Altenew January 2018 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Altenew Blog Hop

Welcome everyone!! If you have come from Reiko Tsuchida‘s blog, you’re in the right place! It’s Shari carroll here to give you some inspiration using the new Altenew Peony Dream and Watercolor Stripes Cover dies.

I’ve been experimenting with ways of adding color to my cards and have found a really easy technique of fingerprinting with Dina Wakley Acrylic paints.

Shari Carroll, Altenew,

I die cut my pieces, added color with paints and stacked them back together with a bit of foam tape for dimension. The colors are fresh and tropical which warms me up in the middle of winter.

I’ve filmed a video showing the process of creating this card. You can view it below or on our YouTube channel HERE.

  1. Just beautiful! I have the Fantasy Floral Layering die from Altenew and love it. I’m glad to see some other floral designs and I love the use of the paint with the dies.

  2. Shari, this card is exquisite! I am in awe with what you have done with these die cuts. The colors are so well coordinated to create a subtle but rich visual feast. tfs

    1. Can you tell me the type or style of baby wipes one would use in making projects? Does it matter if they are scented? Thanks.

  3. I LOVE the soft colors from the watercoloring in your card! Beautiful card and such terrific inspiration! Thanks for sharing!

  4. I was so surprised to see that you used acrylic paint. When I first saw your design I was sure it was watercolored. I love the softness it added to your design. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Such a beautiful card! The flowers came out just gorgeous! Thanks for sharing the technique you used to achieve it!

  6. When life hand you lemons…fingerpaint! It’s a totally wonderful project and the colors are just dreamy! (Amazing what you can do with a cast, isn’t it?! The first time I ever cracked an egg with one hand, it was my non-dominant hand and I didn’t even think about it–just picked up the egg and cracked it! Hope you heal up fast. And thank you for this lovely example of what these dies can do!

  7. Wow, even injured your card shines.
    Love this new die release and I love all the inspiration from this hop.
    Cheers
    Lisa
