Altenew February 2020 Stamp / Die / Stencil / Cutting Mat / Artist Watercolor 24 Pan Set Release Blog Hop & Giveaway + Video!

Have you seen the new addition at Altenew, I’ve made a video of the unboxing and I  made a very easy card!  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 KELLY’s fabulous Blog!

I have 2 cards and a video to share starting with a cute Alpaca! I did some simple Artist Marker colouring  and popped him up on a Dotted Diamonds embossed background.

And I thought this sentiment from the Stone Mosaic set was perfect!

My second card started because I was swatching out the new Artist’s Watercolors, this is a 24 half pan set and each colour coordinates with the Altenew ink colour families!

I did some very simple sploshing of colour and stamped the Exotic Garden bouquet overtop.  I popped it on some design paper from the Verdant Walk paper pack and added a simple sentiment from the Ornamental Bliss Stamp Set.

  1. Great cards Therese. Especially love the Alpaca. That’s a great background stamp too. It’ll be so useful. Thank you for keeping me inspired❤️

  2. Love the ease of watercoloring a flower design this way. Thank you. You’re so clever and it looks beautiful. The alpaca card is so cute and I love the sentiment!

  3. I love both of your cards, Therese, but the ‘light bulb” part for me was white embossing the dotted diamonds background!

  4. It’s always so exciting to stop by here. Love what you did with that alpaca. The embossed BG is super. And your yellow hello card is certain to brighten everyone’s day – especially the recipient’s.

  5. Super cute alpaca card, loving that background too. The water color splashed Exotic Garden flowers looks so pretty, especially with the pattern paper background.

  6. Your exotic garden is gorgeous! I love how you watercolored areas and then stamped! Also not surprised you picked the alpaca – he’s just the cutest!

  7. Gorgeous cards Therese. Love how you placed your alpaca and such a cool sentiment. Awesome background. Love the watercolour effect you got for that beautiful floral bouquet. Great dp for the background and nice splatters!

  8. Wonderful cards Therese, love the llama and that background looks so versatile. I need to try this way of colouring flowers too, you make it look so easy! Cathy x

  9. Gorgeous cards again Therese. The alpaca is so cute. I hope you made a second card using the florals you cut off!? lol They were gorgeous.
    Thank you for sharing with us.

  10. These cards are amazing. But I love the first one! The background complements the image so well. But the saying if perfect, like you say. It sure makes the card!

  11. great cards Therese. The Alpaca card is so cute! I really like the bright colors of the “Helo” card. I love the idea of watercolor there. Great job!

  12. Gorgeous cards (as always)! I just adore that Alpaca! And your technique for coloring the beautiful floral image is great! I think I could even do that!!

  13. Such gorgeous cards as always, Therese! Your alpaca is super cute and I really love the dotted diamond background. Thank you for sharing your creativity.

  14. I like the look of the new water colour pallet…on the top of my list.Great card and use of the colours and off to try to make something similar.Thanks so much for the idea.

  15. Always something here to love. The diamonds look great heat embossed on dark cardstock and love the floral card. What a great and easy way to paint the bouquet. TFS; love your videos!

  16. The unstructured watercolouring on that floral cluster is just delicious, Therese … and I love that little alpaca … so cool against the dark background! Even your colour swatches are wonderfully artistic! Hugs, Anita 🙂

  17. Love your wonderfully colored Alpaca against the dark, dotted background and your watercolor “sploshing” is beautiful!

  18. The alpaca card is hilarious (and I love that bg)! I also love the watercolored flowers against that pp bg – such a great combo!!

  19. Two fabulous cards with these new products, Therese. Thank you, too for a video – LOVE (L.O.V.E.) them. I’m very impressed with your swatching… brilliant.

  20. always a ‘thumbs-up’, Therese!! This is a lovely card – CAS but striking! You have inspired me to use my card stock pads – I tend to forget them, pretty as they are. I love the abstract color base for your stamp. Also love your darling alpaca card!

  21. The new watercolor pan set is calling my name. I love your idea of watercolor first and then stamp on top. I also love the bouquets already done for you!!

  22. I absolutely love your cards and processes. I have recently decided to cut back on watching card makers videos as I am more interested in just watercolouring. Your channel is one I couldn’t give up though as your cards are AMAZING!!!!! Thank you for keeping me entertained!!

  23. I absolutely love your beautiful card. Thanks so much for the hint of using the packaging as a guide to coloring the background — I’ll definitely be trying that! I love this watercolor set and the fact that it contains color “families” is such a bonus. I only have a cheap set of watercolors; now may be the time to upgrade!

  24. Lol.,..that Alpaca card is adorable! Love the background., very unique. Oh that yellow another standout card. Love your loose water color. You have inspired me to watercolor, This pan set good for beginners?

  25. If llamas can be handsome, he surely is. Love the new background and Ornamental Bliss is on my wish list. Of course the florals always go without saying, exquisite!

  26. Love the background for the Alpaca, it’s such a great texture. And your floral card is stunning. You always know to make florals shine.

  27. A beautiful, easy way to watercolor. I think I could manage this technique! And that alpaca is so cute! Thanks for the wonderful inspiration!

  28. I love your ‘sploshing’ of colour on your flowers, Therese! I must try this one soon! That Dotted Diamond is super and I love the effect in darker colours! Thanks so much for sharing and the great video!

  29. Therese, I never miss a chance to watch your card videos because they are fun, cheerful and absolutely beautiful….your alpaca card is so cute! Thank you for showcasing your talents, you inspire me to keep practicing.

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