Card 1: Beautiful Backgrounds
First, I stamped the Zero-Waste Flowery Pattern in black ink on white cardstock. I then colored in all of the images using the coordinating layering stencils. This makes applying lots of different colors so easy!
Next, I added some opaque texture paste to the final detail layer. This added some fun dimension and sparkle to the card. Once the paste was dry, I cut down the card panel and glued it to a slightly larger panel of lilac cardstock. I then popped the finished panel up using some foam strips.
To finish things off, I added a heat embossed sentiment to the front of the card. Since the texture paste is very sparkly, I did not need to add any sequins. Love it!
Card 2: Easy Wreath Building
Did you know that Altenew offers online workshops? I recently finished Altenew’s Online Workshop: Polychromatic. The workshop is all about becoming confident with colors and color combos. For my class homework I decided to practice adding pops of color to a white background using the Craft Your Life Project Kit.
First, I stamped the Zero-Waste Flowery Pattern in black ink on white cardstock. I then colored in all of the images using the coordinating layering stencils. For the final detail layer, I used a palette knife to lightly apply glitter glue to the centers of all of the flowers and the small dots. This addition made the card very pretty and sparkly!
The most exciting part of creating this card was using the amazing die included in the Craft Your Life Project Kit! The die cuts out all of the stamped images in one go! I cannot get over just how easy it is to cut out all of the images.
Next, I stamped a sentiment in the center of a piece of white cardstock. I added a thin black matting layer before arranging all of the die cut images in a wreath shape and adhering them to the front of my card panel. To make things really pop, I added a strip of bright pink cardstock to the front of my card base before gluing the main card panel on top.
After you have arranged your die cuts, use Press’n Seal to pick up all of the die cuts at once so you can add adhesive to the back!
