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




Hello Folks! I'm so honored to help celebrate Altenew's November Stamp/Die/Stencil Release by joining in an inspirational blog hop! You may come from Nathalie DeSousa's blog but if not feel free to start at the beginning with the Altenew Card Blog.



I'm sure we'd all agree there are a lot of good floral sets coming out to the market. This one, called Breezy Bouquet, is great because not only does it have a great floral image, but it also comes with a vase and a wrap to hold the flowers, stems, a tag, and some wonderfully scripty sentiments.


The main floral image is watercolored, gold is spattered on the card base (with a mask over the flowers so they don't get any of the gold spatters), and an outline is drawn around the panel. Going along the bottom is a strip of the new Gradient Lines Washi Tape.


But I just couldn't leave it alone. Does that ever happen to you? So I took the washi tape off, adhered one of the new die cut sentiments from Handwritten Hello, and extended the outlines around the card panel.




Did you notice the cute little tag that's tied around the vase? Not only is the tag darling, but the sentiment fits perfectly inside!



The next card is made from the cutest little set! It's called Mini Moon, and it's ONLY $4.99! The coordinating die is just $2.99, but you could definitely just cut around the moon with your scissors too.

I smooshed some ink in the middle of the panel, stamped it repeatedly with the "moon" sentiment, and then popped up the moon die cut. The tiny sentiments which finish the phrase surround it nicely.



Embossing the moon details in shiny silver make it seem even more moon-like. Then the card base is stamped with my recently favorite background stamp, faceted stars.



The last set I'm featuring today is the Plentiful Pine Stamp Set and Plentiful Pine Die Set. It's just like the famous Altenew Build-a-Flower sets, except instead of building a flower, you get to build a pine tree! Just a fabulous idea for a set.



No need to always reach for the green inks with evergreens ... purple, yellow and fuchsia work well for a modern Christmas card!



After the last card came together, I had a bunch of fuchsia trees left over, so I quickly made another card featuring this beauty.



The background is from the Linear Stencil ... love how it really helps direct your attention towards the center, right where the tree is. This sentiment is one of the many useful sentiments to come with the set. Underneath the sentiment I've blended some black ink through the Feeling Dotty Stencil.



I had to try a traditionally colored set of trees too! This trio of pines is nestled close together in the snow drifts. The sun has set awhile ago, and it's starting to really dark out, hence the purple, twilight sky.




These two sentiments are also included in the set. I'm always a sucker for script + type. Lots to chose from here, and not all are holiday-specific!
