And for something a little different I stamped a quick background with the beautiful Courageous You Stamp Set.

I framed it using the Circled Greetings: Hugs Die and added a couple of Antique Gold Sequins.

25 thoughts on “2 Floral Border Die Ideas and More with Altenew’s Video Hop Release!

  1. The video cards are both super stylish. I think the raised pink bits add to the card, so all your effort was worth it. Also, don’t stop using the Apothecary labels. They always look great.

  2. How could our crafty world be complete without another bicycling bear? lol OH is he a cutie, Therese! Love the shirt with his jaunty bow tie, and chapeau!
    Off to watch these dreamy cards come true…
    =]

  3. Absolutely love the bear. He will put a smile on my face as I stamp him, I know that, so he’s a ‘must have’. I wasn’t going to buy the border die, but there you go, you’ve done it again and I just have to have it as I simply love the grey and white card. It’s so elegant. I just adore the simplicity. I already have the circle word dies, so I’m prepared to try out your second card too. Thank you once again Therese, always love what you do and your always an inspiration.

    1. Thanks so much Delia, I think the bear is wonderful, and a stamp layering set too which makes him even cleverer! I think a set of the ‘grey and white’ border die cards would be amazing especially in a variety of colours and sentmients as a gift set!

  4. That bear is so sweet, Therese! I’ve been looking at the Floral In N Out die wondering if I should buy it. I think your cards just sent me over the edge!! Thanks for the push!

  5. Oh, isn’t he a handsome chap, Therese … and so cute cycling along with his celebratory balloons! That hugs card is wonderfully dramatic and striking … and soooo stylish! As for your video cards … goodness, you have the patience of a saint to do all that trimming and inlaying … and I’m so pleased you have because it’s so rich and gorgeous! Love, love, love the white over grey … it’s simple, elegant, chic … and my absolute favourite! Hugs, Anita 🙂

    1. I am loving the more minimal design and could picture it in a multitude of colours and made into a set of gift cards… when I have a spare few minutes I may just do that. thanks so much Anita!

  6. Now who wouldn’t love a bear on a bike with balloons? (sounds a little like an alphabet puzzle the kiddos had!! haha). Loving the black/white/gold and the grey/white combos. 🙂

  7. I cringed a little bit when I saw all those tiny pieces of card stock that you inlayed back into the die, but it looks AMAZING!!!! Wonderful color choices. You always make me smile with your videos.

  8. This is such a great technique to help us stretch our dies. The first card looks so elegant, and pretty easy to do (as long as the die cut machine cooperates of course 😀)

    1. Yes, I totally hear you, though I have much better results since I’ve started using the Gemini Junior, it’s been wonderful. But I would never give up my Bigshot, the manual machine is great for techniques etc. Thanks so much Olive!

  9. Beautiful cards Therese. Think you need some Press-N-Seal for all the little bits!
    Keep well.

    1. hahaha it’s in my cart (again) problem is I’ve been ‘panic’ buying the Copic refills for the colours I have so I am feeling a little guilty about spending more money right now lol.

  10. Wow. From adorably cute to gorgeously elegant, you covered it all with these amazing cards.

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