This first card showcases the new Blooming Branches.  This multi-step stamp set is amazing!  So easy to line up with awesome pops of color along the branch.  It's perfect for a simple background or paired with the die cut, make a great grounding image.  I stamped the sentiment from Sentiment Suite: Birthday Stamps on a banner die and added that to my scored card base.

I used Blooming Branches on this next card but added in a little bird from the new Robin and Wren set...

I kept the branch super simple in light gray colors with a pale green leaf.  I stamped the wren and popped it up on foam tape.  Last, I added in the birthday greeting and then matted the card front on a coral card base.

Altenew

This new die is called the Star Pop Up Flower.  It is gorgeous and so easy to use!!  I grabbed both flower dies and added them around the front of the card.  I made a mask for the flowers and then added in some ink blending to the leaves and the center.  

Altenew

I attached the card front to an aqua card base and I just love how that color shines through.

Altenew

The next new die is called Dainty Blooms Cover Die....

Altenew

I die cut the cover die but left all the negative pieces in tact.  I attached the whole cover die to a white card base so all the pieces would stay together.  Next, I stamped and cut out 5 sentiments from the set called Label Love and added them to the card front with foam tape for a little dimension.

The Greetery June Reveal Day 2...



Welcome to day 2 of The Greetery June Reveal.  Are you have so much fun so far?  Betsy's designs have my heart for sure!  Today's sets are no exception.  All I have to say is.....mason jar.  LOVE!!!  Check it out....

The Greetery June Release

This mason jar comes from a set called Just Mason Around.  You guys.  I love love love this jar.  It is genius!  It was so easy to stamp all 3 layers and it makes the most amazing jar.  I paired the jar with another new set called Opsie Daisy.  These blooms are just gorgeous and so much fun.  I did a little washi masking stripe on the card front and then layered the jar and daisy's.  One fun little detail I had to add to the jar is the little daisy petals to make it look like you can see the daisy behind the jar.  I crossed my fingers when I stamped the petals and it worked out!  Then I matched up the daisy behind  the jar for the perfect look.  I layered the rest of the daisies around the front of the jar and then added the tie die cut on the jar.

The Greetery June Release

This next stamp set is called Lemon Blossoms.  And oh boy!  LOVE this one too!

The Greetery June Release

To create this card, I grabbed a piece of aqua card stock and then masked off the middle and added a darker aqua to the top and bottom.  Then I added a few score lines in the ink blended section.  I stamped and die cut the lemons and the blossoms and then popped them up on the card front.  I heat embossed that gorgeous sentiment and added a few dew drops for an extra detail!

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.  

The Greetery June Release


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!


The Greetery June Release


This next set is called Summer Sketches....

The Greetery June Release

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.  

The Greetery June Release

There are bound to be some gorgeous samples using these newest stamps just by hopping over to the blog listed below.  These girls are so talented and I can't wait to see what they create!

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.
