Altenew April 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil/Paper Pack Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello crafty friends,

I'm so excited to be joining the Altenew April 2019 release blog hop today! You should have arrived here from the lovely Nicole Picadura's blog.

There are so many beautiful stamps and dies in this month's release again! I've created quite a few cards to showcase these gorgeous products. Hope you'll like them! Since it's quite a few cards, I won't be doing step by steps BUT if you want to know any details on how I made something or what  products I used (other than stamps and dies which I will be linking in this post), please just ask away. I'm always happy to help!

All my cards today are top folding A2 size cards. No reason for this format. It's just what I like most!
First up are 2 sets of cards using the Spring Fling stamp set (coordinating dies and stamp and die bundle also available), the Bundle of Joy stamp set (coordinating dies and stamp and die bundle also available) and the Spring Meadow cover die

I had to create 2 sets because it wouldn't be fair to only make these for baby girls, right? So I have a baby boy set down below too!





In addition to the products listed above, on these ones I also used the Fancy Hello die. This is a great die to have in your stash!





Next up is a trio I've created with the A Study in Watercolor stamp set (coordinating dies and stamp and die bundle also available). I tried to mimic the look of watercolor with ink pads and ombre shading. Quick and easy! For the sentiments I used the Be Kind stamp set.





On my next cards I also used the A Study in Watercolor coordinating die set since I love my cards more dimensional. I stamped a few images, die cut them and arranged them in 2 ways. 


I love texture on my cards and Altenew's cover dies are perfect for this! Here I used the Cube Cover die and the Cross Stitch Canvas cover die. I love cover dies, they are so versatile! Here again I added  dimensional sentiments I created with the Fancy Hello die.




Last but not least I have a duo I've made with the lovely Rose Spray stamp set (coordinating dies and stamp and die bundle also available). Lately I've been into creating polka dot backgrounds for some reason - you can do this with a single circle stamp of any kind, for instance the one from the Simple Shapes stamp set or for a jumbo look the one from the Simple Shapes XL stamp set! Or even the solid circle in the fabulous Simple Flowers stamp set. This super fun basic set is also one I use very often for different projects - it's so versatile!




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

Prizes: 
1. To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 6 lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook blog by 04/22/2019 for a chance to win.
