Altenew 6th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 1 + Giveaway

Howdy! Lydia Fiedler here for the SIXTH anniversary party for Altenew! Can you believe it's been six years? I remember when they made their first HUGE splash in the industry like it was yesterday.

They are great people, and we are proud to be celebrating with them!

I came across this lovely combination frame and word die in their store, and fell in love. It's perfect for my clean and simple style!

I started with a slightly smaller card base than normal - the card folded is 5.25 x 4 - so card front size. 

Then I took the die and I die cut a piece of white cardstock, as well as a Gel Press print I made in high contrast colors. 

I was careful to keep all the little pieces from the openings in the letters to piece them back in. This is an easy one to paper piece because the frame is all one piece! So fun. The black cardstock makes it pop. When you're adding glue to skinny frames like this - DO NOT WORRY if you get glue on your card base. It comes off totally cleanly with an adhesive eraser


The cool thing about paper piecing is that it's a two for one technique! Once I had finished the card above, I had the colorful frame left over, so I repeated it on a white card and added a sentiment from this beautiful stamp set and some beautiful sequins to finish it off!

All the supplies I used are listed below along with a free shipping offer and a LONG list of prizes you can get a chance to win by leaving us a comment!

  180. Hi from California!
    I love the fact that you got two great cards at the same time! The black backing really makes the colors pop on the first card and I absolutely love the second card!

  183. Love that word frame die! And your gelly plate art work is wonderful. Like the idea of the two-for idea with this frame, too! Thanks for sharing your ideas with us here.

  191. Hello from California! I adore your Gel Print Paper on the card you created - I always get a little scared to try it myself but the patterns and colors you used make it look awesome! I agree, simple is often all that is needed on a great card - beautiful!

  193. Happy Anniversary, Altenew. You've really upped my cards with your artistic designs. But, it would never have been possible to layer my flowers without the MISTI. That tool has been a real game changer for me. Thanks to both of you for your amazing products.
