ALTENEW PLENTIFUL PATTERNS STAND-ALONE DIES/STENCILS/COLLECTION RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY ($300 IN TOTAL PRIZES)


Welcome. 

What a fun release to end being a guest designer.
 I hope that I am asked to participate again really soon. 

Now, for the release. WOW! So fun! You should of come from Keren Baker. Or you can go back to the beginning of the hop HERE.
 

This first card was pretty quick to put together. I cut the Wave Form Cover Die from some white cardstock. I used Ocean Waves, Tide Blue, Dusk, Sapphire, and Gray Denim with the Small Blending Brushes to color the shapes.


I layered those onto a white piece of cardstock and left a small space between the spaces. I had to cut down the small piece in the lower right, and along the bottom a little to make it work. I then layered that onto a black piece of cardstock and then to a white card base.


I cut the "You" from the Mega You die from white twice, and black once. Layered those with the black one dropped down and to the right, then adhered that t the card with some silver thread puddled underneath it. I stamped the sub sentiment from the Mega Greetings 2 Stamp set and adhered that to the card with some foam tape.


For my second card I embossed the second largest die from the Mix and Match Frames Dies on white cardstock. Then used the smallest pen from the Fine Liner Pen set to add the lines around the embossed frame. Then cut the inside from from white cardstock as well. layered those on a piece of black cardstock and then on a white card base.


I then Stamped the flowers from the Fresh Cut Roses Stamp Set with Permanent Black ink on White cardstock.


I colored them in with he Artist Makers in colors C004G804G825G935Y514, Y608, and Y817. I fussy cut them out and adhered them and my sentiment to the card.


And the last card I cut the leaves from the Inline Leaves Die set from some white cardstock and colored it with Charcoal Suit ink by rubbing the mini ink pad over the cut leaves.


I rubbed some Arctic ink over the center pard of a piece of white cardstock and then to a small piece as well. I also rubbed Silver Stone ink around the outside of a n A-2 size white panel.


I stamped the sentiment from the Adore You Add on Stamp Set in Charcoal Suit onto the small piece of cardstock I colored in Arctic ink. Cut it to the size I wanted and adhered that to a bigger piece of white cardstock.


I adhered all the panels to a white card base and then the leaves on top. And finally, I adhered the sentiment with some foam tape with some silver thread.


I want to thank Altenew for this opportunity to participate the last couple months. It was a lot of fun.

Make today amazing!

ALTENEW PAINT-A-FLOWER: WHITE SWAN ECHINACEA OUTLINE STAMP SET RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY


 Welcome!

Another fabulous Paint-A-Flower release from Altenew. Love these flowers and the ability to do such a variety of things to make them shine.

If you are joining in the hop you should have found your way here from Joylita Dsouza, and if you want to return to the beginning, click HERE.

You can find more info on the beautiful White Swan Echinacea Set HERE.


I stamped the flowers with Permanent Black ink on the top and bottom of a piece of white cardstock cut for a slimline card.


I used Altenew Artist Markers to color them in WG01, WG03, WG05, BG3, B002, G804, G935, G825, Y401, Y512, Y911, Y821, Y932, and then went around the outside of the flowers and leaves to help the stand out with C007, and B526.


I added the sentiment stamped with Permanent Black ink, the wrapped the edge with some Emerald Washi tape. I adhered the panel to a white caed base that I first colored the front outer edges by rubbing with the mini Emerald ink cube. Added some details to the center of the flowers with white and silver gel pens, and a line next to the washi tape with the silver gel pen. Finished by adding a couple round flat sequins.


Thanks for visiting.

ALTENEW MINI DELIGHT: HAPPY BIRTHDAY RELEASE INSTAGRAM HOP  



Welcome!

I hope you are having a fantastic day.
I’m sharing this for the Altenew Mini Delight: Happy Birthday-Instagram hop, you can find all the details at Altenew (@altenewllc).

Altenew’s mini stamps are so fun, and so versatile. I was needing a birthday card for my granddaughter, and thought this could be a fun set to use. In retrospect, probably should have used different colors, but I think she will love it anyway.


This set is really easy to use. The two layers are very forgiving. I’ve used Fresh Lemon, Maple Yellow, Firefly, Green Field, Shadow Creek, Turquoise, Tide Blue, and Starlight for the little balloons. Then squished some ink onto an acrylic block and splattered a white card panel with the colors.


I prepped a strip of velum with an anti-static tool and used Permanent Black ink with clear embossing powder. I make sure my heat gun is warmed up really well before taking it to the velum. I find there is less warping that way. I adhered a small strip a gold washi to both sides, and adhered it to the panel by wrapping to the back. Adhered the panel to a blue card base and then the balloons and strings to the top.


Thanks for visiting.
