Altenew August 2022 Marvelous Monthly Series Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in Total Prizes!)

Altenew Craft-A-Flower Open Peony die  kit handmade card
Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Open Peony Card

Hello and welcome! Every month, I look forward to Altenew’s Craft-A-Flower Subscription Release and this Open Peony may be my new favorite! This card is beautiful but it actually came together very quickly. My inspiration was a photograph of a Coral Charm Peony.

Ink Blending on Floral Die Cuts

Ink Blending  on Colored Cardstock Die Cuts to Add Shading:  Altenew Open Peony

I started by die cutting the floral elements from pale pink cardstock and then I ink blended Altenew’s Crisp Dye Inks on each piece. I concentrated the color around the edges. For layers #1 and #2, I used Coral Berry. Layer #3 was Coral Berry + Orange Cream. With layer #1, I added just a bit of ink and I used a heavier hand as I progressed to the top layers. Layer #4 (around the flower center) was Cotton Candy and Layer # 5 (top layer) was Crimson. I ink blended the last overlay that would go around the edges, but decided I liked the Peony without them.

For the leaves, I started with a medium green cardstock and then ink blended Mountain Pine Crisp Dye Ink around the edges. For the flower center I started with yellow cardstock and then added Warm Sunshine and Espresso ink blending.

Pink Die Cut Flower with Ink Blending:  Altenew Open Peony Subscription Kit

The Peony is so beautiful that I kept the background simple. The sentiment is from Paint-A-Flower Clematis and I added three New Day Enamel Dots.

Altenew has five wonderful monthly subscription kits that you can see HERE.

Altenew August 2022 Bold & Beautiful Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in Total Prizes!)

Altenew Precious Doodles Handmade Card.

Hello and welcome to Altenew’s August Blog Hop! I am so excited about the beautiful and fresh products that Altenew is releasing this month.

Altenew Precious Doodles Stamp and Die Bundle

I thought I would start with the Precious Doodles Bundle. When “doodles” is in the title, I know it is going to be a favorite of mine!

Precious Doodles is a happy little stamp layering set and I used Altenew Crisp Dye Inks: Cotton Candy + Coral Berry, Ocean Waves + Dusk, Parrot + Shadow Creek and Firefly + Green Fields. Once my Doodles were stamped, I embellished with Enamel Dots, die cut a frame, added the darling bee and die cut the sentiment.

Products Used on Card #1

Card #2 was quick and easy! I stamped and die cut four flowers, embellished with enamel dots and mounted on a simple background defined by washi tape.

Altenew Arch of Flowers Stamp, Stencil and Die Bundle

Altenew Arch of Flowers Card

The Arch of Flowers Bundle is such a fun and creative kit! For my first card, I used the stamp, coloring stencil and die. The die is gorgeous and very detailed which really adds to its beauty! The coloring stencil was very easy to line up and use and I love the effect. The stamp set also has great sentiments included, which is always a big plus! To finish the card I just added enamel dots to the flower centers.

Products Used on Card #1:

I also wanted to make a quick casual hello card with the stamp and coloring stencil. I angled the stamp and then quickly colored in the sunny little flower scene. Don’t the flowers look like they are reaching for the sun?

Spellbinders | Embossing Folder of The Month | August 2022 | Intertwined Lattice

Spellbinders August Embossing Folder of The Month Kit + Baby Card.
Intertwined Lattice 3D Embossing Folder

Blue Card for a Baby Shower

I LOVE the Spellbinders August Embossing Folder of the Month! It is called Intertwined Lattice, is very versatile and will work with so many designs. For my baby card, I “debossed” my panel which means the design is pressed below the paper’s surface. I then paired my debossed panel with one of my new favorites: Balloon Party Animal (S3-450). The blue print background is from Spellbinders Cheerful Occasions Paper Pad and I used Craft Foam under the top panel for dimension.

I think this is an adorable baby card.

Hello You Strawberry Card

Spellbinders Intertwined Lattice 3D Embossing Folder.

