I’ve a fun post today looking at new layering dies and card kit from Altenew. This post is part of a blog hop (more details below) to celebrate the latest release of Altenew’s stamps and dies. The new release is available now at both Altenew and Simon Says Stamp. There’s more information on the blog hop below, but for now let’s take a look at what’s in the new release. I’ve linked all supplies, compensated affiliate links used.
Altenew Card Kit + Layering Dies
Here’s a closer look at what is included in the new Card Kit.
- Kit price: $45
- Thirty four cardstock die cuts
- Six 8.5×11 inch cardstock (Made in UK)
- Forty eight 6×6 inch pattern paper sheets (two of each design)
- Two alphabet sticker sheets
- 12 wood veneer frames
- 6×8 inch photopolymer clear stamp set (Made in USA)
- One gold glitter tape
- Frame die, hearts and stars die
- Enamel dots and hearts (4×6 inch sheet)
The layered dies are great to die cut and layer, but they are also fun to use as a mask to create a layered ink blended look. I die cut the Layered Floral Cover Die A from spare card and blended Coral Berry, Ruby Red and Warm Sunshine inks on to two pieces of Neenah Solar White card. Before lifting the mask I spritzed with gold sheer shimmer spritz.
I then die cut the Floral Cover Die B, lined it up with the ink blended pieces and blended Ruby Red, Grapevine and Warm Sunshine through this die cut with a heavier hand. This adds areas of shading and dimension to the petals.
I kept the rest of the cards really simple. For one card I die cut the Inline Alpha letters from white card to spell ‘You’ and stitched these to the panel before stamping the ‘amaze me’ from Floral Frame in Versafine Onyx Black ink to complete the sentiment. I then added a sprinkling of sequins to finish.
The beautiful gold shimmer is hard to capture but hopefully you can see it clearer in this photo.
Not to waste anything, I used the Layered Floral Cover Die A mask with the pretty inks spread all over it to create a quick and easy tag. To keep the theme I added a line of stitching and a few sequins before threading with black twine.
I die cut a heart from card blended with Coral Berry, adhered with foam adhesive and added a couple of layers of glossy accents. I also die cut the ‘Miss You’ using the Inline Alpha dies and added those too with foam adhesive. the finished panel is mounted to a side folding white card base.
