Altenew December 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s December 2017 Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the all of the new Stamps and Dies.  If you’ve arrived here from the talented Yoonsun Hur 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 Embroidery Loop Layout:

I’m so excited about this type of layout.  I’ve never seen this done before. Totally a brilliant idea.  I saw it on Instagram and had to give it a try. Thank you Lena from @rozalina_s for the idea.

Here’s how I created this Embroidery Hoop Layout:

I used a piece of pattern paper from Altenew Reflection Scrapbook Kit to create the base of the embroidery hoop.

Note: You have to really play with the paper and the hoop because the paper is very thick so it takes time for it to form to the hoop.

Once the paper is secured in the hoop, trim off the excuse edges and fold them back behind the loop.

Stamp the sentiment using Altenew Everything About You stamp set on a piece of what cardstock. Trim and round the edges.

Print and trim the photo to a 3 x 3 size.

Add thread behind the sentiment and the photo. Adhere both of them down using foam tape.

Finish the statement by using Altenew’s Our Family Chipboard Alpha Stickers.

For more texture, add some of the Altenew Our Family Enamel dots.

So very pretty!!

Let’s take another look:

What is a blog hop without an amazing gift? Yayyy!!

Concord and 9th

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today showcasing the yet another stamp set from Concord & 9th August Release.

Let’s take a look:

concord & 9th happy balloon

I love how the balloons can be used as hot air balloons too.  This stamp set is so versatile and can be used all year round.

Here’s how I created this card:

Simple stamp the solid balloon using Altenew Deep Iris Ink.

Using the decorative balloon stamp and the basket stamp, stamp the image using Altenew Black Ink.

To finish the card off, stamp the sentiment right under the balloon.

Nice, clean and simple.  This card is so doable and the possibilities of making a couple of these cards are great.

Altenew Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone!!  I’m so excited to be here today.  This is my first Altenew Blog Hop as a design team member!!  Today we are showcasing all of the new stencils that are being released.  If you’ve arrived here from fabulous Lydia Evans, 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 layout:

altenew layered kaleidoscope stencil b

For my layout I used Altenew Layered Kaleidoscope B Stencil  paired with some of the supplies from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection Kit and some Ink Sprays to add interest to my page.

Altenew scrapbook layout

I used the Layered Kaleidoscope B stencil to add texture behind my photo using embossing paste. I took my time to only get the embossing past in the center design of the stencil only.

Note: for those of you who are new to this technique, I would suggest you mask of the areas that you do not want the past to go as to not make a mistake.

applying embossing paste

I did this twice so that the design would peak out from behind the photo.

Note: you could color the embossing paste using Altenew’s inks and/or sprays to really enhance the texture.  Like this:

coloring embossing paste with Altenew ink spray

I choose not to use it the color paste because it was to much yellow on the page but know that this is an option as well.

Let’s take a closer look:

layered scrapbook page using Altenew Reflection Scrapbook kit

For this page, I matted the photo on top of a piece of pattern paper from the Reflection Scrapbook Kit. Then I used the stickers and other embellishments from the kit to add the title and cute saying to the layout.  To finish the layout off, I used Altenew Ink Spray and a paintbrush to add ink splatters throughout the page.

So what do you think?  Will you use stencils on your layouts now?  I would love to hear what you think below!

What is a blog hop without an amazing gift? Yayyy!!
