Blog Hop

Hi there! It's Laurie here on this fun release day! Altenew's new stamp and die releases are so much fun, aren't they? The Today Is the Day Collection is packed with incredibly unique and versatile stamps, dies, coloring stencils, and more. I have a clean and simple card inspiration that will surely spark your creativity! But first, let's take a quick look at the new products in this collection.

Today Is the Day

Today Is the Day Collection

With the start of a new season, this release reminds us to seize the day and make every moment count! It features playful images and sentiments to help you or a loved one enjoy life, in addition to coordinating dies and a new fan favorite…Simple Coloring Stencils! The release is finished off with a vibrant paper pack so you can easily add color and pattern to your projects. Today is the day!

Project Inspiration

I wanted to share a clean and simple card I made with one of the new stamp sets called This is Your Day! This set is full of the coolest sentiments and there is a coordinating die set available to make them pop!

Today Is the Day CollectionTo create this card, I took 3 strips of cardstock that coordinated closely with Coral Bliss, Chamomile, and Butternut Inks, all from Altenew.  I cut 1/2″ strips of cardstock and added them to the card front at an angle.

Today Is the Day CollectionNext, I stamped the sentiment. Happiness comes in 3 parts so you can create this with any color combination you can think of! I die cut it with the coordinating die and popped it up using foam tape.

I stamped the rest of the sentiment, also from the This is Your Day Stamp Set, in Obsidian Black Ink.  Using a few of the Black Enamel Dots, I gave the simple card front a little bit of shine.

Today Is the Day CollectionI hope you liked today's clean and simple card project! Enjoy this amazing release hop!
