All About Layering 1

Happy Friday!

I have another Altenew Academy card to share today. This card is for the All About Layering 1 class. This is a great (and free!) class that helps you learn how to best line up and use your Altenew layer stamps. There are loads of fun card ideas too!

The class features 
  • Golden Garden
  • Scribbled Flowers
  • Whimsical Flowers
  • Painted Flowers
  • Painted Poppy
  • Layered Lily
  • Vintage Flowers
  • Vintage Roses
  • Watercolor Wonders
  • Painted Butterflies
I decided to have some fun with the Painted Poppy set. I started off with the main line art image of the poppy. I did some careful inking to avoid the stem, since I only wanted the blossoms on here. Next, I decided on the rest of my colours and stamped the solid corresponding images, being sure to not have the same colour immediately next to each other. To add a bit more interest, I stamped the solid image of the leaf image in the remaining empty spaces. I really love how it turned out.

The final touch was to figure out a sentiment. My friend let me use her Many Thanks set. This set is really quite great for any sort of thank you card. I just loved using it! 


  1. Delightful!! Love the color combo and how you color-layer the images! Thanks so much for entering your beautiful work in Altenew AECP assignment Gallery. Beautiful colors and design. Well done!

  2. Pretty card, like your paper choice!
