Altenew April 2022 Spring Garden Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)


Hello there!

Welcome to ALTENEW SPRING GARDEN BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY. You are arriving from Katrina Howe's blog.  A list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience.





Today's new Spring Garden collection is filled with beautiful dies, stencils, and stamp that are sure to make all your projects just perfect for the season.  Let me show you what I have created




I love the new BOUNTIFUL BOUQUET Stamp/Die Bundle.  The floral cluster in this set is perfect for all types of paper crafting, and that includes memory keeping.



I created the two Bountiful images to frame the story of one of my latest Family Journal entries... Love how it turned out!




The new  VIBRANT FLORALS Hot Foil Plate and Coloring Stencil are the perfect size to create the title page of my TN journal.



Once, the cover was created, I used  the negative foil piece to create the reverse look of the VIBRANT FLORALS hot Foil plate for a card front.  Next time, I need a card, all I need to do is add a sentiment and ready to go!






I combined the new MORNING BLOOMS Hot Foil Plate and Coloring Stencil to create two cards.   I simply  used the hot foil plate, then colored the images with the stencil. A simple sentiment, and done!  Then, I used the negative foil piece to create the reverse foil image for a card panel. Added a die cut sentiment, and ready to go!




I repeated the same idea for my next cards








I bunched a few of the ITTY BITTY BRANCHES together, and tied them to a label.  The Colorful Soul stamp set was just perfect for the sentiment.




I used the negative foil card panel from the CHEVRON BACKGROUND hot foil plate to create the background of this card. I repeated the label and sentiment look for the card, but chose a Climber Flower die cut piece as  the embellishment for the card!

I hope these have given you a few ideas on what you can create with some of the new products available in this release.

Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Gerbera Revolution Outline Stamp Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($200 in Total Prizes)

 


Hello there!

Welcome to ALTENEW PAINT-A-FLOWER: GERBERA REVOLUTION OUTLINE STAMP SET RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY. You  are arriving from Teresa Litchfield's blog.  A list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience.




This month's new PAINT-A-FLOWER: GERBERA REVOLUTION is so pretty, and just perfect for all types of coloring formats.   Let me show you what I have created




I used the new PAF: GERBERA REVOLUTION Stamp set to create a slimline card ( OMG, I made a card!).  I loved the size of the stamp, and wanted to use it in two ways in one card.




I stamped the PAF: GERBERA REVOLUTION twice on two card panels.   I used my stamping platform to make sure both images had the same look.  I then used the Nesting Labels die set to cut one of the panels, and set it aside.




Using Altenew Artist Markers, I  colored fully the other card panel.  Using a bit of foam adhesive, I set the stamped label on top of the colored image.  This brings interest to the card.  I then used the  Simple Sentiment Die set to create the sentiment for the card.  A bit of foam adhesive adds dimension behind the  sentiment on the card.




A few scattered gems complete the card.  I just love how this turned out.  Remember to check the new PAINT-A-FLOWER:  GERBERA REVOLUTION Outline Stamp Set, or better yet consider using the Altenew Subscription Program to receive your monthly stamp at your doorstep
