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.

Altenew June 2019 Stand-alone Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

18 June 2019

Welcome to the June Stand Alone Die Release Blog Hop and Giveaway. If you have come from Jennifer McGuire'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 layouts. The first was made with the Virginia Rose Die and the Delicate Mandala Die.




How to:


  1. Choose different patterned papers with colours that work well together. Cut out the flower and leaf shapes.
  2. Use the Mandala Die to cut out a mandala shape. 
  3. Place the different elements on the layout. Create clusters of three placed in a triangular disposition placing the photo as centre piece. 
  4. Add your title and journalling and for detail a couple of doodled hearts.




For my second layout, I went with the Nesting Label Dies and cut out the shapes from patterned paper from the Blushing Blooms Paper Pack. I then placed them over a 8,5"x11" white piece of cardstock.


For my embellishments, I used some flowers that I cut out from a patterned paper from the same paper pack. For contrast, I added some stamped sentiments that I used as journalling.
You can see how I created the layout in the video below or watch it on YouTube.

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

12 June 2019

Welcome to one of this month's release blog hops. If you have hopped over from  Joni Andaya 's blog you are right on track. You can start the hop over on the Altenew Card Blog.

I created a card and a layout for this release. For my card, I picked the Sunflower Daisy Stamp and Mask Sets.

 How to:

  • Pick your ink colors and stamp the first flower images using the different layer stamps.
  • Place the coordinating mask over the stamped image and stamp your second flower image in a different color combination.
  • Use the two flower masks and add some stamped foliage. 
  • To add detail in the background, use the stencil leaf images from the stencil/mask set and add leaves using a blending tool. 
  • Add your sentiment.


 To add a bit of sparkle, I popped on a couple of sequins.

 My next project is a layout which I created with the Pen Sketch Mandala Stamp Set.

I started by stamping the mandala shape using blue and green tones and then added some cut out flowers.


You can see how the layout came together in the video below.
