Altenew Whimsical Wonder Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hey everyone! It’s time for the April 2021 Stamp Release, which means I’m so excited to join Altenew for the brand new Whimsical Wonder Stamp Collection (ALT) and Blog Hop! Thanks so much to Nicole Watt for relaying you over to my blog. If you want to relive the amazing project ideas from the team of designers for this release, head back over to the Altenew Card Blog or keep reading to find the complete blog list. Don’t miss the wonderful giveaway opportunities as well–more on that down below!

Whimsical Wonder Collection

First, for all your ‘complete set syndrome’ needs is the small decal set for the Artist Markers released in February 2021. The Sunshine Valley Garden Set and Water Garden Set also feature beautiful floral art on the marker box packaging. The decal set also includes the colored art that you can affix to the clear acrylic holder that the markers come in…or anywhere for that matter.

I have a weakness for patterend paper. Patterned paper is one of those items that I love to leave pristine and never use. Alas, I made the jump and showcased the beautifully smooth paper with Craft-a-Flower: Rose. I replaced the solid layer of the die set with the Poured Acrylic Patterned Paper.

Materials and Supplies

Poured Acrylic 6X6 Paper Pack

Craft-a-Flower: Rose

Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan Set

Label Love Stamp Set

I can see the Tie Dye Motifs Stamp Set being a long-time favorite of mine. This stamp set is one of those free-style layering sets–you cannot go wrong with how you layer them or what colors you have first. I found that the more layers you put and the greater the variation the better your background becomes. I am surprised with how convincing the tie dye art on this stamp set is.

These next two cards feature the new embossing folders in the Whimsical Wonder Release. I did two of the same technique, just with different outcomes. I made a green gradient using the Mixed Media Inks for a more chalky appearance. I overlaid the embossed panel on some Woodgrain Bark Cardstock and finished the sentiment with a die cut word and sentiment strip.

Materials and Supplies

Scalloped Flowers 3D Embossing Folder

Mixed Media Inks

Mega Hope Die

Sentiment Strips 2 Stamp Set

I did the same embossing folder technique on this card as the previous embossing folder card. This time I used my Obsidian Pigment Ink to get this pure black background. I overlaid some leftover die cuts from the older Polish Papercuts 3D Die Set onto the embossed background. Then I added some metallic splatter in ROYGBV order.

Materials and Supplies

Folk Art Motif 3D Embossing Folder

Polish Papercuts 3D Die

Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan Set

Obsidian Pigment Ink

For my last card, I made this watercolor scene–I thought the whimsical feel was appropriate for the release. I used the Altenew watercolor papers and watercolors to paint this sleepy kitty. True story, this cat is modeled after my own Felis catus grey tabby.

Materials and Supplies

Dreamy Cat Stamp and Die Bundle

Watercolor 36 Pan Set

Artists’ Watercolor Brushes – Round

Pure White Ink Spray

  1. The black card is so dramatic! It was a great idea to combine the embossing folder with the complimentary die cuts. I love the new poured color paper pack and the tie dye is so fun. FANTASTIC new products and you used them in such a unique way. Thanks for the great ideas!
