Another entry into the stretching your supplies series - Dies
Hello and thank you for stopping by. Today I am taking part in an Instagram Hop celebrating all things Altenew Educator Program. I became an Altenew Educator in March of 2019 and I consider it to be a real milestone in my crafty journey. To celebrate all the inspiration of the Altenew Educator Program, I am joining my fellow educators in sharing some inspiration from our favorite classes from the program. I chose Creative Coloring with Artist Markers. In the two cards I made today, I used alcohol ink and not the actual Artist Markers to make a really cool background.

Altenew Floral In n Out Border Die
Dies are expensive! One way to get that cost down is by using your supplies in many different ways. Today I am going to share how I am using the Altenew Floral In n Out Border die two ways! In one example, I will be inking a background, allowing the white die cut to pop off the card. The other example is inking up the die cut itself. In this post, I use affiliate links.

Using Scraps to make cards
I recently met a crafty friend on line and we met up to craft together. She introduced me to a great Birch Press Layered die, Adora. I’ve loved Birch Press dies but just hadn't ever used them so I quickly grabbed three colors of paper out of my scrap stash and die cut them. The Adora die has a repeating heart pattern and after I cut out the patterns, I was left with all these colorful hearts. I didn't want to waste them so I decided to make some cards but needed white as a neutral to go with my color palette. I grabbed the Altenew Radial Hearts cover die which has a repeating heart pattern and cut out a piece of Neenah solar white. I saved all these heart pieces and decided to use them on a card. Well I ended up making 5 cards and would like to explain how I made them using dies and leftovers. Please read on and note that affiliate links are used in this post.
