Altenew | Modern & Edgy Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello there, I am delighted to be joining Altenew today to celebrate the release of the new Modern & Edgy Collection. This is such a wonderful collection! As usual, I have focused on florals for my projects but there are lost of wonderful sets in the release. This post is part of a fun, inspiration filled blog hop with prizes too. Please see below for details. 


For my first card, I am using the new Inky Lily set. This set features an outline plus layers to create the colour of the lily, plus the speckles that you usually get on lilies. I decided to go a bit different and use the speckles as more paint splatters on my card. I started off by first stamping the open lily from the Altenew Inky Lily Stamp Set on to white cardstock using Altenew Obsidian Black Ink


I die cut it out using the Altenew Inky Lily Die Set and then using it as a guide, I took a white A2 panel and stamped the slightly closed Lily on to it plus the leaves multiple times. I stamped the speckles on to the flowers using Sunray ink from the Altenew Golden Sunset Crisp Dye Ink Set and Rubellite from the Altenew Cherry Blossom Crisp Dye Ink Set.


Using the negative part of the (the actual positive pieces) Altenew Inky Lily Simple Coloring Stencil, I stamped the speckles again around the lilies, this time in Altenew Obsidian Black Ink. The panel was adhered flat to an A2 white card base and then the lily added on top. I took the sentiment from the Altenew Sentiment Strips Stamp Set and stamped it on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied Altenew Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder and heat set. It was cut in to two strips and added to the card with Altenew Instant Dimension Foam Tape


My next card uses the new Fresh Bloom set. This set is so pretty and modern but elegant too. I started off by stamping the outline from the Altenew Fresh Bloom Stamp Set on to white cardstock with black ink. I then stamped the layers of the flower using Altenew Shades of Purple Crisp Dye Ink and the insides with Altenew Green Fields Crisp Dye Ink. The leaves also use these inks. 


The flowers and leaves were die cut using the Altenew Fresh Bloom Die Set and simply adhered to an A2 white card base. I used glue for the leaves and Altenew Instant Dimension Foam Tape for the flowers. I took the sentiment form the set and heat embossed it on to black cardstock. I cut it in to a strip and added it to the card with more foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Raindrops. 


My next projects use the new Rose Bouquet 3D Embossing Folder, as well as the new Mixed Media Inks. The Mixed Media Inks are pigment based and can be used for lots of different things - you can use them as I have for simply ink blending and adding lighter colours over darker ones but you can also stamp them on to fabric and use them for lots of mixed media techniques. 


I started off my card by taking a panel of white cardstock and using Ink Blending Tools, blended Altenew Glacier Caves Pigment Ink Set on top. I concentrated the darker colours at the bottom, moving to lighter at the top. I then ran the piece through my die cutting machine with the Altenew Rose Bouquet 3D Embossing Folder


I took the lightest shade of the inks (Arctic) and swiped it over the raised areas of the panel (direct to paper). This highlighted the embossing but kept the background a darker colour. Due to the inks being pigment, I did heat set the panel before adhering on to an A2 white card base. I took the new Altenew Fancy Hugs Die and cut it three times from white cardstock with Altenew Double Sided Adhesive Sheet on the back. They were stacked up and added to the card. To finish off, I added a few white dots from the new Altenew Essential Black & White Enamel Dots pack.  


I couldn't resist creating a tag too! I took an Altenew Terrific Tag Die and die cut it from white cardstock. Using Ink Blending Tools, I blended on Altenew Summer Afternoon Pigment Inks. I concentrated most of the colour in the bottom left hand corner, moving lighter towards the top right. I then ran it through my die cutting machine with the Altenew Rose Bouquet 3D Embossing Folder


This time, I swiped the two middle shades (Caramel Toffee and Warm Sunshine) over the embossed areas before heat setting it. I took the sentiment from the Altenew Sentiment Strips Stamp Set and stamped it on to black cardstock with Versamark 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 foam tape. To finish off, I added black enamel dots from the Altenew Essential Black & White Enamel Dots pack

VIDEO | MFT Camp Create - Delightful Die Cutting

Hello there, have you been participating in MFT's Camp Create? It is a five day event where MFT is sharing crafty ideas and challenges and you can win a prize by participating! Head over to the blog to find out more details. Today is all about Delightful Die Cutting and I am delighted to have a video to share with you where I have created a wreath using layered die cutting. 


