Ah, SUMMER NIGHTS; Fire flies, stargazing, and a good dose of crafting!

Welcome to my stop on the Altenew August 2020 Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Wax Seals Release Blog Hop + Giveaway You should be arriving from Nicole Watt's blog. I have the full hop list at the end of this post.


Check out the new Wax Seal goodies!!

Summer Nights Complete Wax Seal Release Bundle
Summer Nights Complete Wax Seal Release Bundle

Here is how I used the new Wax Seal Stamp - Delicate Blossom and the Wax Seal Stick Set.

I adhered the Delicate Blossom wax seal onto a colored bloom from Beauty Within Stamp & Die Bundle. Embellished with 'drips' of the Garnet wax amid several of the tiny branches from the stamp set.  
Learning to create with the Summer Nights Wax and Seal Bundle took a bit of practice. However, by working on a Watercolor Palette surface, melted wax could be easily lifted up and re-melted and sealed again, if the results din't please me the first, second. or third time:)) The process of learning was a new adventure for me, and I quit liked it! 



*******
Next up is an adorable tribe of critters in the 
Baby Shower Stamp & Die Bundle
Baby Shower Stamp & Die Bundle

I could not resist watercoloring the  Baby Shower Stamp Set with the Artists' Watercolor 24 Pan Set and cut them out with coordinating Baby Shower Dies.
*******
Next I fussy cut the critters apart and did some no-line coloring on each one with Artist Markers and placed them in a 'window box' of Nesting Ovals Die Set, That Banner image is flexible enough to be manipulated to a drape of any shape : )))

*******

Beauty Within Simply Coloring Stencil Set

The Beauty Within Simply Coloring Stencil Set was ground breaking for me!! I loved how quickly it this "colored" card front with all the layers of the stencils came together.

******
And finally , this is my favorite new stamp set in the release...
Beauty Within. The intricate tiny branches with coordinating dies are elements that I will be using often!
So exciting to have a Nesting Ovals Die Set from Altenew now!

Beautiful cards! I love how you used the nesting ovals! I think my favorites in this release are the zodiac splatter and wax seals I'm also very interested in the amaryllis, although I haven't seen anyone use it yet on the hop. It's a big deal to have an amaryllis bloom over the winter holidays where I live.

Anny said...

My goodness, I couldn’t choose one favorite they’re also pretty end well done!

gail said...

I gasped when I saw the wax seal on the flower, but it works.

Retta said...

What gorgeous cards! I especially love the card using the layering stencils. Beautiful!

Gail said...

I do like the flowers, the seal and those bears are stunning as well - each piece of art is a treasure - thanks for sharing!

April said...

All of your cards are stunning! Love the colroing. The seal for the center of the flower on the first card was a great idea. Love it!

Christina Dauven said...

I love the bloom card with the wax it is suprising how well that worked out.

Kimberly said...

Now that's a great idea -- use the wax to make little "enamel" dots. And -- duh! -- you can remelt your booboos!

ljcasselman said...

My favorites are the beauty within projects. I love what you’ve done!

Jade said...

Wow! So many incredible cards! I like them all! But my favorites are the Beauty Within set and the baby shower set. I love how you colored the flowers and animals.

Carolyn said...

Oh gosh your cards are just beautiful. I need to go shop!

Whiteibis said...

Beautiful work LauraJane. So much in the release, but my favorite has to be the new deal, wax seal stamps. Just something new to add to the card, tag, journal, etc. The total release has something for everyone. The zodiac set is just awesome. Happy day, Off to more happy hops.

Your cards are fabulous! I love your artwork. The layers are such a delight. I am especially intrigued with your background ovals, and how you created the frame looks in the baby card and your last card. Would be fun to see a video on how you did it (hint hint LOL!)
