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

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the Altenew November 2017 Release Blog Hop!! We have 14 brand new stamp sets, 8 new die sets in November! If you arrived here from Sandra Dietrich’s blog you are on the right track!

For my first card, I am featuring the new Golden Feather stamp set along with other Altenew products.
I started by heat embossing one of feathers from the Golden Feather set on the centre of the watercolour paper panel in white. I heat embossed tiny dots from the Happy Dreams set around the stamped feather in white as well. I coloured the stamped panel with some Distress inks.
Once the panel was completely dry, I die cut the word “hugs” using the Script Words die set, and then inlaid it using fine tip glue pen.

For my second card, I used the Story of Us stamp set. I stamped the layered flowers & leaves on watercolour panel with some dye inks:
Blue flowers: (light to dark) TurquoiseTide Blue, Starlight
Purple flowers: Lavender Fields, Deep Iris, Starlight
Leaves: Parrot, Forest Glades
I then coloured the rest areas with Distress inks.

Altenew: Happy Holidays

Happy Thursday crafty friends!
I’m up on the Altenew blog with my Christmas card to share with you using the Build-A-Flower: Poinsettia along with other products. The poinsettia is one of the plants traditionally use as Christmas decoration so it makes me feel excited about Christmas approaching!!
To create this card, I stamped & die cut the layered poinsettia from the Altenew Build-A-Flower: Poinsettia set. I used (from light to dark) Ruby Red, Velvet, Dark Chocolate dye inks for solid images and then Jet Black dye ink for outlined image. I then heat embossed the sentiment from the Altenew Holiday Wishes set on dark brown card stock in white, and then trimmed it down as a small banner.
For the background, I die cut the Striped Leaf Cover from kraft card stock, and then mounted the “Striped Leaf” panel on kraft card base using foam tape. I added white ink splatters here and there. I added Gold Fenstone Decorative, poinsettia die cut, and sentiment banner in order using foam tape as well. To finish it off, I added white dots using Nuvo Simply White Crystal Drops.
Thank you so much for stopping by. Happy crafting!!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!
