Altenew Educator Certification Program - All About Layering 1

Exciting news to share!  Recently I applied for and was accepted into the Altenew Educator Certification Program (AECP).  I'm looking forward to learning more about my craft from all the great instructors teaching these classes.

The first class I took is the All About Layering 1 Class.  It gave many good points on how to layer with the Altenew stamps.  For my card, I used the Build-A-Flower:  Morning Glory Stamp and Die set.  These sets are wonderful as they come with the stamp and the die.  It was the first time I've used the Altenew Crisp Dye Inks and I love them!  As you can see, the colors are vivid and cover well.

The card is a very simple one as it is all about stamping the various layers of the morning glory images.  To the card base I added a layer of black cardstock and placed my stamped layer on top of that.   

Stamp Sets:  Build-A-Flower:  Morning Glory, Painted Encouragement (Altenew)
Inks:  Caribbean Sky, Persian Blue, Sapphire, Sweet Leaf, Just Green, Jet Black (Altenew)
Cardstock:  Oreo, Sugar Cube (Taylored Expressions)
Other:  Clear Wink of Stella Brush

In future, I'll be sharing more of the cards I make for the various classes I'm taking for certification.  I can't wait to share them all with you.

Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,



  1. This is such a stunning card! I love the colors you used! Thank you for submitting to the AECP gallery :)

  2. What a great start to your program, I really love the colours you chose to stamp this, and so beautifully done too! I've given myself the challenge to finish level 1 and 2 by the end of August! Will you join me? Hugs, Gwendolyn

    1. Thanks, Gwendolyn! It's the first time I've used the Altenew inks and I really like them. Oh my, I'm not sure I would get all the classes done in just the one month. I wish you well on your challenge.
