Alex Syberia Designs | Thank You For Being My Friend Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello there, I am delighted to be joining Alex Syberia Designs today to celebrate the Thank You For Being My Friend Release with a fun blog hop. I have two projects to share with you today and I will have another soon.

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.


For my projects today, I am using the new Spring Garden collection. There is a stamp set, die set and coordinating stencils to colour the images in. I am also using the fabulous new Speckled Background Stencil in two different ways. 


For the card, I started off by stamping the main floral image from Alex Syberia Designs Spring Garden Stamp Set on to white cardstock using Altenew Permanent Black Ink. I placed the Alex Syberia Designs Spring Garden Layering Stencil Set on top (one by one) and added ink blending to the image. I used Altenew Cherry Blossom Inks for the petals, Altenew Golden Sunset Inks for the flower centres and Altenew Green Valley Inks for the leaves and stems. 

I then die cut the image out using the Alex Syberia Spring Garden Die Set. I did cut the die again from white cardstock and adhered it behind the stamped one for some added dimension and stability. I took a panel of white cardstock and ran it through my die cutting machine with the Alex Syberia Designs Speckled Background Stencil to emboss it. Difficult to see in the photos, but looks lovely in real-life! 

The image was adhered on top and then the panel adhered to a US A2 sized white card base with thin foam tape. I took the Alex Syberia Designs Thanks Die and cut the shadow from white cardstock and the word itself from black cardstock. They were layered up and adhered to the card. 

The sentiment from the Alex Syberia Designs Spring Garden Set was stamped on to black cardstock using Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. It was die cut using the coordinating die and adhered to the card. To finish off, I added a few Iridescent Bubbles

For my next project, I created tag using the same products but with a different look. I started off by die cutting a tag from white cardstock and then placed the Alex Syberia Designs Speckled Background Stencil on top. I added ink blending through the dots with Altenew Jet Black Ink. I then stamped the image from Alex Syberia Designs Spring Garden Stamp Set on to vellum using Versamark Ink

I applied white embossing powder and heat set. It was die cut out with the coordinating die and then adhered to the tag with tiny dabs of glue behind the embossed lines. I heat embossed a sentiment from the set on to black cardstock, die cut out out with coordinating die and adhered it to the tag with thin foam tape. To finish off, I added twine through the top of the tag and tied in a bow and to embellish, I added a few enamel dots

  16. Great job on both projects. I love that the dies cut out very close to the flowers. Sometimes after I've die cut something I feel like the big white border is very distracting and I think it still needs to be fussy cut. Beautiful projects for a great new company.
