Altenew Camellia Japonica Build-A-Flower Stamp Set - Kelly Janes

I started my layout with one of the 12×12 Patterned Papers from the Our Family Scrapbook Collection. I cut the Brick House Cut File from The Cut Shoppe in white cardstock and positioned it over the patterned paper. Using my Misti Stamping Tool, I stamped the Camellia Japonica Stamp in multiple colors (coral, purple, pink, yellow, orange and the leaves in green), and I used the Camellia Japonica Die Set to easily cut out each flower. Let’s just take a moment to look at the gorgeousness of this flower stamp set. I’m still amazed each time I put the layers together. I still in awe of the depth and dimension of Altenew’s Build-A-Flower Stamps!

I positioned two clusters of the flowers on the layout; one on the outside of the cut file and the other underneath the cut file. I love the added dimension this brings the layout! I also tucked the leaves under and over the cut file for even more dimension.

I didn’t think the layout needed a whole lot of embellishing because the stamped flowers add so much to the layout by themselves. I added my title using Black Alphas from the Live Your Dream Scrapbook Collection, a few Watercolor Butterfly Stickers, and a scattering of Enamel Dots.

Altenew June 2019 Stand-alone Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hey there friends! I’m so excited to be joining in the Altenew June 2019 Stand-Alone Die New Release blog hop! If you started from the beginning of the hop you would have come from Emily Midgett’s Blog. If you’re just starting here, WELCOME. You can make your way around the entire hop by clicking the link at the bottom of my post.

Altenew - Virginia Rose 3D Die - Color Wheel Die - Kelly Janes

I started my layout today by cutting the new Color Wheel Die three times using scrap paper. I then positioned those die cuts horizontally on a sheet of white cardstock. I then pulled a few mists from my stash that I thought would blend well together (a couple pinks, oranges and yellows) and started spraying the paper, so I essentially used the Color Wheel Die as a stencil. After I removed the scrap pieces of paper I had this really soft, pretty color on my background.

I then cut the Virginia Rose 3D Die multiple times using similar colors as the mists. I assembled the flowers and was AMAZED at the amount of texture those flowers have after they are put together. I especially love the layers that were cut using textured cardstock.

I arranged the flowers using the tone-on-tone technique with the mists. I almost wanted to stop there! HA! The colors and texture was just so pretty! I decided on a black and white photo so it wouldn’t compete with the colors I had on the layout. The photo is of my two dogs sleeping on the couch. We went from itty bitty Shih Tzus to these very large dog so we affectionately call them the “bigs”, so I used the title “My Bigs” for this layout using the Black Alphas from the Altenew Reflection Scrapbook Collection.

This layout was really easy to put together and it actually took my longer to assemble the flowers than it did the entire layout!
