ALTENEW MAY 2019 STAMPS/DIE/STENCIL/INK/ENAMEL PIN RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY



hi there!
Welcome to the Altenew May 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil/Ink/Enamel Pin Release Blog Hop + Giveaway.  You must be arriving from May's blog!   Altenew has just released a brand new set of stamps, dies, stencils, inks and some super cute enamel pins.   I am always so excited when Altenew invites me to take part of their release celebrations, and this time the products are sure to have been so inspiring, i couldn't put them down.   So let me show you what i have created:



One of the first things i added to my product list once i received the catalogue was the Fine Floral Bouquet Die.   I love the delicate edge, and how versatile it can be, so i decided to use it to create  a layout for my Family album (Citrus Twist Kits).   My thought was to replicate a lace border, so i cut a few of the images from white paper.





Once they were glued in place,  i added my picture (backed with papers from the Summer Garden paper pad) and then created a compound title using the new The Best Thing stamp set, BAF Snapdragon, and BAF Sweet Violet sentiments.   A few embellishments from the Live Your Dream collection, and Enamel dots complete this page.  The following video will show you how it all came together.



Love how the delicate die cuts frame the picture and the entire page all together, plus all the sentiments clustered to form a title, just loved it...  Now let me show you another layout created with the Delicate Clusters Stamp and Die Set and lots of color.





The new Delicate Clusters Stamp and Die set is gorgeous, and i just pulled my   Altenew mini cube ink collection and started using the color sets to create a few blooms of each color, i wanted Spring in my page.




To bring more color to the page, i started with a paper from the Reflections Scrapbook collection, and then embossed the title using the Ombre Alpha Stamp set.



To finish the page, a few colorful butterflies from my stash and a few wood veneer pieces from the Altenew collection.  Just love the colors and movement in the flowers, and how everything just shows Spring on a page..




One of the new releases is the A Walk In The Woods stamp set, and probably a new favorite of mine.   I love wood grain finishes, but this is a set that can easily be used to create masculine pages like this one,  so sit down and enjoy the next video:



The idea was to create a wood grain background with some hearts cut from the bark of the tree (I used the Halftone Hearts die set for this).





I love the stamp set and it is now on a handy spot where i can reach for it easily as well as the new Dare to Dream stamp set.   A buildable stamp is always handy, but the interchangeable designs in this one make it a must in your stash!





Let me start by saying that unfortunately i mistakenly erased the footage for the process video of this page, so i have to talk through how i created the background.   The square tile design in the Dare to Dream stamp set was the inspiration for this page.  So i matched it to some of the colors of the pictures and created a background on white cardstock ).   I drew a pencil line and then created a small mask that help to keep the lines somewhat straight.




Next, I  pulled some blue cardstock and heat embossed -in white- one of the stamp's images.  I cut each title separately, and used some foam adhesive to attach it above the stamped background. 




A few flowers were fussy cut from the Botanical Rhapsody washi tape and added a bit of color using the Altenew Markers.  To finish the page, i used the new Fancy Greetings stamp set.  LOVE how this turned out, and i am so sorry I erased the footage by mistake.  And now to finish ( i know i had a lot of fun with this release!!) let me show you a set of cards created with the Ornate Foliage Stamp and Die Set.





I heat embossed -in gold- the stamped images on white cardstock, and then used my Altenew mini Ink Cubes collection to color the images.  For this one, I used the new Gold String and  Gold Trim to create the background, then added a piece of sand cardstock in the center and glued the image in place.  The sentitment for the card comes from the Ornate Foliage stamps set.




I followed the same idea for the background of this card, however i omitted the washi tape.  I used foam adhesive to add the images and frame the center of  the card.  For the sentiment, i chose the new Fancy Greetings  stamp set



This card once again uses the new Gold String and Gold Trim Washi tapes to create the background .  Then used the stamped imaged and a sentiment from the Ornate Folliage set.  And now onto my last project/card




For this page, i started by stamping the word HELLO! on the card using the Ombre Alpha Stamp set and Altenew inks in purple.    Then glued a piece of vellum to the stamped pannel, and added a sentiment using the Fancy Greetings stamp set as well as the last stamped Ornate Foliage image.




That was  a long and lengthy post, but i did warn you i had a lot of fun with the release. But now it is time for GIVEAWAYS.
