Altenew will draw 10 random winners from the comments left on each stop of this blog hop and announce the winners on the Altenew Winners Page on 04/02/2022.


Scalloped Frame 3D Embossing Folder



I embossed Gold Foil card stock with the folder and after adhering Sea Shore Washi tape to white card stock, I die cut it with the Circle Frame Hugs die and a circle die from my stash to create the thin circle frame. I finished it off with enamel dots from the Sea Shore Enamel Dots.



I inked the embossing folder with Buttercream Crisp Dye Ink and ran it through my die cut machine to transfer the ink to white card stock. I then used the negative pieces remaining from the previous card for the sentiment and added some yellow enamel dots.

Flower Bed 3D Embossing Folder


This card is super simple to make, I embossed patterned paper from the Wildflower 6x6 paper pack after heat embossing the sentiment in Obisdian ink and Crystal Clear embossing powder. Trimmed to 4"x 5 1/4" adhered to A2 card base and done!



These folders are great to use with any backgrounds you may have previously created but not yet used on a card. This background was created by picking up excess watercolor ink directly from a craft mat with watercolor paper.


I embossed the card front and then applied Enchanted Gold Pigment ink direct to paper by swiping the ink pad gently over the embossing. The sentiment is die cut from gold glitter paper from the Gilded Glitter card stock pack and the Fancy Hello die

The 6x6 size of these folders makes it very easy to use them on a scrapbook layout.


I inked 6x6 pieces of white card stock applying ink directly to the folder and then embossing the card stock, transferring the ink to the paper. I did this four times in the following ink colors:


I then cut the pieces in half on a diagonal, placing a different color in each corner of the 12x12 base.


I layered the other half of the embossed pieces together to create a photo mat for the photo, matting the photo on black card stock and then adhering to the layout base with Instant Dimension Foam Tape. I embellished with die cuts from the Branches and Berries die set.

Folktale Birds 3D Embossing Folder and Checkered Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder


This charming bird is the star of the Folktale Birds 3D Embossing Folder and I've added color with the Altenew 36 Pan Watercolor set on 9x12 Watercolor paper. After cutting the ovals with the Create a Wreate die set I inlay them within Cherry Wood embossed with the Checkered Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder and framed with Gold Foil cardstock.

I hope you've enjoyed these projects, thanks for stopping in!

You're next stop is Nichol Spohr.

Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit: Dynamic Blossoms Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)


 Thanks for joining me via Nenette S. Medero and your next stop is Preeti Chandran, you may want to start at the beginning and can do so at the Altenew Card Blog.

You've seen some amazing projects using the newest Craft Your Life Project Kit-Dynamic Blossoms and I'm thrilled to share some with you as well.


There are some really unique elements in this kit and I built a background with the some of the die cuts, just arranging the pieces on a white card front.

The image is stamped with Altenew clear embossing ink and then heat embossed with Rose Gold Crisp Embossing Powder and die cut with coordinating die.


While the vellum looks like it's been colored I have not added any color to it at all. 

I used the same dies for the following cards as the one above, inlaying the centre elements, red within gold and gold within red.



I inked blue card stock from my stash with Tanzanite Crisp Dye Ink and then used the large die to cut a focal element in the center.



I edged the die cut opening with Antique Gold Pigment ink and backed the opening with card stock from the Gilded Glitter card stock pack.


A white card front is inked via the 3D embossing folder-inking the folder and then running the card stock through a die cut machine. I then applied gold pigment ink through the kit stencil and then heat set with Crystal Clear embossing powder. 


It was fun to document my experience teaching at the first Craft Your Life Retreat with a craft your life kit!

I used both the layered stamps and stencils to add colour to the blooms and leaves.
