Hello Altenew friends! This is Virginia here. Welcome to the August 2022 Endless Ambition Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway. This collection will absolutely delight you and get you crafting instantly. We've got brand NEW stand-alone dies, hot foil plates, and coordinating stencils that will inspire you to create! Let's take a quick look at this new collection.
Endless Ambition Collection
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.
I took advantage of the gradient paper and die cut each flower by following the guide on the package.
I 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.
As 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.
My 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.
After 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?!
I 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!
Little 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!
