Video : Altenew Embossing Powders & Scrapbook Collection Release Blog Hop & Giveaway!

It’s time for another wonderful Altenew release and today we have soooo much to share!  If you are hopping along to celebrate you should have arrived here from SANDRA’s wonderful blog!

Today I focused on the new embossing powders (but here is also an amazing new Scrapbook Collection!) that is now available and a fun technique where I embossed onto coloured cardstock, it gives a different and often fun look!  I have a video showing the process, you can scroll down for that as well as to find out how you can WIN!

My first card is a bright one, how cool does the Razzleberry Crisp Embossing Powder look on the Autumn Blaze Cardstock!

Altenew - Pattern Play Circle - Doodle Blooms - Speech Bubbles - Lostinpaper (card) 1 copy

I added a spray of Doodle Blooms a snail from Garden Grow (the bird just didn’t feel like as much fun although that was where I was originally heading) and a Speech Bubbles sentiment die cut with the coordinating dies.

I had a whole other vision for this card until I saw what the Caribbean Sky Crisp Embossing Powder looked like on the Turquoise Cardstock

Altenew - Pattern Play Circle - Let the Wind Carry You - Lostinpaper (card) 1 copy

To me it looked so much like ‘bubbles’ that I couldn’t resist keeping it CAS and adding a die cut girl and sentiment from Let the Wind Carry You.

I created a video for my final card and adore the look of the Platinum Crisp Embossing Powder on the Real Gray Cardstock.

So that meant that I just had to use the flowers from the Adore You Stamp Set, I also added a sentiment from the Script Words Die Set and some Sultana sprinkles and called it done.

  4. Fabulous color combos, especially the Platinum and Gray…So elegant! Thanks so much for the video, and for a chance to win!

  5. great cards!!
    here I am having the same issues too…taking up the most time in making my cards is deciding where everything is going to be..and which paper as background..can take ages!!!
    Also just love to look at my design papers…is so much fun!!

  6. Beautiful cards – I absolutely love the hugs with card with the Platinum embossing powder with the gray card stock…..Stunning! That background looks great on all the cards with those beautiful new embossing powders. Thanks for the inspiration!

  7. Love these cards. The backgrounds are spectacular. Thanks for the reminder to use EP with my background stamps. So many techniques and not enough brain space! LOL

  13. I like that you used the same stamp background on 3 different cards, showing the versatility of this product. Your cards are lovely!

  14. All three are wonderful, Therese, but it’s the Adore You one that I’m pinning. I need to start making lovely backgrounds for my flowers and other images.

  15. LOVE how you used the embossing powders – with unique color combinations. I often get “stuck” using the same colors, etc & it help tremendously to see other options. Also, it makes it SO difficult not to order all the new embossing powders! Thank you for sharing your talent!

  16. These are all very pretty, so glad they have new embossing colors right as I am starting my Holiday crafting and I feel like non-traditional this year so they are perfect. Thanks for another great video, I always like watching them😊! Your grey card turned out fabulous, oh and I love the bubbles idea you had too!!💖AND the Razzleberry on orange is great too.

  17. Therese, these are beautiful cards. I watched the video first and loved the elegant card with the platinum embossing on the gray card stock — gorgeous. But I also like these other cards. I love the bubbles one — so simple, but so fun. Great sentiment, too. Thanks for all you share.

  18. Beautiful and fun cards! Love the new embossing powders – the bubble stamps are a fun way to show them off. Thank you.

  19. Fabulous ideas and techniques always seem to be here on your blog. Love your cards and this background technique using the colored card stock. Like you, I tend to collect patterned papers to look at (Lol!) and also, card stock in every color! My friend had the best comment! She said, “What! You mean I’m supposed to use this!” 🙂

  20. Beautiful Cards Therese love the bubble background. I think that stamp could be very versatile. Oh wow the embossing powders are soo pretty.

  25. The new embossing powder colours are amazing and took them to another level by using them on coloured card panels…such beautiful cards…!!!

  26. Your cards are always totally awesome, Therese, and these are no exception! Love the embossing: quiet yet dramatic. I never would have thought to use the raspberry on the orange, but it rocks! And love the last one’s mono look—elegant and simple, my kind of card!

  27. Oh my gosh Therese, I just love all the different ways you used this amazing background. Love all your brilliant creations!

  28. That circle background is perfect for the bubble saying and the girl. Fun, bright colors on the first card and elegance on the last. Lots of ideas to take-away!

