Remember This - Altenew Education Certification Program Project


Today's card is inspired by the beautiful Remember This stamp set from Altenew.  Layering stamps are wonderful and for me they are the most fun when you get to layer different elements within the same image.  These pretty rosebuds are the result of 4 different stamps.  Two for the roses and two for the leaves.  The result is one cohesive image of beautiful rosebuds about to bloom.  Please look below for a list of all supplies used in the making of this card.

To showcase the beauty of these images, I kept the rest of the card fairly simple.  I started by stamping  a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" panel with another image included in the set, using Altenew Jet Black Ink.  Using a circle die, I cut out a portion of this panel.  On another panel of the same size, I stamped a sentiment from Altenew's Painted Inspiration, in Versafine Black Ink.  I then embossed it with clear embossing powder to give it some shine and dimension.  I layered the flower panel over the sentiment panel with foam tape in the middle.

I stamped and die cut 5 of the rosebud images and one of the largest flower image to create my springtime wreath.  The flowers are stamped with colors from the Cherry Blossom Mini Ink Cube Set and the leaves are stamped with the Field Greens Mini Ink Cube Set.  I popped up the large flower and every other rosebud around the circle opening using foam squares.  This created beautiful dimension to my card.

Finally, to add some shine I placed Pretty Pink Posh Dew Drops around the finished card and attached the entire panel to a card base.

Thank you so much for spending time with us today :)

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.…

Invisible Easel Card featuring EllenHutson.com's Mondo Sakura Stamps and Dies

I am in love with Cherry Blossoms!  They are so fun to color that whenever I see a Cherry Blossom stamp, I simply have to have it.  The new Mondo Sakura (Cherry Blossom in Japanese) and coordinating die from Ellen Hutson are no exception.  This set has another quality I love in my flower stamps:  they are HUGE!!!!!  Having all that space to color is just dreamy.  At first glance this card may seem complicated to create but I am here to dispel that myth. 
To create this card, you will need 2 sheet of 5" x 6" Hero Arts Acetate (one cut to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and one folded on one side at 1 1/4” inch on the 6” side);  2 sheets of 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" 110 lb white card stock (one cut with the cover die of your choice, and one folded in half and cut with the 3rd largest die from the Infinity Tag Frames Die set by Hero Arts [so you have 2 tags]); and 2 sheets of 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Bristol Smooth card stock (to stamp and emboss the Mondo Sakura on).  I will colo…
