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!

video tutorial

You can enjoy the video below or at my YouTube channel

close-up photos

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 ).

    “You are my favourite” was my favourite card. I really liked the border cut effect. The potted plants was a close second. I especially liked the polka dot background on that.

    I just discovered your youtube and I am simply thrilled. Thank you for sharing your creative talent. I can’t wait to start my new card making adventure! I am excited to find out about card making kits as well. Is there a way to use die cuts without having to purchase the machine? I am just starting out and some of the costs associated with creating lovely cards is a little overwhelming. Thank you for any information.

    I love all your cards and this release certainly is packed with wonderful stamps as usual! My favorite card among the first five was your “Playful Bloom” card. Water coloring is a little intimidating to me, but using the Altenew water color brushes directly on the stamp is something I think I could do! Your technique of using the negative space left from die cutting the flower was ingenious! You are such an inspiration, Vicky!
