Beautiful Details class
Altenew class on beyond basic backgrounds
So it begins...moving onto level 2 of the Altenew Educator Certification Program. I’m really enjoying how these classes are providing such interesting challenges that are pushing me to rethink how I use my current supplies. The class, Beyond Basic Backgrounds, had a lot of different ideas in building backgrounds using stamps, foil, inks, bleaching and dies that I was inspired to try a few ideas. In this card, I built a background using the Altenew warped speed stencil and gold transfer foil. Read along for the process of making this card.
AECP Level 1 final project
Hello and thank you for joining me on today's post. I have been working through the Altenew Educator Certification Program and have completed 10 lessons within the program and submitted a total of 10 posts with 19 card designs. I have been very inspired by the classes I have been taking on Altenewacademy.com. For today's card, I was issued a challenge to make a card that could be suitable for a masculine card or for a teenager and have the theme of either birthday or encouragement or congratulations. In building this card, I used techniques and inspiration from four different classes at Altenew Academy: For the guys, Easy Die Cutting, Let it shine and Easy Ink Blending. Please read along for how I put together this card.
Hero Arts has been putting out monthly stamp kits that include: stamps, dies, paper and some embellishments for over a two years now. It is a great way to get a set of exclusive stamps and accouterments for a great price. The Kits sell out quickly so you need to either pay for a subscription or order quickly. I like ordering these because I come up with a ton of ideas of what to do with them quickly. Here are a few of my ideas using the August Kit highlighting: die inlay, stencils and watercoloring.
Using backgrounds as a focal point
