Hello Altenew friends! This is Virginia here. I am super excited to kick off the Lovely in Lace Embossing Folder and Stencil Collection release blog hop!
This release features some really artistic Embossing Folders and Coordinating Stencils. These thoughtfully-designed products will certainly make you smile while you craft. I have two special projects to share with you but first, let's take a quick look at the embossing folders and stencils in this new collection!
Watercoloring Fun with the Cherry Plum Blossom 3D Embossing Folder
First up! Now that it's springtime, this Cherry Plum Blossom 3D Embossing Folder really got me inspired! This card proves just how versatile that embossing folder can be.
I thought the watercolor look will be beautiful with this Cherry Plum Blossom 3D Embossing Folder and that's what I did. All you need are Soothe and Smooth Watercolor Paper and Artists' Watercolor 24 Pan Set. The dry-embossed textures and ridges are fantastic for watercoloring. To ensure the success of watercoloring, you must use good watercolor paper such as the Soothe and Smooth Watercolor Paper. Don't forget to use Altenew Watercolor Brushes (Round or Detailed) for better control of the watercoloring.To enhance the details, I highlighted the dry-embossed ridges of the blossoms with the Fine Liner Pen Set (size 01) and Metallic Watercolor 14 Color Pan Set.
Fun Plant-Themed Card with Hosta 3D Embossing Folder
My next project features Hosta 3D Embossing Folder.
This gorgeous embossing folder is any plant lover's dream. I started out by inking up the background in assorted green inks. I then ran the Classic White Solar White Cardstock with the Hosta 3D Embossing Folder.
With the Altenew ink blending tools (Mini and Small), I was able to highlight the Hosta leaves beautifully. Once it's trimmed to 4 1/2″ x 4 1/4″, I added the watercolored Itty Bitty Branches Die Set for colors and accents.
I added a strip of vellum along with the Congrats Die Set.
This square card is now perfect for any congratulatory occasion!
