Altenew Thanks and Blessings Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)


Hello and welcome to my stop on the Altenew Thanks and Blessings Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Collection Release Blog Hop. If you've started at the beginning, you should be arriving from the blog of  Erum Tasneem.  I have the full hop list at the end of this post.

Thanks & Blessings Full Release Bundle

For your convenience, I have a small photo/and link of new products I used in each card samples. 

Rose Tea Stamp
& Die Bundle


Heat embossed outlines of the Rose Tea cup image made watercoloring a bit easier for me.


Floral Thanks Stamp
& Die Bundle

Layering guide

Crisp Inks Collection: Martian Terrain, Green Valley, Deep Blue Seas

This unique layering stamp set allows for multi colored blooms around the THANKS.


Layering guide

I just adore the shape of this sweet Bird! By building up the stamp layers of feathers with any combo of ink colors, one can create a songbird to delight any recipient.

Crisp Inks: Dew Drops, Aqualicious, Tide Blue, Volcano Lake, Cloudy Sky, Nimbus
I have found inking up the smooth side of the embossing folder and spritzing with water, to be the easiest way to make a stunning cardfront. Even my 3 year old helper was able to help with this technique! 

Block Builder Stencil
Set (2 in 1)

Layering guide
Simple Flowers Add-On
Stamp & Die Bundle

Crisp Inks Collection: Tropical Forest, Martian Terrain, Warm Sunshine
Obsidian Pigment Ink
TIP: cutting tiny slits on the edges of the BEAUTIFUL sentiment stamp allows for molding the stamp around a curve. Try this with any of your sentiments :))
Your next stop on the hop is Maryam Perez
