Altenew Quiet Reflections Release

Altenew Quiet Reflections Release

| , ,


The holidays are upon us, and now, more than ever, it’s a great time to take a moment for yourself. Whether that’s reading, meditating, or crafting, it’s all an opportunity to quiet the noise around you and take time for reflection and self-care. I hope today’s new release inspires you to find some quiet reflection time in the coming weeks – time to be creative, and thankful for making it through 2020. You should be arriving from Jenny Colacicco’s blog. If not, you can track back to the Altenew Card Blog to start at the beginning, or continue around until you loop back here.

release bundles

There’s a nice selection of bundles this month! If you’re crazy for the 3D Embossing Folders like I am, you can get the duo at a discount!

and new inks

But, seriously, lets not forget about the NEW INKS!!! These three sets fit into the existing collection in a perfect way. You’ll find gorgeous orange-reds in Martian Terrain, mellow yellow-olives in Nature’s Wonders, and cool blues in Northern Shore.

quick geometric

Let’s start with a simple project with a metallic pow! Like all of the background stamps from Altenew, the Dots and Boxes stamp set makes projects super easy! I wanted to use this deep aqua cardstock to really let the copper embossing stand out. All it needed was a simple high-contrast sentiment strip. Done and done!

luxurious texture

If you haven’t tried the 3D Embossing Folders, what are you waiting for? The impressions are so deep that you can do really cool things, like mix them with embossing paste! That’s what I did here.

After embossing the Ornamental Feature 3D Embossing Folder with a piece of Gold Mirror cardstock, I used Embossing Paste and a palette knife to get the paste worked into the nooks and crannies. What a lovely effect!

soaring slimline

I loved exploring the new Peaceful Serenity stamp set and pairing it with the Soar mini stamp & die bundle. The line art style and fonts were a perfect match, so it only made sense to me to put them together! To make the scene stretch across this 7″ slimline, I masked and stamped an extra mountain, filling in any missing black lines with my Fine Liner pens.

To create the goose reflection, I used the reflection stamp with watercolor applied directly to the stamp. Once I had it stamped on the panel, I used my water brush to blend out the lines a little so it would all look seamless.

a quick color peek

We didn’t receive the new inks until after my samples were complete and submitted, but, I put this project together so I could share with you my favorite color from the new release. It’s from the Martian Terrain set and it’s called Burnt Red. Isn’t it lovely? I used it with the Mini Poppy stamp set that was recently released as a free promotion.

Thank You!

Time is precious and I’m truly grateful that you chose to spend a few minutes of your day here!
I would love to connect with you on Instagram, YouTube, and Pinterest where we have the opportunity to share and interact even more!

  3. Your slimline mountain scene is so pretty! Love the reflection/ water you made. The copper embossed background is so pretty and easy, and the contrasting sentiment strip is perfect. The last card is so fun- I like the idea of adding embossing past to the 3-D image- never would have thought of that but it seems fun to try!
