Altenew June 2020 Stand-alone Dies Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

June 17, 2020

Hi Friends!

Welcome to the the blog hop celebrating the latest Altenew Release June 2020 Fine Flora Stand Alone Dies Release!

Thank you for joining me and the rest of the team and guests! You’ve joined me here from Svitlana Shayevich‘s blog and if you would like to start from the beginning, you can visit Altenew’s blog for the full details on the release plus giveaways!

I adore dies as there are so many ways to use them and techniques are are easy to replicate! This release of stand alone dies are full of Altenew’s signature florals and glorious geometric designs which had me swooning when I saw the products.

Here is an overview of the full release, for your drooling pleasure:

I am a sucker for sentiment dies, and I love having them pre-cut and ready to go if I need to quickly add that perfect finishing touch to a project. Three of my cards were finished off using the Bold Thanks Die, which you can use in multiple ways! I went on a die-cutting spree and made multiples to use on other projects. Can you see my happy mess in the background?

This would be a perfect way to use up all those small scraps of cardstock that you keep and just can’t bear to throw them away. Or is that just me!?

For my first card, I cut some white card stock with the Spring Roses Die Set several times and glued them down with a clear matte drying glue on a blank A2 cream textured card blank. I loved how soft and feminine the card turned out and i thought that it would be perfect to use in wedding projects. I can easily see myself using this at every chance I get: on a card, a layout, for mixed media collage and even use it for home decor.

I was quite happy with how this card turned out and die-cutting and gluing down all those pieces was worth it in the end. Would you believe me if I said that die-cutting is like meditation for me? It takes all the thinking out of the process for you, and when I feel like I’m in a creative slump: I die-cut like a crazy person.

The repetitive process always puts me in a zen-like state and I often get my best project ideas when I am doing lots of die-cutting. I had reservations about putting the rainbow-like Bold Thanks Die on a neutral background, but I ended up liking the finished piece and how the soft florals contrasted against the bold colourful sentiment.

I think I was definitely feeling neutrals and gold when I was making these cards. For this card, I die cut a window into a white card stock panel using the Leafy Border Die. I added for subtle glitter gold card stock behind the window and added it to a black blank card.

To finish the card off I used the Bold Thanks Die again to create the sentiment. I love that the die comes as set of two so that I can add a shadow behind the text!

For this card, I did some in-lay die cutting as I had a whole bunch of letters left from my die-cutting marathon. Before starting, I added some black splatters on two of the opposite corners of my card stock piece. I simple cut the letters part of the Bold Thanks Die into a white piece of card stock (and thankfully remembered to keep the inner part of the “A”).

I first glued a scrap piece of card stock on the back of the letters and glued down the rainbow letters, just like a jigsaw puzzle. I kept the card as is and added it to a grey card blank.

This card using the Waterbrush Hello Die and Gem Frame Die was my favourite of the four cards that I made. I don’t know about you guys, but it really gives me art deco vibes with the black geometric frames and the gold die cut sentiment.

This card was so simple to put together, and the products were so beautiful that I decided to keep the card as is and let them shine.

Here is a an overview of all the four cards that I made:

  • Annette Reed

    June 22, 2020 at 22:58

    These are all very pretty. Believe it or not, I think my favorite is the thanks with the black spatters. I would have never thought that that kind of design would be so fantastic. With the colors of the letters, though, and that splash of black I just love it (even more than the one with the glitter lol-my favorite thing in the world). Wonderful job!
