Altenew September 2018 Washi Tape Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello and Welcome to Altenew September 2018 Washi Tape Release Blog Hop!!!

If you're coming from Enza Gudor's blog you are right on track. If you want to start from the beginning of the hop, please hop over to Altenew Card Blog

Altenew released 18 new washi tapes today! They are even more gorgeous than the previous ones!!! 
I'm so honored and excited to be a stop on this special blog hop with so many amazing papercrafters together!!! 

I have seven cards to share with you today which I've made using five new washi tape designs! It'll be a long and photo-heavy post, so without further ado lets get started!

First two cards are showcasing Glitter Flurries, a beautiful floral design with golden accents. 


To make the first card I added the 4.5 inch wide Glitter Flurries on a soft pink cardbase in A2 size. As I wanted to add the Leafy Wreath and a floral cluster from Glitter Flurries washi tape on the base, I added a piece of vellum on it, to tone down the background. The sentiment from Circled Sentiments set was gold heat embossed on that vellum panel.


The Leafy Wreath was cut from a golden cardstock from New Day Card Kit and one more time from some white cardstock. The white wreath was glued directly onto the vellum and the golden one was foam mounted slightly offset. The floral cluster from Glitter Flurries washi tape was fussy cut and then added on the wreath.


On the second card I used the  Glitter Flurries as my background again. 


This time I used a white panel to add the Glitter Flurries on it and cut it slightly narrower than A2 size. On the sides of the white cardbase I added thin strips of Gilded Ombre, an ombre purple washi tape with golden elements. Glitter Flurries and Gilded Ombre are in the same purple tone, so you can coordinate them very well together.


The hello was cut using a coordinating die for Blooming Bouquet, three times from some purple cardstock and once from a gold cardstock from New Day Card Kit. I adhered a piece of torn vellum onto the front panel, foam mounted it on the cardbase, added gold glitter tape also from New Day Card Kit and glued the stacked die cut sentiment on it.


The next card is featuring Gilded Ombre. This is a 2.95" wide, beautiful purple ombre washi tape.


I adhered the Gilded Ombre on some white cardstock and cut a side using Creative Edges: Notebook die. To extend the purple part of the card I added  Gilded Ombre on the left edge of the white cardbase and foam mounted the extra panel onto it as shown in the picture. 


The Build a Flower Anemone was gold heat embossed on some watercolor paper and colored using Watercolor 36 Pan set. I cut the colored image using coordinating dies and arranged them on the card. The sentiment is also from Build a Flower Anemone. I stamped it in Midnight Violet directly on the cardbase. 


And this is my fourth card :).


 To start off I made a A2 sized purple panel using Gilded Ombre.  The floral cluster was created using Glitter Flurries washi tape. I adhered it on a white cardstock and fussy cut the images.


I added a purple strip with a gold heat embossed sentiment from Magnolias for Her and some gold splatters to finish off the card.


For my next card I used Red Ombre washi tape. 


Red Ombre washi tape is 2.3 inch wide. I adhered it repeatedly on some white cardstock and cut it using Rose Flurries 3D dies. The leaves were cut from white cardstock and sponged with cool gray mini inks from Rock Collection.


I added black woodgrain panel on a black cardbase and splattered silver watercolor on it. After the splatters were dry I arranged the flowers and leaves as shown in the picture.


The sentiment is from Sketchy Floral stamp set. I heat embossed it using Altenew's Pure White Crisp EP on a strip of black cardstock and added it onto the card. 


This card is showing the beautiful Watercolor Nebula washi tape.


Watercolor Nebula is with almost 7 inch, the widest one from this collection. I chose a part I liked and adhered it on some white cardstock. I cut the panel using Dotted Scales Debossing Cover die and gold heat embossed two feathers from Happy Dreams stamp set on it. I then splattered some gold ink on it and let it dry. The sentiment is also from Happy Dreams stamp set. I gold heat embossed it on some white cardstock and fussy cut it.


Now I assembled the card together by adding the panel on a black cardbase and foam mounting the sentiment. To finish off I added some gold flatback pearls. 


My last card for today is featuring Pastel Strokes washi tape. 


I stared by stamping a floral cluster from Dearest Friend stamp set on a A2 sized white panel in Jet Black ink. I clear heat embossed the image to make it pop. I then stamped the same image on a white panel again and cut it in the same width like the Pastel Strokes washi tape (2.3 inch).


I colored the smaller panel using Altenew Artist Markers
I then adhered Pastel Strokes washi tape on the panel and cut it following the outlines of the stamped image. I used a kraft knife to cut, of course with a very light hand. 

