Altenew Build-A-Flower: Wild Rose Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($200 in total prizes)

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Wild Rose Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($200 in total prizes)

Hello, crafty friends! Welcome to Altenew’s Build-a-Flower: Wild Rose Blog Hop and Giveaway!!! Thanks to my friend, Natasha Davies, for sending you over to my blog. For the complete list, please visit the Altenew Blog. You can find all the newest and latest from this link .

If you’re a lover of wild roses, this set will hit the mark! This stamp set features a beautiful wild rose with cupped semidouble flowers. The flower image includes an outline layer and three coloring layers for the petals and the stamens. There is also has a branch bearing five leaves with an outline layer and three coloring layers. Eight uplifting sentiments and a couple of mini flower clusters finish off the set. Take a look at this beautiful stamp and die set!

BUILD-A-FLOWER: WILD ROSE STAMP AND DIE BUNDLE

HANG IN THERE


BUILD-A-FLOWER: WILD ROSE STAMP AND DIE SET, ESSENTIAL SENTIMENT STRIPS DIE, MASKING PAPER, ROSE GOLD EMBOSSING POWDER, CARIBBEAN SKY DYE INK, LAPIS LAZULI WASHI TAPES, BRAD, VERSAMARK INK, NEENAH SOLAR WHITE CARDSTOCK, BLUE AND ORANGE CARDSTOCKS
  1. Stamp the floral image using Carribean Sky dye ink. Stamp the image again on masking paper and fussy cut the image.
  2. Mask the stamped image and stamp the floral image twice. (The image that was stamped first will be the one that will appear in front.)
  3. Add strips of the Lapiz Lazuli washi tapes to act as a border.
  4. Layer orange cradstock under the stamped image.
  5. Die cut the sentiment 5 times and adhere on top of each other.
  6. Add versamark ink to the brad and emboss with Rose gold embossing powder.
  7. Assemble the card.

I know this is a layering stamp set but I wanted to show you that you do not have to use all the layers. The outline stamp is a beauty in itself! I wanted to add a gold brad on the top right for an accent but didn’t have one so I added clear embossing ink to the surface of a silver brad then heat embossed it with Rose Gold embossing powder. By adding a strip of orange at the bottom, the sentiment on the left, and the orange flap with a brad on top, a visual triangle was created which is pleasing to the eye. The rules/guidelines in scrapbooking can definitely be used in cardmaking to create a cohesive look 🙂


HERE FOR YOU


BUILD-A-FLOWER: WILD ROSE, ESSENTIAL SENTIMENT STRIPS DIE, LAPIS LAZULI SLIM WASHI TAPE, MASKING PAPER, CARIBBEAN SKY AND PERSIAN BLUE DYE INKS, EMBOSSING PEN
  1. Stamp the outline stamp using Carribean Sky dye ink. Mask the stamped image and stamp again to create a background.
  2. Stamp the layered stamps following the guide exept for the 1st stamp so that the lightest part will remain white.

  4. Create a striped background using washi tape for the sentiment.
  5. Die cut the sentiment 5 times and adhere on top of each other.
  6. Assemble the card using foam squares and adhesive.

For higher contrast, I used complementary colors. The stamped flowers were layered on the left side with foam squares and to balance it out, I added the sentiment on the right side.

Want to make a bold statement on your handmade cards? The Fashion Monger Dahlia is the flower for you! This set features one six-layer flower and two three-layer leaves.

SENDING MY LOVE


I stamped the Build-a-Flower: Fashion Monger Dahlia using the Altenew dye inks from the Northern Shore ink set– Polar Bear, Icy Water. From the Enchanted Garden Dye Ink set, I used the Wisteria Lake and Hydrangea. The flowers were die cut using the coordinating die set. A blue cardstock was embossed using the Waffled Diamonds 3D embossing folder. The sentiment from the Ornamental Bliss stamp set was stamped using Versamark Ink and embossed with Rose Gold embossing powder.


SO HAPPY FOR YOU


Here’s a simple card I made using this stamp set. I made sure there was a lot of white space to give more emphasis to the flower itself. The leaves were directly stamped on the card front with Versamark Ink then embossed using Pure White embossing powder. Artist watercolor markers were used to color the leaves. The Fashion Monger Dahlia was colored using the following dye inks–Pastel Sunrise, Canyon Clay, Burnt Red, Sunray and Chamomile then cut using the coordinating die cut. The sentiment was stamped on black cardstock then embossed using Pure White embossing powder.

Altenew + The Daily Marker Watercolor Therapy Blog Hop & Giveaway

Altenew + The Daily Marker Watercolor Therapy Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hello everyone!!! I’m so honored to be a part of this Watercolor Therapy Blog Hop! If you just came from Jessie Banks‘ blog, then you’re at the last stop of the hop!

