Altenew May 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s May 2018 Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing all of the new Stamps and Dies.  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 8 x 8 scrapbook chipboard layout:

Main Squeeze

I love Altenew new Main Squeeze stamp set. It is perfect for my recent mishap at work. My coworker dropped a table. She asked another coworker and myself to help her pick it.  It’s a heavy steel table. While we were picking it up, the other coworker didn’t have a grip on it and let it go on my foot. Such luck, right?! The top of my left foot is fractured.

This stamp set reminds me to really look at the good in this painful situation.  I get to stay home and craft more, LOL!!!

Here’s how I created this chipboard layout:

Pick a patterned paper from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection Kit and adhere it to the 8 x 8 piece of We R Memory Keepers Cinch Chipboard using Altenew Glue Tape.

Stamp the medium lemon randomly on the patterned paper using Altenew Embossing Ink.

Translucent Pearl embossing powder

Stamp the one of the sentiments on the picture using Stazon Ink.

Main Squeeze

Sprinkle Altenew Translucent Pearl Embossing Powder over the stamped image, then heat set it.

Die cut Altenew Fine Alphabet Die Set out of black cardstock for the layout title.

Fine Alphabet die set

Using a ruler, adhere the title to the layout using Tombow Mono Liquid Glue.

Since the die set doesn’t come with punctuation marks, use the question mark from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection Puffy Stickers.

Randomly place thread on the layout and adhere the photo on top.

Add a couple of enamel dots for additional texture.


Use We R Memory Keepers Typecast to add journaling to the layout.

Main Squeeze

Adhere the journaling block to the layout and done!