I heat embossed the sentiment from Amazing You stamp set on the A2 sized panel and adhered it flat on the cardbase. The colored panel was then foam mounted onto the card. 


That's it from my side! Altenew's washi tapes are very versatile and you can make some easy and quick cards using them, as some of them are wide enough to cover the whole A2 sized panel!!!

The Ton Fall 2018 Release


Hello and Welcome to The Ton's Fall 2018 Release! 

The Ton has released 11 new stamps and a new pop up floral die. There are free gifts with purchase promotions also! Head over to The Ton’s blog for more details.

All new release orders will begin to ship on October 3.

I have three projects to share with you today. As the stamp delivery was delayed, I used Effie's digital designs to create my projects this time. 

My first card is featuring Gardenia Border Cling stamp


I printed the image on a Canson Mixed Media Paper, watercolored the image and cut the panel using Double Stitched Rectangle die. I adhered the colored panel flat on a white cardbase.

The die cut sentiment was cut from Adhesive Glitter Paper Glossy Fine Black using Fabulous word die. I cut it from thick white cardstock three more times to stack them all together for some dimension.


I cut a vellum using one of the Modern Labels dies as a mat for the die cut sentiment. The gold heat embossed small sentiment "you are" is from Brushed Love stamp set. I glued the die cut "fabulous" on the vellum label and then glued it onto the card.

I finished off the card by adding some clear Dew Drops.


My second card is showcasing the Coming Up Poinsettias stamp set. This has a beautiful poinsettia cluster image with some seasonal sentiments.


I printed the image on a Canson Mixed Media Paper and colored them using Color Burst Powders. I used Orchid and Cerulean blue for the blue-purple mix of the poinsettia leaves. After done with coloring I traced the outline with a black pen to make the image pop.


I then cut the panel using Double Stitched Rectangle die and then embossed the panel using two Double Stitched Rectangle dies to add some texture to the card. To place the sentiment from the same stamp set I cut a leaf outline. The sentiment strip was foam mounted. The card front was adhered flat on a navy cardbase. To finish off I scattered some sequins from Lilac Blossoms and Blue Ice Couture Mix.


The last project is not a card. I colored the whole panel of the Gardenia Garden cling stamp image (6x6). After the coloring was done I didn't want to cut the panel into a A2 size. I don't know yet what I'll do with this :).


I printed this image on a Neenah solar white cardstock and colored the gardenia flowers using Copic Markers. I used R32, 35, 46, 39 and 89. The leaves were colored only subtle using C1 and C3.





GIVEAWAY

We are giving away a stamp set of choice from our new release to four people. Please leave a comment on each participating blog to qualify. The comment period will close on September 27 at 7pm EST.

Altenew Refresh Your Alcohol Markers Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and Welcome to Refresh Your Alcohol Markers Blog Hop!

Today I'm celebrating with Altenew the release of new Artist Marker Refills. It's an honor to be a part of this blog hop and I can say, I had fun playing with the Artist Marker Refills :)!

If you're coming from lovely Rubeena Ianigro's blog you are right on track. If you want to start from the beginning of the hop, please hop over to Altenew Card Blog

Altenew released Artist Marker Refills for Artist Marker set A, set B and set C. I wanted to apply alcohol ink coloring technique on my image using Artist Marker Refills as alcohol ink. So I chose the big flower from Crown Bloom stamp set to color and Artist Marker Refill set B for a color scheme of purple, yellow and gold. 


I started by gold heat embossing the big flower, small blooms and leaves from  Crown Bloom stamp set on some alcohol ink cardstock. I colored the big flower by dripping R705 and R702 Refills on the petals and tilting the paper to spread the color. the flower center was colored using WG07 and micro applicator. For the small flowers I used Y205 refill and green Artist Markers from set A. To color the leaves I scribbled first the inner part using G554 Artist Marker and then dripped WG03 Refill on it to blend the green color with warm gray. 


I die cut all images using coordinating dies and set them aside.
The background was made on a Yupo panel. I first sprayed plenty of rubbing alcohol on the panel, applied some drops of R702, WG01 and WG03 Refill on it and blew the colors and alcohol to blend them. I then added Gold Mixative for some golden accents and splatters of R705, WG07 refill.


After the background panel was dry, I cut it slightly smaller than A2 size and gold heat embossed the four sides. I then assembled the card together. The background panel was adhered flat on a white top fold cardbase and the flowers and leaves are arranged as shown in the picture along with the gold heat embossed sentiment from BAF: Cattleya stamp set. To finish off the card I scattered some golden sequins.
