Welcome to Altenew Beauty of the Season Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Release Blog Hop + Giveaway. You are arriving from Virginia's blog ( aren't her projects amazing). You can find a list of all the participants at the bottom of this post -for your convenience-.
Today, Altenew is releasing a new set of amazing products. There is so much variety in this release, but also a bit of Holiday cheer! It is always hard to choose favorites, each month the releases are better and better, but Fall happens to be a favorite time of the season... just saying! Let me show you what i have created...
The new Kind Reminders Stamp, Die and Simple Coloring Stencil is a must! We are all fans of Altenew's floral images, and these one is a beauty. The perfect size for cards, scrapbook layouts and Traveler's Notebooks.
The new Simple Coloring stencil are the easiest way to bring the flowers to live. This time, i used the Spring Bouquet ink set to details the flowers using the Ink Blending Tool, then used Mocha Ink to stamp the outline of the flowers. The sentiments of this stamp set are amazing, which made it easy to complete this page.
Let's continue with more memory keeping. This time, i used the new POSITIVE VIBES Stamp/Die set
and Summer Afternoon, and Tropical Forest mini ink Cube sets
to create my layout.
I used the outline image of the stamp to create a border around the page, and also the title card. I then accented the image of one of our family video chats with the complete colored image of the flower weaving through the pictures. Once again, i used the stamp sentiments to create the title of this spread!.
I did mentioned that Fall is my favorite season because of the weather, but also because I love my Gratitude Journal ( which launches along with Canada's Thanksgiving). So, when I saw the new AUTUMN BOUNTY Stamp Die Bundle
and the GRAPE LEAVES Stamp Die Bundle,
i knew they will be a great starting point for the title pages of my journals.
For the first cover, I used Antique Gold Embossing powder to create the leaf frame from the AUTUMN BOUNTY stamp set,
and then colored the leaves with Metallic watercolor. This was attached with dimensional adhesive to the page, then i used the negative part of the die cut to add the title using the same stamp set. I will add more details later on, as i start filling my journal.
For my second title page cover, i used Altenew inks to stamp the GRAPE LEAVES images and cut them out using the GRAPE LEAVES die set.
Instead of detailing the leaves with the stamp set, I cut metallic Rose gold and copper kraft paper using the GRAPE LEAVES Die Set
. These were attached to the corners of the page, and i added a simple embossed sentiments, but i will most likely add a few more stickers and so on as i start working on my journals. Just love these, though!
For my last projects, i want to show you a few ideas that i have been playing with for my Christmas packaging ( cause let's face it there will be a lot of shipping happening as we will not be able to be together on Christmas).
I started with simple gift tags. The tag was created using the new HOLIDAY TAG DIE SET
from white cardstock. Here i used the new HOLIDAY TAG SENTIMENTS Stamp set
to add the Holly branches and sentiments. I kept the tag simple so my kids can reproduce the tags and have them ready for packing!
This tag is one that we will be using to decorate gifts that are going overseas (my whole family is back in my native Ecuador). For this, I used the HOLIDAY TAG Die Set
to cut the tag from white cardstock, and then used the FESTIVE FLORAL FRAME Stamp set
to add the floral details to the tag with Obsidian ink; then heat embossed ( red embossing powder) a sentiment from the HOLIDAY TAG SENTIMENTS Stamp set.
Just love the simple tag as a decoration to the boxes, and it will be easy for my kids to mass produce about 30 of these.
This last tag is one will be using for all the presents going to our good friends and neighbours. This time, i cut the tag from black cardstock, and gold embossed a sentiment from the HOLIIDAY TAG SENTIMENTS
on its center. I used the POINSETTIA 3D DIE Set
to cut a part of the flower from Pink metallic kraft paper. I assembled the flower and then glued it to the bottom right corner of the tag. These tags are so easy to put together, that we will be having a craft night to have them ready before the season starts.
