Altenew August 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and welcome to Altenew’s July 2019 Stencil Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing brand new stencils. If you arrived here from the talented blog, Caly Person, 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 wooden gift bags:

Altenew Dot Art gift bag

Aren’t these wooden bags the cutest thing you’ve seen? When I saw them at my local craft store, I knew I want to create something with them. My sister came over and asked me to make two birthday gift bags for her coworkers. She bought them some jewelry and didn’t have a bag for them. I immediately pulled these wooden bags out of my stash.

Wonder Wycinanki stamp set

Stamping on them was a breeze, and the new Dot Art, and Wonderful Wycinanki worked perfectly. The dot-art design is light, airy, and very simple.

I also stamped the bottom of the wooden gift bag.

My sister was delighted with her packaging. I can’t wait to hear what her coworkers thought.

How to Create a Sprinkle Turnabout Gift Bag

Second Post for the today
If your looking for the Altenew Baby Mini Album, click here

Hello everyone!!  I’m here again showcasing the Sprinkles Turnabout Stamp set  and the Sprinkles Tag Set from Concord & 9th as apart of their 2nd Birthday Celebration!!

Lets take a look:

Concord & 9th Sprinkled with Love

Yes, I created a gift bag using the Sprinkles Turnabout stamp set and the Sprinkles Tag Set!

I love how this cute little bag turned out.

Concord & 9th Sprinkled with Love die


Here’s how I created it:

The tag:

  • Using the Sprinkles Turnabout stamp create the sprinkle pattern on a piece of white cardstock, with 4 different ink colors. Note: Follow the direction on the back of the package to line up the stamp perfectly to get the even pattern.
  • Stamp the sentiment in the center of the pattern with black ink.
  • Ink up the stamp again this time using Versamark ink and sprinkle black embossing power over the sentiment.
  • Heat set the powder for a raised intense sentiment.
  • Use the Sprinkles Tag die to cut out the tag.
  • Use We R Memory Keepers Power Punch to punch a hole at the top of the tag.

The bag:

  • Create the bag with We R Memory Keepers Box Punch Board.
  • Before folding the bag, use the small sprinkle stamp and Versamark Ink to create sprinkles all over the bag.
  • Sprinkle clear embossing powder on top and heat set.  This gives the image a translucent look.
  • Use ribbon to close the bag and attach the tag.  Once the bow is tied, run a piece of string under the bow and attach a couple charms.

Pretty amazing to see how a stamp set can transform a piece of cardstock.

So, what do you think?  Will you use the Sprinkles Turnabout stamp set and die to create a couple of gift bags?  Let me know.  I would love to hear from you.

Your Next Stamp DT Dare- Paint the town red

Exciting right!!  It sure is for me!!

The DT Dare Challenge this month is Paint the town red!!  The design team was asked to create a project using one of the new stamp sets from the February release.  I went with a new die for my project.

Take a look at my project:

Heart Gift bags (YNS)

To create this little gift bags, I die cut once for each bag.  The beauty of this die is you only need one piece of paper.

I die cut a piece of retired Stampin’ Up! DSP, folded the score lines added some Tombow Extreme Adhesive and assembly the bag.

I cut a piece of Tombow Fastener Tabs to create a closure for the bag.

I added the small white heart to the cover of the bag to finish it off.

I thought about stamping a sentiment but changed my mind.  They look nice just as they are.

What do you think?  Please let me know below.

Super simple and easy.

So tell me what you think of this challenge? I would love to know, let me know below!

Washi Tape Box

Hello, I’m here again with another project for you.  I can’t believe it, I’ve been on a roll with my posting.  I’m so happy about that.  I really have been putting some time aside each day dedicated to blogging and that has helped me stay on track.

Today’s box was made with a non-Stampin’ Up! tool, We R Memory Keepers Gift Bag Tool.  I couldn’t help myself.  I must say it took me five tries to get it right, but I finally got it.  It turned out beautifully to me.  Take a look.
