Inlaid Die Cutting Technique With Patterned Paper

Altenew recently had a new class on 3D Florals that was all about using their layered floral dies.  I’m halfway through the class and I’m enjoying it very much. I decided to use a slight twist on the 3D Florals by using the Rose Filament Die set.  This is not a layered die, but I… Read More »

  This week’s Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge is a nice clean and simple layout.  I peeked at the cards the other design team members made and realized that they all used patterned backgrounds. I’ve been skimping on the backgrounds lately, favoring some simple and quick splatters.  (I’m practicing my technique.) I also felt that this… Read More »
