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

Hello, crafty friends! Welcome to the Altenew Modern & Edgy Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway! If you just came from Daniel Diaz’s blog, then you’re on the right track. For the full list, kindly visit the Altenew Blog. Take a look at the unique designs from this August release:

I created a few cards for this release– some quite different from my older ones. Let me know which one you like the most.

FRESH BLOOM STAMP AND DIE SET
WOVEN STRIPES STAMP SET
LINEAR LIFE: DAYDREAMS STAMP SET

WISH YOU WERE HERE


Here is a card using 3 stamp sets from this release– The Fresh Bloom Stamp and Die set, the sentiment from the Linear Life: Daydreams stamp set and the Woven Stripes Stamp. I stamped 2 floral images using Versamark Ink and embossed them with Rose Gold embossing powder. Watercolor was used to color the flowers. I then fussy cut one of the flowers so that I can layer the petals behind the stamped image to create a bigger and fuller flower with actual layers.

Foam squares were used to make it look more 3D. I partially stamped the Woven stripes onto watercolor paper using Versamark Ink then embossed it with Rose Gold Embossing powder. I then watercolored the background using the leftover colors on the palette. Notice how I also colored the leaves that were on the white space and left the leaves uncolored on the colored background white. This way, I created more contrast.


DOODLE TRIANGLES STAMP SET
MODERN HELLO STAMP

HELLO FRIEND


For this card, I used the Doodled Triangles Stamp set and the Modern Hello Stamp set. 2 dye inks were used to color the triangle to create an ombre effect then this was stamped onto Neenah Solar White Cardstock. The Hello sentiment was stamped using Versafine Onyx Black and the friend with Versmark Ink so that I can emboss with Rose gold embossing powder. I added an orange border before adhering the whole panel to the teal card base using foam squares for dimension. This looks like a masculine card (which I rarely make ๐Ÿ˜„) — no flowers this time ๐Ÿ™‚


CONNECTED 3D EMBOSSING FOLDER
FANCY HUGS DIE

HUGS


For this card, I wanted to see the outcome of using handmade paper with the Connected 3D embossing folder. And since the handmade paper is lightweight paper as compared to cardstock, the intricate designs were more visible!!! Take a look at the design on the washi tape too!! So so pretty!!!

I also stamped the foliage image from the Fresh Blooms stamp set on Neenah Solar White cardstock then embossed it with Rose Gold embossing powder for added accent. The Fancy Hugs die was used to cut 2 layers from cardstock then the last one from the handmade paper with the gold foil on it. Sometimes, simple cards can be elegant, too. I will definitely be experimenting more using handmade paper. ๐Ÿ™‚


CRYSTAL WALL 3D EMBOSSING FOLDER

FRIENDS ARE OUR CHOSEN FAMILY


For this card, I used the Crystal Wall 3D embossing folder to create the background. I colored the Sisters of the Heart stamp image using the coordinating stencils with the following Distress Oxide inks–Abandoned Coral, Kitch Flamingo, Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky. The image was embossed with Pure White Embossing Powder. The sentiment was stamped on vellum with Versamark Ink and embossed with Antique Gold embossing powder.


HUGS


For my last card, I wanted to incorporate some glitter. I die cut the Fancy Hugs die 4 times and on the fifth, I added the gold washi tape. These were layered on top of each other for dimension. The background was watercolored using watercolor brush markers and I painted some foliage using metallic paints.

This is a FABULOUS and important set. Our daughter (and SIL) are missionaries in the Middle East, and I really “need” some of these images to make cards for her to reach out to new friends there. This is a must-have release for me, and seems to be super versatile and fun. Thanks for sharing your wonderful edge/modern art to inspire.
