping easier, as I have this wonderful set.

  23. Beautiful card and you make it look so easy!! Always so inspired by watching the demos you and others are willing to share!

  24. Absolutely GORGEOUS!!! So happy your back May:) surely missed your lovely cards!!! Misti and Altenew are so perfect together.

  28. Beautiful Card. Funny but Vintage Roses is the only Altenew stamp set I have…so far.Hope I can win so I can increase my collection. Also, I think I am the only crafter w/o a misty!!!

  29. Beautiful card using a beautiful stamp set. I struggle a bit with the background when I use a large focal image. Your use of the thin diagonal stripes is perfect, as it does not draw the eye away from the flowers. Oh! and I do love those clear droplets. Thank you for sharing your talent and the opportunity to win a prize.

  35. What a beautiful card, May! Thank you so much for sharing your talent and sweet self with us AND for participating in this exciting hop and giveaway!

  36. I wouldn’t have thought to add stripes to the background, but the boldness offsets the pretty roses. Thank you for inspiring me to try something different!

  37. Thank you so much for the tutorial. I love your beautiful card, and I also loved watching the design process.

  38. The multi-stamping technique was made for the misti – or vice-versa.
    The flowers are beautiful. The colors are so soft and pretty.

    thanks for sharing.

  41. So much work turned out so realistic! Just beautiful and I’m sure everyone would love to receive such a work of art!

  42. What a great idea to line up the flowers on a tray so you know what order to stamp them in and then to do them all at once with a Misti. Brilliant! Great arrangement and colors on your card, May.

  43. Gorgeous card, May, and your roses look so realistic. It was definitely worth the two hours it took to arrange them.

  46. Beautiful card, and I love the way you aligned the stamps and dies to speed up the process. Very clever!

  47. Wonderful layer roses to grace the front of your card. It was also interesting how you places all the same stamps st one time. That was a very useful tip and I hope to use it soon.

  48. ah…. your cards always take my breath away… So beautiful. The striped background reminds me of a soft, country feel, I love it 🙂

  49. I love how you used the mid to for this card. I would love.to win something.. your card is so fun.Thank s for Sharing.
