How exciting to have a standalone die release this month from Altenew! 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.

fine flora

This month’s release is titled, Fine Flora, though, you’ll notice in my projects that I don’t have much flora going on! LOL! I was really drawn to the nesting and geometric cuts as well as the word dies – because, who doesn’t need another word die?!

I wanted to showcase some cards that have NO stamping. Though we are stampers, sometimes it’s fun to just play with paper and dies make that so easy! I hope you enjoy the unified purple color palette I chose for this trio. The addition of Gold Foil cardstock and a base of Spicy Yogurt cardstock really gives them all a rich, warm look.

soda top hello

Nesting dies can create some of the most stunning backgrounds, and the Soda Top Nesting Dies don’t disappoint! For this 5-minute card, I chose to create a gradient nesting pattern in shades of purple, with the bold Waterbrush Hello die in black. The single layer of Gold Foil gives just enough pop that no other embellishment is necessary for this CAS design!

golden hello

I’ve been thinking about making a card just like this one for a while now. The Waterbrush Hello die was the perfect die to make the vision come to life! As with the first card, cutting out the dies is what took longest. Gluing and trimming takes just a matter of minutes!

hanging garden thanks

The Hanging Garden dies are going to be a set I reach for often to add just the perfect floral touch to the background of many designs. I love that I was able to cut up the individual leaves to make a more full arrangement, framing the Apothecary Label die and Bold Thanks sentiment.

  3. You were obviously in a purple and gold mood when you made these great cards but why not since the colors go so well together. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I am in LOVE with this color combination!! Purple and yellow (or gold :D) are my favorite colors but I so rarely see them used together like this and am usually too timid to try it myself. But you have inspired me! These cards all just look so effortlessly elegant. Thank you for sharing your beautiful designs with all of us!!

  9. This is a fabulous collection of dies. I love seeing designs that are easy, yet classically beautiful, as are these two cards.

  10. I do really love how you used the dies all over the top of a note card for a background effect!! I love this idea and keep forgetting to do to it with my word dies!!

  15. LOVE these cards, Nicole! These would be perfect when my stampin’ mojo just isn’t working on a particular day!! Beautiful color palette and card designs.

  16. Love these cards and love these stand-alone dies. I have to admit I didn’t take much notice of the Soda Top dies originally. After seeing your first card I realize how versatile they can be — they make a wonderful background.

  17. Beautiful cards, simple but great impact. Can’t decide if I like the Golden Hello or Hanging Garden card best….

  23. Beautiful cards Nicole! Enjoyed your video too!! I’ve noticed your name quite a bit recently, your cards are catching my eye increasingly- so I stopped by. Thank you, Denise

  24. Your cards turned out beautifully. I really like the geometric design on your first card, and the card with all the hello’s on it. That one is really unique. The gold foil at such a touch to the card that you used it on. Very pretty.

    Reply
  25. Fabulous cards! I don’t intentionally use just dies for a card but I have and I will give your technique a try.
