It is an exciting time to have start the new year with Altenew's 1st new release in 2018.
Well, that time is HERE! I am honored to be part of our Altenew Card Design Team and so glad that you stop by to join the fun hop. For all the details about this release, please visit Altenew Card Blog and Altenew Scrapbooking Blog.
If you arrive from the incredible Jennifer McGuire's Blog, you are in the right place (welcome to my humble blog!!). If not, please come join the inspiration and fun. ...and perhaps win a prize, too!
Let's get right to it, shall we?
My first card features this gorgeous sentiment die "Thinking of You".
I took advantage of the pattern paper and made the die cut. Once I cut out the top layer, I stacked two more underneath to add some depth and interest.
You can see the Gold Foil paper under the die as the paper adds a touch of elegance .
My next project feature the Watercolor Stripe Cover Die.
It is really an awesome one as you can use it however you like-be it graphic, floral or even masculine.
This card was super easy to create. By using Altenew's Spray Mist (see links at the end of this post), I can easily create a colorful paper.
I had fun stamping/die cutting Frosted Garden in Grey and then I tucked the flowers under the Watercolor cover die.
My 3rd (also last) card was created with Creative Edge Border Lace Die.
Obviously, you can use this die just for borders.....
To take it up a notch, I incorporated it with Halftone Heart Die and made two hearts with the lace border!
To dress up the heart, I applied a touch of Gold Glitter Tape and popped one heart up and that's it!
I also loved the ink-blending on the lacy borders. It's a perfect way to use all kinds of you that you have in your stash.
Hopefully, these 3 cards give you some inspiration and ideas with these amazing Altenew dies. I can't get enough of that Creative Edge Border Lace Die and will share another project in my next post.
