Altenew July Stamp/Die Blog Hop+Giveaway

Hello friends!
Warning: Super-heavy photo post 
Yay, it's July Release Blog Hop from Altenew!
I am super excited to share 4 card projects with you.
If you arrive from the blog of Nina Marie Trapani, you are in the right place!
If not, come on in and join the fun and inspiration. 

All the details about this blog hop are listed in Altenew's Card Blog and Scrapbook Blog.

First up, I want to say HELLO to you with this Floral Alphabet Stamp/Die Bundle.

Altenew-FloralAlphabetStampDie-Virginia#1

This is not just another average alphabet set... it has lovely floral images built in!

Altenew-FloralAlphabetStampDie-Virginia#2

I colored the images with Altenew Artist Markers and die cut them out.

Imagine you can use this set to personalize the names and special sentiment?
And oh... you must get the matching die as you can never fussy cut them so perfectly.

 Next up is the Around the World Stamp Set. 

Altenew-ThankYouAroundthe WorldStamp-Virginia#2

I stamped assorted thank you-sentiment in various languages. How cool is that?
Chinese is my mother tongue, of course, I am the one that contributed " ่ฌ่ฌ"!
Altenew-ThankYouAroundthe WorldStamp-Virginia#3

I then highlighted the message with a simple "thanks" in Rose Gold Embossing Powder
on vellum. The hand-stitching adds a nice handmade touch and helps to secure the vellum (without any glue).

My 3rd project was created with "Circle Embroidery Hoop Die" and "Embroidery Blooms" Stamp.
Altenew-CircleEmbroideryHoopDie-EmbroideredStamp-Virginia#1


First, about the hoop, I used Cherry Wood Paper for the hoop and Gold Foil Cardstock
for the metal clasp. You may not notice, but I used vellum for the clear-embossed floral images.

The Embroidered Blooms stamp set from this release is perfect in this.

The added sequins were glued on the vellum and provided a lovely interest.

Lastly, it is my favorite project from this release.....
Altenew-NeedleworkMotif-thankyoudie-Virginia#1

This card combines the new "Simply Thank You" Die and "Needlework Motif".

Altenew-NeedleworkMotif-thankyoudie-Virginia#2

This card takes a bit of thinking ahead, but it is so simple once you have the steps planned out.
I added a piece of Silver Washi Tape with the thank you die and I love the details that this gives.

Technique Tuesday #4

Hello friends!
I am back with another Technique Tuesday
This Tuesday, I am feature a technique or two with Technique Tuesday products.

This time, the theme (not so much on technique) is "mix it up"
Often times, the products that we have come in a set and we tend to just use it as is.
I hope today's post reminds you to look at your supplies with fresh eyes!
Technique Tuesday - DIY Steel Die - Berry Basket
Technique Tuesday - DIY Steel Die - Berry Basket

from: Scrapbook.com
(all products and source are linked below) 

My card idea started with the Berry Basket.
I thought not only it make a nice berry basket, it can also be a planter!
So, I went ahead and looked at my stash and this was what I came up with.

Remember

I love how easy it is to piece the basket together. So I stamped and colored the images. 
Remember-002

I happened to have the scarps from this Watercolor Stripes Cover Plate. 
The Iris image was colored with Altenew Artist Markers. 
Remember-001

As you can see, I also used the Iris stamp to create a very faint background.
I stamped the sentiment (from Carnation Friends) and found the color green fitting in this.
Remember you have a friend in me

To make the entire design cohesive, I added splatter with Wink of Stella (green).

remember-003

I hope that you find today's post interesting and inspiring.
Technique Tuesday has a fabulous new release, you can check it out here.
