Altenew June 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hi, Everyone!


I am so excited to be part of the Altenew June 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop today. Altenew is releasing some absolutely Amazing stamps and dies.


For this card I diecut the Beautiful Moroccan Mosaic Cover Die and matted it to some vellum and then diecut a Mega Alphabet A - Z Dies  K that I stamped and colored using the Lovely Ditsy Print Stamp Set. The sentiment is from the Perfectly Perfect Stamp Set.





































My second Project is one my son absolutely LOVES. I used the Mega Alphabet A - Z Dies  to create a personalized pillowcase. This is such a fast and fun gift. I simply ironed on some vlisofix transfer glue to the back of a piece of White fabric and the die cut the letters for his name. Then I simply ironed them on to a large piece of cotton fabric and used zigzag stitching to fasten them Before making the pillowcase. These dies are wonderful - they cut through fabric as if it was butter (-:


For the Barcelona FC tag I used the Lovely Hug Me - Stamp and die bundle  and More than Words

 

 For this card I stamped the Ditsy Print Stamp Set and then colored the cardstock to create my own Beautiful patterned paper.  The sentiment is from Perfectly Perfect Stamp Set and the alphas are: Inline Alpha die set


I'm in love with the Moroccan Mosaic Cover Die - there are so many Amazing uses with it! And endless designs!




For my last card I used watercolors to make this very Clean and simple, yet Beautiful card with the Lovely Sweetest Peas Stamp Set. If you love watercoloring this is the perfect set - these flowers hold so many Beautiful colors and no other coloring medium will create that very special look!
If you are doing the hop you probably arrived here from one of my favorite sources of inspiration - the one and only Laura Bassen and should now hop on to the amazingly talented Flora Monika Farkas.

ServiceDogMommy said...

I love all the cards you created! I am curious how you got such a smooth background after you stamped the Ditsy stamp (the flowers) and had already colored in those flowers. Did you use watercolor, and if so how did you achieve this with the blue and green backgrounds on the cards? Each are so amazing.
