ALTENEW JANUARY 2020 STAMP/DIE/STENCIL RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY



Hi there!
Welcome to the ALTENEW JANUARY 2020 STAMP/DIES/STENCIL RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY. You are arriving from Nicole Watt's blog  ( a list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post).



I am so excited to join in today's release as there are a new set of possibilities being open with these Altenew goodies. With so much to chose from, i created quite a few projects, so let's get started:


Sweet Golden Hour




The new Wild Flora Stamp and Die set were used to create this layout about that magical hour of the day.   The delicate and intricate design in the flowers is just precious, so i decided to stamp a few of the images onto white heavy cardstock using Black Obsidian Pigment ink.  






To emphasize the details of the Wild Flora stamped images, i used my blending brushes to add a few touches of Sugar Plums and Fall Harvest mini ink sets on the background of a 8.5x11 paper.  I attached this to a 12x12 piece of fuchsia cardstock, and then added the picture and florals to create a diagonal design on the page.





To finish the page, i added a few touches of gold around the picture, and a title made with the Script Words 3 die set and plum cardstock.    The small gems and sequin on the page help to guide your eye through the simple but gorgeous flowers.  Just love how this came together.


Plant Lady




As soon as i saw the new Bold Drape stamp set and the Mod Vases Stamp/Die/Stencil set, i knew i can easily combine them to create a layout about my plant-loving-mom.     I started by creating the background for the layout using the Bold Drape Stamp set and Silverstone crisp ink.




To make the color of the flower pot stand out, i stamped the single floral images with Spring Bouquet set inks, and fussy cut them out.   I used the Mod Vase Die set to cut a few of the vases out of white cardstock.    I aligned the Mod Vase Stencil set on top of each of the vases, and mask an area with washi tape, then added a bit of Industrial Diamond ink to the vases.   All that was left to do is add foam adhesive and complete the page with them.  Simple and colorful!


He is Nine





Who doesn't love a versatile background stamp!   The new Tartan stamp set is amazing and gives you so many options to customize your one-of-a-kind background.  I decided to combine two layouts into one by combining the colors in the tartan print and decorations.




I chose Lapis Lazuli and  Red Sunset mini ink sets as well as Black Obsidian ink to create the first Tartan background on white cardstock.  I used the print to back the picture and cut the large heart (using the Halftone Hearts Die set).  I set all of this on gray cardstock and added embellishments to match the colors.



For the second page, i chose to vary the colors of the Tartan design, and used Limestone ink for the background of the background.   This time i cut the heart from the same cardstock as the background of the first layout, and added blue behind the picture.  I chose to cut the Congrats Frame die four times from white cardstock.  The newDie Cutting Metal Shim is perfect to obtain a crisp image of the frames.



I cut the word  out of the frame stacked them together, and used it as decoration for the layouts.  The Tartan stamp set is so versatile, a real must have!


Hello 44





I love simple large outline stamps, as you can customize them to create your own designs, so i pulled the new Incredible Stamp/Die set to create this page about my latest celebration.




The flowers in the Incredible Stamp set are amazing, but there are no leaves to match the set, so i decide to use the Retro Plantines stamp set to white emboss a frame all around the layout.     I added a soft color background using  inks and my ink blending brush, and then added the embossed images,  These create a soft textured background for the page.





While the background set, i used Enchanted Gold Ink and Crystal Clear embossing powder to create the outline of each of the flowers.  Though Alcohol markers are not my favorite way of coloring, i decided to detail each of the flowers with the teal markers from Altenew Artist Marker set D.  





I used the cake toppers to create the title of the page, and then used the Hello sentiment from the Retro Plantines stamp set to complete the title work.


Remember That Day





This is probably my favorite layout of this release.  I combined the Rounded Rectangles Die Set and Simple Beauty Stamp and Die set to create this page about a very special soul, Brandi Kinkaid.





I used the Rounded Rectangles die set to create all the wonky frames that form the background from a Our Family collection paper.  A bit of foam adhesive help to keep them in place.   The color in Brandi's shirt was the inspiration for the page  and the colors in the flowers ( Sweet Dream and Summer Afternoon Ink sets).    The following video will show you how this page came together:





Oh, how i love this page, and Brandi, too!   I think the new releases are some of my most favorite stamp sets.  There is such versatility and variety in design that i cannot wait to see how you all will use the sets in your projects.

    Hello,
    The Incredible flower set is amazing! Your use of teal to color those flowers was just right! I like how you used the Rounded Rectangle dies in your scrapbook page, to soften those rectangular shapes. And many more stamps and dies to add to my wishlist from Altenew!
