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!
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.
