Altenew Love & Friendship Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Collection Release Blog Hop & Giveaway!

Do you like to make fun backgrounds? Today I have 2 very different backgrounds to share with you that both started out as a simple piece of cardstock!

This post is part of a Hop celebrating a new release from Altenew so you should have arrived here from the KAREN’s fabulous Blog, and there are lots of new wonderful goodies to play with! I started today with a very clean and simple design.

These Tall Alpha Lowercase Dies were calling my name and I thought they would look great used in a ‘negative’ way lol.

I love the Ink Blending Tools from Altenew, it literally took me about a minute to make this ombre blended background!

Then I added a single flower and a subsentiment from the Tall Foliage Stamp Set.

My next card is quite ‘busy’ I created a watercolour flower background using these Fresh Cut Roses with the Watercolor Brush Marker Refills.

Then I ran it through my die cutting machine with the Organic Linen 3D Embossing Folder (ahem… LOVE!) and added some Ink Spatters.

And finally I used the Waterbrush Hello Die with a subsentiment from the Hello and Hugs Stamp Set.

  1. Do I spy, with my little eye, my next embossing folder? Could be!
    I’ve always said ‘you have to accentuate the negative!’ – fabulous backgrounds, my friend!
    =]

  2. I love the simplicity of your first card with the bright color combination. I love your colors on the roses and the texture from the embossing folder. I wouldn’t have thought of doing something like that…I am inspired!

  3. Beautiful cards as always! I’ve noticed through the blog hop that many design team members did a simple black image without doing a lot of coloring. As much as I am always awed by the incredible coloring that people do, I know it’s out of my creative zone so love when I see simple and clean designs that are more my style! Thank you for the inspiration!

  4. I absolutely LOVE the card with the grey background! I would never have thought of using those colors! Stunning~!

  5. LOVE the texture of the new linen embossing folder– it works so well with your colors. Already ordered and on its way to my home. There goes my New Year’s resolution! How could I not buy new craft supplies????
    ps—don’t tell my husband!

  6. The first card is so elegant in it’s simplicity and then along comes the second card with the great big WOW factor. Embossing it with that awesome linen folder takes it to new levels! I’m convinced! I need that folder! LOL

  7. Wow! So pretty! The second card is amazing! I love the bright colors and the texture of the Organic Linen background!

  8. Your cards are always wonderful, Therese! I love the simplicity (and colors) of the first. And those bold colors on the second with that EF – LOVE!!

  9. Beautiful cards Therese! I really like the first card as I do love to make backgrounds. I love simple, but beautiful card ideas 🙂

  10. Wow. Stunning blending on that beautiful blue/green card. Just love the simple layout. AND that texture from the embossing folder was a brilliant idea. So amazing.

  14. Wow! Stunning Therese! Love your ink blending and the wonderful effect of the EF reminds me of some linen fabric! Great change to the image! Thanks for the ideas!! Now to give them a try!! 🙂

  15. Love both cards! I really like the blended background on the first card. Paired with the simple bloom this background makes one fabulous card!

  16. Wow! Using the organic linen folder on the blooms makes the entire card front look like stitched fabric. What a neat technique!
