Altenew Mini Delight: You’re a Classic! Instagram Hop

Today I’m excited to be joining in Altenew’s Blog Hop for the release of the Mini Delight: You’re a Classic stamp set! LOL – I have to admit that this is from my era. The photo is of a 1967 Pontiac GTO. My hubby and I started dating in 1967. So this card is in his honor! 😎

Classic cars always remind me of chrome and black & white checkerboard garage floors, so that was my inspiration for my card. See below to find out how I interpreted my vision!

There is also an Altenew Giveaway with this hop. Check out my Instagram post (@sandespoema) for the details!


  • For the background panel I used the Waffled Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder on shiny silver cardstock.
  • I cut the next background layer from black cardstock, and the black & white grid is from the Essential Black & White Paper Pack.
  • I then stamped the card and all of its elements onto white cardstock using Crisp Dye Inks & a silver gel pen to add the chrome.
  • I also stamped the “you are a” sentiment from a stamp in my stash using Obsidian Black Pigment Ink.
  • I die cut the car panel & a black background panel using the Fine Frames Diamond Dies.
  • I die cut the included “Classic” sentiment from black cardstock and coated it with Glossy Accents to make it look like shiny plastic.
  • I adhered the different layers together with double-sided tape and Foam Tape.
  • Finally I added red pearls as embellishments.