For my second card, I used the “embossed” side of the panel. Embossing means the design is raised above the panel. The August embossing folder is beautiful embossed (below) and debossed (card #1 above)

Spellbinders August 2022 Card Kits:  Embossing Folder of the Month, Strawberry Patch Large Die of the Month and Outlined Sentiments Small Die of the Month.

I love the texture that the embossing adds to cards. For this card I used three of Spellbinders August 2022 Subscription Kits: Large Die of the Month, Small Die of the Month and Embossing Folder of the Month. The sentiment was die-cut from Brushed Gold Cardstock and I love the bit of glow it adds to the card.

Spellbinders Small Die of the Month | August 2022 | Outlined Sentiments

Spellbinders August 2022 Small Die of the Month - Outlined Sentiments - die cut sentiment card.

Outlined Sentiments

I am always looking for new fresh interesting sentiments so I was so excited to see this month’s Spellbinders Small Die of the Month Kit! Besides the “for” and “you” I used above, the kit includes Cheers (see card below), Thanks, Congrats and Hello (see card below) plus coordinating shadow dies that line up perfectly! There is also a cute flower, greenery and leaves in the kit.

Handmade card with striped background in pink, white, aqua, blue and tan kraft paper cardstock.
For You Handmade Card

The die cuts are beautifully delicate so I used an extra metal shim when die-cutting the sentiments and they cut great. Before die cutting, I attached adhessive sheets to the cardstock and this made sentiment placement so easy!

Handmade card with background made of strips of colored cardstock.

For my background, I used my paper trimmer to cut strips of paper in varying widths. I didn’t measure, I just eyeballed it. I started with Waterfall, Pink Sand, Watermelon Fusion (retired), white and Cosmic Sky. It didn’t look quite right so I added Kraft cardstock and then I was happy with my color scheme. I think it is bright and cheerful with a bit of a beach vibe. I trimmed my background down to 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ and mounted on an A2 base with kraft foam.

I die cut my sentiments and shadows, added three strawberry blossoms from the August Large Die of the Month Kit, placed enamel dots on the flower centers and then adhered to the background with foam tape.

I am happy with this cheery little card.

Delicate die cut sentiments with sentiment shadows.

Hello You Card

For my second card, I die cut my two sentimenst from Brush Gold cardstock and I love the simple elegance it adds.

I used three of Spellbinders August 2022 Subscription Kits on this card: Large Die of the Month, Small Die of the Month and Embossing Folder of the Month.

Cheers Card with Die Cut Strawberries

My last card is a bit more clean and simple, but I love the effect of the delicate die cut sentiment.

Spellbinders "Cheers" Outlined die cut Sentiment: August 2022 Small Die of the Month Strawberry Card.

With Taylored Expressions Square Window Masking Stencil, I ink blended Grass Fields, Warm Sunshine and Peacock Feathers for my background. Using the August 2022 Large Die of the Month kit, I selected and die cut cardstock scraps so that each of the three berries would be a different shade of red. I die cut the Cheers sentiment (Spellbinder’s August 2022 Small Die of the Month Kit) from metallic black cardstock. I first adhered adhessive paper to the back of the cardstock and then die cut the sentiment which made placement so easy.

I think these sentiment dies are the perfect finishing touch for cards. Thanks for stopping by!

Spellbinders Large Die of the Month Kit | August 2022 | Strawberry Patch

Spellbinders August 2022 Large Die of the Month Strawberry Patch Kit handmade card.

Die Cut Strawberry Themed Cards

The Spellbinders August 2022 Large Die of the Month Strawberry Patch kit is just perfect for summer! I made three cards and I can’t decide which I like best. The first one I made for my daughter and her husband to go with a housewarming gift. Doesn’t the strawberry plant look like it’s dancing? I think it is so lively and cheerful!

The dies are big and beautiful so my first card is 4 1/4″ x 6 1/2″. I wanted variations in my reds and greens so I dove into my paper scrap stash and pulled out some pretty cardstock leftovers. The basket is die cut from Brush Gold Cardstock.

Don’t you just love the pretty little strawberry blossoms? I know I will be using these on future cards because they are so fresh and happy.

