Altenew Winter Essentials Stand-Alone Dies Release Blog Hop & Giveaway + Video!

Do you get as excited as I do when Altenew has a stand-alone die release? Seriously these flowers and alphas made my day, and I just had to share 2 videos showcasing 2 of my faves. But first did you know…

We are hopping along to celebrate this fabulous release at Altenew so you should have arrived here from KELLY’s amazing Blog!

I am a bit partial to only using part of a floral die (pardon the pun), but these Jumbo Garden Picks are as fantastic as the ‘regular’ size. You can watch my video creating this card on IGTV HERE!

And today I only used 2 of the layers which gives them a totally different look.

Check out these Essential Sentiment Strips, I can’t wait to use the ‘negative’ pieces on a project too!

Next it’s time for a Christmas card. I made a wreath from the Mantel Decor set as my ‘O’.

and the fabulous combination of the Linear Pathway Alpha Solid and the Outline sets, which I adore!

And I adore them sooo much that I just had to use them in my video today.

With this jaw dropping Watercolor Garden Layering Die Set…. what can I say!!

The stamped portion of the sentiment comes from the Build-A-Flower: Primrose Stamp Set and I also added some Satin White Sequins.

  1. Oh Therese, these are just beautiful cards. The first “Just because” card is so pretty. I will need to start making a shopping list from this new release. So much to add to my shopping basket. Thank you for the wonderful inspiration ❤️

  2. Love this! It’s beautiful, but I was wondering if you ever masked off part of a sentiment and forgotten to remove the mask like I do! Lol!

  3. Wow, your cards are so beautiful. The watercolor garden die really stands out in your color choices. It’s all so lovely.

  4. Wow! Your cards are gorgeous- fantastic color combinations! I love those new Linear Pathway Alpha outline dies!

  5. Love the color combo for the flowers! So bright yet classy! I am always inspired to create when I view your projeccts! Thank You.

  6. Great cards here as always and very helpful info. The Essential Sentiment strip die will save me so many tears. Can’ tell you how many times I’ve tossed out a sentiment due to its imperfections and just could not put it on my card. This will be my first purchase. Thanks for sharing.

  7. I, too, get excited when Altenew releases new stand-alone dies (actually I get excited about every Altenew release, but dies are my favorites!), and this release is no exception. I love the Jumbo Garden Picks set and the design of these dies is genius!

  8. Beautiful cards! They are all so great that I can’t pick a favorite. I wasn’t crazy about the new alphabet but I love the way you used it on the last card. Thanks for sharing your designs and for another helpful video!

  9. I very much like the flowers and leaves from the paper pack. I think my fave. But all your cards are clever and lovely. As usual.

  10. Love the dies. Layering dies have been always a little intimidating to me. With the news die I Think I will give it a try.
    Beautiful cards!!!!

  11. The ‘just because’ card is my very favorite. Love the colors you used, the 2 layer type of flower and everything about the card!!

  12. Such beautiful cards. Love the “joy” on woodgrain paper.

    I’m with you on the etiquette of social media! Even though I don’t work full time I would rather be doing something else than be on my screen. 🙂 I’ve had facebook for a while but insta only a short time, I like insta better – it seems quicker and more direct but I’m still learning.

    When you start that adhesive group join me up – I have four tape runners on my desk at the moment without any other glues https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/Boa7UAb8KLZioVr0O_jpy3GrP_Kn9ZC1SgJIlhNzO8IW839VBjHHfwuLd7OnoILXa1umVA=s113

  13. Fantastic cards. I love the pink layered rose. The Birch paper JOY card is so pretty with great dimension. I appreciate all your videos, especially the ones for layered stamps and dies. These sets scare me but when I see how they are used, not so scary! Thanks.

  14. Your cards are amazing as always Therese! I’m loving the idea of only using partial die cut pieces for a clever different look! I don’t any of the layered flowers, but I think this new release might be the one!! Thanks so much for the wonderful inspiration! Take care! 🙂

  15. I’ve never met a layering floral due set from Altenew that I didn’t love. This one is utterly fantastic. Loved the cards, the YouTube and can’t wait to see the Instagram video.
    Cheers
    Lisa

  16. Gorgeous cards Therese! Another die set to put on the list. Sometimes I wish Altenew would
    stop having these great new releases. No….I don’t really.
    Thank you for the inspiration.
    T x

  17. YOu just sold me on those Linear Pathway Alpha Outline… I have nothing like it and I love it. You made a beautiful card with it. Such talent. I so enjoy watching your videos….you make them fun.

  18. wonderful Therese. Love both of these ginormous flowers. And adore the IGTV video.. Great idea to just use a few layers.

  19. These cards are gorgeous and show off the new products so well! I have never tried the layering dies, but these 2 new ones are definitely on my wishlist now!

  20. WOW! Your designs are amazing! I adore the balsa wood looking card with the Joy sentiment! How creative! And the garden picks die cards! OH MY GOODNESS! FABULOUS!!!! Sorry, I am shouting but they are so great! Excited to see your video tomorrow when I am rowing! You are just the design queen!

  21. Each card is so beautiful: the different elements and techniques you used. They all are really captivating. TFS!

  22. Love the simplicity and organic feel of your wreath filled joy, Therese … and that final floral card is just so striking and gorgeous! I don’t do social media at all … though managed to see you create that first beauty (without being part of instagram – can look, can’t comment!) … it’s a stunner in all it’s patterned paper loveliness! Hugs, Anita 🙂

  23. Spectacular cards!
    Very creative using the wreath for the O in Joy.
    That card is my favorite out of all of them!
    Thanks for sharing.

  24. Lovely cards! All so different and inspiring. The JOY card is my favourite – simple but so unique. I will certainly be looking to buy some of the die sets from Altenew to add to my growing stash of their layering flower stamps. Thanks 🙂

  25. Oh, la lahh. The light pink (partial) die card really caught my attention and I did wonder…. “Therese”?, lol. It is absolutely stunning. All your cards today are beautiful. Have you ever made a card that wasn’t anything less?, lol.

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