I am so excited to do my first blog hop post as a guest designer for Altenew! You probably got here from the amazing Virginia Lu's blog and next you will be off to see what wonderful things Reiko Tsuchida is up to.
I love diecuts, as they are an easy way to make a card special and add dimension and interest to your handmade goodies. Today’s hop is all about Altenew's Texture Adventure Stand-alone Dies Release and features a fabulous Giveaway. Stay with me for details!
When I saw the Leaf Mix Die Set, I immediately wanted to create a rainbow from the many different designs, you get 14 in total!
I started with choosing bold, bright tones from my cardstock stash; one from each color family, ended up with 12 colors and got to work with my diecutter and a cupcake pan. I diecut all of the leaf designs in each color and placed each set into its own section of my cupcake pan.
Oh so cute and I have diecuts for days and the freedom to experiment with them until I am happy with my design. These diecuts are designed for layering, but they are also fabulous on their own. I arranged them in ROYGBIV order on a slimline-sized (8 1/2" x 3 1/2") card front.
I hope rainbows bring you smiles as well!
Of course, I couldn’t stop with just one card, so I assembled the leaves in cool shades of blues and greens against a striking black backdrop for a bold graphic look.
For my next card, I forgot all about leaves and made a flower in shades of pink and orange.
This set is so versatile, the more you look at it, the more possibilities that you see. Even with these three cards, I have many diecuts leftover which will allow me to quickly put together more cards or make tags or...
Please stay tuned for more Insta posts with other gorgeous dies from this release!!!
