Hi everyone! I’m on Altenew blog today sharing three ways you can use new Hello Sunshine stamp set. This set has many different of whimsical flowers and leaves and there are so many possibilities for this set.Altenew Hello Sunshine Stamp set - three ways to use. Cards by @s_shayevich


For my first card I went with creating a background using stamps from this set. You should admit – they scream “background of scattered floral elements”.

To start off first I stamped flowers and leaves using Velvet and Espresso inks onto a white panel. I started stamping bigger elements, stamping them in triangle manner. And then used smaller ones to fill gaps. Next I inked the background using Espresso ink, adding more color on the edges and working less heavy handed in the middle.Altenew Hello Sunshine stamp set is perfect for creating card backgrounds. Card by @s_shayevichAfter that hello word was stamped in the middle, using stamp from Super Script set stamped with Velvet ink. To add a bit more interest to the background I splattered some white and red spray. Then highlighted some white droplets using white gel pen.

I made a top folding A2 card out of Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, cut the panel a half inch smaller then the base and mounted it onto the base using white foam. Lastly I added some liquid dots using Nuvo Crystal Drops (Oyster Gray and Dark Walnut).

Lets have a moment here. There are real enamel dots on the market, they’re made of plastic and ideal. But a bit pricey.

And there are several “liquid enamel dots” products. Some of them work better, some worse.

I always was very sceptical about products like these. Meaning that nothing will compare with real dots.

But with this product I was very impressed. It does create enamel dots almost identical to the real one. There is small learning curve of how to use it. And you can have some waste as well. But overall it’s the great product. The colors selection is out of imagination.

Although there is one thing you maybe should consider. Products like these have shelf life. So even though they offer lots of colors, I’m sure not all of them if bought would be used to the bottle bottom.

Back to the topic now 🙂


The second card is stamping on wood paper. It wouldn’t be me, of I didn’t use wood paper from time to time. These floral images look very suitable for creating “pyrogravure” designs.Create a card with pyrogravure effect by stamping on wood paper with Brown ink. Wih Altenew Hello Sunshine. Card by @s_shayevichFor this card first I cut a panel out of Cherry Wood paper. Using a heart die I drew a heart with my pencil. And then stamped flowers and leaves with Dark Chocolate ink, using drawn heart as a guide. After that I erased pencil drawing.

To finish off the card I stamped the sentiment from Painted Greetings set in the middle of the heart, adhered the panel to a Kraft card base and added some wooden dots. I always cry when use these wooden dots. They’re like a treasure for me. And sadly there are not liquid wooden dots on the market ;(


The last card for today is what I call “Tiffany inspired”. I have several cards on my past of similar idea and design. “Tiffany blue” cardstock (Robin’s Egg would work as well) plus gentle and elegant design – that would be the recipe for such cards.Tiffany Blue cardstock and white embossing on vellum are perfect mach and is a great solution for an elegant and gentle card. With Altenew Hello Sunshine. Made by @s_shayevichTo make this card I first white embossed a row of flowers on a vellum panel. The cut it out and adhered to a mint card base. I white embossed a sentiment from Beautiful Day set. After that I added some florets, also white embossed on vellum and cut out. Several flat marshmallow sequins finished off the card.Tiffany Blue cardstock and white embossing on vellum are perfect mach and is a great solution for an elegant and gentle card. With Altenew Hello Sunshine. Made by @s_shayevichI usually use this design for a wedding cards, or for a person, which I have no idea what her taste is, but know she’s into jewelry and style.

So here you have three ideas of how to use this amazing Hello Sunshine stamp set.

    Я бы никогда не сказала по фото, что это не натур-дотсы. Прям очень похоже! Я сама в каждую работу их сую, и по несколько штук. Пока решила спастись заказом из Китая))) Купила 20 палеток за 1500. Надеюсь, надолго хватит)
    Эта деревянная такая вау! Надеюсь, в живую смотрится также деревянно. Я как-то побаиваюсь текстурной бумаги. Все кажется, что на фото будет вау, а в живую все равно видно, что бумажка…
    Ну и сами штмапы блеск, конечно! Я вот очень люблю рисованные цветы! Так что прям пищу))

      Спасибо, Аня!
      Ну эта бумага она гладкая. Из-за того, что это дерево есть некоторое растекание чернил, но на такое бумаге оно смотрится как раз как так и надо. Но так вообще как видишь получается достаточно четко.

    Светлана, классные работы! Но милее всех мне открытка в стиле Тиффани! Мятный и белый цвета и цветы – просто бальзам на душу… Про жидкие дотсы, полностью согласна. У меня тоже не получается идеальная форма, как у готовых.

    Сет классный, цветы всегда украсят и дополнят работу. А использование – очень интересное! Деревянная – просто натуральная :))) Я до последнего не верила, что это бумага :)))) и белый эмбоссинг понравился очень…
