Altenew November 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


 Hello and Welcome to the Altenew November 2017 Release Blog Hop! I'm so excited to join this hop!!! I hope you came from Terhi's blog but if not, please check the full blog hop list in the bottom of this post.



When I first saw this gorgeous stamp set, I wanted to combine it with a floral stamps to create a wreath. I started by stamping the berries image from Golden Garden set on watercolor paper using Sand Dunes Altenew ink and coloring the images with Gansai Tambi watercolors and die cutting with their coordinating dies.



 For my background I stamped the heat embossed sentiment from Forever And a Day stamp set with clear embossing powder and blended some light green ink onto the center of a piece of paper and sprinkled this with water. 



I cut the branches from the set out of white card stock a few times, to create more dimension and to make it stand out on a light green background and adhered it to my blended panel to create a wreath for my flowers. 



I  slightly colored the branches with light brown paint and adhered all the elements onto the card and attached it to the light green card base.



For my next card, I made a pattern with feathers from Golden Feather set. This is such a beautiful stamp set!



I stamped the feathers in two shades of pink and turquoise Altenew inks using the MISTI, then I stamped details on the feather and the sentiment from Story of Us stamp set and heat embossed it with my favorite gold embossing powder.


 
*****


 I made a lot of cards with Story of Us stamp set in different variations, because I just adore this stamp set!



For my first card, I stamped rose and leaves from the Story of Us set with Coral Berry and Forest Glades Altenew inks on watercolor paper. Then I took my wet paintbrush and went over them with just water to blend them and give them a watercolored look. 



Then I watercolored the background with more of the same colors. After it was dry I speckled it with more of the same inks. Then I stamped the sentiment with black ink and added a few sequins.





 For my second card, I stamped the layered rose and the leaves a few times with masking technique using Altenew inks. I stamped the images in two shades of pink and green, applied ink to the stamps from light to dark using the MISTI.


I also added the heat embossed sentiment and few clear sequins and droplets.




Here, I did something similar, but I used my favorite color combination.




For my last card, I stamped the layered roses and leaves using Altenew inks, and added details with Copic markers, polychromos pencils and white gel pen.

 Wow! All of your cards are amazing! I love how you created a wreath by combining an older stamp set and dies with a new stamp set and dies! It is so pretty! The feather card shows off this new, detailed feather stamp in this set. I love the colors you chose for it. All of your Story of Us cards are gorgeous! I love that rose stamp! Your last card doesn't even look like the same stamp set to me with the beautiful details you added. Wonderful job on everything you created!

  14. Whoa! My Heart Melted when I saw your Golden Feather cand Pink Roses Cards! Colors you chose to create your Golden Feather card reminds me of my visit to the Crazy Horse Monument where I saw many Dream Catchers with their feathers "Dancing" in the breeze as they hung from the ceiling. Pink Roses are one of my favorite blooms

  66. Wow, you really dug in to show how all the different crafting mediums could work with this stamp set! Thank you! When I first saw your wreath card, I actually thought you had done some colored pencil accents; you really managed to create that look with your watercoloring, and I love it. And as if that wasn't enough, the contrast between all your floral cards was stunning. I tend towards the watercolor, and I love how that one turned out, but I was surprised by how well this worked with the higher contrast version of copics and colored pencils. Thanks for showing that! Yet one more option that I'll have to explore.
