This class shows ways to use many colors on a white background as well as monochromatic color schemes.
I have been dying to create a black-on-black card. This course was perfect to use this combination.
I began by preparing black cardstock with antistatic powder and dusted off the excess with an acrylic block. Next, I stamped outline images from Altenew’s Beautiful Day Stamp Set, and heat set black powder over it.
I placed my embossed card stock into my die-cutting machine with a plain sheet of white paper over it. The plain sheet of paper prevents marks from the well-worn cutting plates. I cut the card stock to various sizes, including A-2.
I centered Altenew’s fancy “for you” die onto the cardstock and ran it through my die cutter again, making sure to save the cut pieces. Next, I cut another for you die in silver card stock.
I added double-sided tape to the back of the embossed card stock and placed it onto a black notecard. Next, I added liquid glue to the back of the silver die, cut and inlaid it, and added the small pieces.
I added “dew drops” embellishments and 1/8 inch satin ribbon with liquid glue.
For this card, I chose different shades of purple. I began by inking Blossoming Branches 3D Embossing Folder. I used memento ink in Lulu Lavender for the flat areas and distress inks in milled lavender and seedless preserves for the 3D portions. Next, I lightly misted a white sheet of cardstock and ran it through my die-cutting machine in the folder. I then cut it into an A -2 size.
With pearlescent watercolor, I added darker shades of purple onto the details of the piece.
The sentiment is from Build-A-Flower: Crocus Layering Stamp & Die Set.
I kept this card relatively simple and masculine. I began with white card stock and Altenew’s Simple Shapes Stamp Set. Next, I used Memento dew drops inks in Lady Bug, Tangelo, Dandelion, and Pear Tart. Finally, I stamped each color three times using the solid square shape stamp.
I used a frame die cut from Altenew’s Mix and Match Frames Die Set used washi tape to secure it in the right place and ran it through my die cutter.
I chose the sentiment from Altenew’s Birthday Bash Stamp Set. I stamped it with black dye ink and placed a gold foil card stock piece onto a white notecard. I then attached the stamped piece with foam tape.
