Altenew: CAS Storytelling Cards

by May Park-

Happy Monday! Hope you had a great weekend! Today I have a couple of simple cards that I made with the Figure Effects stamp set from Altenew. Here are what I came up with:


I started by drawing a horizontal line using a black pen on the card front. Then I stamped the figure image in black, and I created a hole image in two shades of red using a masking technique. Next, I stamped the heart images to look like coming out of the hole.

Can you guess the story I made up? He is trying to protect his love(hearts) from losing/leaking it(them) by blocking up the hole with a rock. Does it make a sense to you? *wink* To support my little scene, I stamped several sentiments in rows as a passage from a storybook.


I created my own background for the next card using figures along with tiny images from Figure Effects. As you see above, I masked off each edge of the card front using sticky notes to enhance the background. I finished off the card with the sentiment from Label Love stamp set.

Hope you loved seeing my cards and got some inspiration. Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy crafting!
