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!
You can enjoy the video below or at my YouTube channel
Here are some close-up on the cards that I made for today
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!
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
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 ).
