Altenew Academy Classes – All About Layering 1

January 24, 2020

Kia Ora Koutou

I have been practicing my layered stamping with the Antique Roses stamp set as part of my class at Altenew Academy (All About Layering 1) and I am very happy with my progress so far.  I am getting more confident with this stamp set and I am looking to complete the class for my Altenew Educators Programme soon.  In the meantime here is a card made with this stamp set.  I love the pink and green combination I have used here.  The green really makes the pink roses pop on the crisp white background.

 

 

 

To create the base for the flowers I have cut a piece of gold foil card to fit the white base card 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.  I then cut a piece of white cardstock slightly smaller at 4 2/16″ x 5 6/16″ and embossed using the Stampin’Up Tufted 3D embossing folder before adding it to the front of the card. I die cut two frames using the Handstitched Accents Die from Heartfelt Creations and adhered them together before adding to the card front with foam tape.

I have stamped the rose images from the Antique Roses set on Neenah Solar white card with Pink Diamond, Coral Berry, Ruby Red and Grapevine inks and the leaf images from the Antique Roses set with Firefly, Grass Fields and Shadow Creek inks.  I found this colour combination to work well and was very pretty.  I then die cut with the coordinating dies and played around for a while to get a pleasing composition.  I have used foam tape to create more dimension with the flowers to make them pop out more.

To finish this card I stamped the beautiful image from the Best Sentiments stamp set I received from Altenew as thank you gift and heat embossed it with gold powder, trimmed it and added it to the front of the card with some foam tape.

I hope you like this card and I really encourage you to look at the Altenew classes.  There is always something new to learn!

Happy Crafting
