Altenew February 2020 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hi there!  So glad you are here today.  We are hopping today with Altenew and their February release.  Today we have Stencils, Standalone Dies and some pretty amazing decals to share.  Stop by the Altenew Shop by clicking HERE to see everything that is new today.  Keep scrolling to see the giveaways and the full blog hop list!


I have 2 projects today using new stencils and one of the new standalone dies.  The stencil this month are gorgeous and intricate and so easy to use!


Altenew


This first stencil is called Hand Drawn Tile.  It is a full size stencil but I used only the center square portion for today's card.  I blended in 2 colors of ink, Volcano Lake and Chamomile inside the stencil.   Blending the 2 gave the perfect layer of green in between. I cut down the center square and popped it up on another mat of white cardstock.  


Altenew


I placed the square on a teal card base and then added in some Prisma colored pencil detail to the stencil.  Last, I heat embossed a sentiment from Sentiment Strips Stamp Set and added it to the center of the card.

On Point is another new stencil in today's release.  I just love the beautiful detail in this stencil and it made for a super quick and easy background.  I blended in some Frosty Pink, Chamomile and Sunray inks around the front of the stencil.  



Altenew


I sprayed the background with Silver Glitter Dust and then added in the new Fancy For You die.  I popped it up on fun foam for added dimension.  For a little extra detail, I added in some sequins.

Here is today's card....


Spellbinders


I zoned in right on that arch die that looked like a rainbow.  There are 2 dies but using Copics, I was able to make an abstract rainbow just by adding in a little coloring.  


Spellbinders


I did some light blue blending in the background and then added in the rainbow.  I used Fun Stampers Journey's smile die to add some sparkle with the sentiment.  Super simple!

birthday wishes {The Stamp Market}...

Hello there!  I have a new card to share today using some adorable Stamp Market Dies.  I am sitting here typing in my warm craft room while there are 4" of new snow outside.  Fortunately, my kids didn't have school today so this weather was a great reason to stay inside.  

I am so ready for spring and warm weather so this card definitely has me wishing for rainbows soon!


The Stamp Market


To create this card, I used the Rainbow Stripes Die from The Stamp Market.  I love how the die comes in a fun wonky look.  It was so each to die cut the card stock, and another set of fun foam pieces, add them together and attach them to the card from.  


The Stamp Market


I stamped a birthday sentiment right underneath the rainbow.  I die cut the heart in red cardstock and then added a little glossy accents for some shine.  Super simple!


The Stamp Market

So glad you stopped in today!  I hope you are staying warm and crafting the day away!
