It's release day for Altenew and I am super excited to share some cards I created witht the new Altenew Summer Fun Release. Lets jump right in and see whats new.
For this first card I used the new Courageous you stamp set, it's a huge stamp and really packs a punch. I used the Courageous you simple coloring stencil to add colour, it's a really cool stencil as it allows you to add color with out thinking too much, it reallyhelps to make card making quick and stress free. I added a sentiment using the new Mega Label Love stamp set, I was a big fan of the original Lable Love stamps,but these are awesome.
The Floral in and out border die was actually part of last months release but I only recieved it with this months goodies so I had to share it. I cut it from white card, added some colour using my waterbrush markers and overlayed it onto a black card panel.
I used the Circled Hello die to cut an apperture into my card, I love how you get the circle with the sentiment attached. I used the Fragile Foliage stamp set and heat embossed, I filled the shaker with Satin white sequins and Satin gold sequins. You have no idea how hard it is to photograph a card with metallic elements and acetate, the glare is unreal.
The Geometric Elements stamp set is a really nice addition to my crafty stash, it's great for making male cards, here I clear heat embossed the images and then used teal inks to create an ombre over the top. I spritzed water over the ink and dabbed with a paper towel, it gives a velvet effect and looks so cool in real life. I added a sentiment using Mega Label Love stamp set.
Balloon Bunch stamp set and Balloon Bunch mask made creating this scene a breeze, the sentiment is from the Script word dies set. I think these balloons will be perfect for so many occasions but especially childrens cards.
I couldn't help but make a second card using the Courageous you stamp set, this time I stamped on to watercolour card and dripped inks down the panel, It's a rather funky effect.
Alten Riding by is the latest addition to Altenew's charecter stamps, they dont have many but when they do I just have to grab them. He so scute and easy to layer.
Checkerboard stamp set is another fun background set, it allows you to create lots of different designs, I teamed it with the Bold Alpha dies and Best Dad stamp set to cretae a card that could work for a brithday or fathers day.
As you can probably tell I love the Mega Label Love stamp set, I thought creating a background form all the stamp would be really fun, I added somehearts from the Love letters stamp set and Love letters die set.
The Terrific Tags die set is another that was released last month, I die cut 6 tags and used the following stencils to add embossing paste, Bubble wrap , Sunburst, On the plus side, Wild Leopard print, Diamond snowflakes and Broken chevrons, I then added ink, splatters and a sentiment with the Hang in there die. I'm really trying to mix thigns up a bit a not only create CAS style cards.
Well there you have it, I hope I've inspired you and perhaps you've seen a new stamp or die you'd like to try out. Until next time take care.
