Altenew Adventures Ahead Stamps/Dies/Stencils/More Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Happy JUNE everyone!!
I'm excited to be part of the Altenew Adventures Ahead Stamps/Dies/Stencils/More Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway. The FULL Blog Hop list is at the end of this post.

Take a look at the Adventures Ahead Full Release Bundle below:

Adventures Ahead Full Release Bundle 

I played with the new paper packs for my first two cards today. 

First up is the Rainbow Blots which is full of  ACOHOL ink backgrounds without the hassle of making them yourself! I LOVE the look of alcohol inked projects but my body can't handle the fumes that often come with the technique, so this 6x6 paper pack is a MUST HAVE for my stash.

Rainbow Blots 6x6 Paper Pack 



And a second card using the actual Mega Friend Die cut from the paper. The grey paper is from the new Dreamy Sunset 6x6 Paper Pack .

Tall Foliage Stamp Set - stamped sentiment
The next card has the lovely Sisters of the Heart Stamp colored with the stencil, then the Brick Wall 3D Embossing Folder embossed on one of the papers from  Dreamy Sunset 6x6 Paper Pack .

Dreamy Sunset 6x6 Paper Pack 


TIP: After using the 3D embossing folder on the paper, gently run a sanding block across the raised elements for more definition.


I am so excited about this next set because I have a son that volunteers as a Balloon Chase/Catcher. 
Did you know that a Hot Air Balloon pilot doesn't know exactly where the balloon will land and the balloon also needs to be Caught?

Crisp Inks: Lapis Lazuli, Enchanted Garden, Shades of Purple
Instant Dimension Foam Tape

Lastly, here is a SUPER quick and easy card highlighting the Evening Skyline Washi Tape
Crisp Inks: Lapis Lazuli
Up & Away Stamp- sentiment

Great cards. I love your use of the patterned paper and also your Up and Away card.

Yvonne said...

Your cards are beauitiful! I especially love the card using Up and Away! Your color choices and sentiment are perfect. Compliments to Altenew for creating the balloon flying away so you view it from under neath instead of straight on.

Eve N said...

Fun cards! I love your idea of using the patterned paper as a big element of your designs.

Em said...

I love your brick wall and the card with the Evening sky line Washi Tape is stunning.

The blues of the balloon are beautiful. I like how you left the people uncolored so that you focus on the balloon first!

Wow, wow, WOW! I am wondering if the Altenew designers are baseball fans? They sure have knocked it out of the park with this release!

Denise Bryant said...

TL Johnson said...

You out did yourself with all these wonderful makes. I just have to get some alcohol inks to try making some backgrounds. This is what I love about the hops you and your team mates always go the extra mile in making some spectacular makes and provide not only fun viewing the hops but inspiring us to step outside our comfort zone.
