Altenew Exotic Garden Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

4 May 2021

 



Welcome to the Altenew Exotic Garden Blog Hop Release and Giveaway. If you have hopped over from LauraJane's blog you are right on track. You can start the hop over on the Altenew Blog

This release is simply stunning and there is something for everyone. I created a layout and a card. Let's have a look at the layout. I used the Enchanting Beauty Stamp set and coordinating die and created a fun rainbow inspired look.

I stamped one of the long leaf slings several times in different colours and arranged them along the top of my layout. I astamped some of the more compact images to use as embellishments and used the Halftone Hearts Stamp and Die set to create hearts from leftover paper  I coloured with the red ink used on the leaves. The ink colours are from the Rainbow Prism 6 Crisp Dye Ink Mini Set.

A great way to draw attention to a photo is overlaying it with elements. I usually hide unwanted space on the picture this way and it highlights the main parts of the photo. 

A couple of enamel dots in similar colours finish off the look. Super simple but so colourful. 

The card was such fun to create and super easy. I ran some black cardstock through my die cut machine with the Banana Leaf 3D Embossing folder and then coloured the leaves in with Altenew Metallic Watercolors. Isn't the result stunning? 


What has caught your eye in this release? I love so many of the products but the 3D embossing folders are my new favourites.

Altenew Wildflower Paper Crafting Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

29 April 2021

 

Welcome to the Altenew Wildflower Paper Crafting Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway. If you hopped over from Karen Brown's blog you are right on track. You can start the hop over on Altenew Blog.

As a scrapbooker I am always super excited when a new scrapbook collection comes out. This one is full of dark lush colours and beautiful floral images. The die cuts are a perfect addition as embellishments and the floral papers can easily be used for fussy cutting like I did for my layout. 

I am always afraid to use my die cut packs as they are sooo pretty so for my project I decided to cut out flowers from one of the 12*12 patterned papers. The 6*6 papers are perfect for the first layers beneath the photo and then I added florals under and over the photo. 


I love how easy it is to create a simple layout. I still need to add some journaling but my printer was out of ink so I couldn't print my labels. 


Giveaway Prizes:

$200 in total prizes! To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 2 lucky winners and a $20 gift certificate to 5 winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or each designer’s blog post on the blog hop list below by 05/05/2021 for a chance to win. 


Altenew will draw 7 random winners from the comments left on each stop of this blog hop and announce the winners on the Altenew Winners Page on 05/07/2021.

Altenew 7th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway (over $1,400 in Total Prizes)

9 April 2021



Welcome to the day 2 of Altenew's 7th Anniversary Blog Hop. If you have come from Terri Koszler's blog you are right on track. You can start the hope over on the Altenew Blog.

I have been on the Altenew team for many years and am amazed at each release. The products push me a little further each time and spark my crafty fire. When I prepare my projects I love using notebooks to jot down my ideas. I decided to customise an old notebook which I hadn't used yet for my Altenew ideas and deadlines. 

This project was super simple as I just wanted to create a new cover for my notebook. I cut down some chalkboard cardstock which is nice and thick and added an Altenew decal. I wrote my name with a white pen and that was it. Super easy and now I have a custom notebook for all my Altenew ideas.





You can see how I created my notebook in the video below or watch it in HD on YouTube. 



Here are some my favourite projects from the previous year created with Altenew products.
