Altenew | Insta Love

Hi there everyone!  I have my first Altenew Design Team project to share with you! I wanted to work with the new Halftone Circles Stamp Set on this layout, and combine it with hand-stitching.  I paired my stamps and stitching with the beautiful Reflection Scrapbook Kit, to get the look I wanted on today’s layout.

I love to create interesting backgrounds on my layouts, and the mix of circle sizes in the Halftone Circles stamp set, made it easy to modify the patterned paper I chose from the Reflection Scrapbook Kit.  The hand-stitching adds another layer of dimension and texture to the layout.

I have a video tutorial to go along with my layout, showing all of the steps I took to create the layout.  I’ll show you how I stamped my images and got the perfect hand-stitched circle around each one.  You can watch the video here or on the Altenew YouTube Channel.

Mixing your stamps with other techniques is a great way to create unique looks on your projects.  You could try this idea on a hand-made card, also.  If you’re working with embroidery floss for stitching with your stamps, look for colors that coordinate with the products and inks you are using on your project.  This will help to add a cohesive look to your project.
