Altenew Card Kit/Layering Dies Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello friends!
This is my 2nd post for the day. Please click here for Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
It's 8th birthday celebration, you don't want to miss it!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Warning: SUPER photo-heavy post
I am excited to share another super exciting event over Altenew.
 In this release, we are sharing projects with the new CARD KIT and LAYERING DIES.
If you come from my talented team mate Erum Tasneem, you are in the right place. There are so much inspiration that you do not want to miss this hop.
s


  1. Thirty four cardstock die cuts
  2. Six 8.5x11 inch cardstock (Made in UK)
  3. Forty eight 6x6 inch pattern paper sheets (two of each design)
  4. Two alphabet sticker sheets
  5. 12 wood veneer frames
  6. 6x8 inch photopolymer clear stamp set (Made in USA)
  7. One gold glitter tape
  8. Frame die, hearts and stars die
  9. Enamel dots and hearts (4x6 inch sheet)

Let's get right to the Card Kit
The pattern paper in the card kit are unbelievably beautiful.
Altenew_Cardkit_Virginia#2 

I added the Gold Glitter Tape to the paper cut out  and I love the effect it gives!

Altenew_Cardkit_Virginia#1

No stamping involved with this set of world map cards!

Altenew_Cardkit_Virginia#3

 Of course, the stamp set and die alone are totally worth getting the card kit!

Altenew_Cardkit_Virginia#4

Honestly, I can't stop making card sets as they are so easy to use and the pattern paper are absolutely amazing. Next we are seeing Layering Dies! The layering dies come with two plates.

How about the Cityscape Layering Die A
and Cityscape Layering Die B?

Altenew_Layered CityScape_VirigniaLu#2  

Next we are seeing the ornate layering dies 
( Layered Floral Cover Die A and Layered Floral Cover Die B)

ss

I also used the new Inline Alpha Die.
 

Altenew_Layered Floral_VirginiaLu#1

I only needed to add ink colors inner layer and that is it! The woodgrain paper you see is "Cherry Wood" that  Altenew carries in their shop.


Altenew_Layered Floral_VirginiaLu#2

Last but certainly not the least....
Medallion Cover Die A and Medallion Cover Die B.
ss
You guessed it, they are much like the Medallion Stencil A and B.
Altenew_LayeredMedallion (A+B)_VirginiaLu#1

The great thing about the Medallion Cover Die A and Medallion Cover Die B. is that you CAN make your own stencil if you get the dies! All you need is some sturdy acetate or just any card stock! I inked up all the bright colors with Altenew Inks. TheGold Foil Paper makes the design even more festive! This is a wedding card that gives you a happy feeling!
The sentiment is from Beautiful Lady Stamp Set ( love the font in that set!).
