Engineers Rule background

by Lilith Eeckels

Hello Altenew fans and welcome to another day of inspiration. Today I'm sharing a layout that I created with the Engineers rule Stamp set. This is such a fun stamp set and will work well on cards and on layouts. Some say it is perfect for boys but I think it is perfect for girls and boys, especially those who are or want to be engineers.

Now, in my case I'll be using it to make a layout of one of my boys as I have 4 of them. It isn't a layout with an engineering theme just one about my youngest son who just brightens our lives.



  1. Start stamping a background. I used the 11100000111 stamp and stamped it several times in the center and repeated it once on the top border and once on the bottom of the left border to create flow. The ink used is Limestone from the Rock collection.
  2. Then add some details using Permanent Black ink. Add some color with the layers that come with some of the stamps. I used a hint of yellow and blue. (Fresh Lemon Crisp Ink and Dusk Crisp Ink)
  3. Add your photo and pick a title
  4. Instead of embellishments use the tiny stamps on the set. I just love those little screws and even though they are really small the detail is amazing.

This layout was so easy to make and I think it took me all in all 15 minutes and I only used stamps, white cardstock some ink and one patterned paper from the 6×6 Reflection paper pad.

If you have any fabulous ideas with this set please do share. I'm always looking for new techniques and ideas.

Have a lovely day and HAPPY SCRAPPING.

This is a really cool layout! I love seeing the sets in action because I get new ideas on how to use them! More than once I have gone from not really liking a set but changing my mind after this type of post! TFS!
