Altenew Educators “New Favorite” Blog Hop and Linky Party + Giveaway

Altenew Educators “New Favorite” Blog Hop and Linky Party + Giveaway

HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone and welcome to my blog! If you just came from Irina Fonina’s blog, then you’re on the right track. For the complete list and details of the hop, please visit the Altenew blog.

For this hop, we were asked to choose a new favorite product and mine is the Note for You Stamp and die set.

The bundle arrived just in time for Christmas, so I created some handmade Christmas gifts. I love that there are a variety of sentiments that will fit into a 3×3 card base. It also comes with a cute envelope die with an embellished flap! So cute!!! You can stamp or die-cut some borders for a very dainty look.

I used my Gelli prints as my base for all the cards. These were die-cut into squares slightly smaller than 3×3; I stamped the different sentiments using Versamark Ink and Pure White Embossing powder.

II also stamped a floral image from the Engraved Flowers stamp set on the front of the envelopes for added interest. The borders were die-cut using white cardstock and adhered to the top and bottom of the sentiments. These strips are so dainty and look like lace!!! I also included some wax seals created with the Blooming Bud and Delicate Blossom Wax Seal stamps in the gift set. 

I used the Note for You Stamp set for my second project, using the stamp lace borders instead of the dies. After stamping and embossing in white, Distress Inks were used in creating an ombre background. The sentiment was stamped, embossed, then die-cut.

I also used another favorite of mine– The Mix & Match Frames die set. 

2 of the dies from the Mix & Match Frames dies were used for this card. I layered the die-cut pieces and used foam squares to add dimension. The lacy border and dashed line were stamped using Versamark Ink then embossed with Pure White Crisp Embossing powder.
