Hi there! Today, Altenew is releasing their latest in the Craft-A-Flower series: Daffodil! We are also releasing some gorgeous new Gradient Glitter Cardstock Packs. We’re celebrating with a blog hop to show off the new products- you should have arrived here from Altenew Card Blog, and your next stop is Amanda Baldwin. I have two projects to share with you today, so let’s get started with the details!
If you love layering dies, you should definitely subscribe to the Craft-A-Flower series to receive each month’s die set at a discount! This month’s Craft-A-Flower is so beautiful…. I feel like daffodils always get overlooked because their season is so short-lived, but they provide such a gorgeous burst of color in your yard after the dreary gray-ness of winter!
My first project features the some sunny, cheerful daffodils created with the Craft-A-Flower Daffodil. I die cut several using a variety of peach and yellow cardstocks (I love the peachy daffodils. So unique and a refreshing change from the typical bright yellow!) and assembled them using liquid glue and Instant Dimension Foam Tape.
I then trimmed a mini-slimline card base from some pale aqua cardstock and blended some Turquoise ink around the edges with a Small Ink Blending Tool.
I adhered the daffodils and foliage to the blended card front using liquid and foam adhesive, then added a greeting (from the Thinking of You set, embossed in gold on a strip of yellow cardstock), also popped up with foam tape. Finally, some iridescent turquoise gems finished it off!
My second project features the new glitter cardstocks. These new papers are just. so. sparkly. And, bonus, they fit perfectly in the Mini Blossom Die Cutting Machine! I cut several blooms from the Jumbo Garden Picks die set using Dazzling Diamond glitter cardstock, then die cut some sparkling blue foliage from the same die set using Ocean Reflection glitter cardstock.
I die cut a giant “thanks” using the Mega Thanks die and some beautiful medium blue cardstock. I kept everything very monochromatic, but the sparkles and textures of the glitter paper help to keep things visually exciting!
I adhered the flowers and foliage to another pale aqua card base using liquid adhesive, then added the thanks die cut using Instant Dimension Foam Tape. The final touch was a few turquoise gems for added texture!
Well, that’s all for my projects today featuring the new Craft-A-Flower Daffodil and gradient glitter cardstock (which are a bit low in stock, so be sure that you sign up for in-stock notifications via email!). Now, to celebrate this release, Altenew has some wonderful giveaways!
