Good morning! Today, I am joining in the Altenew February 2019 Stamp and Die Release Blog Hop! As always, the designers at Altenew have created some absolutely breathtaking new flowers and other super fun designs for our creative enjoyment (you can see the entire release here), and I am so excited to be a part of this hop! You should have arrived here from Laurie Willison’s blog, and your next stop is Lillith Eeckles’s blog. Read all the way to the end to find out the different ways to win a shopping spree at Altenew!
For my first project, I used the beautiful new Exotic Tulips stamp and die set to create this fiery orange card! I stamped the blooms with Warm and Cozy inks, then die cut them out with the coordinating die set. For the card base, I blended some dark orange and Coral Berry ink in the top corner of the white card front using the Life Changing Blending Brushes from Picket Fence Studios and added a greeting (from Exotic Tulips) using Versafine and some clear embossing powder.
I arranged the blooms in the bottom corner of the card front and adhered them using foam tape and liquid adhesive to create lots of depth and dimension!
For my second project, I used the absolutely beautiful new Frilled Petals stamp and die set to do some no-line Copic coloring. I stamped the bloom and foliage using Ink on 3 Fadeout ink, then used RV21, RV23, RV42, RV55, V05, and W5 Copics to color the bloom a pretty shade of watermelon-y peach. (Is that a color? It is now haha!) I die cut the colored Frilled Petals images using the coordinating dies, as well as an oval frame from the Create A Wreath die set cut from white card stock.
I arranged all of the die cut pieces, as well as a sentiment strip stamped on more white card stock, onto a white A2 card front, then used dimensional foam adhesive to pop all of the elements up. Finally, I added some pretty gems for some sparkle.
For my third project today, I used the beautiful new Baroque Motifs stamp set and some fun embossing powder from WOW! to create a pretty, sparkly patterned background. I began by stamping Baroque Motifs on a pale gray card front using Fairy Dust embossing powder from WOW! Embossing.
I heat embossed the sentiment on some lavender card stock to bring out the lavender glitter in the embossing powder, then mounted the sentiment strip on a slightly larger piece of Tonic Matte Silver Foil card stock and popped it up on the glittery card front.
For my final project today, I wanted to do some pencil coloring using the breathtaking new Beautiful Peony stamp set. I began by stamping the blooms and foliage using white pigment ink onto some dark teal card stock. I wanted to create a seamless card front, with deep, vibrant color and just that pop of white for the sentiment, so I chose to color on colored card stock with my Polychromos pencils. I then cut the images out with the coordinating Beautiful Peony dies.
For the card base, I die cut the beautiful Thank You greeting from the Flower Arrangement die set using white card stock. I blended some Desert Night ink on the bottom corner of another panel of the deep teal card stock, then splattered it with some white liquid watercolors. I arranged the penciled Beautiful Peony flowers in a cluster and adhered them with dimensional adhesive, then added my greeting and a few gems with some liquid adhesive.

My favorite is the Baroque Motifs stamp set as I think it would be extremely easy to make so many completely different backgrounds using this stamp. But once again, I can’t take my eyes off the gorgeous embossed all white background you used to photograph your pretty cards. Please tell what it is – layers you personally did, material, etc.
Gorgeous, Emily! As usual, I find it impossible to pick a favorite from Altenew’s new release… but if I had to pick one just to say so, I’ll go with Frilled Petals. 🙂
Oh my! I can’t believe your coloring… it is so amazing. Whether you use pencils or copics, you are a. master!
Kelsey Thomas says
I really like the Trendy Circles stamp set. 🙂
ingrid den Hollander says

Love the peony stamp. Makes such a beautiful card and you chose great colors.
Denaha J Doss says

Love this collection that was released but the Motifs is easing in to first place on my must have list. But when in doubt buy it all

Stunning card designs Emily!
Caroline Livermore says
I never thought I would love an orange card as much as I do your interpretation of the tulip stamp set! Love your work! Now I know what to do with some orange ink pads that I rarely touch.

All your cards are lovely, but my favorite is your second one. The way you colored that flower is amazingly realistic. Just beautiful!
Fantastic collection of cards! Your coloring is amazing! Like the “You brighten my day.”

the frilled petals stamps are my favorite from this new release – beautiful cards, Emily!
Vikki H says
Your coloring skills are epic! the Exotic Tulips and Peony cards are wonderful.
Love your tulip card — the other three cards are beautiful as well, but tulips are my mom’s favorite flower (even though she no longer remembers that, so I have to remember for her). Therefore they are so special to me and I have already ordered my tulip stamps. And you made them orange, such a happy color. Thanks for the inspiration.
Beautiful coloring of all your flowers!
Denise Bryant says
Fabulous cards! Those tulips are amazing!
Heidi Rees says
WOW Emily! Such gorgeous cards! I absolutely LOVE the teal based card! And those florals are so pretty!

Just discovered your beautiful blog by accident, and now you have a new follower. Didn’t know half these brands existed. Love the flower dies – do they fit a Sizzex die cut machine, haven’t got one yet but want to know so I know which one to get in the future. Also want to say you take great photos of your projects – where did you get the beautiful pens from?

Pretty tough decision on a favorite from this release, there is SO much fabulousness in this one lol. However if I were to pick only one it would have to be the Baroque Motifs, it’s beautiful and will work so good on any type of card. Thanks for all the inspiration always! (email@example.com)
