Hello. Today’s video gives you a look at the new Altenew inks and also some cards featuring stamp layering.
Yep… there’s a new ink in town. And she is wonderful! The new Altenew Crisp Dye Inks are gorgeous and stamp solid and crisp. What sets these inks apart is that there are four shades of each color – a light, medium, dark and very dark. This takes the guess work out of which colors go together and is helpful when doing techniques such as ombre inking, stamp layering, etc. (However, these inks are great all on their own as well. There are currently 12 inks, with shades in pink, yellow and green. You can get the pads in full size or mini… Simon Says Stamp will soon have the mini sets.)
Altenew’s Vintage Roses stamp set is the perfect stamp layering set. (You can see it in action in another of my videos HERE.) There are several images that you simply stamp on top of each other to create a gorgeous rose… each time stamping with a different shade of the same color. I used the new Crisp Ink colors to form pink and yellow roses and leaves. (For the helpful key for the Vintage Roses set, head HERE.)
To add a bit of interest to the white background, I used the amazing new Next Level Embossing Folder from We R Memory Keepers. The dimension to this is unlike any embossing folder I have ever used – it is multi-dimensional! The sentiments are from the Altenew Sentiments and Quotes Stamp Set.
These inks remind me of the excellent inks from Lawn Fawn and Ranger… so be sure to check out the video on them HERE. I know there are a lot of inks out there that I think stamp well. It is good to have so many options!
