For the guys

Image
Today I did a class taught by one of the co-founders of Altenew, Jennifer Rzasa, the course is called For the Guys, lesson 1 Geometrics.

This is what I came up with:



I did the layout in my Misti to figure out how I wanted this to look, this is a good way in my opinion to try things out before stamping.
And to get good ink coverage on your solid stamps, rub the surface with a white rubber eraser and remove any rubber flecks with your hand before you start stamping.


Altenew supplies:
Stamp sets:
Simple Shapes XL
Halftone Happy
Dies:
Happy Die
Crisp inks:
Autumn Blaze
Caribbean Sky
Pure Graphite
and a Misti - you could totally use acrylic blocks and a "manual" stamp positioner for this but the Misti does make it easier.

Here's a close up of the back of the card and the envelope, I like to make it the total package.

When Altenew announced the Altenew Educator Certification Program a little while back I immediately applied, obviously (!) this is my favorite stamp company, ever.
I love their designs, I have been following them since the start, I was awed when they came out with their first layering stamps, their crisp inks come in beautiful colors, so many reasons!

So you can imagine my delight when I was selected and received an invitation last week - YAY for me!



I need to have a blog to publish cards on, which is why I decided to revive this one while my lovely daughter and web developer specialist and I figure out what my blog should look like. We'll see.
For now, this is where the fun starts!
