Altenew/Add a Little Dazzle blog hop!


Good morning! Today Altenew is hopping along with Add a Little Dazzle.  They carry metal sheets, and it was fun to die cut them for my projects!

 Here's my first card, featuring the Black Diamond metal sheet (which I die cut into the letters), and a tiny little triangle stamp from the Simple Shapes set.


I got the idea for the pattern from the Moxie Fab World Colorful Clock challenge.


For each square, I used 2 different ink colors- a light and a dark.  The darkest color stamped in the bottom right, it's 2nd generation stamped on the opposite diagonal.  The lighter color was stamped on the bottom left, and it's 2nd generation opposite.  

I'm sure people are going to ask what inks I used, so here they are!  Mostly Hero Arts, but some Simon Says Stamp:


My second card uses a silver metal sheet that I die cut and adhered over a card base colored with Distress Inks.  The sentiment (from Sentiments and Quotes) was embossed in white on a black strip of cardstock.



I love this card!! :)
