Pretty in Pink, with Maresa







Altenew is my continuing obsession.  Each time we get in a new order of these fabulous stamps, I always find one or two new "favourites".  

This class features great tips and tricks for stamp and die aligning, picking palettes for colour layering and will give boost your confidence if you haven't quite decided to take the leap into multi-layer stamping.  No colouring is involved, so don't be afraid! :)

These cards can be easily adapted to any occasion, and a variety of sentiments will be provided. Alternately, you can leave the sentiments blank and stamp them to suit as the need arises.
