Altenew | October 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hey friends! It's time for another Altenew release + blog hop and there are so many things to love. I've created two projects, and I'll share the project without a process video first.

There are some pretty awesome string art dies in this release and I used the heart to add some fun detail to this intro for my 2020 6x8 Album that I call my "Whatever the Crap I Want" album.


I stamped images from the Wanderlust Stamp Set on the bottom of the page using Evergreen and Silver Lake inks and a little bit of Mountain Mist on the bottom. (Is anyone else geeking out about the fact that the ink names are all outdoorsy and fit perfectly with this set? Just me? Okay...)


Here's a closer look at that string art. I used white embroidery thread because I wanted the texture without a lot of visual weight.


I added the new 2020 Stamp Set in white on top of my photo and I love the way it looks. Because it's a 2x3 stamp set it has a great price-point and I think I could use it in my December Daily album next year as well.

The second project I created is a 12x12 layout and I was excited to share a fun foiling technique with you.


I used the new Truly Grateful stamp + die set to create these gorgeous flowers. One of the things I love about this set is the fact that it's a layering set with an outline included. Outline stamps work perfectly for the foiling technique I want to share with you (full tutorial in the video below).


I stamped the outline images using StazOn ink on the Heat Transfer Gold Foil and then traced the outline using the WeRMemory Keepers Freestyle Foil Quill.

Guys. It's super cool.


I stamped the layers of the flowers and leaves after I did the foiling. The foil resists the ink, so it works perfectly!

Here is my process video where you can get a closer look at how I created this layout.



And here's another look at the final layout:


So, ready for the giveaway info? Yep. That's what I thought.

  5. Such a fun stop on the blog hop! I never would have put string-art heart and Wanderlust stamp together (or stamped on top of the photo!) But it totally works! I also really appreciated learning the foiling technique, I've seen the quilling pen around, but it's so great to see it being used with the outline stamp---neat! Your layout still would have been gorgeous without it, but it really does add another layer of depth.

  32. A huge THANKS to you! I recently bought the foiling quill set of the pens because I found them for what I considered a good price (half off at scrapbook.com). I read what you could do but I haven't seen anyone use them before now. So thanks for demonstrating it. Now I'm excited to try it. Your journal page is fantastic. I love the name lol. Your scrapbook layout is beautiful with all the spray and spatters and foiling.
