Today I’m participating in the Altenew NEW Sweet Moments Collection release with a fun blog hop and TONS of prizes! You may have arrived from the wonderful Norine Borys. Welcome to my blog! To start at the beginning of the blog hop, click here. To shop the new release, click here.
This release features everything from stamps to stencils to hot foiling! Speaking of hot foiling, let’s start with those lovely items that are new to the Altenew family! Up first, All Kinds of Amazing hot foil plate!
This sentiment is large and beautiful, so there wasn’t much I needed to do beyond the hot foiling. I hot foiled the sentiment using gold foil on my Spellbinders Hot Glimmer machine. Then I went over the foiled card panel with Sea Shore Crisp Dye Inks. I started out light and got darker as I moved towards the edges of the paper. That helped to highlight the sentiment even more. I finished with a few sequins. Below is a close up of that incredible sentiment!
TIP: The foiling will resist the ink blending, so no need to worry about the foiling coming off when you ink blend over it!
Next are two cards I created using the Eucalyptus Wreath Hot Foil Plate and stencil bundle! Its SO BIG, can you see the hot foil between my cards below?
I started by hot foiling the Eucalyptus onto an 8.5 x 11 sheet of cardstock trimmed in half lengthwise using gold foil. Then I trimmed the foiled card panel into two A2 sized panels.
Next, I used the coordinating stencil to ink up the beautiful leaves using Sea Shores Crisp Dye Inks. I went from lighter to darker to give the leaves dimension.
Then I added sentiments from True Friends stamp set. Below is one more photo with a good view of that hot foil plate!
My last card uses the Playful Blooms embossing folder from the new release.
This was such an easy card to make! all I did was ink blend an A2 sized card panel using Canyon Clay Crisp Dye Ink. Then I ran it through my die cut machine using the embossing folder. Then I added Enchanted Gold embossing powder. I finished with the Tiny Sentiments Hello die that was inked in the same color and heat embossed with clear embossing powder to give it shine. Then I added a sentiment below it from the coordinating Tiny Sentiments stamp. Below is a closer look at that lovely sentiment die from the release!
I have one more bonus card to share with 3 washi tapes that also come with this release!
I dry embossed the lower half of blue cardstock and then added 2 washi tapes right above it. Then I added 2 pieces of a 3rd washi tape onto white cardstock and then die cut the Hello sentiment from the Tiny Sentiments set. I placed that right next to the washi tape. Here’s a closer look at this lovely washi with gold highlights!
Thanks for joining me today! Next on the hop is Jenny Colacicco.
