Video : Altenew Stamp/Die/Ink Release Blog Hop & Giveaway!

Oh Yay, it’s time, Altenew have released some new wonderful stamps, dies and yes three new ink sets and I am so happy because they are bright, and you know how much I love bright!  We are all hopping along to celebrate and you should have arrived here from FLORA’s fabulous blog.

I made a total of three cards today, so scroll down to see them and the video that I have made showcasing the fab new Layered Kaleidoscope Cover Die as well as to find out how you can WIN!

I started the day by playing with the new ink colours and the Balloon Baby stamp set, and with my Misti’s help I had the colours added in no time at all.

I added some clouds from the Be a Lighthouse and a Faux veneer speech bubble with a cute little sentiment from Handmade Tags.Altenew - Baby Balloon - Handmade Tags - Be a Lighthouse - Wood Veneer - Lostinpaper (card) 1 copy

I went a little artsy with the Altenew shimmer sprays on my card panel before die cutting this fab leafy garland which I popped up on some green fun foam.

I added the word ‘hugs’ from Script Words and heat embossed another sentiment from Handmade Tags before adding some enamel dots.

My final card is quite bright and busy but I had a ball creating it.  I used the Layered Kaleidoscope Cover Die A along with some great Altenew cardstocks.

The flowers are stamp layered from the new Pretty Pansies stamp set and I heat embossed a sentiment from the Penned Rose set.Altenew - Layered Kaleidoscope Cover Die A - Pretty Pansies - Lostinpaper (card video) 1 copy

259 thoughts on “Video : Altenew Stamp/Die/Ink Release Blog Hop & Giveaway!

  1. Three terrific cards! Love the new leafy garland die and the card is sooo awesome! love the artsy look! The new ink colors look so beautiful! I can’t seem to stop buying new ink pads even though I have waaay too many lol!

  2. Great cards! I really love the bright, cheerful colours and such different designs – lots of inspiration!

  3. The cards are beautiful and I love the balloon stamp and die set and the script word dies. Good job show casing them.

  4. Such lovely cards. I always enjoy visiting your blog and especially how inventive you are with Altenew products.

  5. I like how the one balloon rises above the others. The balloons would be a great birthday card. Your use of enamel dots enhances the shimmer sprays.

  6. All three of your cards are so different from each other but they are all amazing! I think Baby Balloons is my favorite. I love how you can stamp the colors in place and then could go back and add details if you wanted. Although, your card looks perfect just like it is, which is also a major bonus for that set! 🙂

  7. Gorgeous cards, Therese! Love your artsy inking on the 2nd card…such a fun idea!
    Thanks so much for another great video tutorial and for a chance to win 🙂

  8. Fabulous cards, Therese! I love the way you grouped the balloons on the first card. The bright blue and orange combo on the pansies card is terrific.

  9. Three great cards! Love the way you grouped the balloons. That’s probably my favorite of the three but then I have a thing for balloons. 🙂 Thanks for the video and the inspiration!

  10. I love your videos and card designs! The extra time was well worth it with the inlaid technique, you have such an eye for color and detail and I like that certain techniques take centre stage without too many other things to distract in the whole design! Well done, Therese!

  11. All of these cards are fabulous, but the last one is my FAVE!!! That bright background with those beautiful blue pansies is gorgeous. Thanks so much for this inspiration!!!

  12. I agree with you, these Blue inks are gorgeous !!!! And your card is really a happy one with bright colors, I love it.

  13. All gorgeous, Therese … but I wanted to thank you for using this latest set of blues – I’m NOT a big fan of blue, but once in a while a girl needs it… xx
    =]

  14. Such a terrific release! The baloon set must be popular and can be so colorful, especially with the new imks!!

  15. You are so right — this is an amazing release. The cover dies are great and the pansies are beautiful. Can’t decide what I want more!

  16. What a great release. Love your creations using the new products. I especially like your ‘artsy’ hugs card. It is just gorgeous; you created such a natural/organic feel. TFS and inspiring!!

  17. What fun and beautiful cards. Love the leafy garland with the green fun foam underneath! Fun balloons too! Thanks so much.

  18. Your cards are so beautiful! Just lovely! Thanks for the inspiration and for the opportunity to win a gift certificate!

  19. All of your cards are lovely however the last one with the pansy and kaleidoscope is my favorite. It is bright and cheerful and unique. Thank you for sharing how you did this one.

  20. Thanks for telling us that these blue inks are brighter. I love my altenew ink, but didn’t know if I needed a 3rd set of blues – apparently yes, I do. I’m a sucker for beautifully, bright blues! Love all your lovely cards with this release. Amazing work!

  21. Theresa, these are great cards showing the possibilities for some of the new release elements. I love the bright pansy card–so cheerful. Thanks for sharing these–and the video, of course.

  22. Hi Therese ~ Your cards are all lovely and I especially like the 2nd with the leafy garland and spritzed colors. Sweetly understated. Thanks so much for sharing and have a wonderful weekend. ~HUGS~
    #kindnessmatters

  23. Wonderful cards! Love the sweet simplicity of the balloon card and the splatter on the second, and the bold color contrast on the third.

  24. Wow it’s a good thing I don’t have to pick a favorite between your cards, they are all so different, yet I really like all of them!

  25. Train ride home, yawning and bored, YouTube called and I found Therese! Half way home and my credit card is lighter – thanks Altenew – my day is brighter. Haha. Looking forward to getting those gorgeous pansy stamps. Great job Therese. Thanks.

  26. stunning cards Therese. Your video card is amazing. Love that bright orange background. and the blue pansies are totally awesome

  27. Love all of these cards Therese, particularly the one with the Pansies, they are some of my most favorite little garden flowers. The background die is awesome, thank you for sharing, these Altenew products are so hard to resist so, guess where I’m going now, ha, ha!!!
    Hugs,
    Maria Rodriguez.