Strawberry Trio Card

The die cut strawberries are so animated and joyful that I thought it would be fun to spotlight three berries with blooms on card #2. Once again, I die cut the strawberries with Spellbinders August 2022 Large Die of the Month Kit. I used Taylored Expressions Square Window Masking Stencil and then blended Grass Fields, Warm Sunshine and Peacock Feathers for my background. I again used cardstock scraps so that each of the three berries would be a different shade of red.

Spellbinders August 2022 Strawberry Patch Large Die of the Month Kit.

The “Cheers” sentiment is from Spellbinders August Small Die of the Month kit, which is filled with great delicate sentiment dies and coordinating sentiment shadows. Before die cutting, I attached adhessive sheets to the cardstock which made sentiment placement so easy!

For my final card, I combined three August 2022 Spellbinders Kits: Large Die of the Month, Small Die of the Month (sentiments) and Embossing Folder of the Month. I think they all work so well together.

Handmade card featuring the August 2022 Large Die of the Month, Small Die of the Month and Embossing Folder of the Month.

I die cut the two sentiments from Brush Gold Cardstock. Prior to die-cutting, I attached adhessive sheets to the cardstock and this made sentiment placement so easy! I also matted the embossed panel with red patterned paper.

Cheerful handmade card with die cut strawberries.

Altenew Celebrating Watercolors Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in Total Prizes!

 Framed watercolor Poppy from Altenew's Watercolor Coloring Book

Altenew’s 36 Pan Watercolor Set

Hello friends! Did you know it is World Watercolor Month? To celebrate, Altenew is hosting a grand Blog Hop with LOTS of prizes and inspiration.

I LOVE Altenew’s watercolor products and I used them on my framed project. I started with the Poppy from Altenew’s Coloring Book and I painted it with the 36 Pan Set and Artists Brushes.

Watercolor Poppy for World Watercolor Month using the Altenew 36 Pan Set

The coloring book is such a great idea!  There are 12 designs…24 printed pages on good quality watercolor paper.  Each design has a black outline and a “no-line” outline.  I am going on vacation soon and this coloring book will be making the trip as it is so packable. Grab the book, brushes and watercolors and I am set for hours of creating.  I also think this would make a great gift!  

I went slow while I painted and added layer upon layer of color.  For me, this is the secret to watercolor painting.  Add color and blend with a damp brush with clean water, let dry and repeat. The quality of the paper in the coloring book allowed me to add lots of layers without any worry about the paper breaking down.

This no-line Poppy was loads of fun to paint!  I didn’t mix the paints but used the color right out of the pans.  Lovely and feminine.  I did add a few accents to the flower’s center with a black pen and white gel pen.

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

Altenew Fantasy Emblem 3D Embossing Folder

Altenew's Fantasy Emblem 3D Embossing Folder done in  faux metallic using an Antique Bronze Distress Crayon.

Hello and thanks for stopping by! Altenew just released a lovely collection of 3D Embossing Folders as part of their Summer Love Collection, and I made 3 very different projects. I started by making a very masculine card using the Fantasy Emblem 3D Embossing Folder. My inspiration was an antique metal medallion.

My Process:

  • I started by embossing a piece of black cardstock with the Fantasy Emblem 3D Embossing Folder.
  • Next I tinted white pigment ink with Ocean Waves Crisp Dye Ink. On my craft mat, I dabbed the pigment ink and then Ocean Waves Crisp Dye Ink next to the white and then I mixed the two together. I blended this all over the embossed panel to “age” the cardstock.
  • I colored Antique Bronze Distress Crayon on the raised areas and then blended with my finger.
  • I die cut my sentiment (Script Words Die) from kraft card stock and then attached my panel to a kraft base.

This card was quick and easy to make but looks so rich in person.

Altenew Playful Circles 3D Embossing Folder

Altenew Playful Circles 3D Embossing Folder + Craft A Flower Garden Rose + Handmade Card

This embossing folder is definitely a new favorite that will work with so many papercrafting projects! Today, I combined Altenew’s Craft-A-Flower: Garden Rose with the very versatile Playful Circles 3D Embossing Folder. The embossing folder adds loads of texture and interest to the card. The embossed panel is very pretty on both sides….depressed and impressed.

