I'm so excited to be joining in the fun at the Altenew Card Blog for their brand new Nostalgic Memories Stamp/Die/Stencil Release.
There are heaps of gorgeous new products in this release and, as always, Altenew has a huge giveaway to help them celebrate. More on that later in this post!
First up, some cards - the first one below features the Nostalgic Florals Complete Bundle containing the Nostalgic Florals Stamp Set, Die Set and Simple Coloring Stencil:
I have so many Altenew sets in my stash but can you believe I've never used one of the matching stencils before? It was so quick and easy and might just be my go-to method of colouring now - I can be a very lazy crafter at times. I white embossed the large floral so that it would 'pop' underneath the stencilled layer of colour.
There's another new product on this one - the Mini Instant Camera Frame Die. I love the dotted detail at the bottom and it was a perfect fit for the sentiment.
For the background I used one of my favourite Altenew products - Dotted Lines Debossing Cover Die.
For my next card there's not a stamp in sight. The entire card is made of die cuts including the new Zero-Waste 3D Floral Cover Die. This one die produces lots of shaped die cut flowers in various sizes so you can layer them in different ways to create your own blooms. Once you've popped out all or some of those flowers you can use the entire cover die as a background.
I lightly inked a circle using the new two-in-one Circle Frame Mask Stencil and framed it with the Mid-Century Frame Die. The sentiment is from the new XOXO and More Die Set which has lots of versatile sentiments for all kinds of occasions.
For my last card I used Groovy Garden, together with the matching Groovy Garden Die Set. I clustered the blooms together against the Cross Stitch Cover Die and added the simple sentiment from the set to a strip of card stock matted on 1 inch Gold Foil Washi Tape.
Now on to the important part...
