Altenew March 2022 Folktales & StoriesCollection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)


Hello there!

Welcome to ALTENEW MARCH 2022 FOLKTALES & STORIES COLLECTION RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY.  You are arriving from Coleen Balija's blog.  A list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience.

Today's release is filled with a wide variety of products that are sure to fit all types of crafting.   It was so hard to decide a favorite from this group, but I had fun with my choices.  Let me show you:

The new BOTANICAL BOOKMARK STAMP/DIE Bundle is probably a new favorite or me. I decided to use it to create the cover page of my Reading Journal for 2022.

I created a few book shelves (Tall Tale stamp set)  at the bottom of the page, then added the floral " READ" letters as part of the title of the page.   

For this layout, I am using the new ENDLESS FLORESCENCE STAMP/DIE BUNDLE to create the delicate vellum corner pieces on the page.

A  bit of alcohol ink for the background just highlights the details of the  delicate vellum die cuts.

I am so happy to see stencils that coordinate past Paint-a-Flower releases.  The new PAINT-A-FLOWER: CAMELLIA stencis perfect to color the stamp images in a flash!

I used the PAF Camelia to create the  bottom of the page border, then just matched the stencil and detailed the flowers in a flash!


For the last two projects, I am using the new GEOMETRIC BOTANY Stamp set for the background of each of them.

I cut the background into two pieces with the BOTANICAL BOOKMARK Die Set.  For the first bookmark, I simply filled most of the stamped image with color using the GEOMETRIC BOTANY stamp set, and color inks, then added a small sentiment from ROSY BLOOMS Stamp Set.  

I trimmed the second bookmark to serve as a band in an A2 card panel.  I am adding color to the card, by using the ROSY BLOOMS Stamp/Die bundle and embossing powder to create one floral bloom; this was colored with Artist markers.  Once set on the card, then, I used the new FANCY KISSES stamp set to add the sentiment to the card. 

I hope these have inspired you, and you are checking the new release.  Remember that Altenew is running a few promotions to celebrate the release.
