Altenew October Release Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends, happy Thursday!!
Welcome to the Altenew October Product Release Blog Hop! You should have arrived from so amazing Nicole Picadura!!
altenew-oct-bloghop-bannerIn October, we are releasing 16 stamp sets for creating Christmas projects and my card today features the Bells and Bows & Holiday Wishes Stamp Sets – Christmas is coming and festivity is already in the air!!
yoonsunhur-20161013-altenew-001I used a lot of Altenew dye inks to stamp the Christmas bells and bows :D I randomly stamped the layered images from the Bells and Bows set on an A2 sized watercolour paper panel using dye inks (I used a MISTI to get exact placement of my stamped layers):
Red bells on the top part: Peach Perfect (the base layer), Ruby Red (outline and dark shadow)
Brown bell: Rocky Shore (base), Mocha (shadow), Espresso (outline)
Blue bell on the right side: Sea Glass (base), Desert Night (outline and dark shadow)
Blue bell on the left side: Ocean Waves (base), Dusk (shadow), Desert Night (outline)
Green bell on the right side: Mango Smoothie (base), Evergreen (outline and dark shadow)
Green bell on the left side: Frayed Leaf (base), Forest Glades (shadow), Evergreen (outline)
Red bell on the bottom: Frosty Pink (base), Crimson (shadow), Grapevine (outline) and I used Dark Chocolate to stamp the darkest part of them.
Green bow: Frayed Leaf (lightest), Forest Glades, Evergreen (darkest)
Red bow: Frosty PinkCoral BerryRuby Red
Yellow bow: Warm Sunshine, Rocky Shore, Mocha
Brown bow: Sand DunesRocky ShoreMocha
Purple bow: Lavender Fields, Deep Iris, Midnight Violet. (Phew!!)
For the sentiment, I heat embossed it from the Holiday Wishes set on red card stock in white, cut it with banner die. I mounted the stamped panel on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added the sentiment banner on it using foam tape. I decorated the sentiment banner with natural twine bow, silver jingle bell, and some tiny star wood veneers because it’s Christmas!!
