Hello and welcome to Altenew March 2016 release blog hop!
You probably came from extremely talented Marika (and I am sure you’re smitten by her work). If not – you may consider starting from the beginning at Altenew blog and see what other members of Altenew’s design team have come up with (and also you have a chance to win a prize on each hop node).Today we are celebrating the release of 2 4″x6″ stamp sets, 9 2″x3″ stamp sets, 21 dies, 6 papers, 12 inks, and a set of acrylic blocks.
I made four cards for this release.The first one is the most simply, quick and clean. Every time when I do many cards as a time I like making at least one true CAS card. This is not my regular style and usually I don’t make such. But I like seeing them at others and dream to manage this type of cards one day. For this card first I cut a panel from new Real Gray cardstock. Next – first stamped the camera “background” using the back side of the camera stamp from new Capture Moments set, stamping it with Ocean Waves ink. Then I stamped the camera with Persian Blue ink. Stamped a simple “smile” that found in You Are set. Adhered the panel to a white card base and added some sequins. For the next card I made a trophy full of flowers. Just love how such type of trophy looks used for decor purposes (wish I had one). So to make this card I first die-cut a trophy from new Real Gray cardstock using a die from new Trophy Life set. I wanted it to look like a silver one that had better days. So to add some wear I stamped one layer from To the Moon set with new Evening Gray ink and covered with Silver Wink Of Stella. Stamped and colored a succulent from Succulents set, die-cut the using a die from Succulents and added them “inside” of the trophy. I took a darker gray card base, cut a panel about an inch smaller from new Woodgrain White cardstock, which adhered to the card base. Next I adhered the trophy and flowers using dimensional foam squares, added a sentiment from Label Love set (stamped with Ruby Red ink) and several clear droplets.The next card is probably my favorite one. I just love space theme. First I can a panel from new Navy cardstock and white embossed “stars” using new mini Snowing set. Not sure that there are so many stars of such size seen from our Solar system, but I think it’s still looks like a starry sky.
Next I made my planets. For the Earth I first stamped continents using new Mini Atlas set, stampng it first using Forest Glades ink, then – Dark Chocolate and finally stamped over with Versamark ink and clear embossed them. Next I inked cardstock around the continents using Ocean Waves ink. And finally stamped several times one layer of moon from To the Moon set in white ink to add clouds. And finally I die-cut a planet using a circle die.
For the Moon I stamped the moon from To the Moon set using new Morning Frost, Evening Gray and Moon Rock inks. And die-cut a part from it using a circle die less radius then the one I used for the Earth. To the Moon set is genius. Even cutting a part from the Moon I still got a planet that looks a lot like the Moon. This set is absolutely must have if you ask me.
I white embossed a sentiment from To the Moon set on a stripe of Navy cardstock. Cut the “starry sky” panel into two piecesand adhered them to a white card base along with the sentiment leaving some white space between them. Added some “shine” with white ink in the space I intended my planets to be positioned and finally adhered them to the panel (using foam squared for the Earth).
And for the last card I used a new set designed our extremely talented Marika – Birch Land. I stamped four birch trunks on a watercolor paper, colored them and hand cut. And I stamped some flowers and leaves from Daisy set using Arctic, Caribbean Sky, Persian Blue, Sapphire for flowers and Mango Smoothie, Warm Sunshine and Caramel Toffee for leaves. Cut a panel from new Dark Chocolate cardstock, adhered it to a card base and then adhered the birch trunks in the shape of the frame to the panel. Added some droplets of Distress Spray Stain Antiqued Bronze, adhered flowers and leaves, a sentiment from Beautiful Lady set and some wooden dots.
So there were my cards I made for this release. Hope you liked my cards and got some ideas how new supplies can be used.
