Altenew July 2022 Summer Love Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in Total Prizes!)


Hello there!

Welcome to ALTENEW JULY 2022 SUMMER LOVE COLLECTION RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY. You are arriving from Adriana Arminio's blog.   A list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this page for your convenience.

Today, we are celebrating the release of the a new set of set of embossing folders, stencils, and the new scoring board.  So much to chose from, so let's me show you what I have created with  some of these products.

I love the design of the new SUNSHINE BLOSSOMS 3D EMBOSSING FOLDER.  It provides the perfect placement for your focal point in a card, and any other paper crafting project.

I started with teal cardstock, then added dark teal ink to the folder before embossing.   Once the image was created, I rubbed a little gold ink on the raised images, and added a simple sentiment. 


I love the new PLAYFUL CIRCLES 3D EMBOSSING FOLDER.  The possibilities are endless!  But, I wanted to show case the linearity of the pattern in this card.

I used the folder to emboss the card at different angles, then masked a section of each area to add color through ink blending.  A simple sentiment, and voila!

The new CRAFTER'S ESSENTIAL SCORING BOARD is probably a favorite thing for the year.  I used it to create the rosettes for this card!

Of course, I am in love with the new GEO TRIANGLES 3D EMBOSSING FOLDER, and COLORING STENCIL BUNDLE.  I used them to create the background for my journal entry.

I embossed the cardstock, then add color using the  stencil.   Once, I fit it to the background, I am using the left over piece to tie the two pages together.

For my last page, I am using the new FANTASY EMBLEM 3D EMBOSSING FOLDER to create the journaling page of this spread.

I  used the colors of the picture to color the embossed area.   I embossed the top and bottom of the page, so that I can get the journaling in the page.

The new SUMMER LOVE COLLECTION is amazing!  I cannot wait to see what you create with these products.   Remember to check Altenew's promotion to celebrate the release
