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. What a stunning card, I love the colors that you used, great job! Thanks for the idea to use paint, instead of ink. Love the new dies you used, particularly the Watercolor Stripes Cover.

  2. The colour palette on your card is so fabulous. Colouring with ink is new to me so I’m grateful that you shared a technique video.

  3. Your card is just stunning! I so love the colors you used to create that gorgeous peony. It definitely looks very tropical and makes me want to be on the beach surrounded by palm trees!!

  4. WOW
    Your card is WONDERFUL in every way Shari!
    LOVE your layers, dimension and design, a true DELIGHT to the eyes that TOTALLY INSPIRES!
    THANK YOU for sharing :)

  5. Oh my your card simple takes my breath away. I love the warm tropical colours and how you managed your stacked arrangement and the watercolour line die is simple awesome. Thanks so much for sharing. Will be watching your video again.

  6. Beautiful card, Shari! Love how you have used the paints with the watercolour stripes background – that die is definitely on my wish list.

  7. Another gorgeous product by altenew. I have the first layering peony but this one I might have to get. Can anyone have too many peonies lol