  29. Love, love, love that raspberry EP on the orange! The bubbles card is so cute & the gray flowered is absolutely beautiful! Love them all!

  30. Love all three cards. The embossing colors are spectacular. I always use the same white, gold, silver, and clear. I am going to get out of my rut and get some glorious colors. Thank you for sharing.

  31. Oh wow, wonderful cards! So delicate and elegant! The new colors of embossing powder are fabulous and you’ve showcased them just beautifully! Thank you for great inspiration!

  32. I loved the hot pink color on the bright orange and then I kept scrolling. (Isn’t is sad how my fickle heart can change in a second!) The bubbles card and sentiment totally stole my heart! Of course I knew you could use embossing powder on colored cardstock…I just never actually thought to try it…now I have something else to do today besides cooking and cleaning! Thanks.

  33. Your cards are gorgeous. I love the idea of using embossing powders to make a background. Thanks for sharing your technique video.

  34. Beautiful cards. The platinum one is stunning. The others are just plain fun. Fun colors that are bound to make someone smile. Love the background stamp as well as the flower stam. Altenew does a fabulous job and your creations shows them off the best! TFS.

  35. I’m new to embossing and it’s inspiring to see such cute and fun items, things that even my 9 year old would love!

  36. All three of your cards are fantastic!! Love the fun colors of the first one, the whimsical design of the second, and the third (my favorite) is just gorgeous! Can’t wait to watch your video… you always do such a beautiful job. TFS your talent with us.

  37. Love al the colors of embossing powder! But my favorite is the Razzleberry Crisp Embossing Powder! Really love it on the Autumn Blaze Cardstock!

  38. Such fantastic cards! I love all the fabulous colours you used across all the cards and the different looks you created.

  39. I like this card. I will start with embossing (ordered a heat tool already) and have to choose a embossingpowder colour. the small circles in platinum on grey card stock is inspiring for me! thanks.

  40. Love the flowers on that card. I must say I have never thought of using coloured embossing on coloured card stock… interesting. Thanks for the Video.

  41. Love all your videos. You have a delightful self deprecating sense of humor which I share and enjoy. Love how you colored the flowers!

  42. Each of these cards are so lovely. Thanks for showing the colored powders on colored cards as well as the video with your helpful comments.

  43. I have never Scrapbook or use Embossing Powders before but after watching this amazing video I’m totally hooked on all these products 💓. I absolutely love the technique & look of the Embossing Powder. It is georgous and I’m ready to throw myself into this and give it try. Also, I love the new Scrapbook Collection! I never realized that there is so much beautiful and fun scrapbooking supplies available till I seen this video. Thank you so much for sharing 💓.

  44. Your cards are lovely. Altenew’s new embossing powders look fabulous! They show great detail and have such a smooth and silky finish. I especially like the platinum on the grey card stock for an elegant look.

  45. I love your cards, so bright and beautiful. My favourite is the one with the “I Adore You” flowers. Thank you for sharing and inspiring me to create 😊

  46. I am in love with those circles! I don’t know why but my favorite shape is a circle. There is a song that says “The world is a circle without a beginning and nobody knows where the circle ends”. They look so good as the background for all 3 cards. I love the girl blowing the bubbles. That is so cute! That little snail and the flowers are also so cute! I love cute cards but then I also love the white and gold and brown card because it looks so elegant. I am in love with the new embossing powders and when I win, that is what I want to get, some new embossing powders. Thanks for showing us you’re amazing cards and for giving us the chance to win something. I hope I win!

  47. What a variety of great cards. I love the platinum and razzleberry embossong powders. Such great colours. Those altenew flowers are gorgeous in grey. Beautiful card.

  49. All of your cards are amazing but I really love the one of the girl blowing bubbles. It reminds me of my own two little girls!

  50. Wow, beautiful cards! The colours and the images on the first card is so whimsical. Love it! The third card is just gorgeous in that colour combination. And I’m loving the platinum embossing powder. Your second card is my favourite!! The beautiful embossed background in those colours totally looks like bubbles. The silhouette of the little girl blowing bubbles is just perfect. Absolutely love it!!

  51. These embossing powders are gorgeous and the cards you’ve made with them are beautiful! Also love the family-based scrapbooking collection.

  52. I have been a big fan of yours for some time now Therese, and I love to hear the birds in the background when watching your youtube videos. I love your style of card making. 😊

  53. Those bubble backgrounds look great on all your cards – but that muted floral card is my favourite. I’m a flowers girl and that embossing in the background works beautifully!
