Altenew January 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello there crafty friends,

The wonderful Altenew January release is here! You should have arrived here from the lovely Heather's blog!

For lack of time, I'm going to keep this post short, because I've made quite a few projects. If you have any questions on how I made something, please don't hesitate to ask!

Alright, first up is the wonderful Radial Heart die. I die cut this from white card stock as well as from a few different patterned papers from the Pastel Dreams pad. I then pieced the hearts back in, alternating between papers. I used the Simply Friend die for my sentiment. I die cut this a bunch of times and stacked them for a dimensional look. I added an organza ribbon bow to finish my card.

Next up is the All the Hearts die set. I created two shaker cards filling them both with the tiny little hearts you can cut with these dies. These sentiments are from the All the Hearts stamp set and I just white embossed them.

The next two cards I made with the All the Hearts stamp and die sets. I stamped all 4 hearts at the same time, switching between colors, all shades of orange and purple. I added various little gold accents: embossed sentiments, enamel dots, metallic thread and glitter paper.

On the next two cards I used a bunch of different sets: All the Hearts stamp and die sets, Angelique Motifs stamp set and the Angelique Motifs mask stencil. This stencil is a new product, it comes with little die cut pieces which you can use to mask your images. These stencils are thinner than the standard Altenew stencil. However, I didn't do any masking here - I just used the stencil the traditional way and added modelling paste to one of my cards.

Next up, the Stained Glass Window stamp and die sets. This is such a versatile set, you can stamp the flowers many different ways. I went with the stained glass look on one and just good old simple stamping on the other. For one of the cards I used patterned papers from the Pastel Dreams and Verdant Walk paper packs to create the background. For the other one I used a stamp from the Stained Glass Window set - I partly stamped and partly embossed this panel. 

Last but not least, some projects with my favorite product of this month, the Hibiscus Garden 3D die set. On my first card, as well as the 12x12 layout, I used papers from the Reflection kit.

I made another card too, I wanted this to be different from my first...So I switched to color card stock and die cut the blooms from 4 different shades of yellow. I dont have a huge card stock stash, so finding 4 different shades of just one color is extremely difficult ha!

Last but not least I made a layout because this ancient photo has been on my desk for years and I actually have hibiscus flowers in my hair. I thought it would be a good fit.  Again, I used papers from the Reflection kit to die cut the flowers and leaves.

I added a couple of embellishments here and there, not many mind you, because I felt like those beautiful flowers alone already added plenty of texture and dimension to my page.

And now the fun part...Giveaways, yay! Read on to find out how you can win! Good Luck!
