Hello, crafty friends! Always happy to see you here! I’ve been playing with Wallpaper Art Stamp Set from Altenew March release.  First, I’d like to share a bright and bold card I made using my dotted coloring technique.

altenew-wallpaperart-alexsyberia-dotted-coloringI made a vertical card panel out of a Neenah Solar White Cardstock. I started by stamping the images with Memento black ink using masks. (Make masks using masking paper or masking tape and fussy cut out the images. Masking tape is a great alternative to masking paper) I then blended the Ocean Waves ink, Dusk ink and Mountain Mist ink onto my card panel.

To finish off the card I added Midnight Blue Crystals, I heat embossed a sentiment with white embossing powder and mounted it onto the panel.

Also, I have a video showing my process of dotted coloring from start to finish. You can find it HERE. I’m hoping you’ll enjoy it!

I like bright colors, but sometimes we need a simple and classy card. Here’s an idea featuring Wallpaper Art Stamp Set.

First, I stamped the images with Memento black ink. I then heat embossed the leaves with gold embossing powder. I stamped a sentiment onto a stripe of cardstock and glued it onto the card base. Lastly I added several gold sequins for additional shine.
