Altenew Fresh Start Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and welcome to the Altenew Fresh Start blog hop! 

Today Altenew is releasing many products: stamp, dies, stencils and embossing folders! There's something for everyone for sure! If you're on the right track, you've arrived here from the wonderful Norine Borys' blog. I'll also add the full blog hop list at the end of this post for your convenience.

I've created a few projects for today and since I have process videos for all of them, I won't be writing a long and boring step by step here. If you're interested in how these cards were made, please head to my YouTube channel, where you will also find a complete list of supplies I've used.

Alright, let's get to it then, shall we? :)

First up, a duo with possibly my two most favorite products from this release, the Grid Cover Die and the Airbrushed Flowers Stamp and Die Bundle!

Next up, a duo with the Spotted Orchid Stamp and Die Bundle where I used up the fall out pieces I had left over from the previous projects, working with the Grid Cover Die! Now, these cards are completely out of my comfort zone, I prefer lots of bold colors on my projects!

The third card duo I've created with the Airbrushed Flowers Stamp and Die Bundle as well as a fabulous new (to me) product, the Ribbon Waves Embossing Folder! Altenew has had these 3D embossing folders for awhile now, but this is my first time working with one and I couldn't be more excited and impressed! The dimension is amazing and my papers didn't tear at all. Huge fan!

With that, we've arrived to the last projects of the day! I've made these slimline cards with the super fun Illusion Heart Die Set. This heart reminded me of conversation hearts, which inspired my whole card design. The little sentiments were made with the Simple Greetings Die Set.

That's it! I hope I could inspire you in one way or another with today's cards.

Now for the fun part!
