Altenew July 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hi, everyone!

I am so excited to be part of Altenew's July release bloghop! They are releasing some wonderful new stamps and dies that I know you will love!!!





The first set I took out to play with I fell in love with immediately - the Beautiful Heart Stamp Set - it is wonderful in so many different ways. Here I used the no line coloring technique and watercolors.







Here I used the same stamps but used copics to color instead and got a totally different look. The Leaf Frame Cover Die will be my new go to bg die (couldn't stop using it as you can see below (-: ) - it is soooo beautiful and so useful!! Such a fast and easy way to create that little extra on a card!
Beautiful Heart Stamp Set - The sentiment is from Life Is Awesome Stamp Set



A different feel and different look on this card! Here I played with the very summery Gradient Sunset Stamp SetGradient Sunset Dies. It's not only perfect for cards but would be awesome for the Scrapbook LO's from summers or vacations to hot or tropical places. I just LOVE the chunky sentiments too!!!





The Leaf Frame Cover Die creates a BEAUTIFUL frame for stamped or painted scenes like this one. Here I layered two Leaf Frame Cover Die on top of eachother and I think the result is just lovely - it creates a beautiful texture and dimension to the scene made from some of the beautiful stamps from Gradient Sunset Stamp Set . I used watercolor paper with rough grain for my inked bg to get even more texture!



For fast and beautiful cards use the lovely Needlework Motif Stamp Set. Here I stamped and colored the flowers and then stamped again (using the misty so I got it exactly right) andclear embossed it. It doesn't really show here but that embossed edge makes it look so much more worked at.





Last but not least I played with the absolutely WONDERFUL Floral Alphabet Stamp Set. These are WONDERFUL for so many different types of projects. I made a little gift set of stationary. I ran a bunch of die cut letters to make some sealers for my letters (they are all gone already - I used them to seal up some b-day cards I just sent out - and it really added that little extra to the back of the envelope- will make a hundred next time so they'll last a bit longer (-:
The letters are sweet die cut and colored like here but also very elegant when embossed in gold , silver or white. Would make beautiful wedding cards or invitations! I am in LOVE!!!!
