Altenew NEW Sweet Moments Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)

Hello everybody.

Today I am delighted to be hopping along with host of talented crafty folk.  Between us, we will be bringing you lots of creative ideas for using Altenew's Sweet Moments release of stamps, dies and more!!  

Thank you to the lovely Erum Tasneem for directing you here.  Next up is my crafty friend 

Terri Kozsler.  Alternatively, you can begin this hopping journey directly from the Altenew Card Blog.  The full list of participants can be found below.

I have three projects to share with you today.

First up is this card which I made using the pretty new Happy Petals Stamps and Die set.

I used a stamp positioner to stamp the floral image using a pale ink.  I used a selection of my Altenew Artist Marker Pens to colour it.  Then I popped it back into my stamp positioner and this time I re-stamped the image with some clear Versamark, and then applied gold embossing power which I heat set.   I always use this method when heat embossing an image.   It is said that heat embossing an image first, and then colouring it can cause damage to the nibs of your alcohol marker pens, and I don't want to run the risk of ruining mine.

I used layers of different coloured card and also used my Grid Cover Die for the background, to add texture and dimension.

Next up is the sweet (excuse the pun!) All Sweet Things Stamps and Die Set.  I love this stamp set.  My ice cream sundae is made up of many different layers of stamps.  I think Altenew's attention to detail is second to none, and I just love the cute little cherry on the top.

I added a subtle background of diagonal stripes and for this I used my Altenew Stripe Builder Stencil from my crafty stash.

I finished with a scattering of coloured sequins for a little sparkle and texture.

For my final card I combined two new products from this Sweet Moments release.  I was soooo excited when I got the notification that Altenew were releasing a Hot Foil Plate.  This is because I love to add foiling to my card projects, and this was the perfect excuse.  I predict that the new Splatter Hot Foil Plate is going to prove to be very popular.  

I used it to foil my background card, and then I used my blending brush to apply a rainbow of colours.  I used a selection of Altenew Crisp Dye Inks:-

Maple Yellow
Deep Iris

I thought that the stamped and die-cut sentiment from the new Colourful Soul Stamp and Die Set was just perfect for this card.
