Hello everyone and Welcome to the Altenew November 2018 Release Blog Hop! I’m so excited to join this hop!

You should have arrived from Enza Gudor. If not, you can start from the beginning at Altenew Card Blog.

Release

As always, there are lots of great products to pick from – new stamp sets, coordinating dies, new ink colors and stickers! There are some absolute Must-Haves here!

Check out the entire new release here! I’d love to know what you’ve got your eyes on!

Projects

I have not 2, not 5, and even not 10, but 14 cards for you! So, this post is very picture heavy as I was very inspired by the beautiful products, I couldn’t help myself! 🙂

Also, I filmed a video for you showing all the cards and how to create some of them from start to finish. I’m hoping you’ll enjoy it!

Engraved Flowers Stamp & Die Bundle

Let’s start with Engraved Flowers stamp and die bundle. How gorgeous are these flowers? I created three cards with different looks for you. Which one do you like the most?

The first card is a simple card. I stamped the image onto watercolor paper and die-cut it using coordinating dies. I then watercolored the flower and leaves with Zig art&graphic markers. Colors I used: peacock blue, cobalt blue, light brown, mid yellow. I added a sentiment, white embossed on blueberry cardstock, several Midnight Blue Crystals.

For the second dimensional floral card, I went with these colors ( Zig art&graphic markers ): pink, purple, orange, light brown, mid yellow, light gray, gray, peacock blue. I stamped flowers and leaves onto watercolor paper and die-cut it using coordinating dies.

Next, I added a few black paint splatters on the card panel. Once the splatter was dry, I arranged my bouquet and popped up a sentiment, white embossed on black cardstock. In the end, I added several Midnight Blue Crystals.

The next card is my favorite card! I did very simple coloring with minimal layering and blending.

I started by stamping the images onto black cardstock using clear inks and gold heat embossed. You can find the process video below which shows you how I colored the images. I used my oldie no-name colored pencils, but I recommend using Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils Set of 36. (Check out the link! Sale up to 35% Off) This set includes all necessary colors and their high quality pigments allow for a rich color saturation. It’s the most important thing when working with dark cardstock.

After I was done, I used the coordinating dies with the Mini Blossom Die Cutting Machine to die cut the images. I foam mounted flowers and leaves on my black card panel and cut out the excess. I popped up a sentiment, gold heat embossed on black cardstock. At last, I glued my panel onto a white card base and finished off the card with Midnight Blue Crystals.

Dandelion Wishes Stamp Set

For my next one-layer simple card I used Dandelion Wishes Stamp Set. So first, I blended Sea Glass Ink onto a white panel. I stamped the image and a sentiment, added some clear drops. This stamp set will be good for creating CAS cards.

World Map Stamp Set

I have a trio of simple cards featuring three basic techniques – Stamping, Ink Blending & Heat Embossing created using World Map Stamp Set.

For the first card I used stamping technique. I stamped the image with Altenew inks:pink diamond, pinkalicious, rubellite  onto a white card panel and adhered it onto an A2 white card base. I then stamped a sentiment in black ink onto a white cardstock stripe. I used thin foam adhesive and foam mounted the sentiment stripe onto the background and added some sequins.

For the second card I used blending and heat embossing techniques. I was inspired by World Time Zone Map which displays current time and daylight in any place around the world right now.

I white heat embossed a background using the World Map Stamp Set on white cardstock. I blended Caribbean sky, Persian blue, and Sapphire ink colors to create a dark night sky background with the white world map. I stamped a sentiment onto the card panel. Next, I cut the card panel into stripes and mounted them onto the card base with different levels.

For the next card, I made a panel out of  dark Blueberry Cardstock and heat embossed the map using Altenew Antique Gold Embossing Powder. I also heat embossed a sentiment using the same powder. I foam mounted the panel onto a white card base.

Handpicked Bouquet Stamp & Die Bundle

If you are new to layering stamping I recommend this stamp set. It is really easy to stamp and the results are stunning. You will be able to color in the images with other mediums if you wish so. I created three cards with different looks for you using Handpicked Bouquet Stamp Set.

For the first card, I started by stamping the flowers onto white cardstock using Altenew ink colors: lagoon, volcano lake for leaves and pink diamond, pinkalicious, rubellite for flowers. I used the coordinating dies with the Mini Blossom Die Cutting Machine to die cut the images. I made a panel out of black cardstock and glued it to my folded white card base and then foam mounted the flowers.

I heat embossed a sentiment from this set with white embossing powder, trimmed it down to a rectangle and mounted it onto the panel. In the end, I added my favorite Midnight Blue Crystals.

For the second card I started by stamping images using Altenew ink colors: warm sunshine, buttercream, caramel toffee  and ocean waves for the flowers, and forest glades, frayed leaf for the leaves.

In the end, I stamped the sentiment and added a few sequins.

The third card I made in my own style. I used my “dots” coloring technique (check out this and this post if you are new to my blog).

I started making the card by stamping the images with Ranger Archival Black Ink on a white cardstock panel and blending various colors of Altenew inks: ocean waves and mountain mist. Next, I started coloring the images with Zig Markers using my “dots” coloring technique. I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder, trimmed it down to a rectangle and mounted it onto the panel. To achieve more attractive look, I added Nuvo Glimmer Paste on the flowers.

In the end, I added my favorite Midnight Blue Crystals.

Wild Ferns Stamp Set

I’m going to show you how you can create a stylish handmade card for your friends using just a handful of supplies. I made a card featuring simple stamping. I highly recommend using the Wild Ferns Stamp Set for any occasion. It is really easy to stamp and the results are stunning.

I started by stamping a sentiment and the ferns onto a card panel using Altenew ink colors: hunter green, just green, sweet leaf & minty mint. Once my stamping was done, I die cut the letter “A” using the Mega Alphabet A Die out of my stamped panel. Next, I die cut additionally four letters from a white cardstock. I wanted to add pink color layers to the die cuts, but I hadn’t a pink cardstock. So, I decided to colored them using a pink marker.

Then I stacked the letters up and glued together. It was very easy to apply glue.

Inked Rose Stamp Set

I especially love the Inked Rose Stamp Set! I made three cards for you. I then decided to filmed a video process which shows how to make a simple watercolor card. So, that why I have four cards in the end and there are two cards with the same design.

Holy cow, what a compilation of amazing cards! I love the jewel tones of the first three cards. They feel very fall-like to me, which is nice, especially with all the Christmas cards many of us are working on right now. I also really enjoy the patchy watercoloring style of the final card. That’s one that I have a really hard time doing, because I fiddle with the colors too much, so I love seeing it done right. Thanks for sharing all this with us; I definitely feel inspired!

Wow! It was a pleasure to watch you color in both of your videos. You’ve made me want to give colored pencils a shot. Thank you for taking your time to make the videos and all of those cards! All of your cards are absolutely lovely! I really liked the Travel card with the alternating elevated panels. You also did a beautiful job with the Inked Rose Stamp set- definitely on my wishlist!
