Altenew April 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil/Paper Pack Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello friends!
Warning: Super-heavy photo post 
Yay, it's April Release Blog Hop from Altenew!
If you arrive from the blog of Ashlea Cornell, 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 super excited to share 5 projects (yes, you read that right...FIVE) with you.
I had a hard time narrow them down because this release is absolutely stellar!
 Let's start with one of my favorites!

1. A Study in Watercolor and Fancy Hello Die
Altenew-AStudyInWatercolorStamp-Virginia#1

I love multi-color stamping and that is what I did with this stamp set.
Each time as I stamped, I picked up a different color.

Altenew-AStudyInWatercolorStamp-Virginia#2
With MISTI, this can be done so effortlessly.

Altenew-AStudyInWatercolorStamp-Virginia#3


The Fancy Hello Die is simply divine. I used the new paper collection Essential Rock Collection 
which gives the die a gradient effect.

2. Geometric Landscape Stamp Set
This geometric background is versatile with any type of designs and technique.
Altenew-GeometricLandscapeStamp-Virginia#1

I decided to create an encouragement card. Silver-embossing is perfect for this.With each color, I applied inks to one triangle at a time with the masking paper (I used scraps). It may seem laborious, but it really is not.

 The white part were left uncolored. I applied Pico White Embellisher and once it's dry, the surface became super white and shiny!

3. Bundle of Joy Stamp & Die Set and Essential Rock Collection
Next we have a very sweet yet sophisticated welcome Baby Card.
Altenew-BundleOfJoy-EssentialRockCollection-Virginia#1

The paper from Essential Rock Collection 
I was inspired by the paper and decided to follow the line and did a diagonal design.
Altenew-BundleOfJoy-EssentialRockCollection-Virginia#2

For the stars, you can simply use the dies and cut out each star. I love my inks so much that I did stamp and die cut all of the stars!
Altenew-BundleOfJoy-EssentialRockCollection-Virginia#3

The diagonal sentiment really compliments this design.

4. Summer Garden 6x6 Paper Pad and Weekend Doodles Stamps & Die Bundle
I must say that these two items are the MUST-HAVE.

Altenew-SummerGardenPaperPad-WeekenddoodleStampDie-Stamp-Virginia#1

The Weekend Doodles Stamps & Die Bundle is SO pretty and gorgeous.... I love the entire set and I can see myself creating with this one with various medium.



Altenew-SummerGardenPaperPad-WeekenddoodleStampDie-Stamp-Virginia#2

  Summer Garden 6x6 Paper Pad is packed with lovely patterns and colors. After stamping and die -die-cutting, this card is complete! It is so fun to play with stamps and pattern paper!
 
5. Delicate Flower Bed Stamp Set

The name says it all!  This large background stamp does have very very fine and detail lines!
Altenew-FancyHelloDie-DelicateFlowerBedStamp-Virginia#1
The white-embossed iamge allows me to color ease. I used the Watercolor Brush Markers to color the images. You can use Artist markers or any type of Water-coloring for this background. OR, simply stamp and use it has a subtle backdrop.

Altenew-FancyHelloDie-DelicateFlowerBedStamp-Virginia#2

I added two more dies from Fancy Hello Die for added dimension.

I always enjoy seeing how you create. You approach products in a different way than I do, so I always come away from your posts with a lot of ideas and new perspective.

So many things to comment on but will limit myself to just 1 since I have a lot of blogs to hop through. I'd never heard of that Tsueniko Pico white embellisher. I followed your link to SSS but it didn't explain what it is. Anyway, it looks interesting & I like that bright white!
