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.

Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s Watercolor Brush Markers Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the brand new Watercolor Brush Markers.  If you arrived here from the talented Norine Borys 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 watercolor scrapbook layout:

Watercolor Markers

I love the electric effect the watercolor created on this page. Super vibrant and fun. So was this trip to Universal Studios with my sister, daughter and nieces!

Here’s how this layout was created:

Gather Altenew Watercolor Markers and Altenew Large Watercolor Palette to get started.

Watercolor Markers

Before you can use the markers you have to remove the green ring that prevents the ink from reaching the brush before the are ready to be used.

Watercolor Markers

Squeeze the barrel to release the ink onto the palette.

Watercolor Markers

Use as many colors as you want.

Watercolor Markers

Spritz the palette with water so that the ink can move around when you apply it to paper.

Watercolor Markers

Turn the palette onto the paper and watch the ink move across the paper. Its amazing. I love this palette for this very reason. You can see how the ink moves and make adjustment if you want.

Watercolor Markers

Once you lift the palette, you will see some ink left on the palette that you can place somewhere else on the paper.

Watercolor Markers

Once the watercolor look is to your desire, let it dry. Since I wanted it to dry quickly, I used my heat tool to dry it.

Watercolor Markers

Now it time to add the photo and embellishments. Start with the title. I used the Reflection Scrapbook Puffy Stickers for this title.

 

Watercolor Markers

Type up the journaling and adhere it next to the photo. Use the Date Stamp to add the date multiple times. Splatter some black ink drops for contrast on the page.

Watercolor Markers

Add some thread and Reflection Scrapbook Collection Stickers under the photo.

Watercolor Markers

Pretty cool right?!

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s Watercolor 36 Pan Set Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing Altenew’s Watercolor 36 Pan Set!  If you arrived here from the talented Nicole Picadura 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!

This beautiful set of 36 vibrant watercolor half-pans coordinates perfectly with our line of ink.

They are stored in a convenient plastic case, designed with space for your brush (included) and a palette in the lid for mixing. Some of the case lids snap off upon opening and can easily snap back on after you are finished creating so you can store your mixed paints with the rest of the pan colors.

The set contains

  • 36 Artist Grade Watercolor Half-Pans

  • Plastic Case

  • Water Brush

Take a look at my Watercolor Traveler’s Notebook:

Altenew Watercolor Pan

I recently took a vacation with my daughter to Cuba and it was amazing. The country is a must see. Although the infrastructure is on the decline, you can still see the beauty in the country. We had a blast and learned a lot.

I used the watercolor pan to add color to my pages that would match the colors in the photos.

I love how the watercolors mix and move across the paper. The interesting thing is, I used linen paper and it did well with the watercolors.  I was surprised. The colors are vibrant and smooth.

Let’s take a look inside:

Altenew Watercolor Pan Set

The left photo is in Plaza de la Revolucion. The faces on the building are of Che Guevara and Camilo Cienfuegos, who are two important deceased heroes of the Cuban Revolution.

The right photo is of the port of Havana. So pretty!

Taxi anyone!!  LOL, I thought this taxi was the cutest thing ever. Three people in the back and the driver in the front. All aboard.

The photo on the left are locals waiting on the bus to come.

the photo on the right is my daughter walking in town.

Aetenew Watercolor

The photo on the left is a photo of a couple of houses downtown.

The photo on the right is a photo of a women and her children walking down the street.

Both photos were taken from the sky- Hello Havana!

I used different color watercolors on all of these pages. Perfect way to showcase all of the photos.

Technique Tuesday August 2018 Release Countdown Day 1

Hello everyone!!! Today I’m showcasing one stamp set from Technique Tuesday August 2018 Release!! I’m so excited about this release because its all about travel and as you are reading this post, I’m on a nice tropical vacation having a blast!! I will share as soon as I’m back!

Let’s take a look:

Sassy Vacation

I love making list of the items I need to pack because believe it or not, I will forget some of the most important items. That’s because I wait to the day before to pack. LOL, I know, I know. Why would I do that, who knows but I do. So, this list reminds me of everything I need.  My daughter laughs at me all the time.

I used Technique Tuesday Sassy Vacation Memories stamp step to decorate my planning page. The stamps are nice and small and perfect for my planner.

Here’s what I did:

  1. Stamp the two images and sentiment using Altenew Jet Black Ink.
  2. Color the images using Winsor & Newton Watercolors Pan Set.
  3. Add some stickers to the left of the page.
  4. Write down my list using Tombow Mono Drawing Pen.

Super easy and effective!

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.

What do you think?

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!!
