Altenew Winter Essentials Stand-alone Dies Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

19 October 2020


Welcome to the Winter Essentials Blog Hop. If you have hopped over from Dana Joy's blog you are right on track. You can start the hop over on the Altenew Card Blog

This month's stand-alone dies release is such fun. There is something for everyone. Holiday dies, special occasions and florals are all present. It is so hard to choose. Check out the entire collection here.


My first creation is with the cute Layered Gift Tag - Onesie Die Set. It is so cute and perfect for the arrival of little ones. I wanted a simple but colourful statement card and chose a striped background from the Cheerful Meadows Paper Pack. I then cut out the onesie in some bright yellow as well as the second backing layer in black. 


 
To create extra contrast, I went around the edge of the onesie with a black fine liner. So simple and easy. 

My next two projects were made with the Layered Gift Tags - Heart Die Set. I love creating a layout and using my leftovers to make a card. I also use the same design elements and it makes the process so easy.  

How to:
  • Cut out hearts from patterned papers of your choice. I used papers from the A Love for Stripes A 6X6 paper pack and the Enjoy the Ride 6X6 paper pack. 
  • Use the leftover papers from the die-cutting as a stencil and stencil on some heart shape using an ink colour that matches your patterned papers. 
  • Choose a photo and place it on your layout. Add your hearts.
  • Pick out embellishments. I used die-cuts from the Enjoy the Ride Ephemera packs.
  • Add a title and some journaling.
  • For a finishing touch doodle around the edges and add some arrows. 



TIP: Let hearts flow off the layout. This will give a more balanced look.


For my card, I used my leftovers.
On some white cardstock, I layered two heart die-cuts and doodled around the outer edges onto the cardstock base. To break up the rounded lines, I added a thin strip of Fushia paper and stamped my sentiment on top. 

The final touch was a couple of enamel hearts. 

What has caught your eye in this release? How would you use it? I love hearing new creative ideas.
