[Altenew] Meeting Washi Tapes and Cross Stitch Cover Die + Giveaway

Hi, all!
Hope you are having a lovely start of new day.
Today, I'm sharing my cards featuring some of Altenew's recent products.
I was so impressed by the fabulous patterns of Altenew's Washi Tapes and interesting texture from Cross Stitch Canvas Die, so I decided to make cards by combining both of them.



For my first card, I covered a piece of white card stock with Altenew Monochrome Washi Tape, which is 4.5 inch wide being perfect for A2 size cards. Then I created fine stitch patterns on it by using Cross Stitch Canvas Die


I diecut a big "Thanks" out of  Simon Says Stamp Gold Glitter Card Stock with Altenew Script Words 2 Dies, and I made 2~3 more diecuts out of white card stock to make dimensional script. I put the diectus top on top by using Multi Medium Matte.

Sentiment "For always being there" was chosen from SSS Big Thanks Word Stamp set, heat embossed in white on Dark Chocolate Card Stock. I added the sentiment strip by using Darice Adhesive Foam Strip




Finally, I adhered the panel onto A2 sized side-folded card base that I made using 110 Neenah White Card Stock, and I embellished the card with Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix




I used the same panel made with  Altenew Monochrome Washi Tape and Cross Stitch Canvas Die in my second card. 




Here I added floral images from Coral Charm Set giving them some dimension with foam tapes. I used gray and silver as main colors to maintain clean monochrome look and light green as a focal point for visual interest.  





Next, I turned to different washi tape. For my third card, I made a panel with Altenew Floral Flurries Washi Tape and Cross Stitch Canvas Die


Sentiment :  Cross Stitch Flower Stamp Set heat embossed in white on black card stock




Here is my last card for today !
The panel was actually made a while ago when I prepared March Release Blog Hop Cards and I decided not to use this green panel then for some reasons.
Finally I'm happy that I made it into card. 



This panel was made by no-line watercoloring of Mega Succulent Stamp Set using my Daniel Smith Watercolor Paints . For more information about making this panel, please read here
I simply ran it through my Big Shot with  Cross Stitch Canvas Die



Sentiment :  Cross Stitch Flower Stamp Set heat embossed in white on black card stock




I really love how the stitch patterns add visually interesting texture on the somewhat plain watercolored panel. 
I also love how the dimensions of Script diecut and sentiment strip look on the card.




Now, I have finished four cards and surprisingly it didn't take much time to make these all. As I made more cards like these, I really fell in love with  Altenew's Washi Tapes and Cross Stitch Canvas Die. I'll definitely make more of them. 
I hope you have also enjoyed today's post. 




Thank you so much for visiting and reading this today.
Have a lovely day!
Happy Crafting.

[Pretty Pink Posh] Sea Friends Card



Hi, Friends !
Today I'm sharing a summer themed card featuring Sea Friends Set from Pretty Pink Posh.



I stamped the images on Neenah White 80 Card stock with Memento Black ink, and colored them using copic markers. Next I cut them all using Sea Friends Coordinating Dies


I trimmed white card stock into 3.5 x 5.5 inch and ink blended the center using distress oxide ink Broken China. I adhered stamped images on the panel to create under the sea scene. I then foam mounted the panel onto Fog Gray Card base.  As a final embellishment, I adhered Sea Glass Jewels and White Pearl Jewels


You can get more creative inspiration from other design team members for this summer themed Sea Friends set on Pretty Pink Posh Blog.
