In the mood for colour - Altenew Educators Certification Program

I recently took the "In the mood for color" class over at Altenew Academy as part of my Educator Certification program that I am taking part in.

In the class I learnt about how certain colours reflect mood and emotion. This morning I was feeling really calm and as such chose to work with blue. I also felt strong and organised so thought it would be good to work with a shape that also reflects that feeling.

I couldn't wait to use my new Trigonometry Stamp Set and Tirgonometry Die set to create a card.  I love geometric cards as they are suitable or all genders and ages.  I wanted to make a modern looking cards so added some of the triangle shapes using the newly released Deep Blue Seas mini ink cubes (which are also available in Large ovals size too).  I used some silver embossing powder to add some shine in places. I die cut a couple of the Trigonometry die in to the stamped panel to add extra detail. I then used the "thanks" sentiment from Halftone circles Stamp Set to add my message.

I've never really thought to much about why I use the colours I do in my crafting but now when I look at my cards I can see what I was feeling at the time I crafted them.

Thank you popping by today, I'll be back soon with more crafty creations.

STAMPlorations Typografia ROMANTIQUE Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends, thanks for joining me today, you picked a great day to stop by as I am taking part in a blog hop to celebrate the newly released Romantique sentiments stamps that are part of the growing Typografia range from Shery Russ at STAMPlorations.

The stamps make a great focal point in there own right but are also fab to team up with some of your favourite images.

I have 3 projects to show how the stamps can be used, I will add links below to the stamps I used.

I really wanted the sentiment to stand out on this card so teamed it up with some simple sparkly sprinkles of Lindy's stamp gang.

This sentiment is so heartfelt. I added it to a die cut circle and teamed it up with a simple background which has a couple of black strips of card to tie the black text in to the overall look.

I had fun making this card, I tore around my stamped sentiment and inked he edges in pink totie in with my pink floral image. I added a piece of washi to the edge of my card for a fun modern feel.

I hope you've liked my project, it's not time to pop over to the  STAMPlorations blog and see what else has been made by the team.

Here's the links to the stamps I used in my projects.
