Hello everyone! Welcome to my blog and if you’ve come here from Nicole Watt’s blog, then a big welcome. You might want to join in with all the fun from the beginning, and if that’s the case, please pop to Altenew’s blog and start there.

All following links are affiliate ones. Thanks for supporting me by clicking them, it just pays me a little extra but costs you nothing! x

This is a cool release, and do grab a drink as there’s a lot to show you! Altenew are releasing stamps, dies, stencils, embossing folders, and way more! The first set I’m using is called Fresh Bloom.

The Fresh Bloom stamp set is full of possibilities; your stamp set, your colours! I love reds so added a full on red one in the front and then a subtler reddish mix on the back one. You’ll see more of the leaves later- they’re just so elegant! There’s a matching Fresh Bloom Die set too

My next project is using some simple heat embossing.

For this card, I used several of the foliage images from the Fresh Bloom stamp set and die cut them using the matching Fresh Bloom Die Set. I just heat embossed using silver embossing powder on a dark teal cardstock piece. I used the Woven Stripes stamp set. It’s such a lovely stamp set- you can use it as a background or a bold statement. I white heat embossed the sentiment on a piece of Matt Duralar (from Grafix) and added some of the lovely new Essential White Enamel Dots which come in a pack of black and white in different sizes.

There are some lovely freebies to celebrate the new release :

Here are THREE ways to get a FREEBIE to kickstart your creativity! (Free gift will be added to cart automatically.)

Onto the next project. This time a little more of a graphic style..

The new Diamond Frame Cover die does all the ‘heavy lifting’ for you. I love how you can get real impact just by using the outer frame, or start to build in colour like I’ve done. You can see the Fresh Bloom stamp set in the background. I’ve also used my favourite Hello & Hugs Die Set plus the Glitter Cardstock Ocean Reflection pack. Now onto the prizes..

There’s also some new sets of Mixed Media inks being released which I absolutely LOVE !

If you’ve never used them before, here’s a graphic explaining more and showing the whole set of colours. They come in two sets but you can purchase them individually too.

I used Sapphire, Persian Blue, Carribbean Sky and Buttercream pigment inks. I initially created a piece of fabric using the 3 blues but then decided to add in some yellow. So what type of material have I stamped on? Cotton- but if you want the most crisp images, then go for mercerised cotton ( a process which treats the cotton with sodium hydroxide which strengthens the fabric and makes it smoother). Get the individual colours or treat yourself to the Glacier Caves or Summer Afternoon bundles.

So what did I do with it afterwards?

I created a notebook cover adding in a little strip of coordinating fabric plus some old jean fabric. Here’s the inside..

I whipped up a bookmark too. The Mixed Media Inks aren’t just for fabric though- try them on wood, paper- anything that’s porous! If you want to see this lovely Modern & Edgy release in full, please go here

Well you’ve heard enough from me- the next lovely designer to go and visit is Erin Thompson. Thanks so much for joining me today. If you happen to get lost- I’ve added the whole list of designers taking part below.
