Altenew January 2023 Nostalgic Memories Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop #2 + Giveaway ($300 in Total Prizes!)

Hello Friends!
Today is the celebration of the Nostalgic Memories Stamp/Die/Stencil Release at ALTENEW. As the collection title infers, this release is sure to give those Nostalgic feels and smiles! 
Nostalgic Memories Collection

Take a look at how I crafted with several of the new goodies :)

Starting with my favorite:
✓ Sixties Sunshine 3D Embossing Folder
✓ Sixties Sunshine Simple Coloring Stencil Set (3 in 1)
✓ Label Love Add-On Stamp Set
After running 110# paper through my machine along with Sixties Sunshine 3D Embossing Folder, I played around with the Sixties Sunshine Simple Coloring Stencil Set to add bold pops of color. To get that full background coverage I inked the smooth side of the folder with GOLD pigment ink, put the colored paper back inside and ran it through the machine again. This also gave the crisp edges back to the embossed flowers which may have diminished with the ink blends. Then I finished with several sentiment strips from Label Love Add-On Stamp Set. And embellished with Enamel hearts.

TIP: Use the Artist Markers to color any of the Enamel Dots to coordinate with your projects :)
Next I sat down for a PREP crafting session using the  on to the  XOXO & More Die Set and ✓ Birthday Wish Die Set to make SEVERAL sentiments for later projects.
Ink blending through the Zero-Waste 3D Floral Cover Die makes a quick background. Then I colored the individual flowers for a sweet cluster on the super trendy Mini Instant Camera Frame Die.

Up next is the Nostalgic Florals Complete Bundle which was released early on the ALTENEW  MOBLIE APP 

✓ Nostalgic Florals Stamp Set
✓ Nostalgic Florals Die Set
✓ Nostalgic Florals Simple Coloring Stencil Set (3 in 1)
✓ Label Love Add-On Stamp Set

This card's design and colors were inspired by the #AltenewRIC challenge on IG.

LauraJane, All of your cards are wonderful. Your first I kept going back to. Those sentiments made me love that card. It made me laugh. And I love to laugh. Thank you for all of the different ways to use this release.

All of your cards are stunning. However, when I opened your blog page, the first card just jumped out at me. The colors and detail - WOW!!!! Thanks for the tip on coloring the enamel dots.

Beautiful the zero waste die

Donna Walls said...

Gorgeous cards and great products. I have one of the Label sets and so this one is on my must have list too!

Carole McKinney said...

Pretty cards! The gold background on the first card is amazing.

SandyK said...

Beautiful and exciting cards. Thank you for sharing.

Joy Meadows said...

Love all of your creations! The first card is so striking. Using the gold pigment ink on the embossing folder was a brilliant idea.

Bobbie Sumpter said...

I LOVE the red leaves you added to the Nostalgic Florals Stamp Set card! Just makes the whole thing pop! Great Job!

DorothyA said...

Wonderful cards! Your first and last cards are my favorites. Love the colors. The first card reminds me of a 6 year old birthday present I received in the 60's- a headband with pokie things on top to add layers of colorful flowers (kind of like how we layer flower die cuts LOL). I still relish the joy of "crafting" with flowers and colors. Is that how it all started?

Bobbie Sumpter said...

The sentiments are amazing, and love how delicate they look! Love the idea of sitting and just getting a bunch made ahead of time! This I think would be a set that you could get many different ones made because most of them are ones I would use and love the design of them. Thanks for sharing!

Jeanne Rice said...

I’m really loving the zero waste floral die. Beautiful cards.

Lisa's Creative Niche said...

Love the beautiful flowers made on the one with the stencil!

bzyPTmom said...

Thanks for sharing all of your gorgeous cards--so many! I love that cover die plate, 2 cards with one die, simply amazing!

Frannie R said...

Love that Zero Waste 3D Floral Die... your cards are a great inspiration.

Chaos & Happiness said...

Oh how I love your color combination on the Nostalgic florals stamp! The cover die helped to make them pop off of the card. Thank you for so much inspiration. I love your work!

Cindi G said...
