Altenew August 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

8 August 2019

 Welcome to the August Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop and Giveaway. If you have hopped over from Laura Volpes's blog then you are right on track. You can start the hop on the Altenew Card Blog.

For today's hop, I created a card using my Misti tool to create a symmetrical look. This is really easy to do with a stamping tool.


How to:


  1. Place your white piece of card (4.25" by 5.5") in the corner of your stamping tool. 
  2. Place the stamp in the correct position in the opposite corner. I decided to let the image drop over the edge. 
  3. Stamp the first layer then flip the card 180° and stamp the same image in the opposite corner.$
  4. Stamp your second image and flip again. 
  5. Continue until you are done. 

By using the stamping tool, you will not have to remove the image from your tool. All you need to do is flip the cardstock. This process will help you speed up cardmaking especially if you need to create a whole batch of cards.

Altenew July 2019 Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

23 July 2019

Welcome to the Altenew July 2019 Stencil Blog Hop and Giveaway. If you have hopped over from Caly Person's blog you are right on track. You can start on the Altenew Card Blog.

Today's hop features Altenew's new stencils. For today's hop, I created a card using the Milky Way Stencil.

I used a die-cut from the Halftone Hearts Die Set and masked off the middle section with some masking tape. I then stenciled the larger hearts milky way with some yellow ink. 
I placed the heart on some patterned paper from the 6x6 Black & White Paper Pad, added a center panel and a sentiment embossed on some black paper.


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

They have been created with the crafter in mind, yet are versatile and timeless enough for anyone looking to add more beauty to their life.

 The colours in the set matched the colours in my office/scraproom perfectly so I decided to put them on the side of the cupboard behind my desk and added a couple to the side wall. I love how it adds some elegance and detail to the area and it makes a nice backdrop for my FB Live videos.
The decals are really easy to apply especially to a smooth surface.

July 2019 Stamp/Die/Mask Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway!

11 July 2019

Welcome to the July 2019 Blog Hop featuring new stamps, dies, and masks. If you have come from Virginia Lu's blog, you are right on track. You can start the blog hop over on the Altenew Card Blog.

I chose to work with the Crystal Frames Stamp and Die Set. 

How to:
  1. Pick a shape from the stamp set that you particularly like and create a background. I opted to use black.
  2. Fill in a couple of these shapes with a sentiment and/or title.
  3. Cut out a different shape using the Crystal Frame die and place them in different spots overlapping the black shapes.
  4. Add your photo. I cut mine out using one of the coordinating dies and framed it with a coloured frame.
  5. Cut out some flowers from patterned paper and add them to the top and bottom of the layout. This will add colour and detail.
