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


Welcome to the September release blog hop and giveaway, you should have arrived here from Nathalie DeSousa, if not you can go back to the start of the hop at anytime by visiting the Altenew Card Blog or alternatively you can use the links at the end of this post to navigate.

As you can see from the image above this release is jam packed with stamps, dies, stencil, embossing folders and tools. We are also starting to see some of this years Christmas themed items! The release is in Store and ready to purchase.

My first card uses the new All About Thanks Word Die Set,I cut the layers from Black and ink glitter caed. I used the 6x6" Wildflower paper pad and Dotted Swirls Debossing die along with the Fine Frames Rectangle dies to add layers of interest.

Next up is the Cartoon Tulips Stamp set  and Coordinating Die set, I stamped in zingy yellows and greens. I used the All About Thanks Word Die Set to cut my sentiment. Using the Window Slats Embossing Folder and Verdant Walk 6x6 Paper Pad I created the background and then added a few Enamel Dots.

Are you ready for new Christmas Items? Here's the Dry Brush Poinsettia Stamp set and Coordinating die set. How pretty are they? I used the Buffalo Plaid Embossing Folder for the background, i like how it add's a little something without overpowering the design.

Here I have used the Bouquet of Love Stamp Set from a previous release with the new Greatest Blessing Stamp Set and Coordinating die set. I love how they look together, a little ink blending and very minimal colouring of the images creates such a clean look.

My last card is another new Christmas/festive set, I used the Joy to the world Typography Stamp set and Coordinating die set to create the focal sentiment, I added in the Simple coloring stencil too. The background was created with the Dotted Starburst cover die. The smaller sentiment was stamped on to a die cut using the Essential Sentiment Strip Dies.

Your next stop is Laurie Willison, before you go make sure to check out the giveaway information below.
