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

Hi there friends,

I'm so excited to be joining the Altenew November 2018 stamp/die/ink/sticker release blog hop today! You can find the full release here. It's another awesome release!

You should have arrived here from the amazing Lydia Evans' blog! I bet she made some incredible cards again!

Let's start with the gorgeous Handpicked Bouquet stamp and die bundle! I made two A2 size top folding card bases and adhered purple and yellow card stock to the front, in the same size. I then selected matching purple and yellow inks and stamped two flowers on white card stock. I partially die cut these images, then attached them to the card base. I stamped the sentiments and done!

For my next card duo I used the Wild Ferns stamp and die bundle. I love how realistic these ferns look like once you add all the layers! I stamped them randomly on both these cards, then added some gold detailing with a gold pen. I used the older Thanks die for my title on one of these cards, which I die cut 4 times and layered them up for a more dimensional look. I added some gold thread under it. On my other card I used a sentiment from the Wild Ferns stamp set, which I embossed in gold. 

I've made another duo with the Wild Ferns set because I wanted to try what they would look like in gray. For these cards I've actually die cut the leaves. The Thanks card is pretty similar to my previous one - I just added some washi tape flowers that I fussy cut. The washi tape I've used for these cards is the suuuuuper gorgeous Glitter Flurries washi tape. I can't even. It's so beautiful! On my other card I just added a circle of pink card stock and created a sort of wreath of leaves and flowers around it. I embossed my sentiment in white.

I've created my next three cards with the Engraved Flowers stamp and die bundle. I stamped all my images on water color paper and colored in a few of them. On the first two cards I mixed and matched them with the black stamped images. All sentiments are from this same stamp set and I love love love the font!

I kept my third card in black and white. I did add some gold thread in between the layers, just for a little something something! 

For my last 3 cards I've used the World Map stamp set. I thought this stamp would be great for masculine cards too (then I went ahead and made more feminine cards haha!). One layer cards are not so much my thing but I like how these turned out. I stamped the first one in rainbow colors, stamped my sentiment in black and added some black ink drops. Done :D. There are also some awesome stickers in this release! I've used some of them on these envelopes. Check out the whole collection though, there's lots of different ones!

Here I used three different shades of gray ink to stamp an ombre background. Maybe this one is good for a man? Sentiment, black splatters, done! Easy peasy.

On my last card for today I've used the beautiful Altenew Razzleberry Crisp embossing powder and the other image from the World Map stamp set. It looks so cool in person, too bad this picture doesn't do it justice.
