Altenew Love & Friendship Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello Friends! Boy do we have some sweet treats today from the new Altenew Love and Friendship Collection

 You may have come from the one and only Laura Bassen, but if not, feel free to start at the beginning with the Altenew Card Blog


With all the amazing layered floral stamp sets Altenew is famous for, I was elated to see a LAYERED ICE CREAM set!! Birthday cards are my most often made card, and this sweet dish of ice cream is perfect for those celebrations.

That it can be used for masculine cards makes this even more of a must-have set. You get four different scoops of ice cream (I chose to make mine neapolitan!) and a cut little dish/spoon that also has a set of layered stamps for the silver details and shadows. 

What a well thought-out and useful set!

Another great set for birthdays is the Modern Greetings Stamp Set ... is that not the best gigantic birthday sentiment? But wait, there's more ...


A debossing folder that matches! In this case I used the opposite side, where the text is raised, instead of the other side where the text is sunk in. It's up to you and the look you're going for. With all the letters and curves, the raised text is a real inviting addition to the set, and the large size really fills the card easily.


The secondary sentiment is one of a number of different options from the same Modern Greetings Stamp Set. And on this card I added a layered chocolate candy from the Sweet Love Stamp Set.
 
Perfect for someone who's not into florals and super feminine designs. 
 

My final card features two more new items:

How awesome is the detail on the slim deco cover die?! Do you just want to use it to frame every darn thing on your slimline cards? If you like the look of slimlines, but think it's just too much space to easily fill up, a frame like this is a great way to break it down and make the space more manageable.


The lowercase alpha dies are in a versatile, fun font, and are narrow enought to fit a lot of letters on a card front. Love this Sweet Thang : )

Did you also notice the rose on the ground? That's part of the layered ice cream set too! You just get everything in that darn set!

 

As you can see, I had the best time playing around with the Sweet Love Stamp Set! Lots of different looks from using the same formula of neopolatin layers. Such a versatile set for birthdays and any sort of celebration, or even just a "sweet" friend.
