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

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

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

I have categorized my cards based on the feature products. Let's get right to it!


1. feature products: Wallpaper Art Stamp & Die Bundle
Altenew-WallpaperArtStampDie-Virginia#1

This stamp set comes with layering solid and outline images.

Altenew-WallpaperArtStampDie-Virginia#2

Not only I used the coordinating dies for die-cutting, I also made some dry-embossing with them.
Altenew-WallpaperArtStampDie-Virginia#3
The floral image was colored with Artist Brush Markers.

Altenew-WallpaperArtStampDie-Virginia#4

I love stamping solid images as I took advantage of MISTI. I then stamped the leaves with various colors. 

2. feature products: Versatile Vase Stamp & Die Bundle and Watercolor Doodles
Altenew-WatercolorDoodles-VersatileVaseStampMask-Virginia#1

This nearly One-layer card has a lot of details. I was having so much fun with Versatile Vases Stamp, Die & Stencil and decided to do some masking, embossing (Antique Gold) with Dotted Washi Tape.

Altenew-WatercolorDoodles-VersatileVaseStampMask-Virginia#2

The loose and lovely stamp set "Watercolor Doodles" is absolutely fun to create with.
Altenew-WatercolorDoodles-VersatileVaseStampMask-Virginia#3
 There's no need for lining up the stamps perfectly as it is supposed to be FREE style!

Altenew-WatercolorDoodles-VersatileVaseStampMask-Virginia#4
 I simply stamped the images inside the vase and make a natural formation with the flower arrangement.

3. feature products: One Day at a Time Stamp Set
This stamp set is easily the coolest background. ever.
Altenew-OneDayatATime-Virginia#1
 I tried to make it cool so I did some white embossing and colored  the marbled image with Watercolor Brush Markers.


Altenew-OneDayatATime-Virginia#2

While I was having fun with the Watercolor Markers, I also added the silver for all borders.
Altenew-OneDayatATime-Virginia#4
 Love the sentiment in this set, too.

Altenew-OneDayatATime-Virginia#3

(last but not the least...) 😀
4.  feature products: Book Club Stamp & Die Bundle
Altenew-BookClubStampDie-Virginia#1

This is no ordinary Book Mark Stamp.... it is so ornate and detailed.
I turned the book mark design into a card.
Altenew-BookClubStampDie-Virginia#2

You see, the circle die in the middle can come apart, so I added a layering of gold Foil Card Stock and off set the die. This book mark die is a MUST-have if you are in love with the stamp.
The sentiment are from the Scrapbook "Live Your Dream" Collection. They are so neat and handy!

Altenew-BookClubStampDie-Virginia#3
I added some splatter and hearts ( leftovers from "Radial Heart Cover Die").

Altenew-BookClubStampDie-Virginia#4

Wow! I love what you have created with the new stamps! I think the Wallpaper Art is my favorite of the new release. I love old fashioned wallpaper designs that look like they came out of an English country cottage. I also love the inside of old books that have marblized paper on the fly leaves. Your card is so pretty. I think the book stamp is really a great stamp and you are right, it is no regular book stamp!

Wow, Virginia!!! Using the die to dry emboss on the first card turned out so lovely. I am amazed at how the one day at a time card turns out...I have got to try that technique.

There are too many fabulous options to choose from in this new release.
