Altenew December 2018 Stamp/Die/Paper Pack Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

And welcome to my stop in the Altenew December 2018 Stamp/Die/Paper Pack Release Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from amazing Rubeena Ianigro 's blog, however if you need a map, a full list of the blog hop is listed below.

I'm so exciting to be a part of this Release! And I am very grateful to Altenew for the opportunity to work with new products among the first, it makes me proud!
Get ready to see here a lot of photos, cards and - WOW - my layout. I'm just bursting with the pleasure that I experienced when working with new products!
So I hope to inspire and help with some of your wish list decision in my projects today.

Let’s start with the new Wispy Begonia Stamp SetThis set is perfect for watercolor! So I without hesitation made a floral background using white powder for embossing on watercolor paper. I masked each flower and leaf step by step - it took a lot of patience. 

Then I with great pleasure painted everything using watercolor markers and paints. The background is done! It came out very bright and dense, so I wanted to add a large sentiment here and took a new Mega Friend Die. It turned out very impressive!

The last card came out very gentle. Here I combined new Ruffled Flowers Stamp & Die Bundle with a sheet of new Pastel Dreams 6x6 Paper Pack

I started with blending a piece of the white card stock with Ocean Waves Crisp Dye Ink. After ink blending I splattered my panel with water and red, yellow and blue paint.

Then I stamped flowers from Ruffled Flowers Stamp & Die Bundle and die cut with coordinating dies. Next I've made the round window usind the patterned paper and put all the details on foamed tape. The card is ready!

Last up the card featuring the new Delicate Primrose Stamp & Die Bundle. The design of this card is quite simple and fast, but it turned out very charming!

I started by stamping all the layers of the flowers and leaves. Then, I die cut them with the coordinating dies. For the background, I blended Purple Wine Crisp Dye Ink and Cosmic Berry Crisp Dye Ink. I applied the darker shade only on the edges of the panel. Then, I assembled all the flowers directly onto the background with a lot of foam tape. Look at the dimension!

I really like to mix together different sets from Altenew - they perfectly match with each other, don't they? So, I decided to show it in this layout. I know that I established itself as cardmaker, however, I scraper who loves to do the layouts too.

So, for this layout, I combined the Pastel Dreams 6x6 Paper PackDelicate Primrose Stamp Set and Nature Snippets Stamp Set with Mega Friend DieWhy not right?

Hello and Welcome to the December Confetti Creative Hop!  

We are taking a look back on the past year and sharing some new projects, as well.  You'll find a full hop list at the end of this post. 

I have prepared this winter card for today. I really like winter cards - at this time, we always want magic. So we can make the most fun, bright, shiny cards like in none of the other seasons.

So, work on the card is quite simple, but time-consuming. This is a watercolor card with painted characters and background. I really liked these gnomes from the Holiday Gnomes set, they are OH so cute!

And I want to share with you my top 3 favorite projects from this year...

Hope you’ve enjoyed hopping with us today.

For my card I played with Hope Stamp & Die Bundle with Beveled Squares StencilAs always I started with preparing all details of the card. I stamped the flowers using Red Sunset Mini Cube Set, and the leaves using Green Meadows Mini Cube Set and cut them with coordinating dies. 

The last step was to make the background: I stenciled the white paper and blended it with 
Minty MintSweet LeafFresh LemonCitrus Burst inks, sprinkled it with Iridescent Shimmer Ink Spray to give shine to the card.

Next I trimmed the background to be just smaller than the card base. 
To create a sentiment I die cut Hope word out of silver paper and also stamped "your day is amazing".
Then I glued all the details. And embelish the card with some silver crystals.

 In the life card looks elegant and charming!
