Welcome to Altenew Educators Blog Hop! We are celebrating “Love and Friendship” and it’s been my great pleasure to get to know fellow Educators through our Facebook group. We have a few new Educators in our group since the last hop, so be sure to stop by their blogs and get to know them!
I have a set of 4 cards on the hop today featuring some older Altenew sets that you may have in your stash! Get ready for Altenew Build-A-Flower: Rose layering tips and no-line watercolor and stencil techniques.
Before we get started I’d like to sincerely thank Altenew for featuring me in the Designer Spotlight of their July newsletter. I am so blessed and honored to be part of the Altenew family and I cherish every moment.
If you missed the interview, you can access it here.
Altenew Educator Certification Program (AECP)
I owe much of my knowledge and success as a card maker, blogger, and YouTuber to the Altenew Educator Certification Program. If you’d like to learn more about my experience with the program, watch this short video. Read more about the AECP Program here.
Altenew Build-A-Flower: Rose
Frequently, I’m asked for advice on how to layer Altenew Build-A-Flower: Rose stamp set, specifically those little bits in the middle. What better opportunity to share these techniques than an Altenew Educator Hop!
I’d love to hear from you! Please let me know in the comments below if you feel more confident layering Altenew Build-A-Flower: Rose after watching the video tutorial.

No-Line Watercolor & Stencil Techniques
I enjoy playing with older sets, don’t you? The potted plants from the Indoor Garden Stamp Set are so delightful and welcoming. Learn how to use stamps to create an underpainting for your no-line watercolor projects.
Crisp Dye Inks
The plants were stamped with Bamboo and Dew Drops Crisp Dye Ink, outlines with Vanilla Cream, and pots with Milk Chocolate and Vanilla Cream.
Watercolor was done with Dew Drops, Bamboo, Charcoal Suit, Milk Chocolate, and Olive.
All of these colors are included in the Faber-Castell Polychromos 36 pencil set.
Warm Grey II, Warm Grey V, Light Yellow Glaze, Earth Green Yellowish, Cobalt Green, Light Green, Black, White, Walnut Brown, and Raw Umber.
Lastly, I used Altenew Watercolor Stripes Stencil to create ledges for the pots and ink blended over a vellum centerpiece on the last card.
That’s a wrap! I had a blast pulling out a bunch of older products and rediscovering their magic. Take a look at your stash and play around with these techniques. Let me know what you think down below and if you have any requests, I’m all ears!
