ALTENEW: JUNE 2022 FINE AND DANDY COLLECTION BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY 

($300 in total prizes)



Hi everyone!  
Hope you are having fun if you are participating in the hop. You should have come from Laurie Willison, Amazing, right? You can find the beginning of the hop here if you wish to go back. 

There are some great new products, and I'm sharing some cards that I made with some of the products in this release.

Products used:

Exquisite Marble Hot Foil Die
Inline Leaves Die Set
Birthday Greetings Stamp Set
Obsidian Black Ink

This card was pretty simple to create. I hot foiled the Exquisite Marble die with some copper foil and then foiled two more panels with the copper foil. I used the Inline Leaves die to cut a leaf out of one of the solid panels and then adhered the other to a white card base. Stamped the sentiment and layered it up on a piece of the leftovers parts from the leaf panel.



Products used:

Fancy Enjoy Die
Mix and Match Frames Die Set
Hanging Garden Die Set
Diamond Stars 3D Embossing Folder
Build- A- Flower: Belladonna Lily
Artist Marker Refills
Bamboo Crisp Dye Ink
Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder
Embossing Ink
Instant Dimension Foam Tape







I used the Artist Marker refills to color a piece of photo paper. If I were to guess on the colors, they would be- Bamboo, Azurite, and Aqualicious (I failed to record the colors) I rubbed Bamboo Crisp Dye ink over a piece of cardstock big enough to cut the Fancy Enjoy Die from, let it dry and cut it out, along with one in white. Cut out the Hanging Garden Die from black cardstock and adhered it to the alcohol ink panel then used some scissors to cut it out. I embossed a white panel with the Diamond Stars Folder, Cut a frame from some black cardstock and layered everything up on a white card base. Stamped the sentiment with embossing ink on black cardstock and white heat embossed it. Used the Foam Tape to pop up the Frame and sentiment.



Products used:

Freesia Hot Foil Plate
Freesia Die
Freesia Simple Coloring Stencil
Fancy Enjoy Die
Buttercream Crisp Dye Ink
Citrus Burst Crisp Dye Ink
Grass Field Crisp Dye Ink
Espresso Crisp Dye Ink
Mini Blending Brushes
Instant Dimension Foam Tape






I hot foiled the Freesia flower onto a cardstock panel and took the negative and foiled it onto another panel. I then cut the negative panel out using the Freesia Die. I used the Stencils and colored in the flower with the inks and some Mini Blending Brushes. I adhered the Freesia panel to a white card base. Adhered the foiled cut out panel onto the card with the Foam Tape. Cut the Fancy Enjoy Die from some white cardstock and adhered that to the card.




Products Used:

Scallops Cover er Die
Brushed Rose Metallic Cardstock
Mighty Alphabet Dies
Mega Greetings 2
Double Sided Adhesive Sheets
Golden Peach Crisp Embossing Powder
Embossing Ink









I cut the Scallops Cover Die from the Brushed Rose Cardstock as well as one from black cardstock. I used a piece of the Double Sided Adhesive sheets to adhere the black frame to a white card base. then filled in the Brushed Rose Cardstock pieces into the frame. I cut the "Happy" letters out three times from some black cardstock and adhered them together with some liquid adhesive and then to a piece of velum. Stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it and adhered that to the velum panel. Adhered the velum to the card with a little liquid glue along the edges. Not my favorite application, I like to wrap the velum around the panel before its adhered to the card. But, I was not sire what I was doing when I began this card.


Products used:

Delightful Flowers Hot Foil Plate
Craft Your Life Project Kit: Dynamic Blossoms (Dies)
Brushed Rose Metallic Cardstock
Instant Dimension Foam Tape
Golden Peach Crisp Embossing Powder
Embossing Ink









I hot foiled the Delightful Flowers plate onto the Brushed Rose Cardstock. And can I say BEAUTIFUL! sometimes the cardstock that is used is tricky to get it to foil well, but this was amazing. I cut the "you" three times from some gray cardstock and adhered them together with some liquid glue, and then to the panel. Stamped and heat embossed the sentiment and adhered that to the panel with the Foam Tape and then adhered the panel to a gray card base. Easy Peasy!
