Welcome to Altenew's Winter Essentials Stand-Alone Dies Release Blog Hop + Giveaway. You are arriving from Vicki Pappaioannou's blog. A list of all of today's participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience.
Today Altenew is releasing a new set of stand alone dies that are amazing!! These are perfect for all sorts of paper crafting, Holiday cards and memory keeping. Let me show you what I have created...
My first project features the new LACY PANEL DIE , ESSENTIAL STRIPS DIE SET, and the LINEAR PATHWAY ALPHA SOLID DIE SET in a new entry for my Family Album. I chose a paper from the Reflection collection for the background, and used the Alpha die set to cut part of my title along the left side of my page. Once i added the picture, I completed my title with chipboard alphas from the Enjoy Your Ride collection.
I created a LACY PANEL die cut (from the same paper) and used it to create a pocket, and stitched in place. I used the Terrific Tags die set to create the basis for my picture and journal tags. Finally, I used the ESSENTIAL STRIPS DIE SET to create a small sentiment as a subtitle for the pocket.
Since I had a few pictures of my son's workout routine, I decided to create a small interactive flap to house all the pictures on the page. I simply added a few of the ESSENTIAL SENTIMENT STRIPS Die cuts as subtitles for the picture. Easy peasy!
If you have seen my work before, then you might know that I do lots of daily documenting. So, I am always trying to find ways to create quick pages in my albums. So, the new LAYERED GIFT Tags were perfect to create simple one page layouts in a jiffy!
I pulled the new LAYERED GIFT TAG - PRESENT DIE SET to create a few of the die cuts from cardstock. I layered this as cascading down the page, and added the picture of my little sister's virtual birthday party. A simple title made from alphas and one of the Essential Sentiments Strip die cuts completes the page.
For the other side of the spread, I chose the LAYERED TAG - HEART DIE SET to create the background and part of the title for the spread. I cut the two tags from different shades of the same color family and layered them, so that I could nestle the picture within them. A few extra decorations complete the page. Simple, colorful and easy!
Of course, I had to create a few cards with some of these amazing dies. For this card, I glued paper strips to a piece of paper, and then used the HAPPY HOLIDAYS SCRIPT DIE SET to cut the sentiment. I created the card panel and attached the sentiment and covered it completely with glossy accents. A few jewels and a bow die cut from the MANTEL DECOR - WINTER DIE SET completes the card.
For my next card, I used the LAYERED TAGS - CAKE DIE SET to cut create the die cuts from white cardstock and vellum. I layered them together, then attached them to a card panel made with colorful paper strips. A few sequin complete my card... super CAS, and I love it!
I am not a card maker, but there are those times when you want a special card for someone, and the best choice is always to craft it. This is what I did for this card using the new LAYERED TAGS - ONESIE DIE SET .
I created the card panel with the Woven Stencil, a bit of ink and Altenew's small Ink Blending tools so that it had an ombre effect. I used the die set and cut the detailed die from white cardstock. I used a piece of yellow paper to back the letter space, and attached it with foam adhesive to the panel. I use the Layered Floral Element die set to cut a few flowers and clustered them around the onesie. Just love how it turned out! and so did my cousin!!!
