Video : Altenew February 2018 Release Blog Hop & Giveaway!

 

YAY!  It’s time to release some fantastic new goodies for Altenew (and if you were watching, you may have seen some sneaky peeks at Creativation…)  To celebrate we are hopping along and you should have arrived here from    VICKI’s wonderful Blog.  Scroll down to see my video and to find out how to win!

Today I have three cards and one video to share with you….

Starting with this glorious Birds of a Feather layering bird set and coordinating dies, you can stamp these beauties in any colour combo you want!

I used the Create a Wreath die set to frame my bird and white heat embossed a little sentiment from the Sweet Friend stamp set.

My second card is a little different, I stamped a bold graphic style background using the new Trigonometry stamp set and

I also added some Happy Blooms which I coloured simply with Artist Markers.

My final card has a video linked below showing how I added some simple shading to these beautiful flowers from the mini stamp set called With Sympathy.

I love that this mini set has a coordinating die set!

The sentiment is ‘classic Altenew’ and came from the new Crafty Life stamp set.
You can see my video here or Watch it in HD at Youtube.

  1. I love this card! So elegant in it’s simplicity! Thanks for the tutorial with the colored pencils also, another wonderful idea for our colored pencils and a way to take all those beautiful altenew floral stamps to a new level.

  2. Just like walking through an artist’s gallery today, Therese! Your bird? I’m wondering if your inspiration was perched outside your own window? The most beautiful of the Altenew bird kingdom!
    =]

  3. I love Altenew products, and when a stamp set has matching dies … awesome and so time saving! Your cards are lovely and in your video you make shading look so easy, I would have a hot mess 🙂 Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. Terese, I don’t know how you do it…… but just about every release you show a card that convinces me I need something. this release, it’s the Birds of a Feather. I wasn’t quite convinced, but your beautiful frame convinced me. Great job with the mini stamp, too. Beautiful cards, as always

  34. Such pretty cards! I love the inking in the oval opening behind the bird, just perfect, and that last card, so soft and lovely!

  35. Your cards are so adorable and have a soft look to them. Liked all three cards, especially how you used the triangle stamps with the flowers, very unique.

    So many wonderful ideas.
    Thanks so much for all this loveliness.
    Cheers
    Lisa

  38. I am so glad you chose to do this in this way! I have this tendency to forget that my pencils are an option—Duh!!! And thanks too for the tip about the sharpener. (I am pretty sure I heard it from you.) I got mine just in time for my new pencils I got for Christmas and I love it! So…double thanks to you today.

  39. All your cards are wonderful as usual, Therese. I love the use of Spicy Yogurt paper as a panel for the flowers and the pencil coloring added so much realism.

  40. What a fun mix of cards you’ve made. I saw the floral one on youtube, and I love the pencil additions to add that extra oomph to the image. But I really enjoy your other cards as well. The trig black and white background sets off those bright florals in such a fun way. I think I might need to try that sometime. Thanks so much for sharing your talent and creativity with us!

  41. Absolutely gorgeous creations! Your card has sold me on the Trig set! Wasn’t sure before but that awesome card really sold me!

  42. Beautiful cards! I haven’t done much with colored pencils in years and have been hesitating but this technique of adding pencils over a solid base looks very approachable. Thanks for sharing.

  43. Oh Therese, your cards always make me smile. That bird card is so sweet and well designed. Thank you for sharing these.

  44. Thank you so much for the video showing the coloring process using With Sympathy. I have not seen this done before and will have to give it a try for sure! Thanks for sharing your cards with us.

  45. Hi Therese. Love all your cards, but particularly loved the tiny stamp set. That flower is delicious. Loved what you did with all the new releases and thanks as always for sharing with us. From proud Aussie Bev. (so good to see your beautiful creations).

  46. I’m an idiot. I forgot to tell you that I am so impressed with your colouring of the stamp! What a difference it makes – it’s amazing. Did you know that the little video of the release of that with sympathy stamp set features YOUR card? How great is that? Congratulations. Sorry I forgot to say all that before.

  47. Absolutely Love this mini flower set and the use of prisma colour pencils with the solid stamped background. You always fund interesting ways to extend our use of products which we may not have used for sometime. Thanks for the inspiration.
    Margie from Adelaide. Australia

  48. What a lovely collection of cards. I love the different ways you found to put background texture behind the stamped and colored images. Each one different and so beautiful! You’re a gifted artist AND teacher of art! Love these (and that bird at sunset might be my favorite. Ha)

  49. Today is the first time I’ve seen your videos and I’m loving them! You have such an enjoyable style and love the way you laugh while your creating! Thanks for sharing!

  50. Beautiful cards. Love each and every one of them. Great use of textures. Thank you for the awesome colored pencils video, too!

  51. I love the sympathy card. It is so pretty. I havn’t used my colored pencils much. I need a good sharpener so I can get my colored pencils out.

Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
