Altenew Adventures Ahead Stamps/Dies/Stencils/More Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello there!

Welcome to ALTENEW ADVENTURES AHEAD STAMPS/DIES/STENCILS/MORE  COLLECTION RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY.  You are arriving fromMichelle's Short blog.   A complete list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience.

Today, Altenew is releasing a brand new set of products that are sure to fit your paper crafting needs and wants.  With so many beautiful designs, it was easy to create a few projects, let me show you:

The new COLOR BANDS DIE SET is  a must, it is perfect for all types of projects, because a rainbow is always a good thing.  I have paired the die set with the new DREAMY SUNSET PAPER PACK, the colors in this paper pack are just lovely.

Once  I had created the rainbows, I decided to use in a grid formation in my Gratitude journal.  I combined  the new SAY YES stamp set and ENJOY THE JOURNEY stamp set to create the title and sentiments in the page.   Just love how easy it all came together!

I love washi tape! And the new LAPIS LAZULI SLIM WASHI TAPE SET is probably a  new favorite.   I used this to help me anchor my pocket page spread.  I started by stamping the  cards using a light gray ink and the ENJOY THE JOURNEY STAMP SET.   Then, I used the washi tape to create the diagonal stripes on the cards.   Here, I used  the ENJOY THE JOURNEY STAMP & DIE bundle to create the camera icon.  Lastly, I used the new BLOOMING GARDEM DECAL to add the second sentiment to the second card.

I reached for a large tag, and carried the washi design.  I backed the picture with a piece of paper from the new RAINBOW BLOTS PAPER PACK. I stamped a sentiment from the ENJOY THE JOURNEY stamp set in a small paper strip, and used it as the title for the page. I love how this turned out!

I just love the new SISTERS OF THE HEART STAMP/DIE/COLORING STENCIL bundle. It was so easy to create the florals in a short amount of time -with lovely results- for this new spread in my daily journal.

I used papers from the RAINBOW BLOTS PAPER PACK as layers behind the pictures, and then added a small sentiment from the stamp set to complete my page!  

And for my last projects, I made cards!!!

I used the new POLKA DOT BUDS STENCIL  to create the background for the card.   Using the Shades of Purple and Spring Bouquet Ink sets, and ink blending tools, I created the soft ombre effect on the card background.   A small clear drop in the center of each flower completes the background.

I used the SISTERS OF THE HEART stamp set to create my sentiment strip, and attached it to the card with a  bit of foam adhesive.  Simple and sweet!!

For my last card, I stamped the new INKY BOUQUET design at the bottom of a card panel, then proceeded to partially fussy cut the lower part of the bouquet, so that the panel shows a partial die cut of the floral.

I backed the card with a panel of cardstock from the DREAMY SUNSET PAPER PACK, then finished the card with a simple title  and ink blots -both from the same stamp set-.  Just love how this turned out!
