Hi there! I’m so excited to be taking part in Altenew’s November Stamp and Die Release Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Caly Person and your next stop is Kymona Tracey. You can also start at the beginning if you have gotten lost! There are some beautiful new products available for purchase, and I have two projects to share today, so let’s get started with the details!
For my first project, I used the new Mix and Match Mariposa dies and some watercoloring to create this ethereal project! I began by taping a panel of watercolor paper down to my board, then painted a pretty ombre wash from peach to plum, adding some artistic splatters and spritzing it with Iridescent Shimmer Spray from Altenew.
Next, I die cut several of the detailed butterflies from the Mix and Match Mariposa from some heavyweight vellum. I trimmed down the watercolored panel after it had dried and mounted it on a panel of coral cardstock. I also die cut a Handwritten Hello from some glittery white cardstock.
I adhered the butterflies and hello die cut on the watercolored panel, popping up the butterfly wings a little to add extra dimension. The final touch was to add some pretty jewels in various sizes to draw the eye down the card front!
For my second project, I used the beautiful new Poppy Garden stamps and dies. I began by stamping several of the images from the Poppy Garden set on some white Copic-friendly cardstock. I then colored the images using shades of deep red and plum with some bright lime green leaves. I used the coordinating dies to die cut all of the colored images.
I love using white on white for elegant textured backgrounds, especially when paired with a brightly colored bouquet. I die cut the Layered Plaid Cover Plate B Die from some plain white cardstock and adhered it to a white A2 card base. I arranged the floral die cuts in a bouquet, then adhered the bouquet using foam adhesive for extra dimension.
I die cut the thicker Handwritten Hello die using some more white cardstock. I adhered the die cut to the bouquet. I love the contrast of the bright white sentiment over the brightly colored flowers. I added a few gems for a bit of sparkle.
Well, that’s all for my projects today! Altenew has some great giveaways to celebrate this new release.
We’ll also draw a winner to receive a $20 gift certificate from the comments left on each designer’s blog on the blog hop list below. All winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 11/16/2019.
