Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Iris & Watercolor Essential Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello, and welcome to Altenew Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing a brand stamp set and watercolor essentials. If you arrived here from the talented blog, Jaycee Gaspar, then you are on the right track. If this is your first stop, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog.

Take a look at my watercolor painting:

Watecolor Essential 12 pan set

I love the idea of watercoloring because you don’t have to be perfect with it. I’m allowed to play and have fun, and if a pretty painting comes out of it, great!

For this painting, I wanted to see how the colors mix but also practicing no water, a little water and a lot of water on my paper. It’s fun to watch the colors move from one circle to the next. It is also amazing to see what the colors look like once the painting drys.

For the second painting, I drew squares and circles to see how the water moves along those lines.

Altenew March 2020 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello, and welcome to Altenew 2nd March 2020 Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing brand stamps, dies, and stencils. If you arrived here from the talented blog, Terri Koszler, then you are on the right track. If this is your first stop, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog.

Take a look at my notepads with tear-away sheets:

Line Art Stamp Set

I used Altenew’s brand new Line Art Stamp Set. The sentiments in this stamp set are my favorite. They will brighten anyone’s day.

These notebooks are so cute and perfect for giving as gifts or for carrying in your bag. Working at the hospital, I’m always looking for paper to write on, and this notepad fits right in my pocket.

Line Art Stamp Set

I love that you can tear the sheets, so if I need to give someone quick information, the pages tear right out.

Line Art Stamp Set

Line Art Stamp Set

Creating these was easy. I used my Cricut Maker to cut out all of the pages. If you don’t have one of those, here are the measurements.

Cut the kraft cardstock to 3.25 inches x 11 inches.

Score at 4.25 inches, 5 inches, 10 inches, and 10.25 inches. Fold the score lines

Round all four corners using We R Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper Tool.

Use a hole punch to punch two holes 1/8 of an inch from the 5in scoreline.

Stamp the images and sentiment from the Line Art Stamp Set in black ink on the front of the book cover and flap.

Use the We R Memory Keeper Envelope Notcher to punch a notch at the bottom of the cover so that you can close it when not in use.

Cut the white cardstock 3 inches x 4.75 inches.

Use the holes in the kraft cardstock as a template to punch the holes int he white cardstock.

If you have a Cricut Maker, use the perforated tool to create the perforated lines on the white cardstock. If you don’t have a Cricut Maker or the perforated tool, use the We R Memory Keepers Dial Trimmer.

Put the notebook together with the twine and tie a bow. Close the cover, and you’re done.

February 2020 Stamp/Die/Stencil/Cutting May/Artist Watercolor 24 Pan Set Release Blog Hop

Hello, and welcome to Altenew February 2020 Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing brand new stamp sets, dies, stencils, a cutting mat, and artist watercolors. If you arrived here from the talented blog, The Hedgehog Hollow, then you are on the right track. If this is your first stop, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog.

Take a look at my planner pages:

alpaca

Documenting moments in your planner is a great way to keep all of your thoughts in one place. I just found out that one of my favorite stores is closing its doors in April.

The Alpaca stamp set is perfect for this particular memory. Lion Brand Yarn Shop in NYC is closing its doors after 11+ years. I’ve taken many classes there, bought supplies and lots of yarn. After I learned how to knit many years ago, Lion’s Brand was the shop to buy the best wool.

It’s sad to see them go, but I totally understand.

For these simple pages, I used the Alpaca stamp set.

Stamp the image four times using Altenew’s Obsidian Pigment Ink.

Then color the Alpaca’s bandana using the brand new Artist Watercolors.

Once the watercolor dried, stamp the sentiment using the brand new Ornamentals Bliss stamp set and the Hello and Hugs stamp set.

Journal a bit and done.

If you arrived here from the talented blog, Emily Midgett, then you are on the right track. If this is your first stop, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog.

Take a look at my gift packaging:

Altenew Hello and Hugs stamp set: finished product

I love making jewelry for others. It’s been a hobby of mine for a while now. When its time to give it to the recipients, I’m always looking for pretty packaging.

When I found this tin pan, I knew it would be perfect for the bracelets I was making. Once inside, the tin needed something else. I reached for Altenew’s Hello and Hugs Stamp Set to stamp on the cover.

Here’s how I stamped on the plastic:

For this tin, stamping on the plastic is pretty easy since you can open the tin and press on the inside of the tin.

Altenew Hello and Hugs stamp set: stamped on plastic

Place the stamp down on the table, then place the tin on top of the stamp and use your hands and press. Cover the entire area.

Remove the stamp to reveal the stamped image.

If the stamp didn’t stamp all the way through, line the stamp up again.

Re-ink the stamp and press harder in the areas that were missed.

Nicely done.
