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