Altenew July 2022 Summer Love Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in Total Prizes!)











Hi there!

 

Thanks for stopping by! You must be here from Tenia Nelson.

Today I’m going to share some cards featuring the new embossing folder from the Sommer Love Collection.

 

My first card I created with the Geo Triangles Embossing Folder. And the best thing about this embossing folder is, that there are also coloring stencils available. I started to emboss some white cardstock and then colored it with the stencil with different shades of green.




I added a geometric piece who matches the pattern from the embossing folder and stamped my sentiment there. Then I used some flowers from the Wonderland Stamp set I had actually left over from another project. I thought these flowers fit perfect, because they’re tall and it doesn’t distract too much from the background.



 


                                              ----------


The next card I made with the Tiled Chevron Embossing folder. I love embossing folders with geometric forms. You can create so much texture, add some flowers and you get a beautiful quick card.

For my card I made some ink smooshing with rose ink. Then I embossed it with the embossing folder. 





Then I added a white stripe for my sentiment. As focal point I stamped a flower from the Cone Flower Stamp Set with pool colors. I love the combination of rose and pool colors. Somehow it looked a little bit too naked to me.. so, I added some black stripes with cardstock on both sides.


                                  ---------- 

 

And my last card I created with the Sunshine Blossoms Embossing folder. I added ink with a brayer direct on the embossing folder and then run it through my die cut machine. I think the flowers stand out even more like that. I messed up another example, but I liked the leaves.





So, I fussy cut them out and added them to my card. Then I stamped a sentiment, added embellishment and splatters (I should have covered the flower) and that’s it.

 

Hope you could find some inspiration and now hop on to Nathalie DeSousa.

Altenew July 2022 Marvelous Monthly Series Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)

 



Hi there!

 

Thanks for stopping by. You must be here from Caly Person. Otherwise you can go back to the Altenew Blog or grab another coffee and just have fun hopping around.😉


Today I’m going to show you some cards I created with all the great products which came out with the Marvelous Monthly July Series. I love all of them.

 




My first card I created using the Build-A- Garden Tulips and Friends Stamp & Stencil Set. This is actually one of my favorites because I love to color flowers with stencils. This is so easy and you just receive amazing results. And I don’t know about you, but I have a lot of different inks and so I can use them all.




Anyway, here is my card. I stamp the image with black ink and embossed it clear. Then I colored the tulips by using the stencil, the stamp and finally I added also I little bit of watercolor. 





I created a background with watercolor too. Then finally I added some splatter and a sentiment from the same stamp set.

 


                                            ----------



For my second card I wanted to achieve a completely different look with the same stamp set. So, I stamped the flowers in blue repetitive on white cardstock. Then I just added one layer of blue with the stencil. The gaps between I have filled with some lovely dots from the Scalloped Ornaments Stamp Set. I think it looks I little bit like Chinese porcelain. 






The sentiment from the Monsteras & Quotes Stamp set I stamped on white card stock, which I die cut with one of the Geometric Dies.

I messed up on some points of the card with blue.. 😅 But I think, that’s ok.. So you can really see its handmade and I mean, nobody is perfect.



                                            ----------



On my next card I used the Always Sunshine Stamp from the Craft Your Life Kit. I colored the Image with the stencil and stamps as it is explained in the layering guide. Then I made some partial die cutting with the coordinating die and just a simple circle die.






I actually messed up the big flower (again) so this was a good opportunity to add some dimension. I stamped just the flower again and fussy cut it out. Then I glued it on top with some foam tape.




The background I created with the Watercolor Stripes Stencil and translucent paste which I colored with some yellow ink.



----------


And my final card I created with the Craft A Flower Garden Rose Layering Die Set. I Die Cut all the pieces and colored them with ink and a blending brush. My background I made just some blue lines with a pen and added a stripe of gold embossing. 




Then I assembled everything together on the card. It’s easy to line up with the arrow in the middle.





Then I stamped happy birthday from the Birthday Builder Stamp Set and embossed it also with gold. And finally added some Satin White Sequins.



That’s it..  Hope you found something for your inspiration.

 

So now hop on to Virginia Lu and check out her fantastic cards she created!

 

Thank you!

AECP - Scene Building

 

Hello everyone!

 

I finally finished my last course of the AECP Level 1 which is Scene Building. So here is my card I created:

 



I wanted to create like a field of flowers, with the sunset behind.

So I started to blend a background with yellows and some pastel colors.

 

Then I stamped some flowers from the Wonderland Stamp Set and colored them by using the masking stencil. Then I die cut them with the coordinating dies. 

 

To create a scene, I cut a frame from black card stock and then assembled the flowers in this frame. I tried to add some half flowers on each side of the frame, so it looks as if there are many, many flowers more..  






Then I stamped a sentiment from the German Label Love Stamp Set which means – get well soon. 


To finish the card, I added some glitter with a glitter pen on the flowers, I mean, with glitter you really get well sooner😅

Altenew July 2022 Summer Sunshine Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)



Hi there!

 

If you're coming from Penny Pynnonen Blog, you're on the right track. Otherwise, just have fun or go back to the Altenew Blog.


This is my first blog hop and I’m soo excited to be part of it. So, these are the cards I created with all the new and fabulous new products of the  Summer Sunshine Collection.



The first card I created with the Captivating Bloom Stamp Set. I stamp the flowers on a white card base and colored them with the coordinating stencil. I don’t know about you but I love to color withs stencils. It’s so easy and you get to most beautiful results.





I added texture with the Dotted Scales Debossing Cover Die. Then I stamped my sentiment with a little bit of ombree effect with the same inks I use to color the flowers.





The second card I have also made with the Captivating Bloom Stamp set. This time I have stamped the flowers on a green paper and embossed with rose embossing powder. Then I colored them with the stencil by using pigment ink. 






The sentiment is from the Monsteras and Quotes Stamp Set. I glued to the card panel on a metallic rose cardstock. And to finish everything some sparkling stones. With all the metallic elements its somehow looks elegant.







This card features the Monsteras and Quotes Stamp Set. With all the greenery I feel like in a tropical garden. I started to cut out the Burlap Texture and used it as a stencil on withe cardstock. Then I stamped, colored and die cut the beautiful leaves. 





I really wanted that feeling of a beach bar, so I added some flowers from the Captivating Bloom Stamp Set. I colored them and fussy cut them out. I stamped one of the great sentiments (there are tons in this set and it was so difficult to decide which one😅) on black cardstock and embossed it in withe. I cut this out with one of the Geometric Frame Die Set.






On the next card I used the Mosaic Diamond Stamp Set. This was one of my favorites from this release. It creates great backgrounds and, on my cards, it gives even a little bit of texture.







I stamped half of my card in yellow and added then a flower from the Wild Flora Stamp set. This flower is so tall that it perfectly divides the card in two parts. 

The sentiment was also on the Mosaic Diamonds Stamp Set. Such a great message for all those who sometimes struggle when something is not that perfect, as we want it to be.








And also, my last card features the Mosaic Diamond Stamp Set. This time I stamped it on the whole card in a nice minty color. Then cut out some white circles to create a little frame.





Then I added some flowers from the Pen Sketched Stamp Set. The sentiment is from the Magnolia Ballerina Stamp Set. I stamped it with the same mint color. 








That’s all from my side today😊
