Altenew May 2020 Stamps/Dies/Stencils Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hi there!
Welcome to the Altenew May 2020 Stamps/Dies/Stencils Release Blog Hop + Giveaway.  You are arriving from Maryam's blog - a list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience-.


Today, Altenew is releasing a new set of products that you are going to love!  As it is a norm each month, i am in love with pretty much the entire release, and got a chance to play with most of it.  So let me show you what i have created...




Who can resist the beautiful Altenew florals. I love the Delicate Bouquet stamp set, and used it to create a card. With so much time spent at home, it was nice to practice some no line watercolor -Artist Watercolor Palette- to create the card panel.




All the soft floral details are just perfect for all types of coloring mediums. Once i finished detailing the flowers, i added a wash of grey watercolor to the background and heat embossed one of the new Shine Like A Diamond Stamp set. A few sequin add pops of shine to the card.



Just like most of the world, we are under quarantine here in Toronto, too.  I have been documenting all our days in my family album, and used the new Inked Lotus and  Mega Brush Alpha stamp sets to create this entry  about all the hand washing and the toll is taking on the hands.



I used a bit of Essential watercolor palette to bring the watercolor look to the background,  Once it dried, i used Antique Gold ink to stamp a few of the new Inked Lotus stamp around the layout.  My title was then created with the new Brush Alpha stamp set. Easy peasy!


This month's sentiments are just so perfect for our new normal, that it made it so easy to create this pocket page layout.  I started by creating the frame for the picture page with the new Blossom Wreath stamp set and light color inks.


The style in the fonts in the Whimsical Flowers and Quotes are just the perfect complement .  I used  two of the sentiments to add the title and substitle to the page.

Now onto the last project for today:



I combined a few products in this scrapbook page.  I started with a bit of watercolor on the background.   Then heat embossed -with Pure White embossing powder -  the grid background of the Shine Like a Diamond onto the center of the page.



I used the new Flowering Cistus stamp set to create all the flowers that are decorating the page.  These are so easy to work with and create beautiful flowers. I just clustered a few along the diagonal line of the project.


All that was left to add was the title;  i used the Mega Brush stamp set to create the title at the bottom of the page!  LOVE how this turned out, and the process of creating the page from white cardstock, stamps, inks and  watercolor.

I am sure that it is so hard to chose a favorite product.  There is so much to love this month.