Products Used:

Altenew Playful Circles 3 D Embossing Folder + Enchanting Washes designer paper pack.

Altenew Flower Vines 3D Embossing Folder

A "Shabby Chic" handmade card + Altenew's Flower Vines 3D Embossing Folder.

For my last card I went for a whimsical Shabby Chic look.

Spellbinders Stitchmas Christmas

Spellbinders "Stitchmas Christmas" Stitched Ornament card.

Spellbinders Stitched Ornament Die (S4-1231)

Welcome back friends! I am excited to share a gorgeous stitched ornament die that Spellbinders just released as part of their Stitchmas Christmas line. I made an elegant Christmas Ornament Card in gold and spruce green. The stitching was easy and I spent a relaxing hour or so adding the gold thread details.

Elegant die cut and stitched Christmas Card in Green and Gold.

I started by cutting the ornament from Blue Spruce cardstock. Then I cut the ornament background, greenery and accents from Brush Gold Cardstock. Using Gold Floss, I stitched the embroidered details and then assembled my ornament. The background is a mat of Brush Gold Cardstock and a designer paper from the Cheerful Occasions pad. I love the variety and beauty of this pack!

Spellbinders Winter Garden Collection

Spellbinders Letterbox Die Kit (S4-1209) handmade card.

Letterbox Die Kit (S4-1209)

Christmas in July? For all of you ready to start working on your holiday cards, Spellbinders has some fresh new die sets that are part of their gorgeous new Winter Garden Collection by Susan Tierney-Cockburn. The Letter Box is so versatile….you can use the mailbox by itself….add Christamas gifts or letters….or turn it into a birthday card by changing the colors and sentiment. I added fun little details from two other Spellbinders kits.

To start this card, I ink blended the blue panel on 80 lb. card stock, which I think embosses more crisply. I then embossed the background for added interest. I die cut all my pieces, “aged” the white post with a distress crayon and added a few white accents to the mail box with a gel pen. I then assembled my card with glue and foam tape.

Products Used to Create This Card:

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

Altenew July 2022 Craft Your Life Always Sunshine Project Kit homemade card.
Altenew July 2022 Craft Your Life:
Always Sunshine Project Kit

Altenew just released their July Subscription Kits and they are wonderful! For this blog post, I created two projects using the Craft Your Life Project Kit: Always Sunshine and Craft A Flower: Garden Rose.

To celebrate the July Subscription Kits, Altenew is hosting a Blog Hop with loads of prizes and fresh inspriation so come hop with us! You probably came from Emily Midgett and her gorgeous cards.

Craft Your Life: Always Sunshine Kit

If you want to make a showy “Wow” project, you’ll want to try the July Craft Your Life kit. The flowers, leaves and vines are gorgeous! The Craft Your Life Project Kit comes with a 6 x 8 Stamp set and its coordinating Die Set, Stencil, and Embossing Folder. You will want to buy the kit becuase the items included in this kit are not sold separately.

I started by diecutting a template for my stamp. The main stamp is large and to ensure I had it positioned correctely, so it would die cut well, I set the stamp inside the template in my Misti. This little extra step makes for a much better finished project. Next, I stamped the outline with pigment ink and let it dry. I then used the coloring stencils to ink blend the flowers and leaves. I wanted a bit of fresh white so I didn’t use every stencil layer. I just love the look of coloring with stencils. To finish, I used the layering stamps to add detail and then die cut. This is a big stamp, so using foam tape, I attached the die cut to a 5″ x 6 1/2″ panel. The stamp is so beautiful that I kept the rest of the card clean and simple.

Altenew July 2022 Craft-A-Flower: Garden Roses

Altenew’s Craft-A-Flower kits are favorites that I use frequently. This month kit has roses, which are a classic. And, I LOVE the leaves in this month’s kit! I know I will be pulling the leaf dies out to use with future die kits.

I die cut my roses from pinks from two of Altenew’s designer paper packs and the background is from a just released 3D Embossing Folder. The “keyholes” make lining up the die-cut layers so easy!
