Altenew January 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello friends!
Warning: Super-heavy photo post 
s
Yay, it's January Release Blog Hop from Altenew!
I am super excited to share 4 projects with you.
If you arrive from the blog of Seekayou are in the right place!

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

First up, let's start with something classy and elegant.
Featured products:  Stain Glass Stamp and Fancy Frames Stamp & Die Bundle

I didn't expect these two sets work so well together, but they do!
The lace stamp is so intricate and gorgeous! The Stain Glass stamp set is very thoughtfully-designed.

Altenew-FancyFrameDie-StainGlassWindow-Virginia#1  

Isn't the stain glass image amazing? I silver-embossed the outline 3 times. Therefore, you see the very prominent silver edges.

Altenew-FancyFrameDie-StainGlassWindow-Virginia#4

As for the frame, I stamped the delicate frame in Turquoise and then dry-embossed it with the die and tan embossing mat. This creates a very subtle letter press effect.

Altenew-FancyFrameDie-StainGlassWindow-Virginia#2

I also added a few droplets of Nuvo and sequins. VERY classy, huh?

Featured products:  Floral Heart Frame Die
Isn't this die absolutely divine!?
 Altenew-FloralHeartFrameDie-Virginia#1


I love stretching the use of dies. So like my previous project, I dry-embossed the heart (with the tan embossing mat) to add extra textures.

Altenew-FloralHeartFrameDie-Virginia#2

How does that piece of red-ish die cut come about? I sprayed Altenew's Ink Spray to create rich and vibrant paper. Once dry, I made the die cut and adhered it to the black card stock.

Altenew-FloralHeartFrameDie-Virginia#3
This design is fabulous for all occasions. All you need is to change up the sentiment.


Featured products: Radial Cover Die
This die is truly one of a kind. I can think of so many ways of using it....
  Altenew-RadialHeartsCoverDie-Virginia#1
 
Again, I started out by creating a colorful  paper with Watercolor Brush Markers.

Altenew-RadialHeartsCoverDie-Virginia#3

I then made the die cut and popped two gold hearts back in and one in the center.
It really is easy yet so effective!  Altenew's Gold Foil Card stock is amazing. I highly recommend it.

Altenew-RadialHeartsCoverDie-Virginia#4
 
The cover die is so neat that you can fit every piece back like a puzzle.
Speaking of puzzle, wouldn't it be cool to send the extra heart pieces along with the card, so the receiver will get to play with the puzzle? 

 Featured products: Wonderland Stamp Die and Mask Stencil Bundle 
This is one amazing set. The stencil is so thin that it will not leave you a white edge while stamping.
Altenew-WonderlandMaskStencil-Virginia#1


This gorgeous set is a must-have if you love stamping techniques!
The masked stencil, die are amazing arsenal when creating intricate and detailed designs.
Altenew-WonderlandMaskStencil-Virginia#3
 
I started out  in stamping the large bloom and colored it with Altenew Artist Markers (Set E).
With the positive mask, I covered the large flower and stamped the smaller flowers. 
While doing that, I inked up the background with Citrus Lemon and Feeling Dotty Stencil. 
Altenew-WonderlandMaskStencil-Virginia#4
 
I finished it off with the sentiment with Golden Edge Washi Tape.
What do you think? I love love this set and I hope that you do, too!

You have some real stunners that you've made with this release. All that dry embossing makes me swoon and I love the idea of sending the loose hearts from the cover die so the recipient can puzzle in the pieces. You're a genius. Just so you know, I've gone over to shop.

WOW amazing work. Love them

lynda said...

My fave is the black heart because of how you sprayed the overlay paper to get the color you wanted. I have never thought to spray a paper to change it's color. I've only thought of sprays for misting or droplets. It's such an obvious choice now that you've introduced it to me!

Maryann Sullivan said...

How gorgeous are these?! Love them all, Virginia, although the last two must be my favourites, for sure! This release is yet again a great one (how do Altenew do it?!), but what stands out to me this time are the 3D dies - so cool and different, I love how these flowers just pop off the front card panels! I'll need to get my hands on a set or two!

You did an amazing job with the products you used. And I agree, the Fancy Frame and Stained Gluass do work very well together. And I love your idea of including the hearts from the Radial Heart Cover Die along with the card.... For a puzzle effect. I know my Great Niece would get a huge kick out of that. Thank you for the idea.

So many beautiful creations but my favorite is what you made using the Wonderland Stamp Set, Die and Mask Bundle. I love how you made the focal point flower in the front colorful and the ones in the background were just the outline.
