Altenew June 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hi, everyone! Welcome!
I'm so honored to be a part of the blog hop for June 2019 Stamps/Dies/Stencil Release at Altenew. I hope you've come here from very talented Sandra's Blog, or you can start your hop from Altenew Card Blog.
Today, I'm going to share 4 cards featuring Forever in Love Stamp SetLeaf Clusters Stamp Set, and Frilly Frame Die from the New Release.

Before moving on, you can see the whole release HERE.

The Forever in Love Stamp Set has two beautiful rose bouquets with elegant sentiments in it. I really love this.

< Card 1>


I started by stamping the images on watercolor paper and water-colored them using Altenew's Watercolor Brush Markers. I then cut the images with Forever in Love Coordinating Die set.


For my first card, I stamped a sentiment from Forever in Love set onto A2 sized 110lb Neena White paper and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I then used Watercolor Stripes Cover Die to make a dry-embossed background on the surface. 



I adhered rose bouquet and leaves on the panel using foam tapes, and then I foam mounted the panel onto a white card base. I used Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix to embellish the card. 

< Card 2 >


For the second card, I used Cross Stitch Canvas Die to make a textured background for my flowers. The sentiment was chosen from Forever in Love set and heat embossed in white on gray cardstock. 



I then embellished it using Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix and Raspberry Sequins.
The main Watercolor Brush Marker Colors I used are Purple Wine, Sweet Leaf, Paper Bag, Crimson, Ruby Red, Lagoon, Warm Sunshine, Midnight Violet, Evening Gray, Limeade, and Moss.



Now I've finished two different cards by using just one stamp set :) 



☆☆☆

Solid shape stamps are my all-time favorites and here's a brand new gorgeous Leaf Clusters Stamp Set which has lots of design possibilities. 


< Card 3 >



I stamped Leaf Clusters Stamp Set on 80lb Neenah White paper using various dye inks from very light colors to dark colors, then I cut the panel with Cross Stitch Canvas Die to give a unique texture to it. A sentiment from the same stamp set was heat embossed in white on gray paper and foam mounted on the panel. 


< Card 4 >


The 4th card is very similar to the previous one, where I used Morning Frost, Evening Gray, Warm Sunshine, Autumn Blaze, Firebrick, Frost Glades and Evergreen



I used Frilly frame Die from the new release to give the panel a very unique texture.
For embellishment, I used Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix, 3mm Sparkling Clear Sequins and Gold Metallic Sequins.



That's it from me for today. Now, your next stop to hop along is my lovely friend Seeka's Thank you so much for visiting. 
Have a great day!

Marge
