Altenew November 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello friends! This is my 2nd post for the day.
For Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, please click here.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It is a super fun day as there is a blog hop going on.....
Yes, Altenew has done it again!
Along with some awesome scrapbook stamp and dies, There are also a few floral sets (of course!!).
Warning: photo-heavy post
Today's blog hop starts from Altenew Scrapbook Blog.
If you are coming from Aga (Agnieszka Malyszek) blog, then you are in the right place.

Let's get started, shall we?
ss
Altenew_GoldenFeather_Virginia#1

The feather image is detailed and intricate. I only need to do a bit of multi-color stamping and Partial Embossing with Platinum (Altenew, Simon Says Stamp ).

Altenew_GoldenFeather_Virginia#2

Because this release is more geared to Scrapbooking, I thought I need to try it again as a card-maker.
All the kiddies featured are NOT my children. However, they are my lovely relatives

 Altenew_SnapshotDie_Virginia#1
I am using
Snapshots Stamp Set and Snapshot Die Set 
ss

 The  makes it super easy to use the camera stamp.
To add some sparkle, I applied some good old Silver Stickles. 
 I stamped all my images with MISTI as it really helps me to do selective/multi-color stamping.

Altenew_SnapshotDie_Virginia#2

My next layout uses

Altenew_SchoolDays_JournalCards_NoteBookDie_Virginia#1

s
Altenew_SchoolDays_JournalCards_NoteBookDie_Virginia#3

I also utilized Grid Stencil (shop Simon Says Stamp here) and Halftone Stamp  (shop Simon Says Stamp here)o create a subtle background.  I recommend these useful stamp and stencil as they are perfect to add that extra something in your cards/layouts.

This is likely my easiest layout. The sentiment and photo (my nephew's son) say it all...what more can I ask for? Altenew's Our Family Scrapbook Collection really is handy to help me pull all this together. If you know of someone who love scrapbooking but really doesn't have the time, Our Family Scrapbook Collection is really the perfect Christmas gift!

Altenew_SchoolDays_JournalCards_NoteBookDie_Virginia#3
Creative Edges: Notebook Die is such a great addition to the layout.

Last but certainly not the least, it is Story of Us Stamp Set 
s

I started to stamp a colorful background with the layered flowers.
Altenew_StoryOfUs_Virginia#1

I then decided to use Halftone Hearts Die to create a shaker card.
Altenew_StoryOfUs_Virginia#2
My sequin mix: Sweet 16 and Sunshine . I stamped the card in all my favorite ink collection from Altenew: Rock CollectionSea Shore Collection and Red Sunset Collection.

The "you+me" sentiment was embossed in white on dark grey cardstock.
Altenew_StoryOfUs_Virginia#3
Phew... hope you are still here! What a long post, eh?

Good grief, this is an amazing release but the best part is seeing your projects. Those scrapbook layouts are wonderful (as are those precious kids). The way you stamped that camera is beautiful. My favorite is your floral card. The the mix of vibrant color with grey tones and making it a shaker just adds to it's awesomeness.

Donna Oates said...

I love your photo heavy post! The cute pics of the kids are so precious. I started out scrapping and now do mostly cards but I'm getting inspired to start back with it. Love your work and artistry here! So well done and fun, too!
