Altenew July Release Blog Hop (& Giveaway!)



Hello! And welcome to my stop in the Altenew July 2016 Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Sveta’s blog, if not, no worries. You can always start from the beginning at the Altenew blog or find a full list of the hop at the bottom of this post.

I am just blown away by how amazing this release is and so honored to be hopping along with the talented Altenew team today. I am sharing a couple of cards using all new July stamps.

kiwi koncepts

Let’s start with the coffee and friends card! I know how much all of you love your tea and coffee. This card uses the new stamp set called Coffee Love. Oh the possibilities with this set is tremendous. I was immediately inspired to watercolor with these beautiful, sketchy illustrations. It was really difficult to decide which stamps I wanted to use because I loved all of them, but I went with my gut and picked out the espresso to watercolor. (I love my Bialetti stovetop espresso maker so this was a no brainer for me… haha!)

The whole card is watercolored with Gansai Tambi watercolors. I created a real coffee ring with a cup and some brown watercolor. But if you’re not comfortable making your own, there’s a coffee ring stamp in this release too!

I love the stamp set in my next card so so soooo much! It is called Floral Shadow. Wow right?

kiwi koncepts

The solid shadow images are perfect for ombre stamping with a dash of water. It creates such a lush watercolor look and it’ll look amazing no matter how you stamp. I used a variation of distress inks to ink up my stamps, sprayed on some water, and stamped it into watercolor paper. As a finishing touch, I added just a spritz of speckling around the flowers.

Let’s not forget about that sentiment because that brush lettering is so beautiful!! The sentiment is also from a new set, called Floral Sprig. I stamped it in black to stand out amongst the flowers.

    Lovely clean and simple cards,love the “cute”ness of the coffee set while still being grownup, the floral shadows really can be useful but also pretty in their own right thanks for sharing them both and the chance to win
