Altenew December Release Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends, TGIF!
Welcome to the Altenew December Release Blog Hop!! If you arrived here from Altenew Scrapbook blog you are on the right track!

In December, we have 14 brand new stamp sets & matching die sets, 2 stand-alone die sets and..ta-da! new Mini Blossom Die Cutting Machine!! Our Mini Blossom Die Cutting Machine is the compact and portable must-have tool for your craft room! It is designed to work with Altenew dies (sold separately) and other wafer-thin metal dies. It can be used to quickly and easily die cut a variety of materials, including cardstock and Altenew specialty papers, and will help you add texture and dimension to your projects. The elegant and clean design will look wonderful on your craft desk, secured on its stable base with suction feet.

For my first card, I used the Happy Together stamp set and “Thank you” word die in the Flower Arrangement die set. I started by stamping flowers from the Happy Together set randomly onto watercolour paper panel in pigment black ink, and then watercoloured the panel with several Distress inks.
I die cut “Thank you” sentiment from white card stock using the Flower Arrangement die set. It’s a beautiful and trendy script font!

For my second card, I used the Peony Spray stamp set – I love this set in particular!

Flower card again!! :D For my last card, I used the Flower Arrangement stamp set. I randomly stamped layered flowers & leaves with lots of dye inks:
Red flowers: (light to dark) Frosty Pink, Coral Berry, Ruby Red
Yellow flowers: Mango Smoothie, Honey Drizzle, Orange Cream
Blue flowers: Sea Glass, Ocean Waves, Desert Night
Large leaves: Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, Evergreen

and then watercoloured around the stamped images with some Distress inks.

Newton’s Nook Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends, TGIF!
Welcome to the Newton’s Nook Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop!! If you arrived here from Kay Miller’s blog you are on the right track!

My card today features the Snow Globe Scenes stamp set and the Snow Globe Shaker die set.
To create the card, I stamped town from the Snow Globe Scenes set on watercolour paper in VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink, coloured it with Hero Arts Watercolor Wheel, and then fussy cut it out. I then placed it inside the Snow Globe with some tiny snowflakes & clear sequins. For the snowy night background, I heat embossed santa sleigh from the Snow Globe Scenes set on watercolour panel with white embossing powder, and then ink blending on the panel using Chipped Sapphire, Seedless Preserves Distress inks. I added white ink splatters all over the panel. Once the background panel was completely dry, I mounted it on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added shaker snow globe using foam tape.

For my first card, I used brand new Wild RoseWinter Woodland sets along with the Christmas Friends set.
I started by stamping flowers & leaves from the Wild Rose set onto watercolour paper using VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink.

I stamped & coloured a little girl from the Christmas Friends set with Distress markers. For a pair of birds, I used the Winter Woodland set.
Before mounting all watercoloured die cuts, I stamped the sentiment from the Holiday Greetings set on the top right corner of the white paper panel in black pigment ink, added metallic gold washi tape on the bottom of the panel.

For my second card, I used the Joy Shaker and the Festive Holly die sets.
I filled up the Joy Shaker cut with the gold shimmer seed beads. I glued them using Glossy Accents.
