Altenew Summer Adventure Stand-alone Dies Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Welcome to the June Stand-Alone die release blog hop and giveaway for Altenew, You should have arrived here from Sandhya Iyer, if not you can go back to the start of the hop at any time by visiting Altenew Card Blog. 
Altenew have just released 7 new Stand-Alone die sets. Including an awesome new sentiment set that will add a really cool feel to your projects. I have created 5 cars using the new items, let's take a look at.


I used the Rings Border die cut four times from two different shades of Orange card, I adhered them to a piece of double sided adhesive. I then sprinkled with green glitter, this gave  me an awesome background for the floral element to sit against, I used the Tropical Jungle Stamp and die set along with my Artist markers. Finally I added a sentiment using the All about you word die.

For my second card I used an A2 card base along with a piece of the Dreamy Sunset 6x6 paper. I cut the Peeking Leaves cover die from a piece of green cardstock and adhered it to the card base. I then used the All about you word die to cut from vellum and the same paper used in the background. 

For my third card I used the All about you word die along with the Moroccan Lattice cover die. I added a butterfly from the Dovetail Butterflies Stamp and Die set.

My next project is a fridge magnet. I used the Abstract Seascape Cover Die, I cut it 7 times and adhered them together and then onto a very thick piece of card. I used Altenew's Watercolor brush markers to add color to each section. I then added seed beads to all of the waves sections before filling them with a glossy glaze to give the look of stained glass. Lastly I added a strip of self adhesive magnetic tape to the rear.

My final card uses the Abstract Landscape Cover die. I cut the die from both white and black card. I used my Altenew Metallic Ink sprays to add colour to the die cut landscape sections. Once dry I added them and the black outline to a card base. I then added a heat embossed sentiment from the Spectacular Adventures stamp set.

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

 

Welcome to Altenew's June release "Adventures Ahead", you should have arrived here from Jennifer McGuire's blog, if not you can go back to the start of the hop at any time by visiting the Altenew Card Blog

This release is packed full of crafty goodness, Stamps, Die's, stencils, washi tape, paper pads and decals!



My first card features the Spectacular Adventures Stamp and Die set, I love the really modern feel to this stamp set, I stamped three sets of glasses each with a different scene. I placed them on to a piece of brown embosses cardstock, I used the Brick Wall Embossing Folder, I lightly sanded the raised areas and then rubbed a light brown ink pads over them to give a more realistic look. How cool is this card? 

I created a second card using the Spectacular Adventures Stamp and Die set. I created the background by ink blending Distress Oxide inks onto Bristol smooth cardstock, I then used the Dotted Lines Debossing cover die to add background detail. I stamped a sentiment from the Let's Go stamp set, I love the blended background it feels like a sunset.

Next up we have the Lets Go stamp set and coordinating die set, this is a really fun stamp set. I chose to pair it with the Waffled Diamonds embossing folder, I embossed some beige/light kraft coloured card and then rubbed a Burgundy ink over the raised areas, these 3D embossing folders have such a good emboss the only the high areas catch the ink.

Next is a really fun card using the Stellar stamp and die set along with the Mountain Builder die set, I chose to use really bright fun colours. These two sets go so well together, The mountains are so easy to use.

I am in love with the Colour Bands die set, I really needed a rainbow die set in my life and this one hits the spot. I created a background using the Cloud scene stencil and some light blue ink. I added a sentiment from the Halftone Circles stamp set.

My final card is a cute shaker using the Colour Bands die set, I cute them out of a panel to create lots of windows and added acetate to the reverse, I used foam tape and added some sequins. I used a rainbow strip paper behind. I felt it looked really bare so used some of my alcohol markers to add dots. I then used the Essential Sentiment Strip dies to add lots of colourful sentiments.
