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”.


Doesn’t it make you go “WOW”!? I love the leaves from the Shimmer Sprays as the misting gives such an organic feel.


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.

I hope today’s post WOWS you a little bit and makes you want to create  and have fun! Here is an overview of all the cards I created with Fantasy Floral.


Thank you so much for the visit. See you soon!
