Altenew March 2022 Whimsical Fairy Tale Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)

Welcome, my crafty friends and thank you, Tenia Nelson, for sending everyone over to my blog! For the full list, please visit the Altenew Blog. You can also find the full release here.

I just love 3D embossing folders!!! Technology has made it possible to make the designs look more 3D and this release does not disappoint. For this set of cards, I chose to use light and pastel colors. Take a look at the 4 cards I made below using some of the 3D embossing folders.

SO KIND… I’M TOUCHED BEYOND WORDS

STEPS:

  1. Wet the front and back of a Mixed Media white cardstock.
  2. Emboss using the Flower Bed 3D Embossing folder.
  3. Color the flowers and leaves using the following dye inks– Aqualicious, Hydrangea, Sand Dunes and Coral Berry using the wet on wet technique. Add more concentrated pigments for the shadows.
  4. Die cut a circle to form a window.
  5. Emboss the sentiment from the Inside and Out: Thanks stamp set on clear acetate and at the bottom of the die cut window.
  6. Assemble the card using foam squares.

I love how this card turned out. I wanted to create a set of cards using pastel colors to keep them light. The flowers in this card look so ethereal and delicate! And because the panel was big, I was able to create a second card.

TIP: Make sure to paint flowers/ leaves that are separated from each other to prevent the different colors of inks from blending with each other. Also, mist the front and back of the paper before embossing. This will give it a more crisp image and it will also prevent the paper from tearing.

STAY SAFE

STEPS:

  1. Trim the embossed panel to 2″ x 5.5″.
  2. Add a gold trim using Gold foil washi tape.
  3. Stamp the sentiment from the Pot and Plants stamp set on light blue cardstock and emboss with Pure White embossing powder.
  4. Assemble the card with foam squares and adhesive.

I kept this card clean and simple by using the leftover embossed image from the first card as a border. I love it when I can create more than one card using a single embossed image.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR FRIENDSHIP

STEPS:

  1. Cut different widths of strips from paper scraps.
  2. Adhere to a thin sheet of paper with adhesive.
  3. Emboss using the Scalloped Frame 3D embossing folder.
  4. Die cut a circle that will fit the center of the Scalloped Frame embossing folder then add pattern using the Fine Tulle stencil and dye ink.
  5. Stamp the sentiment from the Pots and Plants stamp set and emboss using a mixture of Fluorescent Green and Rose Gold embossing powder.
  6. Assemble the card using foam squares and adhesive.

I’M TOUCHED BEYOND WORDS

STEPS:

  1. Ink up the flat side of the embossing folder and emboss. Repeat using a 2nd color.
  2. Cut the panel to form the embossed circle.
  3. Stamp the plant image from the Pots and Plants stamp set on vellum and emboss with Rose Gold embossing powder. Die cut the image.
  4. Stamp the sentiment.
  5. Assemble the card with foam squares and adhesive.

The embossed circle acts as a frame for the plant image. I can imagine so many other possibilities with this embossing folder.

Oh my! What a fine collection of cards. All with such different techniques. Reducing the coverage of such an impressive embossing folder gives it a whole different look. The card background that you made with the strips and then embossed reminds me to use all those interesting bits of cardstock I’ve been collecting. Thank you for sharing.
