Video : Altenew January 2018 Release Blog Hop & Giveaway!

I always get so excited when Altenew have a new release and you will see why, they seriously have knocked this one out of the ball park!  To celebrate we are hopping along and you should have arrived here from the Altenew Card Blog.  Please scroll down for the video link and to find out how you can WIN!

I have made three cards and one video today, starting with the new Spring Shower Cover Die and how is this for versatility, I love it when a product does double duty,

I used some of the gorgeous Altenew Cardstocks as well as a white heat embossed sentiment from the Sweet Friend Stamp Set.

And what to do with the ‘left over’ flowers, well, make another card of course. So I used the Cube Cover Die to die cut the front panel of the card…

and for a sentiment hiding spot I added a circle from the Create-A-Wreath Die set.  Then I stamped a sentiment in Dark Chocolate from Birthday Bash.

My final card and video shows the new Peony Dreams 3D Die set,

I used Antique Silver to emboss a sentiment from the Birthday Builder Stamp Set.

My video today focuses on the Peony Dreams 3D Die, and I adore it!

  1. Stunning cards! Love all the layers on the first card and purple is my fave color, so love the last card. But the cube cover die is really stunning, so that card is my fave!

  2. Love, love, love all your cards and then I watched the video and REALLY fell in love with that peony 3-D die! Beautiful in grays and purples.

  3. All three cards are beautiful, Therese! I love how you played with the dies and all those fabulous colors….especially the Peony ~ WOW!!!

  4. Amazing Therese! I love this beautiful Altenew 3D peony flower and you have designed a card to showcase it so well. Your color choices are always spot on and today is no exception. I really appreciated that your video was “slower” or in real time so we could really see how you created the layers. Well done!

  5. Love each of your card!! These dies are so beautiful, love how you used them on your card. My most favorite one is the black die cut panel with those bright flowers, so so gorgeous. 🙂

I’m inspired by your designs and your use of color. Thanks!

  15. Beautiful cards! I love the color choices for that first card especially…the flowers just pop! The peony builder card is soft, subtle and perfect

  16. I love these cards. It’s nice that they are die cut layering instead of ink layering for a change. I really like that idea😊

  17. Wonderful card using that cover die – really like the look you achieved and the bonus of additional cards with the popouts! Thanks for sharing your creations.

  18. I love the look of both cards they are so unique as well and eye catching. I love how you used the background in black and added the flowers in color to make them stand out more. That is a very fun concept.

  19. Where have you been? I love the Australian accent! Can’t wait to follow ALL your posts. This is my first attempt to follow a blog hop! Love your colour scheme on these great dimensional flowers. Love the sparkle centre idea.

  20. I absolutely love you card and am really digging the peony builder set. It is so interesting and different. Plus it is big so it takes up a lot of real estate. Just all around wonderful. Thanks for the video showing how to use it. Super helpful

  23. Really beautiful cards! I’m so excited about how brilliant these dies are! They really did hit it out of the park! I love getting multiple looks and uses out of one die. At first I’m thinking well, the Peony Dreams was the best, but now I want them all! I love the Spring Showers die! Thanks so much for sharing your creativity!

  24. WOW ! Your cards are gorgeous ! I love your “way” of creating a second card with the additional flowers from your first card. And the peony dream card….. it’s so elegant, really it’s a fantastic card. The colors you’ve chosen are just perfect.

  25. Wow such fantastic cards! That first one has some really nice bold colors that look great together. The peony layered flower is so pretty and such a great die. The second cards from leftovers are really nice too.

  26. Wow, gorgeous cards! Love all these awesome dies, thanks for sharing different ones with your great card designs. Love the peony color combo, thanks for another great video.

  27. Oh Therese – LOVE all of your cards but am particularly drawn to the soft, understated greys with the hint of lilac and purple. Also love your silver glitter touches. Such fabulous products to work with – I’m an Aussie too and the postage is almost as much as the products, so I have to be very selective, but really love the new release. Too many MUST HAVEs in this lot. Thanks for sharing. Love watching you work. Bev from Sydney.

  28. These cards are delightful. They show such wonderful possibilities for working with the new release. tfs and offering a blog hop prize!

  29. Some of these cards look so complicated. I think you did a beautiful job coordinating colors. Great job using these great dies! I can’t decide which one I’ll get!

  30. Love these cards – kept thinking “this one is my favorite” – till I saw the next one! Sorry, Therese – they are ALL my favorites! No one does dies like Altenew – the Peony die HAS to come home with me – it’s so versatile. Love all of it!

  31. Therese, i came across your video tutorials on you tube just before Christmas, now i am addicted. My head is a whirl with all the ideas you have inspired. My Christmas cards turned out better than ever. Now 3D die amazing! Thank you from the West.

