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

Hello everyone! I am very happy to be participating in the Altenew December 2018 Stamp/Die/Paper Pack Release Blog Hop today! You should have come from amazing May Sukyong Park, but if not please start at the Altenew blog.




I made a several cards to celebrate Altenew December release!







My first card featuring amazing Celestial paper. I stamped the flowers from Ruffled Flowers stamp set onto piece of galaxy paper and white heat embossed it.

Then I die cutting the images with coordinating dies. Next, I trimmed the edges  of patterned paper using my paper trimmer.


I adhered everything together onto white panel with foam tape. After this, I splattered my panel with black paint for more interesting look. 



For the sentiment I die cut Love and covered it with Platinum embossing powder.

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!



My second card featuring gorgeous Engagement Wishes stamp set. I stamped the flowers with clear ink onto watercolor paper and white heat embossed it. 





Then, I slightly watercolored the flowers with coral and peachy paints and for the background I mixed blue and green paints.



Once my coloring was done I sprinkled my panel with the same paints and silver paint. 


Next, I gold heat embossed the sentiment from stamp set onto stripe of light gray cardstock and adhered on top of my panel with foam tape. 






My next card is quite simple. 


I stamped beautiful flowers from Ruffled Flowers stamp set with black ink onto watercolor paper and messy watercolored using Altenew Brush Markers. 


These markers are my favorite coloring medium at the moment. I love their pure and bright colors. 


Once my coloring was done, I sprinkled my panel with leftover inks from my pallet. 


Then, I white heat embossed the sentiment onto stripe of kraft cardstock and foam mounted onto my panel.



For my last card I used cute Nature Snippets stamp set featuring Ruffled Flowers stamp set. I've started by blending white piece of cardstock with Mocha Altenew inks. Then, I sprinkled my panel with clean water and silver paint. I stamped the images from Nature Snippets stamp set with Altenew inks and gold heat embossed the second layer and fussy cut this. 




Next, I white heat embossed the flowers and blended with light blue inks before die cut it. Finally, I adhered everything together onto my panel finished my card with sparkling sequins.
