Early Access Bundle May 2023 Monthly Subscription Release

May 2023 Marvelous Monthly Series

Lovely rocktrumpets, peonies, marigolds, apple blossoms, and more! This release has all you need for card making, scrapbooking, and journaling. Your paper crafting garden is sure to be blooming once you add these fun products to your stash. We can’t wait to see what you create!

But first, let me share how to make a card using hot plates in 2 ways!

20230501 141621 1

I started by hot foiling Spark Joy Decorative Flowers Hot Foil Plate, 3 times, onto a piece of Navy Cardstock using Rose Gold Hot Foil. I then colored the hot-foiled images using the coordinating simple coloring stencils and pigment inks. Pigment inks are best for adding color to dark cardstock as they sit on the surface. The inks I used were Frosty Pink and Coral Berry Pigment Inks for the flowers; Frayed LeafForest Glades, and Evergreen Pigment Inks for the leaves; and Warm Sunshine Pigment Ink for the flower centers. I then let them dry and die cut using the coordinating die.

For the background, I used the same hot foil plate but this time instead of using it to hot foil, I used it to stamp instead. I inked the hot foil plate using Antique Gold Ink before repeatedly stamping the image onto a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ panel of Navy Cardstock.  Once this was complete I adhered this onto a white 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card base and then added the die cut images into place using Instant Dimension Foam Tape. Before adding the sentiment, from Build-A-Garden: Rocktrumpet, I added a little gold splatter using Metallic Watercolor Pan Set.

    I admit I’m totally addicted to Altenew, especially the amazing Craft-A-Flower sets! I’ve had last month’s Zinnia set for a couple of weeks and I can’t stop playing with it. Now I see the lovely peony set — that one’s definitely on my wish list!

    I’m new to the Craft-A-Flower sets, but this one is my favorite of all the new products in this great release. I love how you incorporated the keyhole and arrow in the center of the flowers to help when lining them up.

    In a sooner, than later blog, please explain the new fresh inks vs. the crisp inks. I appears the fresh inks have the same names as the crisp inks. Will my current re-inkers be used on the fresh ink pads?

    All the new products are gorgeous, but I especially like the new craft your life project kit Marigold. The stenciling so many designers did was wonderful. I really like the size of the stamp and the look of the stenciling. It’s so artsy and reminds me of the paint by numbers art.
