Altenew February 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone and welcome to Altenew’s February 2019 Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing all of the new stamps, dies, and stencils.  If you arrived here from the talented Seeka 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 wooden heart scrapbook panel:

Trendy Circles

I love how this wooden panel turned out. I used Altenew Trendy Circles, Better Together and the roller stamp to decorate this heart.

I created this panel for my daughter because on the day of this photo she was quite upset about her hair. It didn’t turn out how she wanted it and was afraid that her peers would not like it. It looked beautiful to me. She did an amazing job.

So I wanted to capture the moment and remind her that different is beautiful. I do not want her to worry about what others think. If she likes who she is and how she looks, that is all that matters.

Let’s take a closer look:

Trendy Circles

To create this panel randomly stamp the circles from the Trendy Circles stamp set using Stazon Ink onto the wooden panel.

Resize the image and print it in color.

Use We R Memory Keeper 3 Way Corner Punch to round all four corners

Stamp the sentiment from Better Together stamp set onto the image using Stazon Ink.

Better Together

Adhere black thread under the photo and place on the center of the wooden panel.

Stamp a sentiment in the upper right hand corner and the date of the event, using the roller stamp, on the side of the left side of the heart.

Nicely done. Don’t you think?

Let’s take another look:

{Clean and Simple} – Fit

Second Post for today
If your looking for Technique Tuesday’s post, click here

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

Take a look at my card:

For this week’s cue card I used the new Love You to Pieces Clear stamp set and Pieces of My Heart Crafting Die from Technique Tuesday!!  Yes, they are brand new and will be released on March 1st.

This set is so fitting for our cue card.  When you die cut the heart, it appears to be in pieces but the pieces are attached at the corners.  They just need a small pair of scissors to snap those corners to break the pieces apart.  Which is what I did above.

I love how this card turned out.  I also created another card, similar in style, using this same set, take a look here.

Super simple and easy.

Technique Tuesday March 2018 Release Countdown Day 1

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today for the first time as a Technique Tuesday Design Team Member!! I’m super excited because I’ve loved Technique Tuesday for a long time, so to be apart of the team is amazing.

 

Today we are showcasing Technique Tuesday March 2018 Release!  You are going melt into pieces when you see what we have in store for you! So lets get right to it!

Let’s take a look:

Pieces of My Heart Crafting Die

Now tell my you heart didn’t just melt. That Pieces of My Heart Crafting Die is just the cutest!! Guess what, you can pair it with the Love You to Pieces Clear Stamp Set.

The puzzle pieces are attached just at the corners but with a pair of snips the can come apart for versatility. The stamp set is amazing because of the different font styles in each sentiment. I love the bold paired with the smaller lettering.

Here’s how this card was created:

I created a watercolor piece using Prima Watercolor Confections Odyssey set and Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper. The colors are delicious!

Once the watercolor piece dries, use a die cutting machine to die cut the Pieces of My Heart Crafting Die.

Position the heart die where you want it on the 4×4 card front, then stamp the sentiment right next to the die cut in the bottom right corner.

Add Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals behind the different pieces and adhere the heart to the card front.

Use We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board to round the top corners of the card.

Super clean and simple!!

Embossing – Where Creativity Meets C9

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with the Where Creativity Meets C9 Blog Challenge Design Team!! Our challenge this month is Embossing!

Take a look at my card:

For this card I use the heart die from Concord and 9th Heartstrings Die to create an embossed heart on the card front. I have to confess, when I ran the paper through the Big Shot, I didn’t expect the paper to ruffle up.

Once I took the paper off of the cutting plate, I started to get upset.  Thinking I had to start over, I took a second look at the paper. I actually loved the way the ruffles looked on the card front. The paper looks handmade so I decided to go with it.

So I decided to watercolor inside the heart.  Once that dried I added the word kind from Concord and 9th Kind Card Frame Add on Die across the heart.

To finish the card off, I used Tonic Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss to add shimmer to the watercolor and the sentiment and some New Day Card Kit Enamel Dots.

Take a look:

I love how this card turned out!! What do you think?  Please let know below.

I can’t wait to see how you interpret our challenge theme this month.

For this week’s cue card I used Winnie and Walters From the Bottom of My Heart stamp set that I received as a gift for placing an order with them.  Super cute stamp set.

To create this card:

I stamped the heart using Colorbox Pinkolicious Archival Dye Ink in the center of the card base. Nothing to it!!

I’m telling you I really can’t get enough of these Happy Hues notecards.  They add so much to each and everyone of my card designs!! I paired this notecard with the Heartstrings Bundle stamp set and dies.

Here’s how I created this card in two easy steps:

  1. Die cut the front of the card using the heart die cut using the Big Shot.
  2. Use the Mini Misti tool to stamp the sentiment in the center of the heart.

Nice and easy.
