Altenew Dies and Floral Arrangements for wall decor

Hello again. Thank you for visiting my blog. Today I am here with something other than greetings cards.

Sometimes my mind is debating whether I should do this or that.  This usually happens when I have so many new products to use and so many ideas in my head.

When my daughter texted me and said she needs something to decorate her wall in her newly moved apartment, I knew exactly what my next project was gonna be. I got at it right away. And here is the outcome.

I took out my new dies that I bought from Altenew and started die-cutting. My daughter wanted purple flowers so I took out the three different shades of purple that I had and started on working on building the purple flowers using Peony Dreams Die.

I thought just Purple flowers won’t look good on the arrangement so I decided to introduce few more colors into my project.  I created one pink flower using the same die. Since it was a large flower I thought just one would be perfect.

Next I needed some filler flowers. But Peony Dreams die only had large flowers so I used the Rose Flurries 3D dies

I die cut some large roses with that die in white. But then the white layers were not showing so much so i colored them with copics with two shades of light green. Added three green roses in the arrangement.

Added some die-cut leaves in green and black and at last added some tiny flower cluster in pink and called it done.

I made 4 of these arrangements slightly altering the positions of the flowers in each.

My daughter loved it. She’s going to frame it and decorate her wall.

I hope you liked it too. Let me know what do you think in the comments down below.

Valentine’s Day Card #2 featuring Altenew Flurries 3D die

In case you guys must be wondering what I did with the negative piece of the red panel that I cut with the word “mine” from my previous card, I made another card with it.

I layered it with another white cardstock cut to slightly smaller than 4.25 by 5.5 inches.  Behind the openings of the word cutout I layered a special paper made in Nepal called Nepali kagaj.  This paper is handmade in Nepal using fibers from trees. You can see the texture of the paper in the picture.

 

I had some leftover flower die cuts from the previous card I made. The Rose Flurries 3D dies comes with 5 different flower shapes.

The word “YOU’RE” is from Concord & 9th stamp set. Stamped in Black Archival ink from Ranger and die cut in a rectangle with one of the Spellbinders die set.

The card was pretty as it is but I thought I could never go wrong with adding some clear jewel drops.

So here’s my 2nd card done. I hope you liked it. Don’t forget to comment below. I love hearing from you.

Love

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
