Altenew November 2018 Stencil/Ink Spray Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s November 2018 Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing all of the new stencil and ink sprays.  If you arrived here from the talented Laurie Willison blog, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!

Take a look at my scrapbook page:

Flowing Hearts Stencil

To create this page I used the new Flowing Hearts Stencil, the new Orange Cream Metallic Shimmer Ink Spray and the Cosmic Berry Metallic Shimmer Ink Spray.  They are a perfect fit with this photo.

Here’s how I created this scrapbook page:

Spray the two ink colors onto the large watercolor palette. Spray water and place the white cardstock on top of the palette.

Let dry.

Once the paper dries, use black ink and stencil the hearts in place.

Flowing Hearts Stencil

Cut away at a portion of the heart so that the photo can fit right up underneath it.

To add texture, add black thread under the photo and adhere it in place.

Flowing Hearts Stencil

Die cut the title using the Fine Alphabet Die Set and adhere the letters down.

Use Photoshop to type the journaling in colors that match the pages background.

Flowing Hearts Stencil

Add the wood veneer pieces to add another type of texture to the page.

Nice and easy.

Clean and simple is my style and creating these proves that. These tags are from my nieces. They love bling!

Here’s how I created these watercolor Christmas tags:

  3. Our Family 3 x 4 Watercolor Journaling Cards
  4. Altenew Crisp Ink Permanent Black Ink

Use the die cutting machine and die cut three different size tags and style out of three different journaling cards.

Stamp three different sentiments on the tags.

Thread ribbon through each of them and and a charm using a small jump rink.

Happy Holiday

Super easy and a great way to use those journaling cards.

Let’s take a look:

Nicely done!

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Daffodil Release

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s Build-A-Flower: Daffodil Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the amazing daffodil flower.  If you arrived here from the talented Laura Jane blog, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!

Take a look at my envelope journal:

Daffodil’s are my favorite flower! They are so pretty and petite. Plus, they aren’t expensive!

Here’s how I created this envelope journal:

Gather 5 envelopes that you want to use.

Add adhesive to the outside flap of the envelope. Not the side that already has the tape.

Slide the flap inside one of the envelopes so that the edges meet.

It should look like this.

Continue to add envelopes.

Cut the flap off of the first envelop to create the book.

Decorate the book to your style. This stamp set has amazing sentiments. So encouraging.

Stamp each page and add journaling cards inside of each flap.

Add photos of daffodils thought out the book.

Add tabs and sentiments on the back page.
