October 2022 Just Imagine Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in Total Prizes!) | NEW Stamps, Dies, Stencils, & More


Hello and welcome here! 

If you're hopping in order you are joining me from Therese Calvird and you can return to the beginning of the hop at anytime right here at the Altenew Card Blog.

I have so many wonderful projects to share with you and you can see all the wonderful new release goodies in the Altenew shop!

Let's begin with some beautiful stand-alone dies!

There are so many wonderful possibilities with the Triangle Madness Die set. I've paired this card with the Versatile Greetings Hot Foil Plate and Die.

Switch up the colours and you get a completely different look!

I stacked all the inside pieces leftover from the previous card and assembled this card front which I then layered over a piece embossed with the Deck Planks 3D embossing folder. 

Next up is this super fun cover plate, Geo Tiles Cover Die!

This card uses the inside pieces from the die cut, I used the die cut as the pattern and adhered all these pieces within and then removed the die cut.

This card uses the cover die piece cut from coloured card stock along with some inlaid pieces in Gold Foil card stock and the new Holiday Greetings Hot Foil Plate and Die.

This colour combination with the GeoTiles Die would also make a great Christmas card, just swap out the greeting!

I love the geometrics in this release and the next few projects feature the Tessellation Puzzles Die set. The possibilities are practically endless with this set. 

I first created the card above with Gilded Glitter card stock.

Then the card below with a mix of glitter and coloured card stock and the new Holiday Greetings Hot Foil Plate and Die!

And how about a scrapbook layout?

If you love the BAF: Wild Rose set and hot foiling, you can now get yourself the Wild Rose Hot Foil Plate Set! I've combined the two for the blooms on this layout!

Here I've paired the Outlined Thank You Die with the Essential Alphas Hot Foil Plate, Die and Simple Coloring Stencil.

This card re-uses a piece of the packaging from the 9x12 Watercolor paper pad.

While I'm loving the geometrics in this release, I can't resist a beautiful floral! The Gracious Peonies Stamp Set is a large bloom that fills an A2 card front and includes lots of great sentiments as well!

It's large size makes it excellent to use as an accent on a 12x12 scrapbook layout!

I inked the blooms with the Gracious Peonies Simple Coloring stencil only, then die cut with the coordinating die. The Versatile Greetings Hot Foil Plate and Die Set made it easy to create the title for this layout.

Fairy Tale Florals is one of my all time favouring Altenew sets and I love that there is now a coordinating stencil and embossing folder! I stamped, die cut and then embossed the die cut in the Fairy Tale Florals 3D Embossing Folder.

This next card uses the Fairy Tale Florals Simple Coloring Stencil only.

I'm loving the no-line coloring look of the stencil!
