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.
