Altenew April 2020 Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Stamping Mat/Sequins Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

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

All the details about this blog hop, please visit Altenew Card Blog

1. Featured products: Precious Bloom Stamp  
(the stamp die/mask combo are out of stock, stamp sets are still available)
Altenew-PreciousBloom StampSet-Mask-Virginia#1

At first sight, this set might just look like any other floral stamps. However, it really is different because it comes with two large masked flowers.
Altenew-PreciousBloom StampSet-Mask-Virginia#2

If you enjoy stamping a floral background like I do, I highly recommend this set. The Color-layering is super easy to do thanks to the design.  I had a blast creating this card since I also used the mask for coloring!

I took a executive decision to cut out the inner part of the stamped design. I then stamped the sentiment on the smallest Nesting Frame Dies. noticed that I also added a piece of Gold String Washi Tape? I love how this turned out!


2. Featured products: Sweet Spring Stencil (must-have!)
Altenew-Sweet Spring Stencil-Antique Gold Sequins-Virginia#1

What can I say? This stencil is taking color-layering to another level! I love how EFFORTLESS it is to add depth and colors with a stencil.

Altenew-Sweet Spring Stencil-Antique Gold Sequins-Virginia#2

I inked up the spaces with yellow, purple orange, pink and green. It didn't take long at all. I then used my beloved Ornate Cover Die for the embellishment. I carefully trimmed off the die and used the bottom part only.

 Thanks to the Ornate Cover Die, I kept the layer to minimum.

3. Featured products: Just Jasmine Stamp & Die & Mask Bundle
( this set is highly recommended. I will feature 3 more cards on this set over Altenew blog soon)

Altenew-Just Jasmine-Satin White Sequins-Virginia#1
I first Googled the Jasmine flowers and found that the most comment ones are white! I decided to keep the petals white. to do that, I actually clear-embossed the Jasmine Flowers after stamping the details on the petals. The solid images were perfect to mask off the white. 

Altenew-Just Jasmine-Satin White Sequins-Virginia#3

Once the Jasmine Flowers are clear-embossed, I can then inked up the background with a few shades of blue.  The Pure White Ink Splatter and Satin White Sequins are perfect for this.
