Altenew April 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil/Paper Pack Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

16 April 2019


 Welcome to the April 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil and Paper Pack Release Blog Hop. If you have hopped over from Laurie Willison's blog you are right on track. You can start the hop on the Altenew Card Blog.

One of my favourite stamps from this set is the Study In Watercolor Set. It is so easy to use and I loved making this layout. I even had leftovers and made a card as well.


 How to:

  1. Stamp the floral and foliage images in different colours. 
  2. Cut them out with coordinating dies.
  3. Create layers on your layout.
  4. Add your photo, title and a couple of embellishments.

 I added some enamel dots dropping out of the foliage.

I also had some labels from a previous project created with the Dot Labels Set. I added those to create detail and break up the white space. 
You can see how I created this layout in the video below or watch it in HD on YouTube:


With the leftover pieces, I created a card using the sentiments from the stamp set. I love creating a card with the leftovers from a layout. So easy.

Altenew 5th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 1 + Giveaway

2 April 2019


YAY ALTENEW IS FIVE.
What better way to celebrate than by having an anniversary Blog Hop. Join us in the fun and win some AMAZING PRIZES. 
If you have hopped over from the Simon Says Stamp you are right on track. You can start the hop over on the Altenew Card Blog.

 I created a layout to celebrate this special occasion and used the  DEAREST FRIEND stamp set from Altenew. I combined one of the stamped images with the Altenew Tropical Fiesta Watercolor Markers to create a vibrant flower arrangement.

To create the coloured image I started with some watercolour cardstock and added water and colour. Once it was dried I stamped my image with Black Permanent Ink from Altenew. 

 I cut out around myself and my son in the photo so that I could tuck this part of the photo behind the flowers. I also cut out some leaf shapes from one of the patterned papers from the Live Your Dream collection. A couple of embellishments from the same collection add detail and for my title, I used the sentiments from the stamp set.

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Sweet Violet Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

1 April 2019




Welcome to the BAF April Sweet Violet Blog Hop and Giveaway. If you have come from Emily Midgett's blog you are right on track. You can start the hop over on the Altenew Card Blog.

This month's BAF set is so sweet and delicate. If you are interested in the Build-a-flower sets and you love flowers the BAF subscription is made for you. 


This is a monthly subscription plan for our Build-A-Flower set. When signed up, you are guaranteed a spot in our monthly BAF releases and will receive a set each month - at a specially discounted price! ($35.00 →$29.99)

I created a spread for my planner/notebook. I used watercolours so the paper of the planner did move a bit but I quite like the look. It was so simple and easy to do and now I have a pretty page which makes me happy.

 What I love about this set is that there are many layering options. You can layer many images, or keep it simple and just do a two or three.

 I picked blue and green tones and used the sentiment stamps to create a custom title.

You can also acquire the bundle which has the stamp, die and mini inks so that you can start creating to your heart's content. 


How would you use this set?
