Altenew’s Radial Circles Cover Die
Hello and welcome to Altenew’s Simply Scientific Release and Blog Hop! There is lots of wonderfulness in this collection. I was instantly attracted to the Radial Circles Cover Die and I used it on three of my cards today.
I started by making a background using the “Direct To Paper” method. I used 8 colors of Altenew Crisp Dye Inks in blues, greens and aquas and I just swipped the ink cube over my cardstock. I wanted the edges darker than the middle but that was the extent of my plan. Don’t worry about blending, it will look great under the die cut panel. I love the bold vivid color from this technique.
For the cover die, I used a metal shim for precise die cutting.
I thought a wreath would look pretty around the sentiment and I colored the leaves with my Altenew watercolor brush markers for a bright cheerful card.

Quick and Easy Card
If you want a quick and easy card with loads of impact, you can quickly make a background with the Direct to Paper technique described above and then just pop on a die cut cover panel and stamp a sentiment.
Altenew’s Chemistry Vases Stamp, Die and Coloring Stencil
For my next card, I used bright bold primary colors for a “school vibe”. My daughter is a scientist at a university and I made this card for her.
I started by making a background with strips cut from gel press prints. The background was easy to make and came together very quickly.
I used the Chemistry Vases stamp, coloring stencil and die for my beaker. I used Altenew Crisp Dye Inks in the following colors: Soft Lilac for the shadow, Coral Berry, Puffy Heart, Moon Rock for the beaker outline and Jet Black for the markings.

- Altenew Crisp Dye Inks
- Altenew Halftone Circles Dies for the blue background element
- Altenew Creative Edges Notebook Die for the die cut piece on the left edge of the background
- Altenew Instant Dimension Foam Tape
I love the adorably punny sentiments included in this set!
For my last card, I combined Altenew’s Chemistry Vases Bundle with the Radial Circles Cover die. I have a friend who runs a medical laboratory and I thought this card would be perfect for her birthday. I used a taupe A2 card base, added a floral embellishment from the Bitty Bits Ephemera Kit and topped it with a pink enamel dot.
I think this Chemistry Vases set is perfect for students, teachers, scientists, professors, and medical professionals.
