VIDEO TUTORIAL: Stamped Patterns for Cardmaking - Altenew 5th Anniversary Blog Hop!



Hi Everyone!

Welcome to a Blog Hop celebrating Altenew's 5th Anniversary! I remember when the company first launched and I was immediately hooked to their beautifully designed stamps and inks that coordinate perfectly with each other! It would be best to start from Altenew's blog to take part in the hop and get a chance to win some amazing prizes!

You have probably arrived here from the seriously talented Kymona Tracey's Blog!


Prizes
Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 5 lucky winners and one Altenew Academy class to 10 lucky winners. There are also 14 awesome companies/crafty friends who are celebrating with us, and they are offering the following prizes:


I made a series of cards using Altenew's Trigonometry Stamp Set which is one of my favourites to use for pattern building. I made a video showing off how to create easy stamped backgrounds for cards and various projects using this set and some of Altenew's Cube Inks!





It's fun to see the different kinds of patterns that you can create using this set!



This is the card that I made in the video. The cube ink colours work so beautifully together! If you are struggling to find a colour palette that you like, you can have a look in Pinterest for colour inspiration!



I stamped with white pigment ink on this card, I love the dimensional look that it gives!


And here's another fun card that I made using the tiny triangles from the set, I love that they look like confetti! :)


Thank you so much for taking part and I hope you all have a great day! Your next stop is Bea Valint!
