Altenew January 2020 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

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

All the details about this blog hop, please visit Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog

First up, I am sharing my absolute favorite stamps in this release. 
For your easy reference, the cards are listed and based on the products.


Card #1 product feature: Tartan Stamp Set, Watercolor Halftone Stamp & Die Bundle

Altenew-WatercolorHalftone-Tartan-Virginia#2

 Let's start with the background.... it is 100% stamped. I chose the grid stamp from Tartan and inked up the edges. The background looks absolutely AMAZING!

    
I created the focal point with Watercolor Halftone Stamp & Die Bundle 

Altenew-WatercolorHalftone-Tartan-Virginia#3  

Isn't it gorgeous? After stamping it in various colors, I die cut a few more and stacked them up. Basically, I was creating my own chipboard.

All I can say is that this card is lovely and sturdy (thanks to the stacked dies)!

Card #2 product feature: Frame Thanks Die and Tartan Stamp Set
Altenew-Tartan-FramedThanksDieSetVirginia#1

I took the full advantage of the Tartan Stamp Set and stamped in mint green and blue combo.

Once I am happy with the pattern, I added the  Frame Thanks Die 
Altenew-Tartan-FramedThanksDieSetVirginia#3  
For  the sentiment thanks, I adhered a piece of gold foil die over and that's it.
This is now a very proper thank-you card for any gender.

Card #3 product feature: Ornate Cover Die and Watercolor Halftone Stamp & Die Bundle 

Altenew-OrnateCoverDie-WatercolorHalftone-Virginia#1

I started out applying inks all over the paper and made the die cut.

By following the came colors,  I stamped one of the image from Watercolor Halftone Stamp & Die Bundle.

 This card looks so intricate and dainty, but it's the the dies that are doing all the work.

Ornate Cover Die is certainly unique and well... ornate! 

Card #4 product feature: Mod Vase Stamp & Die Bundle and Vase Filler Stamp & Die Bundle.
 Warning: the Mod Vase Stamp/dies/mask stencil are super popular! Act fast before they are sold out.

Altenew-Tartan-ModVaseStamp&Die-VaseFillersStamp& Die-Virginia#1

I stamped the Tartan Stamp Set over the gray card stock. Next comes the fun part...
Stamp your own vase and flowers for the vase.

I am amazed at the combinations that you can come up with various vases and floral designs. I even kiss-stamped the floral onto the vase. I have 3 MORE projects with this set coming up next. 
Be sure to come back to check them out here in my blog.
