Altenew November 2018 Stencil/Ink Spray Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s November 2018 Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing all of the new stencil and ink sprays.  If you arrived here from the talented Laurie Willison 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 page:

Flowing Hearts Stencil

To create this page I used the new Flowing Hearts Stencil, the new Orange Cream Metallic Shimmer Ink Spray and the Cosmic Berry Metallic Shimmer Ink Spray.  They are a perfect fit with this photo.

Here’s how I created this scrapbook page:

Spray the two ink colors onto the large watercolor palette. Spray water and place the white cardstock on top of the palette.

Let dry.

Once the paper dries, use black ink and stencil the hearts in place.

Flowing Hearts Stencil

Cut away at a portion of the heart so that the photo can fit right up underneath it.

To add texture, add black thread under the photo and adhere it in place.

Flowing Hearts Stencil

Die cut the title using the Fine Alphabet Die Set and adhere the letters down.

Use Photoshop to type the journaling in colors that match the pages background.

Flowing Hearts Stencil

Add the wood veneer pieces to add another type of texture to the page.

Nice and easy.

Here are some peeks at some of the kits:

Life Pages Kit Goodies

 I used the Planner Pages Kit paper to create my card, take a look:

Here’s how I created this card:

  1. Cut the card base to 4.25 by 11, scored at 5.50.
  2. Cut the pattern paper to 4.25 by 5.50.
  3. Adhered the pattern paper to the card front using Tombow Mono Adhesive + Permanent.
  4. Using Lawn Fawn Stitched Heart Envelope Die cut the small note card out of Bristol cardstock.
  5. Use the Mini MISTI to stamp the sentiment from The Stamp Market You Are My Fave stamp set on the die cut notecard using Versafine Onyx Ink.
  6. Add 3M foam adhesive to the note card and adhere it to the center of the card front.

Nice, easy and a great way to use up pattern paper.

Ombre Stamping – Where Creativity Meets C9 Challenge

Third Post for today
If your looking for YNS Color and Sketch Challenge, click here
If your looking for CS Take It Make It Challenge, click here

Hello everyone!!  I’m super excited to be here today with the Where Creativity Meets C9 Blog Challenge Design Team!!  This is our very first challenge and we couldn’t be more happier to share our love for Concord and 9th!!

Exciting right!!  I think so!!

So without further-a-do, take a look at our challenge theme:

Take a look at my card:

love-in-my-heart

Are you wondering how my card ties in with the theme for this month.  I am an out of the box crafter.  I try not to go with the obvious. I’m celebrating LOVE!! Oh to love is a celebration, especially when you feel it in your heart!!

We celebrate the love of our children, the love of our parents, the love of our sibling and the love of our life!!  So I created a card that mirrors that celebratory feeling.

Here’s how:

  • Cut your cardbase to an A2 size card (4.25 x 5.50, scored at 5.50).
  • Using Concord and 9th Give Thanks stamp set, stamp the heart using Clearsnap Colorbox Doodlebug Pigment Petal Point Ink.
  • Stamp the heart three times, starting at the bottom with the lightest color, moving up to the darker color.
  • Using the Mini Misti, stamp the second line of the sentiment first with Clearsnap Colorbox Archival Wick Ink. Re-ink if needed.
  • Then stamp the love sentiment but inking it up with the same three colors, slightly overlapping each color.
  • Once the pigment ink dries, use a paint brush and some black ink to add ink splatters over the entire card.

Nice and simple!!

What do you think?  Please let know below.

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