Altenew December Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Posted by Katy Weade

Hello, Everyone! I'm so excited that Blitsy is a part of Altenew's December Release Blog Hop today! I know our current customers will love what you see, but also wanted to really quick welcome any new readers who may have just discovered us from the Hop. You probably made your way here from Kreative Kymona, but if not you may want to grab a cup of coffee and start from the beginning of the hop HERE.

December Release Inspiration

First, can we talk for a second about the brand new Mini Blossom Die Cutting Machine? I have it on my desk right now and it is simply beautiful. It's Black and White with Gold Floral accents throughout. The mouth is wider (3") than I have seen on other mini die cutting machines, which is great because you have more Die options that way! It also comes with 2 very sturdy plates, which are a nice length (6 1/4"), also giving you more Die options. The machine is compact, making it easily portable. If you go to crops this will be your best friend. Or, if you find yourself crafting at your kitchen table like I often do, you can easily move it back to where it really belongs :) The Mini Blossom is designed to be used with Altenew Dies and other wafer thin metal dies.

Above you'll see 2 cards made using a couple of the new Stamp and Die Sets. Both cards combine the Flower Arrangement Stamps / Dies and the Peony Spray Stamp / Die. Both cards have some simple watercolor for the background and the top one has some added detail with the Peony Spray lightly stamped throughout.

I love the varying sizes of the flowers in the Flower Arrangement set and totally get why they named it that - because you can create so many different arrangements with the three flowers or even mix and match them with other sets! You can see how easy it is to mix and match on the bottom card where the Peony pops up from behind the other flowers.

I'm in love with the scripted sentiments, which are certain to get a TON of use for everyday cards. (My goal is to write like that one day, but until then I need to thank Altenew for the pretty stamped option!).


To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to SIX lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and Altenew Scrapbook Blog by Friday, December 15th for a chance to win. Six winners will be announced on the Altenew Card Blog and Altenew Scrapbook Blog on Sunday, December 17th.
