Altenew August 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop!

Altenew Hop

Hi friends! Thanks for joining me on this fun blog hop celebrating brand new goodies from Altenew! If you’re coming from Karin Akesdotter’s page, then you are in the right place! If not, please refer to the full hop list below!

As soon as I saw the large number dies in this new release, I thought about my son’s birthday and was excited to try the new dies.  I love the huge sizes of the numbers. Lately, I’ve really been into using clear embossing ink for stamping. It creates something similar to a watermark image.  You can see in the cards that word birthday is actually stamped with clear ink and also the word Jaxon (my son).  It’s super easy and fun.  You could take it a step further and emboss it too, but I was going for subtle effect on these cards so the glittered cutouts would stand out.

There’s just something about the number 11 that’s magical in our family.  Does your family have a magical or “lucky” number?  Hubby and I got married on 11/11 :) My son is turning 11 and my daughter was born in 2011.  I hope that means we all live to be a hundred and eleven :)  Do you see the Tim Holtz number token on the gray card?  Totally obsessed!

Please enjoy the cards I made with Altenew’s new release.  It’s a fun release and is sized beautifully for card making!  I’m not usually the one who creates beautiful things for our blog, but after seeing these products I wanted to give it a go.  Doing this gave me a huge appreciation for the bloggers and artists who create and share (and photograph and video!) for us all to enjoy on a regular basis.  Please be sure to show them some love by giving them some kind of positive feedback.  Sharing is brave!

Thanks again for joining us today! Have a great day!

  1. I am useless at getting an “artsy”” look on my own so this release is perfect! Also love the frames. Thanks for the wonderful inspiration.

  2. Cute cards! Love the teal one. We don’t have a lucky number but for some reason we have a lot of birthdays in April!

  3. Heidi, your cards are simple elegance and I’m sure Jaxon will love his card. In my family, the #15 is important.

  4. Congrats to Jaxon on his 11th birthday! Your card for him is terrific and using the clear embossing ink is a great idea. Our family has a special number, too. It’s 5!

  5. Love your inspiration. This new release is amazing. Big numbers sure get the message across! Thanks for sharing.

  6. (yep! 111 years old sounds like a good long time to keep you around!) the mega numbers will definitely be a timeless set to have

  7. Those Mega Numbers stamps & dies would be a great addition to my stash! Thanks for showing three different versions using the same number.

  8. Very cool cards! Love the teal and grey! The mega numbers look great on the card and would look awesome on scrapbook pages, too!
