Altenew May 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

09:00


Hi Crafters,
today I'm looking at Altenew's layering stamps, Main Squeeze and Bride-to-Be, to create some fun "2-for-1 cards". Altenew has a fabulous new release and the products I'm using today are some of my favourites.



I stamped out a bunch of the layered flowers from the Bride-to-Be set and die cut them all using the coordinating dies. I then stamped a few random flowers onto my card panel. I arranged the die cuts around the stamped images to create a variety of dimension.


I then die cut the panel using a stitched rectangle die. I used the frame that was left over to create my second card. I die cut the word thanks using the Fine Alphabet die - a perfect alphabet set for cardmakers.

To celebrate this release, I am giving away a $30 gift certificate on my blog for commenting! Additionally, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 6 lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog by Friday, May 26th for a chance to win. 6 winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 5/27/2018.


For my second card, I stamped the Main Squeeze elements onto a background. They are so realistic and life-like. You can change up the colour to turn these into limes and grapefruits as well. So versatile!


I used the same technique to get two cards out of the deal. I also used the alphabet dies to help emphasize one of the sentiments I used from the set.
