July 2018 Stamp and Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

by Lilith Eeckels


Welcome to the July 2018 Stamp and Die Release Blog Hop and Giveaway. If you have hopped over from Zinia Redo‘s blog, then you are right on track. For today's blog hop I created 4 projects. Two can be seen here on the Altenew Scrapbook Blog and the third and fourth are on my blog.

For my first project, I created a home decor piece using the Kind Words Stamp Set and some Crisp Dye Inks.

How to:

  1. Using a selection of Crisp Dye Inks, create a background by blending in colors. I started with yellow in three places and worked around the areas with shades of purple and blue.
  2. Stamp the star image from the Kind Words Stamp Set with embossing ink onto the background.
  3. Add embossing powder. I decided to go with Pure White Embossing Powder.
  4. Mat the image onto some white paper and then on a Navy Cardstock.
  5. Place the image onto some white cardstock and draw a border with a fine tip black pen.
  6. Frame and hang on the wall.

For my second project, I used the Ethereal Beauty Stamp and Die Set as well as the Leaf Frame Cover Die.

I started by cutting out a strip of colored patterned paper from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection. Then I cut out the Leaf Frame Cover Die and used it as a frame for my photo.

I created four flowers using similar shades as the watercolor stripes on the patterned paper and placed them on the coordinating colors. I added confetti and butterflies for movement and detail.

For embellishments, I used a chipboard camera and an acetate word from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection.

You can see how the layout came together in the video below or watch it on YouTube in HD.
