Altenew June 2019 Stand-alone Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello friends!
Warning: Super-heavy photo post
Welcome to Altenew Stand-alone Die Release Blog Hop!
I am super excited to share a few DIE-namite projects with you.
If you arrive from the blog of Jaycee Gaspar, you are in the right place! All the details about this blog hop, please visit Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog

First up, it is my favorite die of this release...  it has MY name on it!

1. Virginia Rose 3D Die
Altenew-Virginia Rose 3D Die-Virginia #1

First of all, the Virginia Rose is the bomb! I created my own color palette by using Watercolor Brush Markers. It was not difficult to assemble the rose once you get to know the pieces.

Extra products used: Illusion Spiral Stencil, Summer Garden Paper Pack 6x6 , Fancy Greetings
Altenew-Virginia Rose3D Die-Virginia #2

It is very effective to use just part of the stencil.

I use only the upper portion for the flower and I love how this turned out.

2. Nesting Label Dies, Star Flowers Pop Up Die
Altenew-NestingLabelDies-StarFlowers PopUp Die-Virginia#1

First of all, I am super excited about the nesting Label dies.
They are fun, easy and versatile! I am glad that Altenew has its own nesting dies.

I colored each piece in various colors and did the inlaid die-cutting.
Literally, I nested each piece and you've got an very impactful focal point.

Wait...the Star Flower Pop Up Die stole the show!

Aren't they beautiful with the partially-cut petals?

3. Color Wheel Die This large circle die is absolutely amazing!

You may have seen other versions with this die in this blog hop.
You can simply create your on color wheel with your inks! How cool is that?

Altenew-DelicateMandalaDie-Virginia#2-001

I used half of the Color Wheel and created a colorful card. Love that Sentiment Strips Stamp Set!

4. Delicate Mandala Die

  Altenew-DelicateMandalaDie-Virginia#1

This largest die is absolutely exquisite!
I made the die cut with the pattern paper from "Live Your Dream" Paper Collection.

Altenew-DelicateMandalaDie-Virginia#2
I then topped it off with a small gold-embossed vellum frame (the Fancy Frame Die).

Altenew-DelicateMandalaDie-Virginia#3

The card was completed with sentiment, enamel dots and splatter!
