1 release – 10 cards (PART 1) | Altenew blog hop

Welcome to a fun blog hop! Altenew October Release is here and we celebrate with an inspirational blog hop and lots of giveaways. You should have arrived here from my friend Lydia Evans . If you want to start the blog hop from the beginning please visit Altenew Card Blog

.

The release is packed with awesome stamp sets just like every month that makes it difficult to choose what you “need”. To showcase the new release I have created 10 cards. Today I am sharing a video making the 5 of them and then tomorrow I will be back with the second part sharing 5 more. I hope the video will help you to decide what stamp sets are for you!

Here are some close-up on the cards that I made for today

wreath card

For this card I used the Peaceful Wreath Stamp Set ( ALTN | SSS ). It’s a gorgeous stamp set with layers that gives you this beautiful outcome in no time! No nee to do anything more on a card with that, just add your sentiment and finish off with a ribbon!

For a touch of elegance I die cut a gold border using the Fine Frames Cover Die ( ALTN | SSS ).

mini stamp card

Here is a card where I used tiny little stamps to make it. We usually underestimate them but they can create lovely cards with really low cost! For the brunch I used the Season’s Greetings Stamp Set( ALTN | SSS ) ans you can also use the sentiment included. I wanted to showcase one more mini set so I used the Mini Christmas Stamp Set( ALTN | SSS ) from a previous release.

blooming branches card

For this card I used the Blooming Branches Stamp Set ( ALTN | SSS ). It’s a lovely flower stamp set with a very usnique design. You can stamp only the branches or add a second layer with the blooms.

playful bloom card

Altenew keeps coming up with wonderful flower stamps in every release. Here I used the Playful Blooms Stamp Set ( ALTN | SSS ). Instead of using the layering stamps with ink pads I worked with my Watercolor Brush Markers – Spring Garden Set( ALTN | SSS ).

potted plants card

Finally here is an earthy looking card using the Potted Plants Stamp Set( ALTN | SSS ). I kept the colors in shades of green and brown which makes the card perfect for men or women. The polka dot at the back is from the Dainty Swiss Dots Stamp Set( ALTN | SSS ).

    Absolutely love all the cards you make…. for this blog hop and in general. 🙂 It is always very difficult for me to pick a favorite when you make several at one time. But I do especially love this great new wreath stamp set from Altenew and the card you created using it. My second favorite is the card with the yellow background and the single flower silhouette-cut into the edge of the white card-stock.

    A plethora of beautiful cards! My favorite has to be the yellow one where you’ve trimmed the panel along the lines of that single beautiful bloom! Fabulous.
