Altenew December 2019 Ink Release Blog Hop + Giveaway + Video


Hello card making friends! 

I'm excited to be a part of the Altenew Blog Hop celebrating the release of three beautiful new dye Ink collections. If you're hopping along from the beginning you should be coming from the blog of ..Lilith Eeckels,if you get lost along the way, I have the full bloghop list at the end of this post.


Take a look at the THREE new collections:

This is the first collection of OVAL ink pads that I have had..and I really appreciate the ease of inking up an image compared to the Mini Cubes..While I find the mini cubes to store easily in Tins in my small craft space.. there is that benefit of not having to deal with square ink lines that often happen with the minis. All of the Oval ink pad collection is on my Christmas list now!! #fullsetsyndrome 
In my opinion it's a must have to own all four inks in each collection for no-brainer layered stamping. Choosing shades that work together is already perfectly coordinated for creating  projects with depth of color due to the four shades of color in each collection. The Mini cubes are more affordable but as I stated above, inking with the Oval ink pads is dreamy!






Aren't those colors SCRUMPTIOUS?!? After seeing my cards, you will know which one is my favorite :)) They all work beautifully together as well as individually.


I've created five cards for today. 

Let's take a closer look at each one: 



For this first card 
I used the coordinating stencil to Baroque Motifs to ink blend. Then I stamped over the top of that by inking all four of the colors from Tranquility onto the stamp using my MISTI tool. The Fancy Hello die cut looks great on top of the Baroquet Motif. 


I have a video tutorial for this card on my YouTube channel.

Watch below or over there:

For the second card using Tranquility
 I again started ink blending on a white piece of cardstock going from darkest to lightest inks in the set. Then stamped some outlines from the Perfectly Perfect stamp set with all four colors: using the Dark Knight towards the bottom then work my way up to Nimbus, Cloudy Sky and Misty Morning. Embellished with a sweet Painted butterfly.



***********
For the third card: 
 I mixed both Tranquility and Sugarplums on the Like Family mini stamp set. Inspired by Jaycee, I wanted this pretty bloom to look more like a succulent....so I went for the blues and added a little bit of depth of Plum from Sugarplums collection. Love how this inked up! Then I layered it with the Pegboard Canvas cover die


***********

Wanting to show how beautifully all three of these new collections work together; 
I reached for the Angelique Motifs stamp set.

You can see how beautifully Dots in Maple Washi embellished this one!



***********
And for my final card, 
 I chose one of my very first stamp sets from Altenew; Painted Butterflies. I inked these flutterbys with the Fall Harvest Dye Ink collection and embossed with one layer with Rose Gold Crisp embossing powder. Then I stamped and embossed several of the sentiments from the set, cut them down to banner size and inked them with the Cloudy Sky from the Tranquility collection. I also had fun with some splatters of the Tranquility... 

**********
So I guess you'd have to say Tranquility was my favorite since it appears in all the cards I made for today's post. I don't know, I just love, love the tones of these three new ink collections. Thank you Altenew for sending them to me!
