Create Custom Color Card Stock For Layering Dies

By | 07/02/2019

I’ve had Altenew’s Rose Flurries 3D Die set on my wish list for almost two years!  I finally splurged when I saw they created a creativity kit and it was part of the bundle.

Altenew bundles products into Creativity Kits that they release weekly with a set of instructional videos that you can purchase to get your creative juices flowing.  This particular kit came with the 3D die set, the Mega Thanks Die, and the New Me Stamp Set at a  really good price point and I had a 10% off coupon.


I created a card for this week’s Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge using this die set, the thanks die and the dotted scales cover die that I also recently purchased.Create custom colored card stock for layering dies

How pretty is that rose?  I created my own colors of card stock using my favorite set of blues from Altenew by swiping the ink pad across white card stock.  The color evens out as the ink dries.  I was able to use the 4 inks that Altenew put together in a set to create 4 card stock colors that would layer together.  I did the same with the 2 layers of the green for the leaves.

The thanks die is embossed in Antique Gold embossing powder to give a beautiful shiny metallic element for my card.Create custom colored card stock for layering dies

That background piece is created from Altenew’s Dotted Scales Debossing Cover Die.  Isn’t it a nice subtle background.  I wanted something a little more than just a plain white mat and I think that adds a really elegant touch.

I’ve created a video to show you the details and how-to for making each of the elements in this card:

You can see from the photo below that it takes “a village” or a good stash of supplies to create some cards and this was one of them!
