The Greetery June Reveal Day 1...



Welcome to the June Reveal of the latest Greetery release.  We have 4 days of reveals for you to see and then release day will be Friday, June 21st at 10am EST.  There is so much to see this week so hang on tight!

I have 2 cards today using the new sets called Simple Things and Summer Sketches.  

This first card is one of my favorites because I just adore this new set.  Simple Things is a gorgeous set with beautiful sentiments and of course, this amazing eucalyptus.  It is so very easy to stamp and then produces a gorgeous end result.

I kept this so very clean and simple by stamping one eucalyptus stem and then adding in the sentiment.  I just love that handwritten font!

This next set is called Summer Sketches....

I masked off the bottom of the card and added in some ink along the top.  I stamped the floral stem in brown ink and then added in the color.  I finished off this simple card by adding in a sentiment from The Greetery's Thinking of You set from their last release.

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


Welcome to the June 2019 Altenew Blog Hop!  This months release is full of some amazing new products.  If you keep scrolling, you will see 2 projects featuring 2 new stamp sets, some giveaways and a full list of places to stop on the hop!

_____________________________________

CARDS

This first card showcases the new stamp set called Sunflower Daisy.  This new bloom is absolutely gorgeous and so easy to stamp.  

Altenew June Release


To create this card, I stamped and die cut the sunflower daisy and a set of leaves.  Next, I stamped another set of leaves from the same set on the card base.  I scored the card base and then added the bloom on foam tape.  Last, I stamped the sentiment under the main image.  Super clean and simple!


Altenew June Release

The next set I used is called Pen Sketch Mandela.  This new is set is so beautiful and has a large mandela image included, but for some reason I zoned in on the little circle image and thought it would make a good mosaic look for this card.

Altenew June Release





I grabbed 4 different colors of cardstock and die cut squares using the Halftones Squares Die set.  I added those small squares to one large square die cut with foam tape.  Then I took the large square focal point and added in to a white card base.  I stamped the sentiment, from the new set called Sentiment Strips, underneath for a clean and graphic look.

MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge....

Its sketch time!  MFT has a new weekly sketch to play along with and I thought it would be perfect with the new Cute Cloud Outline Dies.....a free with $60 purchase die this month!

MFT May Release

I added some stenciled clouds in the background  and then popped up the threes clouds on the card front.  I die cut them in silver glitter card stock and again in white.  I layered the yellow wine behind the cloud and then tied tiny boys on top of each.  I added the sentiment along the bottom and a heart to finish off the card. 

MFT May Release

Here is this weeks sketch....

MFT and Friends...

Release day is here!  Are you ready to shop?  Head on over to the MFT Blog to see everything available this month.  But first, I have one last card to share....

MFT and Friends

I had to pull out the Tropical Flowers again AND this fantastic hello from the new Well, hello Stamp set.  Definitely my favorites from this release.  First, I stamped the hello repeatedly in black ink and then added in the blooms randomly around the back.  What I love about this card is there is so much detail, yet it is ONE layer!  I love the bright colors and the quick and easy design.  

MFT and Friends

I am so glad you stopped in today.  Head on over to the MFT Blog and check out all the details about today's release.  Thanks so much for coming by!

My Monthly Hero Kit

I used add-ons for todays card.  This one is the Leaves and Vines Fancy die, die cut from watercolor paper and then I added Hero Arts Pine and Moss Watercolors around the leaves.  I added the panel to a yellow card base, only glueing a few parts down so the leaves would lift up giving a more dimensional look.  I added in some clear drops just for an additional detail and then heat embossed the sentiment on the bottom of the card.  I am currently typing this post from Key West, Florida and these leaves are all around here.  Such a fun summery look!

My Monthly Hero Kit

Another card with a summer feel using the new set called Color Laying Palm Tree....

My Monthly Hero Kit

I masked off the card base with 1" painters tape and then blended in the Distress Inks to create a sunset sky.  I stamped the tree and sentiment in black ink to finish off this very simple card.
