Altenew May 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil/Ink/Enamel Pin Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and welcome to Altenew’s May 2019 Pin Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the new stamps, die, stencil, ink and enamel pins.  If you arrived here from the talented Vicky Papaioannou 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!

Let’s take a look at my gift boxes:

Ombre Alpha

With Mother’s Day around the corner and two of my coworkers celebrating their birthday, I thought it was fitting to use the new stamp set and pretty paper to create super cute gift boxes.

I used Altenew’s new Ombre Alpha stamp set and the beautiful Blushing Blooms Paper Pack to create these tiny gift boxes.

Here’s how to create these gift boxes:

Pick 4 different patterned papers from the Blushing Blooms Paper Pack.

Use the envelope punch board to create the box shape. The only need these ruler measurements:

Set the 6×6 paper at the 1.5 measurements and punch. Then slide the paper down to the 4 measurements and punch.

Now all you have to do is turn the paper 90 degrees and slide the paper to the first score line punch and score and slide down to the second score line and do the same thing.

Repeat for the remaining side.

Then you want to cut the scoreline on the side of the box that has the bigger tabs. Cut just to the first score lines and repeat on the other side.

Fold the box adhere with tape and your finished.

For the tag, use the Mini MISTI to stamp the letters and use a tag punch to punch them out. I used a retired Stampin’ Up! punch.

Let’s take a look at some close-ups:

These two boxes are for my coworkers. They celebrated their birthday last week and I wanted to surprise them with a small token to celebrate them.

Ombre Alpha

I metal stamped the heart and created a necklace for each of them. The gift tag is a great addition to this little box.

Ombre Alpha

Here’s what the boxes look like from the top. They are nice and compact, perfect for a nice small gift. Each has tissue paper in them.

The other two are for my sisters, for Mother’s Day!

So what do you think? Would you create cute boxes like this?

All of these bookmarks were created with Papertrey Ink Tag Sale: Quilted Die and stamped with Stazon Jet Black Ink.

For this bookmark I used the Imagine stamp set and Kuretake Gansai Tambi Pearl Color  #762 (the blue color).

For this bookmark I used Stardust Dancing stamp set and Kuretake Gansai Tambi Pearl Color  #751 and #740 (the green and yellow color)

For this tag I used the Confidence is Sexy Stamp and Kuretake Gansai Tambi Pearl Color #734 and #762 (the red and blue color).

National Scrapbooking Day 2016

Hello everyone!!!  Yesterday was National Scrapbooking Day 2016!!!  Isn’t it amazing that we have a day to do thing but to craft!!!  I love it.

I created a couple of cards to celebrate the day.  Tombow’s Ambassador Program collaborated with a couple of different papercrafting companies and asked us to create some wonderful projects.

My first set of cards were created with Fancy Pants Designs amazing new release Attwell pattern paper and embellishments.  I’m in love. This is my first time playing with this company’s products and I hooked.

Check them out:

Card 1:

Hey U

I simple used the small tags as the focal point on my card! I thought about adding something else to this card but decided against it because it’s pretty just the way it is!!

Card 2:

Hi Mom

Now this card is my ultimate favorite!!!  I just LOVE this pattern paper!!  It’s an amazing watercolor piece!  I had to make this a Mother’s Day card!! We give out flowers on Mother’s Day and this paper showcases such beautiful flowers.

I wish I could watercolor like that!!  I will have to give it a try.

I just love these little tags.  They are perfect for any Spring/Easter gift.

Here’s how I created them:

Tag 2 (RAH)

  • To create the shaker pocket, I used the fuse tool and the tag die to make sure the pocket fits neatly behind the outside die. For a full tutorial on how to do that please click here.
  • Once the pocket is ready, I added the clear Lily Flower Sequins and sealed it up.
  • All of the pieces were adhered together using 3M Foam tape.

  • The bunny and eggs were placed on the front of the bigger tag.
