There is so much to love in this new release from Altenew; from layering flower dies to a complete gorgeous flower suite, it was easy and hard to pick what to work with... Let me show you what I have created:
I love the new MAGNOLIA BALLERINA Stamp/Die/Coloring Stencil/Embossing Folder Bundle, and use all of the suite to create this new spread in my daily journal.
I love how the die set and coloring stencil fit the embossing folder perfectly; this means I can create a dimensional embellishment for my project in a few steps. Plus the MAGNOLIA BALLERINA Stamp set has the best sentiments -perfect to create titles, too-
I am a fan of partial die cutting elements; so the new EDGED WILDFLOWER DIE was one I wanted to use for this page( boys and flowers match perfectly!!!).
Once again, I reached for the MAGNOLIA BALLERINA STAMP SET for some of the sentiments to create the title for this spread.
I love geometric/graphic dies, and the new STARLIGHT DIE combines those two qualities. The shape reminded me of a snowflake; so, it made it so easy to use to document the weather here in Toronto, lately!
And of course, I made cards!!!
The new WISPY FEATHERS LAYERED DIE SET is one I loved as soon as I saw the design of the feathers. I wanted to keep the card light and airy as the feathers. So, I cut the feathers from white cardstock, and the backing shape from vellum.
I used a WISPY FEATHERS DIE SET to cut one of the outline shapes from metallic cardstock, and used it as a middle layer in the top feather... The hint of the color adds dimension and definition to the card. Did I mentioned, I am loving all the sentiment in the MAGNOLIA BALLERINA STAMP SET!
I hope these have given you some inspiration for your future projects with today's release. I cannot wait to see what you create.
