AECP:: Seasonal Scene Building


I'm back today with another card for the Altenew Educator Certification Program, this entry is for the Seasonal Scene Building online card class.

When I was scrolling through my bin of Altenew stamps with how to create a scene with skills taught in the class in mind, the branch from Vintage Flowers popped out at me. I decided to create a branch of lovely cherry blossoms that can be seen blowing in the wind outside a window. A window card was one of the ideas that Nicole, the instructor, taught in the class, along with great tips on masking and coloring!


I started by creating my branch with flowers, using the Vintage Flowers Stamps and inks from the Coffee Break, Tropical Forest, Red Sunset packs. I inked the edges of the panel with blue inks from Glacier Caves. I then added the Adore Die from Catherine Pooler Designs on top of the panel, as it created the look of a window. This was then mounted to a brown card base. I finished the card with a stamped sentiment from Sentiment Strips.


There were more fabulous tips and tricks in this class as well. A couple of takeaways that I had is powerful use of borders and to keep things fairly simple as to not overwhelm the scene. I really think I was successful in creating a scene, with keeping the window frame and border in neutral colors and letting the pretty blossoms shine.

I am almost finished showcasing cards I created for Level One of the Altenew Educator Certification Program, I can't wait to show the rest!
