Adding Dimension and Interest To Elevate Your Cards - Altenew Video

by - October 10, 2019

Hello! Welcome to all of my old and new friends! Today is an extremely exciting day as my first video in my brand new Lovely Layering with Ashlea series is live on the Altenew Youtube Channel! This series will help you build confidence in your ability to create beautiful cards simply. I'll focus on not just layered stamping, but also tips and tricks to adding layers to your card to create interest and dimension. 

For each video, there will always be links to the products used in the description, but I will also provide more in depth reasons as to why I chose these products, here on my blog. Before we get into that, check out my video here:

You can find a full list of all products used below

I chose this stamp set for a few reasons. One, it's simple to layer. The center of the flower are separate stamps so when you're layering the petal stamps, the center will always be the same size therefore very easy to match up. Anytime there's a flower with the center removed, it's a good giveaway that it'll be an easy set to layer. Two, the size of the larger flower is quite big. I knew that it would pair well with the Mega Alphabet H Die and not get lost on the card front.

The Leaf Clusters stamp set is an essential set for my craft stash. I love using these images to add scenery and dimension to my cards. In todays card, I stamped them directly onto the card front to add a base layer to my design.

The Mega Alphabet Dies are quite large and take up much of an entire A2 size card front. I especially love the "H" and "T" dies because they can stand for "hello", "happy birthday", and "thank you", as well as stand for someones name with those letters.

I would love to hear your feedback on my first video! By letting my know what you'd love to see more of, I'm able to customize this series for you. Thank you so much for stopping by and I'll see you again very soon!
