Welcome back for another Altenew Stamp, Die + more release! Not only do we have new stamps and dies to share, but we also have some fun new accessories too! You should be arriving from Nathalie DeSousa’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.

aah, those summer nights!

This month’s release is themed “Summer Nights”. It is an eclectic mix of everything from camping to constellations, and of course, florals! The bonus accessories are waxes and wax seals so you can seal your envelopes in style, or use the seals on your projects!

hello, beautiful!

My first project features the #1 stamp set on my must have list from this release. It’s called Beauty Within, and let me tell you, there’s beauty on the outside too! LOL! As you may know, my favorite Altenew set is Beautiful Day. This set is very similar and will pair perfectly with that set, and it’s companion, Remember This.

I wanted to show off the beautiful lines in the stamp, so I just used a few colored pencils to add in hints of color. I paired the arrangement with the new Nesting Ovals. This is actually the negative leftovers from the ovals, stacked on top of each other, with the Marsh Land washi in the background. See that wax seal? That’s the Blooming Bud stamp in Enchanted Gold from the Wax Sticks collection. Be on the lookout for this and another style in my other projects!

with deepest sympathy

Sympathy cards are a necessity in anyone’s card stash. For as reluctant as we are to have them on hand, it’s always the one we need when we are least prepared. I was happy to see a sympathy sentiments stamp set in this release. It’s called With Deepest Sympathy. There are good quotes in the set that are appropriate for both inner and outer greetings – making it easy to say something without having to come up with our own words.

I went quick and simple for this project using a full washi background (Botanical Rhapsody is a perfect fit!) and a simple embossed sentiment. This card can be made in under 5 minutes, but is still striking enough to carry the feeling and emotion it needs to.

Love Altenew? Check out all of my projects that feature this amazing company!

make it!

Let’s take a few minutes to make this sympathy card together. You’ll be glad to have this one in your stash, and can make them on-demand when you need another in the future.

hello astro!

I love astrology (yes, I do read my weekly horoscope) and have long been eyeing up the Zodiac constellation dies from Altenew. The Splatter Constellations stamp and die set is a perfect alternative, with all of the zodiac represented in both the stamp set and the dies. The splatter look is fun and causal. Group a whole bunch together to make a night sky, or call out a single constellation to recognize the recipient. You choose!

There’s another wax seal in these pics. See it? This is the Just Hello stamp paired with the Sapphire Wax Seal Beads and Wax Melting Spoon.

Thank You!

Time is precious and I'm truly grateful that you choose to spend a few minutes of your day with me! If you are in love with my projects and would like to see more, please support my business by following me on Instagram, YouTube, and Pinterest.

    • I enjoy seeing your cards. The black and white cards are very inspiring. I really like the Libra card (and I’m a Libra, too). The blue watercolored background is lovely.

  3. Great sympathy card info. Washi tapes have come a long way, and have so many to choose from in the crafting circles. Altenew has really pretty ones, just as you used here. The zodiac card is really nice and something everyone has in common. Adding to wish list. Thanks for sharing your skills.

  15. Lovely minimal palettes and use of washi tape on your first floral cards. Thanks for sharing your tips and the technique video.

  16. Good shares. Can’t wait to give the wax a try and test for flexibility. Want to make sure if won’t crack if used on the outer envelope when it goes through the sorting machines.

  17. Ooo, I love your minimal coloring. It’s so delicate and lovely, which is especially nice for a sympathy card like you made. Also, I’m a huge fan of blue, so I will take that deep blue watercolor background any day.
