Altenew July 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

10:00:00 PM

Hello and welcome to the Altenew July 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop! Hope you came here from Lydia Evans's blog, but if not, please check out whole blog list in the bottom of this post to get more chances to win giveaways on each stops.


For my first card, I started by stamping images from Altenew Beautiful Heart Stamp Set onto cold press watercolor paper and cut it out with coordinating die set. I colored images with Gansai Tambi watercolor paints.


Next, I pulled out another watercolor paper and ink blended it with Blueprint Sketch, Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire, Tea dye and Gathered Twigs Distress inks. I then splattered white ink and Ground Espresso distress ink with clean water to the background.

For sentiment from Altenew Beautiful Heart Stamp Set, I gold heat embossed it with Altenew Rose Gold EP onto black card stock and cut it with a scissors.


I then die cut a frame from Altenew Reflection Paper Pad using Altenew Leaf Frame Cover Die. To finish, I mounted all elements as shown using various adhesives and applied some Nuvo Crystal Drops to around stamen.


For my next two cards, I die cut 3 frames from Altenew Reflection Paper Pad and watercolor paper using Altenew Leaf Frame Cover Die.

I glued two of them in opposite direction using Ranger Multi Medium Matte. After I watercolored background lightly using Gansai Tambi watercolor paint, I mounted all frame pieces on it.


If you don't know Korean at all, I'm sure you already understand at least one of them, because the largest one is from Altenew Thanks Around the World Stamp Set hehe. Others are from Altenew Oriental Orchid Korean Stamp Set and all sentiments mean... 'Thank you! You are so beautiful inside and out. I hope your day is fabulous' :)

For more texture, I applied Nuvo Crystal Drops Morning Dew to big sentiment.


I made this card as same way using same supplies with previous card.


At this time, I teamed up with Altenew Thanks Around the World Stamp Set and Altenew Kind Words Stamp Set. I added glossy effect to big sentiment like previous card as well.


Have I ever told you what my favorite color palette is? Here it is. Gold and turquoise combo always makes happy!

To begin this card, I gold heat embossed image from Altenew Needlework Motif Stamp Set using Altenew Rose Gold EP onto turquoise card stock. I die cut it with coordinating die and colored with Prismacolor colored pencils.


I white embossed a sentiment from same stamp set onto black card stock and trimmed down as shown. I stacked up turquoise, gold glitter and white card stock and mounted colored flower and sentiment.


I used Altenew Needlework Motif Stamp Set again for my final card. First, I white heat embossed the flower onto teal card stock and colored with Prismacolor colored pencils. I die cut left edge of this panel using Altenew Creative Edges : Lace Die and popped it up on purple card stock using craft foam.


I then pulled out Altenew Floral Alphabet Stamp Set and white heat embossed 'L' onto a piece of black paper and die cut with Altenew Floral Alphabet Die Set. Original 'Love you' sentiment is from Altenew Forever and Always Stamp Set and I partial stamped it as shown to combine it with beautiful 'L'. I applied some Nuvo Crystal Drops to small flower and leaves.


To finish, I added pearl dots around flower image using Ranger Liquid Pearls White Opal.

Hope you enjoyed these cards. Thank you so much for joining me today!
