Hello everyone! We are celebrating Altenew’s 8th year anniversary with a special blog hop. If you have been following along, you have just come from the wonderful Preeti. If this is your first stop and you would like to start at the beginning, you can do so at the Altenew blog linked here.
For today’s card inspiration, I used the beautiful Golden Days Layering stamp set.
I stamped the outline with Obsidian ink and stamped the layers using the inks from the Warm & Cozy set of mini ink cubes. The leaves are stamped with Parrot & Olive from the Tropical Forest set of mini ink cubes.
For the background, I used the Herringbone 3D embossing folder on white cardstock. I used the Diamond Frame Cover die, die-cut out of Jet Black cardstock as the background accent.
The sentiment “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” is from the Essential Sentiment Strips die set.
Here is another inspiration using the same stamp set. I taught this technique over at an online card class hosted by My Little Attic Studio shop. If you would like to view a recording of the class, I will link it here.
