ALTENEW: AUGUST 2022 MARVELOUS MONTHLY SERIES BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY ($300 in total prizes) 


Hello!

What amazing new products, right? If you are playing along in the hop, you should have arrived from Erum Tasneem's blog. And if you would like to go back to the beginning of the hop, you can find that here. Leave a comment down below for your chance to win a gift card to the Altenew shop.


I have 5 card ideas to share with you today using each of the monthly subscription products.


Craft Your Life Project Kit

I stamped and colored the images from the Craft Your Life Project Kit: Magnolia Blooms with Antique Gold Embossing Powder, and Crisp Dye Inks.

The Craft Your Life Kit comes with a 3D Embossing Folder, which makes for a dynamic, textured, easy background, or even the focal point of a card. I added Enamel Dots and the sentiment to finish off this card.


Mini Delight

This Mini Delight: Like A Star set is so fun and makes a cute quick little card. I stamped it with Permanent Black Ink added the inside stamps with Crimson and Velvet Inks, used the die to cut it out and added the sentiment from the Birthday greetings Stamp Set. And lastly, added the balloon tail with a Fine Liner Pen.

 

Paint-A-Flower

I have tried an older technique that I haven't done in a long time with the Paint-A-Flower: Wood Anemone Set. First I heat embossed the image with Crisp White Embossing Powder not some watercolor cardstock, then used the 36 Pan Watercolor Set to paint it. Then when it was dry I removed the heat embossing with an iron and some typing paper to reveal the white outline.


Build-A-Garden

I love the Build-A-Garden: Daffodil Delight set. I used the coordinating Coloring Stencils to create the background panel for the card with the Pocketful Of Sunshine Crisp Dye Inks. Then I stamped the outline image onto the panel along with the sentiment with some Obsidian Black Ink. I also stamped the outline images onto a white card base in Limestone Crisp Dye Ink.



Craft-A-Flower

It's always fun to die cut all the parts of the Craft-A-Flower out and see what they look like. The Open Peony Set has beautiful pieces that fit together so nicely.  I cut the leaves out of craft foam and made some stamps which I stamped a background panel in Limestone Ink then splattered it with Jet Black Ink Spray. I colored the cut out pieces and adhered them to the panel with some liquid glue, stamped the sentiment from Hello Sunshine, cut out the "you" and a strip for the edge from Gilded Glitter Cardstock and the Craft Your Life Project Kit: Dynamic Blossoms, and assembled the card onto a white card base.

ALTENEW: AUGUST 2022 BOLD & BEAUTIFUL RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY ($300 in total prizes)


Hello crafters.

Hope you have enjoyed the hop so far. If you are following the hop, you should have found your way from Laurie Patterson. And you can find your way back to the beginning of the hop Here.

If you are loving these products you can shop the Bold & Beautiful Release products Here, or I would appreciate if you shopped the links provided down below.



The Arch Of Flowers is such a cute set. I've stamped it onto some watercolor cardstock with Permanent Black Ink on the diagonal on the top right and bottom left corners. I then painted it in with the 36 Pan Watercolor Set and set it aside to dry. I used the Hosta 3D Embossing Folder to dry emboss a white piece of cardstock and adhered it to a white card base with the Ultra Sticky Double-Sided 1/2" Tape. 



I stamped and heat embossed the sentiments with the One-Go Birthday Greetings Stamp Set, and used the coordinating Dies to cut them out. It is one stamp, so, they are stamped and cut all at once so you can have lots of sentiments ready to go when you need them. I adhered the watercolor panel to the card with the Ultra Sticky Tape and then adhered the sentiment with Instant Dimension Foam Tape.


Well if you were able to snag this Dazzling Dahlia Bundle when it was released through the Altenew app early, I bet you cannot wait to make some beautiful things with it as well.

I stamped the images onto some craft colored cardstock, and used some masking paper to layer the images onto my cardstock panel how I wanted the layout to be. I also stamped the hummingbird and one flower onto another piece of craft cardstock. I used the stencils and some white pigment ink to color in the images and then used some Inktense colored pencils and water to color in the images. (Very little water)


When it was dry, I added some dimension with the Woodless Coloring Pencils to all the pretty things. Stamped the sentiment with Obsidian Black Ink. Used the Dies to cut the flower and hummingbird out and adhered them to the panel with Instant Dimension Foam Tape. And then adhered the panel to a white card base with some tape runner.


I was not sure how I wanted to color the Linear Spiral Stamp once I had stamped it with Permanent Black Ink. I finally decided that I wanted to color it with Artist Markers in the colors R801, B001, B003, B526, C005, C007, C015, C006, R826. Cut it down and adhered it to a white card base. I stamped the sentiment on another piece of white cardstock, cut it out and adhered it to the card with Instant Dimension Foam Tape.



For my final card, I have a piece of paper from the Celebrate 6 x 6 Paper Pack that I wanted to use, but if I cut it down, I would lose all that I wanted to still have on the paper. So, I created something similar with the 36 Pan Watercolor Set and a piece of watercolor cardstock. I stamped the outline layers of the flowers and leaves from the Precious Doodles Stamp Set in Permanent Black Ink on another piece of watercolor cardstock. Then using the solid layers, I stamped them in watercolor fashion with crisp dye inks, then spritzing with water on the outline layer.






I cut them out with the Dies and then stamped the other images around where I planned on adhering the flowers on the watercolored background. I used Citrus Burst, Frayed Leaf, Mountain Pine, Pink Pearl, Canyon Clay, Pink Quartz, Coral Bliss, Pinkalicious, and Turquoise Crisp Dye Inks. I deepend up the flowers and leaves with some Artist Markers in C004, Y207, R400, R301, R502, and R504. Adhered the flowers and leaves as well as another sentiment from the One-Go Birthday Greetings with Instant Dimension Foam Tape, and then adhered it to a white card base that I've colored the outer edges with Mountain Pine Crisp Dye Ink.

I dry embossed Solar White Cardstock with the Sunshine Blossoms Folder. I used the crisp dye inks to lightly add color through the stencil. I added more details with the colored pencils. Added color to the flower centers with Paper Bag Crisp Dye ink and my finger. I added some blue ink lightly around the florals with a Detailed Blending Brush. Colored the front of a white card base with the Hydrangea Crisp Dye Ink and adhered the colored panel to it with the Ultra Sticky Double-Sided Tape. Cut out the "happy" from some black cardstock and adhered it to the card with liquid adhesive. Stamped the sentiment onto a strip of cardstock and added it with the Instant Dimension Foam Tape.

When my order came, one of the items on the list was the tissue paper that the items come wrapped in. I have thought about using it before, and I really wanted to use it this time, It is so pretty. I think someone else used the tissue paper as well. I used some spray adhesive on a piece of white cardstock and smoothed the tissue paper over it. I cut the big floral out using scissors and dry embossed it with the Playful Circles Folder. I used the leaf dies to cut out some leaves out of the tissue paper as well as the gold mirror cardstock. I embossed a piece of white cardstock with the Geo Triangles Embossing Folder. Adhered that with another piece of Mirror cardstock to a white card base. Adhered the floral and leaves with the Instant Dimension Foam Tape. Cut the "birthday" once from the mirror cardstock and twice from white, adhered them together and then to the card. and added the "happy" sentiment.
