Altenew June 2023 Stamps, Dies, Stencils, and More Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in Total Prizes!)

 Hello friends!

Warning: Heavy photo post

 
Welcome to Altenew June 2023 Release Blog Hop! I am super excited to share 3 projects with you. If you arrive from the blog of Emily Midget, you are in the right place!

 


Altenew-Embellishment Star Die-Plum Blossom Layering Die-Golden sunshine Glitter Cardstock
 
 This Plum Blossom Die truly is lovely and easy to assemble.

For the background, I inked up the Embellishment Star Die with the gradient effect.

 For the accents and highlight, I chose gold color. I have one confession to make though......!

The tiny strip of glitter paper on top? It was to "cover up" the uneven cut of the Embellishment Star Die. I thought that was a brilliant move! Haha. I actually love the tiny shiny accent of that glitter strip paper!
   
 

Altenew-Bird of the Mountain Die Set-Exuberant Paper Pack-Gradient Cardstock Set - Summer Afternoon -001
 
If you are a bird lover, this Bird of the Mountains will delight you. I  am having so much fun using various colors/kinds of paper to create with this bird die.

 I chose Gradient Cardstock Set (Summer Afternoon)    for the body of the bird. This really makes layering for color choices much easier.

I basically created a puzzle frame and put the birdie back to fit within the frame. You likely can't see the acetate for this card. But that was what I used for the layering.

 The Orange Blossom Die Set is, to my surprise, easy to color and layer.

The Ornate Nesting Die Set has 6 sizes of dies. I used the two largest dies to create a frame. That's the beauty of this shape die. You can have endless ways of layering and die-cutting.

What pretty cards. I love how you used the frame to draw attention to the image of the fruit, and the stripes really accent the bird!

Bobby said...

Fabulous cards that show off the release beautifully.

Samantha Pfrimmer said...

I love all 3 of your cards, but there is something so incredibly charming about your bird of the mountain card!

I LOVE the orange blossoms and bird! Beautiful cards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Liz O. said...

Wonderful designs Virginia! ๐Ÿคฉ the color combo! Love all of your cards, but must say my favorite is the first one, I like the clever use of the Embellishment Star die instead of a trellis and those pretty plum blosssoms. Thanks for the inspiration! Have a wonderful weekend!

Chaos & Happiness said...

The copper cardstock! Gorgeous. It works so well with the oranges and the way you color blended them.
I love the yellow and orange you used on the bird and how it tied in perfectly with the yellow striped paper.
The Plum Blossoms card has to be my favorite of your cards. Happy accidents make for beautiful works of art. The glitter strip is perfect for it! The gradient blending on the die cut is gorgeous! Thank you for all of your inspiration!

Geri S said...

Pretty cards! Love the peachy colours you used for the Plum Blossoms and the use of the 'star die' as a backdrop. The use of the copper ornate die to showcase the orange blossoms was a great choice.

Your cards are beautiful! I love how you ink blended the star die- great idea to add the flowers on top, too!

Linda BL said...

All three cards are gorgeous. The glitter strip may have been to cover up a problem, but looks like it should go there. The orange blossom card is so pretty with the ornate gold frame. Really like how the orange colors go with the copper.

The plum blossom is simple and lovely. I could see that done in many colors. Beautiful cards!

Love your use of oranges,the gorgeous blending on the first card (yes the "cover up" really is a nice addition). I'm not an orange color fan but each of these cards is wonderful and makes the color sing.
