Altenew October Release Blog Hop!


Hello there, welcome to the Altenew Blog Hop! You're suppose to be coming from Agnieszka Malyszek's blog.  If not, you can click the Altenew Blog to start at the beginning of the hop, there's a lot of inspirations and prizes we don't want you to miss anything :).

Altenew is a relatively new stamp company that opened it's doors in April 2014. Today they are celebrating the release of their third collection of stamps. All the stamps that you will see here are available for purchase at the Altenew store and the Simon Says Stamp store.


To begin my card I first stamped the all sentiment stamp called Many Thanks, I did not remove the any stamp sentiment on the acrylic sheet it came with except one the biggest cursive thank you. I stamped the whole entire sheet with blank ink and stamped it on the card base. Then fill in the larger thank you, stamped it with versamark and gold embossed it. I then die-cut a kraft card panel using the spellbinders circle dies, I also created a circle border using the circle die and distress it lightly with Peacock Feather.

Next I stamped the flowers from Whimsical Flowers stamp set heat embossed the stamp outline with white embossing powder, fussy cut the flowers and leaves and adhered. To finish it off I splattered it with white and Classic tan Mister Huey's mist.




For my next card I stamped all the flowers and leaves from Peony Scrolls on a watercolor paper using white embossing powder, then watercolored. I fussy cut each image and adhered on the card base on kraft. Next, I adhered the die-cut panel on top using spellbinder circles and Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Border 2 dies "used the large stitched scalloped" also added some Sparkling Clear sequins. To finish off the card I stamped the sentiment from Painted Butterflies stamp set.




I hope you enjoyed!

  53. Aside from just being struck by how beautiful the cards were, the background of "grateful, thanks" words really caught my eye and I wondered immediately where I could find/get that for myself and it NEVER would have occurred to me to use all of the stamps that come together on a sheet at once like that - BRILLIANT idea! And then to make one in particular stand out with embossing ~ well, I cannot tell you how this technique knocks my socks off!
