Altenew April 2019 Washi Tape/Embossing Paste Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

And welcome to my stop in the Altenew April 2019 Washi Tape/Embossing Paste Release Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Svitlana Shayevich's blog, however if you need a map, a full list of the blog hop is listed below.

So  I hope to inspire and help with some of your wish list decision in my projects today. 

Let’s start with the new Embossing PasteI'll tell you a secret, while I was working with Paste, I was afraid to eat it - such an airy texture it have, it reminded me of a souffle. Lol
So I started my experiments with paste using Layered Dahlia A&B Stencil Bundle.
I wanted to create a multi-layered image, giving volume to some details. This bundle is just perfect! 

At first I masked the background and ink blended Cotton CandyArctic Crisp and Minty Mint Altenew inks. To give the background texture, I covered it with B stencil and used paste, but  dyed it for flowers - with Coral Berry Metallic Shimmer Ink Spray and for the leaves - Mountain Mist Metallic Shimmer Ink Spray.

For the sentiment bunner I used new Gold String Washi Tape - the great way to add a charm to the card. The die "hello" is from Flower Arrangement Die Set.

Next up, is the card featuring the new interesting Misty Meadows Washi Tape with new Golden Trim Washi Tape

So I made the background using only washi tapes. However, I needed the main element of the card. And I made a butterfly using new Embossing Paste with Flowing Butterfly StencilThe card came out so  summery.

Next up, is the absolutely stunning Teal Shadow Washi TapeThis tape features beautiful watercolored floral images in a soothing teal color. And it is simply created by cutting and making bouquets. Which I did!

To create the background I used my favorite Square Weave Pattern Stencil with the Embossing PasteTo add a color I used Sunkissed Metallic Shimmer Ink Spray.
In the center I placed a pre-made oval, studded with glitter - the perfect way to create an imitation of a shaker. And glued bouquets on top and bottom diagonally from right to left. The die "thank you" is from Flower Arrangement Die Set.

Altenew 5th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 3 + Giveaway

Hello, friends! This week Altenew celebrating 5th anniversary with an incredible blog hop! And I’m so honored to be participating in the Altenew’s 5th anniversary blog hop today.
You should have arrived from Meghann Andrew, but if not don’t worry there is a hop list at the bottom of my post. Join us today on a fun blog hop celebrating Altenew’s birthday with tons of inspiration and lots of giveaways! 

To celebrate Altenew's Anniwersary I made an experimental wooden floral background card using Mega Hydrangea Stencil and Wood Pallet Background Stamp Set 

First, I covered the white base with a stencil and toned all using Cherry Blossom Mini Cube Set. But I did not remove the mask, and continued to stamp through it, giving the pattern the texture of the tree. I think it turned out great! Wooden hydrangeas, like a picture carved on a tree.

To create the composition of the card I used Caps Bold Alphabet Die Set, I cut out the word YOU and slightly tinted the letters at the bottom with Fresh Lemon Crisp Dye Ink. The elegance to the card gave the Fenstone Decorative Element.

Your next stop in the hop is Heidi Jakobs.

Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 5 lucky winners and one Altenew Academy class to 10 lucky winners. There are also 14 awesome companies/crafty friends who are celebrating with us, and they are offering the following prizes:

Hello my friends! I am so happy to be back to Altenew's blog as guest designer. 
You can also find my previous Guest post here

And today I want to show you my three cards I made with Altenew products. What we want in winter after Christmas days? I think, more flower cards! So I want to show three ways to make flower cards. 

The first card is the watercolor card. I like to use watercolor sometimes when play with materials. This way you don't need to many supplies, but you can create a whole picture on one small piece of paper. Isn't that magic? 
And I talk now about Build-A-Flower: Poppy set. In this set we have some silhouettes that we can use without stamping. 

First, I stamped the flowers and leaves with Rocky Shore Crisp Dye Ink on watercolor paper. Then I took my wet paintbrush and went over them with water to blend them and give them a watercolored look. After that I added some accents with pencils.

Then I watercolored the background with light grey. For the sentiment I used Hello from Flower Arrangement Die Set.

For my second card I used Leaf Frame cover die and Wild Rose 3D Die Set.

I started with covering up a piece of paper with Leaf Frame and die cut it. Then I colored every leaf using pencils and splattered it with white paint. Next I blended yellow and green inks using Pocketful of Sunshine Mini Cube SetGreen Meadows Mini Cube Set on my background and then splattered it with water and white paint. 

Once it was dry, I die cut the roses and glued them together using liquid glue. I repeated the process for the leaves. Then, I adhered the flowers and the leaves on the panel. And to finished my card I added Thank you sentiment from Flower Arrangement Die Set.

The last card looks like an open book page. For an expressive effect, I decided to give the card a vintage look. 

So I did the stamping on the Kraft paper only silhouettes of the leaves. In the center I glued the prepared form of a book turn, on which I had previously stamped an excellent selection of phrases.

Next, I decorated it all with stamped flowers from the Flower Arrangement Stamp Set and adding branches from the Forever and a Day Die Set.
I think the card came out fabulous.


  • To celebrate this day, I will be giving away $20 gift certificate to ONE lucky winner from the comments left in my instagram @olga_moss by Friday, February 22th. 
    Thanks so much for stopping by! 
    Have a wonderful day!
