Hello Crafty Friends. Today’s blog post is about Altenew AECP All About Layering 2 class. I found my layering mojo in this class and saw a big improvement in my skills. The more you practice the easier it gets to line up the layers. I am excited to share this project with you!
For today’s project I used Altenew Hope stamp set. It has 3 layers for the flower and 3 for the leaves. I decided to Altenew pink inks for the flowers. The cool thing about layering stamps you don’t have to use all the layers. You can create different combinations of layers to make unique flowers. I used a Misti stamp positioning tool for stamping the different layers. The first layer – Pink Diamond, second layer – Pinkalicious and third layer Rubellite. For the leaves I used Altenew green inks, layer one – Bamboo, layer two – Parrot and third layer – Olive. The sentiment is from Mega Label Love stamp set. I stamped “Hi” with Versafine black ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.
I die cut all the flowers and leaves using the coordinating dies. I arranged the flowers on Neenah 80lb solar white cardstock panel cut 4.25″ x 5.5″. I glued the leaves and two flowers. The third flower I popped up with foam tape for dimension. I thought the background looked too plain. I took a black gel pen and created a dot pattern. I popped up the sentiment with foam tape. I glued the panel on to an A2 top folding cardbase from Simon Says Stamp.
Thank you for joining me today. I hope to see you for the next class on my AECP journey. Happy creating my friends.
