Cardmaking Tutorial | Large Floral Stamps & Stencils You Can’t Miss
All the details for these cards are in this card making video tutorial. Watch here or in HD on YouTube. While you’re there, I’d love it if you liked, subscribed, and rang the notifications bell.
Mega Bloom Stencil
Mega Bloom is right, this flower stencil is huge and fantabulous! This festive flower was created with a mix of ink blending and Artist Marker coloring.
I am always inspired by Alex Syberia’s dot coloring and gave it a go with Mega Bloom Stencil. This was another one of those ugly duckling cards that turned into a swan.
I finished off the card with Altenew Satin Gold Sequins to reinforce the dot texture.
Sweet Spring Stencil
Next up is, Sweet Spring Stencil, which is a gorgeous and easy to use floral layering stencil.
I opted for a vertical arrangement to do something a little different and ink blended with Volcano Lake and Midnight Violet.
Stay tuned, that encouraging sentiment is coming soon.
Statement Flowers Stamp Set
Aw yeah, Altenew Statement Flowers Stamp Set is definitely my new favorite. Today I watercolor, but I definitely want to use all the mediums with this stunning floral arrangement.
I adore Altenew Artists’ Watercolor 24 Pan Set. The pigments are crazy vibrant and they move effortlessly.
Watch the video to see how well Sea Shore and Cherry Blossom watercolor mix and blend on their own.
I created a few shades of green by mixing Green Hills with Cherry Blossom for a light green and with Sea Shore and Cherry Blossom to create a dark green.
Zig Zag Floral Stamp Set
Focus, Daniel-san. I was really tempted to create another 80’s throwback card, but I resisted. This edgy modern Zig Zag Floral Stamp Set will not be overlooked!
I skipped the solid layer and went straight for the detail layer in Obsidian Pigment Ink. The centers are Volcano Lake and Lagoon Crisp Dye Ink. Focus was die-cut from Simple Alpha
Sentiment Strips Stamp Set and the new Sentiment Strips 2 Stamp Set coordinate perfectly to create the sub-sentiments for this card.
Here’s one more version with Cotton Candy, Mango Smoothie, and Snapdragon Crisp Dye Inks.
These sentiments are from Mega Greetings 4 Stamp Set, an older favorite.

Beautiful Coloring, very inspirational. Lovely cards.
All such beautiful cards! I believe the two stencil rose one is my favorite and would possibly be something I would use over and over!! Your cards are so vivid and have such life to each one! Creativity on steroids and gorgeous!!

Bold colors generally scare me but these are gorgeous and very inspiring- thank you!

Totally inspiring Amber. Love the way you combine colours that you wouldn’t think that would go together.

Wonderful sample of what Altenew watercolors can do.

Amber, you had interesting color combos with the blue/lavender. Loved it. I am building my Altenew inks supply. Thanks for the inspiration.
Thanks so much, Maria! Their inks are so fabulous!!
Such luscious colors and textures! They’re all stunning.
Oh my goodness! You are so talented. I have never really done watercoloring, Thanks to you now I want to give it a try. The watercolor flower one is so pretty and very vivid. Thanks for letting me know about it. It’s nice that you told us what colors you used and everything. I am thinking l might just have to invest in the watercolor set you we’re talking about!
Thanks so much, Danyelle!! I think you’ll enjoy this set. There is enough color variation to get started painting straight out of the pans and then when you’re comfortable mixing colors even more possibilities.
I love Altenew! Your cards are beautiful. My favorite is the water color floral one and also the orange flower with the sequins
Thanks Marybeth! Those are my faves too.

I am a big fan of all things Altenew and your work is a fabulous. I lean toward a two-color palette and especially appreciate the black, white and teal design of the zig zag stamp set. Thanks for the inspiration!!!
What lovely cards! I am new to watercoloring – the large, open images are very appealing. I really like your color combinations – I think I’ll go try some now!
I learned so much from you about watercoloring and just taking a chance! Thanks!
As Mum used to say “Oh My Stars and Garters”, the stamp, “Statement Flowers”, is marvelous! Your card places the focus directly on this corker of a stamp and the colors you used make this card an eye-grabber. I so love your videos you are not afraid to show what you consider a “boo-boo” and how to make it into something spectacular. You have an easy narrative style that puts the view at ease – feels like a fireside chat loaded with lots of tips. Have learned so much from you and you are one of the artists that has convinced me that I might be able to do water color! Thanks a bunch and look forward to your next round of cards and videos. What an accomplished teacher and artist you are!
Oh, Mary, thank you, I needed this today. You have messaged me in the midst of a creative funk. (These cards were filmed weeks ago) I Have lots of deadlines coming up and can’t seem to get my creative juices flowing the last few days. Your message has inspired me to give watercolor a shot and see where the journey takes me. Big crafty hugs!!
Gorgeous cards!! Love the watercolor one especially!
What an array of cards — so creative and eye-catching. I especially like the Megabloom stencil card and the Hello Awesome You. Vibrant colors that are blended so well resulting in such depth!

I can’t believe how quick the layered stencil card was and resulted in I think my favourite of all of them. I love quick and easy cards. This one looks easy to mass produce. Your video was very inspiring. I really like how you shared that you thought you ruined the card, but you kept going. I have to say, I have given up on more than one card, and if it was me, I would have started over. Thanks for inspiring us to keep going and learning. You are amazing!
