Welcome, Crafty Friends! Today’s card is my final card for Altenew’s All About Layering 2 Class taught by Nicole Picadura. This class is perfect for those who are new to layering stamp sets. I highly recommend you checking it out at https://altenew.com/products/all-about-layering-2. This class and her All About Layering 1 Class are currently FREE. I love Altenew’s Beautiful Day set so I used it but did not use the outline stamps in the set just the other layered stamps for both the flowers and leaves.
I used Altenew’s Firefly, Grass Fields, and Shadow Creek mini ink cubes for the leaves. Blush, Pink Pearl, Coral Bliss, Peach Perfect, Rouge and Crimson were my choices for the flowers. Each flower I stamped in a different combination of colors. For the background I masked off my images. Not sure what happened but they did not turn out as usual. They looked terrible. However I was not about to throw out all that work so I figured out a way to make the card work. I stamped some leaves and another flower then fussy cut them out.
I layered some pearlescent vellum from Lawn Fawn over my back ground image and it hid my mistakes perfectly. I stamped a sentiment from Altenew’s Build a Flower Columbine set on some black cardstock and embossed using Altenew’s Crisp Embossing Powder in Pure White. I added some foam tape to the sentiment strip and tucked my flower and leaves around it. The card needed a little more sparkle so I grabbed some crystals from Pink Fresh Studio. The card front was then mounted on a landscape folded heavy weight card base.
Thank you for stopping by to see my latest card creation. Always remember that there is usually always a way to save something we think we ruined and turn it into a card that will brighten someone’s day!!
