Welcome to Altenew's blog hop celebrating the awesome Fine & Dandy Collection release! You should have arrived here from the amazing blog of Virginia Lu. If you need to start at the beginning, head on over to the Altenew Card Blog.
Check out all of these fabulous new products! The new brushed metallic cardstock is now my favorite too! Check it all out in the Altenew shop!
This is such an amazing release! I've made five cards to share today, and so that my blog post isn't ridiculously long, I'll be listing the products and ink colors I've used along with just a few details. If you have a question, please feel free to use the "contact me" form in the left column of my blog.
This next card has lots of fun sparkle and shine. I think there are so many ways to use this Exquisite Marble hot foil plate in your cards!
I used pink foil with the Exquisite Marble hot foil plate. I die cut the Happy Birthday Die sentiment with Pink Brilliance glitter cardstock and used the new Brushed Silver Metallic card stock for the mat layer and some of the greenery sprigs from the Charming Foliage die set.
I added an offset layer to the sentiment with the Brushed Silver cardstock too!
I know it doesn't show in the photos, but yes, the Freesia is hot foiled! I used a black foil and it's just gorgeous in real life! I used these Crisp Die inks to color the flower: Parrot, Olive, Moss, Sunray, Chamomile, and Snapdragon.
I used the Dreamy Tiles 3D embossing folder for my card layer. The sentiment is die cut from glossy black cardstock with the Fancy Thanks die. This is such a stunning card, but so very quick and easy to make!
Last, but not least is my card where I've used the Oriental Poppy Outline Stamp & Die set bundle. You can get these bundled with the Simple Coloring Stencil set that I've also used. The gorgeous background features the beautiful Peaceful Poppies 3D embossing folder. I love Altenew's embossing folders!!
First, I embossed an A2 piece of white cardstock with the Peaceful Poppies 3D embossing folder for my background layer.
I used the coordinating Simple Coloring Stencils and ink blending brushes to color the flowers and leaves. I used inks in the Tea Party Crisp dye ink cube set. The leaves are Grass Field and Shadow Creek inks.
I added one of the several lovely sentiments to choose from in the Oriental Poppy Outline set after I heat embossed in gold embossing powder.
I sure hope you've been inspired by my cards here today! This is such a beautiful collection! Be sure to leave a comment here before heading to the next stop on the blog hop.
