Altenew Card Kit Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello and welcome! I am thrilled to be a part of the Altenew New Day Card Kit blog hop! We are sharing projects today with the New Day card kit. The kit is full of so many lovely supplies! If you are hopping along, you should have arrived here from Chari Moss' lovely blog! If you are just joining in, check the entire list of hoppers at the end of the post.


The New Day card kit comes with stamps, cardstock, gorgeous patterned papers, paper die cuts, wood cut shapes, enamel dots, glitter gold tape, dies, and glossy letter stickers! Its packed full of the beauty we all love from Altenew!


Because I am always drawn to the stunning stamps from Altenew, I started with those. Otherwise, how do you choose from all that goodness?! :D


I placed my floral image onto my MISTI and inked it with Distress Oxide Worn Lipstick ink. I stamped the image and wiped away the ink. Then I inked the image with Distress Oxide Spiced Marmalade ink. By stamping the same image in the exact same spot, a cool color layer effect happened! To take it even father, I applied Distress Oxide Picked Raspberry ink around the outside edges of the image. Once again, another layer of color was added! Its such a neat effect and works so well with the formula of the Distress Inks! 

 So well in fact, I did the same effect with the stem and leaves image!


Along the left side of the panel, I added a strip of the glitter gold tape. Layered over the top is a small strip of patterned paper. Oh, how I love stripes! The sentiments are two die cut images that are included in the kit, along with the enamel dots.


For the envelope, I added a liner made from a color-coordinating piece of patterned paper I found in the New Day card kit pad, plus to stripes of the gold glitter tape.


Speaking of gorgeous papers, I HAD to use this piece of art to create a card! I simply trimmed the paper down to A2 card size. (It is a 6x6" paper pad.)


I added a stamped sentiment, along with more of that yummy gold glitter tape. I cut the tape in half, length-wise, to create the frame for the sentiment. And well, no card is complete without enamel dots! This kit makes me a happy card-making girl!


While I was on a roll with the patterned papers, I grabbed this rainbow paper and again trimmed it to A2 card size. Another item I could not wait to use were these geometric wood cut shapes! How cool is that grouping of triangles?!


I stamped a sentiment from the stamp set on black cardstock and heat embossed it. Adding the black enamel dots from the kit tied things together. And for fun, a small heart-shaped enamel dot was added. Because, pink enamel hearts! :D
