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 08/29/2022.

My first card used the Flowery Bouquet Hot Foil Plate and matching stencil.
I haven’t had my hot foil machine that long but I do love the professional finish that it gives and Altenew is bringing out so many lovely plates!

The stencils are great when using the blending brushes to get a soft gradient. I like to add some of my own details with a fine black pen.

For the shadow I used the left over hot foil so that it would match the outline and 3 layers of black cardstock.

The main sentiment is from the Well Read Sentiment Stamp Set. It is one of my favorite quotes. (I am a big Anne of Green Gables fan. 😍)

I love a good cover die and Curtain Leaves Cover Die has got lots of potential.

To make this card I cut several strips of textured cardstock and lay the cover die over them. I used some leftover strips and lay them down horizontally so that I could use the Sweet Sentiments Hot Foil Plate and coordinating Die Set.

This was probably my favorite card that I created for this release.

I loved the Rainbow Burst Hot Foil Plate and was very excited to use it.

There are so many wonderful foils that you could use with this plate but I just chose a gold foil for this card.

I wanted to create an ombré effect using Frosty Pink, Coral Berry and Grapevine from the Red Cosmos Crisp Dye Ink Set.

With the first stencil I started my ombré in one direction and then reversed it for the second stencil. And for the final stencil I also used the Intricate Mandala Stencil with a combination of Frosty Pink and Coral Berry.

The card was completed with the celebrate you from Sweet Sentiments Die Set and also One-Go Birthday Greetings Stamp and Die Set.

Thanks so much for dropping by. Reiko Tsuchida is your next stop on the blog hop and I know that you will love what she has created.

Until next time, keep creating!

  1. All your cards are lovely but I agree with you in that the Rainbow Burst one is my favorite. I love the color combination of that one and also the added stenciled pattern to one of the swirls.


  2. I enjoyed your cards so much. It is amazing how everyone of you on this HOP did something different. It gives me, someone just starting a sense of OK supplies are expensive but look at all the different ways they can be used. Thank you

  3. Great cards! My favorite is the leaf cover die card- such simple but great idea to vary the colors behind the die.
