Altenew March 2022 Folktales & StoriesCollection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)

4 March 2022

 


Welcome to the Folktales & Stories Blog Hop and Giveaway. If you have hopped over from Nichol Spohr's blog you are right on track. You can start the hop over on the Altenew Blog

In these anxious times I find it hard to create but I push myself to do it as it brings me peace and takes my mind of things. My favourite technique to keep my anxious mind busy is watercolouring. This is the layout I created with the some of the new products. I used the Rosy Blooms Stamp and Die Set. 


To create my background I used the Altenew Watercolour Pencils. I chose red, orange, green and yellow shades and made a stripy watercolour background. 


I stamped the images from the Rosy Blooms Stamp Set onto some watercolour cardstock. I cut them out before colouring them with the Watercolour Pencils. I used the same colours as for the background. 

I picked a black and white photo so that it would stand out between all the colourful elements. My title was created with a sentiment stamp. Some enamel dots in similar colours add the final details.

Altenew Dreamy Bouquet Fabric Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)

17 February 2022

 


Hello there everyone and welcome to the Dreamy Bouquet Blog Hop featuring Altenew's newest product: Fabric Collection. If you have hopped over from Laurie Willison's blog you are right on track. You can start the hope over on the Altenew Card Blog.

I created a tote bag with the fabric pieces and used 4 of the 5 designs so that it can be turned inside out. 



I created two panels each with two designs. Before sewing everything together I added a thin layer of fiberfill. You can get it in different thicknesses and I went with the thinnest. I stitched around the edges and added bright pink bias as well some stripped ribbon. 




The stitching of the bias isn't perfect and it has been a while since I used it. I thick I could have gone with a wider width as my layers were pretty thick. Overall I'm really happy the way it turned out. I created it without a pattern and just went with the sizes of the panels. 





Don't you think the colours are amazing?! I wish they would make them in regular fabric size because I could see myself making a dress with several of these designs.

Altenew All Things Handmade Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)

4 February 2022

 


Welcome to the All Things Handmade Blog Hop and Giveaway. If you have hopped over from Therese Calvird's blog you are right on track. You can start the hop over on the Altenew Card Blog.

For today's hop I created two projects with the same products. I used the new Alcohol Ink Backgrounds 6x6 Paper Pack and combined the paper with the Mod Vases Die Set. 

For my layout, I created a "shelf" for my vases. 
How to:
  1. Cut out a variety of vase shapes with the dies from the Mod Vases Die Set.
  2. Add some Turquoise Watercolor Brush Marker onto some scrap plastic and spray with water. 
  3. Tap the plastic onto some white cardstock and create a blue inky background.
  4. Create a shelf with two slim washi tapes (Cool Summer Night Slim Washi Tape Set)
  5. Arrange your vases on the shelf.
  6. Cut out some leaves using the Just Leaves Die Set. Pop them in some of the vases.
  7. Place your photo and add a doodled edge.
  8. Stamp your title with the You Are Everything Stamp Set. 



I didn't add any other embellishments as the colourful vases are more than enough. I did add some doodled scribbles. 



For my card, I used up the leftover vases from the layout.  I layered a piece of cardstock from the Alcohol Ink Backgrounds Paper Pack and layered it on top of some Altenew Navy cardstock. I also cut out a vase from the navy cardstock.

To make the vases stand out, I drew a border around the edges with a white and black pen.

Altenew Fabulous Flora Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)

25 January 2022

 


Welcome to the Fabulous Flora Blog Hop and Giveaway. If you have hopped over from Linda Parker's blog you are right on track. If you have just arrived here, you can start the hop over on the Altenew Blog. You will be amazed by all the amazing talent so make a cuppa and enjoy all the eye candy. 

For today's hop I created a card using the Cupped Blossom 3D Embossing Folder. I pulled out my blending tool and the Pinks from the  Spring Bouquet Ink Set as well as the Tropical Forest Set and started blending. 

To create a crisper and more detailed look I opted to use the finer blending brushes which are great to colour smaller images and also help add colour to very detailed designs. 

The larger scale of the embossing folders might seem scary if you like creating smaller cards but don't be afraid to use part of the image. Section of the part you like and put your smaller scale cardstock in place. You will be able to create a variety of different cards with one folder by embossing different parts.
