Altenew January Inspiration

When I saw Norine's beautiful photo taken at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, and used as our inspiration for this month's challenge at Altenew, I couldn't resist giving it a try.  My mind went instantly to my big Peony Dream dies, and literal Lin came up with this:

supplies: black, pine green, Orange Peel, Sunshine, and Lipstick Red card, Altenew Peony Dream flower dies and sentiment die from Flower Arrangement die set, Lawn Fawn Quilted Backdrop die

Here's our inspiration:


  1. Lin, your card is gorgeous. You've really made those colors pop. I just got this die in the mail this week and it's been confounding me. I'll keep this page so that I can see the layers better, they seem to be mixed up on the packaging guide.

  2. This is a beautiful take on the photo Lin, a fabulous card!

  3. Love this Lin - you have used the cover plate and the floral die to perfection

  4. I absolutely love the way your brain worked for this challenge Lin! Gorgeous results! Thank you for participating!

  5. Gorgeous! I think you just sold me on the Peony Dream dies.


Thank you so much for your kind comments - they make my day!
