Altenew Educators “Floral with Geometric Elements” Blog Hop and Linky Party + Giveaway

0 47 Comments


Today I am part of the Altenew educator’s blog hop and I am very honored. You probably came from the blog of Jaycee Gaspar. You are very welcome to go on all blogs, you will see tons of amazing cards! This hop is all about the floral and geometric elements. I had a little challenge with what geometric to compose into my cards because I don’t have a lot of things like that. First I admit I google out what all goes to the geometry, it is far away from fine when I learned math. So I remembered that I have a really good and useful stamp set from Aletenew called Basic borders. I absolutely love this set! It is so useful, we can use it in so many ways and for so many occasions. For florals, there was no problem. I made the cards below.

And this blog hop has also prizes:

Altenew is giving away a $30 gift certificate to 1 lucky winner! Please leave a comment here on the Altenew Card Blog by 12/21/2020 for a chance to win.

We will pick 2 of our favorite handmade creations from those who joined the linky party and they will each receive a $15 Altenew gift certificate!

I don’t know if you remember or if other parts of the world have the same blue splashed water ceramic tiles as we in Slovenia about 40 years ago. So that was my inspiration for this card and I decided to go with a popular slimline card.  

So I decided to make a background blue in the smooshing technique. and then emboss squares from the Watercolor Frames stamp set. Then I stamped this beautiful peony from the Aletenew Peony Spray stamp set and colored it in light pink colors and cut it out with a coordinating die. I want the sentiment to stand out and emboss the sentiment in silver on black paper. For a little bit more dimension I glue flower and sentiment with foam on the bacground.

For the next cards, I decided to go with Christmas cards. It is time for them now. 

For that one, I took my beloved stamp set Basic borders and I embossed gold stipes and shade the whole paper in green. Then I embossed sentiment also in gold. And then I emboss poinsettias and leaves from Poinsettia & Pine stamp set. I colored it and cut it out from watercolor paper. I wanted a little bit more dimension on the card and adds some white splatters with white Perfect pearls.  

Then I glue flowers and leaves on the card base. I also decided to go with a slimline card.

The last card is totally for my soul. I love black, but on cards is so hard to use if for the main color. I went out of the box. I went in black. And you will probably ask what pine cones have in common with flowers. They are actually flowers of the pine trees. 

So I took the gold paper and cut out the background and scalloped the frame for the sentiment. Then on the black paper, I emboss circles from the Watercolor Frames in gold. Then I embossed the sentiment in gold too on the black paper. I also embossed in gold the pines from the Poinsettia & Pine stamp set from Altenew. I color pine brown. Then I cut out some greens and a nice gold bow and put it all together.

I know it is not usually a card and is probably totally different from what you would expect for geometry and floral theme. But I love it. What do you think? Please leave a comment below.

Danes sem del Blog hopa, ki ga je za edukatorje organiziral Altenew. Tema tokratnega blog hopa je geometrija in rože. Na pravi voščilnici sem uporabila za inspiracijo uporabila inspiracijo v tisthi starinskih modrih ploščicah, ki so izgledale kot polita voda. Za drugi dve pa sem se odločila, da bosta božično-novoletni. Za pravo sem se odločila za malo bolj tradicionalno. uporabila sem zelene, zlate in rdeče tone. Zadnja pa je čisto za mojo dušo in čisto nič tradicionalna. Odločila sem se črno, zlate in zelen tone. Morda se boste spraševali kaj pravzaprav imajo skupnega storži in rože, sotrži so pravzaprav cvetovi smreke. Vem, čisto out of the box, amapk meni je zelo vešč, kaj pa tebi? Povej mi spodaj v komentarju.

  1. Very pretty! Your cards are wonderful and I like all of them. My favorite is the last card with the gold and black. Thank you and Happy Holidays!

  2. Lovely! I enjoyed each card you made, especially the flower of the pine tree card LOL! Such stunning colors and arrangement, and the curved "petals" never gave me any doubt of the flower element in this card.
