Hello there everyone! Happy Friday! Lydia here, and welcome to the Summer Love Release Blog Hop and Giveaway!
I have a card to share with you, but first, let's take a look at this new collection of embossing folders and stencils!
Summer Love Collection
‘Tis the season for summer love! This release includes stunning floral, geometric, and leafy embossing folders. They would each make a fabulous feature on your next project, or they can be used as a background element for added texture. We have also included a stencil set that can color in the different elements of one of the geometric embossing folders. For added versatility, this set can also be used on its own. You're sure to fall in love with this collection of goodies!
The icing on the cake is the new Crafter's Essential Scoring Board, complete with an innovative tool we customized ourselves! It is part ball stylus (for precise scoring) and part bone folder (for crisp folding). We can't wait to see what you create!
Summer Love Project Inspiration
Today, I'm sharing how to ink blend and 3D-emboss die-cuts using this release's new embossing folders and stencils.
I started by cutting Courageous You Die from Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock. Then, I lined up the die-cut into place within the Sunshine Blossoms 3D Embossing Folder to emboss the design. I did this 3 times for the 2 cards.
For the first card, I added a base color layer to 2 of the embossed die-cuts using Sunray Ink all over and a little Pink Pearl Ink on the flowers.
Once the base had color, I then used Courageous You Layering Stencil to add a second layer. I used Chamomile and Coral Bliss Inks for the flowers and Grass Field Ink for the leaves. Snapdragon and Marigold Inks were used for the flower centers.
I didn't add a base layer of ink for the second card. Instead, I used the Courageous You Simple Coloring Stencil and inked through using pastel rainbow ink colors. I added Pink Pearl, Sunkissed, Chamomile, Firefly, Volcano Lake, Eastern Sky, and Hydrangea Inks.
The sentiments for the cards are from Courageous You Stamp Set.
To see how these cards came together, please watch the video below or over on YouTube:
I hope you were inspired to create with the new products in our Summer Love Collection. Let's get on with the giveaway and blog hop!

Beautiful products! Great cards!
Gorgeous cards!!! I really need the scoring board!!!
Really pretty flowers. I’m looking forward to seeing them up close.
Phenomenal release as always although its my first hop
I couldn’t comment on Laurie Patterson’s blog because it went to a weird page that asked me to ALLOW to show I am human. I hope that nothing bad happens!!! I hope that your designers will not use these on their blogs anymore because I won’t do it again. It went to a page that says I can win prizes–I won’t sign up. But I hope it didn’t cause problems because I clicked allow both times…
Thank you for sharing this info and bringing it to our attention. We will look into the designer’s blog setting and make sure it’s safe to visit. Much appreciated, Sharon.
The embossing folders and stencils are gorgeous! I’m looking forward to all of the inspiration on the hop.
I went back to her blog, and it was normal this time. I don’t know why. I had tried 2 or 3 times previously, and kept getting the robot on a screen, and prompts telling me to click ALLOW. I wish I hadn’t clicked…..
Your cards are gorgeous! Thank you for sharing the video. Love the new black scoring board.
I love the texture and designs on all of these cards! Ready to start the hop!
Another great release from Altenew!
I love your new 3d embossing folders!
Great news products (as always! )
Two very cool looks!
Love the cards!!! Always great releases!
Such a wonderful release! Love the embossing folders.
Thanks for sharing.
I love your cards Lydia, they are so beautiful with the soft blended florals.
Congrats on another great release! I’m impressed with this variety of 3D folders-boy, I have so many “2D folders” but I will have to start saving for the improved 3D ones. They are so detailed. Plus, the layering stencils are great for card makers like me who are not coloring pros! I love the two cards created with th Sunshine Blossoms products-so many ideas for this, especially after going through the Blog Hop!
I am looking forward to seeing all the great cards.
Love all the possibilities of alcohol inks.
