Altenew Fresh Start Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 Hello friends!

Warning: Super-heavy photo post 

Welcome to Fresh Start Release Blog Hop from Altenew!
I am super excited to share 4 projects with you.
If you arrive from the blog of Zsoka Marko, you are in the right place!

All the details about this blog hop, please visit Altenew Card Blog 
You will also see all of my 4 cards in Altenew Card Blog 

Feature products #1: Versatile Vases 2 Stamp & Die Bundle, Spotted Orchid Stamp Stencil & Die Bundle
Altenew-Versatile Vases 2 Stamp & Die Bundle-Spotted Orchid Stamp Stencil & Die Bundle

If you love The Versatile Vases, you know how versatile and fun to use these vases along with your floral creations. This Vase 2 will take your floral arrangement to new height!

For the vase, I clear-embossed it vase on Transparent Vellum. I then took the Artist Alcohol Markers and colored the backside of the vase. Inside the vase, I also added some "dirt", leaves and stems.  The Coordinating Die makes die cutting the vase a simple task.

Let's not forget the obvious.... the Spotted Orchid Stamp Stencil & Die Bundle is absolutely spot on. I can not believe the realistic look of these stamps can achieve!  I stamped the orchid in Martian Terrain Crisp Dye Ink and used the Layering Stencil for the largest outer layer. The petals look even lighter and more realistic!

Feature products #2: A little Bit of Love Stamp & Die Bundle-Woven Heart Die Set

As a fresh start, what could be more perfect to promote friendship and love with this "A little Bit of Love" Stamp Set?

 I love that you now can coordinate ANY skin color based on your recipient(s) and yours...down to the finger nails!  The Woven Heart Die provides the perfect background for this design. Isn't that heartwarming?

Feature products #3: Enchanted Rose Stamp Set-Illusion Heart Die Set

This Illusion Heart Die Set can be used in so many ways. You can simply use just outlines, partially inlaid (as example here) or completely inlaid!

The Enchanted Rose Stamp Set is likely the largest outline stamp there is! If you love coloring, this is definitely worth considering.

If you love embossing (like I do), this stamp set has gorgeous lines and details.  To top off the gorgeous backdrop, the Illusion Heart Die Set is surely to catch your eyes!
 
 
We all love the ease of using an embossing folder! This Swirl Motif 3D Embossing Folder provides that special touch of elegance.  The motif is bold and yet subtle.

The stamped, stenciled and diecut Spotted Orchid looks stunning against the motif and Gold String Washi Tape.

Thanks Virginia! Your cards are beautiful and so different from what I'm seeing on the blog hop. Truely fresh and new :). your Enchanted Rose with the Heart die is my fav.

The way you made the layers of blue water is perfect!

Sra. Spitzer said...

Hi, Virginia - I really like the card you made with "A little bit of love" and think that being able to change the skin tone color is a piece of progress that is right in line w/ the times. I also loved the first card shown, the one in the vase. I will take a look at that intriguing set that has all the vases. I love flowers but struggle w/ that type of design. I'm not a huge fan of masking.

Thanks for sharing.

I truly adore the card you did with the 3 pink orchids on the black background. I was sure the orchid set would be my choice of this release, then I made the mistake of watching the unboxing video. Oh my gracious!
