Let me talk with you a little about my experance at Altenew Education certification Program   or as we call it AECP . I was so lucky to be one of the earlier participants. There I found lots of amazing classes , that helped me to practice more in the cardmaking field. learning new techniques and mastering some old ones . For my personality _as i like this atmosphere of having a task and challenges was really attracting me _  so I found myelf in these clases .

I was super lucky to be accepted in a level 2 . But after I finished it . I thought may be it was better for me to be accepted in a level one . So I have to create cards for the classes in the level one . Especially after I was amazed with my colleagues unique cards . They  watch the class and they really come with a brilliant idea. I can’t talk about AECP  without sending my deep thanks to our leader Virginia. She was always there next to me , her kind word and support will be always appreciated. My level two gradations ptoject encouraged me a lot you  to start my youtube channal. And it was one of the thing that I wished to do many years ago . After that , i get brave and made my  first altenew workshop teatching it was definitely not that easy to me , but it was something that I am so proud with it , and I encouraged  to make by the course .


After I finished , I am still have this passion to see the other participant cards in the AECP amazing gallary . It will never stopped amazing me with the unique design there , I am so proud of them , and I am more proud to see that they grow day after day . Especially when I see some of my crafty friends and talents joining this journey. For them I am waiting for your graduation. And to see more of your amazing creations.


At our Altenew Educators supporting page we had a very nice close community that let us feel comfortable with  each other and to be with our lovely and amazing leader Virginia . We growing  with time and getting  happy with the  new members . There we get closer and to share our dreams , our future and our mistakes too.
Let’s star my post ..
We asked to use our favorite from altenew .. so in this post I choose one of dies , stamps , mini stamps , stencils,  techniques to create these card.  choosing favorite from the favorites was so hard . Simpley because I consider most of altenew products are my favorites ….

 in my first  card … i used One of my favorite altenew products is  altenew fantasy floral 3d die se sience they released it and it became one of favorite die cut . For that I am going to share one of my best cards that I made for  today post . This card I made with this die cut . In This card I only used a die cutting elements . First I die cut the altenew watercolor strips cover die   with a black cardstock then I placed it over a white cardstock the die cut the flower with altenew fantasy floral 3d die se a on a watercolor paper . I used   Altenew watercolor pan to color the flowers and the leaves to have this matching look I added extra red colors on the leaves and little of green and gold touch over the red bright flower , they are all  matching the gold splattered background and the gold contracts that I die cut it from altenew altenew signature words die and  I placed it over accete to have this exta dimension look.









For the second card I used one of my  favorite watercolor techniques.. for this watercolor   Altenew watercolor pan i was  waiting it for so long and I was excited to have the altenew inks colors in a watercolor pan. In this card I made one of my favorite coloring techniques it’s a glaxy type watercoloring or a starry night coloring. I used the blues and the black to create this background. I went inside the circle with lots of water then I let the pigment to deal with water to create this amazing background. To finish my card I stamped,  watercolored and die cut with  altenew ruffled flowers stamp and die bundle    the matching die cut this image from the I placed over a vellum that I die cut with the same matched die cut . Placing them double sided foam tape to have more dimensions.




For my third card that I would like to share for today post .. is one of  of my favorite build a flower stamp set which is altenew build a flower Cattleya . I remade a card similar to card I made before with a different color scheme. After I stamped the outer layer of this cattayia flower over the edge of the card base I die cut it partially with its matching die . Then i stamped the layers of these flower without the outer layer over a heavy cardstock using Altenew tea party ink pads



I made two copies to give more dimensions and details to the card. For the last layer of these stamping image I embossed them with clear embossing powder to be more promenant . For the background I did some ink blending using  Altenew sea shore inks pads . Then I added my favorite sentiment from one of my favorite stamping set altenew handpicked boutique stamp set .



For my fourth card I used one of my favorite embossing powder its   Altenew golden beach embossing powder . I like it with any type of card stock, acetate and the elegent vellum . For this card I made a very simple yet elegant card . I stamped the images from  altenew ruffled flowers stamp and die bundle with clear ink over a vellum then I applied the over them and with heat embossing tool it melt leaving an amazing effect. I want yo add extra contrast so I made some blending over the vellum with  Altenew tea party ink pads for the first time and I found it’s just perect. I found this card is so pretty and doesn’t want any extra details. Only I stamped the sentiment from Altenew celebration stamp .I placed it over a metalic white card stock .




For my fifth card , I used one of my favorite stamping set altenew floral art stamp  , and i was happy to see the logo for this hop having on it . So i couldn’t resist using them on my cards today . I did some watercoloring with Altenew watercolor pan  I added extra effects on the background playing with the watercolor pan. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set .then I placed them over a gray card stock that match the gray in the background.





For my sixth th card I used one of my favorite stencile Altenew mega rose stencil. I wanted to create a watercolor effect over it .. I blend many shades of yellow, pink , red , purple and greens altenew inks  over the stencil with blending tool . Then I went over them with watercolor brush with adding more coloring in some areas over the blending area .. leave your card to dry then  I added  the sentiment from  Altnew circular sentinels ..  you will have an amazing results at the end ..


For my seventh  card , i made a little small card using one of my favorite mini stamp from altenew altenew little one stamp die bundle ,  I stamped the small image over a background with gray ink then I did some blending for the background with . Then I die cut baby with altenew fine alphabet dies over a white glitter foam . I place the baby onesie and I die cute with the matched die cut . I stamped these dots with gray using the dots in the same stamp set  . I added a little bow from the matching die cut . over the Y .  It’s kind of cute and give a girlly touch .





For my last creation this super fast tag I used on it one of first and still my favorite Altenew Vintage flower becouse all the memoris that I had with it.
