Altenew - Inline Alpha Die - Bunny Love - Lostinpaper (card) 1 copy

I decided it would be fun to create a ‘faux embossed’ background using die cuts from the Inline Alpha Die set.  This little cutie is all dressed up for a party from Bunny Love and a glittery cupcake from Way Too Sweet.

Every time I looked at the Layered Cityscape Cover Dies I could only see a rainbow of buildings, so I just had to get that out of my system.

I did ‘stack’ a few of the die cuts on top of each other to add some dimension and the colouring was done with Tombows.

My final card uses the new Altenew New Day Card Kit and this is jam packed full of fun, I decided to create a video showing this kit and the process of making this card (as well as a quick peek at the kit).

  1. Placed my order at 9:01…been excited since you previewed the floral die in class!

  2. Your cards are truly amazing, Therese! Your bunny card is so sweet and I love all the fun colors you used on the cityscape! I also love your details on the last card…you really nailed it!!!

  3. Love the use of a frame on a card.I am happy to see the paper by Altenew as well. Also the cityscape is a must have for me. Thanks for all you do. Your cards are lovely & enjoy your tutorials very much.

  4. Oh my gosh Therese!!! I just love the paper pad you showed on your fabulous video, the paper is gorgeous but, what made me decide to get it is the fact that this paper is ONE SIDED!!!!! yeah!! I would have been really sad if all of those beautiful designs were also on the underside of this pages, that would have been just tragic, I just couldn’t bring myself to glue any of them to my cards.
    Beautiful kit indeed, thank you for sharing all of your wonderful cards and video.
    Maria Rodriguez.

  5. How do you keep coming up with all these unique ideas! It’s wonderful. I’m loving this new kit from altenew, too!

  6. As a lover of simplicity I am shocked to say how beautiful I find your multi-layered card from the kit. That patterned paper and your use of the flower center on the butterfly are just beautiful.

  7. Love all your inspiration, but the card you made in the video using the new card kit is simply fabulous!!!!!

  8. The paper pad, with the monthly kit, is absolutely gorgeous. To be honest, I don’t need all of the items in the kit, so I hope they release the paper, as a separate purchase in the future. Great cards, I love your videos.

  9. I enjoy all of your videos! You’re so talented and have a lovely voice that is pleasant to listen to. I always learn something from your videos!

  10. Great card projects. LOVE the white-on-white design in your HAPPY DAY card, and your colorful cityscape is awesome. Now I’m off to watch your video for card three… the that background looks gorgeous. TFS so much fun and inspiration.

  11. Fabulous cards! Enjoyed the video, too. It made me want to go check out this kit. Thanks for sharing!

  12. Loved your cards and the video. Altenew has done it again! These new dies and the card kit. I don’t usually buy card kits because as a scrapbooker and card maker I have so much of everything, but I think I might have to change that for this kit, awesome. Thanks

  13. That third card is just brilliant. I love that combination with the gold. Loving all these blogs and inspiration!!

  14. I just love your work! Thanks for the awesome YouTube videos (as I am completely addicted to YouTube videos for inspiration). Your other two cards are stunning too. Love the dry embossed panel with the alphabet!

  15. Beautiful cards. I like the way you colored the skyscrapers with the tombows. It gave them real dimension.

  16. Your first card is incredibly sweet! I like how the cityscape looks with the white outline, too.

  17. You made amazing cards again as usual Therese but the third card is incredibly gorgeous! Thanks for the video to show how you added all the little details to turn that beautiful paper into a stunning card! Who designed those marvellous water coloured paper by the way?

    1. I am not sure who actually designed this paper but I do know that Jennifer Rzasa has created many of the beautiful watercolours so I am wondering if it may be her? Thanks so much for visiting and for your lovely comments, Hope you have a great and crafty day, hugs Therese

  28. The way you used those die cut letters to make a dimensional background is just perfect. I thought I had enough letter dies, but I guess not!

Also the last card was very glamorous and love the color combo.

    The rainbow cityscape with the new layered dies seem to be calling my name 🙂

  56. Love your video – it was so fun! Your cards are beautiful and that is really neat that you colored your city. Sadly, I only thought about using colored card stock. This is smarter. Thanks for all the tips and info

  57. Wow it all looks great. Particularly love that paper pad and thank heavens it is single sided, I have to have to choose. So lovely to see patterned paper used, I do like watercolour effects but it’s everywhere and I love to use paper but it seems to have gone out of fashion. Lucky I don’t follow fashion then!

  58. Been loving your videos on youtube! I really like the letter background you made on the first card! I never would have thought of that!

  62. I really like your rainbow cityscape! Glad you had to make it and get it of your system! Thanks for sharing!

  63. Lovely, all, Theresa! the layering dies are amazing, but you sent me over the edge with the sentiment letters! LOVE how you ‘layered’ them!

  64. Awesome cards! Love the colors! That botanical paper is beautiful! Great Altenew release! Loving all the talent and inspiration here. Thanks for sharing yours!

  65. Gorgeous designs. Thanks for sharing. It was so clever to use the alphabet as a background.

  66. Wonderful cards and lots of great touches. I love the alphabet background on the first card, the colorful whimsy of the cityscape card, and the wonderful way you enhanced the frame on the third card. TFS.