Altenew is collaborating with the amazing Kathy Racoosin from The Daily Marker to inspire crafters to find joy through coloring especially now. Kathy is celebrating her 18th Coloring Challenge until 11/22/2020. I hope you can join the fun and participate in the Coloring Challenge by coloring something and share it on social media using the hashtag #thedailymarker30day. The Coloring Challenge is a good excuse to find some YOU time. Kathy’s blog will have more info on the challenge. For this hop, I am featuring the Woodless Watercolor Pencil set that Altenew just released. Full details of the hop will be at the Altenew blog.


Aren’t these colors so gorgeous and vibrant? Below are some cards I made using these watercolor pencils.


THANKS FOR ALL THE THINGS I OFTEN TAKE FOR GRANTED


MATERIALS: Woodless Watercolor Pencils , Paint-a-Flower: Paeonia Japonica stamp, Antique Gold Embossing powder, Fancy Thanks Die, Paint-a-Flower: Calla Lily, Altenew Watercolor Paper, Neenah Solar white Cardstock, Versamark Ink

I’ve been wanting to use the Paint-a-Flower: Paeonia Japonica floral image for a while now. I created 2 cards using the image and I was quite surprised how easy it was to color using the Woodless Watercolor Pencils. Embossing the image makes it easier. I used the Antique gold embossing powder and Versamark ink to emboss the images on watercolor paper. Then, I colored the images directly with the pencils using different shades of blues and oranges.

With a wet brush, I activated the pigments starting from the darkest part first. I made sure to rinse the brush in between colors otherwise, the dark colors will dominate the whole petal. I did the same for the leaves.

Because the core of watercolor pencils usually are oil or wax based mixed with the pigments and binding agents, the pigments in watercolor pencils do not flow easily. You will need to pull or push the pigments to where you want the colors to go. For those of you who are beginning to appreciate watercolor, this might be easier for you cause there’s more control as to where the colors will go. For the background, I used the Dessert Night watercolor brush marker from the Tropical Fiesta Watercolor Brush Marker set. I love how the deep blue color made the image stand out more. I created an ombre effect for the cardfront.

Lastly, I die cut the Fancy Thanks onto the card front then made 5 more to layer on top of each other. The sentiment from The Paint-A-Flower: Calla Lily was stamped using Versamark Ink and embossed with Antique Gold embossing powder.


GRATEFUL FOR WHO YOU ARE FOR ALL YOU DO


MATERIALS: Woodless Watercolor Pencils , Paint-a-Flower: Paeonia Japonica stamp, Antique Gold Embossing powder, Paint-a-Flower: Calla Lily, Altenew Watercolor Paper, Versamark Ink, White Gouache paint, Distress Oxide Inks- Tea Dye, Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers

Here’s another card I made using the same coloring process but this time I chose a light colored background. The card front was colored using the following Distress Oxide inks– Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers and Tea Dye. I used a water sprayer to add droplets of water then added splatters of white gouache paint for added texture.

I made a boo boo stamping directly on the cardfront without checking if the distress inks were already dry. Even if I used an antistatic tool, the embossing powder was all over the place! Lesson learned…. next time make sure that the inked surface is completely dry before stamping. To correct the mistake, I just added a sentiment strip. I think it worked better cause it made the sentiment stand out more. I fussy cut the images and adhered them and the sentiment strip to the card front using foam squares.


PRAYING FOR YOU


MATERIALS: Weekend Doodles Stamp and Die set, Woodless Watercolor Pencils, Fine Frames Square Die , Rose Gold Embossing Powder, Altenew Watercolor Paper, The Stamp Market divider scraps

For this card, I stamped the image from the Woodland Doodles stamp set onto watercolor paper then embossed it with Rose Gold embossing powder. I used the pinks and oranges and browns to color the image.

I was organizing my stamps last weekend. The containers were narrower than the dividers so I had to trim the edges of the dividers to fit. The background of this card was made using the leftover laminated cardstocks from the dividers. Didn’t want them to go to waste! 😊

I die cut a thin gold frame using the Fine Frame die and adhered it on top of a cardstock that matched the card base. . The watercolored image was added on top of the frame using foam squares then the sentiment was layerd on top.


WISHING YOU ALL THE BEST


MATERIALS: Woodless Watercolor Pencils, Sweet Flowers Stamp and die set, Alcohol Ink, Yupo paper, Watercolor Paper, Rose Gold Embossing Powder, Decofoil Transfer Gel, Gold Foil

Here’s a quick CAS card. I scribbled 2 shades of blue on watercolor paper then with a wet flat brush, I spread the pigments from top to bottom to create an ombre effect. Water splatters were added before it dried. While waiting for it to dry, I used a distress tool to add alcohol ink onto Yupo paper for the card base. After the watercolored paper was dry, I then stamped the floral image using Decofoil Transfer Gel. I used a mini blending tool to add the gel to the stamp set. A Misti was used to make sure that I can re-stamp the image again. The stamp was cleaned right away to make sure that the gel does not harden on the stamp surface. After the gel dried (around 15 mins), foil was added using a Minc machine.

