Altenew Texture Adventure Stand-alone Dies Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello! Crafty friends!

Welcome to my stop on the Altenew Texture Adventure Stand-alone Dies Release Blog Hop. If you are arriving from Amber's blog, then you are in the right place :) I have the Full Blog Hop list at the end of  this post. SO sit back and enjoy!

Don't you LOVE the ease of creating with Stand-Alone Dies? Take a look at the full Texture Adventure Stand-alone Dies Release from Altenew.


Oh! what fun was had with the Simple Nesting Flowers Layering Die Set . So many possibilities with all the varied shapes and sizes of flower dies.  Look at all three cards together: Each one has the new Featured Sentiments Die Set  showcasing the stamped sentiment.

*******

For this first one, I die cut several layers of flowers and leaves from mixed media papers that I had in my "not quite right; could be useful later" stash. 

By using his stylist and foam mat, I was able to curl up the petals and leaves for dimension. Then I layered them up on a Tangled Loops Cover Die that was heat embossed in several different places with the Caribbean Sky Crisp Embossing Powder.


There's a tiny hint of one of the Leaf Mix Die Set .

*******

For the second card I did not add any dimension to the flower petals and just left them flat. I still find it very pretty!



*******

And on the third one: I did a mix of both flat and curled pedals creating a little bit of a paper flower motif.

*******
Moving on to a different color scheme for these next two cards. Can you say Neapolitan ice cream? Or how about those delightful stripped candies: chocolate coconut and vanilla. Weren't those called Neapolitan too?
*******

I created a cluster of leaves that I thought look like feathers using the Leaf Mix die set cut from Red Cosmos and Cherry Blossom Gradient cardstock Collection.Then layered them onto the Stacked Diamonds Cover Die for a tone on tone look with Neenah Desert Storm cardstock.


And this last one features Layered Geo Cover dies A and B. Ink blended with coordinating crisp ink collections. 
*******

What are your favorite guys from the Texture Adventure Stand-alone Dies Release?

With most releases it's easy to choose a favorite, but it's impossible with this one. They are all fantastic, but the Leaf Mix and those gorgeous cover dies are definitely at the top. Your cards are all beautiful. I love that you went to your "not quite right; could be useful later" stash. I have one of those, too, but I never think of it. You've inspired me to pull it out and see what I can do with it.
