Hi there! Nathalie with you today with a few ideas on how to use the new and amazing TALL ALPHA DIE SET.   This new die set is delicate, practical and super versatile.   I love the design of each of the letters which makes it easy to use in your projects. I had fun with the TALL ALPHA DIE SET and created a couple layouts and a card with it.
Let's get started with  a background for a Traveler's Notebook layout.
  I used the TALL ALPHA DIE SET to create the background by repeatedly cutting the word "LOVE" from a Live Your Dream Collection paper.   

The negative part of the cut anchors the design on the left side, and the letter die cuts create a long title on the right side.  Here, i stamped a sentiment from the Tabbed stamp set to complete the title. 

I created embellishments for the layout using the Weekend Doodles Stamp and Die set with Black Obsidian Pigment Ink; then added a few enamel dots to complete  the page.  The following video will show you how it all came together

Now, let's create a dimensional card:

  First i cut the popular song title in a column on the left side of the card panel,then glued the panel to an A2 size card.   Next, i stamped the ornaments using  the Brilliant Baubles stamp set with the Lapis Lazuli and Spring Bouquet Mini Ink cube sets.

  Then attached them to the card panel with foam adhesive; I drew  lines behind the ornaments with a gold pen.     I cut the word "JOY" three times from white cardstock, and once from gold glitter paper.  Then, the die cuts were stacked together thus forming the dimensional sentiment.  Love the colorful card!  
Finally, let's create a long title for a scrapbook layout.

  First, I created the ombre patterned paper using the Altenew Watercolor Pan set and watercolor paper, then used the Tall Alpha Die Set to cut the quote from the paper.  Also, i created a dimensional die cut for the word " smile" so that it will stand out on the page.

     I heat embossed the Beautiful Peony Stamp Set images and detailed them with the Altenew watercolor pan set.  I also created the leaves with Altenew Embossing INk pad, gold  embossing powder and the Wallpaper Art Stamp and Die Set.  

 The center column paper comes from Live Your Dream collection.  Here, I used the Creative Edges: Lace Die to soften the edges of the paper column.     Assembling the page took no time, as the title fills the center column, thus creating pocket spaces for the pictures and floral images. 

 The final touch is a few Wood veneer embellishments and a few drops of Antique Gold Metallic Ink spray. You can see how this page came together in the following process video:

 I hope these inspire you to check the new TALL ALPHA DIE SET.  Its design is perfect to create backgrounds, titles and even add dimension to your projects.  You are going to love it! Thanks for stopping by!
