3 Ways With Altenew's Spring Shower Cover Die

Happy Monday Crafters, I hope you all had a good weekend.

Today's edition of "3 Ways With" is all about the Spring Shower Cover die from Altenew.  I was totally inspired to use this die by the sunny weather and all the seeds and bulbs I have been planting recently. Is it just me or does the sight of a shoot popping through the soil surface spark the ultimate joy?

The Spring shower cover die is an amazing die and I had real trouble deciding which 3 ways to share with you as there really is so much that you can do with this die, even my 14 year old son said "you could easily do 10 things with it"......


The die cut panel can be used as a stencil for either spraying through, doodling through or to add ink.  I decided to use it to add embossing ink over an ink blended background. I then heat embossed the pattern in crisp white embossing ink.

I added a sentiment using script word dies and the ampersand from the Merry Christmas die set. I cut this in both white and pink. I added the sentiment on to a piece of vellum before placing it onto a card.

Die cut Florals

I cut the Spring Flower cove die from 6 different coloured piece of card, I chose spring colours that would look good for the floral theme.

The packaging shows a layering guide on how to put the die cut piece together but I went rogue and made my own designs. I added the flowers to a background panel from the Dotted scale cover die. The sentiment is from the Hope stamp and die set.

Paper Piecing 

I had lots of the flowers and leaves from having cut the die 6 times so decided to do a little inlaid/paper piecing project. Trying to find which little piece goes where can be tricky so keep the die and or the packaging close to hand to refer to.

I added a sentiment using the Hang in there die, which I cut from white and one of the colours from the flowers to create a drop shadow effect.

I hope I've given you some inspiration on how to use the Spring shower cover die, If you do create a project based on what I've shared please tag me on social media as I'd love to see your creations.
