Altenew August 2020 Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Wax Seals Release Blog Hop + Video!

Have you ever used nesting dies to create a layered look on your card? Today I have a video sharing how I did just that!

Did you see that Altenew have a new release and we are hopping along to celebrate, so you should have arrived here from DANA’s fabulous Blog!

Today’s cards are very different! It all began with with these sweet little critters from the Baby Shower Stamp Set.

I coloured them with Altenew Artist Markers and thought it would be fun to add some balloons in their hands.

Then I just had to add a background and so I used the Mountain Scene and Cloud Scene Stencils to do this.

My second card and video shares how I created a layered look using the Nesting Ovals Die Set.

I used the gorgeous Beauty Within Stamp Set

and was able to add colour very quickly with the new Simple Coloring Stencil Set.

You can see my video here or Watch it in HD at YouTube.

  1. Therese, I loved seeing the flowers in the tranquility ink set– really stunning! Thanks for sharing that idea, and the balloons are a lovely addition to the woodland creatures – they seem very happy to have them!

  2. Therese, you’ve been my inspiration for several years now, and was the one who introduced me to the Altenew line of products! I love re-creating your sample exactly so I can see it with my own eyes and hold it in my own hand and be totally amazed at the fact that “I can do that, too!” Thank you for the inspiration!

  3. They’re both great, but my heart was stolen by the floral card design. It’s beautiful and I love the color choices!

  4. That set is adorable for baby showers and congrats cards. I just love the floral card, can’t wait to watch the video, do you think my husband will be as mad when I purchase the set if I say I won a gift certificate?

  5. Nesting dies~~~~ yes it has been a long time since I have done that and my oh my STUNNING work — thanks for showing us and also for the fabulous bear card as well – lovely work – an artist you are!

  6. Those little balloon toting critters in the woods are adorable, Therese … and what gorgeous florals! I was glued to the video not only to enjoy seeing you create (I always do!) … but also to see how you created this beauty … it’s a stunner! Hugs, Anita 🙂

  7. Both are absolutely wonderful!! Love that sweet group of critters – and you’ve shown that they don’t have to be used for a baby card. Love the layers on the floral card.

  8. Such an adorable card with the critters and love the technique for creating the the flower card.
    Thanks so much for sharing.

  9. Two great cards, but then, I wouldn’t expect anything else and you never disappoint. The colouring is amazing in both cards and I was so delighted to be able to see your video at last. It’s been tantalisingly sitting unavailable in UTube for too long. Thank you for your amazing inspiration.

    1. hahaha sorry about that, I was trying the new premiere feature and didn’t realise that it did it ‘straight away’ next time I’ll be sure to plan it a little better. thanks so much Delia!

  10. Loving both of these cards! The new floral set with the coloring stencil is so beautiful, and the set with the little critters is just too adorable for words!

  11. I love your cards!!! The animal card is very nicely colored. The Beauty Within Card is a masterpiece! Thank you for the video and for the incredible cards.

  12. Wow – your layered white flowers are gorgeous. Those flowers in Beauty Within Stamp set are amazing. Altenew knows how to do flowers.

  13. Wow!!! Both cards are amazing. The baby shower card is so cute. And I am loving the layered card technique. It looks stunning.

  14. Absolultely gorgeous. That first card with the animals is just stunning!
    Will have to come and watch the video another time – Ms 15 is serving dinner 🙂 I know I’m spoilt hehe

  15. What wonderful card projects, Therese! Those critters are so darling! Your floral card is absolutely stunning and love the effect with the ovals!!

  16. OMG!!! fabulous floral card. Can’t wait to give it a try. Beautiful colors used and I think i will like the stencil layering better than the block layering, seems to be a bit more controlled and easier. Love your work and helpful tip techniques. Happy Day and off to more hopping.

  17. I loved the addition of the balloons to the critter card, but the colors and the layering on the oval card was just…. WOW!!!!! I have done the triple time layering before and love the look, but yes, this simplifies it. The colors of the flowers are just gorgeous. Now I’m thinking I need those color inks. Ugh. Lol. Thank you for sharing and for inspiring me to revisit that style of card.

  18. Very impressive card! Love the look of the continuous floral that you achieved with the stacked ovals. Your coloring is gorgeous–the new coloring stencils look like they are going to be an awesome product. Love the colors in the Tranquility set.

  19. Love both designs Therese! Very different but both are amazing! Must confess my favorite is the layered floral! Thanks for the inspiration and video!

  20. I absolutely love what you did with the nesting oval dies! It adds so much interesting dimension to the card. So, SO beautiful! Thank you as well for taking the time to create a video tutorial for utilizing this Technique.

  21. Fabulous cards! I am really loving these sweet animals and the way you colored them! Beautiful floral design too!

  22. Wow! I love all the layers on your floral card! What a beautiful idea! I need to try this! Your critter card is super cute, too!

  23. Beautiful card, genius technique! I wanted the Beauty Within set the moment I saw it, and now that I’ve seen those coloring stencils in action, it’s become a “must have.”

  24. Your scene card is so sweet. I like how you kept the colors pretty medium-soft. I sometimes have a hard time doing that with the artist markers. But that oval one has my heart. I love the colors, the dimension, the everything.

  25. Two great cards. One is sweet with adorable animals and the other showcases beautiful flowers. I love them both. I especially like the way you used the layers of ovals to highlight the flowers on the second card. Thanks for sharing!

  26. Your cards are all unique. I love the sky on the animal card…it looks so realistic. And the nesting dies on the other….OUTSTANDING. I love how you lined them up and used foam between. I have never seen that done, and feel it is so unique. Congrats!

  27. Those critters are just way too cute, Therese, and on your card they just made me smile today! And your stamping over the ovals is so cool. I know you have done this before, but I haven’t tried your technique. The great video gives me the courage to try it! Thanks for sharing with us.

  28. Beautiful cards! The colors you chose for the flowers are absolutely stunning! Thank you for the inspiration!

  29. Wow! Your critters w/ballooms are so cute. Just adorable. And your flowers are beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

  30. I didn’t realise these flowers were coloured with a stencil till I saw the video. How clever is that! I have those blues, I should get them out. Lovely card.
