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 :)
