Altenew June 2018 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Today is a super fun day over at Altenew!  Today is the June Release day!  I have 3 projects to share and there are prizes!  Scroll down for the giveaway info and for the entire blog hop list.  If you are following along, you just got here from May's blog.  Isn't she amazing?

CARDS

Altenew's new stamps and dies are just as stunning as they are each month but I am loving the new products I have to share with you today!  

This first card showcases the new set called Ditsy Print paired with my favorite hello die in the history of ever!  :)  This set is perfect for the clean and simple stamper.  It has beautiful outlined stamps and then the solid centers making it for a quick, beautiful image.

Altenew June 2018 Release

To create this card I stamped and heat embossed the floral image from the set all over a piece of vellum.  I flipped the vellum over and on the back, I used Copics to quickly color in the flowers and leaves.  I added the hello die in white card stock to the front of the vellum panel.  On the back, I added adhesive behind the hello die and then added that panel to an aqua card base.

I am a HUGE fan of banners.  I love having them for special days at the house, for my craft room...really any occasion needs a banner!  This month Altenew has some new products that have me geeking out...perfect for making all the banners!


And with those you have this.....

June 2018 Altenew

I grabbed a rainbow of colored card stock and used the Pocked Banner Die to cut out 8 banners.  Next, I took the new background stamp called Pinstripe and put it in my Misti.  I was able to quickly stamp all 8 banners with the stripes, all perfectly even, half way covering each piece.

Next, I used white card stock and cut out the words Happy Day.  I added each letter to the banners with foam tape for some dimension.  Using white twine and white mini clothespins to string up the banners, it's now ready to hang!  

Here is a close up of 2 of the panels....I adore those stripes!  This makes for a quick, clean and simple banner. And looks at those little pierced dots around the edge!  Love that the Banner dies add such a fun detail.

One last, easy peasy project!

Altenew June 2018 Release

To create this card I stamped the leaf images from Leaf Canopy in black ink.  I added a tiny pink dot of ink throughout the images.  I grabbed the new alphabet die called Tall Alpha....LOVE!!... and stamped the sentiment in pink ink.  I attached the white card front to a pink card base and left a tiny bit of the pink base showing on the side and top for some more color.
