Creating cards with only dies! (Altenew Summer Adventure Stand-alone Dies Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway )

Have you ever tried creating cards with only dies? Well, the new Altenew Summer Adventures stand-alone die collection is perfect for doing just that! There is a fab new sentiment die set that covers many fabulous occasions. Both of these cards create interesting and stunning by either combining tone-on-tone texture or heat embossing with die-cuts.  Although these are pretty much created with only dies, I did use one small stamp sentiment – but you could easily use a sentiment die instead. 

You should have arrived here from the fantastic Tania Ahmed. You can always start at the beginning of the hop over at the Altenew Card Blog here.

Make sure you check out the end of the post for more details on the hop, along with your next stop!

Creating cards with only dies

Creating cards with only dies: add heat embossing

For this card, add Altenew Double-sided adhesive sheets to the back of white card panels. Next, die-cut the Peeking Leaves Cover die from these panels 3 times and adhere together. 

Creating cards with only dies

To heat emboss, cover the layered cover die-cut with embossing ink and heat set with WOW! Metallic Gold Rich pale embossing powder. Once complete, add this to a white cardbase. 

For the sentiment, use the All about you word die set to die-cut a sentiment out of black card 3 times. Again if you add the Altenew Double-sided adhesive sheets to the back before cutting, it will be easy to layer the die-cuts.  In addition, die-cut the shadow dies out of vellum. 

Add the sentiment to the card base and then embellish with a few Ebony Nuvo drops

Creating cards with only dies: add tone on tone texture

For this card, we create layers of texture to add interest to the card. To create the background, die-cut the Morrocan Lattice cover plate die out of white card and layer onto a white card base for tone-on-tone texture. 

Creating cards with only dies

For the focal elements, a die-cut a selection of the leaves from the Tropical Leaf Mix die set out of Seaglass and Tranquil cardstock as well as vellum. Layer these up with one another to create more tone-on-tone texture. 

Add the layered leaves to the front of the card along with a heat embossed sentiment from the Sentiment Strips stamp set. Finish the card by adding a few Cool Summer Night enamel dots to embellish the card.
