Hello Altenew friends! This is Virginia here! After traveling in Asia and Europe this early summer, I am so happy to back here to share my Altenew projects! Today I want to explore the possibilities of Layered Blossom Cover Die with you. These well thought-out cover dies give you instant satisfying result every single time.
This set of dies have just the right amount of space and opening. If you can do simple die cutting, you will not be disappointed with the results that you achieve. Like most Altenew Cover Dies, you can use each cover die (whether it's A or B) alone or both. My examples will illustrate and help you see the versatility of these cover dies.
For my first card, I used the Cover Die A and Cover Die B. To get the colors to my liking, I inked up each small area with a small sponge. I love color-blending with Altenew Inks. The inks used here are Pocketful of Sunshine Oval Set, Warm and Cozy Oval Set, Tropical Forest Oval Set and Sea Shore Oval Set.
To prevent the colors getting into the other unwanted area, I used some small scrap paper to cover up as I sponged along. This may seem tedious, but it really is well worth the effort. Can you believe that this card requires zero stamping? The sentiment are from the Inline Alphabet Die Set and Script Words Die Set.
The 6×6 Reflection Paper Pad comes in handy as I used the paper for the word “love”.
My Next card shows how you can use the delicate Layered Blossom Cover Die A to create an intricate design.
To keep the color scheme simple and elegant, I applied the new Deep Blue Seas Oval Set and used each shades of blue to its full potential.
My last card is all about the Layered Blossom Cover Die B.
You may not see it clearly, but the Crystal Clear Crisp Embossing Powder was used here.
Not only the embossing powder makes this project shine, it also blocks off the pink/orange and blue. Again, there's no stamping involved. The “thanks” sentiment is from The New Day Card Kit.
I truly hope these 3 cards give you some inspiration and that you can maximize the use of each/both cover dies. You definitely can apply the same principal to all of your Altenew cover dies. Thank you for reading this long post. See you soon again!
