Altenew Bursting With Creativity Release

| ,

I love dies, don’t you? They bring such an easy way to add texture, layers, or even main elements to a project. That’s why I’m glad you’re joining me to check out all the inspiration from this latest Altenew release! You should be arriving from Jennifer McGuire’s blog. If not, you can track back to the Altenew Card Blog to start at the beginning, or continue around until you loop back here.

bursting with creativity

Dies are also an easy way to feel extra creative! Layering dies do all the hard work of creating a 3D effect, background dies add easy texture, sentiment dies add just the right statement… This release has it all!

new product alert!

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention two NEW products! Double Sided Adhesive Sheets and Masking Paper! These are definitely two must-haves in your toolbox! They are approximately 8.5″ x 11″ sheets which adds a lot of versatility to the project. I had a chance to test the Double Sided Adhesive sheets and I really like the way they stick! I received them after I created today’s designs, but you’ll definitely see them in future projects and videos! Get them in a bundle and save!!

wood flower + leaves

All of my designs feature this stunning Wood Flower in shades of peach with gold leaves and accents. I know that we all love florals, but sometimes they end up looking like they’re floating on the page. Each of my designs will show you how to ground your flowers with dies!

In this design, I used the new Just Leaves dies in white woodgrain cardstock to add a background that helps to ground the main floral image. A few satin gold sequins finish off the panel along with a sentiment from Birch Forest. See how easy that is?

wood flower + dotted lines

Debossing dies add beautiful texture in a very subtle way. They’re also great for grounding florals. The new Dotted Lines Debossing Cover Die adds a radial pattern leaving a perfect kind of burst pattern behind the Wood Flower. Adding in a sentiment strip (from Geometric Landscape) also adds in a grounding point.

TIP: Don’t be afraid to let your sentiment overlap your main element – it helps join the design together!

wood flower + swirl motif

The Swirl Motif layering die set is dreamy! Two layers provide a shadow or base layer, and a detail/outline layer. They can be used separate or together. In this design, I used a white base to add some extra dimension behind the Wood Flowers. I chose to do the detail layer in gold glitter paper to coordinate with the gold glitter details in the flowers.

This time, there’s two flowers, but they still need some grounding, which the Swirl Motif provides. There’s no floating here! The simple sentiment was provided by the Checkerboard Stamp Set.

wood flower + linear crossroads

For my last design, I grounded the Wood Flower with the new Linear Crossroads die. This is going to be a well-used background texture for sure! It’s smaller size allows for a lot of versatility. It could be a central focal point on its own. It can pair with a large or small floral for a grounding element, or you could add in more than one or cut it up to extend on either side of an element.

This is the third die in this style from Altenew. Twigtastic is another interlocking style texture die – released today, and the Burlap texture die that was released a few months ago was a huge hit! You’ll definitely want to add Linear Crossroads to your stash!

  1. Your cards here are beautiful. That Wood flower is my favorite. Love the colors used and that extra sparkle. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Hi, Nicole -You gave a similar design four different purposes by changing the sentiments. Bravo! Way to get mileage!! Love your work and especially love that debossing die. Just ordered it. Could not take the risk that it would sell out – b/c I think it will.
    Holiday blessings on you and yours.

  3. I think my favorite is the one with the scroll design, but that may change in a moment. They are all beautiful and both so similar and so different. I love how you start with the same floral element and then change up the background and leaves to create items that are so different from each other.

  4. I really love the color combo for your cards. These are elegant and classy and I really like how just changing a few other elements give you a fresh new look. TFS

  5. Thanks for showing us how to use the same basic elements – flower in same color scheme – but make so many different looking cards by using the different background dies and a different sentiment on each. Thank you for sharing your talent with us. 🙂

  6. Hi Nicole. I love your cards especially the swirl motif. The colours you have chosen are all my faves. Thank you for sharing all of them with all of us! ❤️?
