Altenew Stamps/Dies/Die Cutting Machine Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

by Lilith Eeckels

Welcome to the December Release Blog Hop and giveaway. You have probably come from the amazingly talented Laurel Beard. If you have just joined you can start the hop over on the Altenew Card Blog.

This month's release is extra special as Altenew has just introduced its Mini Blossom Die Cutting Machine which  is the compact and portable must-have tool for your craft room!  It is designed to work with Altenew dies (sold separately) and other wafer-thin metal dies.  It can be used to quickly and easily die cut a variety of materials, including cardstock and Altenew specialty papers, and will help you add texture and dimension to your projects. The elegant and clean design will look wonderful on your craft desk, secured on its stable base with suction feet.

Another product I would like to mention is the ASL LOVE stamp and die set. Altenew will be donating a portion of the profits from ASL Love Stamp Set and ASL Love Die Set to an organization that supports the deaf community.

I created three projects for this release. Two will be shared here and another one on my blog.

The first one is a card. I used the Peony Spray stamp and colored it with some Artist Markers. I'm still learning and have a long way to go but the Artist Markers are a lot less scary than at first. I'm really pleased with the leaves. The flower itself isn't quite how I'd like it but it is still pretty.

For the background I used one of the Altenew stencils (Sketched Line stencil) and used some Frayed Leaf and Forest Glades Crips inks with a blender.


For my second project I created a layout combining the Our Family Scrapbook collection with the Peony Spray stamp/die set and the Everything About You stamp set. The latter is such a fun set to use and you can create a multitude of sentiments or titles.


I kept the design simple with layers, clouds and some hearts. To color the flower I opted for sot watercolor look.



As with every release blog hop Altenew has some fabulous prizes up for grabs and there are loads more on the blogs of our DT members and guests.

To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to SIX lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and Altenew Scrapbook Blog by Friday, December 15th for a chance to win. Six winners will be announced on the Altenew Card Blog and Altenew Scrapbook Blog on Sunday, December 17th.