The stamped image and the sentiment were layered on top of the alcohol ink panel using foam sheets for added dimension.

Altenew Educators “Giving Thanks” Blog Hop and Linky Party + Giveaway

Altenew Educators “Giving Thanks” Blog Hop and Linky Party + Giveaway

Welcome everyone to Altenew Educators Giving Thanks Blog hop and linky party + giveaway!!! I’m so excited to be a part of this blog hop with my co-educators!!! The hop starts at the Altenew Card Blog. The complete blog hop list is at the end of this post in case you get lost.

We are in this unprecedented crisis. Yet so many doctors, nurses, technicians, scientists, policemen, grocery storekeepers, pharmacists, food delivery crew, bank tellers, couriers, garbage collectors, hospital cleaning staff etc. work tirelessly to keep us all safe and so that we can continue to live our new normal lives. I truly appreciate that the theme for this blog hop is thankfulness. In our own little way, we can express our appreciation and gratitude to these everyday heroes for their dedication and selflessness through our cards.

I love the idea of coming up with 2 cards using the same stamped images. I sometimes call it my yin and yang cards. The following pairs were done using the same stamp sets. I just varied the looks by using the negative and positive die cuts, changing up the placement of the flowers, or by cutting the die cuts in half (the split card trick was inspired by Jennifer Mcguire). Here are my samples:


THANK YOU AND SO THANKFUL FOR YOU CARDS


I loved coloring the Poppy Garden stamp images so I used it in 4 of my cards– warm colors for one set of die cuts and cool colors for the other set. I stamped all the images on watercolor paper with Versamark Ink then embossed with Rose gold embossing powder. The Tropical Fiesta and Winter Wonderland watecolor brush markers were used to color the stamped and embossed images. The images where then die cut using the coordinating dies.

Next, I stamped the biggest image onto Neenah Solar White CS using the Silver lake dye ink. I chose a lighter color instead of black so that the watercolored images will stand out more. Then I used the coordinating stencil to mask the stamped image so that I can overlap and stamp the second image. Always remember that whatever you stamp first will be the image that will look closest to you. Everything else will be behind the masked image so plan your stamping accordingly. I continued until I covered the entire paper using all the different stamp images.

I then temporarily adhered vellum over the stamped panel using washi tape so that I can glue the die-cut flowers on top following the placement of the stamped images. You can also use transparency as an alternative. Make sure you secure the two together using washi tape so that the vellum with the die cuts and the stamped panel will not shift when it goes through the die-cutting machine. Both sheets were then die cut using a rectangular die to create a frame.

The negative die cut frame was adhered onto an A2 card front using foam squares. The middle portion of the stamped panel was glued to the center of the card then the sentiment from the Ornamental Bliss stamp set was stamped on black cardstock and embossed with Rose Gold embossing powder. This was mounted onto the card front using foam squares.

The same thing was done for the 2nd card. I just made sure that the flowers aligned when I adhered the middle panel using foam squares. Sentiment for this card was from the Needlework Motif stamp set.


THANK YOU AND I APPRECIATE EVERYTHING YOU DO CARDS


For these cards, I watercolored the flowers using the wet on wet technique using warm colors. I loved the split card idea of Jennifer Mcguire wherein she adhered the elements in the middle of an 81/2 x 5 1/2 cardstock just like the photo below.

I then used a guillotine cutter to cut right at the center thus dividing it into two panels. I wanted a gold border for both panels to define the edges so I went ahead and embossed the fine frame die cuts with rose gold embossing powder.

First, I inked up the frames with Versamark Ink then I poured the embossing powder and embossed it with a heat gun.

Now I have frames that match perfectly with the embossed flowers.

I made sure to use foam squares to adhere some of the flowers for added dimension. I also did not put glue at the tips of the leaves and small flowers for a more organic look. To finish it off, the card fronts were adhered to top folding and side folding A2 white cardstocks.


I APPRECIATE EVERYTHING YOU DO AND WHAT A BEAUTIFUL BLESSING YOU ARE TO ME CARDS


For these two cards, I used the Regal Beauty Stamp and die set, Rose Flurries 3D dies, and Garden Picks 3d dies. The layers of the flowers and leaves were stamped using Altenew dye inks then these were die cut using the coordinating dies.

Leaves from the Rose Flurries and the Garden Picks 3D die sets were used for these cards as well.

Sentiments from the Needlework Motif stamp set were stamped using the Platinum crisp embossing powder. I used similar ink colors from the brush markers to create a mat for the sentiment.
