Altenew January 2018 Release Blog + Giveaway @akossakovskaya #cardmaking #altenew

Welcome to Altenew January 2018 Release Blog Hop, friends! You are here from Lilith‘s blog and now my turn to introduce my projects for today. This month Altenew releases the new bundle of stand alone dies! And they are really amazing, believe me! I made three cards and one video for you.

To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to SIX lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and Altenew Scrapbook Blog by Monday, January 15th for a chance to win. Six winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 1/17/2018.

I’ll also pick one lucky winner from comments to this post who will receive another certificate!

It had to be only one card, but I always try to use the materials to the maximum — especially if we talk about the paper or the card stock. So I used the negatives of the die cuts to create another card)) This is the duo of the cards with black and white stripes — I used new Watercolor Stripes Cover Die to make the backgrounds. I will not write up here the step by step process, you can find the processing video in the middle of this post.

I tried to use as many new products as I can, and I used only dies and inks for all my cards today! Only added the sentiments from Label Love stamp set — it has neutral design and such texts are always in place.

I layered  Caps Bold Alphabet and Rose Flurries 3D Die Sets — and you can see how I twisted the details — it adds more dimensions and depth to the cards, and they don’t look so simple already.

And here you can find the processing video (also available on my YouTube channel):

And the last card for today — fast and simple, but I was so inspired by new Shattered Triangle Die Set and I had the idea in my head for it. I blended a piece of the white card stock with rainbow color scheme using Altenew Crisp Inks. Then I die cut the solid triangles of it — they are the bottom layer here.

Then I die cut the triangle frames of the foam sheet and adhered them with the glue over the colored solid triangles. And then just adhered them to the card base and added the sentiment and some sequins.
