Altenew have done it again, today they are not only releasing some fabulous new stamp sets and dies but now they have their very own luxurious embossing powders!   We are all hopping along to celebrate and you should have arrived here from AMY’S fabulous blog.  I couldn’t stop making cards with this release, so scroll down to see them and the video that I have made showcasing the fab new Layered Plaid Cover Dies as well as to find out how you can WIN!

To created my Plaid background I used Moonrock, Dark Gray and the blue cardstock from the New Day Card Kit, then I added a Modern Cat (coloured like the lilac burmese that we used to have….  and she did manage to sneak a photo into the video today).

and I used the Pure White Embossing Powder for the first time and am totally impressed with the ‘brightness’ of the white, tick!

Next I created a gift card set using the mini stamp sets: Latte, Strawberry and Ice Cream.

This time I heat embossed the images with the beautiful Golden Peach embossing powder on some Spicy Yogurt cardstock and added a touch of colour with some Prismacolor Pencils.

I also used the new Watercolor Frames stamp set to emboss a frame around each of the images.

My final card was heaps of fun and came together very easily.  To create the background I stamped a panel with one of the Watercolor Frames.

Two of the flowers from Best Buds were stamped directly onto the card front and the final one coloured with Copics, fussy cut and popped up on the front.  One of the best things about this set is that if you want, you can also get the layering set separately if you prefer to add colour with stamp layering.

Video : Altenew New Day Card Kit – Wood Veneers!

I’ve been asked to share some ideas on how to use the Altenew New Day Card Kit and in particular using the wood veneers included in the kit.  So I decided to make two cards and I have a video showing you how!

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

Video: Gerda Steiner Go Wild Party Animals!

Lostinpaper - Gerda Steiner - Party Animals (card video) 1

I had so much fun stacking the Gerda Steiner Designs Party Animals and the Go Wild stamp sets that I made two……  YES, the Go Wild set has been released and it’s uber cute!

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

Lostinpaper - Gerda Steiner - Party Animals (card video) 1

The sentiment came from the Moody Unicorns stamp set.

My second card was pretty much the same layout but I changed it up by repeating the same animal for each tier instead.  I also thought it would be fun to ‘spatter’ the background and this time I used a sentiment from the sweet little Hedgehog with Sign mini stamp set.

Video : Altenew Aster Build-A-Flower Release!

Altenew - Aster Build -A-Flower - Thinking of You - Reflection Scrapbook Collection - New Day Card Kit (card video) 1 copy

Isn’t this exciting Altenew have a special release of new Build-A-Flower Set on the 15th of every month, each set offers a 6×8 stamp set and a coordinating die so you can easily create your projects (it is only available as a set, not as individual products).  This month we are introducing Aster Build-A-Flower, and isn’t it another beauty!

But, instead of Building-A-Flower today I thought it would be fun to share how versatile these layering stamps can be and I decided to Build-A-Background….

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

Altenew - Aster Build -A-Flower - Thinking of You - Reflection Scrapbook Collection - New Day Card Kit (card video) 1 copy

I use the alphas and butterfly from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection and that sweet little heart came from the New Day Card Kit.

Here are some of my Altenew faves….

So…  In keeping with the party atmosphere I thought it would be fun to create a fun set of cards using some of the mini stamp sets from Altenew, and these Fair themed images seemed perfect!

Altenew - Carousel - Ferris Wheel - Celebrate - Lostinpaper (card) 1 copy

I used the Splash of Color set to create a bright background for the Carousel and Ferris Wheel images.

The background here was ink blended through the Halftone Stencil and the sentiment was die cut with the Inline Alpha die set.
