ALTENEW APRIL 2019 WASHI TAPE / EMBOSSING PASTE RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY



Hi there,
Welcome to the ALTENEW APRIL 2019 WASHI TAPE / EMBOSSING PASTE RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY,  you are arriving from Virginia's blog.

I am so excited to be taking part of today's blog hop as i get to use the new washi tapes, and the lovely embossing paste.  What can i say, these are all so lovely and easy to work with  that a lot of projects came together in a short amount of time.  Let me show you:




The new washi tapes are versatile, and the colors in the new Misty Meadows tape were the perfect color to document my sister's recent family vacation in my family album (Life Crafted Album from Citrus Twist Kits).  So, first i covered a piece of cardstock with the tape, and used the Floral Heart Frame Die to cut a frame from the center of the page.




I backed space with Vellum, and then added a sentiment in a small label.  For the other side of this page, i used  a piece of washi taped covered cardstock to back the picture, and then embellished the page with fussy cut florals from the Botanical Rhapsody washi tape ( it had been added to vellum prior cutting)





Love how the washi tape made this page come together so easily, but since i had the heart frame, i decided to use it on the other side of this layout.



First, i covered the page with a piece of the Gold String Washi tape, and used an exacto knife to detail the heart cut out.  I added the heart frame to in the heart outline, and then added a label with the title for this page ( chipboard sticker from the Reflections Scrapbook Kit)





To finish this layout, the next page was covered with the Misty Meadows washi tape, a few embellishments around the picture complete this page.   Like i mentioned before, the washi tapes are a must in your stash, their versatility is out of this world, and now let's talk about that glorious Embossing Paste.



The new Embossing Paste is amazing, and it can be used in many applications that would enhance your cards, and scrapbook pages.   The next few projects were all created  from using the same Embossing mixture.



A bit of Lagoon Shimmer Ink Spray was mixed with the Embossing paste and applied with an stencil brush through the Flowing BUtterfly stencil for this layout.   The soft Gold Trim washi tape complements the colors of the embellishments, and the acetate butterfly just completes this page.




The same mixture was also used to create the background and embellishments for this set of cards.  First the Embossing Paste / Ink Spray mixture was added to a piece of heavy cardstock using the Square Weave stencil, and set to dry completely  before use.



Using the Halftone Nesting Hearts Die set, a few hearts were cut from the embossed cardstock.   The card base was created by adding a piece of  the Gold String washi tape to a card base.  The die cut hearts were then stacked using foam adhesive; the sentiment -from the Frilled Petals Stamp set- was embossed to the card.




The remaining piece of embossed cardstock was then trimmed and attached to a pre made card base.  A piece of the Golden Trim washi tape was added to the bottom of this piece. A flower and leaves were then added to the card (these were created with the Wallpaper Art set), followed by a gold embossed sentiment from the Handpicked Bouquet Stamp set.




The same embossing paste was added through the Watercolor Stripes stencil to create an ombre look in the center of the page.   I used the Teal Shadow washi tape to create all the florals for  this page ( first i attached the washi to vellum, and fussy cut all the florals from it).   I used a piece of papers from the Verdant Walk collection to back the picture, and embellish the page with stickers and die cuts from the Live Your Dream collection and enamel dots.  The next process video will show you how the Embossing Paste mixture was used to create all these projects:




I love how these turned out, and how many projects i was able to create with the embossing paste mixture.   Remember to stop by Altenew to check all these amazing products, and now it is time for a little GIVEAWAY:
