Altenew Plentiful Patterns Stand-alone Dies/Stencils Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)

Hello friends! Who doesn’t love a good pattern?! Well I’m so pleased to be joining in with Altenew celebrating their latest collection of dies. These can be stand alone or combined together (as you’ll see in some of my projects). You might have come here from Carol Hintermeier’s blog and if you want to start at the beginning, hop over to the main Altenew Card blog.

(Following links are affiliate ones that earns me a little extra but with no cost to you.)

These two sets are just stunning! I’ve used the Impressionist Bouquet Layering Stencil Set with the Impressionist Bouquet Die Set and combined it with the You Matter Die Set. I love these sets so much. The stencil is easy to use with inks- I used Distress Inks and some plain cardstock to make stripes.

The scripty you is such a beautiful font! The next set I’m showcasing is Itty Bitty Flowers Die Set along with You Matter Die Set. I’ve used black glitter cardstock plus some matt mirror cardstock. Using grey and black for the flowers gives a subtle look. The sentiments that go with the ‘you’ in the You Matter die set are just perfect for so many occasions.

My final project is using the Pattern Motif Die Set and the sentiment is from the Folk Art Stamp Set

Creating it is simple. I just layered up lots of scrap pieces of cardstock together on a piece of cardstock. Die cut the floral image onto a larger piece of cardstock and use the negative die cut over the top using foam pads.

Then layer the flower over the top and then the stamped sentiment on top of that. It’s a very classy and elegant image.

If you want to check out the whole release, follow this link to see all the different dies.

Buddy Greeting & Being inventive!


Hey!! This is a fun card in response to the Gallery Idol challenge at Paper Crafts Connection
The task this week was to create a card using a household object. I’d had the idea to use ear buds and colourise them. Simple to do- just dilute some dye ink ( I used a drop from my refills) with a tiny bit of water. Soak the tips on the colours and leave overnight to dry on some absorbent paper ( I used kitchen roll). The hardest bit was getting the Prima stickers to remain on the ear buds! I do love the fun element to it- and the rainbow colour scheme is back. Just happy, happy, happy!
I’ll be back soon with a few of the Fathers Day cards. My kids had a ball making them. I really enjoy watching their creative process and inventiveness. They just won’t take the products how they’re designed- they’ll chop them up, adapt them and change them. I really have to resist the urge to ask them to make something straighter or line it up.
Today ( Father’s Day) was lovely but disastrous on the food front. Tried to make Banoffee pie which is really not hard- but I didn’t manage to boil up the condensed milk in good time so thought I’d do it directly in the pan. I had to whisk it that vigorously that I ended up with a blister on my hand ( I kid you not!!). Sadly the caramel was more toffee than banoffee. It wasn’t that pleasing to eat which was mortifying when all the ingredients were just yummy. Definitely a case of the thing not being greater than the sum of its parts!


Better run- have some ironing to do. See you when I’ve located some decent value school blazers! ..
