Altenew | Mini Stamps

CAS Clean and Simple card using Altenew's Typewriter Flowers mini stamp and die bundle.

Using Mini Stamp Sets in Cardmaking

Hello and welcome! I think mini stamps can make such fun cards! This set, called Typewriter Flowers, is my new favorite mini stamp and die set. I wanted to create a clean and simple card and I like how this technique focuses on the whimsical typewriter.

I used my Altenew Artist Alcohol Markers to do some simple coloring. In addition to the regular brush, Altenew markers have a second fine coloring head for small areas. I used the fine nib a lot on this card and it is one of the reasons I usually reach for Altenew markers over other brands.

My second card uses Altenew’s Letter Flowers Stamp and Dies. I again colored with Altenew Artist Alcohol Markers and made a simple background using three strips of coordinating washi tape. I die cut the letter and adhered to my background with Instant Dimension Foam Tape.

This set makes such a bright cheerful card.

My last card uses Altenew’s Journal Flowers Bundle. I did some quick coloring and made a background with Altenew’s Playful Circles Embossing Folder. I adhered the book with Instant Dimension Foam Tape and then added a pink Enamel Dot to the center of the Turquoise flower.

I like the texture that the embossing adds to this card.

Altenew Mini Flan Cake

 I have a quick blog post for my two newest cards using  Altenew\’s Mini Flan stamp and die set.  For my first card, I used my  Large Blending Tool  to blend Sand Dunes and Mocha from  The Coffee Break Ink Cube Set onto some textured watercolor paper.  I then stamped, used water color markers and die cut the flan.  My sentiment is from new favorite  Essential Sentiment Strips.

I used watercolor markers on my second card as well.  The sentiment is from Essential Sentiment Strips. I also added three enamel dots from the New Day set.

I am so pleased that you stopped by!
