Add a little dazzle and Altenew blog hop

altenew blog hop

It’s time for the  Add a Little Dazzle and Altenew Blog Hop!  We are so excited to be joining forces with this amazing company that has a beautiful line of stamps.  Join us today as both companies share some amazing inspiration using their stamps and Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheets.



 I had so much fun playing with both products that i made two cards for today's hop.


I used dodecagram for this card along with outrageously orange metal sheet along with gold and brushed bronze.
For a clean and simple card a LOT of work went into this.
Its kinda hard to explain so i have included these pictures.

I stamped the image into  my front panel and then cut out with a craft knife.
I then made a sort of template with the cut out shapes.
I embossed the image with the no more shims and a tool from the basic embossing tool kit.
Once the image was finished with the embossing i added it to the card to fill the space from the original cut out. 
Because its embossed it is raised up from the card.
I then stamped some of the smaller star images randomly in  a light orange ink and the sentiment in black.
I finished with some sequins and scored some lines on the top and right side.




I used Label love stamp set for this card.
I cut some stripes of metal sheets the size of the banner stamps and added them randomly onto my card front.
I used one piece the wrong way round and stamped the banner in black archival ink.
To enhance the sentiment more i etched it with a pokey tool.
i wanted to add some more detail so used the triangle from dodecagram  again i stamped in black archival ink then with my pokey tool etched some random patterns.
