Curious to take a look at all the new products, click HERE :)

I have a lot of cards to show... so let's go !

On the first card I used the 3D Embossing Folder as a background, one of the flowers from the outline stamp set, colored with the 4 in 1 stencil set and cut out with the dies.

On the second card I used the outline stamp set as a subtle background, and colored one of the flowers with leaves and the decorative swirls as a focal point. Flower and leaves colored with the 4 in 1 coloring stencil.

The third card is a CAS design, just focusing on one of the lovely flowers from the set. Once again colored with the 4 in 1 stencil set.

The fourth card uses all of the elements from the outline stamp set. After stamping and die cutting, I popped the images up on the card base with foam squares and added a touch of color in the form of yellow flat back hearts.

The next card features the images simply stamped of grey card stock, cut out using the dies from the set and popped up on a black card base.

On the card below, I once again used the 3D embossing folder as a background for the floral arrangement.

The last card shows that the stunning 3D embossing folder, on its own, makes a stunning card. Here I used some textured card stock and just added a sentiment and pearls to finish the card .

Wow, that was a mouthful !
So glad you made it to this point, because now for the fun stuff... the blog hop and giveaway!

I had so much fun playing with this kit, and I can tell you the possibilities are endless! The coloring stencils are a game changer, especially to someone like me who is not too confident with coloring!
The 3D embossing folder made me say "wow" every time I used it. I am a huge fan of this kit and cannot wait to use it again... and again. I also love that the stamp set come in one piece. After you stamped it ,the coordinating die cuts out the complete stamped panel in one go ! It saves you so much time!

I hope you enjoyed looking at the examples I shared, and that you feel inspired!

Thanks for popping in ♥

Hannelie, I'm just loving your cards and all the different ways you have made this set shine. But, I think you know this - you 'had me' at every use of grey!

I love the embossed backgrounds and flowers!

Traci Starkweather said...

What incredible cards! I am surprised how much I love the black and white cards! I'm usually all about color and bling! The card with the acanthus in yellow on the white embossed card is my favorite! It is so elegant! I, too, love Altenew's layering stencils and embossing folders! They really are game changers for me!

Beautiful sets this month and your examples are so lovely. I can see the white on white as beautiful Anniversary or Wedding Cards.

Such a beautiful array of cards, Hannelie! The embossing is beautiful, but is even moreso when you add some gorgeous flowers.

Your cards are so fresh. The colors are gorgeous. I just realized as a newbie I love white space. Your subtle stamped background is something I aspire to learn. Thank you.
