Altenew November 2018 Stamp/Die/Ink/Sticker Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and welcome everyone! I am super delighted to be a part of the November 2018 Stamp/Die/Ink/Sticker Release Blog Hop over at Altenew.
You are going to love the various products with variety of styles. You can see all the November Release products HERE.

You should have come here from the talented Nicole Picadura's blog. If not start at the Altenew Blog. This is going to be a long post so grab your favourite drink, relax and enjoy :)

For my first card, I decided to go for a mixed media look using mix of products. I used the Handpicked Bouquet stamp, embossed the floral sprig using Rose Gold embossing powder onto vellum and colored using Alcohol markers.  and Handpicked Bouquet die to create the focal point for my card, I used Wild Ferns stamp set to stamp on the background.  The sentiment is from the Engraved Flowers stamp set. Other than this I also used the Creative Edges: Lace die, Sketched Lines Stencil, pattern paper and enamel dots from the New Day Card Kit. I used  Silver Stone ink and the Rose Gold embossing powder

My next card is using the GORGEOUS Leaf Medallion Die. This die has 2 pieces. For my card, I used both the dies. I started by creating a background using Tim Holtz alcohol inks, I then die-cut the Leaf Medallion Die and applied some Rose Gold and Gina K Hop Pink foil to parts of it. I really love the effect and have been using this technique for many cards :) The sweet sentiment is from another new stamp "Kind Confetti"


Next, I decided to show you two cards using the same stamp but different techniques and looks. Since the Tim Holtz alcohol inks were out, I decided to use them with the WONDERFUL layering stamp "Wild Ferns".
I created the background using alcohol ink and applied some Rose Gold foil to it. I then stamped the 1st. layer of the fern image using Alcohol lift ink and transfer this to a neenah white card stock, so I will be getting 2 cards actually. 
Once, I removed ink from the first panel, I was left with a ghost image of the fern onto the alcohol inked panel. I stamped the last layer from the same fern over the first layer to give some definition to the image. I then die-cut the word HUGS from Script Words Die, stacked it 3 times and adhered it to the panel. The words "sending lots of" is from the Heart Flowers Stamp set.

Now the white panel, which I used to transfer the image to while using the Alcohol lift ink is the start of the 2nd. card. I stamped the 3rd. layer of the same fern using Aqualicious ink. I then stamped some other fern images to this card using Altenew Razzelberry ink and some Delicata gold ink. I then die-cut the word "LOVE" from the Script Words Die, stacked and adhered it to the card.

Fun isn't it!!!
Now to my last card...there are so many ideas going on in my head but I decided to go for a no-line watercolor card. This is one of my favourite techniques. I used the Engraved Flowers stamp set along with the Kind Confetti stamp set. See its so easy to mix and match various stamps :)

Heffy Doodle: Sending Positive Vibes

Hello everyone! I am on the Heffy Doodle blog today, sharing a fun card using few of the new release products. I used Whatcha Saying Now , Dino Time clear stamp sets. Whatcha Saying Now, Dino Time and the Metric Stitched Rectangle Dies. Metric??? YES!!! It's the size for UK/EU card sizes. Perfect for A4 cardstock. AWESOME!! We also have the Imperial size, which is the standard US size, check out HERE. Finally, I also used the new Cross Walk stencil to create my background.

To start with I die cut the rectangle white panel using the Metric Rectangle die. I then masked the edges and sponged some distress ink to it. I then took the stencil and sponged some more ink through it. Remove the stencil and spray some shimmeringz spray. Let this panel dry and remove the mask.

I then stamped the images. I colored the dinos using copic markers. I added some shadows to the palm trees using pencil colors and die cut the images using coordinating dies. I then stamped the sentiment and die cut that too.

Now, adhere the panel to the cardbase. Finally adhere all the images to the card.

Hope you enjoyed this fun and playful card. Have a happy crafty day!