  28. Beautiful cards, Especially love the Hugs card, Thanks for sharing the great idea – I really want to try it.

  29. All beautiful, Therese, but I’m still totally enchanted with your hot air balloon design. As if I’m floating up in the sky above them. I’m thinking it might have to do with those wonderful little clouds too…

  30. Love your cards, they are so very pretty!! That pansy stamp set is at the top of my wish list! Thanks for sharing .

  31. Wonderful cards! My favourite is the hot air balloons. So colourful & summery looking. Makes me want to be in one looking down on our beautiful coastline of BC. Thanks for sharing & for the chance to win.

  32. Love that artsy Hugs card!! But I am so partial to pansies … and bright colors … Just love your work! Thanks for sharing

  33. Love the Hugs card! Loving this release … the balloons, the pansies, the arabesque design … beautiful deisgns and projects by all you fantastic bloggers. Thank you for inspiring us all!

  34. Lovely cards! Great techniques too! Awesome Altenew release! Loving this blog hop with all it’s talent and inspiration! Thanks for sharing yours!

  35. Beautiful cards! Love the vibrant pansy with orange siecut background, the artsy leaf spray with splatter and the pretty hot air balloons scene. Thanks for another awesome video too

  36. Three more fabulous works of art! Thanks for showcasing the new inks😍….can’t wait for them! The Hugs card is amazing and I would love to case it💕💕.And the colors in the third one are stunning, love everything about it!!! THANK YOU!

  37. Three different cards,all three very beautiful. Great colors,stamps, dies and video. My favorite is the last card and the sentiment bounces back to you, as you are amazing. Thanks for sharing and inspiration.

  38. Oh my gosh you made some beautiful cards! I love to see how creative people get on these blog hops and boy did you!
    I love that yellow is one of Altenew’s new ink pad colors. It’s my favorite color and boy did you use it on those balloons. I love that card because it’s so colorful and because I love hot air balloons. We just went to a hot air balloon fest but because it was so windy that day we didn’t get to see any go off. Darn!
    I love all the splatters on your second card. I used to make splatter paintings in my art class in high school and they were so much fun to do. I love yours a lot.
    Your last card is so amazing I am drooling! LOL I love pansy’s and I had some beautiful ones growing from seeds 2 years ago. Last year I planted them again but those mutant ninja squirrels dug them up before they came up and really made a mess. I didn’t plant any this year. If I had your pansy card those squirrels couldn’t dig them up. You’re coloring is amazing and I love that bright background. That’s exactly the way I would do it. Me and colors, we just go along.
    Thanks for showing us your pretty and colorful cards and for giving us the chance to win something. I can’t wait to see what everyone else did on the hop.

  39. Your cards are all beautiful! I’m glad you showed the pansy stamping in the video. I have struggled in the past with some layering flowers but this one looks pretty easy! Thanks

  40. I am so happy to hear of your recent conversion and obsession with blues! It’s my ‘go to’ choice which I have to curb. Your pansies are beautiful, as is the finished project. Thank you.

  41. Love the balloons and how you used the clear bright colours but the pansies are a must have. Seeing the video how easy with the picking up tool to make a lovely background and your use of colour- perfection.

  42. Beautiful cards Therese and thanks for the tip of using the adhesive sheet–I would be fun to cut this out of many different colored papers and making a bunch of cards with rainbow type backgrounds. This release is awesome!

  43. I love the hot air balloon card, and have never noticed the clouds in the lighthouse set… until now. Your last card is definitely BRIGHT!

  44. Have already placed my order but unfortunately missed out on the pansy set. After seeing your card I think a “back in stock ” email is in order. Thanks, as always, for your wonderful cards.

  45. Love all your cards, these are really special! I really like the hugs card with the white on white die cut!

  46. All three cards are stunning, I love the brightness of the balloons and I just adore the blue pansy’s and the background. Thanks for sharing

  47. Fantastic cards! I also am excited by these beautiful new inks because they’re nice and bright! This new release will definitely create problems for my monthly crafting budget! I’m only sure what to pick first! Thanks for sharing your creativity¡

  48. Three wonderful cards. All different in theme and color palette/hue. What a creative mind you have and what a wonderful release this is to offer all these great ideas. Thank you.

  49. All three of your cards are gorgeous Therese! The orange and grey background that you inlaid from the die cuts looks so amazing and it really makes the blues in the pansies pop. I think the second card you created with the Altenew Shimmer Sprays is gorgeous, I love the artsy feel of it. Thank you for a great video tutorial and all of the fantastic inspiration.

  50. The leafy garland card is fantastic! I love the splatters and the hugs die. The other cards are great, too.

  51. Wonderful designs as always, I did not think I needed the kaleidoscope cover plate, but after seeing your project is going on my wish list😍 Thanks for the inspiration Therese!

  52. Your cards are so pretty! The pansy stamp set is gorgeous done with the new blue inks. Love the simplicity of the hugs card. Your video is fun and informative, thanks for sharing all three beautiful cards!

  53. Fantastic cards! Love the pansies! The balloons weren’t a favourite, but love how creative you were – might just have to grab those now too.

  54. All of these cards so beautiful, but I especially love that great design of your hot air balloon card. Thank so much for sharing these beauties!

  55. Hello Terese, your cards are so beautiful! I specially love the arty look of the hugs paint splatter card. I sure appreciate all the videos that you share on new tube

  56. WOW – WONDERFUL cards!
    They’re ALL FABULOUS colours and designs! The balloons are FUN, the pansies a DELIGHT … SO MUCH to LOVE … and NEED 🙂
