Altenew Cards

Altenew November 2021 Sparkle & Shine Release Collection Blog Hop & Giveaway

Welcome everyone! I’m thrilled to be joining Altenew in celebrating their brand new Sparkle and Shine release filled with amazing new products!

Starting with one of my favorites from the release which is the In The Woodland stamp set.

I heat embossed the image in gold embossing powder and then used the coordinating stencil to add color. There is also a coordinating die that I used to die cut the image out and add to an ink blended background.

Next is a really fun set! This is the Fancy Star Builder stamp set. This set has so many possibilities!

Here’s another example of the Star Builder set in shades of blue.

I finished off this card with the Fancy For You word die cut from silver glitter cardstock and layered up for dimension.

Then we have this cool Illusion Diamonds background. I stamped the background and then spritzed it with Iridescent Shimmer Spray.

I am head over heels for the sentiments on this set! It reminds me a lot of my daughter’s writing. She likes to play with lettering and this is very similar to something she had done.

Here’s another look at the Illusion Diamonds this time with the Stunning Star Flowers stamp set.
