Altenew Wondrous World Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Altenew 3D Embossing Folders

Hello and thanks for hopping!  I am so excited to be participing in  Altenew's new release of 3D Embossing Folders, Dies, Stencils and Enamel Dots.  I am showcasing  several new products below so be sure to scroll down to see them all....I went a little crazy making cards!  All of these products are now available in the Altenew Shop.

I really like this first card.  I took a piece of aqua cardstock and embossed using this fun new 3D embossing folder called Modern Squares.   I am also planning to use this embossing folder on backgrounds for some upcoming floral cards.  I love the texture and interest it adds to a background.

Altenew Fancy Celebrate die with copper mirror cardstock
I very gently used my  Large Blending Tool to blend white pigment ink on the top of the raised diamonds.  I die cut a white band using the new Nesting Slim Rectangle Die set.  This new sentiment, Fancy Celebrate Die is gorgeous, big and showy.  I die-cut it from copper mirror cardstock.  

Masculine birthday card

I went for ultra feminine on this card I made for my mom.  Lots of pink and neutral gray.  I embossed a panel with the beautiful new Simple Frame 3D embossing folder.   I then very gently used my  Large Blending Tool to add a subtle layer of pink pigment ink over the entire card.  I went back with my Small Ink Blending Tool and added more pink along the raised frame to add definition to the embossing.  The flower is from this month's Build-A-Flower called Bellaroma Hybrid Tea Rose.  I finished by adding Tea Party Enamel  Dots.  This frame really sets a beautiful stage for die-cut focal elements.

The Flowery Field 3D embossing folder is gorgeous!   I embossed a piece of green cardstock and then very gently used my  Large Blending Tool to add white pigment ink to the blooms.  I then went over the highest points with white pigment ink and a  Small Ink Blending Tool.  The Thanks sentiment was die-cut from navy cardstock. I finished by adding navy enamel dots from the new Glacier Caves Collection.

The last few cards using the Daisies 3D Embossing Folder are my favorites, but my photography skills did not capture their true beauty.  I added white pigment ink  to the sticker side of the embossing folder and then smoothed with a brayer.  I then embossed on navy cardstock.  The sentiment is from this month's Build A Flower: Bellaroma Hybrid Tea Rose.  I finished by adding tiny Antique Gold Sequins.

Navy cardstock + white pigment ink + Altenew Daisies 3D embossing folder
I took some periwinkle cardstock and embossed with the Daisies 3D Folder.  Using a circular motion I  very gently used my  Large Blending Tool to blend white pigment ink onto the flowers. I finished by adding a few more white pigment highlights with a small ink blending tool.  I added a  Simply Hello Die-cut Sentiment and Glacier Caves enamel dots.  This card is so pretty in person but was the hardest to photograph.

3D embossing folders are great for mass producing lovely cards.  Fairly quick to make with a beautiful end result.  On this card I again used a brayer to add pink pigment ink to the embossing folder.  I love how happy and cheerful these embossed daisies are! I finished off with some more Tea Party Enamel Dots.

On this last card I added two colors, yellow and orange, with a brayer.  Subtle but oh so happy, pretty and cheerful.   I think these would also make lovely get well cards.

  7. Great cards! I like that you used colored cardstock and then lighted it with white pigment. It is a much different and softer look than others I have seen. That being said it is your white cardstock daisy 3D cards that are my favorite. Stunning!
