3 Ways with Altenew's One day at a time stamp set

So yesterday was April fools day and it turns out the joke was on me as I forgot to get my 3 ways with post done in time, opsy daisy. Never fear though, as today I have it all sorted and ready to share.

For this weeks 3 ways with I thought I would focus on the One day at a time stamp set from Altenew.

I have 3 cards to share, so lets get started;

Elongating a design

The patterns on the main image stamps in the One day at a time stamp set are perfect for adding interesting back drops to your projects, but they are square stamps and if you are wanting a rectangle background you need to elongate the design by stamping twice.

I started by stamping and masking my flower and foliage using the Wall Paper art stamp set, I then over stamped using one of the patterns making sure that the end of the pattern lied within my masked area, this means that when you stamp the next part of the pattern your joint will not be visible.

I made sure that my flower leaned out of the patterned area, this creates added interest, I used a fine liner pen to add a border around my design and stamped a sentiment below. The result is clean and simple.

Stamp kissing

Have you ever tried stamp kissing? No I don't mean getting up close and personal with your stamps, lol I mean using a pattern stamp to add texture to a solid stamp.

To do this I used the large solid triangle from the Trigonometry stamp set, I inked it up using one of the 3 shades of teal listed below and then placed it onto one of the marble stamps, they kissed. This removes some of the ink and creates a pattern on the solid stamp.  I then stamp the solid stamp onto my card panel. I did this several times in 3 shades of teal.  I also used a small outline triangle and some metallic silver ink to stamp in some of the open areas on my card.

My sentiment comes from the One day at a time stamp set, I used a combination of Lagoon ink and Silver Embossing powder.

Piecing together a background

The stamps in the One day at a time set aren't big enough to cover a background in one go, so you need to get creative with your arrangement to make a full panel.

On this card I stamped the image 3 times, I tried to use areas of the stamp that looked most alike to make my joints.  I wanted a modern look so chose to use triangles of gold and grey card on my card to make a geometric pattern.  My sentiment was created with the Mega Hello die.
