Altenew Seasonal Textures Stand-alone Embossing Folder Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)



 I hope you're enjoying the blog hop, you should have arrived from the lovely Joylita Dsouza's blog, if you get lost anywhere along the hop, head back to the Altenew blog for the complete hop details :)



Visit the Altenew shop HERE to see a look at all the products in this fabulous release!

I LOVE creating holiday cards and as soon as I saw this Classic Pinecones Slim 3D Embossing Folder I knew I wanted to create an all white card.


Here's a close up of the layers which have been heat embossed with Translucent Pearl Embossing Powder to add a bit of shine and sparkle.

Another look at the full slimline card:



Supplies:
- Nesting Slim Rectangles Dies
- Modern Deer Stamp Set
- Sand Dune and Espresso Crisp Dye Ink
- Clear Embossing Ink
- Translucent Pearl Embossing Powder
- Gold Mirror Cardstock


Isn't this folder fantastic? It's the Organic Stones 3D Embossing Folder and this is probably one of the quickest and easiest cards I've ever made. Simply apply Seashore Washi Tape on the diagonal to a 4" x 5 1/4" white card stock panel and then emboss with folder. Finish the card off with a die cut sentiment cut from Gold Mirror Cardstock and layered over the shadow die cut in black cardstock.

Supplies:
- Organic Stones 3D Embossing Folder
- Seashore Washi Tape
- Craft Your Life Project Kit: Seasonal Blooms-thanks die
- Gold Mirror Cardstock



I was super excited when I saw this folder, the Festive Foliage 3D Embossing Folder as I love, love, love the Festive Foliage stamp set. The folder is larger than the image but you can see that you can still emboss the image with the folder to add some lovely texture.

Supplies:
- Festive Foliage 3D Embossing Folder
- Festive Foliage Stamp Set
- Rouge and Crimson Crisp Dye Ink
- Jet Black Crisp Dye Ink
- Antique Gold Sequins



Here's another quick and easy way to use an embossing folder...lightly mist patterned paper with water, to help prevent cracking, then run through embossing machine with folder. 

Treat the paper with an anti-static powder tool, then rub the embossed areas with clear embossing ink and heat emboss with embossing powder.


This green and gold are perfect together!

Supplies:
- Festive Foliage 3D Embossing Folder
- Festive Foliage Stamp set (sentiment)
- Acrylic Pour 6x6 Paper Pad
- Clear Embossing Ink
- Rose Gold Embossing Powder
- Gold Mirror Cardstock

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps September Krafty Peeks...Day TWO! Long Landscapes!

 


 Welcome back to Day TWO of our September Krafty Peeks!

Are you excited about what you've seen so far!?  Are you ready for more?

I hope your answer was yes because we've got more fabulous fun for you today!



The stamp set we are 'peeking' for you today is from 
artist Allison Cope
 and it's called.....

LONG LANDSCAPES!


This amazing set features four fantastic scenic backdrops that you can use on their own or paired with so many other stamped images! 


I stamped the farm scene on watercolour cardstock, colouring with watercolour pencils. I then die cut the image with a set of stitched rectangle dies from Simon Says Stamps, piecing the image back together with foam adhesive starting in the middle.
The background is one of the Photoplay papers from the add on set die cut with an older MFT cover die, layered over kraft cardstock.

 Check out LONG LANDSCAPES in so many awesome creations today as you hop around the Krafty Team's blogs!  You'll also see the new stencils, Add-On bundle and hybrid ink along the way! 

 Be sure to leave some love at each stop on the hop because there will be a giveaway of some krafty $$ to the shop! 

You'll see more of our September goodies all week, and then everything will be released after our LIVE Online Release Party on Saturday afternoon at 2pm ET in the Krafty Friends facebook group!
