Rainbow Flowers Layout

Rainbow flowers layout by @enzamg for @altenew. #scrapbooking #layout #stamping #flowers #altenewHello, Altenew fans!

Enza here, and today I’m sharing a layout that combines several stamp sets: Lotus, Painted Butterflies, and Beautiful Heart.

The inspiration here came from a photo found on Pinterest; it was a beautiful display of colorful flowers grouped by color. I thought it would be fun to recreate it on paper with the gorgeous Altenew Stamp Sets and Crisp Dye Inks.

Let’s see how it came together!

The first thing I did was prepare my background by spritzing Altenew’s Metallic Shimmer Ink Spray in Ocean Waves all over the bottom portion of a 12×12 smooth white cardstock. While this was drying, I started stamping the lotus flowers and stems. My goal here was to vary the colors of the flowers slightly, so to keep an ombre look.

  • red flowers: Crimson, Velvet.
  • coral flowers: Pink Pearl, Coral Bliss.
  • pink flowers: Rose Quartz, Razzleberry.
  • yellow flowers: Fresh Lemon, Warm Sunshine
  • stems and leaves: Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, Evergreen.

Once everything was ready, I adhered it down with foam adhesive for dimension, overlapping the images for a more realistic look.

The sentiment came from the Beautiful Heart Stamp Set and was heat-embossed with Altenew’s Translucent Pearl Crisp Embossing Powder.

I then slightly offset the die cuts before adhering them down to showcase the beautiful range of different shades.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have found some inspiration in my colorful project.

LOVE this page! Such vibrant colors and contrasts. And I like the misting, too. Using foam pops behind the flowers is a great idea.
One question: How do you keep your white cardstock from buckling with the misting? This defies me!

Hi Kathy! I use 110lbs cardstock for backgrounds and only spray a maximum of three times. The paper warps when it’s wet, but returns flat once it dries. I hope this helps 🙂
