For today’s blog hop I’ve created two simple projects using stamp sets from the new release. For my first card, I used Brilliant Baubles Stamp Set and coordinating dies. This set features six different tree ornaments with 3 or 4 layers. There are also accompanying bows and a string image to finish the look.

I stamped my ornaments with different colours of inks and I used Golden Peach Crisp Embossing Powder for the second layer of each ornament, for a shiny and texture effect.

For my next project I created two gift tags using Peace Love Joy Stamp Set, that features stamps with a touch of Scandinavian charm. I created my tags with Handmade Tags Die Set, then I stamp the ornaments and die cut them using coordinating dies.

I went for green with a touch of red colour combo and added a few drops of Glossy Accents for a bit of shine and dimension. I love how quick and easy this tags came together.

Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello everyone and welcome to the Altenew Watercolour Brush Markers Release Blog Hop! If you came here from Lisa Spangler's blog, then you are on the right track. Otherwise, go back to the Altenew Card Blog and start from there, as you won't want to miss anything!

There is a new addition to the Altenew collection of markers being released today, and I’m very excited about it! New Watercolour Brush Markers are simply amazing and I love that they perfectly coordinate with Altenew line of colour families! The barrel of each marker is filled with water-based colour, the flexible, yet sturdy bristles on the brush tip allow you to form both broad and fine strokes and colour can be applied straight from the marker, or diluted with water for a softer look.

To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $40 gift certificate to six lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog by Wednesday, October 10th for a chance to win. Six winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 12/10/2018.

In addition, one winner will be chosen from the comments left on this blog post and will receive a $20 gift certificate!

Today I've created a simple card just to give you a simple idea of using the new markers. I started with Fantasy Floral 3D Die Set and die cut a flower and few leaves out of watercolour paper. Then I used the watercolour markers to colour them. I decided to go for the following colours: Rubellite, Autumn Blaze, Warm Sunshine, Moss and Dusk.

you are my world

I slightly diluted my colours with a few drops of water and dabbed the die-cuts with a paper towel while the paint was still wet. The sentiment comes from Circled Sentiments Stamp Set and was die-cut using die from Halftone Circles Nesting Die Set.

you are my world


That’s it for me, your next stop on the hop is Zinia Redo and I can't wait to see what she came up with today!

Today I've created two very simple “thank you” cards to share with you. For my first card, I used a beautiful Glitter Flurries Washi Tape. It features pretty watercolour floral elements with gold foil accents and I decided to use it as a background for my card.

thank you

I had a different idea in my mind, but when I applied the tape on white card base I immediately thought that it’s so beautiful in itself that I can’t cover it with any embellishments. So I decided to go for a simplest sentiment and die cut the Altenew Fine Alphabet Dies to make “thank you”. I die cut the sentiment three times and stacked the letters together for some dimension.

thank you

For my second card I created the “thank you” sentiment with the same technique, but for the top layer I used a cardstock covered with Glided Ombre Washi Tape.

thank you

To finish the card I die cut white roses from Rose Filament Die Set and used them as a background for the sentiment.

thank you

That’s it for me, your next stop on the hop is Nicole Picadura and I can't wait to see what she came up with today!

Today I've created two simple cards to share with you. For my first card, I used the new Bountiful Branch Stamp Set to create a very quick and simple card. I decided to go for a traditional red and green colour combo and used the following Altenew inks: Rouge, Crimson and Velvet for berries and Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades and Evergreen for the leaves.

season's greetings

For my second card I combined the Bountiful Branch Set with a sentiment from Mini Christmas Stamp Set. This time I decided to go for a monochromatic, neutral look and I used stamps from the Bountiful Branch Set with the Altenew Rock Collection Mini Cube Set to create my background. The sentiment was heat embossed with Rose Gold Crisp Embossing Powder.
