Altenew August 2022 Bold & Beautiful Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in Total Prizes!)

Hello friends!

Warning: Heavy photo post 

Welcome to Altenew Bold and Beautiful Collection Release Blog Hop! I am super excited to share 3 projects with you. If you arrive from Altenew Card Blog, you are in the right place. This is the 2nd stop of the blog hop. Hope you enjoy this very fun and inspiring blog hop. Be prepared for lots of Bold & Beautiful eye candy!
 
Let me introduce you to the unassumingly simple stamp set Arches of Flowers Stamp Stencil. I love the whimsical floral iamge and stamped it at the bottom (without the arch).
 
Altenew-Arches of Flowers Stamp & Stencil Bundle-One-Go Birthday Greetings Die-Well Read Stamp Set -001 
 
Here I combined stamping and a bit of dry watercoloring.  After stamping, I applied only tiny bit of water with the amazing Altenew Metallic Watercolor 14 Color Pan Set.

If you love subtle metallic look, you must have this Metallic Watercolor in your arsenal. Here I combined two sets of sentiments. Both One-Go Birthday Greetings Die, Well Read Stamp Set
are beautiful and useful in their own way.

For my 2nd card, I am using the SAME stamp set and now with the coordinating die. Can you see that it adds so much fun? I stamped and colored the piece as is.

 Next, I die cut another piece with the bottom trimmed off and inked up the background in green.  And then I adhered the two pieces together as one.

I decided to place them onto a piece of black cardstock. The contrast really makes this card a stand-out. You will see many more examples of using Arch of Flowers Stamp, Die & Stencil.

The details of this Floating Feather 3D Embossing Folder are simply fantastic!

 There are larger and finer feather all in one. I applied ink directly to Gel Plate. I then transfer the ink to the Floating Feather 3D Embossing Folder. This ensured the smooth and not-so-blotchy colors to the paper surface.

I think your prediction is correct, Virginia -- both of those sets are quite likely to sell out, especially when crafters see the lovely projects you made with them. I really enjoyed checking them out! It's amazing how different you were able to make those cards look even when using stamps from the same set. Your coloring is fabulous!! Thank you for the inspiration.

I really what you did with the first two cards, the second card seemed very "out of the box" using the circle element. And the texture with the feather was amazing!

P Beatty said...

Beautiful cards & sentiments. I love the touch of metallic watercolor!
