For The Guys

20 June 2021


Hello friends! Here is my card for the class I just finished called "For The Guys" which is the 5th class in the Altenew  AECP Level 1 certification that I have been working on for the past several months. Stamp sets used were Trigonometry and Retro Plantines. 

It's always hard for me and everyone else I think to create a masculine card. Most of the sets I own have floral images which is a bit too feminine to call it masculine. The Trigonometry stamp set by Altenew is perfect for a more manly type of card. I use this set quite often to make birthday cards for men. I did add a few leafy branches as a finishing touch. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Hugs, Rema

Easy Ink Blending

19 June 2021


Hello and welcome! The card I am sharing today is for the Altenew Easy Ink Blending Techniques class that is part of the Altenew Education Certification Program (AECP) for Level 1. The techniques shown in this class are some of the easiest ways to add color to your projects. Amy Lee taught the class and showed a variety of ways to create a beautiful background from simple ink blending to ink blending/emboss resist to Faux water coloring. In the past 12 years I have used all of the techniques that Amy demonstrated so there wasn't anything new that she showed that I haven't already done. It was pretty much a refresher course for me but it was still a good class.

The stamp sets used to create my card were Peaceful Serenity and Soar.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Hugs, Rema
