Stretching the Altenew stash!

by Aimes


It's Aimes here today sharing a card with you that features a fun way to use a small stamp in a different way to create a  stylish border. Can you guess which set the mini stamp is from?


Believe it or not, the white heat-embossed border above and below the sentiment is actually the end of the friendship bracelet from the stamp set, Modern Beadwork! I always love finding a new use for a stamp – stretching your stash gives you bonus points for a card IMHO! ;)


The white, black and gold colour scheme is heavily influenced by our wedding day last year. This was our chosen colour scheme and Mr Gray and I are coming up to celebrating our first anniversary this weekend. I've been busy reminiscing and finally getting the wedding pictures on the wall. I don't think I'll ever tire of this elegant combo.

hello angle

I'm awarding myself double bonus points for stretching the Altenew stash even further by showing that you can use the fab Halftone Hello die separately from the co-ordinating stamp set.

hello close

Well that's all from me today. Are you heading to CHA at all? Don't forget to stop by Altenew at booth 2212 and say hello! I wish I could be there myself but I have an special anniversary to celebrate. Don't tell Mr Gray, but I'll be sneaking a peek at CHA on Facebook and Instagram to check it all out. ;)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

I love the elegance of this gard and I can imagine your wedding was very beautiful. Happy Anniversary (we’re coming up on our 32nd Anniversary this June!)(

Thanks, Vicki and congrats on your anniversary this year! We’ve actually been together for 15 years so it seems strange to start from 1 again LOL!

It’ll be worth the wait, Beth! So many gorgeous products to choose from, right?! ;)
