Valentine’s Day Card Featuring Altenew Flurries 3D Dies

Hello Everyone. Hope you are having a great January so far. Today I am here with my bright floral Valentine’s Day Cards.

When I saw this Rose Flurries 3D dies online on the blogs and instagram pictures, I had to have it. So i ordered this along with the Peony Dreams Die right away. They arrived last week. But I have been so busy with work and all , I finally got a chance to use it and turn it into beautiful cards just in time for Valentine’s Day.

I cut the word “Mine” using my Silhoutte Cameo. I thought a heart for the letter I would look cute. Then I cut a panel of 4 inches by 5 and 1/4th inches red cardstock aligning the word in the center of the panel.

Then I cut another panel of white cardstock the same size and adhered the letter cut outs on it. Stamped the word “Be” from one of the Simon Says Stamp stamp set.

I had already die cut some scraps of red shades of cardstock with my Rose Flurries 3D dies. It’s a layering die. What I love about these dies is that I can use up the tiniest scrap that I had been hoarding in my scrap stash. Adhered the layers together and amazingly beautiful roses were created. Did the same with the leaves.

I cut the main base of the card using Red cardstock. My card is 4 and the 1/4 by 5 and a 1/2 inches in dimensions.

The final job was to assemble the parts together. Which I found was the most fun.

Finally this beautiful Valentine’s day card was done. Hope you guys will like it. Please coment below. I always love to hear what you have to say.

Love

Jyoti

Altenew January 2018 Inspiration Challenge

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a great new year so far. I have always loved Altenew stamps and dies and I often visit their blog which is always so inspiring.

I came across this Altenew January 2018 Inspiration Challenge by Erum Tasneem. I loved the idea of a bright color palette and had to implement it. Here’s the inspiration picture from the post.

Altenew January 2018 Inspiration Challenge

Orange and yellow colors always make me smile — it reminds me of sunshine after a rainy day. Besides, pink is my favorite color. So, because I wanted to use these colors, I decided to participate in the challenge.

I had to make two cards because my creative mind couldn’t just settle on one out of the many background ideas that were coming to me.

Here’s my take on this challenge:


My cards feature the Fantasy Floral Die from  Altenew. I used pink, orange, and yellow colors from the inspiration picture and used it on the background for the first card using Hexagon Dies from My Favorite Things. For the second card I used the tag dies that I bought online on some random website.

The white panel I used was cut from a Mama Elephant Creative Cuts die.

I used Altenew Fantasy Floral Die to cut the flowers for the main focal image. I used three different shades of grey for the flower on the bottom to create a shadow effect under the colorful flower created with the inspired colors.

I adhered the layers of the flower slightly offsetting from each other intentionally because I think this flower looks much better and fuller this way. Then, the flowers were popped up on foam tapes for extra dimension.

The sentiment is from the Adore You Stamp Set from Altenew. For the final touch I embellished these cards with coral and matte gray sequins.

I hope you will like these cards that I have created for the challenge. Please take some time to leave a comment. I love hearing from you all.

Thank you,

Jyoti
