Alexandra Renke Blog Hop



Good morning! I'm excited to be part of a hop to celebrate the arrival of Alexandra Renke products in the Ellen Hutson shop! (full blog list below)



These new stamps, dies and stenciles have a cool, edgy look and are so much fun to play with!

For my first card, I inlaid the 'You Are Amazing' die into a circle panel, with part of it overhanging for some added interest. I coloured one of the inserts with a rainbow of Copics (isn't it cool how it's part of the 'you' and part of the 'amazing'?) and then popped up the panel over a slightly larger circle that I had edged with the same markers. I offset the placement of the panel, to emphasize the overhanging portion of the sentiment.


I love the geometry of the Grid die! I chose to highlight the 'flowers' by inlaying a rainbow of the diamonds into the black outline. I used Best Wishes stamps and Wonderful die to create my sentiment.
