a wondrous world

A wondrous world is filled with things that delight the senses – texture, color, shape… this release has all of that and more! Stencils, embossing folders, dies, and embellishments. There’s a little something for everyone!

celebrate – collage style

I’m continuing on with my chosen color combo for the month – Ruby Red, Coral Bliss, Sunkissed & Lagoon, so you’ll be seeing variations on this combo throughout my projects. This first one is a collage of all sorts of great new products from this month, plus an amazing bonus detail!

You should notice the Red Sunset slim washi tape from earlier this month – and, maybe you see the Foiled Marble washi? We’ll talk about that in a minute.

In the forefront, is the new Fancy Celebrate die – add this to your collection of “fancy” dies – which now includes, Celebrate, For You, Peace, Thanks and Hello! The little floral stems behind are from the new Branches and Berries die set, and the enamel dots are from the new Tea Party collection.

Ok, so back to that gorgeous frame… You can see it even better here in the closeup. I covered a piece of white cardstock in the Foiled Marble washi, then, diecut it with the Sweet Friend die, which coordinates with the new Baroque Frame 3D embossing folder. I took the diecut and matched it up to the frame in the embossing folder and ran it through my machine. It is simply stunning and looks like a real marble frame!

rainbow floral lace

The Floral Lace die will make slimline cards effortless! There are so many ways you can use the die, but I opted for a pretty simple (but stunning) example. I created a rainbow smooshed background on some watercolor cardstock and then diecut the Floral Lace die.

Instead of placing it right on the card base, I diecut a rectangle from the Nesting Slim Rectangle die set to pop it up. I added in a sentiment from Label Love and then added coordinating enamel dots from the new Tea Party and Green Meadows enamel dots sets.

joyful tulips

Why are these tulips so joyful? Well, that’s simple! It’s because they were sooooooo EASY to make!! All you need is the Tulip 3D Embossing Folder, some inks (I used Ruby Red and Sunkissed) and blending brushes. You can have this look in literally a matter of minutes!

I finished off the card with a little watercolor experiment using the Rows of Squares 3D embossing folder, sentiment label from Best Sentiments and some Tea Party enamel dots.

smooshed modern squares

The Modern Squares 3D Embossing Folder is soooooo amazing! It has amazing depth in all of those little stacked pyramids! The bonus is that you can use it either way – where the pyramids build, or where they sink down. That’s what I did here!

The main panel with the Lagoon watercolor smooshed on it has the pyramids building. Then, I took another piece of embossed watercolor cardstock and added both Sunkissed and Ruby Red to the side where the pyramids sink down. I cut out a whole bunch of the squares and then adhered them to the card. You can see in the detail photo below how cool they look, stacked opposite and popping off the page! A simple sentiment from Best Sentiments is the perfect finishing touch!

  1. Amazing designs Nicole! Love the new Tulip embossing folder and the Florar Lace die. The color combo is striking, thanks for the inspiration!

    • Love these cards, especially the modern squares embossing folder…the way you popped up some of the squares to make even more depth is amazing! Thanks for the tutorial!!

  2. My favorite is the tulip card. I am so ready for spring and you captured that beautifully. Thanks for sharing such interesting techniques. I can’t wait to try them.

  3. Your ‘joyful tulips’ card looks so warm and nice…reminds me of spring …and your collage style card seems like it belongs to ‘mixed media’ rather than a card

  4. Using the marble washi tape for the frame was perfect. Love that ,look. I forget to use my washi tape in that fashion. Thanks for the reminder.

  5. I love all of the cards. Just like last month, the washi tape was already sold out when I placed my order. Rats!! I really love the 3D embossing folders.

  6. I love the oranges and blue in the frame. Great video today as well, I am looking forward to using these geometric embossing folders

  7. Wonderful cards. I love the washi tape on the first one. Love the sentiment on top of the colors of squares also. They are all lovely and so detailed.

  8. Dang girl!! You have some mad skills!!! I love your color combo for the month and THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for making that frame!! I had no idea that the die and folder worked together (although now my gotta have it list just got bigger!) The smoosh 3D cut outs and “water color experiment” are so inspiring… and gorgeous <3 Thanks!

  9. Loving the new Altenew release! All of your cards are SO pretty and use the new product fabulously. I especially love your embossed tulips card!!! It might have to come to my craft room to live forever. 😉
