Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 1 + Giveaway

Altenew Mandala Die. Card by @craftwalks. #card #cardmaking #altenew #mandala

Hello and welcome to Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 1. Can you believe Altenew is already 4? I still remember as yesterday their very first release and how I fell in love with Altenew seeing it. Since then there were so many wonderful products released. I’m amazed by wonderful designs and diversity of products the company carries. And I wish it all the best. Live longer and prosper!

You probably came from talented Nicole Picadura. If not – you may consider starting from the beginning at  Altenew blog and see what other members of Altenew design team and guest designers have created. There are so many beautiful projects from talented designers. Also you on each stop you you have a chance to win a prize.

MY TOP ALTENEW PROJECTS

We were asked to choose top 4 projects made using Altenew products. Which was a hard task for me. I’m very critical to my works. On the other hand I love Altenew designs very much and sometime you don’t really need to do anything – they will work on their own ;) With that being said – I definitely have more than four favorite projects. Let them be some of my most favorite ;)

The card on the left was made using one of the newest Build-A-Flower: Chrysanthemum. Black with gold and white is made using amazing Under Cherry Blossom Tree. Electric violet with lighting is done with amazing Rain Or Shine Set. And lastly the watercolor background over white embossing is made with With Sympathy Mini Stamp Set.

MANDALA DIE – THREE WAYS

I made three cards all using the same main product – Mandala Die. First I want to make a note that for all three cards I used Stick-It adhesive to adhere Mandala die-cuts onto a card. This is a sheet adhesive and with such intricate die-cuts I like using it, versus any other (for example liquid) adhesive. It’s much faster to adhere an adhesive sheet, then applying adhesive on all those intricate details. Also it’s very thin, so doesn’t add much thickness and doesn’t prevent from die-cutting all those details.

The first card design-wise is pretty basic and straightforward – just an adhered die-cut. Here I played with colors, combining Navy background with “bronze” die-cuts.

“Bronze” was made by blending Caramel Toffee and Paper Bag onto a white cardstock and spraying it over with Antique Gold Ink Spray. I die-cut the sentiment using a die from Script Words Die Set.

I also added gold spray splatters onto the background. And several Rose Gold Sequins finished off the card.

For my second card I went with less usual for me contamination – soft and light colors against gray background.

I blended Blush, Rouge, Cotton Candy, Fresh Lemon and Autumn Blaze onto a white cardstock before die-cutting the mandala.

And adhered it onto a Real Gray card base.

Popped up sentiment and several sequins finished off the card.
And after making the previous card I had left so many beautiful negative die-cuts so had to make another card. This die is one of those which have amazing both positive and negative die-cuts.

I simply die-cut another mandala out of scrap paper, placed it onto a white card base and inserted negative die-cuts into their negative spaces. I didn’t use all negative die-cuts, they’re so tiny, it would be too much even for me haha. But as you can see the shape I got is still beautiful and cohesive.

For the sentiment I went with white die-cut on white. Surprisingly it’s pretty visible and looks so gentle. A die from Script Words Die Set was used here.

Several Crystal Clear Sequins were added at the end to finish off the card.

    My preferred card for this bloghop is the one where you assembled all the diecuts and added a white diecut sentiment. I’m not into sequins personally but they do add some glimmer here, when I try adding them I’m never happy…
    For your best card I also love the violet Rain or Shine, that is such a great set and that card is the reason why I bought the set! Thanks for sharing.

    What great ways to use the mandala. I’ve looked at that on the website and admired it, but I didn’t know how to utilize if for a card. Thank you for the ideas.

      Thank you, Annette! I make videos very rare. They take me a lot of time since I’m a perfectionist in a body of procrastinator lol. And voice over takes forever too. But I try to write very detailed explanations of how my cards were made. If you click on the link for this card you can find a blog post for it.
      This card was actually very easy to make. I stamped clouds and inked them over. For the ground I used clouds as well. And the lightning is white embossed.

    Fantastic cards and I love all the color and simplicity yet able to wow someone. As far as the lighting, did you use the cherry blossoms branch? If so, amazing! I wasn’t sure about the mandala since even storing it would be tough, since its so big for my bins, but now I know I have to have it. Thanks for sharing!

I also like how real the lightening looks on your card. I can just hear the noise the thunder makes with the lightening. Your cards are amazing!
    Looking at your Mandela card I am so totally wanting a die cutter right now! Those cards are so amazing too! I see that you also used my favorite color in the whole wide world on a lot of your Mandela cards, yellow. I am amazed at all the talent on this blog hop, including you!
