1 stamp set – 3 ways | Altenew April 2020 Release

Welcome to a fun blog hop! The April release by Altenew is here and we celebrate with an inspirational blog hop and lots of giveaways.

video tutorial

You can enjoy the video below or at my YouTube channel

close-up photos

For my projects today I went with 2 die cut panels that are so pretty, they are the Dog Rose panel A and the Dog Rose panel B. You can get them separately or as a bundle and can also be used together or alone. Below I have 3 card examples on how you can use these panels and how they would look in any combination.

card 1 – using both panels

For this card I combined both panels and used a “gradient layering die cuts” technique.

card 2 – using panel A

For this card I used only panel A and the “inlay die cut” technique

card 3 – using panel B

Finally, I went for a shaker card using just panel B

    These are all stunning. I cannot pick just one favorite. I ordered this die bundle as soon as I saw it, but alas, it was already out of stock. I think it will be worth waiting for and when I get it, I will watch this video again! Thanks and stay well!

    All three cards are great, but since you asked us to pick, I have to say I like the inlaid die cut card the best. I like to do the inlaid ones as well but struggle with the little pieces. Your idea of the glitter for the tiny pieces is the perfect solution. Thanks for the tip and the great video!! The Dog Rose Dies are really versatile and showing us 3 ways to use them helps.

    These cards are stunning! I love how you used the dies by themselves and together. I also thought it really neat that you used glitter to fill in some of the spaces. When I have tiny inlays to do I go crazy! This is such a great idea. Going to be using this on my next inlay card!

    Vicky for cards like your first card, try using sheet of sticky micro dots – so much easier than glue and no mess, Enjoyed the cards and video. I had really overlooked this product but you made it a must have; so, on my list to purchase it goes. Thanks for the tips and inspiration and the coupon – a bonanza!

    WOW. The gold is just incredible in this panel die. I didn’t think to use anything so bling for a main part of the image and I LOVE it! It’s modern and natural at the same time. thanks for opening my mind to a new idea.

    Wow! These cards are amazing. It’s hard to pick a favorite but I think I will go with the pink and gold inlay card. These dies are already on my wishlist because they were out of stock when I went to order them but you have given me even more ideas as to how to use these truly versatile dies. Thanks for the inspiration!
