Altenew | Refresh Your Watercolor Brush Markers Blog Hop + Giveaway

Welcome to the Altenew Refresh Your Watercolor Brush Markers Blog Hop.  The new Brush Marker Refills are here and they are awesome for so many techniques but even to just keep those brush markers juicy.  The refills are so easy to use to get those markers back to full.

Altenew

I created a super simple card using the new refills for the Tropical Fiesta Brush Markers.  I stamped and heat embossed an adorable image from the Ruffled Flowers set.  I added a little color from the brushes along with a little water to fill the spaces of the flowers and leaves. 

Altenew

I die cut the flowers with the coordinating die and then also cut out a piece of fun foam.  I lined the back of the flower image with the fun foam and added it to the card front for a perfect dimensional flower.  I stamped a sentiment from the set in Obsidian Black Ink.  To finish off the card, I added in a few clear drops.  Super clean and simple!

Stamptember {Concord and 9th}...



Hello crafty friends!  The next stamp available for Stamptember is this amazing Turnabout from Concord and 9th.  It is absolutely adorable and so easy to stamp!

Stamptember - Concord and 9th

I used bright colors for the stamped images.  These turnabouts are so fun to use.  You put them in your Misti and then turn them each time with a new color.  This one creates such a fun quilted look. 

Stamptember - Concord and 9th 

I added in a stitched rectangle die with the heart and sentiment both from the set.  I love that there are things that work so well together all in one set!

A Clean and Simple Christmas {Spellbinders}...



Spellbinders

Hi Crafty Friends! I am stopping in with some Christmas cards because yes...it’s about that time!  I am still wondering where the summer went and just can’t believe the holidays are around the corner.  

Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System is the absolute perfect place to start on your holiday cards.  There are so many amazing Glimmer Plates to make these cards quick and simple and easy to mass produce!  I have 3 cards to share today using several plates that will give you a gorgeous foiled look but keep the card making process nice and quick!

CARDS

Spellbinders


To create this card, I used a Hero Arts set Color Layering Holly for a bright and colorful backgorund.  I added in 2 strips of Gold Washi down the middle of the card and then finished each of the holly berries off with FSJ’s Journey Glaze.  I love the shine that adds to the background.


Spellbinders


I grabbed some Gold Foil and the Holiday Cheer Glimmer Plate to complete the main focal point on some red cardstock.  I added the panel to the card front with foam tape to give it some dimension.

This next project was super quick to make.  I used the Peace on Earth Glimmer Plate to create this cleand and simple look. 

Spellbinders


Gold Foil is a great way to get the perfect shine for holiday cards.  I hot foiled the plate on white cardstock and then used washi tape to mask off lines on the front.  Using a blender brush, I ink blended in the lightest layer of gray ink for a subtle stripe.  
Spellbinders
I attached the striped panel to a white card base to finish off the card.

This last card uses the Alphabet Ornament Glimmer Plate.  This plate is so beautiful with its calligraphy style font creating a fun design and one that looks amazing foiled! 
Spellbinders
To create this card, I used the Matte Gold Foil with Glimmer Plate on white cardstock.  I took a circle die and die cut the ornament. I needed some more stripes so I added washi to the front of teh circle and blended in red stripes.  
Spellbinders

Last, I tied a green bow and attached 2 gold bells to the bow.  I decided not to go for a sentiment on this card, which is unusual for me but i love how the Ornament shines by itself.  


Spellbinders supplies: 
Other supplies: Green Ribbon, Gold Bells
