Altenew April 2022 Spring Garden Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)

April 25, 2022 at 2:00 pm 34 comments

Hello everyone! Hope you’ve had a lovely weekend! I’m back celebrating a fun new release from Altenew involving dies, hot foil plates and stencils. You may have arrived from the blog of the lovely Laura Jane but if you want to start at the beginning, please head to Altenew’s card blog.

There are lots of wonderful new products including some Ultra Sticky Double Sided Tape which is going to be soo useful! I chose a couple of dies and one of the new hot foil plates to get creative with. I picked the Antique Blossoms die and Chevron Background Hot Plate.

I don’t do a lot of foiling, but this plate foiled easily and beautifully. I love the contrast between the foil and the dark blue. It delivers a gorgeous precise result. With having the chevron design, once it’s foiled, there is some leftover foil with the negative design, which I decided to turn into a second project. There’s an easy way to do it using a foil plate that comes with the Gemini Junior.

Once the leftover foil was transferred onto white cardstock, I simply added die cuts from the Itty Bitty Branches die cut from white cardstock. I also used the Hello Hugs die and added some black and pink dots to add depth. Such an easy technique and you could easily do this on a plain gold piece of cardstock if you don’t do hot foiling. Hot foiling is such a lot of fun, it’s worth trying it!

You can purchase anything from the new collection here. Here’s what the the new double sided sticky tape looks like too. Isn’t it nice having essential products that look beautiful too.

Giveaway Prizes

$300 in total prizes! To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 2 lucky winners and a $25 gift certificate to 8 winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or each designer’s blog post on the blog hop list below by 05/01/2022 for a chance to win. 

Altenew will draw 10 random winners from the comments left on each stop of this blog hop and announce the winners on the Altenew Winners Page on 05/03/2022.

I hope these projects give you some inspiration for all the new products – such a fabulous selection.

I’d love to direct you on to Reiko Tsuchida next- and I just know you’ll find something wonderfully creative at her blog.

Thanks for visiting and see you soon x
