10:00:00 PM


Hello, crafty friends!
Welcome to the Altenew Card Kit/Layering Dies Release Blog Hop! I'm so very honored and delighted to join Altenew release hop with super duper talented ladies. One of my crafty dreams comes true!!!
Hopefully you have arrived here from amazing Virginia's blog but if you lost your way, head over to Altenew blog for your happy hopping!

To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to THREE lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew blog by Friday, April 14th at 11:59 pm EDT for a chance to win. The winners will be announced on the Altenew blog on Saturday, April 15th.

In addition, I'll draw one winner who recieve $30 gift certificate from comments below and announce by April 14th on my blog.



Altenew releases lots of amazing product in this month. Among them, I'd like to feature Layered Floral Cover Die A and Layered Floral Cover Die B in particular and have two cards to share with you today. I'm really in love with this set! Here are what I came up with.

Layering and Stenciling


 
For my first card, I used Layered Floral Cover Die A, B set for layering but also stenciling at once. In design step, I imagined pond with flower trees and I love how the reflection effect turned out in this card.

 
I started by die cutting two dies from white card stock and cut them in half using scissors. As shown in the picture, I stenciled flowers twice on the watercolor paper with distress inks and some dye inks. I then lightly brushed stenciled image with waterbrush to give it a watercolor look.
 
 
Next, I sponged dye inks with mini daubers on the die cut from Layered Floral Cover Die B. With more dark colors, I ink blended shadow part onto the watercolor panel. I then stacked up flower layers using foam adhesive. At this step, I glued outline part not perfectly fit to the base part because I thought it's a good way to give more dimension to flowers.
 
  
Sentiments are from Altenew Adore You Stamp set and I stamped it using Versafine Onyx Black. To finished it off, I embellished clear sequins and mounted watercolor panel to the A2 size white card base.
 

Layering for Magic Slider Card



Now, it's time to getting to my 2nd project, magic slider card! I love all kind of interactive cards and this hop is not an exception to show my love for fun card! *lol*


To start, I die cut each image 2 times from 2 black card stocks, 1 grey card stock and 1 watercolor paper using Layered Floral Cover Die A and Layered Floral Cover Die B. Each of them is for 1) black outline on the cover, 2) grey shade on the cover, 3) black outline for window on the acetate, 4) shade for coloring inside the card.

For front part, I glued 1) and 2) on the white card stock and made a window using rectangle die. I then glued 3) on the acetate and mounted it on the backside of the window. Then, I made slide handle using washi tape and partial die cutting.


Next, I adhered gold glitter paper for deep shadow part and I colored mid-shadow part from 4) with Zig markers. I applied base color and added some details to petals and leaves. After coloring, I glued it on the glitter paper.

For background between three flowers, I mounted black negative die cuts from 1) and 2).

I then created path for slider using clear foam tape.


To finish, I foam mounted whole slider part to the A2 size white card base. Oh, sentiment will be added on the inside of the card only for recipient :) 

Hope you enjoy these cards


  
Your next stop is Yoonsun Hur. Thank you so much for stopping by and happy hopping, everyone!
 
Love,
Dana
