For my layout today I have combined three beautiful products from the new release: Frilly Frame DieMid-Century Frame Die, and Leaf Clusters Stamp Set and coordinating dies.

I started with die cutting the frames – I absolutely love the delicate and dainty look of these die cuts! I cut multiple of each, so I could layer them for a fuller look. Next, I stamped the foliage from the Leaf Clusters Stamp Set numerous times with the following Crisp Dye Inks: Aqualicious, Teal Cave, Coral Bliss, Ruby Red, Baby Pink, and Ultraviolet.

After cutting the photos using the same dies, I adhered them inside the frames with foam dots for dimension; I then tucked the stamped images behind each frame, making sure to create an ombre look by using two shades of the same color.

For the title, which I arranged around the photo in the middle, I used the Live Your Dream Puffy Alphabet Stickers to spell “Dreams do come true”. I also fussy cut pink flowers from one of the papers in the collection and placed them here and there to decorate the pictures.

I finished the layout with enamel dots in coordinating colors.

For my layout today, I combined three products from the new release: Ornate Foliage Stamp Set with coordinating dies, Everlasting Happiness Stamp Set, and Fine Bouquet Die. I couldn’t pick just one, and they look lovely together.

I started by stamping my images from the Ornate Foliage Stamp Set. For the outline, I used Altenew Permanent Black Ink, while for the flowers I went with Eastern Sky, Azurite, Wisteria, Firefly, and Just Green. I also added some yellow with Altenew Artist Marker in Warm Sunshine; I find that it brings in a happy pop of color 🙂 Once those were ready, I continued with the Everlasting Happiness Stamp Set. This time I didn’t add any color, as I liked the black and white contrast.

After arranging my flowers on the background paper, I felt like I needed an extra layer, so I used the Fine Bouquet Die to create sort of a “lace” look. I created two clusters on opposite sides of the page and placed my photo in between.

For the title, I inked the Mega Love die cut with some of the same Crisp Inks I used for the flowers to obtain an ombre effect. Two acetate butterflies and black splatters finished the layout.

To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 6 lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog by 5/15/2019 for a chance to win.

Today I’m bringing you a new layout featuring the Rose Spray Stamp Set and coordinating dies.

Like always, I started by stamping multiple images with a variety of colors. I chose Pink Pearl, Coral Bliss and Heart Beat for the red roses, Volcano Lake, Lagoon and Emerald for the teal ones, Just Green and Hunter Green for some of the leaves and Evening Gray and Moon Rock for others. Since my favorite technique is layering, I like to have many die cuts that I can use to create dimension and texture by grouping them into clusters.

For my background, I adhered Dotted Washi Tape to white cardstock that I had previously trimmed to measure 11” square. I only covered the top half, as I wanted to bring in a fun and unexpected element. I then matted it with a pretty aqua cardstock that kind of matched the color of the teal roses.

I hid the line between the washi tape and the cardstock with roses and leaves, alternating colors and using foam dots to adhere them in place. I arranged the photo in the middle and added two sentiments from the Live Your Dream Scrapbook Collection, while the additional wooden embellishments come from the Sweet Hearts Adhesive Wood Veener pack.

Paint splatters in coordinating colors finished the layout.

Now onto the prizes!!! To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 6 lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog by 4/22/2019 for a chance to win.
