Altenew | Craft Your Life Project Kit: Elegant Motifs Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello there, today sees the release of this month's Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit. This month is called Elegant Motifs and features floral motifs with lovely ornate details. I will talk more about the kit later but it consists of a stamp set, die set, slimline embossing folder and stencils. We are celebrating the release with a fun blog hop, more details on that below.

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.



I created a card using the stamp set and dies, and a tag using the embossing folder and the stamp set for the sentiment. As mentioned, there are simple coloiring stencils in the kit so that you can use them to colour the images with ink blending but I chose to use colour pencils for mine.


For the card, I started off by stamping one of the images from the stamp set in the Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit: Elegant Motifs. I stamped it on to white cardstock with Altenew Obsidian Pigment Ink and then let the ink sit to dry. Once dry, I coloured it using colour pencils. Keep your eyes peeled for more information on which ones I used later in the month ;)


I then took the coordinating dies and die cut the image out. I took a panel of white cardstock and adhered the image on top with Altenew Instant Dimension Foam Tape. I cut off the excess from the corner but left the top and side piece overhanging slightly. The panel was then adhered to an A2 white card base with more foam tape.


I took the sentiment from the Altenew Sentiment Strips 2 Stamp Set and stamped it on to black cardstock with Altenew Embossing Ink. I applied Altenew Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip and added to the card. I then embellished with a few Iridescent Jewels. 


Next up I wanted to create a tag using the embossing folder. This folder is slimline in size and fitted beautifully on the tag with the design in the centre. I started off by die cutting two white tags using the Altenew Terrific Tags Die Set. On one, I blended Altenew Sweet Dreams Crisp Dye Inks on top and then ran it through my die cutting machine with the 3D Embossing Folder. 


I took white pigment ink and blended this on top, just touching the raised areas. The clean white tag was adhered to the back. I took the sentiment from the kit stamp set and stamped it on to black cardstock with Altenew Embossing Ink. I applied Altenew Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip and added to the tag with Altenew Instant Dimension Foam Tape. To finish off, I added a few jewels and then twine through the top.
