Altenew November 2021 Sparkle and Shine Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)

Welcome to the November release from Altenew, you should have arrived here from the super awesome Tenia Nelson, if not you can go back to the start of the hop by visiting the Altenew Blog.

The Sparkle and Shine collection is full of beautiful stamps, dies, stencils and embossing folders.

There are also 12 new ink colors, available as Large ovals or mini cubes, we also have the reinkers available too.

I made so many cards for this release, I hope you're ready, maybe grab a drink and put your feet up.

My first card uses the In The Woodland StampDie and Simple colouring stencil, I used the Cross Weaves embossing folder, I added ink to the raised areas before running it through my die cut machine, this gives a letterpress effect.

My second card uses the In The Woodland StampDie and Simple colouring stencil, this time I added a background using the Mandala Builder stencil and Creative Edges Lace die.

Next up is the Tree Mix Die Set, this is such a cool set. Following on from the Leaf mix sets this is such a great addition. Here I teamed it up with the Globe Builder Die Set and the Circle Quilt Cover die.

Below are 3 cards created using the Jewel Tones crisp ink set.

I also created 3 cards using the Frozen Delights oval ink pads

I almost forgot to mention the new coloring books, I only got around to using the Exotic Blooms Marker book

I used me Altenew Artist Markers to colour the image and then spent an age fussy cutting it. I sat it against a background that I dry embossed using the Deco Wallpaper stencil, I added a sentiment from the Sentiment Strips stamp set

  27. Hello everyone, my name is Walter George I am so overwhelmed with joy all thanks to Dr. Wale spell. My Wife  left me for another man a few years back and I was very devastated because I never did anything wrong to her, I was left with my two kids and a job that pays little. I was almost giving up until I saw a testimony online about Dr. Wale and I decided to contact him. I explained my problem to him and he assured me I'll see a positive result after 24 hours, surprisingly my Wife came back the day after the spell begging me to forgive her and promised to never leave. My Wife has been back for 6 months now and we've never had any issues, am glad I didn't doubt Dr. Wale cause he sure can solve any problems with fast relief you can also contact him for help now WhatsApp/Text him: +1(978) 406-9575.


Thank you for stopping by, I appreciate your comments.
