Altenew April 2019 Washi Tape/Embossing Paste Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello friends,

I'm so excited to join Altenew's washi tape / embossing paste release blog hop today! You should have arrived here from Kymona's blog but I'm adding the full blog hop list at the end of this post for your convenience.

Let's get to it, shall we?! There are five gorgeous washi tapes in this release as well as an embossing paste. You can buy the washi tapes as a bundle at a discounted price. I used each product from this release on today's projects.

First up is a card duo using two of the washi tapes: Botanical Rhapsody and Misty Meadows, and the embossing paste too. When I'm not in a crafty mood I often fussy cut, so that's what I did here...


I wanted to add some white on white texture to the backgrounds, so I took two stencils: Floral Drape and Tiny Bubbles and added some embossing paste.


I then created clusters of flowers and arranged them on the card base. Some white embossed sentiment strips and done!


Next up is another floral duo! I just love flowers, can't you tell? On these ones I decided to create a more colorful background, which is why I colored the embossing paste to match the teal flowers I cut out of the Teal Shadow washi tape


Once the embossed panels were dry (I've used the Floral Drape stencil by the way). I mounted them onto A2 card bases. 


I arranged the flowers the way I wanted and glued them down. I added a couple of slim gold strips using the lovely Golden Trim washi tape. Gold embossed sentiments finish off these cards.


Since I had an insane amount of fussy cut flowers, I decided to use them up on layouts (I didn't manage haha!).

On this first layout I used an Instax camera cut file from Handipaper, which I backed with various pink card stock. The big flower I backed with the Gold String washi tape


I also die cut a bunch of flowers with the Layered Floral Elements die set, which I just adore! For these I've used some patterned papers from the Reflection kit.  


I created 3 flower clusters with lots of washi tape and die cut flowers. I added a bit of tangled gold thread too, for interest. 


I chose some embellies from Altenews various scrapbook collections and placed them around my page. To finish off this layout I added my journaling, date, and a lot of gold ink splatter.


On my next layout I wanted to create a floral frame from all the washi flowers. I generally don't like such lineal designs but I wanted something different from the circle and wreath designs I often do. 


Some of the flowers I adhered to the background with liquid glue, for others I used foam tape, to have some dimension on my layout. 


I had some blue embossing paste left from my card project so I embossed a piece of white card stock with the same stencil I mentioned above and used it to make a mat for my photo and to create a focal point on my page. Then I die cut my title using the Calligraphy Alpha die set. I die cut the letters several times to create a faux chipboard title.


I adhered a few embellies to the photo, wrote my journaling on one of the label stickers, added my date and some teal ink splatter.


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