Altenew August 2022 Marvelous Monthly Series Release Blog Hop

 


Hi there everyone! 

Welcome to Altenew's August Marvelous Monthly Series.

You must be here from Mindy Eggen's blog.

Altenew Build-A-Garden: Daffodil Delight


My first card features the Build-A-Garden: Daffodil Delight.
I used only two inks and the coloring stencil that is in the Build-A-Garden: Daffodil Delight & Add-on Die Bundle.

The inks I used are Sunray and Limeade Crisp Dye Inks. To add dimension and interest, I also added a bit of stenciling using the Grid Stencil and the same two inks. 
I love how this one turned out! 
I have a tutorial for this coming up at the end of this month.

Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Wood Anemone Outline Stamp Set

I used Artist Alcohol Markers to color this. It is also a one layer card and I used the Monochrome Pencils to add faux dimension.

I combined markers from different ink families to get these colors. Video to come soon!


Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit: Magnolia & Blooms

I used the stencils to color the image and then cut it out to arrange it differently.

Altenew August 2022 Bold & Beautiful Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 


Hello and welcome to Altenew's August release.

You must be here from the amazing Caly Person's blog.


Altenew Rolling Foliage 3D Embossing Folder

My first card features the Rolling Foliage 3D Embossing Folder.

I loved how this one turned out. I kept it super simple and classy.

I embossed Blush Cardstock and fussy cut around the embossed area. Next, I used Frosty Pink Pigment Ink and gently swiped it over the panel. I adhered this onto a cream-colored card base; I also added some scored lines on the lower half of the card front for interest.
To finish, I added some pearls to the flower centers.

Altenew Intricate Mandala Stencil

Easiest cards to make, and they look super elegant too!
I used the Altenew Intricate Mandala Stencil on my cards to deboss the stencil design. You can use both the emboss or the debossed version. I adhered it onto my card base and then added some gold splatters. 

The sentiment is from one of the Script Word dies.

Now onto my last card.


Altenew Happy Flowers Stamp & Die Bundle

This one features the Happy Flowers Stamp & Die Bundle.
I apologize but I forgot to note down the ink colors that I used. I know I used a darker ink for the top most flower's second layer as the other two were too bright for me. And I did the same for the leaves, too, just to add a bit of variation among the blues. 

I then used the same blue for my background and my favorite Fine Tulle Stencil.
