Altenew Rustic Charm Stamp/Die/Stencils/Embossing Folders/Washi Tape/Brush Marker/Fine Mister Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)


Hello there!

Welcome to ALTENEW RUSTIC CHARM COLLECTION RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY.   You are arriving from Terri Koszler's blog.  A list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience!

Today's RUSTIC CHARM release is filled with products that will have you ready for the holidays and beyond.  The stamps/dies/stencils/embossing folders/washi tape/ brush marker/fine mister collection is versatile as well as beautiful. These products are perfect for all sorts of paper crafting.  Let me show you what I have created:

For my first project, I am using the new WHIRLWIND FLOWERS STAMP/DIE Bundle to create teh embellishments for my page.  I used pale color inks to create the flowers for the layout.   At the same time, I cut a few leave (using the Just Leaves Die Set).  Since, I am using a pocket page format for the story.  I used the flowers on my title page and journal card.

The new BOLD YOU stamp set was the perfect size to create the title for this project.  I simply stamped  the sentiment with Obsidian ink at the bottom of the title page.

For my next project, I am using the new TRUE FRIENDS Stamp/Die/Coloring Stencil Set Bundle to create all the leaves in the cover of my April journal.  I started by coloring  in the leaves, then embossing the outline with green embossing powder.  Having the coordinating die helps to get the leave branches ready.

I set the leaves on top of kraft paper, then added a few splatters of white and gold ink.  The title is a combination of the Ombre Alpha stamp set and the new HOME SWEET HOME stamp set.

For this new journal entry, I focused on the FLORAL HALOS Stamp/Die set.  This new set is just beautiful, and so versatile.    The new GEL PRINTING SOFT WASHES 6x6 Paper pack  creates the gorgeous color in the flowers -no need to color each floral, just stamp the outline!-

I used the Floral Halos images to create the Title page of my layout. Arranging them in a column, then adding the florals to create a soft zig zag on the page just adds movement and interest to the page.  I used the empty space in each halo to add sentiments from the HOME SWEET HOME stamp set

Of course, I created a few cards for the release.  This one features  the new GOLD SPLATTER COSMIC BERRY WASHI TAPE  and  GOLD FOIL PAINT DRIP Washi Tape in the card panel.  All the hearts are also made from washi tape.  The sentiment comes from the TRUE FRIENDS Stamp set.   Simple and sweet!

For this card, I combined the new LAYERED SNOWFLAKES 3D Embossing Folder with a bit of Antique Gold pigment ink to create the background of the card.  I spritz a bit of water from my new FINE MISTER bottle before embossing the cardstock..


The new LOVELY ORNAMENTS Stamp and Die Set Bundle provide the focus and sentiment for the card.  The gold sentiments are heat embossed on the card, while the detailed die cuts help to create a soft ornament die cut for the card.

For my last card, I am using the new FRAME OF LEAVES 3D Embossing Folder   to create the texture and dimension on the card. The FINE MISTER is perfect to add a  spritz of water to the cardstock before embossing.   A bit of pigment ink to the edges just emphasizes the dimension and detail of the card panel.

The sentiments in the HOME SWEET HOME stamp set  are just perfect.  I am using one of them in the center of my card.  Once again simple and sweet!
