AECP Level 1- All about layering 1

Updated: Apr 29, 2021

What a great class with Nicole! All of her project inspirations and classes were wonderful!

I focused mostly on lesson 4 with layering the stamps and then die cutting. I didn't have the painted flowers stamp set, so I decided to make a card using the Ditsy Print flowers stamp set. I love this set; it is so whimsical and fun and I think you could use any color with it. I wanted to use the new Deep Blue Seas mini ink cube set with this stamp set so I took to my stash of paper to find something matching. I found a nice plaid paper with green in it as well which I thought would highlight the blues nicely.

I stamped the base image in sea breeze, then the second layer in turquoise, and the final top layer in starlight. The leaves are stamped with Memento mini inks in cottage ivy and northern pine. I stamped the outline image over the entire colored image in VersaFine black onyx ink. After this, I then die cut the circle out of the patterned paper and adhered it to my cardstock base. I die cut a smaller stitched circle (from the Stamps of Life stitched circle set). I inked the background with sea breeze and turquoise until I had a nice blend that I was happy with.

I purchased the coordinating die for this set so I then ran this through my Cuttlebug and adhered to the inked circle, then adhered this to the white base with Scotch foam tape so that it appeared to "pop" through. I took some coordinating blue cardstock from Bazzill (it was deep in my stash so I don't even know what color it is LOL!) and cut a banner out of it. I embossed that with a Cuttlebug dots embossing folder. I then stamped the "You are Fabulous" from the Altenew Beautiful day stamp set onto white 65 lb. cardstock from Recollections and adhered to the embossed banner. I adhered this to the cardstock base and voila!

It's a pretty basic card design but I really like how it turned out!

Altenew mini ink cube set in Deep Blue Sea
