Altenew Modern & Edgy Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello there!

Welcome to ALTENEW MODERN & EDGY STAMPS/DIES/STENCILS/EMBOSSING FOLDERS COLLECTION RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY.  You are arriving from Michelle Short'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 are modern, diverse, beautiful and so versatitle.   In addition to the stamps/dies/stencils/embossing folders, Altenew is releasing two new sets of my most favorite inks...

I love all the release, and create a few projects by combining some of the products.  Let me show you...

Let's start with some cards.   I used the new  CONNECTED 3D EMBOSSING FOLDER to create the background of my card.  A bit of Antique Gold pigment ink just highlights the texture of the card. 

I am using the outline image of the new FRESH BLOOM STAMP/DIE BUNDLE to create the focal point of my card, then adding a simple sentiment strip created with the WOVEN STRIPES stamp set.

For my next card, I am using the new DIAMOND FRAME COVER DIE to create the panel of my card.  I cut this from white and gold cardstock,  stacked the die cuts, and then adhere them to a black panel.  I used the negative parts of the white die cuts to create the outer edges and center detail in the card.

The sentiment was cut from Glitter cardstock using the new FANCY HUGS DIE.  Just a few gold pearls complete the card!

One of my favorite ways to use pigment ink is creating monoprints in my gel plate. I used the new GLACIER CAVES PIGMENT INK SET and the WOVEN STRIPES STAMP SET to create the small triangles in the journal page.

I used the triangle design of the DOODLED TRIANGLE Stamp set to create the background of the picture page.   One of the new designs from the MESMERAZING POURS 6x6 PAPER PACK  frames the photo, and two sentiments from the MODERN HELLO and WOVEN STRIPES stamp sets create the title for the page. 

For my last project, I am using the new MEADOW BUILDER STENCIL SET, and  SUMMER AFTERNOON PIGMENT INK set to create the background of the page.   I used a combination of the PIGMENT INKS and the MODERN HELLO  STAMP SET to create the title of my page.

The new MESMERAZING POURS PAPER PACK had the perfect pattern to frame the photo, and then I finished my page with the new ESSENTIAL BLACK AND WHITE ENAMEL DOTS

I hope these offered some inspiration on what you can do with the new products.   Now, let's move onto the fun part of this hop, GIVEAWAY!!!
