Altenew 7th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 4 + Giveaway (over $1,400 in Total Prizes)



Happy Birthday Altenew!  I am honored to be celebrating this day along with such a talented group of designers and sponsors.  Altenew Cosmos Acrylic die cut flowers.

Die Cutting Floral Images From Acrylic Gelli Plate Prints

Recently, I spent a fun day making Acrylic Gel Press Monoprints and thought it would be fun to die-cut some of the images and make a few high contrast colorful birthday cards.  I used my favorite Altenew Craft-A-Flower kit, Cosmos Layering Dies for each of my projects.  

I sorted through my prints and selected bright colors that I thought would look nice on a card.  The first print was loosely brayered with turquoise and brown acrylic ink.  The flowers were die cut from three monoprint panels:  orange/red/gold; olive/yellow/gold and the whitish elements were cut from panels where I brayered off ink in between prints, so they have more white areas.  My sentiment is from an ancient labeler I had at the house.

Gel Press Die Cut Flowers
I love the background on this next card!  I put blue, yellow and olive on my press and then brayered gold over the Narrow Brick Stencil, which gives a beautiful textured look.  I used the Rounded Rectangles Die Set to trim down my panel.
Gel Press + Die Cut Flowers for a card.
The flower was die-cut using the  Cosmos Craft-A-Flower Kit.

Acrylic Monoprint die cut flower
For this last card, the background is from the same panel as card 1.  I again used the Rounded Rectangles and Cosmos Layering Die Set.  The sentiment is from the  Essential Sentiment Strips,
Gelli Print Handmade Card
   I think this makes a happy card.
Turquoise and Red Floral Card
