Altenew NEW Year-End Celebration Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)


Hi there!

Welcome to ALTENEW NEW YEAR-END CELEBRATION COLLECTION RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY.  You are arriving from my friend Yasmin Diaz blog.   A list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience.

Today's release is filled with fun and versatile stand-alone dies that are both beautiful and versatile...  Let me show you what I have created:

The new CELEBRATE WITH CAKE DIE SET is probably one that will be used quite a bit in the upcoming year.  IT is  perfect for all celebrations.  I used it to document my sister's recent 45th birthday. I picked colors from the background paper to create the cake layers.

The new NESTING SLIM LABELS DIE SET is another one that will be on my desk for easy access. It creates the perfect size labels for all sorts of projects.  I paired them to create the sentiment/title spot in the spread.

Let's just say most of today's release is going to a permanent spot in my desk.   The new MEGA STAMP FRAMES DIE SET is probably one of my favorites this year.  I love the fact that it can be used to give your photos a nice frame!

It was so easy to add multiple photos to the frames in the spread, and  the new LOVELY DAISIES DIE SET was just perfect to add that whimsical softness to the entire spread.  Just love how this turned out!

Of course the new MEGA STAMP FRAMES DIE SET can be used beyond memory keeping.  The large frame fits  nicely in an A2 card.

I paired it up with the new ALTENEW DECORATIVE TAGS DIE SET.  The leaf design at the bottom of the tag is delicate and elegant, that all you need is a simple sentiment to complete it.  I am using one from the MEGA STAMP FRAMES DIE SET.

I just love the new DECORATIVE TAGS DIE SET so much. I used the second design to create this clean and elegant card.  Nothing better than a white on white CAS card!

I wrapped some metallic twine around the card panel, then thread my tag through it. Here I used the new FANCY YAY DIE to create the large sentiment from glitter cardstock!

For my last project. I am mixing the new NESTING SLIM LABELS DIE SET  to create the background for my card.  I cut it from  dark teal cardstock, and just added a piece of the largest label to an A2 panel.

I then used the new MINI ROLLED ROSE DIE SET to cut all the flowers and leaves for the card.  These roses are easy to build.  I first used a small ball tool to softly curl the petals, then literally roll them  and held them together with a dot of hot glue!

The dimension the flowers give to the card is amazing!  It is like having a small rose in each card front.

I love how all these projects came together so easily!! and how these new die sets can easily work beyond cardmaking!

To celebrate the release, Altenew is having a promotion, be sure to take advantage of it to get  a few extra goodies in your bag.