I started off my card by die cutting the elements for the wreath in advance. I cut the MFT Grande Greenery Solid Die-Namics from MFT Sno Cone Cardstock, MFT Cornflower Cardstock and C9 Midnight Blue Cardstock four times each. I also die cut the MFT Grande Greenery Outline Die-namics four times from MFT Translucent Vellum. I took an A2 white card base and using a circle die as a guide drew a faint pencil line circle to guide me for the shape of the wreath. 


I cut the Grande Greenery die cuts down so that I only used the top part and then adhered them one under and other until the wreath was complete. With the darker blue colour, I also popped in the vellum ones but slightly off-set for more interest. I then die cut the MFT Sweet Hello Die-namics three times from white cardstock (with adhesive sheet on the back) and sacked them up. It was added on top of the wreath. 


I took a sentiment from the MFT Bitty Holiday Wishes Stamp Set and stamped it on to more white cardstock with MFT Extereme Black Ink. It was die cut out using an MFT Skinny Strips Die-namics. I added foam tape to the centre and then adhered that below the hello. To finish off, I die cut the MFT Sweet Snowflakes Die-namics from MFT Silver Sparkle Cardstock and added them to the wreath, followed by a Bubble to the centre of each. 


While I was creating the card, I thought it would be fun to create wreaths in different colours and use different elements (instead of the snowflakes) to embellish it. I thought it would look lovely with hearts, stars, flowers etc. Sadly, I only had time to make one other card, so I went with a birthday star theme.


I created the wreath in the same way as the first card but this time cut the Grande Greenery Solid from MFT Black Licorice Cardstock and splattered on Dr Ph. Martin's Bleed Proof White paint on top. I cut the Grande Greenery Outline from the same MFT Translucent Vellum. They were alternated to complete the wreath. The sentiment on the strip is from the MFT Balloon Bouquet Stamp Set and the stars from the MFT Slumbering Sloths Die-namics

Hero Arts August 2021 My Monthly Hero Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello there and welcome as we celebrate the release of the Hero Arts August 2021 My Monthly Hero Kit and Add-On products. The theme this month is Color Your World In Friendship and there are lots of opportunities to add colour to your projects, as well as send encouragement to friends too. This post is part of a fun, inspiration filled blog hop with prizes too. More information on that below. 


For my card using the main kit, I decided to create a love you card. I first took a panel of white cardstock and a panel of masking paper. I took the Hero Arts Nesting Hearts Infinity Dies and cut one from the panel of masking paper. This piece was then added on top of the cardstock panel. I placed the stencil from the Hero Arts August 2021 My Monthly Hero Kit on top, securing in place with tape and then using Hero Arts Ink Blending Brushes, blended Reactive Inks on top. 


I used Hero Arts Grape Slush Reactive Ink, followed by Hero Arts Blue Hawaii Reactive Ink and then Hero Arts Pool Party Reactive Ink. The stencil and mask were removed. I then took the love fancy die from the kit and die cut it from the panel. I also die cut it another 4 times so that I could stack them up for dimension. I added the panel to a top folding A2 card base and then added the letters inside for the inlay. 


To create the eclipse, I added the stenciled letters on top. I then took one of the sentiments from the kit stamp set and masked off the word 'you'. It was stamped on to Hero Arts Pitch Black Cardstock using Hero Arts Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink. I applied Hero Arts White Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip and added to the card. 


