Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Chamomile Outline Stamp Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 


Hi there!

Welcome to ALTENEW PAINT-A-FLOWER: CHAMOMILE OUTLINE STAMP SET RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY.  You are arriving from Joylita Dsouza's blog.  A list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience.



Today we are celebrating Altenew's PAINT-A-FLOWER: CHAMOMILE Outline Stamp set.  Though, I am a coffee lover, I can seriously say that this stamp set is awesome, and if you are a tea drinker, then it is amazing!   I love the small details and cup design, and decided to use it for a new memory keeping layout ( sometimes, stamps and stories just line up!)




I used both of the images to help me tell the story of the day.     I used the large tea cup design to create a journal card for my spread.  




I stamped the image on heavy cardstock with Obsidian ink, then color it using Altenew's Artist Markers.  While the color set completely, I cut a 3x4 card from white cardstock;  using an ink blending tool, I added a bit of color to the background.  



I fussy cut the image, and attached it to the colored card.  The sentiment comes from the same stamped set.   I repeated the same procedure for the other image, but decided to stamp the image with Frayed Leaf mixed media instead (this softens the edges of the image)




I love how the page turned out.  I cannot wait to see what you all create with the new PAINT-A-FLOWER: CHAMOMILE Outline Stamp set.   




Remember you can always subscribe to the Monthly PAF plan, and receive the stamp at your doorstep for a lower monthly cost.  Click here for  more info.

Altenew Suddenly Spring Stand-alone Dies Release Blog Hop + Giveaway($300 in Total Prizes)

 



Hello there!

Welcome to ALTENEW SUDDENLY SPRING STAND-ALONE DIES RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY.  You are arriving from the always amazing Jennifer McGuire's blog.  A list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience.



This month's new Stand-Alone dies are amazing, and then there is the new Instant Dimension Foam Tape..OM Word!   So much goodness in one single release it was hard to narrow down to a favorite, so instead, I pretty much used all the things in my projects.  Let me show you:



 The new MINI FLOWER CLUSTER LAYERING DIE SET is gorgeous, and so easy to layer that you will be creating flowers for days!  Of course, I had to use it to add a new entry in my journal.   




Just love these floral clusters from the new MINI FLOWER CLUSTER LAYERING DIE SET!  But the new SLIM SENTIMENTS DIE SET is probably one I will go back to. The design of the sentiments works great on cards ( slimline cards) but also can be trimmed and stacked in journal cards for titles!!!



I just love these two new die sets, and probably will go into the frequent use stash!!   But let me show you another idea to use the new dies in memory keeping...



The new CIRCULAR ELEMENTS DIE SET is a fun new die that works great in cards and layouts!   This time, I am pairing it with a few of the smaller elements from the WHIMSICAL GARDEN LAYERING DIE SET. 




I took advantage of the open circle spaces to add the small floral details.  I used the negative piece of the cut outs to accent the design  on my page.   Love how easy it came together.   




Of course, I created a few cards using the new die sets.  Starting with this clean and simple design using the new FANCY KISSES DIE and Red Sunset Slim Washi Tape set.




A few pieces of washi tape, topped with the new FANCY KISSES DIE  ( stacked die cuts ) and a few gold gems = simple perfection!




Did I mentioned, that I am loving the new INSTANT DIMENSION FOAM TAPE.  It literally is the easiest way to create dimension on your projects.   I paired it with the new 3D BANNER DIE SET, Mini Delights Smile Blooms in this card.




The new Foam Tape is helping keep the banner together while adding the dimension to the fold of the banner.    Just love how this turned out!




For my last project, I combined a few of the new dies into one slimline card.  It all worked so well!!!




I cut a panel using the Nesting Slim Rectangles die set. Next, I used the new  REFLECTIONS DIE to cut two die cuts, and glued them onto the card panel.    The Craft-A-Flower: Antique Rose Layering Die set creates the perfect focal point for this card.




The DECORATIVE SWIRLS DIE SET creates awesome leaves (lots of movement in them), they work perfect for the slim line size.   The last touch a small sentiment, once again the new SLIM SENTIMENTS DIE SET is just perfect for this -as you can trim the sentiments to fit your design!-.


I am sure you are all ready to start ordering.  Remember to take advantage of Altenew's promotions:
