Altenew January 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hi there!

Welcome to the Altenew January 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil release blog hop + Giveaway, you must be arriving from Nicole Picadura's blog.

Today I am very excited to be taking part of this blog hop as i love Altenew products and the new releases are beyond amazing.   There is so much to chose from in this release, so i created quite a bit of projects to showcase a few of the new products.  Let's get started.



 I fell in love with the new Floral Heart Frame die, and chose to use it to create a new page about my daughter and i.   For this page, i used some of the Altenew crisp inks to add color beneath the heart so that they match the colors in the FLurries of Flowers washi tape.   I nestled the picture  in the heart die cuts, and then surrounded it with fussy cut washi flowers.  Such a simple and soft design, that came together in no time, here is a video that will show you the process:





I love how the layout came together so easily with just a few products.  Really love the new Floral Heart Frame die, but since we are talking hearts, this new release also features the Magnolia Heart Stamp and Die set, which looks a lot like the Floral Heart Frame die but in a smaller format, perfect to create a card!




First i used Altenew's Limestone crisp ink to stamp the heart continuously on the background - i used a small heart mask to help me fill the entire background-.  While the ink set on the background, i embossed the image of the Magnolia Heart stamp with rose gold powder, and cut it using the coordinating die.  The sentiment on the stamp set was then added to a small piece of vellum with black ink; here i glued the heart, and then trimmed the vellum to size.  The vellum was then attached to the background using glue dots.  Just love the stamp and die set, and it was so easy to put this card together.


Well since we are talking cards, let me show you how i used the Stained Glass Window Stamp and Die set to create two cards with the same design but slightly different finish




For the first one, i used gold embossed the Stained Glass window and cut it with the coordinating die. To detail the die cut, I used the Altenew Alcohol markers -set E-,  and a bit of  Lagoon Metallic Ink Spray.




 I attached the window to the middle of the card ( i had stamped a few images with gold ink) with some foam adhesive,  followed by the sentiment.   A few enamel dots - from Altenew-  and jewels complete the card...   Love how the card turned out, that i decided to recreate the look this time by embossing the Stained Glass Window image with Snow White powder and then using Altenew's Metallic Ink Sprays to detail the flowers.




 This time  i used Altenew's Lagoon Crisp Ink to stamp the circles, and added enamel dots from also from Altenew to complete the card.   Such similar yet diverse looks for cards using the Stained Glass Window image and a bit of Altenew mixed media products.





Since we are still talking cards, then let me show you just a quick idea for the Snail Mail Stamp and Die set.  I love dimension, and the small envelopes were the perfect way to create this color envelope cascade on the card.  I used Altenew's Crisp Inks to create the envelopes, and then used the die set to cut the envelopes and hearts.  Before adding them to the front card panel,  I used the Wispy Begonia stamp set to add the sentiment, and then used foam adhesive to create the rainbow envelope cascade.  Love  how easy it was to put together, and such a cheery and fun card to brighten any birthday.




Well, now  i want to show you how i used one of the new Zodiac Constellation Die to create this page in my personal Journal (Traveller's Notebook).  I was so grateful Altenew added this to my box, especially since both my kids are Capricorn babies.


 For this i used the die to cut the word Capricorm and the small constellation on the one side of the paper. I used gold vellum to back the paper, and then glued it to the Traveller's Notebook.  I used the constellation dies to cut more stars, and used the decorate the page with my kids pictures in it.  To finish, I embossed sentiments from the Simple Flowers stamp set to finish my title.




Here is another project created for my Family Album (the small format album comes from Citrus Twist Kits) and the WIld Rose 3D die set.




  I love Altenew's 3D dies, and the Wild Rose one is simple to put together in a very small amount of time.  The flowers are so colorful and bold that  i added them outside of the page protector to bring their 3D format to live.
                                                                       




Here is another page of my family album.  For this page i used  the new Beautiful Blooms stamp set.  The large stamp is so versatile, and i chose to use it to create the patterned paper for this page.   The image was stamped continuosly to fill the entire length of the page ( the ends of the stamp match!).





The sentiments in this stamp set were perfect to create this page, since i was adding patterned paper behind the picture on the one side of the page, i decided to use the same colors to add just a bit of color detailing to the blooms on the opposite page.   This was so easyto create with such a beautiful stamp.  And now onto the last project ...




This page features the new Wonderland Stamps and Dies set.  The floral images in this stamp set are perfect to create all types of paper crafts, but i took advantage of the long stems ot create movement and dimension on the page. Here is a new video that will show you how this page came together:



How fun are all these new January 2019 stamps and dies. so versatile and beautiful it was hard to put them down -as you can see from all the projects i worked with them!-,but now it is time to  have some fun, and hopefully win some prizes