  32. Beautiful card. I love the colors you used. The possibilities are endless it seems. Thank you for your video and for sharing.

  33. Beautiful cards. Your peony card was very elegant using the gray and purple cardstock with a touch of glitter for the border. Thanks for sharing them with us.

  34. Wow, these are amazing, love the way you combine dies so effortlessly and get stunning cards, these are so beautiful.

  35. I fell in love with the 3D peony die as soon as saw it on the altenew blog, but you created an stunning card with it! Thanks for inquiring us with your work.

  36. Oh how I love the bold colors you choose for the first card. I’m going gaga over the layered peony die set. I enjoy seeing the different colors and designs each artist uses with the peony dies.

  37. Loving the new release! Thanks for showing the cardstock…haven’t tried that yet, such beautiful colors! Loving the new layering flower dies. Thanks for the video! 🙂

  38. Thanks so muchfor these lovely examples! I love the colors in the purple and gray–they really make a statement! As do all the other cards! I am sure I would not have considered the dark gray for the first card, but I absolutley love it. The “dull” colors really make the floral inlaid elements sing, don’t they! Thanks again. Great job with wonderful products.

  39. Amazing cards, and an amazing release! I can’t wait to order several of the new items. Might even have to check out the card stock, even though I was attempting to resist adding yet another brand of card stock to my stash.

  40. I love your cards. the first one i love on the dark background. And that peony….SWOON! I’m excited to try Altenew’s cardstock!

  41. No one does florals as well as Altenew. Your cards are beautiful sample of what can be achieved witht these dies. Thanks for sharing the technique video.

  42. I love all your cards the colors are great. I really like the purple and grey peony. I really like all the flowers Altenew uses.

  43. Love the combination of the grey and purple, I really never thought about putting those together. They are a beautiful combination for a flower. I will have to try that it made the flower just seem so elegant and breathe taking.

  44. These are great. I especially love the purple and grey one because I have been on that color kick lately also!!! Have a great weekend and thanks again for showing. I wish I had some money to put in an order for this release!!!

  45. What wonderful projects. Your combinations beautiful. I can’t wait until they are back in stock. Thank you for your time and talent.

  46. Great Cards. This release has so many options of doing something different with the same die. Love the Spring Shower die.

  47. I really really love the greys or is it grays( I never know) and the purples my favorite colors and I’ve never made a card with them. Now I will thanks for showing me its as beautiful as It is.

  48. I love the fact that the dies allow you to make something so beautiful just using plain colored cardstock! Love you cards, they are so beautiful!

  49. All 3 of your cards are stunning! I particularly like the peony dreams die! I ordered it right away knowing it was going to be popular! I love the color combination you chose!

  50. Good .Morning Therese. I just wanted to say i love your cards. The video is great to as its clear and concise. What a shame Altenew and the blogs in the hop dont give goods away in their giveaways as it’s not really beneficial for us to win $’s in the UK 😕 Brilliant prize though for Americans and Canada. Xxx 💕 xxx

  51. Oh my gosh Therese, you so ROCK! I love how you used the grey and green for your background with all the gorgeous color and dimension. I also love love how you used the panel die on your card front to see through! WOW!

  52. Thank you for sharing some inspiration from this wonderful release, Therese! My favourite is the card sing the Peony Dreams 3D die set, and I’ll definitely have to try making a monochrome version!

  53. Wow what a hop and what a release. You’ve done both justice with your three awesome cards. I like how the pops of colour in your first card just jump out at you, and the fact you could use the popped out flowers that were left over for your second card speaks volumes. Who doesn’t like to use up their scraps and leftovers! Your third card with the Altenew 3D peony flower stole my heart. Beautiful floral image and the colours you chose are so feminine. Thanks for sharing and inspiring.

  54. I just love everything you create even when it’s kind of cutesy and not quite my style, I want to make all three of these cards exactly as you did, love them!

  55. Therese – love all your cards (as usual) – your peony card is my favorite….so, so pretty & versatile. Thank you for the chance to win a gift certificate at Altenew!

  56. Wonderful projects! Especially love your use of the Spring Cover die. Thank you for sharing!

    Sammibug aka Samantha Houp aka Sammi

  57. The Spring Shower cover die is such a cool concept and I love the Peonies 3D die–your cards are delightful–the color combos are perfect!

  58. I think you “knocked it out of the park”, Therese!! I’m not sure which is my favorite as they are all great. Maybe the Peonies because I love purple. Thanks for the inspiration!

  59. This release is just amazing! The variety of dies is simply mind boggling! I love your inspiration cards. Especially the Peony Dreams one since that is my favorite die and I love the color combo you have chosen.

Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
