Altenew Build-A-Garden: Magnificent Branch Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello friends, welcome to the very first of the Altenew's BAG series called Build A Garden Magnificent Branch. This release features a very large stamp set which you can use to

create two card fronts at once with this first-of-its-kind floral stamp set! The imaginative set features a magnificent tree branch bearing flowers that you wouldn't normally see together in nature. Cut the design just right for a card featuring the cupped rose and another card featuring the flat rose. Stamp the heartwarming sentiments and quotes to inspire your loved ones. I am so glad you are joining me from the wonderful and talented designer Susan Stagno blog.


For my projects today I have used the stamp in two ways. For my first card I have used it in its complete format and for my second card I have used it the way it is intended to be used.


I stamped the large BAG Magnificent Branch stamp on a white card stock and colored it using Altenew Artist Markers. I also added dew drops using my colorless blender pen and markers.

After I had finished coloring, I fussy cut the image very close to the black line and adhered it using foam adhesive to the front of a tall slim line card.


Here is one more look at the entire card and the amazing stamp set.


For my second card as you can see I have used only one part of the branch. This is a one layer card, which means I have not added any dimensions using foam adhesive. I drew in a circle and the stamped the branch with side of the smaller flower. I made sure that the branch went out side the circle in some places.


I colored the stamp image and the circle using Altenew Artist Markers. In order to make the branch look dimensional, I added a drop shadow using a gray marker. This card size is a mini slim line.

I hope you got some ideas, how you can use this new BAG Magnificent Branch stamp set for your next card project. Next Stop on the hop is the talented SathyaKala Sankaran.
