I had so much fun time with Altenew August release, so I have 8 cards to share with you. Let's get started!


[ Doodled Lace Cover Die ]



For the first card, I started by die cutting Altenew Doodled Lace Cover Die from woodgrain card stock. I planned to use this cover die like elegant window of old castle, so I cut some part of it using scissors as shown in the picture.

Then, I softly ink blended with distress inks on bristol paper and created romantic night river scene using masking technique. I drew a couple on the boat with Copic multi liner and it's not a secret I completed them after 25 times more trying. Lol. I also added white dots on the sky using white gel pen.

Sentiment is from Altenew More Than Words Stamp set. I gold heat embossed it on vellum and placed it on the card front.

I foam mounted cover die on the background panel and adhered all of them on A2 sized white card base.



[ Rose Filament Die Set ]



In the next cards, I featured Altenew Rose Filament Die Set. Basically, I dry embossed each background with this die set after adding colors in the center using different mediums and techniques.

From left to right,
Watercolor paper + Distress inks with water,
Neenah paper + Distress inks, 
Kraft paper + Distress oxide inks.

I used same colors for simple comparison, Worn lipstick, Fossilized amber, Broken china and Cracked pistachio. 


For this card, I inked all distress inks on the acrylic block and spritzed water and stamped it on the card base. This way is inspired from Jennifer McGuire's video :) I then splattered each colors of distress inks here and there with water brush. After dry embossing the roses, I stamped sentiment from Altenew More Than Words Stamp set.



For next card, I roughly ink blended with distress inks using making technique. I usually prefer soft blending though, I love how the result turned out with shaker elements! I spritzed a little bit water over the blended part using mini mister.

I die cut 'be' alphabets from Altenew Bold Alphabet Die Set. I then foam mounted front panel on the card base after adding sequins inside.

Lastly, I gold heat embossed sentiment from Altenew Speech Bubbles Stamp Set onto vellum and adhered it using clear foam tape as shown in the picture.



For my 3rd card with Altenew Rose Filament Die Set, I ink blended with distress oxide inks. It was my first time to use oxide inks on the kraft paper and I love the result!

After dry embossing the background, I dry embossed one of flowers on the vellum and fussy cut it out with scissors. Can you see the textures of rose? It's not intended one! I think it came out naturally with thick vellum and embossing pad between cutting pads.

I then die cut same rose from metallic paper and adhered it on the vellum rose using glue. I stamped sentiment from Altenew Tea Time Stamp Set to finish off this card.



[ Speech Bubbles Stamp Set ]



How about stretch your stamps? As soon as I saw 'I like to party' sentiment from Altenew Speech Bubble Stamp Set, some fun ideas came to my mind and here is what I came up with.

Yes, it's a Halloween theme! I'm big fan of critter stamps, so I often critter-ize something when I don't find critter stamps nearby. In this time, I created spider from Altenew Halftone Circles Stamp Set. I stamped one of halftone circles with black pigment ink and drew legs using copic multi liner. I then embellished googly eyes to spider.

For background, I stenciled with dye inks using Altenew Tiny Bubbles Stencil and masking technique. Then I stamped speech bubble from Altenew Speech Bubbles Stamp Set. I really love the white part of sentiment with colorful background.

To finish, I added washi tape on the bottom of A2 sized white card base and mounted all elements where I wanted them using glue and foam adhesive.



[ Striped Leaf Cover Die ]



Now, this is the last collection I prepared for today. I'm totally in love with this Altenew Striped Leaf Cover Die!!! It is so very versatile and I have a ton of ideas to use this die, and I'm sharing 3 of them with you.

In these days, I'm in a good mood because my favorite season is coming! In this card, I tried to express the most beautiful moment of fall with fresh blue sky and colorful leaves of trees.

I started by ink blending the white card stock with distress inks and made ombre sky colors. I then die cut it using Altenew Striped Leaf Cover Die.

For background, I sponged lots of autumn color distress inks on the watercolor paper and spritzed water by fingers. After dried completely, I mounted two panels I created each other with glue.

I then stamped sentiment from Altenew Super Script Stamp Set with Versamark ink onto light grey card stock and heat embossed it with amethyst embossing powder. I then trimmed sentiment panel using craft knife and added bamboo ribbon on the right side of it. With foam mounting the sentiment panel, I finished this card off.


For next card, I die cut leaves two times using Altenew Striped Leaf Cover Die from watercolor paper and adhered it on the kraft card base with glue. I then cut the extra part using scissors.

I used the other die cut as a stencil. I ink blended with distress inks using this stencil and brushed lightly with water over the stenciled leaves. Then, I stamped sentiment from Altenew Speech Bubbles Stamp Set on it and fussy cut out using scissors.

For the center part of this card, I die cut 'hugs' using Altenew Script Words Die Set from woodgrain card stock and craft foam. I glued each other and colored side of them using dark brown copic marker.

I glued all pieces as shown in the picture and embellished some sequins here and there to finish this card.



Yay for the last card! I have some friends whose birthdays are near Christmas season. I've always prepared two cards, birthday & holiday cards, but It looks like just one card is also good for them if they get Christmas themed birthday card like this.

I started off by die cutting the red card stock using Altenew Striped Leaf cover Die. I then dry embossed metallic gold card stock using same die for dimension of leaves. I mounted two panels each other using glue.

I stamped 'celebrate' sentiment from Altenew Super Script Stamp Set and die cut with coordinating die set. I added mini jingle bells on the sentiment and it is really cute!

For other sentiments from same stamp set, I colored Christmas green colors using Altenew Artist Markers Set A on a piece of white card stock. Then, I white heat embossed the sentiment on it.

After mounting sentiment and sentiment bar with foam adhesive and glue, I die cut small heart using Altenew Halftone Hearts Nesting Die Set from glittery paper and placed it behind the sentiment.



Hope you enjoyed these cards and got some inspirations. Plus, I'm sharing how I used Altenew Storage Pouches (Large, Medium) with my stamps, dies, stencils in my IG with mini video. Click HERE.
