Altenew Texture Adventure Stand-alone Dies Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello there!

Welcome to the Altenew Texture Adventure Stand-Alone Dies Release Blog Hop + Giveaway.   You are arriving from Nicole's blog - a list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post-


Today, Altenew is releasing a new Stand-Alone Dies collection that is going to inspire you to create all sorts of projects... I had a lot of fun with these, so let's get started...


I am a fan of dimensional pieces and beautiful packaging!  So, i was so happy to get the new Mini 3D Stars Die set as it creates the cutest 3D stars!  I cut a few of them from Metallic Kraft paper and cluster them to create the embellishment in this packaging.

All the small stars are plenty for this CAS packaging idea, all i added was the sentiment ( Handwritten Hello Die set)and it is ready for delivery!


It was so hard to chose favorites from this release, as all the dies are amazing.  I love linear dies, and the new Stacked Diamonds Cover Die is just perfect to create all sorts of projects, like this CAS card.



I created 3 die cuts and staked them together to bring dimension to the card.  I used the die to also cut some ombre cardstock, then used the negative pieces to add the details inside the Die cut spaces. I added a simple sentiment created from Metallic kraft paper and the Welcome Home Die set.


If you are  a cardmaker, then you are going to love the new Layered Geo Cover Dies.    These new set works beautifully together or separately.   I have chosen to combine them in this card.

 

I used the Layered Geo Cover Die B to cut a pannel from gold metallic cardstock, and then Layered Geo Cover Die A to cut a panel from white cardstock.  I added a bit of foam adhesive to layer these atop a piece of black cardstock.   For the sentiment, i used the negative piece of the die cut and stamped an image from the BAF: Columbine, then added a few satin gold sequin also from Altenew.



If you have seen my work before, then you know i love using Altenew products for my memory keeping.  This time, i paired the new Tangle Loops Cover Die with a bit of ink blending and a fun title work.

I used the die to create a longer panel ( 4*8) that will sit atop an ombre backgrounnd ( Ink blendin).  The die cut fits right in, all that was left to do was create a title ( Mega Brush Alpha stamp set and Mega Label love stamp set)



For my last project, i chose to combine three of new released dies into one layout.   I started with the BURLAP TEXTURE die.  I cut a few piece of canvas with the die to help me add texture to the layout.


Next, i used the LEAF MIX DIE SET and SIMPLE NESTING DIE SET to  create the embellishments for the page.  Here, i used the Altenew Artist Marker set E to add a bit of detail to the flowers.   


I added the pictures to my page, and then used the leafs and flowers to create clusters around them!  

As you can see i had lots of fun with all these new dies.  I am sure you are all having a hard time deciding on  a new favorite!  Remember that Altenew is offering a free gift for a limited time to celebrate this release:
