Altenew Cards Christmas

Altenew November 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop + GIVEAWAY!

Welcome everyone! I’m excited to be a part of the Altenew November 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop. There are some new amazing products being released and I can’t wait to share them with you!


I have a video featuring the Plentiful Pine stamp set that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.


Can I just say I really have a thing for trees right now. Maybe it’s because I live in Wisconsin and I’m surrounded by trees but I just adore them! So of course I fell in love with the new Plentiful Pine stamp set.

I stamped the small and large Pine trees in the Rose Petal Ink collection onto white card stock. Then used the coordinating die to cut them out.

I also went ahead and stamped the moon onto white card stock using Rose Quartz and Puffy Heart ink from the Rose Petal Collection. I die cut that out as well.

I am going for a monochromatic look for my card so I’m using the same ink pad collection to ink blend a background. I then spritzed the background with Altenew Shimmer Spritz. I wanted a little more sparkle so I add flicks of gold and white from my Gansai Tambi Starry collection.

Once the background was dry, I stamped the sentiment at the bottom of the card using Cosmic Berry ink. I then inked the sentiment up again in Embossing ink and heat embossed with Clear embossing powder.

I then added my moon and small trees. My larger tree I added with foam squares.

I was loving how the last card turned out so I created one more with these same colors. This card is a little more simplistic. I just lightly ink blended Puffy Heart to one side of my card using a blending brush.

I then stamped the sentiment in Cosmic Berry and added my tree and moon.

I have another card featuring the Plentiful Pine and Mini Moon stamp set but this time in more traditional colors.

Also being released this month is the Classic Beauty stamp/die/stencil set.

I stamped the images onto white card stock with the Golden Sunset and Tropical Forest ink collections. Then used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

My background for this card was created using the Liquid Marble stencil in which I ink blended onto white card stock with Limestone ink.

I stamped a sentiment from the Classic Beauty stamp set with Obsidian Ink. I added the Handwritten Hello die cut from Black card stock above the stamp sentiment. Then I layered on my images with liquid glue and foam squares.

This next card is using the stencil from the Classic Beauty set. I ink blended the leaf all over my background using Bamboo and Olive ink.

Then stamped the sentiment from the Classic Beauty stamp set in Obsidian ink.

My last card to share features the Small Moments and Crafty Sentiments stamp sets. I inked the snowflake in Purple Wine and Cosmic Berry ink for a two tone look. Then used the coordinating die to cut it out.

For my background, I splattered gold and white ink from the Gansai Tambi Starry Sky collection onto white card stock.

Once the panel was dry, I stamped the sentiment from the Crafty Greetings stamp set in embossing ink. I then heat embossed with Gold embossing powder.

I finished off the card by adding the snowflake above the sentiment using foam squares.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration! I had a ton of fun creating with the new products.
