Repeat Stamping to Create a Background

Hello, Crafters! I've started the Altenew Educator Certification Program. I am very excited to be on this journey. There are so many classes and techniques to perfect that I just want to do them all! I am so pumped up for this journey!

Ok, I've calmed down a bit. I've come back to normal. Today I am sharing the first card I am submitting for approval for the program. It is a simple card based on lesson 2 of the Clean and Simple Course. The class focuses on using just a few design elements to make a wonderfully simple, yet elegant card. You use this element repeatedly to make a background. Let's jump in:

1. Start I choose the Morning Glory Set for this card. Using the outline stamp,  I started in the middle with my second to darkest purple, Deep Iris

2. Repeat Then I stamped the flowers diagonally across the card front following the direction I already set up in the first step. I stamped two rows with Deep Iris, one row with Midnight Violet then went above the Deep Iris with two rows of Lavender Fields and finished off in the upper left hand corner with Soft Lilac. I alternated the direction of the flowers with each row. Look closely to see that the stamens are pointing in different directions.

3. Sentiment Using Versamark I stamped the words "For" and "Love" on to some black card stock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder from Ranger. I cut around it with my Fiskars 9" bypass trimmer but I probably could have used scissors just as well. I mounted the sentiment on foam tape then carefully placed it down where I wanted it on the card.
