Altenew July 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello friends! I'm super excited to be a part of the Altenew July 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop.
If you are hopping along from the start, you should be arriving from Sandra Dietrich's blog. The full hop list as at the end of this post for your convenience.

I feel so blessed to be a guest designer for this blog hop! Altenew has once again blown me away with yet another NEW release filled with unique products to broaden our craft supply. I had the pleasure of creating with several of them for today's post. Take a look!











Make sure to scroll all the way to the end of this post to see a bonus card;)

First up: Floral Alphabet stamp set

Floral Alpha Bundle

I created a one layer card based on lessons learned from the Class at Altenew Academy: One-Layer Wonders taught by Kelly Latevola.
The stamped Floral Alphabet looks so pretty colored with the Artistic Markers. That is the new Needlework Motif  stamp used to create a simple pattern background in Maple Yellow crisp ink from the mini cube set..

******************************
Then I used the Floral Alphabet stamp set to create a 3D home decor project:) Yes, I'm hooked on stitching!

The simple lines in the Floral Alphabet stamp set are perfect for brushing up on basic embroidery stitches!  After finishing the stitching, I stained the embroidery hoop with Crisp inks to coordinated with my #HOOPART:)
*******************************

Next up is the multilayer Life is Awesome stamp set along with the Leaf Frame cover die

Life is Awesome Bundle
Leaf Frame


Life is Awesome stamp set layers inked with the following Mini cube sets:
Leaf Frame cover die cut from Real Gray cardstock



*******************************
And my last project today, Needlework Motif stamp set and coordinating dies:
Needlework Motif Bundle
This delightful image from Needlework Motif colored up quickly with  Artistic Markers. The coordinating die cuts the scrolling image beautifully! I then inked a pattern background using the set A Gift for You image, inked with Industrial Diamond Crisp ink. 
The black cardstock elements are cuts from Create A Wreath and Gradient Stripes Cover Die.

******************************
And as a bonus, I took some time to stitch/create one more card:) 
The Oval Embroidery Hoop Die Set is a beautiful addition to the Altenew Stand-Alone Die family! I love how this Hoopart card turned out!

Oval Embroidery Hoop Die Set

To make the card,


I thought the embellishment swag need a bit more something, so I created three Wheel Roses with the embroidery floss and glued them to the center.

Hope you enjoyed my creations today and maybe give stitching on some projects as well.
