Altenew | Glint & Glimmer Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello there, today see's the release of the new Glint & Glimmer Collection from Altenew. This release is packed full of lovely new hot foil plates, embossing folders and stencils. Today I have two cards to share with you focusing on two of the new hot foil plates. We are celebrating the release with a fun, inspiration filed blog hop with prizes. Please see below for more details.

My first card uses the new Sparkle Bright stamp, die and hot foil plate. I found it was easier to line up by foiling first and then stamping, so I started off by foiling the Altenew Sparkle Bright Hot Foil Plate on to white cardstock with Spellbinders Rose Gold Foil and the Glimmer Hot Foil System. I then lined up the image from the Altenew Sparkle Bright Stamp Set on top and stamped it with Altenew Obsidian Black Ink

I die cut it using the Altenew Sparkle Bright Die Set. The image is one piece but I thought it would be fun to cut it in to sections and have it cascading from the top of a card base. The pieces were adhered with Altenew Instant Dimension Foam Tape on to a black A2 card base. I took the sentiment from the Altenew Sentiment Strips 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 then cut in to a banner using the new Altenew Sentiment Banners Cover Die. This also has a coordinating hot foil plate but I just used the die on it's own. It was adhered to the card with more foam tape and then I finished off with a few black pearls. 

My next card uses the new Gilded Rose plate. This is absolutely stunning and quite large in size so makes a big impact! I first foiled the Altenew Gilded Rose Hot Foil Plate on to white cardstock with Spellbinders Silver Foil and the Glimmer Hot Foil System. I then added ink blending on top. There is a stencil that you can use with the plate too. 

I blended Altenew Cool Summer Nights Crisp Dye Inks on top using an Altenew Large Ink Blending Tool. I spritzed on Altenew Iridescent Shimmer Ink Spray and let it sit to dry. The panel was cut down at an angle and added to a white A2 card base with Altenew Instant Dimension Foam Tape.

The sentiment, from the Altenew Sentiment Strips Stamp Set was white heat embossed on to black cardstock. It was then cut out again using the Altenew Sentiment Banners Cover Die and added to the card with more foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Altenew Essential Black & White Enamel Dots
