Altenew Quiet Reflections Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Inks/Embossing Folders Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 Hello there!

Welcome to  ALTENEW'S QUIET REFLECTIONS STAMPS/DIES/STENCILS/INKS/EMBOSSING FOLDERS COLLECTION Release Blog Hop + Giveaway.   You are arriving from Amy Hill's blog; a list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience.

Today's Altenew is a large and GORGEOUS one, there is so much to choose from, right on time for Christmas ( hint**!).   What can I say, each month we are all floored by the products that arrive in our boxes!  But let's get started with showing you what I have created for today's hop:

Let's start with the  only card made for today's hop.  I am not fan of fish, but the new GOLDFISH POND STAMP/DIE SET is just perfect.  First, I used a bit of watercolor (Artist Watercolor Palette) on  watercolor paper ( Altenew's Loose Leaf watercolor paper) to recreate a small pond on the panel.  While the background dried, I used the GOLDFISH POND STAMP/DIE SET to create two of the fish images.

I used the new DELICATE POLKADOTS WASHI TAPE to cover the edges of the card front.  I used a combination of phrases from the GOLDFISH POND STAMP SET and TRANQUILITY ROSE Stamp set to finish the card.   Simple and beautiful!

Of course, I focused on memory keeping for the rest of my projects, let's get started...

The new DOTS AND BOXES Stamp set is just so versatile.  I combined the stamp with the new colors of inks from MARTIAN TERRAIN set. to create the ombre color boxes on the background of the layout and cards.

I added small strips of the new DELICATE STRIPES WASHI TAPE to bring some interest to the background and bring some of the gray and black tones from the pictures!

For the b side of the previous layout, I continued using the DOTS AND BOXES Stamp set to create the backgrounds for the page and card.  This time, however, I used the NORTHERN SHORE INK SET to bring tones of blue to the page.

I chose to use the TRANQUILITY ROSE STAMP AND DIE SET to create the embellishments for the page.   The floral images in this stamp are just beautiful! So, I stamped the large rose and then used the Woodless Watercolor Pencils to create a no line look for it.  I kept the rest of the images to black and white so that the flower will be the focus of the page.   Once again, just love how it turned out!

Give me all the flowers!  The new BLISSFUL BLOSSOMS STAMP AND DIE SET is probably one of the favorites from this release.  The flowers are easy to layer, and the leaf flourishes can add movement and interest to any project.

I created a small grouping of the flowers, and moved them into the picture.  All the color is perfect for the story.  Then finished the page with a title and sentiments from the DOTS AND BOXES Stamp set.  Just love this page!

My last project combines a few of the release products in one page.   First of all, I used the INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES STAMP SET to create the floral wreath ( Woodless Watercolor pencils are amazing to work with!).   I then used the DOTS AND BOXES STAMP SET to create the backing card for my picture.

I used a quote from the TRANQUILITY ROSE stamp set  to add the sentiment to this page. The new NATURE WONDERS INK SET is the ideal color for the stamped images (and the Fall season, too!).  Probably my favorite project from this hop.   Hope you  have been inspired with all of them!
