Altenew October 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway + Video

Hello everyone and Welcome to the Altenew October 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop! I'm so excited to join this hop!!! You should have come from Virginia Lu, but if not please start at the Altenew blog.


I have a lot of cards to share with you today! 


My first card very soft and airy. I decided to make a no-line coloring with this gorgeous flowers from Always There stamp set. 


I stamped the flowers and the leaves onto watercolor paper with Antique Linen distress inks and softly watercolored the images using Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers


Then I stamped the brunch with berries from Blooming Branches stamp set onto watercolor paper using Altenew inks and slightly blurred ink with a wet brush, to make it more watercolored look. 


Once my coloring was done, I die cut the images with coordinating dies. 


 I watercolored the background with some orange paint and foam mounted the flowers on top of my panel once my background was dry. 





For my second card I used Cozy Flannel cover die and Peacful Wreath stamp set. I've started by stamping this beautiful wreath using Altenew inks.


Then, I blended light blue distress inks on my background and splattered it with the same ├Čnks and silver paint. Then I covered up my background with Cozy Flannel panel and foam mounted the wreath on top of this.



Next, I die cut the word Peace out of silver glitter cardstock and adhered on top of the wreath. To finished my card I add the glossy accent on top of the berries.



VIDEO TUTORIAL

A detailed process of this card you can watch here on this post or in HD at my YouTube channel.


Thank you so much for watching!





For my third card, I used gorgeous Always There stamp set again. I stamped the flowers with clear embossing ink on watercolor paper and heat embossed it with metallic embossing powder.

 Next, I watercolored the images using Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers and splattered it with some of the leftover paint and also with a silver paint. 



Then, I gold heat embossed the word Thanks from Playful Blooms stamp set onto piece of black cardstock and die cut it with coordinating die and adhered onto my card. 





 For this card I stamped the pretty flowers from Playful Blooms stamp set and the leaves from Always There stamp set with black ink onto watercolor paper and watercolored with distress inks. 



Then, I watercolored the backgrounds with distress inks and splattered with clean water. Once my background was done, I die cut the flowers with coordinating dies and adhered with foam tape on top of my panel. 




My last card is very simple. First, I watercolored the background with distress inks. Then I  stamped beautiful branch from Blooming Branches stamp set onto white cardstock using Altenew inks. 


Then, I die cut the brunch with coordinating die and foam mounted on top of my panel. To finished my card I added drops of glossy accent and sequins.
