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.
