Altenew NEW Sweet Moments Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes) ($300 in total prizes)

 



Hi there!
Welcome to ALTENEW NEW SWEET MOMENTS COLLECTION RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY.  You are arriving from Altenew Card Blog.  A list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience!



Today's release is filled with amazing products that will have you looking for opportunities to create a new project.  I had so much fun creating with a few of the products. Let me show you L




The new EUCALYPTUS WREATH  HOT FOIL PLATE AND STENCIL BUNDLE is so beautiful and versatile, you can easily use it to create a new entry in my Grateful 30 album.   The larger hot foil plate is perfect for a larger size style of documenting. I simply used espresso foil to create the outline of the wreath, then  used the new coloring stencil to add color to each leaf.




I carefully fussy cut it , and used it as part of my journal page. I paired this with a large photo and the new TINY SENTIMENTS: HELLO DIE SET and GOLD FOIL POLKA DOT WASHI TAPE  (as a sentiment/subtitle).  Just love how this turned out!




I used the negative part of the foil paper from the EUCALYPTUS WREATH HOT PLATE to create this card panel. Once again, the new TINY SENTIMENTS: HELLO STAMP AND DIE Bundleto create this beautiful card.





For my last projects, I am using the new SPLATTER HOT FOIL PLATE to create the card panels.





For the first card, I paired the foiled Splatter background with a large floral image.  I am using the new HAPPY PETALS STAMP SET and the new BLENDS paper pack to create the floral image.    Once I fussy cut it and attached it to the card panel, I stamped a sentiment from the new COLORFUL SOUL  to serve as the focal point of the card.




I am using the negative foil paper to create an inverse splatter pattern on a card panel.  I then created a band using the new GOLD FOIL PINSTRIPE WASHI TAPE and use it to set a few stamped images.  The new ALL THINGS SWEET stamp/die bundle set is amazing, and just perfect for the card.  FInally I added a stamped sentiments, and a simple title (COLORFUL SOUL stamp set) and voila!

I hope you had enjoyed these projects, and are working on your wish list items instead,   Remember to check Altenew's promotions with purchase.

THE GREAT FISHING MEMORIES - Doodlebug Design

 I think most of us learned to fish at an early age.   My husband, an avid fisher himself, decided to teach the kids the how-tos of  fishing at an early age.   They loved sitting there with their rods, and catch the small fish!  So, when I saw all the fishing icons in THE GREAT OUTDOORS Collection, this idea came to mind.




I  started by creating a small frame using the Wild Flowers and Colors of Nature paper.   I then, attached these to the b side of Happy Camper paper (all the floating fish are perfect for the story of this layout!).




I took advantage of the corners of the small frame to create two large focal points.  The one on the top right corner of the page has two pictures  surrounded by embellishments. The color combo of the collection just worked perfectly with the photos.




I used the diagonally opposite corner to add large cluster of embellishments.  This collection is packed with so many different icons, it was so easy to add all the pieces together,




I had a hard time coming up with the title, until I found the FISHING sentiment in the Chit Chat pack. A bit of foam adhesive just makes it pop from the page.   




Be sure to check THE GREAT OUTDOORS collection, you are going to fall  in love with it!

Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Himalayan Poppy Outline Stamp Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($200 in Total Prizes)

 


Hi there!

Welcome to ALTENEW PAINT-a-FLOWER: HIMALAYAN POPPY OUTLINE STAMP SET RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY.  You are arriving from Dana Joy's blog.   A list of all participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience.






Today we are celebrating the new release PAINT-A-FLOWER: HYMALAYAN POPPIES, as well WOODLESS COLORING PENCILS, MONOCHROME SHADING PENCILS, MASKING FLUID, HAWAIIAN SHORES FINE TIP PENS.    There are so many possibilities, so what better than to show you them at work:



For my first card, I used the new PAINT-A-FLOWER: HYMALAYAN POPPIES and the HAWAIIAN SHORES FINE TIP PENS  to add a focal point in the card.





My choice was to dilute the pigment in the Hawaiian Shores Tip pens to color in the flower. Then use the fine tip pens to draw the frame, and add the small details. This came together easily.









The card panel is created with the embossing folder from the kit.   Then, I stamped two of the same flower images from the kit, and used the new color pencils to add shades and color to the images.






I love how this turned out (maybe cause coloring pencils are something,   I have always used for coloring), the new coloring pencils are smooth, and so easy to blend together.
