Altenew Rustic Charm Stamp/Die/Stencils/Embossing Folders/Washi Tape/Brush Marker/Fine Mister Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)

Hello and welcome to today's blog post. 

This Hop celebrates Altenew's new release and we will all be sharing lots of ideas for the products.  There are details of Free Gifts and also a fabulous Giveaway.   Be sure to hop along with us.    

Thank you to the super talented Sande Woodson for directing you hereNext up is the lovely Amy Hill.  Alternatively you can begin this hopping journey directly from the Altenew Card Blog.  The full list of blog hop participants can be found below.

I have five different projects to share with you today using different products from this latest release.

First up is this 5" x 7" greeting card.  I love love love layering floral stamp sets and this one doesn't disappoint.  I have used the beautiful Whirlwind Flowers Stamps and Die Bundle.

I created a top panel measuring 4-3/4" x 6-3/4".  I stamped and die-cut a selection of flowers and leaves and placed them on the left-hand edge, cutting away any excess overhang.  All the flowers are die cut and layered, creating dimension and texture.  For the sentiment I also used my Tall Alpha and coordinating Tall Alpha Lowercase Dies.

For the blue flowers I used Dew Drops, Caribbean Sky, Persian Blue and Chamomile Crisp Dye Inks, and for the pink flowers I used Baby Pink, Pinkalicious, Rubellite and Sunray.  The leaves were stamped in Limeade and Lime.   

For my next card I used the pretty new True Friends Bundle.  I opted for a lilac colour palette with gold accents.  I used a stamp positioner stamping my images first in a pale outline and colouring in each heart shaped leaf using my Altenew Artist Marker pens in R705, R823 and R926.  I then placed the panel back in my stamp positioner and re-stamped the outline in Versafine and gold embossing powder and then heat embossed. I added gold mirror card and white card layers before adhering to the card base.   

What I really like about the stamp set is that there are lots and lots of different, useful sentiment stamps, as well as several different pretty leafy motifs.

For this next project I used the super new Sunflower Bundle Botanical 3D Embossing Folder.   

The embossing folder is 6x6 inches, but for my card I did cut my embossed watercolour card piece down to 4-5/8" square.  I wanted a very subtle colour palette for this one and opted for soft pastel yellows, greens, blue and pale brown.   

I used my Altenew Watercolour Six Pan Set, creating a wash and then dropping in the colours to the big bold sunflowers, leaves and created a mottled blue sky background.

I heat embossed the sentiment in white.   This is from the new Floral Halo's Outline Stamp Set, which I have also used for my next project.

My husband really likes this card - he says it's very Van Goghesque !

I referred to the new Floral Halo stamp set above.  Well I used the Floral Halo Bundle of stamps and dies for this next card.

I will be very honest, in that I cannot remember exactly which of my die inks I use to stamp the outline flowers ! But I do remember the Altenew Marker Pens I used to colour in my floral images.  They were R303, R318, B802 and Y205.

I created the circular topper using stamps and dies from the set and used foam back adhesive pads on the reverse to create depth and dimension.  I also stamped and die-cut some flowers to place around the topper.

For my final card project, I have a festive Christmas card in a monotone colour palette of soft blues on a white watercolour card panel.  For this simple card I used the super cute new Bells and Bows Add-On Stamps and Die Bundle.   

I really do like the kind of 3D stamped effect you get using the two layering bell stamps.   I set the die-cut bells on a round topper, again made using the Floral Halos Bundle.  I created a soft blue watercolour wash for the background and added some light splatters and white irridescent sequins for a bit of Christmas sparkle.  I also added the small blue satin bow for more texture.  I stamped on the sentiment and also used my Tall Alpha and Tall Alpha Lowercase dies for the word "Season".

I love all the new products I used for these projects and I hope you like my ideas for using them.  I love the release because there are so many different types of products to choose from and I personally found it incredibly hard to choose which ones I was going to use for this hop.   I am very happy with my choices.   Altenew very kindly provided me with the new release products I have used today, but I am sure I will be making a few sneaky purchases to add to my growing stash.

I would love to know which of the products has caught your eye.
