Take 2 with Therese: Stamp Focus: Rosy Outlook + Video!

by Therese Calvird

Hi, it’s Therese and I am back with another edition of Take 2 with Therese.

Today, I am sharing two cards using Altenew’s Rosy Outlook Stamp Set.

Altenew - Rosy Outlook - Graph Die Cut Tape - Take 2 with Therese (card video) (1) copy

I started by adding some colors using Artist Markers to some Graph Die Cut Tape (as well as creating a background that you can see in the video linked below).

The flowers are really easy to stamp layer and I used the Cherry Blossom and Green Fields Ink to do this.

I also added some Pure White Ink Spray and a sentiment from the Precious Peony Stamp Set.

Onto my second card now and this one has a Bold Alphabet Die sentiment with a sub-sentiment stamped on top from the Dot Botanicals Stamp Set.

I also added a small Dark Gray Cardstock border and some jewels.

Love both of these and they are beautiful. Thank goodness for Take Two with Therese! This series is always fun and informative! The first card design gave me an idea for a card design I’ve been struggling with and now I know what to do! :)

I love Altenew stamps and dies. I hear on video’s a lot that “these are easy to line up” but I always struggle with aligning them no matter who makes them. Must be me. Even looking at the packaging doesn’t really help me. ugh. BTW, I’m loving the tape! How do they come up with this stuff?

Hi Maxine, I have found that if I struggle with the ‘lining’ up of the layers that I just practice and it just seems to click in the end lol. I would suggest using a stamp positioning tool and making multiples of the same flower at once in production line style (even have a ‘practice’ one to make sure you are happy with the layers before committing). I also have improved in my layers since I started being more specific about following the instructions on the packaging. There are also instruction videos available for many of the flowers too, so these may give you some help. Other tricks I use are to have a pencil in a similar colour to fill in any gaps that I may have missed. I hope these tips may help. Crafty hugs, Therese
