Altenew November 2018 Stamp/Die/Ink/Sticker Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello friends!
Warning:  Super- EXTREME heavy photo post 
s
Welcome to the November Release Blog Hop from Altenew!
I am super excited to share 5 projects (yes, I know!!!!) with you.
Go grab a cup of coffee or tea and scroll through the projects that I created.  😀
If you arrive from the blog of Reiko Tsuchida , you are in the right place! Aren't her layout gorgeous?

All the details about this blog hop, please visit Altenew's Card Blog and Scrapbook Blog.

First up, it is my favorite stamp of this release

Project 1:  "Handpicked Bouquet" featuring the NEW ink "Enchanted Garden":
and Gentleman's Grey

This floral stamp set/die bundle is amazing! Not only the entire floral stem/branch will cover the entire card front, the die cuts through every bit of the stamp.
Altenew-NovemberInk-HandpickedBouquetStampDie-Virginia#1

I didn't do anything too fancy except following the guide from the insert.
I did, however, use the new purple ink Enchanted Garden.
Altenew-NovemberInk-HandpickedBouquetStampDie-Virginia#3

The purple inks are gorgeous in blue-ish tone and they are different from the older ink "Shades of Purple".  If you love all shade of purple, this is a MUST.

The Tiny Bubbles Stencil has just the right amount of details for this design.
The Gentleman's Grey Ink is a true grey!

 Project 2: World Map

How amazing is this World Map Stamp!?
 It comes in two images and each in one piece.
I chose the tiny squares and inked up in assorted colors.
Altenew-WorldMap-Virginia#2

I also inked up the "ocean" with "Ocean Wave" (of course)
Altenew-WorldMap-Virginia#1

Just when I thought the stamped images lacks something something.... 
The Nebula Watercolor came to the rescue!

Altenew-WorldMap-Virginia#3
 The sentiment from "World Map" set has such a modern vibe! Love that!

Project 3: Sketched Rose featuring the NEW INK "Delectable Delights" Collection

This card really showcase all the brown tones from "Delectable Delights"
Altenew-DelectableDelightInk-FireFlyInk-InkedRose-Virginia#1

I don't think there are any stamp quite like "Sketched Rose"....
It is L-A-R-G-E and has so many fine etched lined details!

Altenew-DelectableDelightInk-FireFlyInk-InkedRose-Virginia#3

With MISTI, I was able to do repeated stamping and made sure the center of the rose was deep and rich in "Delectable Delights".
I added the accent with the much sought-after "Golden Edge Washi Tape".

 The leaves were loosely colored in Limeade from Watercolor Brush Markers.
 
Project 4: Leaf Medallion die
  My next card looks very dramatic....

Altenew-Leaf Medallion Die-Virginia#1

First, I created a multi-color paper with Watercolor Brush Markers.
Then I made the die cut this gorgeous Leaf Medallion Die.

Altenew-Leaf Medallion Die-Virginia#2

The "Galaxy Washi Tape" 
happened to be the perfect backdrop for this gorgeous Leaf Medallion Die.

Alas.... my last card for the hop (hope you are still with me!!!)
Project 5: Engraved Flower with Kind Confetti

Need I say more? That Kind Confetti goes with EVERYTHING!
Altenew-EngravedFlowersStampDie-KindConfetti-Virginia#1  

I grounded the image with Leaf Washi Tape.

Altenew-EngravedFlowersStampDie-KindConfetti-Virginia#2
 
So, what about the Engraved Flower
It was white-embossed onto my DIY paper with Watercolor Brush Markers.

Altenew-EngravedFlowersStampDie-KindConfetti-Virginia#3
The matching die of Engraved Flower made it super easy! Done!

Oh it's way too hard to pick a favorite project you posted. I love them all! As far as the release, I love the Leaf Medallion and the Inked Rose. And I really love the stickers!

Emma Murphy-Smith said...

LOVE the colors in engraved flower - so gorgeous! And I love what you did with the map and washi tape - really inspiring! Amazing cards :-D

Nox said...

WOW - great cards - I love the washi tape detail on your beautiful world map card, and layered background details on some of the cards - lovely! As for a favourite item in the release - there are so many lovely things! But I love the dandelion stamp and die set!

Teri Smith said...

Virginia, how can you ask me to pick a favourite when I think they are all fabulous?!?! Okay, here goes - the first card because I adore the purple with the grey. These new ink colours are out of this world. I also like the way the floral image covers the whole of an A2 card. But really, I could say each one is my favourite because they all offer something unique. You are so very talented!

Lori R. said...

Love all 5 of your cards, they are all beautiful. Loved the way you added the washi tape to them. I think my favorite stamps from this release are the wild fern and the dandelion stamps. Thank you for sharing and inspiring.

I can't get over how large and varied this release is. Such lovely new products and you've used them to their best advantage. Loved all the new ink colors...so happy to see new greens and greys. But then I saw those incredible brown tones on that new rose and my eyes popped right out of my head. It's a gorgeous card but they all are. I wouldn't expect anything less from you.

Your background and contrast of the Medallion, just beautiful! Great inspiration for this release.

Annalisa Young said...

I think my favorite card is the 3rd one, because the brown rose is so unexpected. I would not have gone that route, but I love how it turned out. It looks almost suede. But let's face it, all your cards are treats to look at and incredible sources of inspiration, so I really appreciate you sharing with us!

Юлия said...
