Altenew | Cards with Quotes

I recently mentioned that I prefer using quotes on my cards rather than simple sentiments, its not always possible, but I truly love having a good quote on a project. Today I’d like to share 3 cards I created for Altenew to help showcase their new quotes stamp set – Beautiful Quotes. I’m so happy they came out with another set like this (I’ve been asking Tasnim, the co-owner, to do another quote set), I’ve been a huge fan of Sentiments & Quotes and now I have more options to choose from.

GREAT MINDS DISCUSS IDEAS

I first created roses and leaves using images from the Vintage Flowers stamp set. I am always inspired by Aga’s creative use of color and fascinated by how she manages to use the most unexpected colors for the leaves.

I used Altenew’s Grays to stamp the leaves and Reds to stamp the roses. I also added a layer of clear embossing powder over the flowers to make the colors more intense. The sentiment was stamped in black ink directly onto a light gray card base.

MAKE SURE IT MAKES YOU HAPPY

The quote on my next project makes up for a fantastic encouragement card. I added watercolored flowers and leaves and went with my favorite teal and green color combination. I used images from the Peony Bouquet set and heat embossed them in gold onto watercolor paper. Identical design was stamped onto the background panel using light gray ink.

THE BEST DAY IN THE YEAR

Altenew | Every day is the best day in the year card using Beautiful Quotes and Magnolias for Her stamps

For the last project I went with my favorite layout for a card, I also used the same technique shared here where I colored the images outside the lines. The quote was heat embossed onto vellum and was wrapped around the front the of the card.

Flowers and leaves came from Magnolias for Her set and were also heat embossed in gold, watercolored and die cut using matching dies.

I truly believe a good quote can make a fantastic card and I can see myself using this stamp set many times in the future. If you’d like to see additional examples using cards with quotes, please click the thumbnails below:
