I wanted to create a card with a traditional Christmas color combo, green and red, but not necessarily just for a holiday card.
Hello, Altenew friends! This is Virginia! I am excited to share a few simple and fun projects. These cards may be easy to create, however, they are far from boring! We all love cards with an WOW Factor. Let’s have an in-dept look on how to do just that with the awesome Altenew supplies. The Fantasy Floral Dies are my latest obsession because I simply can not put them down once I start playing! Let’s get right to it, shall we?
The first card is actually the easiest one. The 6×6 Reflection Paper Pad is really handy for die-cutting.
You see, the beautiful pattern paper does all the work. The WOW factor? The subtle stamped background. I love the delicate image from Charmed Stamp Set. It has just the right amount of lines and space. The sentiment from “More than Words” completes the design.
Another great way to create colorful die cut pieces is using the Altenew Metallic Shimmer Ink Sprays. And that’s how I created the Fantasy Floral die cut pieces in my 2nd (and 3rd card). The WOW factor in this is that the heart die paper with Reflection Paper Pad.
The Halftone Hearts Nesting Die Set is just the ticket!
My next card is bright with a Midas Touch. The Gold Foil Card Stock is the shhhhhh…. “secret weapon”.
Notice the dry-embossed details? I used the leaf dies from Fantasy Floral with a Spellbinder Tan Mat and ran it through my die cut machine. It works like a charm! The sentiment “Thanks” from “Script Words Die 2” surely makes quite a statement.
My last card may look plain, but it really is not. The WOW factor lies in those colored leaves!
I used the negative piece (of the leaf die cut paper) as a mask and sponged the space with “Frayed Leaf Crisp Dye Ink” and “Olive Crisp Dye Ink“. There are no special supplies, gadgets and tools required–just your stamps, inks and dies!
The sentiment from “More Than Words” Stamp Set enhances the overall design, too. Love that set.
Hi there everyone, Lydia here with you today. I’m sharing an idea that may help you re-purpose scraps from your scrap-box.
I started by stamping flowers and leaves from the Amazing You set on white paper panel in black dye ink. I then colored the stamped images with the Artist Markers (some part I used Copic markers). I added tiny black dots between images using black. For the sentiment, I die cut the word “Thanks” from metallic gold card stock using the Script Words 2 dies five times, glued them together using fine tip glue pen. I mounted the floral panel on white card base using glue tape first, and then added the sentiment die cut on the card front using foam tape. I added water droplets using Glossy Accents. More
Hello Everyone! It is Aga here and I hope everyone had a great week. It sure flew by for me! Today I would like to share a CAS card using Fantasy Floral Die Set, definitely one of my favourite products from the new release. It’s a beautiful and elegant set, perfect to create very detailed flowers. It can be used with various colours of cardstock but it also coordinates with the Floral Fantasy Stamp Set. Here’s what I came up with using those two sets together:
I started by stamping my sentiments from the Heartfelt Sentiments stamp set. Next I stamped two layers of flower from the Floral Fantasy set on another cardstock. I inked up the bottom layer with two inks: Pink Diamond and Sand Dunes and used Cotton Candy ink for the other layer. The leaves were stamped with Sand Dunes ink. Then I cut everything out with the matching Fantasy Floral Die Set.
To finish my card I added little hearts that were die cut out of gold glitter cardstock with the Envelope Liner Die Set.
Thank you for stopping by today! Have a great weekend!