My next card uses two new add-on sets. I started off by die cutting the Hero Arts Rays of Color Window Fancy Die from Hero Arts Dove White Cardstock with adhesive sheet on the back. I then cut the die a further 13 times from various shades of Hero Arts cardstock to create a rainbow of colour. I adhered the outline piece to a top folding A2 card base and then using Hero Arts On-Point Precision Glue, adhered the colourful pieces inside for the inlay. 


I took the Hero Arts Paper Hug Stamp & Cut XL and die cut the word happy three times from Dove White Cardstock, they were adhered one on top of another and added to the card. I took the stamp set and masked off a sentiment to read 'here is a paper' and stamped it on to Hero Arts Pitch Black Cardstock with Hero Arts Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink. I applied Hero Arts White Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip and added to the card with foam tape.

Hero Arts | My Monthly Hero August 2021 Countdown

Hello there and welcome as we countdown to the release of the Hero Arts August 2021 My Monthly Hero Kit and add-on release, which are out tomorrow. The kit this month is all about colour! It is called Color Your World in Friendship and there are lots of opportunities in the kit for lots of colour, but you can use it in lots of different ways too. Be sure to check out the Hero Arts Blog for lots more inspiration! 


For my card, I started off by die cutting the hand dies in the kit from cardstock. I used white cardstock for the hand on the left and the hand on the right from the Colors of Earth Papers (that are an add-on product this month). I then used them as a guide to mask off the areas around them on a panel of white cardstock. 


Using Ink Blending Tools, I blended Reactive Inks inside of the masked area. I used Taffy, Creamsicle, Lemon Drop, Key Lime Fizz, Splash and Thistle. I then removed the masking tape and stamped the sentiment from the kit stamp set below, using Intense Black Ink


I then cut a further two hands for each side so that I could layer them up for dimension (three high in total). They were adhered around the ink blending to create a heart of rainbow colours in the centre of the hands. The panel was then simply adhered to a top folding card base with tape runner.

Sunny Studio | Birthday Cupcake & Cactus

Hello there, I am delighted to be back guesting over on the Sunny Studio Blog today. When I saw the latest release, I fell in love with everything! What an amazing release! I had to narrow down what I wanted to use, so for today’s cards, I am using the fabulous Cupcake Shape Dies, Chloe Alphabet Dies and Looking Sharp. Perfect for Birthday cards, which is what I am sharing with you today.


My first card uses the fabulous Sunny Studio Cupcake Shape Dies. I started off my card by die cutting the cupcake base card twice from white cardstock, as well as the frosting, candle and sprinkles. I then cut the cake and the cupcake wrapper from a kraft cardstock. Using Copic Markers, I coloured the elements to add texture, depth and shading (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area). I also added highlights with a white gel pen.
 

Although you can adhere the elements directly to the cupcake card base (or leave it off, if you want to add the cupcake to a traditional card base), I decided to piece the elements together first and add tape to the back to hold them in place. I then added foam tape and adhered the pieces, as one, to the cupcake card base. I took the back portion of the card base and made a score line a quarter of the way down. I adhered this piece to the back of the front base, so that the card can stand up and open easily.
 

I took the sentiment from the Sunny Studio Looking Sharp  Stamp Set, masked it off so that only ‘birthday’ would stamp and stamped it on to white cardstock with black ink. I coloured the piece with a matching Copic Marker (V12) that I used on the cupcake and cut it in to a strip. It was added to the card with foam tape. I took the Sunny Studio Chloe Alphabet Dies and cut them from white cardstock, as well as Tonic Crystal Glitter Cardstock. The letters for ‘wishes’ were layered up so that the glitter letter was adhered to the white cardstock one (for extra dimension) and then added them to the card. 
 

My next card uses the Sunny Looking Sharp Stamp Set. This is another really fun set! I love that the set has faces that you can stamp on to the cacti. You can stamp them on the cactus themselves, on to the pots like I have or not at all. So versatile! I started off my card by stamping three of the cacti on to white cardstock with black ink. I also stamped the party hat and bow.


