Altenew Thanks and Blessings Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)


Hi there!

Welcome to ALTENEW THANKS AND BLESSINGS STAMP/DIES/STENCILS/EMBOSSING FOLDERS COLLECTION RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY.  You are arriving from Verity Biddlecombe's blog.   A list of all the participants  is available at the bottom of this post for your  convenience.

Today's release is beautiful, versatile, filled with awesome goodies, and oh so so amazing!  It was hard to pick a favorite from this bundle!   But, I loved working with my product choices... Let me show you

The new CARTOON TULIPS stamp/die set is probably a new favorite.   It has a layered look, but can also has an beautiful outline that can be colored with your favorite medium. I decided to use the outline to stamp the bottom border of the journal page.  Then created a few with layered color to serve as the embellishment for the page.

I am also using the new FLORAL THANKS stamp set to create the title for this page. The sentiments and bold look of the stamp is one that will be well used and loved in my year-long Gratitude and daily Journals.

I love stencils, and the new BLOCK BUILDER Stencil set is awesome.  There are so many looks you can create with the stencil set, just by rotating them.   I am using this to create a new entry in my Daily Journal, and document the reno being made in our place.

I created the title for the page using the All About You Words die set and Fine Alpha die set.   The new  GREATEST BLESSING stamp set is filled with awesome sentiments. So, I chose one of them to serve as a subtitle/sentiment for this page.

One of my most favorite things in this world in mixed media.  So, when I saw the new MIXED MEDIA PALETTE KNIFE SET in my DT box, there was  small squeal in the air.   

Just look at the texture you can create with it through a stencil ( Halftone Stencil) with Embossing paste.   Once that dried, I just added a bit of Lagoon and Antique Gold Metallic Ink Sprays for the color drips.

I am once again using the new GREATEST BLESSINGS stamp & die bundle to create the title and journal card of this pocket page spread.

Finally, this is the only card, I created with this release's products.  I combined  the new WALNUT BRANCH 3D Embossing Folder with a bit of gold ink to create the front of the card.

For the card sentiment, I am combining the new ALL ABOUT THANKS WORDS DIE SET and GREATEST BLESSINGS Stamp set.    A few color pearls complete the CAS look of the card.   

I loved working on all these projects, and I am sure you all are making a  list of products you want.  Remember to take advantage of Altenew's promotions...

And now, it is time for a small GIVEAWAY!
