Altenew January 2020 Stamp / Die / Stencil Release Blog Hop & Giveaway + Video!

Today my video is all about Tartan, Och Aye!  But first, did you know

that this is part of a Hop celebrating a new release from Altenew and if you are hopping along you should have arrived here from AMBER’s fabulous Blog!

I have 4 cards and a video to share today starting with a little watercolor number using the Retro Plantines Stamp Set and some Watercolor Brush Markers.

Altenew - Retro Plantines - Hello and Hugs - Therese Calvird (card) 2 copy

I added a simple layered sentiment using the Hugs and Hello co-ordinating stamp and die set.

My next card uses Gradient Cardstock and the Parlor Palm Die Set with the Layered Floral Elements Die to create a bright floral ‘all over’ design.

The sentiment is heat embossed from the Retro Plantines set.

My most simple design is for a sympathy card and uses the fabulous Mod Vases Stamp Set and some leaves from the Vase Fillers Stamp Set.

Again I added a sentiment from the Hugs and Hello set but this time I heat embossed it on some Lagoon cardstock.

My final card and video uses one of my faves from the release (although seriously it is hard to choose a favourite) and it’s the Tartan background stamp set.  It’s a builder and you can create any colour combo that you want!

I added a sentiment with the Bold Alphabet Dies and the Super Script Stamp Set, both classic Altenew in my book lol.

  1. Great cards Therese. I thought of you as soon as I saw the Retro set. Knew you’d make a card. You’ve done a few with this theme in the past and I always love them. The tartan has to be my favourite though (so I’m glad you did the video), as a Scot now living south of the border, it tugs at my heartstrings ❤️

  2. This plaid die is so clever. I can see it being used for babies, hunters, fishers, Christmas, Easter and so many others. I would love to play with it.

  3. This is an awesome release and I totally love everything you’ve created with the new products! I also now have the bug to use those “seashore” colors in some projects. Love your designs and color schemes. Thanks for inspiring!!

  4. Your cards are always so refreshing, Therese! And, I love the tartan plaid that you created on the video. Such a great masculine card.

  5. I love that tartan background you created, love the colors you chose. That black and white hugs card is perfect too. It’s so hard to create those types of cards and you got it just right!

  6. Love the tartan background, perfect for the hard to make guy cards! Your other cards are all so different. I love the versatility of this release.

  7. Hi Therese, I love the layering dies so it’s really a treat to see what you’ve created with them! I enjoy your bold cards and agree with you on the classic products!

  8. Of course I love the tartan, just in time for Burns Night (Saturday 25th January) would love to get this set

  9. What a beautiful variety of cards! If I had to chose, the sympathy card is my favourite. I love the graphic, bold design with the pop of pretty blue.

  10. Your cards are always so beautiful and today is no exception. The first two hello cards are gorgeous and I love the tartan.

  11. I already ordered the flower background! Can’t wait to recieve it. I would also like to get the tartan set and the incredible floral set. Another great release!

  12. Wonderful release and wonderful presentations! I think I’ll be making ANOTHER big purchase from Altenew! (I should invest in them, I’d be making myself rich!) I think the tartan is going to be a favorite of mine, too.

  13. Love all the cards, but the tartan best because plaids are definitely my favorite. This one looks very easy to use. But then you make everything look easy to turn out perfect cards.

  14. wonderful creations Therese, I agree it is really hard to pick a favorite product, I especially love all the dies, every single one is fabulous. Thanks for sharing!

  15. So fun watching you make your favorite tartan. What a fabulous set and great ideas!
    Such a wonderful, versatile release. Something for everyone.

  16. I love your bold and clean designs for this release. The tartan plaid set looks like it will jump on to everyone’s wish list.

  17. Therese, I love the Tartan card you’ve put together with the Scottish words on it. Super cute & great colours. This is one of my favourite releases yet. Thank you for the video as well.

  18. Och aye the noo, Therese, tha’s a braw card. IN fact all of the cards are nothing short of fabulous. I was thrilled to see you feature the Retro Plantines set (that one is calling my name). Thank you, for sharing your awesomeness.

  19. beautiful cards, love the bold clean sympathy card, tartan card also, love the och aye – being a Aussie with Scottish heritage, definitely made me smile

  20. I didn’t think I needed the tartan plaid stamp until I watched your video; now I NEED it! Beautiful cards. I really love the one using the Layered Floral Elements dies. I have that set and I’m always excited to get new ideas for using it.

  21. This tartan caught my eye right off. I was glad you used the plantine also. That has some awesome possibilities too! You’re the best…

  22. Love the Tartan. Looked like it would be difficult, but your video makes it look easy! And thanks for the Scottish lesson. I will try it out on my trip there in the fall!

  23. Beautiful cards, love ALL your cards and this entire release. The tartan plaid blue and gray color combo is so pretty, thanks for another awesome video.

  24. I love your cards! I’m always anxious to see what you create. From the simplicity of the sympathy card to the fun of the tartan masculine card it is hard to choose a favorite.

  25. You stamped such a beautiful tartan. I love the cardstock colors you chose for the flowers in the Layered Floral Elements die. Thanks for sharing your expertise!

  26. OH MY GOSH! Such fabulous creations! I love the popped up hello and the beautiful pink flowers! The silhouette of the vase is great and I adore the plaid background! Fab, fab creations!!!!

  27. Cool, masculine, graphic and fabulous, Therese … love that colour palette! The non-video trio is gorgeous … wonderfully vibrant blooms … dramatic silhouettes with huge impact … and absolutely delicious leafy loveliness using Retro Plantines … my favourite set from this release! Hugs, Anita 🙂

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