Altenew September 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello there! I’m joining Altenew today for the September Stamp/Die/Stencil Release blog hop and there is so much to inspire you, I can’t even! You should have arrived here from Nenette S Madero’s blog, but if you’ve happened here by chance, be sure to click back to the beginning at the Altenew Card blog and then you won’t miss anything. And there are prizes to be won, so make sure to read all the way to the end!

I have three projects to share today so lets jump right in!

My first card is a pseudo attempt at “no-line coloring” or in this case, no-line painting. It’s not technically no-line coloring because you can still see the lines; I only stamped them in a lighter color so they’d fade into the painting a little more than black lines do.

I started by stamping the images from the Happy Pomegranates stamp set in this month’s release, onto masking paper and cutting them out. With those paper masks I could build an arrangement using three different images from the set.

Using the masks, I stamped my images in Evening Gray ink and began painting. I used Altenew water color paints for this project and I used mixes of Evergreen, Forest Glades, Bamboo, Emerald and Grapevine to blend the leaves and get a variety of shades.

I painted the pomegranates in shades of Crimson, Grapevine and Rubella and filled in the background with the muddy shades left in my paint palette. Then I stamped one of the sentiments in the Happy Pomegranates set and heat embossed with gold embossing powder before splattering with some paint specks. I trimmed the painted piece and adhered it to a cream colored cardstock card base and added a few clear sequins for some subtle interest.

My second card is a technical repeat of the first in that, once again, I stamped the flower from the Modern Poinsettia stamp set with Evening Gray ink so that the outlines would be less distinct.

I used a more “artsy” hand with the painting for this card, letting the dark areas go very dark and the light areas stay very light. It was a painting experiment and I kind of like it!

I stamped and cut two images of the poinsettia and colored one predominantly red (with a few green tips) and the second, entirely green, the way poinsettias are. Once dry and ready to adhere, I used very strong adhesive but only in the center of the flowers so that the leaf edges could lift and look more shaped.

For the background of the card, I die cut a piece of aqua-teal card stock with the Candy Cane Stripe Cover Die. I ran fine strips of liquid adhesive along the negative cut outs and adhered them to the card base, rather than using the positive portion of the die cut. I’ll save and use it on another card. In one of the spaces left, I stamped a sentiment from the Modern Poinsettias stamp set, then added a few matching enamel dots to complete the card.

In the end, I went back with a fine tipped black pen and added back in some of the detail lines around the center of the top poinsettia. I had also stamped the same flower in black ink and painted it as well, confirming my suspicions that I would like the lighter outlines for this card better.

Finally, I have the first of the Christmas Season cards! The Festive Foliage set is so beautiful and amazing with many different options you can choose from. The tree can be stamped in 2 different layers, or solid, as can the heart shape.

I stamped with embossing ink and heat embossed with silver embossing powder. I stamped and embossed the tree first, then die cut the heart before stamping the “to:” and “from:” sentiments.

I love the subtle glamour of the silver on the pale blue card stock. I positioned the “hearts” stamp in the center of the opening and stamped it with embossing ink and heat embossed it with more silver embossing powder. I also silver heat embossed the edge of a piece of scrap cardstock to get that narrow silver strip that I’ve added to the bottom.

I covered the back of the stamped card panel with foam tape and adhered it to the card front revealing the part of the sentiment that is stamped inside the heart. I added some of the red enamel dots in the Red Cosmos set, and a star and heart shape as well.
