Altenew | November 2021 Sparkle & Shine Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello there, today sees the release of the new Altenew Sparkle & Shine release. What a pretty release! There are lots of new stamps, dies and stencils plus ink pads too. For the release, we are celebrating with a fun blog hop. More information on that below. 

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



My card today uses the new Altenew In the Woodland set. What a stunning set! There are two large florals in the set and I first stamped one of them from the Altenew In the Woodland Stamp Set on to a panel of white cardstock using Altenew Obsidian Pigment Ink. I took the Altenew In the Woodland Simple Coloring Stencil Set and placed the parts over the image, securing in place with memo tape. 


Using Altenew Small Ink Blending Brushes, I blended on Altenew Cherry Blossom Crisp Dye Inks for the petals, Altenew Golden Sunset Crisp Dye Inks for the centres and Altenew Green Fields Crisp Dye Inks for the leaves. I then die cut out the image using the Altenew In the Woodland Die Set


I took a white A2 card base and using an Altenew Large Ink Blending Tool, blended Cherry Blossom Crisp Dye Inks (Rubellite and Pinkalicious) for the top left hand corner, fading to white towards the bottom right hand corner. The sentiment was stamped using Obsidian pigment Ink and then the image added on top with Altenew Instant Dimension Foam Tape, cutting off the edges that overlapped. To finish off, I added a few Lucy's Bubbles. 


Next up are the new ink colours - Frozen Delights and Jewel Tones. These are available in mini size and full size. The minis are available in sets of six. The full-size ink pads are available in sets or individually. I used the mini sets today. The Altenew Frozen Delights Crisp Dye Ink Mini Cube Set consists of six mini cubes in beautiful pastel shades. 


The Altenew Jewel Tones Crisp Dye Ink Mini Cube Set consists of six mini cubes in gorgeous deep jewel tones. For both of these swatch tags, I printed off the name of the set on my computer and then die cut them in to tags using the Altenew Terrific Tags Dies. I placed the new Altenew Color Swatches Stencil on top and blended the colour using Mini Ink Blending Tools. 

This stencil is perfect for making swatches but also great to use to create patterns on cards and projects too! 


Last but not least are the new coloring books. There is one for markers and one for watercolors. Both have the same beautiful floral designs in each. The Altenew Watercolor Coloring Book has 24 pages of 12 designs (one with dark outlines and one with light) on 100% cotton 140lb cold press watercolor paper. 


I coloured one of the designs using Altenew Artist Watercolor 24 Pan Set, as well as Altenew Round Artists Watercolor Brushes. It was so fun to just sit and paint! I look forward to turning the painting in to a card soon! 


The Altenew Marker Coloring Book has 24 pages of 12 designs (one with dark outlines one with light) on 80lb white cardstock. I look forward to trying this one out soon!

    1. Sorry about that, the swatches were really just for showing how the stencil works and showing the colours as a whole set. I apologise. Yes, the Red Jasper is the orange colour and the red is Rhodolite. I am assuming that the Altenew website has better photos for each colour. Sorry about that.
