Altenew-DaisyBed 3D Embossing Folder-Slim Sentiment Die Set-Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan Set
 
All you need to add is a touch of gold. I used Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan set for that Midas Touch.Altenew-DaisyBed 3D Embossing Folder-Slim Sentiment Die Set-Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan Set-001
 
The Slim Sentiment Die was trimmed (omit "so much") and fit the card perfectly. Altenew-DaisyBed 3D Embossing Folder-Slim Sentiment Die Set-Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan Set-002
 
 The following 4 projects are featured in Altenew Card Blog.
 Feature products #1: Henna Square Stencil
Altenew-Henna Square Stencil-Mix & Match Mariposa Die Set-PAF Clematis -001

Whether you use a part of or the entire stencil, you will add some amazing patterns to your projects. If you love a delicate look without tons of effort, this stencil does not disappoint.

Altenew-Henna Square Stencil-Mix & Match Mariposa Die Set-PAF Clematis -002 
I started out with a piece of white cardstock. After positioning the stencil, I inked it up with various colors. I then gave it a spray with Iridescent Shimmer Ink Spray.

Not only does this spray give it a gorgeous shine, but it also tones down the colors a notch. I thought it was a tad too bright at first!Altenew-Henna Square Stencil-Mix & Match Mariposa Die Set-PAF Clematis -003 
 
 The sentiment from Paint-A-Flower: Clematis Outline Stamp Set was embossed onto the vellum paper. I topped it off with a butterfly from Mix & Match Mariposa Die Set  and Antique Gold Sequins.

If you have not yet tried color-layering stencils, this new Greenwood Flower Stencil Set will amaze you! It has two large flowers and you can customize your own colors!

In this card, I used two different colors for each flower. The leaves are so detailed and interesting thanks to the layering.

I then painted the dry-embossed surface with the Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan Set (Gold Pearl, Enchanted Gold, Rose Quartz, Aquamarine, and Jade) .

Altenew-Dreamy Tile 3D Embossing Folder-Tea For Two Stamp & Die Bundle 
The last card I share is a sweet and a cozy one.

Altenew-Dreamy Tile 3D Embossing Folder-Tea For Two Stamp & Die Bundle-002 
 
The Dreamy Tile 3D Embossing Folder reminds me of French country decor. I thought it was perfect to pair it up with Tea For Two Stamp & Die Bundle.

To add the blue color on the tile, I chose the mini ink cube (such as Deep Blue) and gently touched all of the surface. You can use a piece of hard craft foam for this purpose.

The tea set was stamped all in the same shades of blue to keep the theme cozy and cohesive. Now that you got a peek at this release, you must check out today's blog hop for more inspiration.
