Hello, Altenew friends! It’s Laurie here today, showcasing the new Shine Die Set. I have 3 coordinating cards to share with you, all with similar Shine sentiments.
Today’s cards will be using Altenew’s Watercolor Dots Background, Build-A-Flower: Poppy, and a few sentiments from Shine Like a Diamond. I had so much fun using these sets together to create coordinating cards but all with different looks.
For each background, I stamped the Watercolor Dots using my Misti Stamp Positioner. Instead of dabbing on the ink, I swiped rows to create a streaked look in the dots. I built each background with a different layout. Build-A-Flower: Poppy is such a gorgeous set with a bloom that is very easy to stamp. I added one bloom to each card.
Using glitter paper, I was able to add a little shine to each card front. To finish off the cards, I used the Shine Die Set. This die set comes with 2 dies that can be used separately or stacked together. I love the white on white cardstock sentiment look but also found the black on black cardstock looked great too!
I kept this card clean and simple with a stamped bloom and sentiment all focused towards the bottom of the card. Doing this allowed for a large area of white space. This really makes the bloom and sentiment pop!
For some added dimension with this sentiment, I die cut both dies using black cardstock and then used the shadow die to cut out a layer of black fun foam. All three pieces layered together help the sentiment to really stand out.
I stamped the leaves from Build-A-Flower: Poppy to the card base and to the front card panel. After layering on the bloom and then stamping on the sentiment, from Shine Like a Diamond, I finished it off with the glittery Shine.
After layering on the bloom and then stamping on the sentiment, I finished it off with the glittery Shine die-cuts.
Thanks so much for coming by today. I hope you have enjoyed today’s coordinating projects! Hope you have a great day!
