Peaceful Reverie Stamp/Stencil

Hello friends!
I am popping in to share another colorful card with the new amazing stamp set from Altenew. 
"Peaceful Reverie" has tiny dotty details and is super easy to line up.
http://shrsl.com/1nivp
I love using stencils for images like these.
First, I stamped all the images by starting with the red one  and worked around the red flower.

xoxo


Once I finished stamping, I decided to add Embossing Paste (with 
the mask covering the flowers). 
xoxo-001

It was a bit tricky to do since I wanted to avoid covering the flowers.

I thought I was doing "good", so I decided to add splatter.
It turned out to be a bit of a mess. But, it's ART, right!?
xoxo-002

Finally, I stamped the "Walk in the Woods" in grey ink and frame the entire image with black card stock (goes with the black splatter!).

I am also drawing a winner for my Instagram Giveaway. 
It is to celebrate reaching over 2000 Instagram followers

Leaf Clusters Stamp & Die Bundle

Hello friends!

Have you checked out Altenew's release blog hop in my previous post
If not, it is definitely not too late to comment to win! 
Altenew-LeaftClustersStampDie-PowerPattern-Virginia#2
๐Ÿ‘‰ there is a FREEBIE alert at the end of this post

Hope you don't mind....
I am sharing another take with Leaf Cluster Stamp & Die Bundle.
My first take with this stamp set has an Italian vibe (see above).
Today's card is definitely different from the last.
http://shrsl.com/1nie2
Not sure why....but solid stamps always GET me! I am weak when it comes to solid stamps...
stay awesome

Perhaps it's because I am truly a stamper.
Nothing is more appealing to me when you can stamp the images in any colors that makes you pitter patter. Do you feel the same way?

stay awesome-002

I decided to stamp in unconventional colors for the leaves.

stay awesome-001
What? No green leaves?
Well, in our stamping world, we are "allowed" to stamp whatever colors to stretch our horizon, right?
I stamped with the three stronger colors of ink--Fusia, Crimson and Snapdragon.
The result is actually not bad! 

stay awesome-003

I added a piece Golden Trim Washi Tape before I ran the leaf through the die cut machine.
Carefully, I added black splatter from Jet Black Ink Spray.
Voila!

Be sure to leave all my Altenew post with a comment, too!
Each month, I  randomly draw TWO lucky winners for $15 Altenwe Gift Certificate.

Hello friends!
Warning: Super-heavy photo post
s
Yay, it's June Release Blog Hop from Altenew!

I am super excited to share 4 projects with you.
If you arrive from the blog of Nathalie DeSousa you are in the right place!

All the details about this blog hop, please visit Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog
I am sharing the projects based on the feature products and have listed them in no particular order.

1. feature products: Peaceful Reverie Stamp & StencilSentiment Strips
Altenew-PeacefulReverieStamp-Stencil-SentimentStrips-Virginia

This one layer card is definitely one-of a-kind! With the coordinating stencil, I was able to mask all the images. I even used the Ombre Stripes Stencil for that extra lines!

Altenew-PeacefulReverieStamp-Stencil-SentimentStrips-Virginia#3
 
I love the the floral images in this set as the 2nd layering stamp has these amazing dotty details. You will be amazed with the stamp designs. Even better, it is not fussy to line up 3 various shapes and sizes of floral images at all.
Altenew-PeacefulReverieStamp-Stencil-SentimentStrips-Virginia#2

2. feature product: Pressed Leaf Die, Sentiment Strips
Altenew-PressedLeafDie-SentimentStrips-Virginia#1

This die allows you to die cut partially. Using colored card stock is definitely a good idea!
I chose black and white card stock as they are quite striking together.

Altenew-PressedLeafDie-SentimentStrips-Virginia#2

I added the Golden Edge Washi Tape and inked up the leave petals with Enchanted Gold Pigment Ink.
Altenew-PressedLeafDie-SentimentStrips-Virginia#3
I also added Golden String Washi Tape for the accent. I love the sentiment from Sentiment Strips
 and thought it goes nicely with this encouragement card.

3. feature product: Mid Century frame Die,  Forever In Love Stamp Set
Alteenw-MidCenturyFrameDie-FoweverInLove-Virginia#1

This is likely one of the coolest die....the intricacy is astounding! 
The white-embossed floral image on vellum is from Forever In Love Stamp Set.
Alteenw-MidCenturyFrameDie-FoweverInLove-Virginia#2

The die and stamp fit nicely within the circle!
I love the Summer Garden Paper Pack so much that I decided to use this die to show it off.
Alteenw-MidCenturyFrameDie-FoweverInLove-Virginia#3
With the pattern paper, this card really took little time to create. The die shows off so fabulously!

4. Feature product: Leaf Clusters Stamp & Die Bundle, Pattern Power Stamp Set
Altenew-LeaftClustersStampDie-PowerPattern-Virginia#2
This leafy design reminds me a Limoncello package I saw in Italy! Do you get that vibe?

First of all, I had the MOST fun stamping these leaves! I used various Altenew inks and spritzed with water. Love that about Altenew inks!
Altenew-LeaftClustersStampDie-PowerPattern-Virginia#4

Once I stamped and die cut the Leaf Clusters Stamp & Die Bundle,
I arranged the leaves around the circle dot border. The Pattern Power Stamp Set comes with
assorted patterns that you can stamp any types /design as you wish.

Altenew-LeaftClustersStampDie-PowerPattern-Virginia#1

This card really is very Italian to me.... I love how this turned out.
Altenew-LeaftClustersStampDie-PowerPattern-Virginia#3

Hope you like all 4 cards that I created with this release.

3rd Take with Small Die of the Month (Spellbinders)

Hello friends!
Virginia (SDM)-001 - Copy
If you are looking for this month's Show and Share, please click on the very top right side bar.

I used the circle dies from Spellbinders Small Dies of the month.
You can also see it in this month's Show and Share post. 
your creativity amazes me

I would like to point out that this month's Spellbinders' Small Die of the Month is absolutely a goodie! If you are a hard core metal dies fan, this set is definitely worth considering.
http://shrsl.com/1nb4m
I love the geometric shapes in this set and the possibilities of playing with them. Also, the intricacy of this dies set is awesome. They do sell out and that is why I am posting my projects today rather than later.

hello-002

 Much like how I created with my two previous cards, I came up with the three hexagons.
Hello-001

Creating your own colorful paper (with any mediums) is such a GREAT idea. I can not stress enough.
hello-003

I simply chose to die cut in certain spot and layered them according to the gradient of colors and shades. Visually, they are very eye-catching. In reality, they are so easy to create! 
small dies

I hope that you enjoy today's final post about this stamp set.
