Altenew October 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello and welcome to Altenew October 2018 Stamp and Die Release Blog Hop!!!

If you are coming from Nicole Picadura's blog, you are right on track. If you are lost on the way or want to start from the beginning of the hop please visit Altenew Card Blog.

As always Altenew has released some gorgeous floral stamp and die sets and there are also very versatile sets for holiday season and awesome die sets! Here you can see all the new items!

I've created 4 cards using new release items to share with you. 
My first card is a Christmas card using Brilliant Baubles and Blooming Branches set. 


I started by stamping one bauble from  Brilliant Baubles stamp set in embossing ink onto the center of a white A2 sized panel. I silver heat embossed the body and gold heat embossed the cap and the decorations on the bauble. I sponged light yellow and light green inks on the bauble.  I stamped the bauble again on a same spot of another A2 sized panel in black and cut it using a cutting machine. Of course you can use the coordinating die!


I stamped the branch images from Blooming Branches set in two light shades of green inks from Tropical Forest onto the front panel. The sentiment is also from Brilliant Baubles set. I stamped it first in Jet Black ink and again only the Christmas part in embossing ink to heat emboss it in gold. 
I tied the golden twine to the top part of the panel as a string where the bauble is hanging. 
I glued the panel with the heat embossed bauble on a cardbase and added thin strip of glitter gold tape from New Day Card Kit on both sides of it. The front panel was then foam mounted. I added a golden bow to the bauble and one red flat back pearl to finish off the card. 


My second card is featuring two of the new die sets, Layered Floral Elements Die set and Fine Frames Cover die


To start off I created watercolor washed papers using Altenew Watercolor pan set. I then cut them with Layered Floral Elements Die set and assembled them together after the guide included in the package.


 I dry embossed a gray cardstock using  Fine Frames Cover die to add some texture on the background. On a cream cardbase I foam mounted the gray panel and arranged the floral cluster on it as shown in the picture. The white heat embossed sentiment is from Blooming Branches set. I finished off the card with some clear and iridescent sequins.


Next is a card in a simple design. I played with Playful Blooms stamp set. 


I stamped first the flower outlines from Playful Blooms set in Jet Black and clear heat embossed them to make the color pop. I repeated the process while masking when needed. I then stamped the solid stamps to fill the flowers. I used Pocketful of Sunshine and Warm and Cozy mini ink set for the yellow-orange flowers and Glacier Caves mini ink set for the blue ones.


After the stamping was done, I fussy cut the outlines of the bottom edge and foammounted the panel onto a navy cardbase. The sentiment from Playful Blooms was stamped in Jet Black and fussy cut. I added Glossy Accents on the sentiment for some dimension and shine.




The last card for today is a holiday card. The Layered Snowflake is so delicate and beautiful! I love it! 


To start off I stamped the Winter Cottage image in Sand Dunes mini ink from Coffee Break set on a watercolor cardstock. I colored it roughly using Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers and Sand Dunes and Mocha mini inks. I used the Sea Breeze Brush Marker to color the sky and colored a mixed media paper panel in the same color to cut the snowflakes.


The mini sentiment is from Season's Greetings set. I stamped it in Jet Black directly on the colored panel. I mounted the panel flat on a bright blue cardbase and layered the snowflakes on it. I glued a rhinestone on the center of the snowflake and the card was done!

LOve the new floral dies, TaeEun … is it terrible to think you might be thinking of me when you use grey? Or do you use it so beautifully because you love it, too? lol AT any rate, the grey framed base makes those florals shine!
Really wonderful, gorgeous projects … so many fabulous new products! How does a girl choose? xx

I love the soft colors you chose for that card, and I love the bold colors and composition of the Playful Blooms card. Thanks so much for sharing.
