Altenew November 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway + Video


Hello everyone, Today I'm thrilled to be part of the Altenew November 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway..and YES, I have a VIDEO :)) If your'e arriving from Therese Calvird's blog then you're on the right track.

Take a quick peek at the five cards I've created for today:



FULL Release:
November 2019 Full Release Bundle
As you can see, I've only created with a fraction of the newest items from this release..The layering stamps are SUPER easy to work with and the STAND-ALONE dies are MUST HAVE for your Altenew Stash!!

Here's a closer look at each card and the shopping list of featured items used in the cards.

The Classic Beauty Stamp & Die Bundle has a glorious new layered rose with stem and greenery! Each layer has an Alpha/ Numeric code for each so I can tell you exactly what inks I used for which layer.
Find the Beauty....Featuring:
Classic Beauty Stamp & Die Bundle
Dot Botanicals Stamp Set
Crisp Inks
I found that second generation stamping on the rose created a lighter variation for this trio :)

Crisp inks used for yellow roses:
A1 Citrus Burst
A2 Fresh Lemon
A3 Sunray
A4 Chamomlie

Crisp inks used for the orange rose:
A1 Sunray
A2 Chamomile
A3 Snapdragon
A4 Marigold

For the Stem/Leaves I used a mix of Tropical Forest and Green Fields Collections  varying each layer for  more interest...plus I like to see how changing up the colors can give such a unique look. 

*********************************************************************************
Mix & Match Mariposa Die Set is the star of the next two cards!
Mariposa is Spanish for Butterfly
I'm swooning over this stand alone die set filled with 8 dies. I played with all the layers together, mixing and matching as the name suggests. My son spend a morning die cutting a whole Flutter of butterflies for me as I was inking up the Layered Dahlia Stencils A& B. It was a lovely morning spent together in the craftroom!
Hello Beautiful....Featuring:
Mix & Match Mariposa Die Set
Layered Dahlia Stencils A& B
Classic Beauty Stamp Set for sentiment
Our Family 12 x 12 Patterned Paper collection


All those Butterflies were cut from one piece of paper from the Our Family 12 x 12 Patterned Paper collection. We decided the negative cuts were too pretty to throw away...and so the card below was created with the suggestion, by my daughter,  to add white Wavy Outlines Dies for more interest. YES, cardmaking has become a family affair in my house and I appreciate all advice and suggestions from them :)
Just for you...Featuring:
Mix & Match Mariposa Die Set
Layered Dahlia Stencils A& B
Wavy Outlines Die Set
Breezy Bouquet Stamp & Die Bundle for the sweet tiny sentiment tag
Our Family 12 x 12 Patterned Paper collection
*********************************************************************************

Moving the focus to the Wavy Outlines Die Set for the next card:
I die-cut several Wavy Outlines Die Set and backed them with paper from the Our Family 12 x 12 Patterned Paper collection arranged them onto a machine stitched panel and embellished with a layered Mariposa. I LOVE how this turned out!
For YOU...Featuring:
Wavy Outlines Die Set
Our Family 12 x 12 Patterned Paper
Mix & Match Mariposa Die Set
Regal Beauty stamp set sentiment

*********************************************************************************
Regal Beauty Stamp & Mask Stencil offered the opportunity to stamp a one layer card in my wild overgrown cluster style.

Watch the Start to Finish process video of this card:

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Lavender Release Blog Hop + Giveaway +Video

Hello Build-A-Flower fans!!
There's a BEAUTIFUL new release in the Build-A-Flower collection at Altenew! Just look at the Build-A-Flower: Lavender. It's one of my favorites, which calls for using ALLLLL the shades of Purple inks with a kiss of Blues.
I'm so happy to have been able to create with this stamp and die bundle, and honored to be on the Blog Hop list celebrating it's release. Thank you Altenew for sending it to me:))

This is a multi layer set that includes several different sentiments in a pretty handwritten font.
*********************************************************

Take a closer look at my samples for today:
First up, I simply stamped all the layers of the Build-A-Flower: Lavender onto white card stock...then masked it using the coordinating die and stamped the solid layers of the blooms and stem to create the illusion of a bundle.  a tiny bit of fussy cutting around one edge allows more of that pattern paper to peek out for more interest.
THANKS a BUNCH...Featuring:
Build-A-Flower: Lavender
Enchanted Garden Crisp inks
Green Fields Crisp inks
Enchanted Gold pigment ink
Reflection Paper 6x6 Paper Pack
Enamel Dots

Watch my video of this cardmaking session from start to finish:)) You can watch below or on my YouTube channel.


******************************************************

Next, I stamped a background and added some blues from the Lapis Lazuli collection on the flower heads of the Lavender. 
 Thinking of you....Featuring:
Build-A-Flower: Lavender
Shades of Purple Crisp inks
Enchanted Garden Crisp inks
Green Fields Crisp inks
Lapis Lazuli Crisp Inks
String Art Rectangles Die Set
Reflection Paper 6x6 Paper Pack
Enamel Dots
 A quick whip stitching around the edges of the panel using the largest of the String Art Rectangles Die Set adds a touch of texture.
******************************************************

Lavender is known for it's calming fragrance and medicinal qualities. Repeat stamping a sentiment background for this hanging bunch was relaxing as well.
LOVE YA....Featuring:
Build-A-Flower: Lavender
Shades of Purple Crisp inks
Enchanted Garden Crisp inks
Green Fields Crisp inks
Lapis Lazuli Crisp Inks
Create-A-Wreath Die Set ...for extra greenery
Enchanted Gold pigment ink
Golden Edge Washi Tape
Enamel Dots
Pattern paper from my stash

******************************************************
For my final card, I inked third layer of the blooms with Wisteria ink, then the most detailed layer of the BAF: Lavender with Enchanted Gold pigment ink for a dramatic, almost white flower.
 After die-cutting a circle from the background panel..I bent the sentiment to hug the edges and repeat stamped for a subtle sunny effect. Then I softly inked around the circle with a blending brush and Lavender Fields fading out to a stenciled bottom half. Dragging the Enchanted Gold pigment ink pad down from the top created a unique finish.
SENDING HUGS...Featuring:
Build-A-Flower: Lavender
Shades of Purple Crisp inks
Enchanted Garden Crisp inks
Green Fields Crisp inks
Enchanted Gold pigment ink
Graph Die Cut Tape...as a stencil
Enamel Dots
