Welcome to a fun blog hop! The April release by Altenew is here and we celebrate with an inspirational blog hop and lots of giveaways.
You can enjoy the video below or at my YouTube channel
For my projects today I went with 2 die cut panels that are so pretty, they are the Dog Rose panel A and the Dog Rose panel B. You can get them separately or as a bundle and can also be used together or alone. Below I have 3 card examples on how you can use these panels and how they would look in any combination.
card 1 – using both panels
For this card I combined both panels and used a “gradient layering die cuts” technique.
card 2 – using panel A
For this card I used only panel A and the “inlay die cut” technique
card 3 – using panel B
Finally, I went for a shaker card using just panel B

Beautiful florals as always!, My favorite was card 2 with inlayed die cutting….really elegant, especially with the added glitter. Always inspiring to watch your card tutorials.Have a lovely Easter tomorrow with your family.
Always beautiful cards. Love them all, but if I’m pushed to choose it would be the Best Wishes card. Love the colours ❤️
Good morning from Fort Myers, Florida! I absolutely love the new flower stamp. I also really enjoy going through the blog hop presentations. All are soooo different and it really gives us a ‘big picture’ view of what we can do with each of the new items! Thanks so much for sharing!
Your cards are stunning! I love how different your designs are using the same die. The 2nd card with the in-layed die cutting is my favorite!
Beautiful cards. Thanks for sharing with us.
Lovely examples of using the layered dies Vicky! I really like the inlaid one with the bit of glitter & the shaker card is truly elegant. Thank you for the video too.
These are all stunning. I cannot pick just one favorite. I ordered this die bundle as soon as I saw it, but alas, it was already out of stock. I think it will be worth waiting for and when I get it, I will watch this video again! Thanks and stay well!
love all 3 ideas – best shaker!
Vicki you never cease to amaze me! All three cards are jaw-dropping-stunning.
Your cards are AMAZING!!! I LOVE the colors and techniques you chose!!
As always, your cards are gorgeous. I love the Dog Rose dies! (And I really need some of the gradient card stock.)
Love all the cards!!! My favorite is the inlay with the gold and glitter<3<3<3

Three very pretty cards. Hanks for the inspiration.

Love your cards. So great to see how you can use them 3 different ways
All your cards are so beautiful, thanks for sharing.
This is my favorite of the new release and I love all three ways you used them!
So, so lovely! Enjoyed your video. I loved the gold shaker card best- so elegant and special for a wedding or other very special occasion.
Wow, I love the the ways you used this die, and it’s definitely on my wish list!
Vicki.. your cards are so gorgeous.. cant just pick one.. and the inspoirations are so alluring.. that i think the wait for the bundle die will be worth waiting for.. beautiful cards.. XOXO
the cards are beautiful as always. I love all of them. You are so inspiring to make something beautiful yourself.
Beautiful floral cards
I absolutely LOVE the ways you used this die!! SWOON! Gorgeous!!
All three cards are great, but since you asked us to pick, I have to say I like the inlaid die cut card the best. I like to do the inlaid ones as well but struggle with the little pieces. Your idea of the glitter for the tiny pieces is the perfect solution. Thanks for the tip and the great video!! The Dog Rose Dies are really versatile and showing us 3 ways to use them helps.
Your cards are stunning!! I love the gold shaker card.
These cards are beautiful as always!! I love the gold shaker card the best!
As always such beautiful cards! Wonderful release.
Thanks so much for sharing.
These cards are stunning! I love how you used the dies by themselves and together. I also thought it really neat that you used glitter to fill in some of the spaces. When I have tiny inlays to do I go crazy! This is such a great idea. Going to be using this on my next inlay card!
Gorgeous!! Great ways to use the die set!!
Absolutely fabulous cards. Excellent technique and design.
Beautiful cards! Thanks so much for sharing!
Beautiful, elegant cards. Love them all!
I really love card #2
Vicky for cards like your first card, try using sheet of sticky micro dots – so much easier than glue and no mess, Enjoyed the cards and video. I had really overlooked this product but you made it a must have; so, on my list to purchase it goes. Thanks for the tips and inspiration and the coupon – a bonanza!
Simply stunning!Love this die set, thanks for the inspiration Vicky!
WOW. The gold is just incredible in this panel die. I didn’t think to use anything so bling for a main part of the image and I LOVE it! It’s modern and natural at the same time. thanks for opening my mind to a new idea.
Wow! These cards are amazing. It’s hard to pick a favorite but I think I will go with the pink and gold inlay card. These dies are already on my wishlist because they were out of stock when I went to order them but you have given me even more ideas as to how to use these truly versatile dies. Thanks for the inspiration!
Love these ideas! You are so, creative!
I knew before getting here that I would love your cards (and I do)!
OMG!. I loved seeing this Dog Rose Die Set!. I love how you showed how you could make three different cards using the Set. So versatile and beautiful. Happy Anniversary!. Stay safe.
Beautiful cards! I love the second card on the sticky paper and then the glitter. I looks awesome and less fussing with the tiny die cuts. Thank you for sharing.
Wow! Your cards are so unique! I love the beautiful ways you used gold as an outline. And great idea creating a gradient card!
Beautiful all the different way you used that. Amazing creations. Love them all!!