They were coloured with Copic Markers and die cut out using the Sunny Studio Looking Sharp Dies. I set them aside while I worked on my background. I took an A2 white card base and masked off the edges. Using ink blending brushes, I blended on Tim Holtz Black Soot Distress Ink at the bottom and Peacock Feathers at the top. I removed the masks and then stamped the sentiment from the set at the top, using more black ink.
 
 
The cacti were adhered with foam tape at the bottom. I felt like the scene was missing something, so I took the balloon image from the Sunny Studios Oceans of Joy Stamp Set and stamped, coloured and die cut it. I drew a line from the cactus with a Copic Multiliner and then adhered the balloon on top with foam tape. To finish off, I added white gel pen highlights.

COPIC MARKERS: Cupcake wrapper - E59, E57, E55, E53, E51. Cupcake cake - E59, E57, E55. Cupcake frosting - V12, V01, V000, V0000. Sprinkles - V17, V15. Candle - V17, V15, V12, Y17, Y15, Y11. Left hand side cactus - G28, YG17, YG25, YG03, YG01, V17, V15, V12. Middle cactus - G28, YG67, YG63, G82. Right cactus - G28, G17, G09, YG09, YG07, YG01, V17, V15, V12. Pots & party hat - BG49, BG15, BG13, BG11. Balloon - V17, V15, V12. 

That cupcake frosting looks so yummy ... good enough to eat! ;) Although I coloured mine with markers, I think it would look great ink blended or cut from patterned paper too. This die does fit in to a an A2 sized envelope, as long as you place the candle low enough down. For more inspiration using the sets, please head over to the Sunny Studio Blog. Thank you so much for stopping by today, I really do appreciate it. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Spellbinders | Dancin' Gnome

Hello there, I am back today to share anther card using the Be Merry Collection from Spellbinders. If you didn't see my first card using the collection, you can see it here. Today I am using the super cute Dancin' Gnome set. The legs of the gnome are made so that if you want to, they can move so it looks like he is dancing. I didn't do that on my card but it is a great feature and wanted to mention it! 

I started off my card by creating the background. I took a panel of white cardstock and blended Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks on to it. I used Shaded Lilac at the bottom and Wilted Violet at the top. I then spritzed on Tim Holtz Picket Fence Distress Spray Stain, followed by Sparkle Sheer Shimmer Sptitz and set the panel aside to dry. I took the Spellbinders Dancin' Gnome Etched Dies and die cut them from Spellbinders cardstock. I used Snowdrift for the gnome's moustache, beard and legs.

I used Bearly Peach for his nose and hands, Purple Mist for his hat and legs/tights and Lilac Blossom for his body, arms and shoes. All the pieces were assembled with Bearly Art Glue. I also die cut the tree that comes in the set from Fern, with Snowdrift for the snow and Timber for the trunk. As well as Timber and Portobello for the tree stump for the gnome to stand on. I adhered the background panel to an A2 white card base with tape runner. I then cut a snowbank to add at the bottom. 

I popped the tree behind it and added the tree stump on top with Bearly Art Glue. I then added the gnome with foam squares. I took the snowflake from the Spellbinders Chill Bear Etched Dies set and cut it from Altenew Glitter Cardstock. It was added to the gnome's hat. I took the sentiment from the Spellbinders Mini Christmas Greetings Stamp Set and heat embossed it on to black cardstock with white embossing powder. It was cut it to a strip with the die and added to the card with thin foam tape. To finish of, I added a Spellbinders Silver Mix Color Essentials Gem to the centre of the snowflake.

Although the set is called Dancin' Gnome. I actually think he might be a gonk? I think gnomes have a face but gonks don't? Either way, I think he is super cute! Thank you so much for stopping by to see me today. I really do appreciate it. I hope you are well and still staying safe. Take care!

Hero Arts | Decorate a Unicorn Cake!

