Altenew Summer Adventure Stand-alone Dies Collection Release Blog Hop & Giveaway

Welcome everyone! I’m excited to be joining Altenew in a blog hop featuring their latest die release!

My first card features the Peeking Leaves Cover Die which can be used for any occasion. I’m all about dies that are super versatile and this is certainly one of them!

I lightly ink blended Forest Glades and Grass Field inks using a blending brush. I started at one of the card and faded off into the white of the card.

I stamped a sentiment from the Fancy Greetings set using the Obsidian Pigment Ink.

The Peeking Leaves Cover Plate is die cut from Gold Holographic cardstock and added to the front of the card with liquid glue. So simply yet really packs a punch!

Next we have the Abstract Seascape Slim Cover Die. This creates a mini slim line card which I’m really into making lately.

For this card, I ink blended various pieces of the scenes. I die cut the frame from white cardstock and added it to a white card base. Then I die cut inlay my blended pieces to create a colorful scene.

I finished this card off with a simple sentiment from the All About You Word Die set die cut from gold glitter paper.

My final card to share today is the Abstract Landscape Cover Die. I repeated steps similar to the ones above by ink blending and doing an inlay technique.

I wanted a bold greeting on this one so I stamped the Hello from Mega Label Love stamp set in Obsidian Pigment Ink, trimmed down and added to the front with foam squares.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration. Thank you so much for stopping by today.
