I have to tell you that Altenew Tape Runner is my new best friend!
I used it on all the cards I am sharing today. It really helped me immensely to stick all the tiny diecut pieces without any hassle.
Now on to the projects!

Featuring the Inline Alpha Dies:
Altenew Inline Alpha Die, Spring Daisy stamp set watercolored by @pr0digy0
I heat embossed the images from Spring Daisy stamp set and watercoloured my background.
I formed the word Congrats using the newly release Inline Alpha Dies.
The gold glitter strip at the bottom is the Altenew Glitter Tape.
Here is a closeup.

Featuring the Cityscape Cover Die A and

Shaker card. Altenew Cityscape Cover Die A and B + Sentiment & Quotes Stamp set by @pr0digy0
With these dies you really don't have to do much.
I diecut Cityscape Cover Die A using gold cardstock and Cityscape Cover Die B in black.
Layered them up and glued the leftover pieces from the gold cardstock to make my gold windows.
Sentiment is from Sentiments & Quotes stamp set.

Altenew Layered Floral Cover Dies A and B. Card by @pr0digy0
This card has three layers. The first layer is Layered Floral Cover Die A which I diecut using white cardstock and covered it with holographic glitter!
Second layer is Layered Floral Cover Die B for which I used watercolours to add colour.
The third layer is my base layer, I embossed this layer using the die and a tan mat to make a guide (to colour). I added darker tones of the same watercolours I used on the first layer. 
I decided to not add any sentiment to my card front, I really didnt want to cover the pretty front!

I made a few cards using the New Day Card Kit as well. Here is a photo to show you whats included in the kit.

Card Kit contains:
Thirty four cardstock die cuts
Six 8.5x11 inch cardstock (Made in UK)
Forty eight 6x6 inch pattern paper sheets (two of each design)
Two alphabet sticker sheets
12 wood veneer frames
6x8 inch photopolymer clear stamp set (Made in USA)
One gold glitter tape
Frame die, hearts and stars die
Enamel dots and hearts (4x6 inch sheet)

The pattern papers are GORGEOUS!!! 
They have this watercolour theme and it looks absolutely beautiful. 
For my projects I picked out the blues and greens by chance.
The projects are pretty simple and self explanatory.
Everything I used is from the kit except for the silver glitter tape, Altenew Crisp Inks, Tiny Triangles stamp set. The sequins are from Dress My Craft and twine by Papericious.
