($300 in total prizes)


Welcome to Altenew's Enchanted Winter Release. You should have found your way here from Seeka's blog, and the full blog list, as well as more inspiration can be found over on the Altenew Card Blog.

I love the Blooming Flower Bed Builder Stencils and the ease in adding different colors to the various kinds of floral elements in the set. I added the sentiment with the Tiny Sentiments: Wishing Stamp and Die Set.

I enjoy when Altenew coordinates stencils with the embossing folders, and the next two examples I have used the previously released embossing folders with the Stencil Sets that have been released. Above, with the help of the Embossing Folder, the Daisies seem to easily become 3 dimensional.

And with the Gentle Butterfly, it looks like I have cut it out and added it to the background.

With this release, Altenew has some new colors of Enamel Dots that are a fun addition to any card. To highlight the enamel dots as well as all the kinds of adhesives they carry, I created this card. I saw Yana do something similar a while back, with a stencil. I used the satin masking tape to create the background colors.

Here are some of the different kinds of adhesives that Altenew carries.
For my final example, I used the Happy Holidays 3D Embossing Folder on the top third of the background panel and then the Starry Patterns 3D Embossing Folder on the bottom, then used a Scoring Board to add some line definition on the edge. And you can't go wrong with the Poinsettia and Pine Stamp Set to finish this one off.

I am a little sad, this is the last blog (hopefully only for a little while) that I have been asked to participate in Altenew's releases. It has been really fun, and I am going to miss the opportunity to purposefully be busy and creative.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog.
