Hello Friends! "Plentiful Patterns" is definitely the theme of the latest die release from Altenew, and to me that's the most useful type of die around. Anytime you can add some pattern to your projects is usually a big win. These are the dies I reach for in my collection over and over again.
My first card starts out with several patterns ... on the new Bountiful Butterflies stencil and die set!
The butterflies have landed on some sentiments strips, made from the left over middles of the Mix and Match Frames Die Set.
The die cut stripes make for a really great panel for putting your focal point on. It's something a little different, but not "odd" different, if you know what I mean
Here's a card using the same butterflies, only this time they have landed on two background panels from the Mix and Match Frames Die Set with a pattern stenciled from the Brick Rosette Stencil Set.
Not wanting to put the stencils away after I used them turned out to be a good thing, as i was in the process of die cutting the butterflies when I realize the stripes from the Brick Rosette Stencil Set would look just as good on the tips of the butterfly wings.
Of course I have to adhere the butterflies down the middle so their wings can be bent up. Easiest way to get dimension ever!
In addition, I've only used a small portion of the die, which is nice because with a die this large you can switch up which portion of the pattern you're using and still keep the design fresh.
Finally, the new Wave Form Cover Die is one of those great background builders, where once you make one background, you automatically have the ingredients to make another 4-5 more backgrounds!
I selected a patterned paper for one of the layers to spice it up a bit. Sentiment from alpha dies layered with a phrase from the You Matter Die Set.
It's great having all of these cards ready to go!
