Altenew November 2021 Sparkle and Shine Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)

Hello crafty friends, how are you all doing today?

Today Altenew is releasing some amazing new stamps/dies and 12 new Inks (isn’t this amazing). This is another release with a lot of different products in different styles and I really love that about these releases. I’m sure that you will find something in this release that will fit to your style.

And of course Altenew is celebrating the new release with a lot of giveaways and a Blog Hop full of inspiration.

You will find a full Blog Hop line up just below.

For my first card I used the new Tree Mix Die Set. In this amazing Set you get 15 dies to create some super cool trees. Depending on the colors you use, you can create Christmas or even other Season cards. I did a little rainbow Christmas card die cutting the trees out of color cardstock and then the top part just in white. I adhere them all on a piece of light grey cardstock and of course I need some white splatters. And if you look right under the trees also tried to add a bit of shadow. To finish it I did heat emboss the Merry and Bright sentiment of a piece of black cardstock using white embossing powder.

For my second card I used the In the Woodland Stamp and Die set as well es the Frozen Delights Crisp Dye Inks (the colors are soooooo pretty). I started with my background. Therefore I used the Altenew Double Sided Tape and cut it down into 1 inch stripes. I peeled one side of the tape and adhere them onto my card panel leaving a little white space in between of each stripe. Then I peeled of the other paper from the adhesive and sprinkled some embossing sparkles over it. I tried to use something that match the new colors. What I really love about this set is that you get the coordinating stencil to color the image. 

The stunning Starflowers Stamp and Die set. It is a super nice layering set that makes it super easy to create some beautiful Starflowers. I used the new Jewel Tones Crisp Dye Inks and mixed them with some other inks. For my background I used a 3D embossing folder and I did let it crack a bit to give it some texture. And as you can see I also added some gold splatter (I don’t know why I`m so super addicted to splatter lately).

My last card is a very simple one. I used the Illusion Diamond Stamp Set for my background. I did heat emboss it in white and then used 4 of the new Inks over it (embossing resist technique). I then used white stripe and heat embossed the sentiment in gold. And that’s it… super simple.
