Layers of Letters featuring Altenew

As most of you know I've been working on my Altenew Educator certification to teach Altenew classes! Well, they've added some new classes, one is all about Dies! Yeah, me!!  Lydia Evans is the instructor, I love the way she thinks! This is just one of the many classes she has and I totally had to do it!  Dynamic Die Cutting Class with Lydia is open to everyone!

Here we go... As you can see from the image below this card has lots of layers... thus the name of today's post.

Let's start with the color: you can use colored cardstock, or you can use Ink like I did.
Today's card features the brand new ink colors, called Sweet Dreams, these blues are amazing!
They come in two sizes mini ink cubes or full-size oval ink pads and they have reinkers as well. 
The make me happy is the You Make Me happy mini stamp set. I masked off the "you" and inked it in the Jet Black Ink oval pad.  The letters are from the Caps Bold Alpha Die set.

Altenew Challenge - Feb 2018

I am back with my card for the February Challenge at Altenew.

I was all in for the colors, so here's my card for the inspiration challenge.

I started by inking up Bamboo Roses in Altenew Crisp Inks Permanent Black which works perfectly with their Artist Markers ( G702, G715, R206, R302, R403).  The dies were super easy to line up and cut!  I used the Halftones Circles Nesting dies to cut a piece of  Forest Glades and Cube Cover Die in White Cardstock for a layer along with the same cardstock for the base card.  From there I took the Frosty Pink ink pad and colored the base card with it, to give a soft feel between the layers. I added the Hi in black using Caps Bold Alphabet. Finally, I added the enamel dots and started putting the card together, laying the pieces until I was happy.
I love the finished look and feel of it, I hope you do too!

Until next time
