Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit: Hello Beautiful Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)

Hey Crafty People

Welcome to the Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit: Hello Beautiful Release Blog Hop + Giveaway!!!

The hop will be packed full of awesome inspiration using the brand new Craft Your Life Project Kit for September; Hello Beautiful! If you’ve not seen one of these new releases before then you are surely in for a treat!!!

Each month the kits will consist of stamps, dies, stencils & embossing folders that are created to coordinate beautifully with each other.

These products will be exclusive to the kit and won’t be available to purchase separately; the value really is AMAZING!



Colouring on the embossed panel…

I out an a2 panel of Neenah 80lb through my die cutting machine in the 3d embossing folder – this gives such a gorgeous, detailed image. I know I’ve said it before, but these embossing folders are seriously next level!!!

Using several colour families of Artist Markers, I added colour to each of the petals, leaves, stems and flower centres. The details in the embossed image make it easy to know where your shadows and highlights need to be.

Using the brush tip makes this so much easier for me, but the beauty of Altenew’s markers is that they have a bullet tip on the other end to help with those smaller details.

I kept this design super simple, adding a stamped sentiment from the kit.

Ombre ink swiping

Mini ink cubes make it so easy to add stripes of colour, and when you overlap them you get a really quick, and easy ombre effect!
Stamping an image in bold, black Obsidian ink over the top of this coloured background is such an awesome technique to have in your arsenal!!! (Just give the ink swipes a little time to fully dry to ensure you get a perfectly crisp image.)

I also stamped a sentiment from the kit in Obsidian.

Once stamped, I die cut the panel with the middle die from the Mix & Match Frames set, and mounted it onto a Buff panel cut with the largest Frame die.
For extra dimension, I used the Altenew foam tape to adhere the two.


Tone-on-tone subtlety…

Before embossing this panel of Neenah 80lb, I swiped a Buttercream ink pad across the inside of the embossing folder.
You get this fabulous two tone cream & white design; I love it!

I’ve got this ‘touch of gold’ pearlescent cardstock in my stash, so I cut the shadow for this large ‘you’ from that and I added a vellum layer over the top. I really love how this looks, and it’s the complete opposite of how I would normally layer a sentiment.
Then I added the sub sentiment layered the opposite way.

I really love how this one turned out! It’s difficult to catch in photos, but it looks absolutely stunning in real life.
