Altenew | Stamp Focus: Watercolor Halftone

Hi friends,

Today I will be sharing several ideas of how the newly released Watercolor Halftone Stamp Set can be used. It’s a beautiful and quite unique set that contains three floral images of different shapes and sizes and sentiments for many occasions.

Due to the nature of this set all my cards happened to be monochromatic. Mainly because I felt like this (and I like making mono or duo toned cards in general). But this set can be definitely used for multi colored stamping as well.

INK BLENDED MONOCHROME

For my first example I made a sympathy card. Those can be challenging to make when it comes to design. I always am concerned to not make it inappropriately over decorated. You know what I mean? So usually I go with a quite minimalistic and simple design.

I started making the card by first ink blending the Olive Dye Ink onto a Solar White panel. I did more heavily inking towards the top part and sides. Next I blended the very edges of existing blending using the Moss Dye Ink.

Then I stamped the biggest floral image from the set using the Moss Dye Ink. I also stamped the sentiment in the bottom right part of the panel.

After that the panel was foam mounted onto a white card base. Lastly I added several clear droplets.

BLACK AND WHITE MONOCHROME

Or I should rather say – gray and white, as I did  gray tone stamping for this card.

I stamped the middle sized and the flower from the set using the Pure Graphite Dye Ink onto a white cardstock and then die-cut them using the matching dies.

After that I made a card base out of a Solar White Cardstock and added black splatters onto it. Then I popped up the floral die-cuts onto the card.

To finish off the card I white embossed a sentiment onto a Jet Black Cardstock strip and popped it up onto the floral focal point.

HIDDEN SENTIMENT MONOCHROME

For my last card I decided to go with always winning design of “hidden” sentiment.

First I stamped a background onto a white panel using all floral images from the set with the Sapphire Dye Ink.

After that I die-cut a word LOVE out of the stamped panel using the Caps Bold Alphabet Die Set. I also die-cut each letter of this world 6 times out of a Navy Cardstock. Then I made dimensional letters by adhering corresponding die cuts one on top of another with the background piece on top.

I trimmed the panel using Tonic Studios Guillotine Trimmer to make it 1/2″ smaller than an A2 card size and adhered it onto a Navy card base. I was using my Scotch ATG Tape Runner for this and I was applying taped adhesive not just around the edges of the card but also in the middle part. So the adhesive was exposed through the die cut openings in the panel.

After that I inserted all dimensional letters that I made previously into their corresponding negative openings in the panel where I already had adhesive in.

Next I added one more sentiment piece (white embossed on black) onto the card. I used a stamp from the Thank You Builder Stamp Set for this die-cut.

Lastly I adhered several Onyx and Snow Crystals using the Ranger Multi Medium Matte (my ultimate choice when it comes to small and non paper embellishments).

Here you have three ideas of how this amazing set can be used. As I mentioned above I was feeling as making monochromatic cards using this set but all designs can definitely be replicated in more colorful versions.

Have a wonderful day!
