Welcome to the Altenew Blog hop! To start at the beginning, please go here to the Altenew Blog. You should have arrived to my blog from my dear friend Nicole Picadura’s blog. Today I have two cards to share with you using some amazing stamps and dies from the new release! I’m also using the brand new Altenew Mini Die cutting Machine (Demo Video below), which I absolutely adore. It’s pretty and portable and cuts like butter.
Let’s take a look at my first card! I used the Frosted Garden Stamp set and coordinating die. This is a GORGEOUS stamp set. The florals images are stunning and life like. Altenew inks react beautifully with water so I inked up the images with Altenew Inks (I have all the mini cubes), spritzed with water and then stamped! I linked the colors I used below in the supply list!
Using the coordinating dies with some of the florals really took this card to a deeper level with the pops of dimension scattered about. I used the new Mini Die Cutting Machine, which now is permanently housed next to my desk. It’s lightweight and easy to grab and use.
And now for my second card. I used the Wild About You stamp set and coordinating die. I created a watercolored background using the Altenew inks. I again inked up the stamps with the Altenew inks and spritzed with water and stamped.
I again added some dimension by popping up some of the images with foam tape.
Isn’t it adorable? It’s weighs only 2 pounds! The Machine size is 6″ x 4 1/2″ plus handle, the cutting plate size is 3″ x 6 1/4″.
