Altenew January 2019 Stamp & Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello, friends! I’m part of the Altenew January 2019 Stamp & Die Release Blog Hop today! I created four cards for you! You can find all the details for new products and giveaways below.

You should have arrived from Sandra Dietrich’s blog and the next stop on the hop is my friend Kymona Tracey. If you lose your place or need more information, you can begin on the Altenew Card Blog.


Affiliate links may be used in this post. You can find the lists of my favorite supplies here.

I started by creating two cards with the Floral Heart Frame Die. The first card features an alcohol ink background (made with Altenew’s marker refills!) and metallic gold cardstock.

For the second card, I created a rainbow background with alcohol ink markers swiped across Yupo paper. I mounted a white heart frame for the card and finished it off with splattters and a heat-embossed sentiment.

The next card features the Wild Rose 3D Die Set. Altenew has excelled in releasing 3D die sets, and this is a must have. I did some loose watercoloring and paired the images with my favorite cover die on the base.

For my final card, I used the Beautiful Blossoms stamp set. What a beauty to try with different coloring mediums. I kept it simple so you can see the details.

All products are linked below.


Check out the new release here! You can also find it at Simon Says Stamp or Ellen Hutson.

    Such lovely creations! I really like the gold script against the alcohol inks on the first one, and how you left the little chads in the heart on the second. The wild rose card is a work of he(art)! And love the purples….we don’t use enough purple in our cradt. Thanks for all the inspiration!
