A few of my favourite Altenew things!

by Aimes

Hey!

Happy Friday! It's Aimes here today with a little card that combines a number of my favourite Altenew goodies combined with a splash of sparkle and a fun idea using the Doodle Blooms dies.

As soon as I laid my eyes on those versatile Doodle Blooms dies I knew I wanted to create a fun focal point using them. I simply die-cut them and arranged them onto a die-cut circle. This was so easy! I didn't separate the dies so I can use the negative die-cut piece for a future project too (watch this space!)

The Wood Pallet Background stamp set is a firm favourite with me and enables you to create on-trend backgrounds with ease and style. For a bit of definition I decided to heat-emboss the design with clear embossing powder. Then it was simply a case of placing the Doodle Blooms focal point to the centre and layering some of my favourite elements on top including a fitting sentiment from Label Love!

I always like to include a couple of top tips with my projects so here a couple if you decide to try this for yourself:

  • I used Stick It adhesive sheets with my die-cuts which makes adhering them a simple and easy process!
  • Double up on 3D foam pads or tape on the reverse of the focal point if using a mini peg to allow the peg to sit onto the card front
  • I have a thing for adding big twine bows to mini pegs but those bow tails can misbehave! Simply add a couple of tiny dots of Glossy Accents to keep them in place and still retain that fun, whimsical feel they add

Well that's all from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by today and  I hope you have a wonderful weekend! :)

Please do, it’s an awesome stamp that’s HUGE so it creates a big background to play with. :)
