Altenew July 2022 Summer Sunshine Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)

1 July 2022

 


Welcome to the Summer Sunshine Blog Hop with Altenew. If you have hopped over from Therese Calvird's blog you are right on track. You can start the hop over on the Altenew Blog

Summer is finally here and after a very tiring and heavy couple of months, I hope this summer break will give my family and I some time to recuperate. My dad's passing hit us so hard and every day is still filled with lots of sadness but we are able to enjoy being together. One of our favourite activities is just relaxing in the garden with a refreshing drink. The Mod Fruit Bowl Stamp set reminds me of those cool refreshing drinks and it's the perfect stamp to create a summery card. 


Supplies:

  • Mod Fruit Bowl Stamp Set
  • Precision pen
  • Altenew Obsidian Black Ink 
  • Maple Yellow and Fresh Lemon Crisp Inks (from the Pocketful of Sunshine set)
  • Just Green and Firefly (from the Green Meadows Set)
  • Yellow Cardstock 
  • White Smooth Cardstock


How to: 
  1. Stamp the larger lemon in the bottom left hand corner.
  2. Add smaller stamps around it. You can do the whole card base or just one corner. Another option is to stamp two opposite corners. The possibilities are endless. 
  3. Doodle lines around the edges.
  4. Add a sentiment.
  5. Cut a small strip of yellow cardstock and adhere it to the cardstock for a pop of colour.

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.
