TEXT-Savvy: Incorperate TEXT Into Your Design

 Hello friends!

Have your texted lately? More importantly, have you used TEXT as part of your stamped design?

Text Savvy_IG Hop 

Today's post is to remind and inspire you to use your sentiment set as part of your background and focal point. I am also participating in today's Altenew Educator Instagram Hop.

 Altenew-Checkerboard Stamp-InkyLily Stamp& Die&Stencil-Tall Alphabet Lower Case Stamp Set-001

I started out by creating a ink-blended background with Altenew Simple Frame Mask Stencil
With the Ink-blending Tool, you can ink up the background very easily.

With the Stencil in place, I then stamped the background with Tall Alpha Lowercase Stamp Set

With the that background, I arranged the sentiment die (stamped in Checkerboard Stamp and then die cut). Noticed that I stamped in assorted colors? Yum!

To add that extra touches, I added a piece of Glitter Card-stock and enamel dots.  You can start HERE in my IG stop. Do comment if you are hopping as you get a chance to win Altenew Gift Card!

Such a cool card. Love all the variety in the way you did the text on the card. Your design would make a great teen birthday card with a change in the sentiment

Soooo clever to use the letters over the stenciled, blended background for this lovely card. Love the addition of the black & white letters for contrast and the big beautiful bloom. Your special Virginia touches look amazing.