Hello there, I am over on the Hero Arts Blog today, sharing a card using the Decorate A Cake set for a shaker card. I thought it would work really well for the current Stay Crafty With Hero Challenge which is to make an interactive card. 


I started off by stamping the cake from the Decorate A Cake set on to a panel of white cardstock. I die cut it out out with the coordinating dies and then used both pieces for the card. I ink blended the cake with Reactive Inks in rainbow colours and fussy cut it out with scissors (so there was no border). I then used the cut out panel as a guide to adhered the cake on to the front of a card base. 


I stamped and heat embossed the unicorns eyes on to an Acetate Card Panel and then added this to the back of the window panel. I added foam tape to the back and then before adhering it to the card, I added Snowfall Glitter on top of the cake. I then decorated the cake with the ears, horn and flowers. The sentiment was heat embossed from the Sending Love Mail set.

Spellbinders | Be Merry Chill Bear

Hello there, today I have a card to share with you using the new Chill Bear set from the Spellbinders Be Merry Collection. Spellbinders have released lots of new Christmas/holiday collections and so I have lots of cards to share with you over the next few months. I thought I would start with this one as it is so cute!


I started off by creating the background as I knew that it would take some time to dry. I took a panel of white cardstock and placed the MFT Drifts & Hills Stencil towards the bottom, securing in place with Spellbinders Best Ever Craft Tape. Using Ink Blending Tools, I blended on Distress Oxide Inks in Blueprint Sketch, Peacock Feathers and Salvaged Patina. With the stencil still in place, I sprayed on Tim Holtz Picket Fence Spray Stain, followed by Sparkle Sheet Shimmer Spritz. 


I removed the stencil and set the panel aside to dry. Whilst it was drying I die cut and assembled my bear. I took the Spellbinders Chill Bear Etched Dies and cut the body and leg from Spellbinders Snowdrift Cardstock, the muzzle from Spellbinders Bearly Peach Cardstock, the cheek and inside ear from Spellbinders Pink Sand Cardstock and the eye and nose from Spellbinders Onyx Cardstock. The pieces were assembled with Bearly Art Glue. I then cut his scarf from Altenew Ocean Reflection Glitter Cardstock and adhered that on top. 


The background panel was adhered to an A2 white card base with thin foam tape. I then added the bear on top with Foam Squares. I took two sentiments from the new Spellbinders Mini Christmas Greetings Stamp Set (also from the Be Merry Collection) and stamped them on to Spellbinders Onyx Cardstock with FSJ Clear Pigment Ink. I applied FSJ White Embossing Powder and heat set. They were cut out using the die that comes with the stamp set and added to the card with foam tape. To finish of, I added a few Spellbinders Silver Mix Color Essentials Gems

VIDEO | Clearly Besotted July & August Release Preview

*This is my second post of the day, please see below for my Simon Says Stamp post*

Hello there and happy Clearly Besotted release day to you! As mentioned earlier in the week, there were manufacturing delays with the stamps. So instead of just delaying the July release, we thought we would combine the July and August releases for one bumper release! There are 12 stamp sets releasing today at 8pm BST. 


The sets can be purchased separately, or as a bundle (bundle exclusive to Clearly Besotted). The sets can be purchased from the Clearly Besotted Shop (UK based), Simon Says Stamp (US based), Card Nouveau (based in Belgium), ArtCreatiu (based in Spain) and Cloud9 Crafts (based in the Netherlands). The sets release at 8pm BST tonight. Here is a look at all of the sets, plus a recap of the samples that I made:

Since the release is so big (yay!) and there was a delay with us receiving them, I unfortunately didn't get a chance to play with a lot of them for the teasers. I do plan on sharing more cards later in the month, as well as next month too using some of the other sets that I didn't get to play with. For more inspiration, please head over to the Clearly Besotted Blog, Keren and Lisa and our wonderful guests this month Alberto, Francine and Mona. I hope you have enjoyed seeing my teasers over the last few days and happy shopping if you shop the release! Take care!
