Endless Ambition Collection

Ad 1

This exciting release is chock full of possibilities for every crafter. Hot foil plates with coordinating stencil sets are the focus, but we have also included some beautiful die sets. Feathers, flowers, greenery, and sentiments are sure to find their way to your projects this month. Lastly, Timeless Tulips (an exclusive retreat collection from July), will be available along with this release!

Endless Ambition Project Inspiration

Let's start with something bright and colorful featuring the NEW Layered Ornate Frame Die Set.

I love how dies and die-cutting work so beautifully together.  I used the Altenew Blends 6×6 Paper, but you can certainly use other patterned paper such as Enchanting Washes or Summer Garden.

Endless Ambition Collection Card ProjectI took advantage of the gradient paper and die cut each flower by following the guide on the package.

Endless Ambition Collection Card ProjectI started out by die-cutting the blue paper and then pieced the flowers around it. No guesswork was involved as the die does all the work for you.

Endless Ambition Collection Card ProjectAs an after-thought, I added the Brushed  Silver Metallic Cardstock for the oval frame.  It totally worked!

For the icing on the cake (so to speak), I added tiny gold dots for the flower centers and embellished the card front with the Green Fields Enamel Dots.

Altenew-Layered Ornate Frame Die Set-Altenew blend Paper-Silver Metallic Cardstock -002My 2nd project for the Endless Ambition Collection features the Curtain Leaves Cover Die.

This cover die can easily become your new BFF for crafting. All you need to do is die cut it, and you'll get something GORGEOUS instantly. 

Endless Ambition Collection Card ProjectAfter die-cutting, I applied Orange Cream, Forest Glades, and Warm Sunshine with some Ink Blending Brushes (Small).

How happy and cheery is this color combo?! 

Altenew-Curtain Leaves Cover Die-Bold Sentiment Stamp -002I love how the white-embossed Bold Sentiments Stamp Set can just complete a card.

This Curtain Leaves Cover Die can be used partially as a border or an accent piece. The possibilities are unbe-leaf-able!

Altenew-Curtain Leaves Cover Die-Bold Sentiment Stamp -002Little happy surprises (splatter, Metallic Thread, and Satin Gold Sequins) always make the card much more organic and interesting.

I hope my two card projects piqued your interest in this awesome release. Thank you for stopping by!Altenew-Curtain Leaves Cover Die-Bold Sentiment Stamp -003
