Video : Altenew December Release Blog Hop & Giveaway!

I am very excited to be here with another fabulous release at Altenew and lots of beautiful products to share today!  If you are hopping along to celebrate then you should have arrived here from NICHOL’s wonderful blog.  Please scroll down for the video link and to find out how you can WIN!

I have four cards and an ‘unboxing’ video to share with you today.  For my first card I stamped out some Stunning Cosmos and watercoloured them with Zig pens.

I used the Birthday Builder sentiment set to ‘build’ my bespoke greeting on some Forest Glades Cardstock.

My next card is very clean and simple.  I used the Flower Arrangement stamp set to create some soft coloured blooms.

Then I added a simple white die cut sentiment using the co-ordinating dies.

This is a more ornate version where I added a Pale Gray background with a Striped Leaf Cover die overlay.

The sentiment was heat embossed from the Sentiments & Quotes stamp set and die cut with one of the Dot Labels dies.

I had a blast creating my final card, lots and lots of die cutting starting with a Halftone Cover die base cut from Lagoon Cardstock.  I created my very own ‘Pow’ speech bubble using the Inline Alpha dies.

And then to create the scene I added a portion of the Layered Cityscape B die.

And finally I popped up my little Ninja Invasion kickboxer, and you get to see this fun little fella in the video below.

My video is a little different today it’s  an ‘unboxing’ of the new Mini Blossom Die Cutting Machine, and it is so cute!
You can see my video here or Watch it in HD at Youtube.
