The In My Thoughts Stamp by Altenew is a perfect stamp for making your own sympathy cards! It is a part of the brand new April Stamp and Die release by Altenew. I experimented with adding some extra special touches with layering stamps to get some fun results. I tried both the mirror image stamp and embossing techniques.
To celebrate this release, I am giving away. $30 gift certificate for commenting on my blog. Additionally, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 6 lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog by Saturday, April 21st for a chance to win. 6 winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 4/22/2018.
The In My Thoughts stamp has great sentiments for both the inside and outside of the card. I just adore Altenew's unique and heartfelt sentiments that are always included in their sentiment sets. This tree is also very versatile in that you can stamp the flowers around the tree in any colour you wish. You could make this stamp work for any season.
I used a Mirror Image Stamp is create a mirror image of the tree. When I looked at the tree, it curved in such a way that I thought it would create a beautiful frame if I mirror imaged it. The layering is not 100% perfect in the mirror image but it is still beautiful.
Be sure to check out the other blogs on the hop in order to get a TON of inspiration using the new release. Your next stop is Reiko Tsuchida.
I am submitting this card as an entry for my Altenew Educator Certificate. After learning so many techniques in Altenew's “With a Twist” class, I was inspired to try layering in a whole new way with embossing powders!!
