Altenew Paint-a-Flower: Gerbera Revolution

Today I’m excited to be joining in Altenew’s Blog Hop for the release of the Paint-a-Flower: Gerbera Revolution stamp set! These flowers come in many colors, but I fell in love with this burgundy version and thought that I would try to replicate it on my card. See below for a description of how I made it!

There is also an Altenew Giveaway with this hop, so scroll down for those details too!


  • I used a Grapevine Crisp Dye Ink cube to make the edging on the background panel. When it was dry, I used a corner rounding punch.
  • I used the Dotted Swirls Debossing Die on a piece of cream-colored cardstock & then rounded those corners too.
  • I stamped the Gerbera onto a piece of vellum and heat embossed it with Rose Gold Embossing Powder.
  • Next I colored the flowers and leaves on the BACK of the vellum with Artist Alcohol Markers.
  • I fussy-cut the whole image out and adhered it to the cream panel with double-sided adhesive tape.
  • The sentiment is from the Gerbera set, and it is also heat embossed with rose gold.
  • I fussy-cut it out and put it on a small background made with one of the Featured Sentiments Dies & colored with a Grapevine Artist Marker.
  • The embellishments are Antique Gold Sequins.

    These gerberas are beautiful Thanks for the inspiration Sande, you did a wonderful job recreating the picture. This is a beautiful color, but sometimes it is hard to โ€œshadeโ€, you see, I am a heavy handed colorist and I constantly struggle with dark colors, You have inspired me to give them a try! Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. WOW You did a beautiful job coloring those gerberas. I love that dark rich color. I usuall go more to like and elegant but this color is stunning thfs ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow! I think my jaw hit the floor when I saw this gorgeous card of yours! I love the depth and richness you added to this gerbera daisy stamp! The gold embossing powder sets this off in a wonderful way! I currently use copics for markers. I would like to work my way into the Altenew markers as they run out. Do you know if there is a conversion chart somewhere? Thank you so much!

      Thanks so much Traci! You have no idea how much I appreciate your comment! I don’t know of a conversion chart, unfortunately. Altenew does have their own marker color chart that you can download from their website and compare. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’d like to invite you to check out my Facebook Cardmaking Community…. ๐Ÿ™‚

    You hit it out of the park matching color of Gerbera Daisy. I love the idea of coloring background paper with same color ink and the use of Rose Gold embossing powder. Great choice using Dotted Swirls die as background for flowers. Stunning! Thanks for sharing!
