Altenew October 2022 Marvelous Monthly Series Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in Total Prizes!)


Hi there!

Welcome to ALTENEW OCTOBER 2022 MARVELOUS MONTHLY SERIES RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY.  You are arriving from Sande Woodson's blog.  A list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience.

Today, we are celebrating the release of this month's beautiful subscription products, and they are gorgeous....  Let me  show you what I have created

The new CRAFT-A-FLOWER: EPIPHYLLUM FLOWER Layering Die Set is beautiful an easy to layer, too!  I  used this set to create this A2 card.

I use the CAF: EPIPHYLLUM Layering Die set to cut all my pieces from white cardstock.  I colored each piece with Altenew Crisp Inks, and layered the pieces together,   I set the card on top of a circle die cut, then added a sentiment from the PAINT-A-FLOWER: WATERLILLY DAHLIA Outline Stamp to complete the card.

I love the new MINI DELIGHT: WILD GERANIUMS stamp/die set!  I used a few colors of Altenew Crisp Inks to create the blossoms and leave for this A2 card.

I created my card panel using the Nesting Oval Die set, then added my MINI DELIGHTS: WILD GERANIUMS to the left of the oval. The sentiment comes from the PAINT-A-FLOWER:  WATERLILLY DAHLIA.   A few gems complete the card.

I actually used the PAINT-A-FLOWER: WATERLILLY DAHLIA to create the embellishments for this new spread in my family's journal.   

I stamped the image twice on watercolor paper ( with Obsidian ink), then detailed the image with watercolor.   A fine sharp pair of scissors helped to fuss cut the images.  Then it was all about setting them on the spread.   This time, I am also using the new CRAFT YOUR LIFE PROJECT KIT:  CASUAL BOUQUETS stamp set to add a small sentiment to the bottom of the pictures.

This month's CRAFT YOUR LIFE PROJECT KIT: CASUAL BOUQUETS is gorgeous.  I am using it to create a new entry in my journal. I just love the combination of the embossed color florals on top of the black and white stamped images.

This was so easy to put together with the help of the embossing folder and layering detailed coloring stencil. 

Finally, I am using the new BUILD-A-GARDEN: DEAR DAHLIAS to create this spread.   This month, the BUILD- A- GARDEN DAHLIAS Add-On Die set actually creates a layered dahlia flower that matches the stamped one!

The new BAG: DEAR DAHLIAS is such a beautiful set, but the add-on die set just takes this set to extraordinary.  You are going to love it!

I cannot wait to see what new monthly subscription you will use in your upcoming projects.
