Altenew Educator Ceritifcation Program/Sweet and Simple Card

I am so excited to be participating in the Altenew Educator Certification Program.  I am a huge fan of their inks and layering stamps and this just gives me another excuse to play with these beautiful products.  The first lesson is based on the Golden Garden Stamp set.  This is a whimsical floral set that requires little layering and doesn't have to be lined up perfect to look great.  It's one of my favorites :)
I created this simple card using 3 of the flowers in the set.  I selectively inked the outline stamp, with Altenew Crisp Dye Ink in Jet Black, so I could connect the stems together.  I simply inked up the image, wiped the unwanted parts of ink off with my finger and stamped the image on the desired location on my card panel.  Repeating for each of the 3 stems.  I finished off my black stamping with a sentiment from Altenew's Bejeweled Stamp set.

To color the flowers I selectively inked the fill in stamps with Altenew Crisp Dye Ink in Ruby Red and Parrot Ink. This is quit simple as the images are fairly defined and because of the carefree style of the images.  If it isn't exact it doesn't matter in the least.

After I was done with the stamping I trimmed the panel down to 4" x 5 1/4" and popped it up on a black card base with some foam tape.

I will use this card as a go to for gift giving.  It would take no time to create a quick set of thank you or hello cards.

I hope you enjoyed today's card.  I will be back soon with another project. Thank you so much again for visiting :)

My Monthly Hero April 2018 featuring One Die 9 Ways

As of this writing this kit is still available at www.heroarts.com while supplies last so if you would like the set hurry on over to purchase.
Have you ever needed a bunch of cards quickly?  I find in those situations a good cover die can go a long way.  There was a wonderful bonus in the April 2018 My Monthly Hero Kit, a full size cover die!  And this one is really special.  I created several sets of cards and a few singles--31 in total--in one day thanks to this timesaver, and I thought I would share them with you just in case you are ever in need of some quick cards for a gift or charity, to sell or just send out individually.  There are 9 different ways I used the die in total.  Most of these cards won't be decorated or have a sentiment yet.  That way I can customize them later, when I need them.

The products used in today's cards were minimal.  I used the kit, which included a huge, adorable stamp set; coordinating dies for many of the images; the aforementioned cover die…

Easy Ink Blending featuring Leaf Burst Stencil - AECP Level 1

Had some fun ink blending with a stencil today and such a pretty one at that.  This card was inspired by the Easy Ink Blending Techniques class at Altenew Academy.  It was a great class, check it out if you want to learn some new tips and tricks :)  Several techniques are discussed, from creating your own matching card stock to faux watercoloring. Here is a quick video of the process I describe below.  I was able to create this card using the Leaf Burst Stencil from Altenew.  I blended Wild Honey Distress Ink in the center and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink on the outer leaves.  To take it up a notch, I turned the stencil (so that the tall leaves overlapped the short leaves) and blended the Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink onto the page.  I was careful to use sticky notes on the open areas around the square so I had this pretty pattern only on the page.
I created a matching pink border by inking the edge of a 6" square piece of white card stock with the Picked Raspberry Distress Ink.…
