Altenew as Easy as ABC with Therese Calvird

An amazing month of April started with Altenew class in Melbourne with Tasnim and Therese. Finally I got to meet them in person.

Now coming to my second last lesson for AECP. For this lesson I took Therese Calvird class at the Academy called Easy as ABC. 

The Lesson was all about to make the best use of your Alphabet stamp and Dies. With the help of Therese Video here is what I have created.

For this card I have used Botanical You stamp set. And for making the best use of this stamp, I have used all the sentiments which were in this stamp set. Created my background with heat embossing. I have also used the layering word "you"  with heat embossing.

After finishing my heat embossing I have used Picket fence Blending brush to do my background . I have used the ink pads from Altenew which are lagoon, Volcano lake, and Mountain Mist.

After completing I die cut out my word 'You' from the base base cardstock as well as the leafy YOU with the help of the coordinating dies. I mounted the leafy YOU with the foam to give extra dimensions so that they look like popped out from the base.  

To finish my card I added a strip of sentiment heat embossed again on a black strip.

Hoping to finish my last lessons soon with my AECP.



  1. Hello Neha! Your project is nicely done! I love the white-embossing! The inking is also quite good. I would love to see that you step outside of your comfort zone and try more variation in the shades of colors and perhaps apply some more contrast and gradient effect in this! I am so glad that you enter your beautiful work in Altenew AECP assignment Gallery. Awesome details and design! Super work!

  2. Isn't Therese an amazing teacher! I am glad you learned and applied the techniques she shared. I love your card and it looks excellent. But I read Virginia's comment above and she is absolutely right. In order for you to grow, please follow her advice :)
    I am so glad that you entered your beautiful work in the AECP assignment Gallery. Thank you for sharing your creative process! Fabulous job!
