Altenew April 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil/Paper Pack Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

by - April 16, 2019


Hello there! Thank you so much for stopping by my portion of Altenew's April 2019 Release Blog Hop. We've got tons of stamps, dies, stencils, and paper packs to get into so let's get started! If you didn't start at the Altenew Card Blog make sure to go back for more inspiration and chances to win!

One of my favorite sets from the April release is the A Study In Watercolor stamp set. It caught my attention because when I saw it, I immediately had several ideas on how to use the stamps. Check out my video below to see all of the ways I thought up to use this set:

To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 6 lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog by 4/22/2019 for a chance to win. We’ll also draw a winner to receive a $20 gift certificate from the comments left on each designer’s blog on the blog hop list below. All winners will be announced on the Altenew Card Blog on 5/4/2019.

Another must have from this release is the Fancy Hello Die. I love it because, obviously, it's fancy, but also because the size is perfect to either add to a stamped sentiment or to be the focus of the card as I used it here in this example.


Also featured on this card are some cut outs from the Summer Garden 6x6 Paper Pack. If you're a card maker like I am, there are some incredibly great images included in this set that are just begging to be cut out and added to a card front. 


Another set that I know you'll just love is the Beloved Daisy stamp set. This set layers so beautifully and the three flowers that you can create go together so well. I paired the set with the Versatile Vases set and created a quaint bouquet. 

There's tons more to share but I know you're dying to get moving along the hop. Check out the full hop list just below the supply list. Your next stop is Virginia Lu ! Thanks again for stopping by!

  36. Wow, you certainly had fun with a lot of those fabulous products from the new Altenew release. Love all of your cards, particularly as they are all so different. I also love that you've left a leaf hanging off the edge of the card with the daisies in the vase. Most designers cut off the overhangs, but I think the design looks so much more natural when they're left on. I always leave my overhangs because I love the look. Thanks so much for sharing and giving us the chance to win.
