Clean & Simple Boutique Cards

  Boutique Cards Welcome back my crafty friends, this Boutique Card that I made is from my specialty paper (rock salt water colouring) leftover from my previous project. One of the techniques that were taught in this class by Jennifer Rzasar was to use high-end stationery. I was also able to incorporate vellum, glitter cardstock and a beautiful Dotted Scales debossing cover die for the background.  Cut out three 3.5 cm by 3.5 cm from your rock salt paper. With a black marker go around the edges of the three squares. Cut out one 7.5 cm by 7.5 cm from black glitter cardstock. Use the terrific tags die set to cut out one piece from black glitter cardstock and one piece from rock salt paper. Use the Painted Butterflies stamp and die to stamp three butterflies on the rocksalt squares and one onto vellum. Cut the vellum butterfly out with its coordinating die and cut one extra butterfly out of rock salt paper to lay behind the vellum piece. Stamp the sentiment from Geo Frames onto the tag, m

Creative Watercolour Media

Hi to all,  I am so glad to be continuing onto my Level 3 courses with Altenew. Yes, I am learning lots of new things on the way, and perhaps soon when I gain more confidence, my goal would be to have a complete video of the process for my project. This project is about using simple household items to give my water colouring a new look! Cut out two pieces of watercolour paper 4.5" x 6" then stick all sides down with washi tape. Use a spritzer to spritz water on both generously. While the paper is still wet drop the colours directly on and go back on forth as you need to darken any areas. With the first paper put a piece of cling wrap on top covering the whole surface, and the second sprinkle rock salt on top. Leave to air dry. With the first remove the cling wrap and cut out a feather die. Place the Halftone stencil on top and lightly spritz with Iridescent shimmer spray. (Then flip the stencil over to the rock salt paper to use the leftover shimmer on the negative side of th

AECP Final Challenge - Level 2

Hi there! This post is all about my Final Challenge for Level 2 for the AECP. I'm going to be creating four masculine cards and an altered item/upcycled project. The three components I have chosen from the classes in level 1 and 2 are: Die-Cutting: I used die cutting in all of my four cards, and each card I tried a different technique to get more use out of my dies. Die-cutting is not just about cutting paper; you can also cut vellum, acetate, felt, foam and even thin fabric. The techniques are endless; a few of them are scrap inlay, shaker card, window card, embossed impressions, half cut die... Colour Your Day: It's about adding a splash of colour to your card, or choosing the right colour combination for your theme. Even an inspiration from a photo or an object. For my four projects, I intentionally picked the colours that would help to create a more significant visual impact for the occasion. Let it Shine: Ways to make your project shine by using embellishments may it be a
