Altenew January 2018 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s January 2018 Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the all of the new Dies.  If you’ve arrived here from the talented Galina Filippenko 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 Layout:

Alpha Die

Back in December, I went to a Whole Food for lunch during a workshop I participated in Brooklyn.  It was the closest place to eat so why not.  I first stopped at the salad bar but thought it was to cold outside to eat salad.  I notice they had a soup bar so I shared out a bowl of chicken noodle soup.  I wan’t happy about it but there wasn’t anything I could do until I saw the Pop-Up Ramon Bar.

Right away I thought yes, this is going to be so good.  I looked at the price and saw that the veggie soup was $8.  Great, I can swing that.  I asked for extra bean spouts and onions.  The chief fixed me a nice soup.  He handed me the soup and I walked to the counter.

The lady said $33.96, I almost went to the bathroom on myself.  WHAT did you say? $33.96 for a soup? I played it cool and pulled out my credit card and paid for this meal that should’ve cost me no more then $10.

Despite the huge price tag, this meal was good. LOL!!!

For this layout, I’m using the new Simple Alpha Die!!  The shape of these letters are perfect for scrapbooking.  They create an amazing title which is what I created above.

Here’s how I created this Scrapbook Layout:

I used Altenew’s Mini Blossom Die and a piece of scrapbook paper from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection to cut out all of the letters for the title.

Alpha Die

I used my We R Memory Keepers Typewriter to type the smaller title.

I secured each letter to the base page with foam tape so that they are raised higher then the photos.

Super easy and fun!!

This week’s cue card:

Take a look at my card:

For this card, I just die cut the square card out using Papertrey Ink Noted: Scalloped Square Die out of Bazzill cardstock that was in the August Gossamer Blue Scrapbook Kit.

I used Taylored Expression Puff Alpha stamp set to stamp the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner of the card using Altenew Black Ink.

Nice, simple and easy.  What do you think?

Using Deco Foil and Die Cuts

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with a super easy card using Deco Foil and Die Cuts!

While I was at Creativiation in January, my friends from Thermoweb gave me a couple of the new Watercolor Deco Foil!! I have to say they are so pretty!! I haven’t had a chance to play with them until now.

Take a look at a picture I posted on Instagram when I came back:

Aren’t these colors pretty?  Here are the names:

  1. Deco Foil Transfer Sheets Amber Watercolor
  2. Deco Foil Transfer Sheets Summer Rainbow Watercolor
  3. Deco Foil Transfer Sheets Amethyst Watercolor
  4. Deco Foil Transfer Sheets Lapis Watercolor
  5. Deco Foil Transfer Sheets Emerald Watercolor

Since its St. Patrick’s Day, I figured today is the best time to use the Emerald Watercolor Deco Foil!

Take a look at my card:

I love the watercolor effect this foil gives off.

Here is how I created this card:

  1. I measured the Simon Says Stamp Lucky To Know You die so that I could measure the Deco Foil Peel n Stick Toner Sheets and theEmerald Watercolor Deco Foil.
  2. I placed the Emerald Watercolor Deco Foil on top of the Deco Foil Peel n Stick Toner Sheet and ran it through my laminator.
  3. Once the sheet comes out of the laminator, die cut the foil sheet.
  4. Since the toner sheet is a peal and stick, all you have to do is adhere it to the black cardstock.

Take a closer look:

Nice and easy. Using Deco Foil and Die Cuts are a fun way to make a quick card in no time.

What do you think?  I would love to hear from you below!

What’s even better is a SALE!!!

Thermoweb is celebrating National Craft Month and they are doing a Ultimate Deco Foil Giveaway!!

Plus you get 15% off and free shipping all month long on orders $15.00 or more.

Now that is awesome!!  Its time to shock up on all of your favorite Deco Foil products!

I’m going to pick up the Deco Foil Transfer Gel!  I was this gel in action at Creativation.  Its a must have.

{Clean and Simple} CASology – Cut

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card:

week-232-cut

Take a look at my card:

let-it-snow-cas

For this week’s cue card I used STAMPlorations Let It Snow Die as my focal point. I die cut it out of Concord and 9th Happy Hue Note Cards three times.  Then I adhered them together.

Before adhering the die cut to the card front, I  added some snowflakes with Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow die and Ranger Ink Texture Paste.

Once the paste dried, the sentiment was adhered.

What do you think?
