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 ).

    Years ago I purchased an expensive but beautiful layered snowflake embellishment. It was spectacular! The Altnew layered snowflake is even more beautiful and I can make it myself over and over again!

    Hi Vicky, I’m so glad I made it all the way through the Altenew blog hop because they saved the best for last! What an incredible job you did on all these cards! I thoroughly enjoyed your video and all the tips and tricks you shared. Your cards are just wonderful! It’s hard to pick a favorite but I think your Merry Christmas card wins for me with its bold sentiment and bright colors, and because you make me look at those small sets in a new way. I am really looking forward to seeing the next five cards! I’m also subscribing to your blog because you’re a talented designer, a great teacher, and I loved listening to your video!

    I really like the graphic impact of the yellow Playful Blooms card. It’s the first time I have ever wanted a layering stamp set; usually I much prefer to color myself.

    I loved ALL your cards!! What gorgeous cards you made!! I especially loved the card you made with the Blooming Branches stamp set! And I loved the way you offset the flower using the Playful Bloom die, by cutting it partially out of the card front. I would have never thought to do that! The colors you used on the Playful Bloom stamps were so bright and cheerful! Thanks for sharing your ideas and talent!

    Really gorgeous cards Vicky and I love Part 1 of your video, you created so many beautifully designed cards with the new release. (I haven’t gotten to part 2 yet but I will)! Your Peaceful Wreath card is so gorgeous, I love the gold peace sentiment and the red ribbon is the perfect accent for the card. The Playful Blooms Stamp Set is one of my very favourite new stamps and your card is absolutely stunning. I am so happy you demonstrated your watercolour technique and I love how you added half of the negative from the die cut on your card front and placed the flower where it was cut from , it really looked fantastic! Thank you for all of your wonderful inspiration.
