Altenew | Craft Your Life Vintage Tapestry Project Kit Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello there, today sees the release of this month's Craft Your Life Project Kit. This month is Vintage Tapestry and it is so pretty! I love the vintage look of the roses and swirls in the sets. There is more information on the kit below but as always, it consists of a stamp set, die set, stencil and embossing folder. We are celebrating the release with a fun, inspiration filled blog hop with prizes. Please see below for more details. 

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



I created a card using the stamp set, dies and stencils. I also created a tag using the stamp set, dies and embossing folder. For the card, I started off by taking the layering stencils (there are four) from the Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit: Vintage Tapestry. I placed the first one on to the front of an A2 white card base and secured with Altenew Satin Masking Tape


Using Altenew Small Ink Blending Tools, I blended shades of Altenew Rock Collection Crisp Dye Inks for the leaves and stems. I then blended shades of Altenew Cool Summer Night Crisp Dye Ink for the flower petals. I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set on top with Altenew Obsidian Pigment Ink


I took the rose and leaves from the stamp set and stamped them on to more white cardstock using the same inks that I used with the stencils. They were die cut out with the coordinating dies and the leaves added to the card with tape runner. The rose was added with Altenew Instant Dimension Foam Tape. To finish off, I added a few Iridescent Jewels. 


I cannot resist a tag, so I first cut an Altenew Terrific Tag Die from white cardstock and then ran it through my die cutting machine inside the embossing folder in the kit. When making the card, I stamped extra leaves and another rose, so I die cut them out and added them to the tag. 


I took the sentiment from the set and stamped it on to black cardstock with Altenew Embossing Ink. I applied 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 twine through the top of the tag and a few jewels.
