Hi there! Altenew is releasing a group of standalone dies in their Summer Adventure release, and we’re celebrating with a blog hop! You should have arrived here from Verity Biddlecombe, and your next stop is Bridget Casey, or you can start back at the beginning at the Altenew Blog! I have a project with lots of vivid color for you today, so let’s get started with the details!
I started today’s project by stamping the beautiful bouquet from the Altenew/Pinkfresh Studio collaboration set Celebrate Today and heat embossing it using silver embossing powder onto some watercolor paper. I then watercolored it in pretty shades of mauve and plum using the Altenew Artists’ Watercolors 24 Pan set. I die cut it with the coordinating die.
Next, I die cut the new Moroccan Lattice Cover Plate die from some medium gray cardstock. I love the unique shape of this quatrefoil background; its’ oblong shape is so interesting and unique! Before mounting it on some mauve cardstock, I used Midnight Violet ink and a blending brush to blend some deeper mauve around the edges. It’s amazing to me how you can achieve such different looks when you blend ink on cardstock that is already a vivid color! The Midnight Violet is a beautiful shade of purple, but on the mauve cardstock it takes on an entirely different look.
After I’d finished creating the card base, I die cut the “miss you” sentiment from the new All About You sentiment die set. I die cut the background layer from some silver glitter cardstock, then added the dark charcoal detail layer over the top. I popped up the floral bouquet die cut and the sentiment die cuts with some foam adhesive, then added a few pearls to add some shine.
Well, that’s all for my project today! Altenew has some fun giveaways to celebrate this new release:
