Hello! I hope you are having wonderful holidays with your family and friends. I am spending lots of time with the kiddos and slowwwwly working on getting into my new craft room. But today I am here to take part in Altenew’s A Year In Review Blog Hop.
I think this is a great idea — to look back at projects you have done throughout the year. I find it very inspiring!
I am sharing four cards I enjoyed creating using Altenew. Let’s take a look…
Negative Space Coloring
Who says you have to color inside of the lines? For these cards, I added the color around the stamped images. It is a bold look you can do with any outline stamps! I used the Altenew Botanical Garden and You Are stamp sets. Here is the video…
STAMP LAYERING WITH VELLUM
My third and fourth cards also show a fun way to use outline stamps. All you need to do is trace a stamped image with fun gel pens. You can get completely different looks by changing up the pen and paper colors. This technique worked great with the Altenew Adore You Stamp Set. Here is the video…
Here is a closer look at the two different looks…
I encourage you to look back on cards you have made in the past year… you may be inspired to revisit some techniques you liked!
