Welcome to the ALTENEW MINI DELIGHT: STRENGTH RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY... you are arriving from, my friend, Jaycee's blog (isn't he amazing!). A list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post.
Altenew is releasing a new monthly release (subscription), Mini Delight. Our Mini Delight is released monthly and features a 2x3 stamp set with a coordinating die/die set. Although the sets are small, they are incredibly versatile and can be used to create a variety of projects! The themes of the sets span across our full range of categories (including floral, geometric, sentiments, and more) and we are confident that it will delight you from month to month!
Isn't this just such a lovely set, but let me show you the stamp in action..
For my first project, i chose to showcase the stamp to create a layout in my Family album. Since i had just got the picture of my little after a hard week, the stamp was just perfect to document it.
I started with heavy cardstock as my base and added a bit of Altenew watercolor to the background so that it resembles rain dripping on the page. Once it dried, i used Pure white embossing powder to stamp the feather image on the background as if cascading from the sky. I chose to superembossed the tip of the feather with clear gold embossing powder.
To balance the title page, i chose to keep the journal part of the layout simple, but chose to emboss and cut three of the feathers. I used the Metallic watercolor Palette to color them in gold and silver, and added two to the bottom of the journal along with the Mini Delight: Strength sentiment.
The other feather was used to embellish the title work on the mixed media background. Just love how easy it came together, and how the stamp set was perfect for this.
Of course the new Mini Delight: Strength can be used to create colorful cards. For this, i chose to first stamp the tip of the feather with Citrus Burst and Sea Breeze Crisp ink. Then used Moon Rock crisp ink to stamp the feather outline on top of the color feather tips, thus completing the image. I repeated this until the entire card front was filled.
I then used the stamp set and chose to embossed the outline using Obsidian Black ink and crystal Clear embossing powder. I added a bit of color to the tips of the feathers using the Metallic Watercolor palette.
I used Pure White embossing powder to heat emboss the sentiment of the stamp set to a piece of navy cardstock. I cut a strip of the paper (with the sentiment) and glued it to the card. A bit of foam adhesive was all i needed to make the embossed feathers pop.
Now that you have seen the small Mini Delight: Strength stamp set in action, it is time to check it out, and add it to your collection.
