Altenew | Craft Your Life Project Kit: Dynamic Blossoms Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello there, today I am excited as the new Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit releases today! These are such beautiful kits and today's is no exception. I love those bellflowers! The kit, as always, consists of a stamp set, die set, stencils and embossing folder. More on the kit below! This post is part of a fun, inspirational blog hop with prizes. Please see below for more details.

I have created a card and tag for today, using all of the products from the kit. For the card, I started off by stamping the large bellflower images from the Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit: Dynamic Blossoms stamp set, using Altenew Obsidian Pigment Ink. I then placed the stencils in the kit on top, and added ink blending with Altenew Small Ink Blending Tools for the first layer. 


I used Altenew Enchanted Garden Crisp Dye Inks for the flowers and Altenew Green Valley Crisp Dye Inks for the stem and leaves. I then stamped the rest of the layers using the same inks. It was die cut using the coordinating die in the kit. I also die cut the hello word from the set multiple times from purple cardstock with Altenew Double-Sided Adhesive Sheet on the back. I also die cut it from white. 


They were layered up one on top of another. I had planned on doing it all purple but I felt it got lost, so added the white on top. I think it looks quite cool having the purple underneath! I took an A2 white card base and masked off the edges. Using an Altenew Large Ink Blending Tool, I blended on Enchanted Garden Ink, more towards the right hand side. The tape was removed and then image added on top with Altenew Instant Dimension Foam Tape


I took the hello word and added that to the card. I then stamped the sentiment from the Altenew Flower Vine Stamp Set 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. To finish off, I added white enamel dots from the Altenew Essential Black & White Enamel Dots set. 


If you know me, you know that I cannot resist a tag! I die cut the Altenew Terrific Tag Die twice from white cardstock (one for the front, one for the back). On one, I blended Altenew Enchanted Garden Crisp Dye Ink and then ran it through my die cutting machine using the embossing folder in the kit. I spritzed it with Altenew Iridescent Shimmer Ink Spray and set it aside to dry. 


I die cut the 'you' word from the die set three times from white cardstock (with Double-Sided Adhesive Sheet on the back) and stacked them up. It was added to the tag. I then took the sentiment from the stamp set and heat embossed it on black cardstock. It was cut in to a strip and added to the tag, popping it underneath the loop on the 'y'. To finish off, I added twine through the top of the tag.

CRAFT YOUR LIFE KIT: DYNAMIC BLOSSOMS

Bring sweet smiles to your loved ones with a delightful kit of crafty goodies. The stamp set features a beautiful inflorescence of bellflowers. The outline layer is drawn with beautiful details for coloring, stamped as is, or layered with the coloring layers. The stamp set includes two coloring layers for the flowers and one for the leaves. For extra diversity, we have separated the leaves at the base of the flowers so you can turn these bellflowers into a variation of daffodils!
