Altenew Suddenly Spring Full Release
Here’s a closer look at the Stand-Alone Dies included in the Altenew Suddenly Spring release.
Mini Slimline Cards
I don’t use pattern paper often, but when I do I try to eliminate waste and leftovers. So, I thought outside of the box with the Cheerful Meadow 6×6 Paper Pack.
Instead of cutting the 6×6 pattern paper to A2 size, 4.25 x 5.5-inches, I merely cut it in half. This creates two 3 x 6-inch pieces of pattern paper which is perfect for mini slimline cards! Make two of the same card design or switch up your elements.
Mini Slimline Envelopes
Are you wondering what envelope to use for a Mini Slimline card? These mini slimline cards measure 3 x 6-inches and fit perfectly in a #7 coin envelope which measures 3.5 x 6.5-inches.
Use Your Leftovers
For this card, I used the leftover pattern paper piece from the first card. I simply trimmed it down with a circle die to remove the Circular Elements die-cut edges and matted it with white and black cardstock.
Isn’t the reflections die fabulous? Don’t forget to stretch the use of your dies by using the die-cuts as stencils and masks too. Or you can die cut a piece of fun foam and use it as a stamp. So many options.
Alcohol Ink On Deli Paper
Sometimes you just have to experiment and in this video, I’m playing with alcohol inks on deli paper. I’ve totally gotten into gel press printing and bought some deli paper for that. But, I wondered what else can I do with it, so here we are.
