    Altenew May 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil/Ink/Enamel Pin Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

    Altenew May Stamp Die Release Blog Hop Graphic

    Hey there and welcome to the Altenew* May 2019 release blog hop! This release is filled with beautiful new stamps, dies, some inks and even some supercute enamel pins!

    You should have arrived here from Therese’s blog. You can also find the full blog hop list over on the Altenew card blog.

    I have a few projects to share with you today, but I wanted to start with my absolute favorite of them all! You probably know by now that the Altenew floral stamps are always my favorite thing in every release, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that I immediately fell in love with the Everlasting Happiness Stamp Set! This set is so versatile and not only perfect for cards but – as you can see below – can also be used on layouts!

    Feel inspired by this layout? Make sure to save it to one of your Pinterest boards for future reference!

    This layout shows very well why I love Altenew floral stamps so much: you can combine so many different sets with each other and they work so well together! For this page I used the new Everlasting Happiness stamps together with the Perfectly Perfect and Beautiful Day sets.

    First, I stamped the large image from Everlasting Happiness directly in the center of my white cardstock base using my favorite black ink pad. I stamped it again up at the top and bottom and let it run off the page.

    I then stamped the smaller wreath from the same set on a piece of scrap paper, loosely colored it in using my favorite watercolors and then fussy cut it out. There is no coordinating die set for these stamps, but they are very easy to cut by hand. I adhered it with some foam tape to the top of my layout and used it as a journaling spot.

    To fill the wreath in the center of my page and give it more dimension, I repeated the same steps with a few of the floral images from the Perfectly Perfect and Beautiful Day sets. For those two I used the coordinating die sets but trimmed off the white border around the die cut images a little.

    I also mixed in a few flowers and leaves from the Botanical Rhapsody washi tape that I had left over from these projects. I kept them black and white because I like the contrast that it gives to the watercolored floral elements.

    To finish this page off, I scattered around a few enamel dots and some of the Sweet Hearts adhesive wood veneer pieces. For my title I used a gold foil Thickers word from my stash. I also repeated the gold with some gold splatters on my layout.


    Floral Cards

    Since the Everlasting Happiness stamp set is my favorite of the May 2019 release, I just had to use it again to make some cards. I combined it with the new A Walk in the Woods stamp set that I used to create a background on both cards.

    For the card on the left I used a dark grey ink to stamp the wood grain pattern, for the one on the right I used this light grey ink. I find that with large background stamps like this one, using a stamp positioner tool like the MISTI helps a lot to get it right!

    Again, I loosely colored the wreaths with watercolors, fussy cut them out and adhered them with foam pads to the card bases. For the sentiments I used the Beautiful Peony set (left) and the Beautiful Blossoms set (right).

    Clean and Simple Cards

    This second set of cards is so simple and quick to make – perfect for a last minute card. You know, the ones where five minutes before leaving for a party you realize you don’t have a card. No? Just me?! 😉

    I used the new Dotted Swirls Debossing Cover Die to create the background and then stamped and heat embossed the two sentiments on a piece of colored cardstock. The congratulations came from All the Hearts and the other one from A Walk in the Woods.

    That’s it from me today. I hope you enjoyed these projects! Make sure to check out the whole May 2019 release and don’t forget to hop on to Norine’s blog to continue the hop! Thanks a lot for stopping by!
